House OK's short-term licenses

Posted: Thursday, April 28, 2005

The state House of Representatives approved a bill Wednesday allowing a $30 short-term commercial fishing crewmember license.

The seven-day license now costs $60 for residents and $180 for nonresidents. The proposal by Rep. Carl Moses, D-Unalaska, aims to attract tourists and allow them an affordable way to experience life on a real commercial fishing vessel.

It also allows the state Department of Fish and Game to collect an additional $3 on crewmember fishing licenses issued in 2005.

The bill passed 37-1, and needs a final procedural vote before moving to the Senate.
