All sport fish guiding businesses and individual sport fishing guides operating in Alaska waters must obtain a current annual registration.
- Registrations are good for both freshwater and saltwater.
Both sport fish guiding businesses and individual sport fishing guides must register separately; however, if the owner of the business is also a guide, or the only guide, they do not need to register twice.
See information on the Business and Guide Registration page for specific requirements.
|Sport Fishing Business Owner||No Fee|
|Sport Fishing Guide||No Fee|
|Sport Fishing Business Owner/Guide Combined||No Fee|
Assistants, deckhands, and similar persons who work directly under the supervision of and on the same vessel as a State of Alaska registered fishing guide are exempt from the guide registration requirements.
