Department of Fish and Game; Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission
The Alaska Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission (CFEC) helps to conserve and maintain the economic health of Alaska’s commercial fisheries by limiting the number of participating fishers. The Commission issues permits and vessel licenses to qualified individuals in both limited and unlimited fisheries, and provides due process hearings and appeal processes for disputes related to limitations on fishery participation.
