Subtidal Farm Site Harvest Requirements
An aquatic farm operation permit holder with approval to harvest wild stock must keep track of the total wild stock geoduck harvest from each site on the Geoduck Wild stock Harvest Logbook (PDF 18 kB). This logbook must be submitted to ADF&G annually with the aquatic farm annual report.
An aquatic farm operation permit holder with approval to harvest wild stock must complete an ADF&G Miscellaneous Shellfish Ticket at landing with an imprint of the interim use permit card issued by CFEC.
The following information must be on the Miscellaneous Shellfish Ticket:
- an imprint of the current Aquatic Farm Interim-Use Permit card that was issued for the specific aquatic farm site where the wild stock geoduck clams were harvested
- the ADF&G aquatic farm operation permit number
- statistical area where the farm site is located
- the effort (e.g. if 2 divers x 300 min = 600 min of effort)
- the number of animals
- signature of the permit holder.
The permit holder must ensure that the buyer or processor completes the same fish ticket to include:
- an imprint of the buyer code or processor code plate
- the number of pounds
- the delivery code
- the price per pound
- the total amount paid to permit holder
- signature of the buyer or processor.
An aquatic farm operation permit holder must provide a legible copy of this completed fish ticket to the ADF&G Aquatic Farming and ensure that the buyer or processor sends a copy of the completed fish ticket to the ADF&G office in the area where the geoducks are landed as they traditionally do. Our recommendation is to send the goldenrod copy to the ADF&G Aquatic Farming Coordinator, the yellow copy to the nearest ADF&G local office, and the pink copy goes to you, the permit holder.
