Trip Ticket Program Electronic Reporting
Electronic reporting of commercial landings by licensed fish dealers is an alternative to the paper-based trip ticket reporting system. The Division of Marine Fisheries in conjunction with Claude Petersen, formerly of the Southwest Computer Bureau Inc., and now owner of Bluefindata.com, developed a software program that fulfills all the requirements of the N.C. trip ticket program, as well as all federal reporting requirements stipulated by the National Marine Fisheries Service Northeast Region. It is a Microsoft Access-based program compatible with most PC operating systems and can be networked for multiple computers.
NCDMF currently has about 50 fish dealers using the software and submitting commercial landings electronically. Recent enhancements to the software allow dealers to print and export quota-monitoring forms in lieu of paper forms. The software has additional features that aid dealers in their day-to-day business activities such as summary reporting, customizable code lists, and invoice-type receipts.
The software is provided free of charge to any licensed fish dealer with a computer and an Internet connection. If you are interested in using the trip ticket software please notify Grace Kemp at 252-808-8101 or 800-682-2632.
