Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Pacific Cod 
by Non-American Fisheries Act Crab Vessels Harvesting Pacific Cod for 
Processing by the Offshore Component in the Central Regulatory Area of 
the Gulf of Alaska

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by non-
American Fisheries Act (AFA) crab vessels that are subject to sideboard 
limits harvesting Pacific cod for processing by the offshore component 
in the Central Regulatory Area of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This action 
is necessary to prevent exceeding the A season allowance of the 2011 
Pacific cod sideboard limit established for non-AFA crab vessels 
harvesting Pacific cod for processing by the offshore component in the 
Central Regulatory Area of the GOA.

[[Page 4552]]


DATES: Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), January 21, 
2011, through 1200 hrs, A.l.t., September 1, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Josh Keaton, 907-586-7228.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the 
GOA exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan 
for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska (FMP) prepared by the North 
Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the Magnuson-
Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing 
fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H 
of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. Regulations governing sideboard 
protections for GOA groundfish fisheries appear at subpart B of 50 CFR 
part 680.
    The A season allowance of the 2011 Pacific cod sideboard limit 
established for non-AFA crab vessels that are subject to sideboard 
limits harvesting Pacific cod for processing by the offshore component 
in the Central Regulatory Area of the GOA is 502 metric tons (mt), as 
established by the final 2010 and 2011 harvest specifications for 
groundfish of the GOA (75 FR 11749, March 12, 2010) and inseason 
adjustment (76 FR 469, January 5, 2011).
    In accordance with Sec.  680.22(e)(2)(i), the Administrator, Alaska 
Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator) has determined that the A season 
allowance of the 2011 Pacific cod sideboard limit established for non-
AFA crab vessels harvesting Pacific cod for processing by the offshore 
component in the Central Regulatory Area of the GOA will soon be 
reached. Therefore, the Regional Administrator is establishing a 
sideboard directed fishing allowance of 492 mt, and is setting aside 
the remaining 10 mt as bycatch to support other anticipated groundfish 
fisheries. In accordance with Sec.  680.22(e)(3), the Regional 
Administrator finds that this sideboard directed fishing allowance has 
been reached. Consequently, NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for 
Pacific cod by non-AFA crab vessels that are subject to sideboard 
limits harvesting Pacific cod for processing by the offshore component 
in the Central Regulatory Area of the GOA.
    After the effective date of this closure the maximum retainable 
amounts at Sec.  679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip.

Classification

    This action responds to the best available information recently 
obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, 
NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior 
notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set 
forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and 
contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and 
contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from 
responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and 
would delay the sideboard directed fishing closure of Pacific cod for 
non-AFA crab vessels that are subject to sideboard limits harvesting 
Pacific cod for processing by the offshore component in the Central 
Regulatory Area of the GOA. NMFS was unable to publish a notice 
providing time for public comment because the most recent, relevant 
data only became available as of January 20, 2011.
    The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the 
effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is 
based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and 
opportunity for public comment.
    This action is required by Sec.  680.22 and is exempt from review 
under Executive Order 12866.
