Amendment 30 to the FMP for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs
NOAA Fisheries issues regulations implementing Amendment 30 to the Fishery Management Plan for Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs. Amendment 30 amends the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands Crab Rationalization Program to modify procedures for producing and submitting documents that are required under the arbitration system to resolve price, delivery, and other disputes between harvesters and processors. This action is necessary to improve the quality and timeliness of market information used to conduct arbitration proceedings. This action is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the FMP, and other applicable law.
