NEWPORT, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will accept applications for hagfish developmental fisheries permits from April 28 to May 2. Those who apply will be put on a waiting list.

Hagfish permits are currently issued on a temporary, 90-day basis and converted to a full-year permit when landings, accommodation of an observer (if selected) and logbook requirements are met. If those requirements are not met, the hagfish permit may become available.

“We’ve received steady interest in hagfish permits,” said Keith Matteson, ODFW biologist. “The waiting list will be developed according to the date and time of the postmark on the application.”

A completed application must include the Developmental Fisheries Permit Application, an Expanded Hagfish Application and the $75 application fee. Applications must be mailed in and people should request a time stamp on the envelope from the post office. Applications are on the ODFW website,

For more information please contact Keith Matteson at (541) 867-0300 ext. 244 or Gway Kirchner at ext. 267.
