Western Pacific Crustaceans Permit for Lobster or Deepwater Shrimp
A permit is required by the owner of a U.S. fishing vessel used to fish for lobster or deepwater shrimp in the EEZ around American Samoa, Guam, Hawaii, Northern Mariana Islands, and the Pacific Remote Islands Areas.
The permit expires 1 year after the date of issuance. Permit holders must submit a logbook to NOAA Fisheries within 72 hours of landing (except when fishing in the Pacific Remote Island Areas—those reports are due within 30 days). For more information see the compliance guide and the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 50, Part 665.
