Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review/Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis of a Regulatory Amendment Applicable to the Groundfish Fisheries off Alaska [Product Types and Product Recovery Rates]

September 24, 2009

Analysis of implementing standard product types and product recovery rates, and reducing the proportion of pollock that may be retained.

This Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review/Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis (EA/RIR/IRFA) addresses rulemaking that proposes to (1) implement standard product types and product recovery rates (PRRs) for groundfish species harvested off Alaska, and (2) reduce the proportion of pollock roe that may be retained while producing other pollock products.  Standard PRRs will be used to calculate round weight equivalents for purposes of monitoring groundfish quotas, enforcing directed fishing closures, and implementing the Council's Vessel Incentive Program.
