                               EXPLANATION

    The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and 
permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive 
departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Code is divided 
into 50 titles which represent broad areas subject to Federal 
regulation. Each title is divided into chapters which usually bear the 
name of the issuing agency. Each chapter is further subdivided into 
parts covering specific regulatory areas.
    Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year 
and issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows:

Title 1 through Title 16.................................as of January 1
Title 17 through Title 27..................................as of April 1
Title 28 through Title 41...................................as of July 1
Title 42 through Title 50................................as of October 1

    The appropriate revision date is printed on the cover of each 
volume.

LEGAL STATUS

    The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially 
noticed (44 U.S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie 
evidence of the text of the original documents (44 U.S.C. 1510).

HOW TO USE THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS

    The Code of Federal Regulations is kept up to date by the individual 
issues of the Federal Register. These two publications must be used 
together to determine the latest version of any given rule.
    To determine whether a Code volume has been amended since its 
revision date (in this case, October 1, 2011), consult the ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected (LSA),'' which is issued monthly, and the ``Cumulative 
List of Parts Affected,'' which appears in the Reader Aids section of 
the daily Federal Register. These two lists will identify the Federal 
Register page number of the latest amendment of any given rule.

EFFECTIVE AND EXPIRATION DATES

    Each volume of the Code contains amendments published in the Federal 
Register since the last revision of that volume of the Code. Source 
citations for the regulations are referred to by volume number and page 
number of the Federal Register and date of publication. Publication 
dates and effective dates are usually not the same and care must be 
exercised by the user in determining the actual effective date. In 
instances where the effective date is beyond the cut-off date for the 
Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future effective date. In 
those instances where a regulation published in the Federal Register 
states a date certain for expiration, an appropriate note will be 
inserted following the text.

OMB CONTROL NUMBERS

    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511) requires 
Federal agencies to display an OMB control number with their information 
collection request.

[[Page vi]]

Many agencies have begun publishing numerous OMB control numbers as 
amendments to existing regulations in the CFR. These OMB numbers are 
placed as close as possible to the applicable recordkeeping or reporting 
requirements.

OBSOLETE PROVISIONS

    Provisions that become obsolete before the revision date stated on 
the cover of each volume are not carried. Code users may find the text 
of provisions in effect on a given date in the past by using the 
appropriate numerical list of sections affected. For the period before 
April 1, 2001, consult either the List of CFR Sections Affected, 1949-
1963, 1964-1972, 1973-1985, or 1986-2000, published in eleven separate 
volumes. For the period beginning April 1, 2001, a ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected'' is published at the end of each CFR volume.

``[RESERVED]'' TERMINOLOGY

    The term ``[Reserved]'' is used as a place holder within the Code of 
Federal Regulations. An agency may add regulatory information at a 
``[Reserved]'' location at any time. Occasionally ``[Reserved]'' is used 
editorially to indicate that a portion of the CFR was left vacant and 
not accidentally dropped due to a printing or computer error.

INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE

    What is incorporation by reference? Incorporation by reference was 
established by statute and allows Federal agencies to meet the 
requirement to publish regulations in the Federal Register by referring 
to materials already published elsewhere. For an incorporation to be 
valid, the Director of the Federal Register must approve it. The legal 
effect of incorporation by reference is that the material is treated as 
if it were published in full in the Federal Register (5 U.S.C. 552(a)). 
This material, like any other properly issued regulation, has the force 
of law.
    What is a proper incorporation by reference? The Director of the 
Federal Register will approve an incorporation by reference only when 
the requirements of 1 CFR part 51 are met. Some of the elements on which 
approval is based are:
    (a) The incorporation will substantially reduce the volume of 
material published in the Federal Register.
    (b) The matter incorporated is in fact available to the extent 
necessary to afford fairness and uniformity in the administrative 
process.
    (c) The incorporating document is drafted and submitted for 
publication in accordance with 1 CFR part 51.
    What if the material incorporated by reference cannot be found? If 
you have any problem locating or obtaining a copy of material listed as 
an approved incorporation by reference, please contact the agency that 
issued the regulation containing that incorporation. If, after 
contacting the agency, you find the material is not available, please 
notify the Director of the Federal Register, National Archives and 
Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001, 
or call 202-741-6010.

CFR INDEXES AND TABULAR GUIDES

    A subject index to the Code of Federal Regulations is contained in a 
separate volume, revised annually as of January 1, entitled CFR Index 
and Finding Aids. This volume contains the Parallel Table of Authorities 
and Rules. A list of CFR titles, chapters, subchapters, and parts and an 
alphabetical list of agencies publishing in the CFR are also included in 
this volume.
    An index to the text of ``Title 3--The President'' is carried within 
that volume.

[[Page vii]]

    The Federal Register Index is issued monthly in cumulative form. 
This index is based on a consolidation of the ``Contents'' entries in 
the daily Federal Register.
    A List of CFR Sections Affected (LSA) is published monthly, keyed to 
the revision dates of the 50 CFR titles.

REPUBLICATION OF MATERIAL

    There are no restrictions on the republication of material appearing 
in the Code of Federal Regulations.

                Subpart C_West Coast Groundfish Fisheries

    Source: 75 FR 60897, Oct. 1, 2010, unless otherwise noted.



Sec. 660.10  Purpose and scope.

    (a) Subparts C through G of this part implement the Pacific Coast 
Groundfish Fishery Management Plan (PCGFMP) developed by the Pacific 
Fishery Management Council. Subparts C through G govern fishing vessels 
of the U.S. in the EEZ off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and 
California. All weights are in round weight or round-weight equivalents, 
unless specified otherwise.
    (b) Any person fishing subject to subparts C through G of this part 
is bound by the international boundaries described in this section, 
notwithstanding any dispute or negotiation between the U.S. and any 
neighboring country regarding their respective jurisdictions, until such 
time as new boundaries are established or recognized by the U.S.



Sec. 660.11  General definitions.

