Are you looking to expand your West Coast Commercial fishing business? Have you been looking for West Coast commercial fishing permits for many different kinds of fish but aren’t sure where to look? We built the Commercial Fishing Permits Center so that commercial fishing professionals like you could spend less time filling out permits and more time out there making money. To that end, we have all of the forms that you might need, all in a format that you can easily fill out from just about anywhere. 

The Sheer Amount of Groundfish 

Over the years, we’ve found that many experienced commercial fishing professionals, even those who have been in or around the business for most of their lives, aren’t fully aware of just how many West Coast groundfish there are. According to the authorities, there are more than 90 different types of groundfish on the West Coast alone. That includes sharks, rockfish, flatfish, skates, and roundfish. These even include plenty of species most know, like Yelloweye Rockfish, Shortspine Thornyhead, Sablefish, Pacific Whiting, Petrale Sole, Lingcod, Pacific Code, Arrowtooth Flounder, and more. Really, we probably should’ve just listed the species off the West Coast that aren’t groundfish.
