Iverson, K. and E. Dinneford. 1995. "Changes in the Distribution of Alaska's Commercial Fisheries Entry Permits, 1975 to 1994." CFEC Rpt. 95-12N


This report provides detailed information on changes in the distribution of permanent permits in Alaska's limited fisheries for the 1975 to 1994 time period. It covers the 46 limited fisheries and 50 permit types where permanent permits had been issued by the end of 1994.

The report provides both statewide and fishery-specific data on transfer incidence, the initial geographic distribution of permit holders, changes due to transfers, changes due to migration, and the year-end 1994 geographic distribution of permit holders.

The report also includes extensive information on the age distribution of permit holders, age differences between transferors and transfer recipients, the incidence of intra-family and business partner transfers, transfer acquisition methods, and transfer financing methods. The information contained in the report is derived from the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission's (CFEC) permit and transfer survey files.
