Reminder: Commercial Herring Permit Survey


Commercial Herring Vessel near Richmond Bridge

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (Department) is currently developing a Fishery Management Plan (FMP) for the state-managed Pacific herring fishery. To further this effort, the Department and FMP Project Management Consultant have developed a survey to solicit feedback on potential permitting and regulatory changes.

The previously mailed survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Please return your completed survey by June 30, 2017 to ensure that your input is considered for permitting and regulatory changes.

If you have any questions or would like to request another survey, please contact Ryan Bartling, Environmental Scientist, at or at (707) 576-2877.
