FINAL Regulatory Impact Review for a Regulatory Amendment to the Federal Regulations Implementing the Pacific Halibut Fisheries Off Alaska.

This Regulatory Impact Review (RIR) analyzes a proposed management measure that would apply exclusively to the Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) individual fishing quota (IFQ) fishery in the Community Quota Entity (CQE) Program in IFQ Regulatory Area 3A. The measure under consideration would allow eligible CQE community residents in Area 3A to fish halibut IFQ derived from CQE-held D class QS on C or D class vessels in Area 3A.
