Alaska Groundfish Harvest Specifications Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis

January 21, 2007

This analysis evaluates the impacts on small entities of alternative harvest strategies for the groundfish fisheries in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) off of Alaska.

The action under consideration is the adoption of a harvest strategy to govern the harvest of groundfish in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska Management Areas.  The preferred alternative is the status quo harvest strategy in which total allowable catches fall within the range of acceptable biological catches recommended by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council’s Groundfish Plan Teams and TACs recommended by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council.
