  • Description:
    This environmental assessment was prepared to examine the environmental consequences of imposing additional constraints on commercial fisheries managed under the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands (BSAI) and Gulf of Alaska (GOA) Groundfish Fishery Management Plans (FMP). The purpose of additional restrictions is to minimize the potential adverse effects of the BSAI and GOA groundfish fisheries on Steller sea lions, a threatened species, and to foster the species's recovery. This assessment considers five alternatives: (1) No action; (2) Prohibiting groundfish trawling within 10 nautical miles (nm) of GOA and BSAI Steller sea lion rookeries year round; (3) Prohibiting groundfish trawling within 20 nm of GOA and BSAI Steller sea lion rookeries year round; (4) Prohibiting groundfish trawling within 10 nm of GOA and BSAI Steller sea lion rookeries from May 1-September 30 and within 20 nm from October 1 - April 30; and (5) Prohibiting groundfish trawling within 20 nm of GOA and BSAI Steller sea lion rookeries from May 1 - September 30 summer and within 60 nm from October 1 - April 30. NMFS' preferred alternative is Alternative 2.
