Following the pub1 ication of Statistical Bulletin Vol. 31 in September
1983, the NAFO Secretariat was informed of numerous errors in the fishing
effort data reported by two countries for 1977-81. The revised data affect a
significant number of effort records published in Table 5 of Vol. 27 to 31
but the nominal catch records remain unchanged. Since Table 5 constitutes
about two-thirds of an entire volume, the Scientific Council of NAFO
recommended that the Secretariat issue revised editions of these volumes as
time and finances permit. Meanwhile, computer listings of the revised data
may be obtained from the NAFO Secretariat upon request.
Volume 30, containing fishery statistics for 1980, and Volume 29,
containing statistics for 1979, were the first and second respectively of the
five volumes to be revised. Recipients should discard the earlier editions of
these volumes. Revised editions of the remaining three volumes will be
forthcoming in 1985 as time and finances permit.
