Your individual data are completely confidential.  That means information about your personal trips and catches will never be shared. Information from your trips will be combined with at least three other fishermen (on other vessels) when describing catch and effort in a public setting.  Fishing locations will be no smaller than 2 square mile blocks that include at least three anglers reporting in that location.  Your individual catch information will be shared with management agencies such as the National Marine Fisheries Service, Councils, and state agencies to enable better fisheries management.
