Fish Transporters are permitted in Salmon, Herring, and Pacific Cod fisheries only (see A.S. 16.05.671). Fish Transporters are agents of the fisherman responsible for transporting fish from a fisherman's possession to the point of sale. Fish Transporters are required to ensure that all information available is recorded on the fish ticket at the point of transfer and retain the fish ticket until it can be completed by the buyer. If you would like to tender other fishery resources, the vessel tendering the fish must act as an agent of the buyer and should be licensed as a Tender/Packer with the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission. Please see their website at: http://www.cfec.state.ak.us/ or call (907) 789-6160. A transporter does not have to be licensed in the fishery that they will be transporting and can transport fish from multiple fisherman at the same time. A transporter can be a licensed commercial fisherman and a transporter. A transporter cannot buy, process, or export fish. Transporters of groundfish should be aware that federal regulations may apply. Call NOAA Fisheries Enforcement at (907) 586-7225 for more information.
