Shirley, S. and B. Muse. 1992. "The Feasibility of Limited Entry and Permit Exchange For The Guided Sport Fishery". A report to Senator Lloyd Jones. CFEC Report Number 92-7. Alaska Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission.


This report summarizes the legal and practical problems of limiting the guided sport industry using the existing limited entry program, while allowing for further expansion through the purchase of salmon troll permits. Many statutory changes would be required and some constitutional issues might be involved. The report notes some practical problems associated with exchanging of permits among limited fisheries as a solution to Chinook allocation problems. This report was requested by Senator Lloyd Jones.
