NOAA Fisheries is announcing a proposed rule for the 2023 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 461,750 mt. This TAC includes the 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 21, 2023.

More information is available on our website.
