Tuna Commercial Fishing License and Permit on the West Coast
Fishing for tuna on the west coast? Then it may behoove you to get in compliance with the Tuna Treaty Permit. This 1981 agreement between Canada and the US makes it possible for US vessels to fish for albacore tuna in Canadian waters seaward of up to 12 miles from shore (and, consequently, for Canadian vessels to do the same in American waters). This form allows you to partake in this. However, be advised: even if you get the form, you’re only able to fish in Canada’s EEZ from June 15th through Halloween.
Atlantic Tuna Longline Commercial Fishing Permit (Limited Access)
We know that many of our clients that fish in the Southeast area fish for multiple species. Sure, there’s plenty of money in tuna, but there’s also so much opportunity in other species as well. So, it stands to reason that wouldn’t want to (nor should you have to) choose. To that end, we offer forms like the “Atlantic Tuna Longline Commercial Fishing Permit (Limited Access).” This form allows you to fish for many different kinds of tuna in many different areas. While you can’t hold this permit with other Atlantic Tuna permits, you can hold this permit with the shark and swordfish permit, too.
Tuna You Can Fish
In the above section, when we said “you can fish for many different kinds of tuna in many different areas” that was not an exaggeration. The Atlantic Tuna Longline Commercial fishing Permit (Limited Access) makes it possible for you to fish tuna in the Gulf of Mexico, the waters of New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and the South Atlantic, too. In those waters, you can fish for Atlantic Yellowfin Tuna, Western Atlantic Bluefin Tuna, Atlantic Skipjack Tuna, Atlantic Bigeye Tuna, and others.
