The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) requires that each regional fishery management council submit any FMP or plan amendment it prepares to NMFS for review and approval, disapproval, or partial approval. The Magnuson-Stevens Act also requires that NMFS, upon receiving an FMP or amendment, immediately publish a notice that the FMP or amendment is available for public review and comment. NMFS will consider the public comments received during the comment period described above in determining whether to approve Amendment 15 to the FMP. Amendment 15 would implement a limited entry program for the Pacific whiting fishery, which occurs within VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:15 Mar 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California. The whiting fishery is currently managed with separate allocations for the tribal and non-tribal whiting fisheries, and with sectorspecific whiting allocations for the three non-tribal sectors: mothership, catcher/ processor, and shore-based. Vessels that participate in the mothership sector include both the motherships themselves and the catcher vessels that deliver to the at-sea mothership processors. Vessels that participate in the catcher/processor sector are selfcontained at-sea processors that both catch and process fish. Vessels that participate in the shore-based sector are catcher vessels that deliver their catch to land-based processing plants. This action would limit participation in each of the three non-tribal sectors of the Pacific whiting fishery to those vessels, both catcher vessels and at-sea processing vessels, with historic participation in those particular sectors. NMFS welcomes comments on the proposed FMP amendment through the end of the comment period. A proposed rule to implement Amendment 15 has been submitted for Secretarial review and approval. NMFS expects to publish and request public review and comment on proposed regulations to implement Amendment 15 in the near future. Public comments on the proposed rule must be received by the end of the comment period on the amendment to be considered in the approval/ disapproval decision on the amendment. All comments received by the end of the comment period for the amendment, whether specifically directed to the amendment or the proposed rule, will be considered in the approval/disapproval decision.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) requires that each regional fishery management council submit any Fishery Management Plan (FMP) amendment it prepares to NMFS for review and approval, disapproval, or partial approval by the Secretary of Commerce. The Magnuson-Stevens Act also requires that NMFS, upon receiving an FMP amendment, immediately publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing that the amendment is available for public review and comment. This action constitutes such notice for Amendment 24 to the FMP for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs. NMFS will consider the public comments received during the comment period in determining whether to approve this FMP amendment. In December 2007, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) unanimously recommended Amendment 24 to the Fishery Management Plan for Bering Sea/ Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs. Amendment 24 would satisfy the Magnuson-Stevens Act requirement that FMPs contain objective and measurable criteria for determining whether a stock is overfished, whether overfishing is occurring, and for rebuilding overfished stocks. Section 301(a) of the MagnusonStevens Act establishes national standards for fishery conservation and management, and requires that all FMPs create management measures consistent with those standards. National Standard 1 requires that conservation and management measures shall ‘‘prevent VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:15 Mar 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 overfishing while achieving, on a continuing basis, the optimum yield’’ from fisheries in Federal waters. Amendment 24 would (1) specify a five-tier system for determining the status of the crab stocks managed under the FMP, (2) establish a process for annually assigning each crab stock to a tier and for setting the overfishing and overfished levels, and (3) reduce the number of crab stocks managed under the FMP. The stocks status determination criteria in Amendment 24 are necessary to reflect current scientific information and accomplish the following: • Provide an FMP framework to annually define values using the best available scientific information. • Provide a new tier system that accommodates varying levels of uncertainty of information and takes advantage of alternative biological reference points. • Define the status determination criteria and their application to the appropriate component of the population. Removal of Stocks Amendment 24 would remove twelve state-managed stocks from the FMP for which the State of Alaska (State) has a legitimate interest in the conservation and management. For each of these stocks, the majority of catch in the fisheries occurs in State waters or the State either has closed the directed fishery or manages a limited incidental or exploratory fishery. The State would continue to manage these stocks as they currently do under the deferred management authority of the FMP. Five-Tier System The stocks status determination criteria for crab stocks would be annually calculated using a five-tier system that accommodates varying levels of uncertainty of information. The five-tier system would incorporate new scientific information and provide a mechanism to continually improve the stock status determination criteria as new information becomes available. The five-tier system would be used to determine the status of the crab stocks and whether (1) overfishing is occurring or the rate or level of fishing mortality for a stock or stock complex is approaching overfishing, and (2) a stock or stock complex is overfished or a stock or stock complex is approaching an overfished condition. Overfishing would be determined by comparing the overfishing level, as calculated in the five-tier system for the crab fishing year, with the catch estimates for that crab fishing year. PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 14767 An overfished condition would be determined by comparing annual biomass estimates to the established minimum stock size threshold (MSST), defined as one half the biomass estimated to produce maximum sustainable yield to the fishery. For stocks where MSSTs (or proxies) are defined, if the biomass drops below the MSST (or proxy thereof) then the stock would be considered to be overfished. MSST or proxies would be set for stocks in Tiers 1 through 4. For Tier 5 stocks, it would not be possible to set an MSST because there are no reliable estimates of biomass. Annually, the overfishing level for each stock would be calculated for the upcoming crab fishing year based on the most recent abundance estimates prior to the State of Alaska setting the total allowable catch or guideline harvest level for that stock’s upcoming crab fishing season. First, a stock would be assigned to one of the five tiers based on the availability of information for that stock. Tier assignments would be made through the Council’s Crab Plan Team process and recommended by the Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee. Once a stock is assigned to a tier, the stock status level would be determined based on biomass estimates from recent survey data and simulation models, as available. The tier system would specify three levels of stock status: ‘‘a,’’ ‘‘b,’’ and ‘‘c.’’ At stock status level ‘‘a,’’ current stock biomass exceeds the biomass estimated to produce maximum sustainable yield to the fishery. At status level ‘‘b,’’ current stock biomass is less than necessary produce maximum sustainable yield to the fishery but greater than a level specified as the critical biomass threshold. At stock status level ‘‘c,’’ current stock biomass is below the critical biomass threshold and directed fishing would be prohibited. The stock status level determines the equation for calculating the fishing rate used to determine the overfishing level. For stocks in Tiers 1 through 4, the fishing rate would be reduced as biomass declines by stock status level. Tier 5 stocks have no reliable estimates of biomass or natural mortality and only historical data of retained catch is available. For stocks in Tier 5, the overfishing level would be specified in terms of an average catch value over an historical time period, unless the Scientific and Statistical Committee recommends an alternative value based on the best available scientific information. After the crab fishing year, NMFS would determine whether overfishing E:\FR\FM\19MRP1.SGM 19MRP1 14768 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 54 / Wednesday, March 19, 2008 / Proposed Rules mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with PROPOSALS occurred by comparing the overfishing level with the catch from the previous crab fishing year. For stocks where nontarget fishery removal data are available, catch would include all fishery removals, including retained catch and discard losses. Discard losses would be determined by multiplying the appropriate handling mortality rate by observer estimates of bycatch discards. For stocks where only retained catch information is available, the overfishing level would be set for and compared to the retained catch. Annually, the Council, Scientific and Statistical Committee, and Crab Plan Team will review (1) the stock assessment documents, (2) the OFLs and total allowable catches or guideline harvest levels for the upcoming crab fishing year, (3) NMFS’s determination of whether overfishing occurred in the previous crab fishing year, and (4) NMFS’s determination of whether any stocks are overfished. The Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC) reviewed the proposed VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:15 Mar 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 overfishing definitions in Amendment 24 and supporting environmental assessment for compliance with guidelines provided for National Standards 1 and 2 in 50 CFR part 600. During this review, the AFSC recommended modifications to the amendment text to clarify the Council’s intent and comply with the MagnusonStevens Act. At its February 2008 meeting, the Council adopted the FMP text for Amendment 24 which included the AFSC’s recommendations. On February 14, 2008, the AFSC certified that the proposed definitions (1) have sufficient scientific merit, (2) are likely to result in effective Council action to protect a managed stock from closely approaching or reaching an overfished status, (3) provide a basis for objective measurement of the status of a managed stock against the definition, and (4) are operationally feasible.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation 
and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) requires that each regional 
fishery management council submit any Fishery Management Plan (FMP) 
amendment it prepares to NMFS for review and approval, disapproval, or 
partial approval by the Secretary of Commerce. The Magnuson-Stevens Act 
also requires that NMFS, upon receiving an FMP amendment, immediately 
publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing that the amendment 
is available for public review and comment. This action constitutes 
such notice for Amendment 24 to the FMP for the Bering Sea/Aleutian 
Islands King and Tanner Crabs. NMFS will consider the public comments 
received during the comment period in determining whether to approve 
this FMP amendment.
    In December 2007, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council 
(Council) unanimously recommended Amendment 24 to the Fishery 
Management Plan for Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs. 
Amendment 24 would satisfy the Magnuson-Stevens Act requirement that 
FMPs contain objective and measurable criteria for determining whether 
a stock is overfished, whether overfishing is occurring, and for 
rebuilding overfished stocks. Section 301(a) of the Magnuson-Stevens 
Act establishes national standards for fishery conservation and 
management, and requires that all FMPs create management measures 
consistent with those standards. National Standard 1 requires that 
conservation and management measures shall ``prevent overfishing while 
achieving, on a continuing basis, the optimum yield'' from fisheries in 
Federal waters.
    Amendment 24 would (1) specify a five-tier system for determining 
the status of the crab stocks managed under the FMP, (2) establish a 
process for annually assigning each crab stock to a tier and for 
setting the overfishing and overfished levels, and (3) reduce the 
number of crab stocks managed under the FMP. The stocks status 
determination criteria in Amendment 24 are necessary to reflect current 
scientific information and accomplish the following:
     Provide an FMP framework to annually define values using 
the best available scientific information.
     Provide a new tier system that accommodates varying levels 
of uncertainty of information and takes advantage of alternative 
biological reference points.
     Define the status determination criteria and their 
application to the appropriate component of the population.

