Public Fishing Access Site Register
The Marine Recreational Information Program maintains an online database of saltwater fishing access sites, their fishing activity, and local amenities.
The Public Fishing Access Site Register is an online database of more than 3,800 marinas, boat ramps, beaches, and other public fishing access sites along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
The information in the site register helps the Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP) determine where state samplers will conduct the Access Point Angler Intercept Survey (APAIS), which collects information from anglers who have just completed a fishing trip. The register is updated regularly with input from anglers and state fisheries staff.
Using the Register
The site register includes detailed information about site characteristics, site pressure, and nearby amenities, such as cleaning stations, tackle shops, restaurants, and boat repair facilities. Site pressure describes the estimated number of anglers expected to fish at a particular site during a particular time. Accurate estimates of site pressure help us ensure more active sites are sampled more often.
