Request for "temporary" reallocation of sockeye ITQ holdings guidelines for (F)AT area H and (F)AS area B licensed salmon vessels

This form must be completed if you wish to transfer all or a portion of your Fraser River sockeye holdings to another Area H or Area B vessel.

Instructions:

  1. BOTH vessels must have a valid (F)AT Area H or (F)AS Area B licence and all licence fees must be paid prior to the reallocation of any sockeye holdings
  2. For temporary sockeye reallocations, only one owner of record or authorized signatory of the licence eligibility holder is required to sign unless otherwise stated. If the vessel owner is a company, the Pacific Fishery Licence Unit must have on record a copy of either a confirmation of Signing Authorities or an Amendment to confirmation of Signing Authorities form advising who the signing authorities for the company are
  3. A valid licence amendment must be on record with the Department while the vessel is engaged in fishing

Reallocation guidelines

  1. Upon application, licence eligibility holders will be permitted to make unlimited temporary reallocations of sockeye ITQ
  2. Sockeye ITQ may only be transferred between Area H and/or Area B vessels (e.g. Area H to Area H, Area B to Area B, Area H to Area B and Area B to Area H)
  3. Only uncaught sockeye ITQ may be reallocated. Sufficient quota share (%) must be retained to balance all catch to date
  4. Reallocations of sockeye ITQ for the season will be expressed as a percentage. Sockeye ITQ may also be transferred in pieces and will not affect the quota share
  5. To transfer the entire Area H quota, the percentage transferred is 0.06234% of the TAC (4.8% ÷ 77). The 4.8% is Area H’s allocation of Fraser River sockeye salmon
  6. To transfer the entire Area B quota, the percentage transferred is 0.28869% of the TAC (48.5% ÷ 168). The 48.5% is Area B’s allocation of Fraser River sockeye salmon
  7. Temporary reallocations will be for the current year only
