Notice of Opportunities to Submit Public Comments on 2024 Ocean Salmon Fisheries

March 12, 2024

Opportunity for the public to provide oral and written comments on the development of the regulations to manage the 2024 ocean salmon fisheries off the U.S. West Coast

NOAA Fisheries is announcing an opportunity to comment on the development of the 2024 ocean salmon management measures for commercial, tribal, and recreational salmon fisheries off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California. These comments will be used by the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) to make final recommendations for the 2024 management measures. The Council will develop alternatives for 2024 ocean salmon fishery management at the March 2024 Council meeting before selecting the recommended 2024 ocean salmon fishery management measures at their April 2024 meeting.

Written comments may be submitted via the Federal register notice (89 FR 17834, March 12, 2024) and must be received electronically or in hard copy by March 31, 2024, prior to the April 2024 Council meeting.
NOAA Fisheries will publish a final rule in May 2024 to implement these management measures.
