Registration is a way for NOAA and anglers to work together to help ensure the long-term future of saltwater fishing. The registry will serve as a national “phone book” of anglers, allowing NOAA to quickly and easily reach current fishermen to learn about their most recent fishing activities.
If you bought a striped bass bonus tag, this would be covered. The state would have all information that the feds are requesting. :huh:

The bounu tag is strictly a state program and there is nothing set up to share information with the feds from this.

I will rephrase my question.

Presently, if you hunt migratory birds you must:

Hunters must purchase a Harvest Information Program (HIP) certification
before hunting ducks, geese, brant, woodcock, rails, snipe, coot or
moorhens (gallinules) in New Jersey and must always hunt with proof in
possession in the license holder. HIP certifications are valid from Sept. 1,
2009 to March 10, 2010.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will use this confidential information
only to conduct migratory bird harvest surveys. Only a small, random
group will be surveyed.
Hunters may purchase an HIP certification via three sales outlets:

1. License Agents

HIP certification may be purchased at any license agent for a $2 fee.
Hunters will have their HIP certification printed on their license.

2. Internet Sales Site

Hunters may purchase an HIP certification for a $2 fee on Fish and
Wildlife’s Internet sales site (WildlifeLicense.com/NJ/) then self-print
the HIP certifications.

3. Telephone Sales Site

Hunters may purchase their HIP certifications using Fish and
Wildlife’s telephone sales process (888) 277-2015. Hunters will receive
a transaction number; record this number for immediate proof of
completing an HIP certification. The actual HIP certification will be
printed on the license and mailed to the hunter. Note: purchases
made via telephone will incur an additional shipping and handling
fee of $5.13.
So, if the state and the federal government could get together and share information for birds, why not fish? What about the other states that have a registry or salt water license in place? How are they sharing information? It seems that using a system that is already in place would be simplest and most cost effective.​
