  • Description:
    This Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes the potential impacts of issuing an exempted fishing permit (EPP) to allow for the development and testing of hook-and-line gear for harvesting rockfish species in the Southeast Outside District (SEO) of the Gulf of Alaska. The purpose of the EPP is to provide exemptions from: (1) the halibut prohibited species catch limit, (2) individual fishing quota retention requirements, (3) certain fishery closures, and ( 4) maximum retainable amounts of bycatch in the rockfish fishery. These exemptions will allow the project to be conducted efficiently and without impacting other hook-and-line fisheries. The project is intended to improve the harvest of rockfish species in the SEO, a currently underutilized species group. The analysis found no significant impacts on the human environment for this action.
