IPHC Permitting

Since its inception, the International Pacific Halibut Commission has granted a number of permits to other institutions to capture or use Pacific halibut for any purpose not included in the IPHC Fishery Regulations. An IPHC Permit is required to conduct research or tagging activities by entities other than the IPHC.

An IPHC Permit may be requested via our Online Form. All permit requests must be submitted online. Previously issued permits can be found on our Cooperation with Other Organisations page.
