NOAA Fisheries proposes to require the use of electronic logbooks in Hawaii pelagic longline fisheries and on Class C and D vessels in the American Samoa pelagic longline fishery. This proposed rule is intended to reduce human error, improve data accuracy, save time for fishermen and NOAA Fisheries, and provide more rigorous monitoring and forecasting of catch limits. NOAA Fisheries is accepting comments on the proposed rule through July 9, 2021.
