At the December 2015 Council meeting, the Science and Statistical Committee (SSC) addressed concerns about fishing pressure relative to biomass in the Western Aleutian Islands. The SSC recommended estimation of a maximum sub-area species catch (MSSC) amount to guide the public regarding the level of catch needed to alleviate the "concern". For 2016, the MSSC amount is 58 mt and 324 mt for the Western and Central Aleutian Islands, respectively. Information on the calculation of these amounts may be found in the most recent Blackspotted and Rougheye Rockfish stock assessment at http://www.afsc.noaa.gov/REFM/Docs/2015/BSAIrougheye.pdf
