Are you thinking of expanding commercial fishing ventures into the enchanting Caribbean seas? Or perhaps you’re already at the helm of a well-established Caribbean Commercial Fishing operation and want to streamline the permit application process? Here at the Commercial Fishing Permits Center, we understand how arduous the permit process can be as well as how important your time is. Thus, we do everything in our power to craft a platform that simplifies every facet of the commercial fishing permit procedure.
Caribbean’s Seasonal Fishing Patterns
In the sprawling expanse of the Caribbean, abundant fishing opportunities beckon. However, one must remain vigilant about seasonal closures, irrespective of their permit portfolio. As of the latest update, you can still cast your nets for Red, Black, Yellowfin, Yellowedge, and Tiger grouper until the first of February.
That said, there are some fish that, if you’re going to fish for them in the Caribbean, now is the time, at least in terms of 2023. For example, the Black snapper, Silk snapper, Vermilion snapper, and Blackfin snapper are still in season until October 1st. Once it’s October, you can’t fish for those species again until New Year’s Eve (December 31st). Red hind grouper you can fish for until December 1st.
Even examples of these harvest closures shows just how much fishing opportunity there is in Caribbean waters.
Our Aid for Caribbean Commercial Fishing Permits
First and foremost, we facilitate the acquisition of an HMS Caribbean Commercial Small Boat Commercial Fishing Permit. This permit not only grants access to Caribbean waters but also unlocks the promising waters of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. A crucial point to note: holding this permit precludes simultaneous possession of permits for swordfish, smoothhound, tuna long line, or Atlantic shark. Alongside this application, you’ll need to apply for fishing in the Vessel EEZ. Lastly, your vessel should measure less than 45 feet in length, accompanied by valid state registration or Coast Guard documentation. USCG documentation can be obtained through our site.
Permits for Your Commercial Fishing Regions
We’re committed to extending commercial fishing permits to as many industry professionals as possible. This entails offering forms that are indispensable for a majority of commercial fishing enthusiasts while also catering to those who require specialized permits that may not be easy to acquire elsewhere. Take, for instance, the “Colombian Treaty Water Commercial Fishing Permit (Open Access),” enabling you to tap into the wealth of commercial fishing opportunities in Roncador, Serrana, and Quita Sueno.

The Caribbean, while brimming with boundless commercial fishing potential, is not the sole location of fishing operations within the United States. At the Commercial Fishing Permits Center, our services span far beyond the Caribbean, reaching into Alaska, New England, the West Coast, and even the Pacific Islands.
