08-Apr-14: Fourth Year of AccessQ™ Recreational Halibut Quota Leasing Service. IQMI is once again offering interested recreational stakeholders secure, convenient access to quota for the 2014 Halibut Experimental Recreational Fishery. We continue to work with the commercial halibut sector to create virtual pool of quota and to make it available to recreational stakeholders by fax, phone and over the Internet. The service will be available beginning in mid-April.

During the past three seasons, all types of recreational fishers - individuals, charter operators and lodges - took advantage of Access Q™ to legally fish for as much halibut as they wanted, when they wanted.

Customers also used Access Q™ to move quota in both directions - from commercial to recreational sector and vice versa - thereby matching what they leased with what they, or their customers, actually caught.

AccessQ™ is the original convenient, secure and completely confidential service that provides recreational anglers with online access to halibut quota.

08-Apr-13: Third Consecutive Year of AccessQ™ Recreational Halibut Quota Leasing Service. IQMI is once again offering interested recreational stakeholders secure, convenient access to quota for the 2013 Halibut Experimental Recreational Fishery. We continue to work with the commercial halibut sector to create virtual 'pool' of quota and to make it available to recreational stakeholders by fax, phone and over the Internet. The service will be available beginning in early April.

During the past two seasons, all types of recreational fishers - individuals, charter operators and lodges - took advantage of AccessQ™ to legally fish for as much halibut as they wanted, when they wanted.

Customers also used AccessQ™ to move quota in both directions - from commercial to recreational sector and vice versa - thereby matching what they leased with what they actually caught.

AccessQ™ is a convenient, secure and completely confidential service that provides recreational anglers with unprecedented access to halibut quota.

22-Mar-12: IQMI Again Provides Access Q™ Recreational Halibut Quota Leasing Service. IQMI is pleased to offer interested recreational stakeholders secure, convenient access to quota for the 2012 Halibut Experimental Recreational Fishery. IQMI has once again worked with commercial halibut fishers to create a virtual 'pool' of quota and to make it available to recreational stakeholders by fax, phone and over the Internet. The service will be available to coincide with the start of the Experimental Recreational Halibut Fishery on April 1.

Recreational fishers moved more than 7,500 pounds of halibut quota through Access Q™ last year.

Those who took advantage of Access Q™ were able to legally fish for as much halibut as they wanted, when they wanted, including fishing well into the months of October and November.

Access Q™ helps move quota in both directions - from commercial to recreational sector and vice versa - thereby helping recreational fishers match what they lease with what they actually catch.

AccessQ™ is a convenient, secure and completely confidential service that provides recreational anglers with unprecedented access to halibut quota.

24-Jan-12: Final Week for Recreational Fishers to Reconcile their 2011 Halibut Quota. IQMI is reminding recreational halibut fishers holding experimental licences that they have through the end of January to reconcile their quota. According to terms of the DFO 2011 Halibut Experimental Recreational Fishery, quota on each experimental licence must be reconciled by January 31, 2012.

Reconciliation means ensuring that catch equals the quota on the licence. If the experimental licence holder has caught in excess of the quota on the licence, they will have to lease quota to cover it. Conversely, if the licence holder has quota in excess of catch, then quota may be leased back to a commercial groundfish licence holder or to another recreational experimental licence applicant who may need quota to reconcile their catch. To support movement of quota onto or off of experimental halibut licences, the AccessQ™ service will remain available through 2012 January 31.

AccessQ™ is a convenient, secure and completely confidential service that provides recreational anglers with unprecedented access to halibut quota.

23-Aug-2011: Access Q™ Service Keeps Recreational Fishers Catching Halibut. Earlier this week DFO announced that the 2011 recreational halibut fishery will close at midnight September 5.

Despite this, recreational fishers, charter operators, lodges and their customers can continue catching and retaining halibut by leasing quota online through IQMI's Access Q™ service. Several thousand pounds of halibut quota have already been leased by recreational fishers through Access Q™ since the service was made available in June, helping customers who did not wish to be limited to the prevailing 'one per day, two in possession' bag limit. With the recreational halibut fishery soon to close, demand for the pool of quota that IQMI has available will likely increase.

Access Q™ is a convenient, secure and completely confidential service that provides recreational anglers with unprecedented access to halibut quota.

