New! Handout materials available for the upcoming public hearings on the “Five-Year Review of the Groundfish Trawl Catch Share Program”

The Pacific Fishery Management Council is undertaking a review of its:

  • trawl catch share program (Amendment 20 to the groundfish fishery management plan [FMP]), and
  • intersector allocations (including Amendment 21 to the groundfish FMP).

Both the catch share program and intersector allocations went into place at the start of 2011 and review is required five years after implementation.

New! Hearing handout materials have been added on the Council’s “Groundfish Five-Year Review Trawl Catch Share Program” webpage.