    These definitions are specific to the fisheries covered in subparts 
C through G of this part.
    Acceptable Biological Catch (ABC) means a harvest specification that 
is set below the overfishing limit to account for scientific uncertainty 
in the estimate of OFL, and other scientific uncertainty.
    Active sampling unit means the portion of the groundfish fleet in 
which an observer coverage plan is being applied.
    Address of Record means the business address a person has provided 
to NMFS for NMFS use in providing notice of agency actions and other 
business with that person.
    Allocation. (See Sec. 600.10 of this chapter)

[[Page 8]]

    Annual Catch Limit (ACL) is a harvest specification set equal to or 
below the ABC threshold in consideration of conservation objectives, 
socioeconomic concerns, management uncertainty and other factors. The 
ACL is a harvest limit that includes all sources of fishing-related 
mortality including landings, discard mortality, research catches, and 
catches in exempted fishing permit activities. Sector-specific annual 
catch limits can be specified, especially in cases where a sector has a 
formal, long-term allocation of the harvestable surplus of a stock or 
stock complex.
    Annual Catch Target (ACT) is a management target set below the 
annual catch limit and may be used as an accountability measure in cases 
where there is great uncertainty in inseason catch monitoring to ensure 
against exceeding an annual catch limit. Since the annual catch target 
is a target and not a limit it can be used in lieu of harvest guidelines 
or strategically to accomplish other management objectives. Sector-
specific annual catch targets can also be specified to accomplish 
management objectives.
    Base permit, with respect to a limited entry permit stacking 
program, means a limited entry permit described at Sec. 
660.25(b)(3)(i), subpart C registered for use with a vessel that meets 
the permit length endorsement requirements appropriate to that vessel, 
as described at Sec. 660.25(b)(3)(iii), subpart C.
    Biennial fishing period means a 24-month period beginning at 0001 
local time on January 1 and ending at 2400 local time on December 31 of 
the subsequent year.
    B MSY means the biomass level that produces maximum sustainable 
yield (MSY), as stated in the PCGFMP at Section 4.3.
    Calendar day means the day beginning at 0001 hours local time and 
continuing for 24 consecutive hours.
    Calendar year. (see ``fishing year'')
    Catch, take, harvest. (See Sec. 600.10 of this chapter)
    Catch monitor means an individual that is certified by NMFS, is 
deployed to a first receiver, and whose primary duties include: 
monitoring and verification of the sorting of fish relative to Federal 
requirements defined in Sec. 660.60(h)(6); documentation of the 
weighing of such fish relative to the requirements of Sec. 660.13(b); 
and verification of first receivers' reporting relative to the 
requirements defined in Sec. 660.113(b)(4).
    Change in partnership or corporation means the addition of a new 
shareholder or partner to the corporate or partnership membership. This 
definition of a ``change'' will apply to any person added to the 
corporate or partnership membership since November 1, 2000, including 
any family member of an existing shareholder or partner. A change in 
membership is not considered to have occurred if a member dies or 
becomes legally incapacitated and a trustee is appointed to act on his 
behalf, nor if the ownership of shares among existing members changes, 
nor if a member leaves the corporation or partnership and is not 
replaced. Changes in the ownership of publicly held stock will not be 
deemed changes in ownership of the corporation.
    Closure or closed means, when referring to closure of a fishery or a 
closed fishery, that taking and retaining, possessing, or landing the 
particular species or species group covered by the fishing closure is 
prohibited. Unless otherwise announced in the Federal Register or 
authorized in this subpart, offloading must begin before the closure 
time.
    Commercial fishing means:
    (1) Fishing by a person who possesses a commercial fishing license 
or is required by law to possess such license issued by one of the 
states or the Federal Government as a prerequisite to taking, landing 
and/or sale of fish; or
    (2) Fishing that results in or can be reasonably expected to result 
in sale, barter, trade or other disposition of fish for other than 
personal consumption.
    Commercial harvest guideline means the fishery harvest guideline 
minus the estimated recreational catch. Limited entry and open access 
allocations are derived from the commercial harvest guideline.
    Conservation area(s) means either a Groundfish Conservation Area 
(GCA), an Essential Fish Habitat Conservation Area (EFHCA), or both.

[[Page 9]]

    (1) Groundfish Conservation Area or GCA means a geographic area 
defined by coordinates expressed in degrees latitude and longitude, 
wherein fishing by a particular gear type or types may be prohibited. 
GCAs are created and enforced for the purpose of contributing to the 
rebuilding of overfished West Coast groundfish species. Regulations at 
Sec. 660.70, Subpart C define coordinates for these polygonal GCAs: 
Yelloweye Rockfish Conservation Areas, Cowcod Conservation Areas, waters 
encircling the Farallon Islands, and waters encircling the Cordell 
Banks. GCAs also include Rockfish Conservation Areas or RCAs, which are 
areas closed to fishing by particular gear types, bounded by lines 
approximating particular depth contours. RCA boundaries may and do 
change seasonally according to the conservation needs of the different 
overfished species. Regulations at Sec. Sec. 660.70 through 660.74, 
subpart C define RCA boundary lines with latitude/longitude coordinates; 
regulations at Tables 1 (North) and 1 (South) of subpart D, Tables 2 
(North) and 2 (South) of subpart E, and Tables 3 (North) and 3 (South) 
of subpart F set RCA seasonal boundaries. Fishing prohibitions 
associated with GCAs are in addition to those associated with EFH 
Conservation Areas.
    (2) Essential Fish Habitat Conservation Area or EFHCA means a 
geographic area defined by coordinates expressed in degrees latitude and 
longitude, wherein fishing by a particular gear type or types may be 
prohibited. EFHCAs are created and enforced for the purpose of 
contributing to the protection of West Coast groundfish essential fish 
habitat. Regulations at Sec. Sec. 660.75, through 660.79, Subpart C 
define EFHCA boundary lines with latitude/longitude coordinates. Fishing 
prohibitions associated with EFHCAs, which are found at Sec. 660.12, 
subpart C, are in addition to those associated with GCAs.
    Continuous transiting or transit through means that a fishing vessel 
crosses a groundfish conservation area or EFH conservation area on a 
constant heading, along a continuous straight line course, while making 
way by means of a source of power at all times, other than drifting by 
means of the prevailing water current or weather conditions.
    Corporation means a legal, business entity, including incorporated 
(INC) and limited liability corporations (LLC).
    Council means the Pacific Fishery Management Council, including its 
Groundfish Management Team (GMT), Scientific and Statistical Committee 
(SSC), Groundfish Advisory Subpanel (GAP), and any other advisory body 
established by the Council.
    Date of landing means the date on which the transfer of fish or 
offloading of fish from any vessel to a processor or other first 
receiver begins.
    Direct financial interest means any source of income to or capital 
investment or other interest held by an individual, partnership, or 
corporation or an individual's spouse, immediate family member or parent 
that could be influenced by performance or non-performance of observer 
or catch monitor duties.
    Electronic fish ticket means a software program or data files 
meeting data export specifications approved by NMFS that is used to send 
landing data to the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission. 
Electronic fish tickets are used to collect information similar to the 
information required in state fish receiving tickets or landing 
receipts, but do not replace or change any state requirements.
    Electronic Monitoring System or EMS means a data collection tool 
that uses a software operating system connected to an assortment of 
electronic components, including video recorders, to create a collection 
of data on vessel activities.
    Endorsement means an additional specification affixed to the limited 
entry permit that further restricts fishery participation or further 
specifies a harvest privilege, and is non-severable from a limited entry 
permit.
    Entity. (See ``Person'')
    Essential Fish Habitat or EFH. (See Sec. 600.10 of this chapter)
    First Receiver means a person who receives, purchases, or takes 
custody, control, or possession of catch onshore directly from a vessel.
    Fish. (See Sec. 600.10 of this chapter)

[[Page 10]]

