Abstract: Coastal Gulf of Alaska surface trawl catch data were collected from 1999 to 2004. A Nordic 264 surface rope trawl (198-m long, 25-m wide, 35-m vertical height, equipped with a 1.2-cm mesh liner in cod end) was towed at the surface. This file was created to separate surface trawl samples used exclusively from 2001-2004 from gillnet and midwater trawl samples used in prior years. CPUE calculations based on these different gear types may not be directly comparable. Gillnet and midwater trawl catch data from prior years will be reported separately.
