MRIP Fishing Effort Survey Transition Plan Webinars This Week

Good morning everyone. I got this announcement in my email this morning from NOAA Fisheries. I thought y’all might be interested in attending one of these webinars.

NOAA Fisheries recently released a three-year Transition Plan for incorporating estimates from the new mail-based Fishing Effort Survey (FES) into stock assessments and management decisions. The FES will be replacing the Coastal Household Telephone Survey (CHTS) to measure saltwater recreational fishing effort in shore and private boat modes on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts.

To answer any questions you may have, the MRIP team will be hosting two webinars to provide an overview of the Transition Plan. Both webinars will cover the same information, therefore please attend whichever fits your schedule.
