Joint Charterboat Logbook Amendment

Joint Charterboat Logbook Amendment

Proposed actions: The amendment contains actions/alternatives that would require weekly electronic reporting by charter vessels. The actions/alternatives are patterned after the recently implemented headboat electronic reporting requirements.

Most Recent Council Actions: In June 2016, the Council developed a list of core variables to be collected in the for-hire reporting requirements and further reviewed the variables at the September 2016 meeting. The Council is also in the process of implementing a pilot project in cooperation with ACCSP to test the use of a tablet reporting system with 21 charter captains throughout the region.

The amendment is scheduled for final approval in December 2016 to allow consideration of preliminary feedback from the SAFMC-ACCSP electronic reporting pilot study.
