The For-Hire Survey is being conducted by QuanTech under contract to NOAA Fisheries.

The For-Hire Survey has been adopted by the state and federal partners of the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP) as the official method for collecting recreational catch and effort data from the for-hire (charter and party/headboat) fleet. For-hire vessels are sampled weekly from a coast wide vessel directory to report trip information for the previous week's fishing activity; catch information is obtained through a dockside/at-sea field survey.
