Why Rec Fishing MattersPercentage of Catch


How catch and effort data are used l.jpg

How Catch and Effort Data are Used

  • Stock Assessments

    • Removals from stock

    • Size and age composition of population

    • Abundance (CPUE)

  • Fishery Management

    • Allocation

    • Set and track quotas/ACLs

    • Set size limits; seasons; catch limits

  • Economic Assessment

    • Determine economic impact of regulations


Concerns about the quality of current recreational data l.jpg

Concerns about the Quality ofCurrent Recreational Data

  • What We Heard From Recreational Stakeholders, States, & Councils:

    • Lack of confidence, trust in estimates of catch and effort

    • Estimates are not sufficientlyprecise for current managementneeds

    • Estimates are not sufficientlytimely for current managementdecisions


Nrc recommendations l.jpg

NRC Recommendations

  • Re-design current survey programs to improve:

    • Sampling and estimation procedures,

    • Applicability to various kinds of management decisions

    • Usefulness for social and economic analyses

  • Improve communications, outreach, and education.

    • Advise, inform, and educate

    • Institutionalize outreach and communication

    • Engage angler associations as partners


Nrc recommendations7 l.jpg

NRC Recommendations

  • Establish comprehensive, universal angler list frame with national coverage to support future telephone surveys of recreational fishing effort.

  • Treat For-Hire sector as “commercial”, establish mandatory requirements for timely reporting, and conduct sampling to verify self-reported data.

  • Achieve much greater degree of standardization among state and federal surveys.


Nrc recommendations8 l.jpg

NRC Recommendations

  • Analyze potential biases within current sampling and estimation designs: address possible undercoverage bias (CHTS; night fishing; private access fishing; discards)

  • Consult with expert statisticians to develop improved designs based on current sampling theory

  • Add expertise/personnel needed to continually evaluate and improve survey design and execution

  • Provide ongoing technical evaluation and modification to meet emerging management needs.


Magnuson stevens reauthorization l.jpg

Magnuson-Stevens Reauthorization

  • Improve “quality and accuracy” of MRFSS data

  • Implement NCR recommendations to the extent feasible

  • Develop National Saltwater Angler Registry

Where We Are Heading


Marine recreational information program12 l.jpg

Marine Recreational Information Program

MRIP will enhance accountability, timeliness, and decision-making ability

It will not be a silver bullet solution to all fisheries management issues


Mrip national standards regional implementation l.jpg

MRIP: National Standards, Regional Implementation

  • National Standards

    • MRIP will develop enhanced survey design, implementation and management methodologies, and adopt standards and best practices

    • MRIP will establish national goals, strategies and an implementation program for outreach to build stakeholder awareness and support for the program


Mrip national standards regional implementation14 l.jpg

MRIP: National Standards, Regional Implementation

  • Regional Implementation

    • Regional data collection and data use partners will:

      • Evaluate data needs and apply MRIP solutions

      • Determine how best to administer and govern regional surveys

        • Basic survey design

        • Coverage beyond minimum

        • Spatial resolution below state level

        • Length of waves/timeliness of estimates

        • For-hire logbooks or survey

        • Supplemental surveys (e.g. for infrequently-caught spp.)

        • Biological sampling

        • Regional outreach needs

      • Resolve currently unresolved issues

      • Determine available funding support levels and apply funding to regional priorities

      • Ensure consistency with MRIP national standards and best practices


Funding fy 09 final l.jpg

FundingFY ’09 Final

  • $6.2 Million

    • Current annual MRIP budget in FY ’09

    • $3.5 Million

      • FY ’08 MRIP funding (new)

    • $2.7 Million

      • FY ’09 MRIP funding (new)


Funding fy 10 proposed l.jpg

FundingFY ’10 Proposed

  • $8.7 Million

    • President’s FY ’10 Request

    • $6.2 Million

      • MRIP funding from FY ‘09

    • $2.5 Million

      • FY ’10 new MRIP funding for support to states for registry implementation


Implementation approach l.jpg

Implementation Approach


Tracking our progress l.jpg

Tracking Our Progress

  • Project Updates to be issued quarterly

    • Reports progress on current pilot projects by Work Groups/Teams

    • Identifies upcoming activities and projects in development


Mrip work groups l.jpg

MRIP Work Groups

  • Design and Analysis Work Group

  • Data Management and Standards Work Group

  • Highly Migratory Species Work Group

  • For-Hire Work Group

  • National Saltwater Angler Registry Team

  • Communication and Education Team


Mrip in action review of for hire recreational surveys l.jpg

MRIP In Action:Review of For-Hire Recreational Surveys

  • First step

    • Comprehensive documentation & description of survey methods for all for-hire surveys

  • Next

    • Expert consultant review and evaluation of for-hire survey methods---completed March 2009.

  • Goal

    • to provide MRIP with the precise actions that must be undertaken to ensure that the future systems of collecting for-hire data provide accurate, precise and unbiased data that is most useful for management needs (which specifically includes catch estimation needs and stock assessment needs).


Slide21 l.jpg

MRIP In Action:Review of For-Hire Recreational Surveys

  • Findings and recommendations

    • Best practice methods, including:

      • Complete list of for-hire vessels

      • Logbooks: recommended but also requires validation; completeness; enforcement; affordability; timeliness

      • Complete list of landing sites

      • Probability-based selection of sampling units

    • Critiques and recommended improvements for existing surveys


Next steps 2009 projects l.jpg

Next Steps: 2009 Projects

  • Develop survey design for mandatory logbook-based pilot projects

  • Test overall feasibility of implementing logbook programs

  • Develop and pilot test validation methods

  • Develop and pilot test electronic reporting and data entry methods

Connecting Data and Management: ACLs & Accountability

  • ABC may not exceed OFL. The distance between OFL and ABC depends on how scientific uncertainty is accounted for in the ABC control rule. Recommend: OFL > ABC in most cases

  • The ACL may not exceed the ABC.

    • ABC is one of the “fishing level recommendations” under MSA § 302(h)(6).

Corresponds with MSY

Accountability Measures (AMs):

  • AMs should prevent the ACL from being exceeded. If a fishery does not have very good inseason controls, then ACTs are recommended in the system of AMs so that the ACL is not exceeded.

  • Types of AMs:

    • ACTs

    • Inseason measures to prevent reaching the ACL

    • AMs to address an overage of the ACL

      • Operational factors leading to an overage

      • Mitigate biological harm to the stock, if any

AMs triggered
