Permits & State Fisheries

August 17, 2023

Permit activity remains pretty slow, as it usually is this time of year. Bristol Bay permits are moving at $140,000 this week. Our lowest asking price is currently $140,000 and our highest offer is $125,000. In the past, sales start to pick up again in late September and October, so stay tuned!
