    Summary. NOAA Fisheries publishes regulations to implement Amendment 93 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska. The regulations apply exclusively to the directed pollock trawl fisheries in the Central and Western Reporting Areas of the Gulf of Alaska. Amendment 93 establishes separate prohibited species catch, or PSC, limits in the Central and Western GOA for .   Pollock stocks in the US Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) are assessed separately from the smaller Gulf of Alaska stocks. The BSAI pollock fishery is a midwater trawl fishery, with trawlers of m in length making short trips and then offloading catches at shoreside plants. The fleet also includes large vessels that catch and process.

    Juneau, Alaska Main: Fax: 1. DRAFT Distribution Plan for funds appropriated to address the Gulf of Alaska Pacific cod disaster declaration. NOAA fisheries has allocated $24,, for the Pacific cod fishery disaster. Formed in , the Alaska Seafood Cooperative (AKSC), formerly the Best Use Cooperative, is a group of “catcher processor” fishing companies working to improve the management of Bering Sea flatfish and other non-pollock groundfish fisheries.

    • Stock composition of Chinook salmon bycatch in Gulf of Alaska trawl fisheries was relatively stable from , with British Columbia stocks dominating the bycatch, and West Coast U.S. stocks either similar to British Columbia stocks, or less, in most years (p. ). By Shannon Carroll. This month, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) wrapped up its final meeting of by pulling the plug on the Gulf of Alaska Trawl Bycatch Management an impasse in discussions between the State of Alaska and members of the trawl and processing sectors, the Council passed a motion tabling further action on the agenda item.

» Gulf of Alaska Trawl Bycatch Management Decem The Council received staff reports on three documents: a summary of the public comment scoping process that was conducted over the summer, a preliminary draft Social Impact Assessment, and a. The rockfish fisheries are conducted in Federal waters near Kodiak, Alaska, by trawl and longline vessels.

The Rockfish Program allocates harvest privileges to holders of License Limitation Program (LLP) groundfish licenses with a history of Central Gulf of Alaska (GOA) rockfish legal landings in either throughor the entry level trawl fishery in, or   Good management and risk-averse harvest levels have ensured that stocks in the Gulf of Alaska, the eastern Bering Sea and the Aleutian Islands are not being overfished.

Vessels targeting cod in the Gulf of Alaska use a number of methods: Trawl: Usually large vessels, including catcher-processors up to 90m long. The gear used includes many types. Gulf of Alaska cod have been in steep decline due to rising ocean temperatures.

Now, for the first time ever, federal fisheries managers are shutting down the lucrative fishery. BACKGROUND: Gulf of Alaska Pollock Fishery Alaska pollock is a mild whitefish that enjoys universal appeal, the flakey-textured fish that is served as fast food fish sandwiches, fish sticks, imitation crab meat in sushi, and the like.

Industry leaders claim that it is the largest food fishery in the world. Gulf of Alaska and inside waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Timing June-September. Description. The Southeast Coastal Monitoring (SECM) survey has assessed the status of the pelagic ecosystem in Southeast Alaska (SEAK) annually since using fish, zooplankton, and oceanographic samples.

Alaska pollock—also known as walleye pollock—is a key species in the Alaska groundfish complex and a target species for one of the world's largest fisheries. Pollock is a semipelagic schooling fish widely distributed in the North Pacific Ocean with largest concentrations in the eastern Bering Sea.

Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Fisheries Management Report #   The resultant Team consisted of two biologists from the National Marine Fisheries Service, Northwest and Alaska Fisheries Center2 (one of whom, the author, was appointed Team Leader), one biologist each from the Alaska (State) Department of Fish and Game and the International Pacific Halibut Commission, a fishery administrator from the NMFS.

-Membership consists of local trawlers delivering groundfish to shore-based processors in the Central and Western Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea*. We focus on harvesting the abundant groundfish resources in the GOA using sustainable fishing practices to ensure the preservation of our fishery while minimizing negative impacts on other fisheries.

Kristin Cieciel is a fisheries research biologist with the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Juneau Alaska. She has provided research support and survey logistics for trawl-based marine surveys on forage fish in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska for over 17 years and works mostly on research involving the abundance and ecology of juvenile.

This action is necessary to account for the actual halibut PSC use by the trawl deep-water and shallow-water species fishery categories from through J This action is consistent with the goals and objectives of the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska.

Gulf of Alaska Pollock The Gulf of Alaska pollock fishery is considerably smaller than the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands pollock fishery. Inapproximately 44% of the quota was landed in areawhich includes Unalaska (Figure 2). NMFS data indicates that the area to the southeast of Unalaska Island experiences significant fishing pressure.

Trawl gear is no longer legal for fishing herring in Alaska with three exceptions. Trawl gear is legal, but very rarely used, for fishing food/bait herring in Prince William Sound. The type of trawl used in Prince William Sound has been a pair trawl, similar to a purse seine.

Rockfish possession and landing requirements for the Eastern Gulf of Alaska area All fishermen participating in the beam trawl fishery for shrimp in Southeast Alaska must retain, weigh, and report all demersal shelf rockfish by species on the fish ticket [5 AAC (b)].

Beam trawl permit. the overall management structure of Gulf of Alaska trawl fisheries. Individual fishing quota (IFQ) or catch share programs which allocate bycatch and/or target species have emerged as a means to provide the trawl fleet with the “tools” to reduce bycatch. Given the emphasis to date on catch.

The trawl groundfish fisheries in the GOA include fisheries for pollock, sablefish, several rockfish species, numerous flatfish species, Pacific cod, and other groundfish. Trawl gear captures groundfish by towing a net above or along the ocean floor.

Opinion: Math Just Doesn’t Add Up in Gulf of Alaska Trawl Fisheries. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council just voted to advise the Fisheries Service to increase the observer fee, a fee collected from groundfish vessels and processors t hat pay s for m onitoring the fisheries.

Oceana supported the fee increase. The existing fee wasn’t generating enough money f or the program to. The other fisheries listed in the report are the California set and drift gillnet fisheries, the northeast United States and the mid-Atlantic bottom trawl fishery, the Gulf of Alaska flatfish.The annual Alaska Longline Survey will take place as planned," according to NOAA.

Paine said the cancellations affect UCB members immediately, with the loss of charter funding, since their fishing vessels carry the scientists overseeing the trawl surveys.
