The Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP) is the system under which recreational fishing data is collected and analyzed. MRIP recently released its draft five-year Strategic Plan and is requesting input on the Plan from stakeholders. MRIP is seeking public feedback as part of their ongoing commitment to improving surveys through collaboration among federal, regional, and state agencies, and the saltwater recreational fishing community. MRIP welcomes all input, and is particularly interested in whether the goals, strategies, and tactics they’ve outlined are likely to achieve the mission and vision stated in the Plan.
The document and details on providing feedback can be found on the homepage of the MRIP website. Comments are due by June 30
