Title: Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP)
Short Name: Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP)
Status: In Work
Abstract:

The Marine Recreational Information Program, or MRIP, is the new way NOAA Fisheries is counting and reporting marine recreational catch and effort. It is a customer-driven initiative that will not only produce better estimates, but will do so through a process grounded in the principles of transparency, accountability and engagement. MRIP replaces the Marine Recreational Fisheries Statistics Survey, or MRFSS, which has been in place since the 1970s.

Purpose:

MRIP is designed to meet two critical needs.

1. Provide the detailed, timely, scientifically sound estimates that fisheries managers, stock assessors and marine scientists need to ensure the sustainability of ocean resources.

2. Address head-on stakeholder concerns about the reliability and credibility of recreational fishing catch and effort estimates.
