FEB 15, 2018 - Mid-Atlantic Council to Offer Training Workshops on Electronic Vessel Trip Reporting for the For-Hire Community

Postby EC NEWELLMAN » Thu Feb 15, 2018 4:51 pm

The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) will hold a workshop Saturday, February 24 in Tom's River, NJ, to help for-hire vessel operators prepare for upcoming electronic reporting requirements.

Beginning March 12, 2018


All vessels with federal charter or party permits for species managed by the Mid-Atlantic Council will be required to submit electronic vessel trip reports (eVTRs) while on trips carrying passengers for hire.

eVTRs must be submitted through a NOAA-approved software application within 48 hours following the completion of a fishing trip.

While all software options for electronic reporting will be briefly discussed, the workshops will primarily focus on training for the SAFIS eTrips/mobile and eTrips Online systems developed by the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP). Participants will receive hands-on assistance with navigating the eTrips application, setting up favorites, and creating and editing trip reports.

Instruction will be led by Rick Bellavance, owner/operator of Priority Fishing Charters in Point Judith, Rhode Island, and ACCSP staff.

Workshop Date and Location:

Saturday, February 24
9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Clarion Hotel & Convention Center
815 Route 37 West, Toms River, NJ
Phone: (732) 341-6101
