Commercial Fish License
Does it require an explanation? You need a license if you want to legally operate a fish business in Oregon.
This permit may allow you to:
- Transfer permit to a different vessel and new permit holder.
- Transfer permit to different vessel under same ownership as current vessel.
- Transfer permit and vessel to new owner (Ownership Change).
Buyer’s License Application
This is a fish buyer application. Applicants must have a wholesale fish dealer license. The fish buyer license is not transferable.
Wholesale License Application
This application is used to apply for wholesale fish dealers, shellfish canner or fish canner.
Limited Fish Sellers Application
The Limited Fish Seller Permit allows a properly licensed fisher to sell all species of commercially caught food fish and shellfish. The fish and shellfish must be: 1) Caught by the vessel owned or operated by the fisher, 2) Sold by the fisher off the vessel (in the water), and 3) Sold to the ultimate consumer (By definition, a restaurant is also considered an ultimate consumer). This application can be used for first time applications or renewals.
Tuna Landing License
This one is a special license that allows a boat to commercially land tuna only. There are two types of license. One that does not require a vessel to have an Oregon commercial boat license or crew licenses. And a Commercially Licensed Vessel Tuna Landing License, for those boats with a state commercial license landing only.
