Mandatory For-Hire Electronic Vessel Trip Reports

Published 05/22/2018

Beginning March 12, 2018, vessels that hold Federal party or charter permits for species managed by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council will be REQUIRED to submit electronic vessel trip reports (eVTRs) for all trips carrying passengers for hire. These eVTRs must be submitted through a NOAA-approved eVTR software application within 48 hours of reaching port following the end of a fishing trip. If you have not set up an account to begin reporting, call the Harbor Light Software helpdesk at 800-984-0810. Our staff at HLS will walk you through the process of submitting your trip reports electronically using eTRIPS mobile or eTRIPS online. Need Support? Go to where you will find training videos/manuals and FAQs. Don't be left behind! Call today.
