Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Pacific Cod 
by Catcher Vessels Greater Than or Equal to 60 Feet Length Overall 
Using Pot Gear in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area

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 
catcher vessels greater than or equal to 60 feet (18.3 meters (m)) 
length overall (LOA) using pot gear in the Bering Sea and Aleutian 
Islands management area (BSAI). This action is necessary to prevent 
exceeding the 2018 Pacific cod total allowable catch allocated to 
catcher vessels greater than or equal to 60 feet (18.3m) LOA using pot 
gear in the BSAI.

DATES: Effective 1200 hours, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), October 30, 
2018, through 1200 hours, A.l.t., December 31, 2018.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the 
BSAI exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan 
for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area 
(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.
    The 2018 Pacific cod total allowable catch (TAC) allocated to 
catcher vessels greater than or equal to 60 feet (18.3m) LOA using pot 
gear in the BSAI is 15,235 metric tons (mt) as established by the final 
2018 and 2019 harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (89 FR 
8365, February 27, 2018).
    In accordance with Sec.  679.20(d)(1)(iii), the Administrator, 
Alaska Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), has determined that the 
2018 Pacific cod TAC allocated as a directed fishing allowance to 
catcher vessels greater than or equal to 60 feet (18.3m) LOA using pot 
gear in the BSAI will soon be reached. Consequently, NMFS is 
prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by catcher vessels greater 
than or

equal to 60 feet (18.3m) LOA using pot gear in the BSAI.
    While this closure is effective the maximum retainable amounts at 
Sec.  679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip.

    This action responds to the best available information recently

would delay the closure of directed fishing for Pacific cod by catcher
