TESA is pleased to announce the award of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Office of Sustainable Fisheries (OSF) eDealer task order. The electronic Atlantic HMS dealer reporting system (eDealer) allows NMFS to monitor HMS landings electronically and collect additional information from dealers for management purposes. The data collected is then used to aid in analyses for fishery management actions. On the preceding contract, ERT worked to modernize the program and improve its functionality. On this follow-on contract, TESA will continue this work, maintaining the continuation of operations while making additional improvements that adhere to software coding and security conventions/standards.
The role of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Highly Migratory Species Management Division is to manage highly migratory species (HMS) fisheries in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea.
