The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is encouraging commercial and recreational fishermen, seafood dealers and harvesters to participate in an Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP) survey, which has been developed to better understand the marine fishing community’s views on electronic harvest reporting systems.
The ACCSP is a cooperative state-federal program to design, implement and conduct marine fisheries statistics data collection programs and to integrate those data into a single data management system that will meet the needs of fishery managers, scientists and fishermen.
Information from this survey will be used during a workshop in the fall of 2013 that is being held to develop recommendations on how to improve new and existing electronic reporting systems, which will be shared with fishermen and fishery management agencies.
Please take a few minutes to provide your input on electronic reporting options. All information is held strictly confidential. Go to http://www.surveymonkeycom/s/ACCSP_ereporting to begin the survey.
