DSBG fishing under two of these EFPs has been ongoing in 2015–2016, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) recommended these both be extended through the 2017–2018 fishing season (http://www.pcouncil.org/wp-content/ uploads/2016/03/0316decisions.pdf). In addition to the request for the two extensions, a new DSBG EFP application was submitted to the Council by Dave Stephens for two additional vessels to conduct DSBG fishing activities (herein referred to as the ‘‘Stephens EFP’’) (http:// www.pcouncil.org/wp-content/uploads/ 2016/07/0616decisions.pdf).
