Starting October 17, the National Marine Fisheries Service is asking that owners of HMS permitted vessels, or their designee, report recreational non-tournament swordfish and billfish landings.
The agency has launched a newly designed web-based reporting system at http://www.hmspermits.gov. The new web-based reporting system will be the primary portal for recreational non-tournament swordfish and billfish landings; however, NMFS will maintain and monitor the current toll-free reporting line to assist those vessel owners who do not have access to the internet.
