Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Plan
This Fishery Management Plan (FMP) governs groundfish fisheries of the United States (U.S.) exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the Bering Sea and that portion of the North Pacific Ocean adjacent to the Aleutian Islands which is between 170Ε W. longitude and the U.S.-Russian Convention Line of 1867. The FMP covers fisheries for all stocks of finfish and marine invertebrates except salmonids, shrimps, scallops, snails, king crab, Tanner crab, Dungeness crab, corals, surf clams, horsehair crab, lyre crab, Pacific halibut, and Pacific herring. Implemented on January 1, 1982, it has been amended 117 times. Its focus has changed from the regulation of mainly foreign fisheries to the management of fully domestic groundfish fisheries.
