NOAA Upgrades Online Groundfish Trip Notification System

February 9, 2018

Easier to use, mobile friendly

Before leaving on a trip to catch groundfish, Northeast groundfish vessels first notify NOAA about the trip so a fishery monitor or observer can be assigned to the trip if needed. A technical team has been working for more than a year to upgrade the online notification system so it is easier to use, mobile friendly, and can be adapted to new management requirements as they come along.

These significant improvements will come online in late April, and NOAA Fisheries is doing some expanded outreach to get fishing businesses familiar with improvements ahead of the next fishing year, which begins May 1, 2018.
