Initial Review/Final Action for Amendment 33 to the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crab Fishery Management Plan

June 01, 2008

Initial Review/Final Action for Amendment 33 to the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crab Fishery Management Plan to amend the cost recovery fee program.

Under the Fishery Management Plan for the Bering Sea/ Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs, NOAA Fisheries collects fees to cover the costs of implementation of the rationalization program and to subsidize the Federal loan program for quota share purchases. The action is necessary to allow NOAA Fisheries the flexibility to reduce the portion of collected fees that are allocated to subsidize loans. The action would not affect timing of implementation of the loan program or the terms of that program.
