Our at-sea monitors collect scientific, management, regulatory compliance, and economic data. They collect these data onboard commercial fishing vessels. These data are needed for the management and monitoring of the annual catch limits and groundfish sectors.
- For multispecies trips, including monkfish, notify for a fishing trip 48 hours prior to planned sail date.
- View your observer data electronically (for groundfish trips). Please have your permit and PIN number available, as well as the pre-trip notification information.
