The Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP) is the principal source of dependable and timely marine fishery statistics for Atlantic coast fisheries



eTrips/M is the mobile, tablet-based version of ACCSP's eTrips application that allows captains to capture their catch and effort data while at sea, independent of a full-time internet connection. This application is available on tablets only on both  Apple and Android platforms. There is no need for an internet connection at sea.
