VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:29 Sep 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 West Coast Region, NMFS, has made a preliminary determination that an exempted fishing permit application titled, ‘‘Annual Vessel Limit Pooling for Groundfish IFQ Vessels Operating Under a Collective Enforcement Agreement in 2019–2020,’’ contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration. The application, submitted by the Fort Bragg Association and the Half Moon Bay Groundfish Marketing Association, requests approval to test the use of a voluntary collective agreement to manage a pool of annual vessel limits of cowcod quota pounds using a risk pooling model. This exempted fishing permit project would allow individual vessels participating in the California Groundfish Collective to exceed their annual vessel limit for cowcod, however the collective pooled annual vessel limit would not be exceeded. The primary goal of this exempted fishing permit project is to reduce the operational risk of catching cowcod for participating vessels, while allowing participating vessels to increase landings of more abundant groundfish stocks. Regulations under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed exempted fishing permit projects.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This action is authorized under MagnusonStevens Conservation and Management (Magnuson-Stevens Act) regulations at 50 CFR 600.745, which allow NMFS Regional Administrators to issue exempted fishing permits (EFP) to test fishing activities that would otherwise be prohibited. The California Groundfish Collective (CGC) is comprised of fishing associations from Fort Bragg and Half Moon Bay, and includes fishermen from three ports along the California Coast. CGC fishermen collect and share information about where, when, and what type of fish they catch, and use this information to adaptively manage fishing strategies to reduce bycatch of overfished groundfish stocks (i.e., yelloweye rockfish and cowcod) and increase catch of healthy target groundfish stocks (e.g., chilipepper rockfish, bocaccio, and petrale sole). CGC vessels participate in the Trawl Rationalization Program’s Shorebased Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) Program. Annual vessel limits are used in the Shorebased IFQ Program to restrict the consolidation of quota pounds among vessels in the fishery, particularly for constraining stocks and stock complexes (e.g., overfished stocks). Vessels may not purchase or fish quota pounds in excess of the annual vessel limit. For example, if a vessel owns 100 quota pounds of a stock, and the annual vessel limit is 500 quota pounds, the vessel can only purchase 400 additional quota pounds, and fish up to a total of 500 quota pounds. The annual vessel limit for stocks or stock complexes is calculated as a fixed percentage of the Shorebased IFQ allocation. The region where the CGC operates off the coast of California (south of the 40°10′ North latitude (N lat.) management line) is the only area where cowcod are encountered and managed as an individual IFQ species, and few trawl vessels operate in the area. The annual catch limit for cowcod is small due to its overfished stock status. Vessels have historically caught cowcod E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1
