Issues Identified for Discussion Under this Amendment (1) Research-Set-Aside (RSA) provision: Currently there is no option for allocating a portion of the spiny dogfish quota to support research projects. The Councils are considering adding an RSA provision to the FMP. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39063 (2) Commercial Quota Allocation Alternatives: Currently, the commercial quota for spiny dogfish is allocated seasonally into two periods in the fishing year. Period 1 (May 1–Oct 31) is allocated 57.9 percent of the quota and Period 2 (Nov 1–Apr 30) is allocated 42.1 percent of the quota. The Councils are considering alternative allocation (i.e., geographic) schemes for the Federal quota. (3) Specifying the spiny dogfish quota and/or trip limits by sex: The Councils are considering modifications to the FMP that would allow for sex-specific annual specification of spiny dogfish commercial quota and/or trip limits. (4) Limited Access Spiny Dogfish Permit: Federal spiny dogfish permits are currently available to all vessels. The Councils are considering modifying the Federal permit to make it a limited access permit. It is possible that an incidental catch permit would also be established that would be open access. (5) Recreational Spiny Dogfish Fishery: To the extent that recreationally caught spiny dogfish are retained, that component of the overall fishery is not acknowledged in the FMP. The Councils are considering adding management measures for the recreational fishery to the FMP. Following the scoping process, the Councils may develop additional approaches and alternatives (including No Action) to address these issues, consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. The above issues under consideration are described in greater detail in the scoping document itself; copies may be obtained from the Council (see ADDRESSES) or via the Internet at https://www.mafmc.org /comments/comments.htm.