    Fishery harvest guideline means the harvest guideline or quota after 
subtracting from the ACL or ACT when specified, any allocation for the 
Pacific Coast treaty Indian Tribes, projected research catch, deductions 
for fishing mortality in non-groundfish fisheries, as necessary, and 
set-asides for EFPs.
    Fishery management area means the EEZ off the coasts of Washington, 
Oregon, and California between 3 and 200 nm offshore, and bounded on the 
north by the Provisional International Boundary between the U.S. and 
Canada, and bounded on the south by the International Boundary between 
the U.S. and Mexico. The inner boundary of the fishery management area 
is a line coterminous with the seaward boundaries of the States of 
Washington, Oregon, and California (the ``3-mile limit''). The outer 
boundary of the fishery management area is a line drawn in such a manner 
that each point on it is 200 nm from the baseline from which the 
territorial sea is measured, or is a provisional or permanent 
international boundary between the U.S. and Canada or Mexico. All 
groundfish possessed between 0-200 nm offshore or landed in Washington, 
Oregon, or California are presumed to have been taken and retained from 
the EEZ, unless otherwise demonstrated by the person in possession of 
those fish.

from which one or more leaders with one or more lures or baited hooks 
are pulled through the water while a vessel is making way.
    (iv) Troll gear means a lure or jig towed behind a vessel via a 
fishing line. Troll gear is used in commercial and recreational 
fisheries.
    (7) Mesh size means the opening between opposing knots. Minimum mesh

than trawl gear.
    (9) Spear means a sharp, pointed, or barbed instrument on a shaft.
    (10) Trap or pot See Sec. 600.10 of this chapter, definition of 
``trap''. These terms are used as interchangeable synonyms.
    (11) Trawl gear means a cone or funnel-shaped net that is towed 
through the water, and can include a pair trawl that towed 
simultaneously by two boats. For the purpose of this definition, trawl 
gear includes groundfish and non-groundfish trawl. See definitions for 
groundfish trawl and non-groundfish trawls (previously called ``exempted 
trawl'').
    (i) Bottom trawl means a trawl in which the otter boards or the 
footrope of the net are in contact with the seabed. It includes demersal 
seine gear, and pair trawls fished on the bottom. Any trawl not meeting 
the requirements for a midwater trawl in Sec. 660.130(b), subpart D is 
a bottom trawl.
    (A) Beam trawl gear means a type of trawl gear in which a beam is 
used to hold the trawl open during fishing. Otter boards or doors are 
not used.
    (B) Large footrope trawl gear means a bottom trawl gear with a 
footrope diameter larger than 8 inches (20 cm,) and no larger than 19 
inches (48 cm) including any rollers, bobbins, or other material 
encircling or tied along the length of the footrope.
    (C) Small footrope trawl gear means a bottom trawl gear with a 
footrope diameter of 8 inches (20 cm) or smaller, including any rollers, 
bobbins, or other material encircling or tied along the length of the 
footrope. Selective flatfish trawl gear that meets the gear component 
requirements in Sec. 660.130(b), subpart D is a type of small footrope 
trawl gear.
    (ii) Midwater (pelagic or off-bottom) trawl means a trawl in which 
the otter boards and footrope of the net remain above the seabed. It 
includes pair trawls if fished in midwater. A midwater trawl has no

devices are commonly used to either bounce or pivot over seabed 
obstructions, in order to prevent the trawl footrope and net from 
snagging on the seabed.
    (I) Single-walled codend means a codend constructed of a single wall 
of webbing knitted with single or double-bar mesh.

food production and recreational opportunities, and, taking into account 
the protection of marine ecosystems, is prescribed as such on the basis 
of the MSY from the fishery, as reduced by any relevant economic, 
social, or ecological factor; and, in the case of an overfished fishery, 
provides for rebuilding to a level consistent with producing the MSY in 
such fishery. OY may be expressed numerically (as a harvest guideline, 
quota, or other specification) or non-numerically.
    Overage means the amount of fish harvested by a vessel in excess of:
    (1) The applicable trip limit for any fishery to which a trip limit

[[Page 17]]

mean heading and gutting unless additional preparation is done. (A 
vessel that is 75-ft (23-m) or less LOA that harvests whiting and, in 
addition to heading and gutting, cuts the tail off and freezes the 
whiting, is not considered to be a catcher/processor nor is it 
considered to be processing fish (See Sec. 660.112(b)(1)(xii)(A))).

pound units or smaller; for sale or distribution into a wholesale or 
retail market.
    (ii) The purchase and redistribution in to a wholesale or retail 
market of live groundfish from a harvesting vessel.
    Processor means a person, vessel, or facility that engages in 
commercial processing; or receives live groundfish directly from a 
fishing vessel for retail sale without further processing. (Also see the 
definition for processors at Sec. 660.140, which defines processor for 
the purposes of qualifying for initial issuance of QS in the Shorebased 
IFQ Program.)
    (1) For the purposes of economic data collection or EDC in the 
Shorebased IFQ Program, shorebased processor means a person that engages 
in commercial processing, that is an operation working on U.S. soil or 
permanently fixed to land, that takes delivery of fish that has not been 
subject to at-sea processing or shorebased processing; and that 
thereafter engages that particular fish in shorebased processing; and 
excludes retailers, such as grocery stores and markets, which receive 
whole or headed and gutted fish that are then filleted and packaged for 
retail sale. At Sec. 660.114(b), trawl fishery--economic data 
collection program, the definition of processor is further refined to 
describe which shorebased processors are required to submit their 
economic data collection forms.

through G of this part, trawl fishery means any fishery using trawl gear 
as defined under the definition of fishing gear in this section.
    Trip. (See Sec. 600.10 of this chapter)
    Trip limits. Trip limits are used in the commercial fishery to 
specify the maximum amount of a fish species or species group that may 
legally be taken and retained, possessed, or landed, per vessel, per 
fishing trip, or cumulatively per unit of time, or the number of 
landings that may be made from a vessel in a given period of time, as 
follows:
    (1) A per trip limit is the total allowable amount of a groundfish 
species or species group, by weight, or by percentage of weight of legal 
fish on board, that may be taken and retained, possessed, or landed per

trip limits may not be accumulated during multiple week trips. If a 
calendar week falls within two different months or two different 
cumulative limit periods, a vessel is not entitled to two separate 
weekly limits during that week.
    (4) A cumulative trip limit is the maximum amount of a groundfish 
species or species group that may be taken and retained, possessed, or 
landed per vessel in a specified period of time without a limit on the 
number of landings or trips, unless otherwise specified. The cumulative 
trip limit periods for limited entry and open access fisheries, which 
start at 0001 hours local time and end at 2400 hours local time, are as 
follows, unless otherwise specified:
    (i) The 2-month or ``major'' cumulative limit periods are: January

Sec. 660.13  Recordkeeping and reporting.

