eLOGBOOK Enhances Existing Logbook Program

ACCSP supported the CT DEEP with the upgrade of its database for the volunteer angler survey/logbook program in 2013. The program has been implemented since the early 1980’s and the previous database that was being used to store the information collected from the logbooks was outdated. The eLOGBOOK application of SAFIS proved to be the right tool at the right time. Although the other ACCSP program partners that use the eLOGBOOK application offer this tool to the public, initially CT DEEP has opted to continue to distribute and collect volunteer angler surveys and enter the  data into the database. Since a large percentage of Connecticut anglers fish in multiple state waters and land in Connecticut, its proven challenging to control the fishing area field. Once this issue can be resolved, Connecticut anglers will have the option to enter their information directly into eLOGBOOKS. CT DEEP will also continue to distribute the paper logbooks so anglers have the ability to take them on their trips to keep track of their catch. These logbooks were designed to match the eLOGBOOK application to assist with the data entry process. Currently, CT DEEP is receiving logbooks from over 40 volunteers and has begun to enter these data. The staff with CT DEEP see this information as a valuable supplement to the MRIP length frequencies and catch rates. Also, the data collected are useful in the management measure analyses (e.g., minimum lengths, creel limits, and seasons) and potentially as a fisheries-dependent time series in stock assessments for the state’s critical species such as summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass.
