Vessel Permit System Data Set

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

GARFO issues federal fishing permits annually to owners of fishing vessels who fish in the Greater Atlantic region, as required by federal regulation. These permits are required to be renewed annually. Intra-year applications are required if the vessel owner adds or drops permitted fisheries, changes the vessel's name or ownership. The dataset includes information on vessels, owners, permitted fisheries, and gear types. This dataset describes the back-end tables that store the VPS data. It tracks a vessel's permit status, including when a permit has been cancelled due to CPH (confirmation of permit history) issuance.
