Final Regulatory Impact Review for a Temporary Rule (Emergency Action) to Modify Season Start Date to the Central Gulf of Alaska Rockfish Program in 2021
Analysis of an emergency action to modify the season start date for the Central GOA Rockfish Program in 2021.
This Regulatory Impact Review evaluates the costs and benefits of an emergency rule to modify the season start date of the 2021 Central Gulf Rockfish Program fishery from May 1, 2021 to April 1, 2021 to address economic, social, and public health situations present in the rockfish fishery. This action would only modify to the season start date in the 2021 fishing year and would not affect the season start date in subsequent years. This action would not modify other aspects of the Central Gulf Rockfish Program.