    (a) This subpart recognizes that catch and effort data necessary for 
implementing the PCGFMP are collected by the States of Washington, 
Oregon, and California under existing state data collection 
requirements.
    (b) Any person who is required to do so by the applicable state law 
must make and/or file, retain, or make available any and all reports 
(i.e., logbooks, state landing receipts, etc.) of groundfish harvests 
and landings containing all data, and in the exact manner, required by 
the applicable state law.
    (c) Any person landing groundfish must retain on board the vessel 
from which groundfish is landed, and provide to an authorized officer 
upon request, copies of any and all reports of groundfish landings 
containing all data, and in the exact manner, required by the applicable 
state law throughout the cumulative limit period during which a landing 
occurred and for 15 days thereafter.
    (d) Declaration reporting requirements--(1) Declaration reports for 
vessels registered to limited entry permits. The operator of any vessel 
registered to a limited entry permit must provide NMFS OLE with a 
declaration report, as specified at paragraph (d)(5)(iv) of this 
section, before the vessel leaves port on a trip in which the vessel is 
used to fish in U.S. ocean waters between 0 and 200 nm offshore of 
Washington, Oregon, or California.
    (2) Declaration reports for all vessels using non-groundfish trawl 
gear. The operator of any vessel that is not registered to a limited 
entry permit and which uses non-groundfish trawl gear to fish in the EEZ 
(3-200 nm offshore),

[[Page 22]]

must provide NMFS OLE with a declaration report, as specified at 
paragraph (d)(5)(iv) of this section, before the vessel leaves port to 
fish in the EEZ.
    (3) Declaration reports for open access vessels using non trawl gear 
(all types of open access gear other than non-groundfish trawl gear). 
The operator of any vessel that is not registered to a limited entry 
permit, must provide NMFS with a declaration report, as specified at 
paragraph (d)(5)(iv) of this section, before the vessel leaves port on a 
trip in which the vessel is used to take and retain or possess 
groundfish in the EEZ or land groundfish taken in the EEZ.
    (4) Declaration reports for tribal vessels using trawl gear. The 
operator of any tribal vessel using trawl gear must provide NMFS with a 
declaration report, as specified at paragraph (d)(5)(iv) of this 
section, before the vessel leaves port on a trip in which fishing occurs 
within the trawl RCA.
    (5) Declaration reports. (i) The operator of a vessel specified in 
paragraphs (d)(1), (d)(2), and (d)(3) of this section must provide a 
declaration report to NMFS OLE prior to leaving port on the first trip 
in which the vessel meets the requirement specified at Sec. 660.14(b) 
to have a VMS.
    (ii) The vessel operator must send a new declaration report before 
leaving port on a trip in which a gear type that is different from the 
gear type most recently declared for the vessel will be used. A 
declaration report will be valid until another declaration report 
revising the existing gear declaration is received by NMFS OLE.
    (iii) During the period of time that a vessel has a valid 
declaration report on file with NMFS OLE, it cannot fish with a gear 
other than a gear type declared by the vessel.
    (iv) Declaration reports will include: The vessel name and/or 
identification number, and gear type (as defined in paragraph 
(d)(5)(iv)(A) of this section). Upon receipt of a declaration report, 
NMFS will provide a confirmation code or receipt to confirm that a valid 
declaration report was received for the vessel. Retention of the 
confirmation code or receipt to verify that a valid declaration report 
was filed and the declaration requirement was met is the responsibility 
of the vessel owner or operator. Vessels using nontrawl gear may declare 
more than one gear type with the exception of vessels participating in 
the Shorebased IFQ Program (i.e. gear switching), however, vessels using 
trawl gear may only declare one of the trawl gear types listed in 
paragraph (d)(5)(iv)(A) of this section on any trip and may not declare 
nontrawl gear on the same trip in which trawl gear is declared.

Sec. 660.14  Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) requirements.

    (a) What is a VMS? A VMS consists of a NMFS OLE type-approved mobile 
transceiver unit that automatically determines the vessel's position and 
transmits it to a NMFS OLE type-approved communications service 
provider. The communications service provider receives the transmission 
and relays it to NMFS OLE.
    (b) Who is Required to Have a VMS? The following vessels are 
required to install a NMFS OLE type-approved mobile transceiver unit and 
to arrange for a NMFS OLE type-approved communications service provider 
to receive and relay transmissions to NMFS OLE prior to fishing:
    (1) Any vessel registered for use with a limited entry ``A'' 
endorsed permit (i.e., not an MS permit) that fishes in state or Federal 
waters seaward of the baseline from which the territorial sea is 
measured off the States of Washington, Oregon or California (0-200 nm 
offshore).
    (2) Any vessel that uses non-groundfish trawl gear to fish in the 
EEZ.
    (3) Any vessel that uses open access gear to take and retain, or 
possess groundfish in the EEZ or land groundfish taken in the EEZ.
    (c) How are Mobile Transceiver Units and Communications Service 
Providers Approved by NMFS OLE?
    (1) NMFS OLE will publish type-approval specifications for VMS 
components in the Federal Register or notify the public through other 
appropriate media.
    (2) Mobile transceiver unit manufacturers or communication service 
providers will submit products or services to NMFS OLE for evaluation 
based on the published specifications.
    (3) NMFS OLE may publish a list of NMFS OLE type-approved mobile 
transceiver units and communication service providers for the Pacific 
Coast groundfish fishery in the Federal Register or notify the public 
through other appropriate media. As necessary, NMFS OLE may publish 
amendments to the list of type-approved mobile transceiver units and 
communication service providers in the Federal Register or through other 
appropriate media. A list of VMS transceivers that have been type-
approved by NMFS OLE may be mailed to the permit owner's address of 
record. NMFS will bear no responsibility if a notification is sent to 
the address of record and is not received because the applicant's actual 
address has changed without notification to NMFS, as required at Sec. 
660.25(b)(4)(i)(B).
    (d) What are the Vessel Owner's Responsibilities? If you are a 
vessel owner that must participate in the VMS program, you or the vessel 
operator must:
    (1) Obtain a NMFS OLE type-approved mobile transceiver unit and have 
it installed on board your vessel in accordance with the instructions 
provided by NMFS OLE. You may obtain a copy of the VMS installation and 
operation instructions from the NMFS OLE Northwest, VMS Program Manager 
upon request at 7600 Sand Point Way NE., Seattle, WA 98115-6349, phone: 
(206) 526-6133.
    (2) Activate the mobile transceiver unit, submit an activation 
report at least 72 hours prior to leaving port on a trip in which VMS is 
required, and receive confirmation from NMFS OLE that the VMS 
transmissions are being received before participating in a fishery 
requiring the VMS. Instructions for submitting an activation report may 
be obtained from the NMFS, Northwest OLE VMS Program Manager upon 
request at 7600 Sand Point Way NE., Seattle, WA 98115-6349, phone: (206) 
526-6133. An activation report must again be submitted to NMFS OLE 
following reinstallation of a mobile transceiver unit or change in 
service provider before the vessel may be used to fish in a fishery 
requiring the VMS.
    (i) Activation reports. If you are a vessel owner who must use VMS 
and you are activating a VMS transceiver unit for the first time or 
reactivating a VMS transceiver unit following a reinstallation of a 
mobile transceiver unit or change in service provider, you must fax NMFS 
OLE an activation report that includes: Vessel name; vessel

