Updated combined permit coming soon

Ecology is updating and combining this permit with two others (the Aquatic Invasive Species Management and the Invasive Moth Control) into one new Aquatic & Invasive Species Control general permit.

The draft permit documents will be available for review and comment between Dec. 21, 2022 and Feb. 6, 2023.

Ecology will review any comments and revise the draft documents, then decide about issuing the new permit in March 2023.

For more details, please visit our new Aquatic & Invasive Species Control general permit webpage. Note: Please bookmark the webpage, as this fisheries resource management permit webpage will eventually go away.

We issue the Fisheries Resource Management Permit to Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The permit allows the agency to restore habitat, native species, and recreational fisheries in Washington waters.
