MMAP Letter and Certificate for American Samoa Longline and HSFCA Permitted Vessels

September 28, 2023

Marine Mammal Authorization Program High Seas Fishing Compliant Act or American Samoa Longline permit holder letter certificate.

The Pacific Islands Regional Office automatically issues the MMAP Certificate to each vessel registered to an American Samoa longline permit and/or a High Seas Fishing Compliance Act (HFSCA) permit because these fisheries are classified as a Category II fishery under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. A valid MMAP Certificate must be on-board the vessel when fishing.