15-May-2011: New quota leasing service for recreational stakeholders. IQMI now offers interested recreational stakeholders unprecedented access to halibut quota. Using Access Q™ recreational stakeholders can lease quota by fax, phone and over the Internet. The service has been designed to be convenient, simple to use, secure and confidential.

Access Q™ was introduced in response to a DFO DFO trial program through which recreational stakeholders can obtain experimental licences that will allow them to lease halibut quota - providing access to halibut beyond the limits of the standard recreational fishing licence.

Recreational stakeholders with a valid DFO experimental licence will be able to lease quota through Access Q™ quickly and conveniently by credit card, cheque or bank transfer. Upon completion of each transaction and confirmation of payment, the customer is provided with a Provisional Record of Quota Lease, which they keep with them until they receive a new licence amendment from DFO.

Access Q™ has been built using the IQMI Tx Engine™ as its core - a secure, state-of-the-art, web-based platform that has processed thousands of quota trades and leases since 2007. Credit card payments are processed through the secure PayPal™ platform.

Access Q™ has also been designed with security and confidentiality in mind. Personal information is used to complete each transaction is not shared with third parties beyond that. Also, IQMI is a market-neutral service provider. It does not own quota, nor does it take a position or stake in any quota transaction that it processes.

15-Apr-2010: IQMI Introduces Dashboard Lite aimed at smaller, independent vessels.. IQMI has released a new, basic version of its Dashboard service to help owners of smaller, independent vessels track and manage their quota holdings. Dashboard Lite is priced at only $30 per month per vessel, making it affordable for even the smallest fishing operations.

Dashboard Lite provides dynamic, detailed quota views in both bar chart and table forms. In addition, customers have access to functions such as print-to-PDF and the ability to request quota updates with a few simple mouse clicks.

Dashboard Lite was created, in part, by disabling functions such as Fishing Plans, Trip Logs, and DMP Logs -creating a simple, inexpensive tool to help customers get comfortable with Dashboard technology. Customers can subscribe to a full-function Dashboard as their quota management and operational needs grow. For more information contact Ross Rivers, Director IQMI Dashboard Operations at 778.899.0520 or by e-mail at Ross@iqmi.ca.

-------------------------------

01-Jul-2009: IQMI Introduces Online Dashboard Service. IQMI now offers clients the ability to track their quota holdings on the web, any time, from anywhere.

Because the service is provided over the web, it is as accessible and usable for the independent fisher as it is for larger integrated fishing operations and processors. Virtually anyone who uses IVQ as part of their commercial fishing business can use the IQMI Dashboard to compete more effectively.

The Dashboard is a fully-secure online service that loads Licence Status Report data and presents it to the customer in a dynamic, easy-to-read format.

The dashboard works with any browser, such as Internet Explorer. Clients have no software to buy or download, and virtually no training is required.

With permissions in place, a dashboard can normally be set up, and logon credentials provided to the customer, in just a few hours from receipt of the first LSR. Then, whenever a customer has landed catch or been trading quota, IQMI can refresh their dashboard on demand.

Quota owners control the information. A quota owner can choose to make information available to any third party -a partner, skipper, processor, buyer, customer -in which case, the third party sees only what the quota owner has allowed.

The dashboard also provides features that link quota with fishing operations, including:

  • Trip planning,
  • Online trip logs,
  • Instant quota status updates using DMP Logs,
  • Access to full archives of all quota updates, logs and documents throughout the fishing year.

IQMI sees the Dashboard as a leap forward in quota tracking and management that will continue to evolve and keep its clients ahead of the game.

For more information contact Ross Rivers, Director IQMI Dashboard Operations at 778.899.0520 or by e-mail at Ross@iqmi.ca.

15-Feb-2006: Real-time Listings Available Online. IQMI now provides up-to-date quota listings on its web site.

The new service generates real-time summaries of quota available for trade, transfer and lease, in both HTML and PDF formats, whenever a customer clicks on the IQMI listings page. This service complements the Weekly Listings Service, formerly available by fax or e-mail from IQMI's predecessor, A to Z Quota Registry. IQMI will continue to provide the Weekly Listings Service for customers who request it. Both services are available at no charge.

In the coming months, IQMI plans to further enhance its online quota listings by making them user-searchable.
