MMAP Letter and Certificate for Hawaiʻi Longline Vessels

September 28, 2023

Hawaiʻi Longline Limited Entry Marine Mammal Authorization Program Letter and Marine Mammal Authorization Program

The Pacific Islands Regional Office automatically issues the MMAP Certificate to each vessel registered to a Hawaiʻi longline permit because the deep-set fishery is classified as a Category I fishery and the shallow-set fishery is a Category II fishery under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. A valid MMAP Certificate must be on-board the vessel when fishing.
