HMS Electronic Dealer Reporting System

On August 8, 2012, NOAA Fisheries published a final rule (77 FR 47303) that modified existing Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) dealer reporting regulations for Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and bigeye, albacore, yellowfin, skipjack (BAYS) tunas.


Electronic Dealer Reporting (eDealer) System

The new eDealer system allows you to electronically submit all data for HMS except bluefin tuna. For dealers who are currently reporting using paper forms, the system requires submission of the information requested on the prior paper forms along with a number of new data elements necessary for management of HMS.

Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions for additional information on the  electronic dealer reporting requirements.
