Availability of West Coast Groundfish Regulations

October 26, 2018

Public Notice: NMFS-SEA-18-19. For information, contact: Keeley Kent (206) 526-4655, Gretchen Hanshew (206) 526-6147.

We are changing the interface you have used in the past to access West Coast groundfish regulations. We used to maintain a document of relevant groundfish regulations, called the "Pink Pages", which was created by NOAA Fisheries West Coast Region groundfish staff. However, because of workload constraints and recent improvements in the electronic version of the Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR), we will no longer maintain the Pink Pages.

The eCFR offers the most up-to-date version of the groundfish regulations. It also offers a "Browse/Search Past" feature to view regulations as far back as 2015.

The links below will take you to the main page of the eCFR that details the West Coast groundfish regulations (Title 50, Section 660), as well as the eCFR FAQs. Additionally, the link the West Coast groundfish portion of the eCFR is available on our NOAA Fisheries West Coast Region groundfish webpage.

The eCFR lists different regulatory topics, including harvest specifications and management measures for the various sectors, in individual sections of the regulations. Those sections and their titles are listed on that main page and are hyperlinked.

We are happy to assist you with questions on how to access specific information on the eCFR. See our contact information at the top of this notice.
