A Community Harvest Permit allows the community or Alaska Native tribe to appoint one or more individuals from its respective community or tribe to harvest subsistence halibut from a single vessel under reduced gear and harvest restrictions. Ceremonial and Educational Permits are available exclusively to Alaska Native tribes. Eligible Alaska Native tribes may appoint only one Ceremonial Permit Coordinator per tribe for Ceremonial Permits or one authorized Instructor per tribe for Educational Permits.

Subsistence fishing for halibut has occurred for many years among the

Permit, special permits require persons fishing under them to also 
possess a Subsistence Halibut Registration Certificate (SHARC) (see OMB

designed to minimize the reporting burden on subsistence halibut 
fishermen while retrieving essential information.
