Hasaamac Access Applications

The Ha’oom Fisheries Society is accepting applications for hasaamac (dungeness crab) access for a term of one (1) year, starting February 10th, 2022.

Conditions of Access:

  • An electronic monitoring (EM) system is a requirement in the Five Nations right-based sale fishery for crab.
  • License holders must provide Ha’oom with active hauling records during the determined license term.

Please note: license holders will have traps reallocated to other interested participants if not used within a designated period, which will be determined by the selection committee.

If you are interested in submitting an application, please complete the following form (two pages) and deliver the completed form to our office in person or send in by email or mail. Applications will continue to be received until trap access is fully allocated. All applications received shall be reviewed by HFS Board of Directors. The successful fishers will be selected based on evaluation of the appended License/Quota Decision Guide.
