December 01, 1998

Analysis of additional observer coverage requirements

This Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review analyzes the impact of an emergency interim rule amending 50 CFR part 679 to establish additional observer coverage requirements for the 20 catcher/processor vessels listed under section 208(e) (1)-(20) of the American Fisheries Act, Public Law 105-277 (AFA). It would also establish in-season authority to manage the non-pollack harvest limitations required under the AFA for the 20 vessels.