Removal of Stocks

    Amendment 24 would remove twelve state-managed stocks from the FMP 
for which the State of Alaska (State) has a legitimate interest in the 
conservation and management. For each of these stocks, the majority of 
catch in the fisheries occurs in State waters or the State either has 
closed the directed fishery or manages a limited incidental or 
exploratory fishery. The State would continue to manage these stocks as 
they currently do under the deferred management authority of the FMP.

Five-Tier System

    The stocks status determination criteria for crab stocks would be 
annually calculated using a five-tier system that accommodates varying 
levels of uncertainty of information. The five-tier system would 
incorporate new scientific information and provide a mechanism to 
continually improve the stock status determination criteria as new 
information becomes available. The five-tier system would be used to 
determine the status of the crab stocks and whether (1) overfishing is 
occurring or the rate or level of fishing mortality for a stock or 
stock complex is approaching overfishing, and (2) a stock or stock 
complex is overfished or a stock or stock complex is approaching an 
overfished condition.
    Overfishing would be determined by comparing the overfishing level, 
as calculated in the five-tier system for the crab fishing year, with 
the catch estimates for that crab fishing year.
    An overfished condition would be determined by comparing annual 
biomass estimates to the established minimum stock size threshold 
(MSST), defined as one half the biomass estimated to produce maximum 
sustainable yield to the fishery. For stocks where MSSTs (or proxies) 
are defined, if the biomass drops below the MSST (or proxy thereof) 
then the stock would be considered to be overfished. MSST or proxies 
would be set for stocks in Tiers 1 through 4. For Tier 5 stocks, it 
would not be possible to set an MSST because there are no reliable 
estimates of biomass.
    Annually, the overfishing level for each stock would be calculated 
for the upcoming crab fishing year based on the most recent abundance 
estimates prior to the State of Alaska setting the total allowable 
catch or guideline harvest level for that stock's upcoming crab fishing 
season. First, a stock would be assigned to one of the five tiers based 
on the availability of information for that stock. Tier assignments 
would be made through the Council's Crab Plan Team process and 
recommended by the Council's Scientific and Statistical Committee.
    Once a stock is assigned to a tier, the stock status level would be 
determined based on biomass estimates from recent survey data and 
simulation models, as available. The tier system would specify three 
levels of stock status: ``a,'' ``b,'' and ``c.'' At stock status level 
``a,'' current stock biomass exceeds the biomass estimated to produce 
maximum sustainable yield to the fishery. At status level ``b,'' 
current stock biomass is less than necessary produce maximum 
sustainable yield to the fishery but greater than a level specified as 
the critical biomass threshold. At stock status level ``c,'' current 
stock biomass is below the critical biomass threshold and directed 
fishing would be prohibited. The stock status level determines the 
equation for calculating the fishing rate used to determine the 
overfishing level. For stocks in Tiers 1 through 4, the fishing rate 
would be reduced as biomass declines by stock status level.
    Tier 5 stocks have no reliable estimates of biomass or natural 
mortality and only historical data of retained catch is available. For 
stocks in Tier 5, the overfishing level would be specified in terms of 
an average catch value over an historical time period, unless the 
Scientific and Statistical Committee recommends an alternative value 
based on the best available scientific information.
    After the crab fishing year, NMFS would determine whether 
overfishing

[[Page 14768]]

occurred by comparing the overfishing level with the catch from the 
previous crab fishing year. For stocks where non-target fishery removal 
data are available, catch would include all fishery removals, including 
retained catch and discard losses. Discard losses would be determined 
by multiplying the appropriate handling mortality rate by observer 
estimates of bycatch discards. For stocks where only retained catch 
information is available, the overfishing level would be set for and 
compared to the retained catch.
    Annually, the Council, Scientific and Statistical Committee, and 
Crab Plan Team will review (1) the stock assessment documents, (2) the 
OFLs and total allowable catches or guideline harvest levels for the 
upcoming crab fishing year, (3) NMFS's determination of whether 
overfishing occurred in the previous crab fishing year, and (4) NMFS's 
determination of whether any stocks are overfished.
    The Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC) reviewed the proposed 
overfishing definitions in Amendment 24 and supporting environmental 
assessment for compliance with guidelines provided for National 
Standards 1 and 2 in 50 CFR part 600. During this review, the AFSC 
recommended modifications to the amendment text to clarify the 
Council's intent and comply with the Magnuson-Stevens Act. At its 
February 2008 meeting, the Council adopted the FMP text for Amendment 
24 which included the AFSC's recommendations. On February 14, 2008, the 
AFSC certified that the proposed definitions (1) have sufficient 
scientific merit, (2) are likely to result in effective Council action 
to protect a managed stock from closely approaching or reaching an 
overfished status, (3) provide a basis for objective measurement of the 
status of a managed stock against the definition, and (4) are 
operationally feasible.
    An EA was prepared for Amendment 24 that describes the management 
background, the purpose and need for action, the management 
alternatives, and the environmental and socio-economic impacts of the 
alternatives (see ADDRESSES).
    Public comments are being solicited on proposed Amendment 24 
through May 19, 2008. All comments received by the end of the comment 
period on the amendment will be considered in the approval/disapproval 
decision. Comments received after that date will not be considered in 
the approval/disapproval decision on the amendment. To be considered, 
comments must be received--not just postmarked or otherwise 
transmitted--by the close of business on the last day of the comment 
period.
