Alaskan Commercial Fishing Permits for Pollock 

In October of 1998, the American Fisheries Act was signed into law. The idea behind this was quite simple: under the Anti-reflagging Act, U.S. ownership standards had been exploited, they had gotten “loose,” so to speak. So, the authorities wanted to provide the pollock fleet of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands the opportunity to conduct their fishery in a more rational manner. So, this act made it possible to form a cooperative, it set limits on the participation of AFA vessels in other fisheries, while determining who is and who isn’t an eligible processor and vessel. If you have any questions about this, our staff will be more than happy to answer them. 

Plenty of Opportunity in Pollock 

When it comes to bycatch, there’s just about nothing like the Alaska pollock fishery (literally). As of this writing, that fisher is one of the cleanest in terms of incidental catch of other species, coming in at less than one percent. That’s just one of the many, many reasons to get Pollock Alaska Commercial Fishing Permits. They’re above target population levels in Alaska, while the fishing status is at recommended levels, too. It really does look like, due to science-based management and other factors, they’re going to be sustainable for a long time to come.
