and the good news is
And the good news is….
  • Basically the same as today
    • VMS declaration must be sent prior to sailing
    • Beginning May 1, 2010, all multispecies vessels would be required to declare into one or more of four broad areas and would be required to declare the gear type to be used
    • All stock areas where fishing may occur would be required to be declared
    • If you start a trip under the wrong code you must return to port and declare the correct code.
    • If you have problems declaring contact the Office for Law Enforcement
vessel hails for dockside monitoring

Vessel Hails for Dockside Monitoring

Mark Grant & Merrie Cartwright

Sector Workshop IV 10/14/09

hails responsibilities
Hails – Responsibilities

Vessel Operator is responsible for initiating hails:

Trip Start: prior to departing port at the beginning of a sector trip.

Trip End: 6h before landing for all trips at least 6h in duration or occurring more than 6h from port. For shorter/closer trips, immediately upon completion of the last tow.

Transmission system

Primary = electronic (e.g.,email via VMS)

Backup (e.g., phone) if confirmation not received

Hail goes to Dockside Monitoring Provider and Sector Manager; either must relay immediately to OLE (other option: direct email drop from vessel to OLE).

for what types of trips must sector vessels hail for dsm
For what types of trips must sector vessels hail for DSM?
  • Any trips for which catch will count against sector Annual Catch Entitlements (ACE):
    • Groundfish
    • Monkfish
    • Skate
    • Non-trap Lobster
  • Trips for which groundfish catch is accounted for in a separate sub-ACL do not need to hail for DSM:
    • Shrimp fishery
    • Small-mesh whiting fishery
hails required information
Hails – Required Information
  • Hail Trip Start:
    • vessel permit number
    • trip ID# (VTR number on the first VTR page of trip)
    • estimated trip duration
    • estimated landing & offloading times if trip will take less than 6h or occur within 6h of port
  • Hail Trip End:
    • vessel permit number & trip ID#
    • offloading location(s), including dock/dealer
    • estimated landing & offloading times
    • estimated weight of each species
vessel selection for dockside monitoring
Vessel Selectionfor Dockside Monitoring
  • DSM coverage overall (and for each Sector) has been set by the New England Fishery Management Council:
    • 50% of trips for the first year
    • 20% for subsequent years
  • Since less than 100% coverage, randomized vessel selection is needed – stratified so that sector’s gear types (and/or other major categories of fishing effort) are proportionally represented.
  • Sectors and/or their Dockside Monitoring Service Provider(s) are responsible for developing and implementing suitable randomization and vessel notification protocols. NMFS can provide a randomization model, if needed (see appendix).
  • During each sector trip, the Provider will notify the vessel (of DSM selection or waiver) in the Trip End Hail confirmation message.
dockside monitoring reporting

Dockside Monitoring – Reporting

Merrie Cartwright & Mark Grant

Sector Workshop IV 10/14/09

approval of monitoring providers
Approval of Monitoring Providers
  • Approval of monitoring providers (both dockside and at-sea) will occur through the rulemaking process that approves sector operations plans and allocates ACEs.
  • The proposed rule will list the providers NMFS proposes to approve. Tentative publication date: Late December 2009 or early January 2010.
  • The final rule will list providers approved to provide dockside and/or at-sea monitoring. Tentative publication date: March 2010.
dockside monitoring vessel responsibilities at landing
Dockside Monitoring – Vessel Responsibilities at Landing

A vessel with DSM waiver must provide copies of VTRs and dealer receipts to Sector Manager within 24 hrs.

A DSM-assigned vessel must wait for the monitor before beginning any offloading (unless notified that monitor has encountered an emergency).

Offloads to more than one dealer or facility (from that one trip) must all be monitored.

The DSM-assigned vessel must provide copies of all VTRs to the monitor.

Any catch that is retained onboard after offloading must be coded as retained catch on the VTR(s).

dockside monitoring report contents
Dockside Monitoring Report – Contents
  • Identifying information: monitor’s name, captain’s name, date, time, vessel permit, dealer permit, etc.
  • NMFS-required information:
    • Dealer scale certification (yes/no)
    • Ice + box weight tare estimate (if scale not tared)
    • Determination of whether all fish have been offloaded
    • Weight estimate of any fish being retained and the reason
    • Weight of offloaded catch by species (and market category, if culled) and dealer signature verifying weights or
    • Copy of the dealer receipt (in which case the monitor must sign the original).
dockside monitoring report cont
Dockside Monitoring Report, cont.
  • Format can be paper forms and/or handheld electronic device.
  • Paper or electronic copies of VTRs (and dealer receipts, if used for weight tally) must accompany (or be included in) the monitor’s report. Original paper copies that are collected must be retained/archived.
  • Report should reach Sector Manager within 24h.
dockside monitoring standards monitoring offload to a truck
Dockside Monitoring Standards – Monitoring Offload to a Truck

If the landings are weighed by a representative of the receiving dealer in front of a Roving Monitor before being loaded into a truck, the protocol is the same as previous (and the event is the final DSM event for that trip).

