    Open to residents only.

    Shrimp in PWS is open to sport, subsistence, and personal use fishing. All the regulations are the same for each fishery, except only residents can fish under personal use and subsistence regulations. In addition, there are some waters that are not open to subsistence fishing. But because all three of these fisheries have the same seasons and limits, everyone can participate as long as they have a permit and a valid sport fishing license.

    Personal Use Shrimp states "Personal use fisheries are open to Alaska residents only".This includes finfish and shellfish. It is in the attachment that AKKONA posted and in other sections of ADFG regs.http://www.sf.adfg.state.ak.us/Stati...Eshellfish.pdf

    It is my understanding that only the North Gulf Coast is Personal Use only.
    PWS also allows sportfishing for shrimp and this would include anyone resident or not who posses a valid 2010 sportfishing license and a shrimp harvest permit.
    Of course with the cost of pots at @ $70 each,Buoys @ $35+ and line at @ $40-$60 per 600' it would be costly. Unless you can find someone to rent or loan you some gear. Not sure how to mark a buoy for a rental boat?

    I stand corrected. "Sorry" to some, and "Thank You" to others!

    I had nonres friends shrimp with me last year twice off of a rental out of Whittier last summer. F&G gave them permits. This year I think that you only need to put your phone number on the bouy - not the boat number.

    I used a piece of duct tape with the boat number on it - used a sharpie to mark in after I rented the boat.

    If you are renting the boat from Whittier Boat Rentals, they have all the shrimping gear you'll need for rent as well. They have just about everything gear-wise that you'd need, which makes flying to and from your home nice and easy. I had a chance to chat with them a bit at the show this last weekend and they seem like a nice group. Prices can tend to be a bit high, but when you factor in the convenience of it all, it can't be beat!

    You still need the name, address, and boat number. You no longer need to put down the permit number, but will need a valid phone number in its place.

    Default You do not need a phone number

    it is voluntary only
    They ask that you do but do not require it.

    Each keg or buoy must have the name of the fisher (first initial, last name), the address, the shrimp permit number (for North Gulf Coast), and the name or AK number of the boat used to fish the pots.

    I will read through the regs when I get my permit - recommended for everyone to do that as a minium.
