Replace a Federal Commercial Fishing Permit

replace a federal commercial fishing permit

Has it become time to replace a federal commercial fishing permit for Amendment 80, but you aren’t sure where to get started? As an owner of an Amendment 80 permit, do you want to replace your vessel and still be in compliance?  Each commercial fishing permit for your business, no matter how important, can seem like a difficult fight. Indeed, that’s one of the major reasons we started the Commercial Fishing Permits Center: to make the process easier for commercial fishing professionals. That’s true whether they’re renewing their Amendment 80 permit or anything else. 

Replace a Federal Commercial Fishing Permit

For starters, your new vessel can’t be too big. To be eligible, your replacement vessel cannot exceed 295 feet in length overall. If you’re unsure, it’s worth it to measure. Beyond that, it has to have been built in the United States. That’s true if it was rebuilt, too. In fact, if it was ever rebuilt, period, then it has to have been rebuilt in the United States as well. You have to be able to demonstrate that you own the vessel, too. How can you do that? By having the Certificate of Documentation or a USCG Abstract of Title. We can help with that, too, at our site. 

What Amendment 80 Covers 

Perhaps you stumbled onto this blog because you were looking for more information on Amendment 80 and whether or not it was worth your time. To simplify things, Amendment 80 can put you in a position to fish for more species in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Island areas. For example, Amendment 80 has modified the crab and halibut prohibited species catch limits. Additionally, it greatly affects fishing for groundfish species in the area, too. Rock sole, Yellowfin sole, Flathead sole, Aleutian Islands Pacific Ocean perch, and more – if you’re fishing those in the area, you at least have to check on whether or not you need to be in compliance with Amendment 80. 

A Simpler Process for Commercial Fishing Pros 

It stands to reason that you didn’t get into fishing in Alaskan waters for the sheer honor of filling out paperwork. This documentation can be a chore at best. Those are just some of the reasons that we do everything in our power to make filling out these forms a better fit for your schedule. For example, as we made our site mobile-optimized, you can fill out these forms from anywhere with an internet connection – even the water.
