Implementation of ACCSP Dealer Module in New Hampshire's Lobster Fishery

The American lobster fishery is the largest and most important commercial fishery within New Hampshire’s waters. Since 1969, through the use of various reporting systems, the NH FGD has monitored the lobster fishery by collecting catch and effort data from lobster license holders. However, it lacked the thoroughness that standardization allows in assessing migratory marine stocks with other program partners. In 2003, NH FGD began instituting ACCSP’s reporting standards in a phased approach utilizing the two-ticket reporting system with lobster dealers reporting lobster landings and harvesters reporting catch and effort data. In 2005, working with the NOAA Fisheries, lobster dealers that were required to report to both the state and federal agencies were then required to report once through SAFIS. In 2006 New Hampshire continued with the second phase by instituting a harvester trip-level reporting program for lobster and coastal harvest fisheries in state waters. The second phase required all harvesters landing greater than 1,000 pounds of lobster to report trip-level information. The remaining licensed harvesters reported monthly summarized catch and effort information. The reported data for both coastal and lobster harvest continued to be collected, uploaded, and used to ACCSP for use in stock assessments, fishery management decisions, and publications.
