Final Environmental Assessment/Regulatory Impact Review For Amendment 12: Revisions to the Fishery Management Plan for the Salmon Fisheries in the EEZ Off the Coast of Alaska

June 02, 2012

The FMP is being comprehensively revised to comply with the recent MSA requirements, such as annual catch limits and accountability measures, and to more clearly reflect the Council’s policy with regard to State of Alaska management authority for commercial and sport salmon fisheries in the EEZ.

The Fishery Management Plan for the Salmon Fisheries in the EEZ off the Coast of Alaska manages the salmon fisheries in the United States Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ; 3 nautical miles to 200 nautical miles offshore) off Alaska.

This document provides decision-makers and the public with an evaluation of the environmental, social, and economic effects of alternative fishery management plans for the salmon fisheries in the EEZ and addresses the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act and Executive Order 12866.
