Exempted Fishing Permits in Alaska

An exempted fishing permit (EFP) is a permit issued by the Alaska Region to allow fishing activities that would otherwise be prohibited under federal regulations. These permits are issued for limited experimental purposes to support projects that could benefit fisheries and the environment. Examples of past projects supported by EFPs include the development of new gear types for an underutilized fishery and development of devices that reduce prohibited species bycatch.
