Dear Penobscot Nation Elver Harvester:

You are receiving this notice because the Penobscot Nation has notified the Department of Marine Resources (DMR) that they intend to issue you an elver harvesting license for the 2019 elver season.     The Department of Marine Resources is preparing the swipe cards for distribution the week of March 11-15, at the following locations (please see below).     Please be aware that there is a $35 fee associated with the swipe card that must be paid to the Department PRIOR to picking up your swipe card.    Payments may be made by calling DMR at 624-6550, Option 2 and providing a credit card or debit card over the phone, or may be made in person ONLY at the DMR offices in Augusta (Marquardt Building, 32 Blossom Lane) with cash, check, money order, or debit or credit card.  The Marine Patrol Officers conducting the swipe card distribution are NOT able to take payments, although they will be able to call the Augusta office to confirm that payment has been made.

Cards will be available for pick up only at the following locations during the week of March 11-15.  Beginning March 18, all cards will be available for pick up at the DMR office in Augusta, through the remainder of the season.

Finally, please be aware that if you have any unresolved licensing issues (owe landings reports or reinstatement fees, have a court ordered suspension, etc.) you will not be able to pick up your swipe card until those eligibility issues have been resolved.

If you have any questions about your license eligibility, please contact the DMR Licensing Division at 624-6550, Option 2.

Thank you, and good luck this coming elver season.