[[Page 24]]

owner's name, address and telephone number, vessel operator's name, 
address and telephone number, USCG vessel documentation number/state 
registration number; if applicable, the groundfish permit number the 
vessel is registered to; VMS transceiver unit manufacturer; VMS 
communications service provider; VMS transceiver identification; 
identifying if the unit is the primary or backup; and a statement signed 
and dated by the vessel owner confirming compliance with the 
installation procedures provided by NMFS OLE.
    (ii) Transferring ownership of VMS unit. Ownership of the VMS 
transceiver unit may be transferred from one vessel owner to another 
vessel owner if all of the following documents are provided to NMFS OLE: 
A new activation report, which identifies that the transceiver unit was 
previously registered to another vessel; a notarized bill of sale 
showing proof of ownership of the VMS transceiver unit; documentation 
from the communications service provider showing proof that the service 
agreement for the previous vessel was terminated and that a service 
agreement was established for the new vessel.
    (3) Transceiver unit operation. Operate and maintain the mobile 
transceiver unit in good working order continuously, 24 hours a day 
throughout the fishing year, unless such vessel is exempted under 
paragraph (d)(4) of this section. The mobile transceiver unit must 
transmit a signal accurately indicating the vessel's position at least 
once every hour, 24 hours a day, throughout the year unless a valid 
exemption report, as described in paragraph (b)(4) of this section, has 
been received by NMFS OLE. Less frequent position reporting at least 
once every four hours is authorized when a vessel remains in port for an 
extended period of time, but the mobile transceiver unit must remain in 
continuous operation at all times unless the vessel is exempted under 
this section.
    (4) VMS exemptions. A vessel that is required to operate and 
maintain the mobile transceiver unit continuously 24 hours a day 
throughout the fishing year may be exempted from this requirement if a 
valid exemption report, as described at paragraph (d)(4)(vii) of this 
section, is received by NMFS OLE and the vessel is in compliance with 
all conditions and requirements of the VMS exemption identified in this 
section and specified in the exemption report.
    (i) Haul out exemption. When it is anticipated that a vessel will be 
continuously out of the water for more than 7 consecutive days and a 
valid exemption report has been received by NMFS OLE, electrical power 
to the VMS mobile transceiver unit may be removed and transmissions may 
be discontinued. Under this exemption, VMS transmissions can be 
discontinued from the time the vessel is removed from the water until 
the time that the vessel is placed back in the water.
    (ii) Outside areas exemption. When the vessel will be operating 
seaward of the EEZ off Washington, Oregon, or California continuously 
for more than 7 consecutive days and a valid exemption report has been 
received by NMFS OLE, the VMS mobile transceiver unit transmissions may 
be reduced or discontinued from the time the vessel leaves the EEZ off 
the coasts of Washington, Oregon or California until the time that the 
vessel re-enters the EEZ off the coasts of Washington, Oregon or 
California. Under this exemption, the vessel owner or operator can 
request that NMFS OLE reduce or discontinue the VMS transmissions after 
receipt of an exemption report, if the vessel is equipped with a VMS 
transceiver unit that NMFS OLE has approved for this exemption.
    (iii) Permit transfer exemption. If the limited entry permit has 
been transferred from a vessel (for the purposes of this section, this 
includes permits placed into ``unidentified'' status) the vessel may be 
exempted from VMS requirements providing the vessel is not used to fish 
in state or Federal waters seaward of the baseline from which the 
territorial sea is measured off the States of Washington, Oregon or 
California (0-200 nm offshore) for the remainder of the fishing year. If 
the vessel is used to fish in this area for any species of fish at any 
time during the remaining portion of the fishing year without being 
registered to a limited entry permit, the vessel is required to have and 
use VMS.

[[Page 25]]

    (iv) Long-term departure exemption. A vessel participating in the 
open access fishery that is required to have VMS under paragraph (b)(3) 
of this section may be exempted from VMS provisions after the end of the 
fishing year in which it fished in the open access fishery, providing 
the vessel submits a completed exemption report signed by the vessel 
owner that includes a statement signed by the vessel owner indicating 
that the vessel will not be used to take and retain or possess 
groundfish in the EEZ or land groundfish taken in the EEZ during the new 
fishing year.
    (v) Emergency exemption. Vessels required to have VMS under 
paragraph (b) of this section may be exempted from VMS provisions in 
emergency situations that are beyond the vessel owner's control, 
including but not limited to: Fire, flooding, or extensive physical 
damage to critical areas of the vessel. A vessel owner may apply for an 
emergency exemption from the VMS requirements specified in paragraph (b) 
of this section for his/her vessel by sending a written request to NMFS 
OLE specifying the following information: The reasons for seeking an 
exemption, including any supporting documents (e.g., repair invoices, 
photographs showing damage to the vessel, insurance claim forms, etc.); 
the time period for which the exemption is requested; and the location 
of the vessel while the exemption is in effect. NMFS OLE will issue a 
written determination granting or denying the emergency exemption 
request. A vessel will not be covered by the emergency exemption until 
NMFS OLE issues a determination granting the exemption. If an exemption 
is granted, the duration of the exemption will be specified in the NMFS 
OLE determination.
    (vi) Submission of exemption reports. Signed long-term departure 
exemption reports must be submitted by fax or by emailing an electronic 
copy of the actual report. In the event of an emergency in which an 
emergency exemption request will be submitted, initial contact with NMFS 
OLE must be made by telephone, fax or email within 24 hours from when 
the incident occurred. Emergency exemption requests must be requested in 
writing within 72 hours from when the incident occurred. Other exemption 
reports must be submitted through the VMS or another method that is 
approved by NMFS OLE and announced in the Federal Register. Submission 
methods for exemption requests, except long-term departures and 
emergency exemption requests, may include email, facsimile, or 
telephone. NMFS OLE will provide, through appropriate media, 
instructions to the public on submitting exemption reports. Instructions 
and other information needed to make exemption reports may be mailed to 
the vessel owner's address of record. NMFS will bear no responsibility 
if a notification is sent to the address of record for the vessel owner 
and is not received because the vessel owner's actual address has 
changed without notification to NMFS. Owners of vessels required to use 
VMS who do not receive instructions by mail are responsible for 
contacting NMFS OLE during business hours at least 3 days before the 
exemption is required to obtain information needed to make exemption 
reports. NMFS OLE must be contacted during business hours (Monday 
through Friday between 0800 and 1700 Pacific Time).
    (vii) Valid exemption reports. For an exemption report to be valid, 
it must be received by NMFS at least 2 hours and not more than 24 hours 
before the exempted activities defined at paragraphs (d)(4)(i) through 
(iv) of this section occur. An exemption report is valid until NMFS 
receives a report canceling the exemption. An exemption cancellation 
must be received at least 2 hours before the vessel re-enters the EEZ 
following an outside areas exemption; at least 2 hours before the vessel 
is placed back in the water following a haul out exemption; at least 2 
hours before the vessel resumes fishing for any species of fish in state 
or Federal waters off the States of Washington, Oregon, or California 
after it has received a permit transfer exemption; or at least 2 hours 
before a vessel resumes fishing in the open access fishery after a long-
term departure exemption. If a vessel is required to submit an 
activation report under paragraph (d)(2)(i) of this section before 
returning to fish, that report may substitute for

