Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review of Amendment 46 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska

Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska Management Plan: Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review

Amendment 46 would transfer the management of black and blue rockfish to the State of Alaska by removing both species for the fishery management plan. This transfer would allow the State of Alaska to extend its management authority for its registered vessels harvesting black and blue rockfish into Federal waters and would result in more effective conservation measures in both nearshore and offshore areas.
