KODIAK- A federal agency is planning to measure the economic impact of fishing businesses.

Notices posted in the Federal Register show the National Marine Fisheries Service plans to survey U.S. seafood processors and bait-and-tackle shops during 2014. Survey data will be incorporated into impact statements produced by the federal government before an action is taken.
Tackle business owners will be asked to characterize and quantify their operational costs and sales revenue and describe their clientele.
Seafood processors will be asked for plant details, including operating costs, labor and revenue.
Public comments on the surveys are being taken through the first week of January.
