Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program the principal source of marine fishery statistics for the Atlantic coast

SAFIS

SAFIS provides tools like eDR,
e-1Ticket, eTRIPS, and eLOGBOOK to provide confidential reporting and real-time access to up-to-date information on species caught and their impact on fisheries and quotas.

Recreational Data

ACCSP works with Partners to coordinate recreational fisheries data collection and management on the Atlantic coast. This includes regional coordination of MRIP's APAIS and the For-Hire Telephone Survey.

Data Warehouse

ACCSP's Data Warehouse is populated with fishery-dependent data supplied by the 23 program partners of ACCSP. The Login Data Warehouse allows you to save workbooks and queries.

  • Standardize fisheries data collection

    Data Collection Standards guide partner data collection activities by defining how data should be collected and reported. These standards help ensure consistency across fisheries datasets, making collaborative data solutions possible.

eTrips/Mobile Helps For-Hire Industry Move toward Census Reporting

Over the past few years, recreational catch estimates-particularly for pulse fisheries, such as red snapper, and species rarely encountered through the Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP) -have been contested by anglers and charterboat captains. There is an apparent disconnect between individual experiences on the water and the coast-wide picture of recreational fishing developed by MRIP,…
