The Fisheries Logbook and Data Recording Software (FLDRS) has been tested across a variety of NE fisheries and accounted for more than 6,000 eVTR trips per year in 2014 and 2015, which is over 90% of all eVTRs received. One or more contractors will be selected to work with a target of 20 commercial vessels in Gulf of Maine fisheries, including trawl, gillnet, and longline fisheries. The project will focus on New England-based sector vessels that have been using FLDRS for eVTR reporting through previous collaborations with the NEFSC Data Management Services Division or other groups. The contractor(s) will work to increase GPS use to facilitate advances in data collection and to increase the testing and use of new temperature - depth and inclinometer probes.
