1993 Alaska Groundfish Harvest Specifications
NOAA Fisheries announces the final 1993 initial harvest specifications of total allowable catch for Pacific ocean perch in the Gulf of Alaska, and a corresponding adjustment to the final TAC specifications for "other species." These actions are necessary to establish harvest limits for POP, and to adjust accordingly the TAC specifications for "other species" during the 1993 fishing year. NOAA Fisheries also is closing specified areas to directed fishing for POP consistent with the final 1993 initial specifications for POP. These actions are intended to carry out management objectives contained in the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska.
