As of March 3, 2023, we were notified that the trip declaration will no longer be required for Gulf Permitted vessels and the information listed below is no longer pertinent. Vessels that are dually permitted with a Gulf permit and South Atlantic permit are still required to report, but are not required to hail out with the prior declaration requirements.
The Southeast Regional Office of NOAA Fisheries requires notification of a trip before departure. As a result the following fields are required in addition to the existing SRHS requirements. These changes only apply to Gulf permitted vessels.
This field specifies the type of trip taken such as Headboat, Charterboat, Commercial, or Recreational. Headboat will be the default option.
This field specifies whether fishing occurred this trip. A default value of Intended Fishing Trip will be selected.
