Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Prohibited Species Donation Program
NMFS announces the renewal of two prohibited species donation (PSD) permits to SeaShare, authorizing this organization to distribute Pacific salmon and Pacific halibut to economically disadvantaged individuals under the PSD program. Salmon and halibut are caught incidentally during directed fishing for groundfish with
trawl gear off Alaska. This action is necessary to comply with provisions of
the PSD program and is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the
North Pacific Fishery Management Council.
