Filetype[PDF-4.32 MB]

  • Description:
    The groundfish fisheries in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) [between 3 and 200 miles offshore] off Alaska are managed under the Fishery Management Plan for the Groundfish Fishery of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA FMP) and the Fishery Management Plan for the Groundfish Fishery of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Area (BSAl FMP). Both fishery management plans were prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management council (Council) under the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson Act). The GOA FMP was approved by the Secretary of Commerce and became effective in 1978, and the BSAI FMP became effective in 1982. Actions taken to amend fishery management plans or implement other regulations governing the groundfish fisheries must meet the requirements of Federal laws and regulations. In addition to the Magnuson Act, the most important of these are the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), Executive Order (E.0.) 12866, and the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA).
