Establishing a Vessel Account
A vessel account may be established at any time during the year. In order to establish a vessel account, the vessel must be registered to a trawl-endorsed Pacific Coast groundfish limited entry permit, and the owner must submit a vessel account registration request and ownership interest form. Both forms are provided below. The vessel owner must also have completed any required Economic Data Collection forms.
If approved, we will mail the user ID and password for the vessel account to the vessel owner. The vessel owner can then login to their online account through the IFQ account login page.
Software Requirements for Vessel Accounts
The vessel account is a web-based system. Participants must have access to a computer with internet access. The computer must have internet browser software installed (e.g. Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla FIrefox, etc.), as well as the Adobe Flash Player software version 9.0 or greater.
