Gulf of Mexico Federal Commercial Fishing

Are you looking into fishing for swordfish in the Gulf of Mexico area? Have you started the commercial fishing permit application process but find it far more difficult than it should be? That’s just one of the reasons we started our site. We wanted to help commercial fishing professionals like yourself to spend more time helping your business and less time filling out forms. So, to that end, we created a site that would have all of the forms you could conceivably need, in an easier-to-use form. To that end, we have many different kinds of Gulf of Mexico federal commercial fishing permits for swordfish. 

The Right Gulf of Mexico Federal Commercial Fishing Permits for Swordfish 

At our site, we offer a better way to complete the “Swordfish Directed Commercial Fishing Permit,” the “Swordfish Handgear Commercial Fishing Permit” and the “Swordfish Incidental Commercial Fishing Permit,” respectively. All are for the Gulf of Mexico region and all are labeled “(Limited Access).” something to keep in mind: you can choose one. Each of them has many different rules and regulations attached to them, but specifically you “cannot have another swordfish permit that’s been issued by the Southeast Region Office.” As with all of our forms, if you have any questions, we encourage you to reach out to our staff. 

North Atlantic Swordfish: An Abundance of Opportunity 

It makes sense why there are so many rules and regulations around fishing for North Atlantic Swordfish – they’re great to fish. There are so many opportunities in their fishing right now, and it seems like that’s going to hold for a long time to come, fortunately. As of this writing, their fishing status is at a recommended level and their population-level is above the target, and the gear you use to fish for them has no impact on the habitat. There are annual catch limits, minimum size requirements, lending restrictions, and the like, but there’s just so much opportunity in swordfish it’s worth it.
