Tingley, A., and E. Dinneford. 1996. "Changes in the Distribution of Alaska's Commercial Fisheries Entry Permits, 1975 to 1995." CFEC Rpt. 96-13N


This report provides detailed information on changes in the distribution of permanent permits in Alaska's limited fisheries for the 1975 to 1995 time period. It covers the limited fisheries and permit types where permanent permits have been issued by the end of 1995. 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 1995 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.
