Regulatory Impact Review for an Emergency Rule to Relieve Regional Delivery Requirements for the Western Aleutian Islands Golden King Crab Fishery

January 11, 2010

Analysis of the economic impacts of temporarily relieving the existing delivery and processing requirements.

The Council has requested that NOAA Fisheries promulgate an emergency rule to relieve the existing regional delivery and processing requirement in the Western Aleutian Islands golden king crab fishery. An emergency exists because no processing facility is currently open in the West region, yet federal regulations require that a portion of crab be processed in the West region.