[[Page 26]]

the exemption cancellation. Initial contact must be made with NMFS OLE 
not more than 24 hours after the time that an emergency situation 
occurred in which VMS transmissions were disrupted and followed by a 
written emergency exemption request within 72 hours from when the 
incident occurred. If the emergency situation upon which an emergency 
exemption is based is resolved before the exemption expires, an 
exemption cancellation must be received by NMFS at least 2 hours before 
the vessel resumes fishing.
    (5) When aware that transmission of automatic position reports has 
been interrupted, or when notified by NMFS OLE that automatic position 
reports are not being received, contact NMFS OLE at 7600 Sand Point Way 
NE, Seattle, WA 98115-6349, phone: (206) 526-6133 and follow the 
instructions provided to you. Such instructions may include, but are not 
limited to, manually communicating to a location designated by NMFS OLE 
the vessel's position or returning to port until the VMS is operable.
    (6) After a fishing trip during which interruption of automatic 
position reports has occurred, the vessel's owner or operator must 
replace or repair the mobile transceiver unit prior to the vessel's next 
fishing trip. Repair or reinstallation of a mobile transceiver unit or 
installation of a replacement, including change of communications 
service provider shall be in accordance with the instructions provided 
by NMFS OLE and require the same certification.
    (7) Make the mobile transceiver units available for inspection by 
NMFS OLE personnel, USCG personnel, state enforcement personnel or any 
authorized officer.
    (8) Ensure that the mobile transceiver unit is not tampered with, 
disabled, destroyed, operated, or maintained improperly.
    (9) Pay all charges levied by the communication service provider as 
necessary to ensure continuous operation of the VMS transceiver units.

Sec. 660.15  Equipment requirements.

    (a) Applicability. This section contains the equipment and 
operational requirements for scales used to weigh catch at sea, scales 
used to weigh catch at IFQ first receivers, computer hardware for 
electronic fish ticket software, and computer hardware for electronic 
logbook software. Unless otherwise specified by regulation, the operator 
or manager must retain, for 3 years, a copy of all records described in 
this section and make available the records upon request of NMFS staff 
or authorized officer.
    (b) Scales used to weigh catch at sea--performance and technical 
requirements. (1) Scales approved by NMFS for MS and C/P Coop Programs. 
A scale used to weigh catch in the MS and C/P Coop Programs must meet 
the type evaluation and initial inspection requirements set forth in 50 
CFR 679.28(b)(1) and (2), and must be approved by NMFS.
    (2) Annual inspection. Once a scale is installed on a vessel and 
approved by NMFS for use, it must be inspected annually as described in 
50 CFR 679.28(b).
    (3) Daily testing. Each scale must be tested daily and meet the 
maximum permissible error (MPE) requirements described at described at 
paragraph (b)(4) of this section.
    (4) At-sea scale tests. To verify that the scale meets the maximum 
permissible errors (MPEs) specified in this paragraph, the vessel 
operator must ensure that vessel crew test each scale used to weigh 
catch at least one time during each 24-hour period when use of the scale 
is required. The vessel owner must ensure that these tests are performed 
in an accurate and timely manner.
    (i) Belt scales. The MPE for the daily at-sea scale test is plus or 
minus 3 percent of the known weight of the test material. The scale must 
be tested by weighing at least 400 kg (882 lb) of fish or an alternative 
material supplied by the scale manufacturer on the scale under test. The 
known weight of the fish or test material must be determined by weighing 
it on a platform scale approved for use under 50 CFR 679.28(b)(7).
    (ii) Platform scales used for observer sampling on MSs and C/Ps. A 
platform

[[Page 27]]

scale used for observer sampling must be tested at 10, 25, and 50 kg (or 
20, 50, and 100 lb if the scale is denominated in pounds) using approved 
test weights. The MPE for the daily at-sea scale test is plus or minus 
0.5 percent.
    (iii) Approved test weights. Each test weight must have its weight 
stamped on or otherwise permanently affixed to it. The weight of each 
test weight must be annually certified by a National Institute of 
Standards and Technology approved metrology laboratory or approved for 
continued use by the NMFS authorized inspector at the time of the annual 
scale inspection.
    (iv) Requirements for all at-sea scale tests. The vessel operator 
must ensure that vessel crew:
    (A) Notify the observer at least 15 minutes before the time that the 
test will be conducted, and conduct the test while the observer is 
present.
    (B) Conduct the scale test and record the following information on 
the at-sea scale test report form:
    (1) Vessel name;
    (2) Month, day, and year of test;
    (3) Time test started to the nearest minute;
    (4) Known weight of test weights;
    (5) Weight of test weights recorded by scale;
    (6) Percent error as determined by subtracting the known weight of 
the test weights from the weight recorded on the scale, dividing that 
amount by the known weight of the test weights, and multiplying by 100; 
and
    (7) Sea conditions at the time of the scale test.
    (C) Maintain the test report form on board the vessel until the end 
of the fishing year during which the tests were conducted, and make the 
report forms available to observers, NMFS staff, or authorized officers. 
In addition, the vessel owner must retain the scale test report forms 
for 3 years after the end of the fishing year during which the tests 
were performed. Each scale test report form must be signed by the vessel 
operator immediately following completion of each scale test.
    (5) Scale maintenance. The vessel owner must ensure that the vessel 
operator maintains the scale in proper operating condition throughout 
its use, that adjustments made to the scale are made so as to bring the 
performance errors as close as practicable to a zero value, and that no 
adjustment is made that will cause the scale to weigh inaccurately.
    (6) Printed reports from the scale. The vessel owner must ensure 
that the printed reports are provided to NMFS as required by this 
paragraph. Printed reports from the scale must be maintained on board 
the vessel until the end of the year during which the reports were made, 
and be made available to NMFS staff or authorized officers. In addition, 
the vessel owner must retain printed reports for 3 years after the end 
of the year during which the printouts were made.
    (i) Reports of catch weight and cumulative weight. Reports must be 
printed at least once every 24 hours. Reports must also be printed 
before any information stored in the scale computer memory is replaced. 
Scale weights must not be adjusted by the scale operator to account for 
the perceived weight of water, slime, mud, debris, or other materials. 
Scale printouts must show:
    (A) The vessel name and Federal vessel permit number;
    (B) The date and time the information was printed;
    (C) The haul number;
    (D) The total weight of the haul; and
    (E) The total cumulative weight of all fish and other material 
weighed on the scale since the last annual inspection.
    (ii) Printed report from the audit trail. The printed report must 
include the information specified in sections 2.3.1.8, 3.3.1.7, and 
4.3.1.8 of appendix A to 50 CFR part 679. The printed report must be 
provided to the authorized scale inspector at each scale inspection and 
must also be printed at any time upon request of NMFS staff or other 
authorized officer.
    (iii) Platform scales used for observer sampling. A platform scale 
used for observer sampling is not required to produce a printed record.
    (c) Scales used to weigh catch at IFQ first receivers--performance 
and technical requirements. Scale requirements in this paragraph are in 
addition to those requirements set forth by the State in which the scale 
is located, and nothing

