Amend Electronic Reports

Step Description
1 Click the ER tab to begin.
Note: You must be signed into FishServe and have ER authorisation to do this.
You need to be the original completer or an ER Manager or Admin to amend the report.

2 The Trip Summary screen will display.
Find the trip with the report you need to amend.
You can use the Filters to narrow your search.
Note: You can also use the Submissions screen to find specific reports.
For more information, refer to the View Reports guide.

3 Once you've found the correct trip, click on the row to open it.
This displays all the events that make up the trip.
Click Amend next to the report.

4 The Amendment screen will display.
The title will vary based on the report you are amending (e.g. Bottom Trawl Amendment, Handlining Amendment).
Make the required changes then scroll down.

A banner at the top of the page indicates if the report has any errors.

Errors are highlighted in orange within the report
Please see our ER Errors Quick Guide for more information about ER errors.

5 You can amend the start and end positions for the report, if necessary.
Please note: FishServe accepts two formats for coordinates:
  • Decimal Degrees (e.g. -44.23456°)
  • Degrees/Minutes (e.g. 44°17.0735’ S)
Both the above examples point to the same location, despite the different numbers.
This means you can’t swap between formats using the same numbers, as this will result in different locations.
For example, entering -44.23456° as 44°23.456’ S would result in two different locations.
Please refer to our Guide to Entering Manual Locations for more information.

6 You can also amend your estimated catch.

Click the X over to the right-hand side to delete stock lines.

Click the Add species to add more stock lines.

7 Once you've amended the required information, scroll down, and provide a reason for your amendment.

8 Click Submit to complete amending your report.
