TRIP TICKET PROGRAM
The Trip Ticket Program is a system to collect commercial landings and associated information by trip. Trip tickets will replace the current system used to collect most Mississippi commercial landings.
WHO HAS TO REPORT?
A trip ticket must be completed by the dealer or processor when the fisherman transfers (sells) their catch to that dealer or processor OR the commercial fisherman must complete a trip ticket when they land their catch and are not transferring their catch to a licensed dealer or processor, unless otherwise specified by regulation (i.e. selling catch directly to public). Fishermen not selling to a dealer must be in possession of a Fresh Product Permit.
WHEN ARE TRIP TICKETS DUE?
Trip tickets are due by the 10th of the present month for landings for the preceding month. Trip tickets can be sent as often as you like as long as all the trip tickets generated in a month are turned in to the MS Department of Marine Resources (MDMR) by the 10th of the following month.
TRIP TICKET DOWNLOADS
A commercial fisherman must be in possession of a Fresh Product Permit in order to sell seafood to anyone other than a Dealer/Processor. This permit is a no-cost permit that will be associated with the fisherman’s harvest license.
