On 22 June 2009, posted in: SBA by admin | Comments Off

On June 10, 2010, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) published proposed rules to initiate implementation of Amendments 20 and 21 of the Fishery Management Plan. Amendment 20 would establish a trawl rationalization program for the Pacific Coast groundfish fishery, consisting of an individual fishing quota (IFQ) program for the shore-based trawl fleet and cooperative (co-op) programs for the at-sea trawl fleet. Amendment 21 would establish fixed allocations for limited entry trawl participants. Comments must be received by July 12, 2010.
