Improved Timeliness, Reporting Accuracy, and Expanding Online Reporting for Commercial Fisheries in Maryland

MD DNR was awarded funds through ACCSP since 2003 to improve timeliness and reporting accuracy by expanding online reporting for commercial fisheries. Most recently, MD DNR focused an extensive outreach effort to promote online reporting for federal and non-federal dealers, charter captains, crabbers, and fishermen. MD DNR also worked diligently to mail announcements and outreach materials explaining the benefits of electronic reporting, how to go about obtaining an account, and all reporting related notifications to interested parties. To reach interested parties, remote meetings are attended to meet watermen and train license holders how to sign-up for and use the online reporting system. As an additional step for training on SAFIS, MD DNR has worked with a contractor to create video tutorials that walk watermen through the online reporting process. The tutorials show watermen how to set up favorites or default settings, add trip reports, add negative reports, and add a charter trip reports.

The continuation of online reporting will allow MD DNR to more accurately and efficiently manage particular fisheries and their respective quotas. Up to the minute data collection will help MD DNR better manage fisheries harvest, provide additional time to notify fishermen about fishery closures, and allow monitoring of individual quotas.
