Have you recently expanded your fishing ventures to new waters or species and are concerned about compliance with the powers that be? Or, are you just starting out with Commercial Fishing and want to make sure that you have everything in place for you to begin your journey? At the Commercial Fishing Permits Center, we’re dedicated to assisting diverse commercial fishing professionals in securing the permits, licenses, and paperwork they require. Among the most prevalent needs we address: American vessel documentation with the USCG.
The USCG Documentation Imperative for Commercial Fishing
If you’re planning to engage in commercial fishing activities within the navigable waters of the United States or the Exclusive Economic Zone, and your vessel boasts a volume of at least five net tons, then USCG documentation for your vessel is necessary. This isn’t something optional—it’s a must-have. Accessing this documentation, fortunately, is easy. In fact, you can find it right on our homepage.
Where to Easily Acquire This Documentation
Simple: right here. At the Commercial Fishing Permits Center, our website provides everything you need to send in your application to get your vessel duly documented with the Coast Guard. Simply click on the form, complete the sections as indicated, and send it to us—voilà, you’re all set. Notably, you can submit this application through our platform to obtain documentation for one year, and you also have the option to renew for multiple years. Each Certificate of Documentation holds a one-year validity, but by using our platform, you can renew it for up to five years in one go.

The answer is simple: We streamline the process of applying for this form. Our website is optimized for mobile devices, enabling you to complete the form from virtually anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection.

Comprehensive Forms for Fishing Across the Nation
While most of our clients require USCG documentation as a fundamental step before launching their commercial fishing endeavors, it’s seldom the sole form they require through our platform. Whether you’re casting your nets in the Gulf of Mexico, along the New England coast, amidst the waters of Alaska, American Samoa, California, or any other American fishing grounds, you can find the permits and licenses right here.
In fact, if it’s been a minute since you came to our site, you’ll note that we added several state forms as well. Now, in addition to the regional forms, you can find necessary forms for Delaware, California, Alaska, Hawaii, and other states such as New York, New Jersey, Alabama, and elsewhere.
