Commercial Fish Transporters

Commercial Fish transporters 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 complete all available information on the fish ticket 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.
