Account Creation

We are updating the way users access the Fish Online system and are requiring all users to have a username and password (logging in with a vessel permit number and PIN will not be supported after June 1, 2021). If you do not already have a Fish Online user account, you can create one here.

If you already have a user account, you may request your username and/or a new password using the 'Request your username' and/or 'Request a new password' features on the Fish Online homepage.

If you are a Vessel Operator Permit holder wanting to use eVTR, please create your account then call our IT Service Desk at (978) 281-9188 from the telephone associated with your Operator Permit to activate your account.
