  • Description:
    Amendment 10 to the Scallop FMP proposes modifying the existing gear restriction endorsement on 2 of the 9 licenses under the Federal License Limitation Program (LLP). Four alternatives are examined: Alternative 1: Status Quo, maintain the current 6-foot dredge gear restriction endorsement; Alternative 2: modify the current 6-foot dredge restriction to allow vessels with the current endorsement to fish in Federal waters, outside of Cook Inlet, with a maximum of two 8-foot dredges (or two dredges with a combined width of no more than 16 feet); Alternative 3: modify the current 6-foot dredge restriction to allow vessels with the current endorsement to fish in Federal waters, outside of Cook Inlet, with a maximum of two 10-foot dredges (or two dredges with a combined width of no more than 20 feet); Alternative 4: eliminate the current 6-foot dredge restriction such that there are no gear restrictions on LLP licenses. The impacts of the alternatives upon habitat, marine mammals, seabirds, other fishery participants, and other potentially impacted entities are discussed in the analysis.
