NOAA Fisheries is announcing a proposed rule for the 2022 Pacific whiting fishery, which would implement the recommendation of the Pacific Hake/Whiting Treaty Joint Management Committee (JMC) on a U.S. total allowable catch (TAC) of 402,646 mt. This TAC includes the interim tribal Pacific whiting allocation; a set-aside for incidental catch and research; allocations for the non-tribal Pacific whiting fishery, and harvest guideline split among the shoreside, catcher-processor, and mothership sectors. 

Public comments on this proposed rule must be received by April 28, 2022.

More information on this proposed rule is available on our website. Background information can be found on the Pacific Hake/Whiting Treaty page.