[[Page 28]]

in this paragraph may be construed to reduce or supersede the authority 
of the State to regulate, test, or approve scales within the State. 
Scales used to weigh catch that are also required to be approved by the 
State must meet the following requirements:
    (1) Verification of approval. The scale must display a valid sticker 
indicating that the scale is currently approved in accordance with the 
laws of the state where the scale is located.
    (2) Visibility. NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized personnel, or authorized 
officers must be allowed to observe the weighing of catch on the scale 
and be allowed to read the scale display at all times.
    (3) Printed scale weights. (i) An IFQ first receiver must ensure 
that printouts of the scale weight of each delivery or offload are made 
available to NMFS staff, to NMFS-authorized personnel, or to authorized 
officers at the time printouts are generated. An IFQ first receiver must 
maintain printouts on site until the end of the fishing year during 
which the printouts were made and make them available upon request by 
NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized personnel, or authorized officers for 3 
years after the end of the fishing year during which the printout was 
made.
    (ii) All scales identified in a catch monitoring plan (see Sec. 
660.140(f)(3), subpart D) must produce a printed record for each 
delivery, or portion of a delivery, weighed on that scale, unless 
specifically exempted by NMFS. NMFS may exempt, as part of the NMFS-
accepted catch monitoring plan, scales not designed for automatic bulk 
weighing from part or all of the printed record requirements. For scales 
that must produce a printed record, the printed record must include:
    (A) The IFQ first receiver's name;
    (B) The weight of each load in the weighing cycle;
    (C) The total weight of fish in each landing, or portion of the 
landing that was weighed on that scale;
    (D) The date the information is printed; and
    (E) The name and vessel registration or documentation number of the 
vessel making the delivery. The scale operator may write this 
information on the scale printout in ink at the time of printing.
    (4) Inseason scale testing. IFQ first receivers must allow, and 
provide reasonable assistance to NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized personnel, 
and authorized officers to test scales used to weigh IFQ catch. A scale 
that does not pass an inseason test may not be used to weigh IFQ catch 
until the scale passes an inseason test or is approved for continued use 
by the weights and measures authorities of the State in which the scale 
is located.
    (i) Inseason testing criteria. To pass an inseason test, NMFS staff 
or authorized officers must be able to verify that:
    (A) The scale display and printed information are clear and easily 
read under all conditions of normal operation;
    (B) Weight values are visible on the display until the value is 
printed;
    (C) The scale does not exceed the maximum permissible errors 
specified in the following table:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (D) Automatic weighing systems. An automatic weighing system must be 
provided and operational that will prevent fish from passing over the 
scale or entering any weighing hopper unless the following criteria are 
met:
    (1) No catch may enter or leave a weighing hopper until the weighing 
cycle is complete;
    (2) No product may be cycled and weighed if the weight recording 
element is not operational; and
    (3) No product may enter a weighing hopper until the prior weighing 
cycle has been completed and the scale indicator has returned to a zero.
    (ii) [Reserved]
    (d) Electronic fish tickets. IFQ first receivers using the 
electronic fish ticket software provided by Pacific States Marine 
Fisheries Commission are required to meet the hardware and software

    (13) Confidentiality of information. A catch monitor provider must 
ensure that all records on individual catch monitor performance received 
from NMFS under the routine use provision of the Privacy Act or as 
otherwise required by law remain confidential and are not further 
released to anyone outside the employ of the catch monitor provider 
company to whom the catch monitor was contracted except with written 
permission of the catch monitor.
    (14) Catch monitor program training and certification--(i) A 
training certification signifies the successful completion of the 
training course required to obtain catch monitor certification. This 
endorsement expires when the catch monitor has not been deployed and

[75 FR 78380, Dec. 15, 2010, as amended by 76 FR 53835, Aug. 30, 2011]



Sec. 660.20  Vessel and gear identification.

    (a) Vessel identification--(1) Display. The operator of a vessel 
that is over 25 ft (7.6 m) in length and is engaged in commercial 
fishing for groundfish must display the vessel's official number on the 
port and starboard sides of the deckhouse or hull, and on a weather deck 
so as to be visible from above. The number must contrast with the 
background and be in block Arabic numerals at least 18 inches (45.7 cm) 
high for vessels over 65 ft (19.8 m) long and at least 10 inches (25.4 
cm) high for vessels between 25 and 65 ft (7.6 and 19.8 m) in length. 
The length of a vessel for purposes of this section is the length set 
forth in USCG records or in state records, if no USCG record exists.
    (2) Maintenance of numbers. The operator of a vessel engaged in 
commercial fishing for groundfish must keep the identifying markings 
required by paragraph (a)(1) of this section clearly legible and in good 
repair, and must ensure that no part of the vessel, its rigging, or its 
fishing gear obstructs the view of the official number from an 
enforcement vessel or aircraft.
    (3) Commercial passenger vessels. This section does not apply to 
vessels carrying fishing parties on a per-capita basis or by charter.
    (b) Gear identification. Gear identification requirements specific 
to fisheries using fixed gear (limited entry and open access) are 
described at Sec. 660.219, subpart E and Sec. 660.319, subpart F.



Sec. 660.24  Limited entry and open access fisheries.

    (a) General. All commercial fishing for groundfish must be conducted 
in accordance with the regulations governing limited entry and open 
access fisheries, except such fishing by treaty Indian tribes as may be 
separately provided for.
    (b) [Reserved]



Sec. 660.25  Permits.

