Fish Resources of the Arctic Management Plan
This Fishery Management Plan (FMP) governs commercial fishing within the Arctic Management Area. The FMP management area, the Arctic Management Area, is all marine waters in the U.S. exclusive economic zone of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas from 3 nautical miles offshore the coast of Alaska or its baseline to 200 nautical miles offshore, north of Bering Strait (from Cape Prince of Wales to Cape Dezhneva) and westward to the 1990 United States/Russia maritime boundary line and eastward to the United States/Canada maritime boundary. The FMP governs commercial fishing for all stocks of fish, including all finfish, shellfish, or other marine living resources, except commercial fishing for Pacific salmon and Pacific halibut, which is managed under other authorities. The FMP was approved by the Secretary of Commerce on August 17, 2009 and implemented on December 3, 2009.
