  • Description:
    "NMFS will specify the total allowable catch (TAC) for the 2010-11 fishing year as 254,050 lb of Deep 7 bottomfish in the main Hawaiian Islands (MHI) bottomfish fishery. The MHI Deep 7 bottomfish fishery opens on September 1 ofeach year and ends on August 31 ofthe following calendar year. Progress towards the T AC is monitored by NMFS based on reported commercial landings from the MHI and when the TAC is reached, both the commercial and non commercial MHI bottomfish fishery will be closed for the remainder of the fishing year. The TAC is an annual specification required pursuant to federal regulations at 50 CFR 665.72 and provides for the long-term sustainability of bottom fish stocks of the Hawaiian Islands Archipelago. The Western Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) based its recommendation for the TAC on a bottomfish stock assessment prepared in 2009 by the NMFS Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), and following coordination with its Scientific and Statistical Committee and interested members of the public during the 148th Council meeting held in June-July 2010. The TAC for the 2010-11 fishing year is the same TAC level that was specified for the previous year and is associated with no risk of overfishing of Hawaiian archipelagic bottomfish stocks, and a risk of localized depletion ofthe MHI management subarea bottomfish stocks of less than 38 percent. The TAC will not result in a change in fishing gear or other changes to the conduct of the fishery that could cause significant environmental impacts"--Cover letter; Portfolio comprised of three related PDF documents digitized and organized by: NOAA Office of Program Planning and Integration (PPI) National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) staff.
