WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A fisheries endorsement in USCG vessel documentation terms entitles a vessel to engage in commercial fishing activities.

Meaning


In order to conduct commercial fishing activities in territorial waters of the United States and its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), a vessel must carry on board a certificate of documentation showing a fisheries endorsement on its face.

Context


Vessel documentation is required for all qualified vessels that weigh over 5 net tons in order to participate in commercial activities.

Conclusion


Having the proper endorsements should be taken very seriously as violations can result in heavy fines and possible impoundments.
