The Western Alaska Community Development Quota (CDQ) Program is an economic development program associated with federally managed fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI). The CDQ Program receives apportionments of the annual catch limits for a variety of commercially valuable species in the BSAI, which are in turn allocated among six different non-profit managing organizations representing different affiliations of communities (CDQ groups). The CDQ Program redistributes a portion of commercially important BSAI fisheries species to adjacent communities. There are 65 communities participating in the program. CDQ groups use the revenue derived from the harvest of their fisheries allocations as a basis both for funding economic development activities and for providing employment opportunities. Thus, the successful harvest of CDQ Program allocations is integral to achieving the goals of the program. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) manages the groundfish fisheries in the exclusive economic zone off Alaska. NMFS manages the groundfish and crab fisheries of the BSAI under the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area and the Fishery Management Plan for Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs (FMPs). The North Pacific Fishery Management Council prepared the FMPs under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation & Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.) as amended in 2006. The International Pacific Halibut Commission and NMFS manage fishing for Pacific halibut through regulations established under the authority of the Northern Pacific Halibut Act of 1982. Regulations implementing the FMPs appear at 50 CFR parts 300, 679, and 680. II. Method of Collection By fax, by mail, and online.

    The Western Alaska Community Development Quota (CDQ) Program is an 
economic development program associated with federally managed 
fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area 
(BSAI). The CDQ Program receives apportionments of the annual catch 
limits for a variety of commercially valuable species in the BSAI, 
which are in turn allocated among six different non-profit managing 
organizations representing different affiliations of communities (CDQ 
groups). The CDQ Program redistributes a portion of commercially 
important BSAI fisheries species to adjacent communities. There are 65 
communities participating in the program. CDQ groups use the revenue 
derived from the harvest of their fisheries allocations as a basis both 
for funding economic development activities and for providing 
employment opportunities. Thus, the successful harvest of CDQ Program 
allocations is integral to achieving the goals of the program.
    National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) manages the groundfish
