Amendment 83 to the FMP for the Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area
NOAA Fisheries announces the approval of 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. The amendments make housekeeping revisions to the FMPs. The revisions update harvest, ecosystem, and socioeconomic information, consolidate text, and reorganize the documents. The intent of this action is to update information in the FMPs and to make them easier to read. This action promotes the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the FMPs, and other applicable laws.
