Regulatory Impact Review/Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis Proposed Amendment 41 to the Fishery Management Plan for Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs: Emergency Exemptions from Regional Landing Requirements

May 02, 2012

In the spring of 2007, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council established a committee to address certain concerns with the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands crab rationalization program.

To avoid potential insurmountable administrative burdens the Council identified for analysis a system of civil contracts between harvesters, processors, and regional representatives as the means of defining the exemption from the regional landing requirements. The analysis contains a Regulatory Impact Review and an Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis.
