Restricted Access Management Program

The Restricted Access Management (RAM) Program supports Alaska Region efforts to ensure sustainable fisheries and promote fishing communities by issuing Federal fishing permits and other fishery authorizations to fishery participants; implementing fishery management programs, including requirements related to the determination of program eligibility and transfer of catch histories; implementing transferable allocation programs; issuing subsistence and charter permits; and providing advice and notifications to fishermen and the public on the interpretation of Federal fishing regulations.
