Regulatory Impact Review for Amendment 112 to the FMP for Groundfish of the BSAI, and Amendment 102 to the FMP for Groundfish of the GOA, Placing Certain Small Catcher/Processors in Partial Observer Coverage

February 10, 2016

An action for placing certain small catcher/processors in partial observer coverage.

This Regulatory Impact Review/Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis analyzes proposed management measures that would allow certain catcher/processors, with relatively small levels of groundfish production, to qualify for partial observer coverage under the annual observer deployment plan, in place of the full observer coverage normally required of catcher/processors. The cost-benefit analysis and small entity analysis in this document address the requirements of Executive Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act, respectively.
