Alaska Chinook Salmon Bycatch Applications and Reporting Forms
Chinook salmon are accidentally caught in the federally managed pollock and non-pollock trawl fisheries in the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) and Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI).
In 2016, Amendment 110 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Groundfish of the BSAI was implemented to improve the management of Chinook and chum salmon bycatch in the Bering Sea pollock fishery by creating a comprehensive salmon bycatch avoidance program. This action is necessary to minimize Chinook and chum salmon bycatch in the Bering Sea pollock fishery to the extent practicable while maintaining the potential for the full harvest of the pollock total allowable catch (TAC) within specified prohibited species catch (PSC) limits.
