Amendment 75 to the FMP for the Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska Management Area
The North Pacific Fishery Management Council has submitted for Secretary of Commerce review Amendment 83 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area and Amendment 75 to the FMP for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska. If approved, the amendments would provide housekeeping revisions to the FMPs. The proposed revisions would update harvest, ecosystem, and socioeconomic information, consolidate text, and reorganize the documents. The intent of this action is to provide more recent information in the FMPs and to make them easier to read. This action will promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), the FMPs, and other applicable laws. Comments from the public are welcome.
