Alaska Commercial Fishing Permits
There are big Pacific salmon and then there are Chinook salmon. These are the absolute, on average, biggest of Pacific salmon. For the most part, their weight exceeds thirty pounds and they measure more than three feet in length. Chinook salmon tend to make their way into the ocean, but they don’t all do it one year. “Ocean-type Chinook salmon” do so in their first year, but “Stream-types” spend an entire year in freshwater before heading out to the ocean. Regardless of when they get there, you’ll be able to fish them with the right permit.
Why You Need This Permit
The Alaskan fishing authorities had been looking for a way to minimize chum salmon and Chinook bycatch in the Bering Sea pollock fisher as much as possible. However, they also wanted to make sure that it was possible to have a full harvest of pollock total allowable catch, all while staying within the limits of prohibited species catch. These permits allow you to legally fish for Chinook salmon in Alaska without worry.
