Commercial fishing harvesters can report their catch quickly and easily online! Reporting electronically has many benefits worth considering, including fulfilling your monthly reporting requirements, saving money on postage, reducing the time it takes to complete hand-written reports, and the added convenience of reporting wherever you are. By using the Standard Atlantic Fisheries Information System (SAFIS) on a desktop computer or the eTrips/Mobile 2 app on a phone or tablet, commercial anglers can submit their trip reports and/or dealer reports.
If you are a commercial harvester, commercial dealer, or party/charter angler who would like to begin online reporting, please contact the Vessel Trip Report (VTR) office for the Division of Marine Resources to set up your SAFIS account by calling (631)-444-0857 or send an email to VTR@dec.ny.gov.
If you have already established a SAFIS account or for more information about the reporting software, review helpful user instructions found below:
