EA/RIR/FRFA for Amendment 69 to the FMP for Groundfish of the GOA to Modify the TAC Calculation for the “Other Species” Complex and Regulatory Amendment to Raise the Maximum Retainable Amount of “Other Species” in the Arrowtooth Flounder Fishery

January 01, 2006

Analysis of changing the way the total allowable catch (TAC) is determined for "other species" complex and changing the calculation of “other species” complex maximum retainable amounts (MRAs) in the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) groundfish fishery.

This Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review/Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis evaluates the environmental impacts, the costs and benefits, and the small entity impacts, of a proposed Amendment to the GOA Fishery Management Plan to change the way the total allowable catch (TAC) is determined for the “other species” complex. The analysis also examines alternatives for changing the calculation of “other species” complex maximum retainable amounts (MRAs) in directed fisheries.
