NMFS issues this notice to decrease the fee rate to 3.5 percent for the Pacific Coast Groundfish fee-share fishery to repay the $28,428,718.88 Groundfish sub-loan of the $35,662,471 reduction loan that financed the Pacific Coast Groundfish fishing capacity reduction program. NMFS annually recalculates the fee rate that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment within the specified 30-year term. NMFS has determined that the current fee rate of 3.5 percent for the groundfish fishery is projected to collect more than the annual amortization amount needed for 2021.
