Are you searching for NMFS permits that make it easier to do what you want to do with the fish that you catch? Have you felt like you want to give back to the community in a way that really matters? Here at the Commercial Fishing Permits Center, we love working with commercial fishing professionals for many reasons. Not the least of those reasons is that fishing pros understand how important it is to help local communities, to give back to those that need it. We have permits that make it easier to do exactly that (as well as an easier way to acquire those permits and many others).
NMFS Permits for the Authorized Distributor Prohibited Species Program
With this particular permit, tax-exempt organizations will be able to distribute halibut and/or salmon to food bank networks, food bank distributors, and hunger relief agencies. Specifically, the salmon and/or halibut used here is delivered by catcher’s vessels using trawl gear to shoreside processors. If you’re seeking to become an authorized distributor, you have to provide the powers that be (the Alaska Region’s Regional Administrator) with information such as proof of your tax-exempt status, documentation of support from cold storage, and transportation facilities as well as others.
What This Program Covers
Specifically, this is for Chinook Salmon and Pacific Halibut. In regards to the former, strict regulations balance people’s needs against that of other marine life, and some Chinook Salmon stocks are below target population levels while others are above. The good news, in Alaska at least, is that, while some stocks are in decline, none are listed under the Endangered Species Act (as of this writing). In terms of Pacific Halibut, they are sustainably managed and responsibly harvested.
