Fish Transport Permit

Fish transport permits (FTPs) are generally issued for projects involving fish propagation. They are required of anyone who wants to transport, possess, export from the state and release, or release into the waters of Alaska, any live fish or their eggs (see Overview definition). If such organisms are to be exported out of state but never released again, a fish resource permit (not a fish transport permit) may be all that is required.

Depending on the species involved, applicants wishing to export live fish from Alaska may be required to attach to their FTP application a permit-to-import from officials of the receiving state or country. In all cases, the project must already have been discussed or approved in another document or permit (e.g, a fish resource or private nonprofit hatchery permit) before a Fish Transport Permit application will be processed. The review takes approximately 45 days; this may include the review period for any associated fish incubation permit.
