Emailing approved open access vessel and dealer permits

Effective immediately and upon request, the NOAA Fisheries’ Southeast Region Permit Office will email permit holders approved open access vessel or dealer permit(s).

The announcement was made July 15, 2020 in Fisheries Bulletin FB20-045.

Permit holders who have open access vessel or dealer permit(s) emailed to them should keep a copy of Fishery Bulletin FB20-045 on their vessel or at the dealer facility.

Permit holders who currently have an application in the Southeast Region Permit Office and who would like an approved open access vessel or dealer permit(s) emailed can complete the email authorization form at fisheries.noaa.gov/region/southeast, under Fisheries Bulletin.

Starting in August, the permit office will include the email authorization form in the permit renewal reminder packages sent out each month.

The authorization form should be included in the permit application submitted online or on paper.

Applicants can also call the Permit Office at 877-376-4877 and request the email authorization form once an application has been received.

Unless the permit office receives the email authorization form, the agency will continue to print and mail the permit(s) from the Southeast Region Permit Office.

The Southeast Region Permit Office is only emailing open access permits. The agency will continue to print and mail approved limited access permit(s) from the permit office.

For further information, contact the Southeast Region Permit Office by telephone at 877-376-4877, weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., excluding federal holidays and leave a message.
