Enhancing Dealer Reporting in Delaware

The objective of this project funded through the ACCSP from 2008 to 2010 was to transition Delaware from a fisherman-based logbook reporting system to one that includes electronic seafood dealer reporting to gather better information about commercial landings. During this time, DE DFW began a successful outreach campaign to identify dealers and produced a directory listing the primary seafood dealers in the state, creating buy-in and an incentive for the dealers.

Delaware continues to encourage dealers to begin voluntary reporting, so that the state could evaluate the impact of reporting on normal business practices, and introduce the process.
