Document Number: 2018-05919
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-03-23
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
This rulemaking proposes allocations of annual catch entitlements to groundfish sectors for the 2018 fishing year and also proposes a new regulatory exemption for sectors. The action is necessary because sectors must receive allocations in order to operate. This action is intended to ensure sector allocations are based on the best scientific information available and help achieve optimum yield for the fishery.
