Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge is offering three annual commercial fishing site permits for set net or beach seine activities in parts of the Viekoda, Uganik and Uyak Bay areas of Kodiak Island. Permits will be valid for one season of use from May 15 – September 15, and allow for temporary facilities such as tent platforms and other camp structures that must be removed at the end of the season.

Applicants are required to obtain the appropriate State of Alaska permits for commercial fishing activities and must provide evidence of these permits in their application. Complete applications must be received by April 30, 2014. If the Refuge receives more than three applications, successful applicants will be selected by lottery.
