Knowing near real-time VMS position information for U.S. West Coast-based HMS fishing vessels enables effective monitoring of vessel activity for enforcement and assessment purposes. VMS units also provide confirmation of reported vessel fishing activity locations and can help in validation of logbook records accuracy. The requirements also generate information for evaluating the magnitude and distribution of impacts from any changes in regulations that might occur in the future. Observer pretrip notifications allow for the timely placement of at-sea observers onboard vessels at the discretion of the NMFS to collect information on, among other things, bycatch and protected species interactions.