Otherwise, all fish must be weighed in the presence of a DM at the receiving dealer(s) when the truck offloads – i.e., there will be an RM monitoring the vessel offloading and a DM monitoring the weighing.

dockside monitoring standards monitoring offload to a truck cont
Dockside Monitoring Standards – Monitoring Offload to a Truck, cont.

The Roving Monitor (RM) must gather the same information as a DM, except weights and scale info. In lieu of recording measured weights, s/he must:

Record the number of totes of each species and the captain’s estimate of the weight of each species in each tote.

Ensure that each tote is tagged with identifying information (i.e., for the DM at the receiving end):

trip ID

RM name

tote number

species

Incoming Data
  • Hail Start / Hail End reports
  • Vessel Reports
  • Dockside Monitoring Reports
  • Dealer Reports
  • Discard Rates
submission deadlines
Submission Deadlines
  • Dealers are required to submit reports to NMFS by midnight Tuesday
  • Groundfish vessels are required to submit VTRs to NMFS by midnight Tuesday
  • Sector Managers are required to submit reports to NMFS by midnight on Thursday
    • There will be late reports from dealers & vessels. NMFS & Sector Managers will need to address the timeliness issue with seafood dealers & vessel operators.
    • Sector Managers’ reports will be updated as late reports are received.
    • NMFS will be recompiling internal weekly reports as new data are received. These will be cross matched with Sector Managers’ reports
suggestions and reminders
Suggestions and Reminders
  • Sector Managers’ reporting schedule is aggressive
  • Don’t get behind with the reports & don’t be late as you approach an ACE
  • There will be no tolerance for consistently late reports or consistently inaccurate (e.g., reports always 2 to 3 weeks behind).
  • Let us know if a report will be late due to unforeseen circumstances.
  • Do not wait for late reports from vessels or seafood dealers.
referrals to enforcement
Referrals to Enforcement
  • FSO will refer sector to OLE for:
    • consistent late reporting by Sector Managers
    • consistent incompleteness of reports wrt vessel fishing activity
    • discrepancies in reported location of fishing activity
    • failure to achieve 50% DSM as defined in Ops Plans
  • FSO will refer seafood dealers & vessel owners to OLE for:
    • late & incomplete reports
    • failure to address data quality issues identified by FSO staff
acceptance criteria for data
Acceptance criteria for data
  • Accurate and complete reporting of all fishing trips
  • Accurate accounting of kept catch for all trips
  • Collaborative workshops will be held throughout the year to reconcile differences in data
  • All parties agree that the suite of data is an accurate representation of fishing activity for a sector.
  • NERO is the keeper of the official record (i.e., fishing activity, catch and landings) for each Sector
switching to daily reporting
Switching to Daily Reporting
    • When a sector has harvested 80% of the available ACE for one or more of the stocks for which a sector possess ACE
  • or
    • When 25% (20%?) of the ACE is landed in each of two consecutive weeks
  • Intent: Avoid a situation where a large surge in landings increases the risk of a significant overage of the ACE.
other concerns
Other Concerns
  • How will the disputed data get fixed?
  • How will discrepancies be resolved?
    • Match trip records submitted by Sector Managers and those submitted by vessel operators directly to FSO
vessel hails appendix randomization stratification models

Vessel Hails APPENDIX(Randomization & Stratification Models)

Merrie Cartwright

Sector Workshop IV 10/14/09

50 random vessel selection stratified by gear example
50% Random Vessel Selection, Stratified by Gear – Example

100 vessels in a Sector

60 trawl 30 gillnet 10 hook

Within each gear group, as a vessel hails trip start, determine whether or not the trip is selected for DSM…

For every other trip, generate a random binary number (0 or 1) in Excel [“=RANDBETWEEN(0,1)” with 1: DSM, 0: waived] orflip a coin (heads: DSM, tails: waived).

Whatever that trip gets, the next trip gets the opposite. (Start over with third vessel, fifth vessel, etc.)

Track in a spreadsheet; notify vessels after hail trip end.

ms excel example 50
MS Excel Example – 50%:

To use RANDBETWEEN to generate a random number but prevent the numbers from changing every time the worksheet is calculated, enter =RANDBETWEEN(0,1) in the formula bar, and then press F9 to change the formula to a firm number.

20 random vessel selection stratified by gear example
20% Random Vessel Selection, Stratified by Gear – Example

100 vessels in a Sector

60 trawl 30 gillnet 10 hook

Within each gear group, as fivevessels hail trip start:

Generate a random number between 1 and 5 in Excel “=RANDBETWEEN(0,5)” for the first vessel, and fill in the other numbers following that (e.g. 3, 4, 5, 1, 2) with vessel “5” getting DSM or

Prepare 5 slips of paper, one saying “DSM”, and blindly choose one as each of the five vessels hails.

Track in a spreadsheet; notify vessels after hail trip end.
