MMAP Letter and Certificate for Hawaii Longline Vessels (2019)

December 13, 2018

The Pacific Islands Regional Office automatically issues the MMAP Certificate to each vessel registered to a Hawaii 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.
