Prince William Sound Sport and Subsistence Shrimp Season Closure Reminder and Harvest Reports
(Prince William Sound) – The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) would like to remind anglers that the 2022 Prince William Sound Non-Commercial Shrimp (Sport and Subsistence) season ends by rule at 11:59 p.m. Thursday September 15, 2022.
All Prince William Sound shrimp harvest and effort information is important and must be reported online no later than October 15, 2022. Reporting is mandatory whether a license holder has gone shrimp fishing or not. Prompt and accurate catch reports are necessary for the management of this fishery. Returning permits by mail or hand delivery is no longer an acceptable means of reporting.
Beginning in 2022, if you do not submit your Prince William Sound Sport or Subsistence Harvest Report online by the October 15 reporting deadline, you will lose fishing privileges in the Prince William Non-Commercial Shrimp Fishery Sound in 2023. If you have questions about online crop reporting or need assistance, please contact your local ADF&G office.
