Summary

NMFS issues a final rule to revise regulations governing the Western Alaska Community Development Quota (CDQ) Program.

This action is necessary to improve NMFS's ability to effectively administer the CDQ Program. It is intended to further the goals and objectives of the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI FMP).
