Summary

NOAA Fisheries publishes standard prices and fee percentages for cost recovery for the Amendment 80 Program, the American Fisheries Act Program, the Aleutian Islands Pollock Program, and the Western Alaska Community Development Quota Groundfish and Halibut Programs. This action is intended to provide the standard prices and fee percentages to calculate the required payment for cost recovery fees due by the date in the notice.

In 2016, NOAA Fisheries published regulations to implement cost recovery fee programs for the Western Alaska Community Development Quota Program for groundfish and halibut, and three limited access privilege programs: The American Fisheries Act, Aleutian Islands Pollock, and Amendment 80 Programs. The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act authorizes and requires the collection of cost recovery fees for the CDQ Program and limited access privilege programs. Cost recovery fees recover the actual costs directly related to the management, data collection, and enforcement of the programs.
