Applying for Aquatic Stock Acquisition and Transport Permit

An Aquatic Stock Acquisition and Transport Permit is required to collect wildstock outside of an aquatic farm site, for the purposes of providing broodstock or wild seed stock to an aquatic farm or hatchery within the State of Alaska. The department must issue a Stock Acquisition and Transport Permit before acquisition and transport occurs. The permit holder whose site the broodstock or wild seed stock is being transported to is responsible for applying for this type of permit. ADF&G requires an acquisition and transport permit holder or permit holder’s authorized agent to have, in their physical possession, a copy of the approved Aquatic Stock Acquisition and Transport Permit before collection and transport may take place.

To request approval to acquire wild stock, for the purpose of providing broodstock or seedstock to an aquatic farm or hatchery, use the Aquatic Stock Acquisition and Transport Permit application and submit it to the department at least 30 days before the proposed acquisition.
