Do I need to provide my Social Security Number (SSN) to renew my commercial fishing licenses?

The commercial fishing license is an occupational license, and is subject to the same federal law requiring SSN collection for other licenses. WDFW has collected SSNs from all persons seeking to renew commercial fishing licenses since 1998. Commercial fishers will continue to be required to provide their SSNs at the time of license renewal.
