Summary

NMFS is prohibiting retention of “other rockfish” in the Aleutian Islands subarea of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI). This action is necessary because the 2020 “other rockfish” total allowable catch (TAC) in the Aleutian Islands subarea of the BSAI has been reached.
