Improved Data Collection and Blue Crab Study in Georgia

In 1999, GA DNR received ACCSP funding to launch the trip ticket program. These funds were used to print trip tickets, conduct outreach, and build a new landings database. Prior to that Georgia had been collecting trip level data for a decade but the effort data was of limited usefulness. By adopting the minimum ACCSP standards and making some changes to state law, Georgia now has robust landings data across all of its fisheries allowing managers to make better decisions.

In 2001, GA DNR also had the opportunity to conduct a fisheries-dependent trap-based study of the blue crab pot fishery. A sample of crabbers were issued logbooks with trap-level data fields for self-reporting, staff conducted observer trips, and data from fixed-location traps were collected. These data gave Georgia’s fishery managers a better understanding of the temporal distribution of blue crabs and contributed to the drafting of a management plan.

In the Data Warehouse, GA DNR has annual summaries from 1950-1977, monthly summaries from 1978-1998, mixed trip reports and monthly summaries from 1989-2000, and trip reports for all fisheries since 2006.
