By-catch rates in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands joint venture groundfish fishery, 1986-88

  • Description:
    This report provides detailed groundfish and prohibited species by-catch rates for the joint venture groundfish fishery in the Bering Sea. The rates are reported by subarea and target fishery on an annual and quarterly basis for the years 1986, 1987, and 1988. These rates were produced from in-season weekly catch data that had been collected by the individual processing vessels and by the U.S. observers stationed aboard these vessels. The 1986 and 1987 data each cover the period January 1 through December 31; the 1988 data cover the period January 1 through July 9. Groundfish catch data are not reported for Subarea 550 (outside the Exclusive Economic Zone) and so were unavailable for this report. Each vessel’s target fishery was determined, by week and subarea, based on the species composition of its catch. The method used to determine target fishery was taken from proposed Amendment 12 Alternative 3 Option A to the Fishery Management Plan for the Groundfish Fishery of the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands.
