Are you thinking about expanding your commercial fishing business into the Pacific Island regions? Does it feel like it’s all too much work to find the Commercial Fishing Permits that you need? We’ve got your back. Over the years, we’ve supported fishing professionals worldwide, enabling them to navigate the “regulatory seas” (so to speak) while they pursue their catch in full compliance with governing authorities. The Pacific Island Region harbors a distinctive set of regulations and guidelines, all of which can be covered by our forms.
Western Pacific Island Federal Commercial Fishing: Diverse Species and Prospects
Acknowledging that fishing ventures in the Pacific often entails targeting a variety of species, we do everything we can to offer a comprehensive array of permits tailored to your needs. Here, you will discover the necessary permits to pursue Pelagic Squid, Deepwater Shrimp, Lobsters, Precious Corals, as well as a General Longline permit within the waters of the Pacific.
Securing Permits for Harvesting HMS in Specific High Seas Zones
If you want to fish for highly migratory species (HMS) within the purview of the WCPFC (Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission) Convention Area, then a valid Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission Area Endorsement is necessary. To explain, the “WCPFC Convention Area” encompasses “all Pacific Ocean waters delineated to the south and east by an imaginary line extending due south from the southern coast of Australia, tracing the 141st meridian of east longitude until it intersects the 55th parallel of south latitude.” In possession of a bona fide High Seas Fishing Compliance Act Permit, you can fish for what you want how you want.
Venturing Beyond the Western Pacific Islands
The “Western Pacific Island Region,” as teeming as it is with opportunity, isn’t the only region with plenty of fish. To that end, we offer the “Foreign EEZ” form. This commercial fishing permit empowers you to harvest highly migratory species within the WCPFC Convention Area, even in regions under the jurisdiction of countries other than the United States. This flexibility allows you to cast your nets far and wide, cultivating profits from virtually anywhere.
