ODFW to issue two brine shrimp permits – Apply by April 25

April 20, 2018

SALEM, Ore. — ODFW will award two brine shrimp permits May 1 at ODFW headquarters in Salem. 

“The commercial brine shrimp fishery in Oregon is limited to three permits,” said Linda Lytle, license service manager for ODFW. “If the number of permits falls below three we hold a lottery to bring the number back up to three. Currently there are two brine shrimp permits available.” (Brine shrimp permits are only valid in Lake Abert located approximately 36 miles north of Lakeview, Ore.)

Only one application per individual will be accepted. Applications must be received in the Salem office or postmarked no later than April 25, 2018.

To renew a permit for the next year, the holder must meet minimum landing requirements of 5,000 pounds. If there are no landings, the permit reverts to the state.

For more information on applying for a permit please contact ODFW’s licensing services, 4034 Fairview Industrial Dr. SE., Salem, OR 97302 or call (503) 947-6101.
