Amendment 12 to the FMP for the Salmon Fisheries Off Alaska
NOAA Fisheries issues regulations to implement Amendment 12 to the Fishery Management Plan for Salmon Fisheries in the EEZ off the Coast of Alaska. Amendment 12 comprehensively revises and updates the FMP to reflect the North Pacific Fishery Management Council's salmon management policy and to comply with Federal law. This action is necessary to revise specific regulations and remove obsolete regulations in accordance with the modifications in Amendment 12. This action promotes the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the FMP, and other applicable laws.
