|Title:||Golden crab logbook system|
|Short Name:||Golden crab logbook system|
In November 1995, a voluntary logbook program for the golden crab fishery in the waters under the jurisdiction of the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (SAFMC) was initiated by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). This Golden Crab Trip Report Logbook program became mandatory when regulations for the golden crab fishery management plan went into effect on October 28, 1996. Regulations require that all fishers that have been issued a Federal vessel permit for the golden crab fishery in the South Atlantic region must complete and submit a logbook form for each fishing trip on which golden crabs are caught. All reporting must be done on log forms that are provided by the Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) and must be returned to the SEFSC for data processing.
The golden crab resource and fishery are now protected by a Fishery Management Plan (FMP).
Fishing activity for a single trip is reported on one log form. The form is designed so that fishers can report the catch, number of traps, fishing location, depth and soak time for each line or string of traps that are hauled during the trip. Incidental catch information was estimated by fishers and reported on the Golden Crab Trip Logbook forms.
The reporting regulations require that a logbook must be submitted for every trip where golden crabs are caught (possessed). If a permitted vessel did not fish during a calendar month, a report has to be submitted stating that the vessel was inactive with regard to golden crab fishing during that month.
