Are you really cut out for direct marketing your fish? If so, what permits do you need, and how can you qualify? This publication teaches direct market fishermen about the regulatory and permitting requirements they must follow, to lawfully sell catch from their vessels. Water supply, sanitation, and chilling requirements have to be adhered to. All the legal aspects, as well as offloading, shipping, and records and reporting business hurdles, are clearly described. Author Izetta Chambers is Marine Advisory agent in Dillingham, Alaska, as well as a direct market fisherman. She is an assistant professor of fisheries at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and has a degree in law.
