  • Description:
    "This is an analysis of the environmental, economic, and social effects of implementing a fishing capacity reduction program for the purse seine salmon fishery occurring in Southeast Alaska. The capacity reduction program would be implemented pursuant to authorizing legislation and applicable provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1861a (b-e)). Two alternatives have been considered: (1) no buyback program and (2) an industry funded buyback program. The environmental issues associated include: the biological environment including the water column and substrate; amount of fish removed, environmental impacts of the gear used to fish, and any incidental taking of a marine mammal, seabird, or prohibited species by the Southeast AK purse seine salmon fishery. Under the buyback program potential impact to the physical and biological environment would not change from the status quo because the amount of fish harvested and gear used to harvest fish would not change. Under the proposed program fewer total vessels would be harvesting fish, however each vessel participating would be using the same gear and would be spending more time at sea so fishing effort would not change"--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.
