At its 159th Meeting, the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council directed staff to prepare an amendment to the Pelagics Fishery Ecosystem Plan to modify the LVPA and identify options to reduce, for a period of one year, the northern boundary of the LVPA around Tutuila, Manua, and Rose to 25 nautical miles and to reduce the LVPA around Swains to 12 nautical miles, as preliminarily preferred alternative. The purpose of this amendment is to provide a temporary increase in the area that can be fished by the large vessel segment of the American Samoa longline fleet such that competition between longline gears is reduced, albacore catch rates improved, and that there are reductions in the cost of longline trips, thus improving economic returns from the fishery. The need for this amendment is to promote the efficiency of the American Samoa longline fishery at a time when the fishery is experiencing difficulties in maintaining the economic viability of the fishery. 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., May 5, 2014, Port Administration Airport Building, Tafuna International Airport 1.
