NMFS Permit Application for Atlantic Tunas Made Easier

NMFS Permit Application

Have you been trying to find permits to fish for Atlantic Tunas online, but it feels like the process is more challenging than it should be? Did you find a permit, schedule out time to complete it, only to find that when you did it felt like you couldn’t just get through the thing? That’s perfectly understandable. Many of our workers come from commercial fishing backgrounds, and no one got into that industry to send in forms. That’s why, at our site, we make it easier than ever to fill out the NMFS permit application for tunas (as well as other fish) that much simpler. 

Who Needs a Permit for Tunas

The authorities require anyone to obtain federal permits if they fish for, purchase, sell, or import what are called “Atlantic Highly Migratory Species.” These “HMS” include swordfish, sharks, billfish, and of course, tunas. If you’re wondering “do I need an Atlantic HMS vessel permit,” ask yourself: “does my vessel fish for or incidentally take and retain Atlantic HMS?” if the answer is yes, get the permit. One thing to keep in mind about these permits, though: they aren’t attached to the permit holder. Rather, they’re attached to the vessel. They must be updated annually, too. 

What We Offer at Our Site

At our site, as of this writing, we offer the “Atlantic Tuna Longline Commercial Fishing Permit (Limited Access). Specifically, we offer applications to transfer one of these permits if you already have one or to renew them. As with all of our other forms, you can do this from any device, so long as it’s connected to the internet. You never have to worry about sitting down at your computer and losing hours to filling out these forms again. 

Opportunity in Tuna

There are many lucrative fish in the sea that can bring you big profits. And then, there’s tuna. There are so many different species of tuna in the Atlantic and, as of this writing, they are all at acceptable levels of fishing. That said, you need to know the specific rules and regulations for whichever tuna it is that you’re fishing. For example, many of them, (under the 2006 Consolidated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan), have time/area closures, gear restrictions, a minimum size limit, and so much more. If you have any questions about these tuna, we’ll be more than happy to answer them. 

Beyond an NMFS Permit Application

Beyond just answering your questions, our trained, experienced staff will be more than happy to walk you through each of these forms, step by step if need be. Tuna can be incredibly lucrative, and there’s plenty of it in the Atlantic. Yet, there’s also opportunity all across America, too. You’ll be able to find all of the forms you need at our site to fish for what you want to fish for in the south, off of the West Coast, even in the Pacific Islands or Alaska.
