Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review for an Emergency Interim Rule to Implement Requirements of the American Fisheries Act Related to the Community Development Quota Program

January 06, 1999

Analysis of the impact of an emergency interim rule amending 50 CFR part 679 to implement some requirements of the AFA

This Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review analyzes the impact of an emergency interim rule that temporarily amends NOAA Fisheries regulations to 1) allow pollock bycatch in the non-pollock groundfish CDQ fisheries to accrue against the allowance for incidental catch of pollock established by section 206(b), and 2) remove the allocation of squid from the CDQ Program to allow the CDQ groups to fully harvest the pollock CDQ directed fishing allowance.
