Catcher/Seller Permits

PRINT A COPY: Catcher-Seller Permit Application Form (PDF 185 kB)

Catcher/Seller permits are for fisherman who wish to sell only their own catch, unprocessed (in the round), to members of the public, grocery stores or restaurants, or ADEC Waivered Buyers. In most cases sales occur directly from the vessel at the dock. If you do not sell from the dock you should contact the Department of Environmental Conservation at (907) 269-7501 to obtain the proper permits. You do not need a Catcher/Seller permit if you only sell to licensed processors. The fisherman must have at least one permit from the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission for the current year in order to receive a Catcher/Seller permit. The Catcher/Seller is responsible for completing the fish ticket on the date of the landing for the entire catch (not for each sale) and must submit the fish ticket within 7 days to the nearest ADF&G office. For further details, or if you have questions please contact the Seafood Industry Coordinator at 907-465-6131 or
