EA/RIR/FRFA for Amendment 97 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska Chinook Salmon Prohibited Species Catch in the Gulf of Alaska Non-Pollock Trawl Fisheries

August 01, 2014

Analysis on setting prohibited species catch (PSC) limits for Chinook salmon in the Central and Western Gulf of Alaska groundfish trawl fisheries

This document analyzes proposed management measures that would apply to all groundfish trawl fisheries in the Central and Western Gulf of Alaska (GOA), except the directed pollock fishery. The measures under consideration include setting prohibited species catch (PSC) limits in the Central and Western GOA for Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), which would close fisheries in those regulatory areas once attained, and full retention of all salmon species. Implementation of the management measures evaluated in this analysis would require an amendment to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA Groundfish FMP), as well as amendments to implementing regulations