    (a) General. Each of the permits or licenses in this section has 
different conditions or privileges as part of the permit or license. The 
permits or licenses in this section confer a conditional privilege of 
participating in the Pacific coast groundfish fishery, in accordance 
with Federal regulations in 50 CFR part 660, subparts C through G.
    (b) Limited entry permit--(1) Eligibility and registration--(i) 
General. In order for a vessel to be used to fish in the limited entry 
fishery, the vessel owner must hold a limited entry permit and, through 
SFD, must register that vessel for use with a limited entry permit. When 
participating in the limited entry fishery, a vessel is authorized to 
fish with the gear type endorsed on the limited entry permit registered 
for use with that vessel, except that the MS permit does not have a gear 
endorsement. There are three types of gear endorsements: Trawl, 
longline, and pot (or trap). All limited entry permits, except the MS 
permit, have size endorsements; a vessel registered for use with a 
limited entry permit must comply with the vessel size requirements of 
this subpart. A sablefish endorsement is also required for a vessel to 
be used to fish in the primary season for the limited entry fixed gear 
sablefish fishery, north of 36[deg] N. lat. Certain limited entry 
permits will also have endorsements required for participation in a 
specific fishery, such as the MS/CV endorsement and the C/P endorsement.
    (ii) Eligibility. Only a person eligible to own a documented vessel 
under the terms of 46 U.S.C. 12113 (a) may be issued or may hold a 
limited entry permit.
    (iii) Registration. Limited entry permits will normally be 
registered for use with a particular vessel at the time the permit is 
issued, renewed, transferred, or replaced. If the permit will be used 
with a vessel other than the one registered on the permit, the permit 
owner must register that permit for use with the new vessel through the 
SFD. The reissued permit must be placed on board the new vessel in order 
for the vessel to be used to fish in the limited entry fishery.
    (A) For all limited entry permits, including MS permits, MS/CV-
endorsed

[[Page 38]]

permits, and C/P-endorsed permits when they are not fishing in the at-
sea whiting fisheries, registration of a limited entry permit to be used 
with a new vessel will take effect no earlier than the first day of the 
next major limited entry cumulative limit period following the date SFD 
receives the transfer form and the original permit.
    (B) For MS permits, MS/CV-endorsed permits, and C/P-endorsed permits 
when they are fishing in the at-sea whiting fisheries, registration of a 
limited entry permit to be used with a new vessel will take effect on 
the date NMFS approves and issuance of the transferred permit.
    (iv) Limited entry permits indivisible. Limited entry permits may 
not be divided for use by more than one vessel.
    (v) Initial administrative determination. SFD will make an IAD 
regarding permit endorsements, renewal, replacement, and change in 
vessel registration. SFD will notify the permit owner in writing with an 
explanation of any determination to deny a permit endorsement, renewal, 
replacement, or change in vessel registration. The SFD will decline to 
act on an application for permit endorsement, renewal, transfer, 
replacement, or registration of a limited entry permit if the permit is 
subject to sanction provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Act at 16 U.S.C. 
1858 (a) and implementing regulations at 15 CFR part 904, subpart D, 
apply.
    (2) Mothership (MS) permit. The MS permit conveys a conditional 
privilege for the vessel registered to it, to participate in the MS 
fishery by receiving and processing deliveries of groundfish in the 
Pacific whiting mothership sector. An MS permit is a type of limited 
entry permit. An MS permit does not have any endorsements affixed to the 
permit. The provisions for the MS permit, including eligibility, 
renewal, change of permit ownership, vessel registration, fees, and 
appeals are described at Sec. 660.150 (f).
    (3) Endorsements--(i) ``A'' endorsement. A limited entry permit with 
an ``A'' endorsement entitles the vessel registered to the permit to 
fish in the limited entry fishery for all groundfish species with the 
type(s) of limited entry gear specified in the endorsement, except for 
sablefish harvested north of 36[deg] N. lat. during times and with gears 
for which a sablefish endorsement is required. See paragraph (b)(3)(iv) 
of this section for provisions on sablefish endorsement requirements. An 
``A'' endorsement is transferable with the limited entry permit to 
another person, or to a different vessel under the same ownership under 
paragraph (b)(4) of this section. An ``A'' endorsement expires on 
failure to renew the limited entry permit to which it is affixed. An MS 
permit is not considered a limited entry ``A''-endorsed permit.
    (ii) Gear endorsement. There are three types of gear endorsements: 
Trawl, longline and pot (trap). When limited entry ``A''-endorsed 
permits were first issued, some vessel owners qualified for more than 
one type of gear endorsement based on the landings history of their 
vessels. Each limited entry ``A''-endorsed permit has one or more gear 
endorsement(s). Gear endorsement(s) assigned to the permit at the time 
of issuance will be permanent and shall not be modified. While 
participating in the limited entry fishery, the vessel registered to the 
limited entry ``A''-endorsed permit is authorized to fish the gear(s) 
endorsed on the permit. While participating in the limited entry, fixed 
gear primary fishery for sablefish described at Sec. 660.231, subpart 
E, a vessel registered to more than one limited entry permit is 
authorized to fish with any gear, except trawl gear, endorsed on at 
least one of the permits registered for use with that vessel. During the 
limited entry fishery, permit holders may also fish with open access 
gear, except that vessels fishing against primary sablefish season 
cumulative limits described at Sec. 660.231, subpart E, may not fish 
with open access gear against those limits. An MS permit does not have a 
gear endorsement.
    (iii) Vessel size endorsements--(A) General. Each limited entry 
``A''-endorsed permit will be endorsed with the LOA for the size of the 
vessel that initially qualified for the permit, except when permits are 
combined into one permit to be registered for use with a vessel 
requiring a larger size endorsement, the new permit will be endorsed for 
the size that results from the combination of the permits.

[[Page 39]]

    (B) Limitations of size endorsements. (1) A limited entry permit may 
be registered for use with a vessel up to 5 ft (1.52 m) longer than, the 
same length as, or any length shorter than, the size endorsed on the 
existing permit without requiring a combination of permits or a change 
in the size endorsement.
    (2) The vessel harvest capacity rating for each of the permits being 
combined is that indicated in Table 3 of subpart C for the LOA (in feet) 
endorsed on the respective limited entry permit. Harvest capacity 
ratings for fractions of a foot in vessel length will be determined by 
multiplying the fraction of a foot in vessel length by the difference in 
the two ratings assigned to the nearest integers of vessel length. The 
length rating for the combined permit is that indicated for the sum of 
the vessel harvest capacity ratings for each permit being combined. If 
that sum falls between the sums for two adjacent lengths on Table 3 of 
subpart C, the length rating shall be the higher length.
    (C) Size endorsement requirements for sablefish-endorsed permits. 
Notwithstanding paragraphs (b)(3)(iii)(A) and (B) of this section, when 
multiple permits are ``stacked'' on a vessel, as described in paragraph 
(b)(4)(iii), at least one of the permits must meet the size requirements 
of those sections. The permit that meets the size requirements of those 
sections is considered the vessel's ``base'' permit, as defined in Sec. 
660.11, subpart C. If more than one permit registered for use with the 
vessel has an appropriate length endorsement for that vessel, NMFS SFD 
will designate a base permit by selecting the permit that has been 
registered to the vessel for the longest time. If the permit owner 
objects to NMFS' selection of the base permit, the permit owner may send 
a letter to NMFS SFD requesting the change and the reasons for the 
request. If the permit requested to be changed to the base permit is 
appropriate for the length of the vessel, NMFS SFD will reissue the 
permit with the new base permit. Any additional permits that are stacked 
for use with a vessel participating in the limited entry fixed gear 
primary sablefish fishery may be registered for use with a vessel even 
if the vessel is more than 5 ft (1.5 m) longer or shorter than the size 
endorsed on the permit.
    (iv) Sablefish endorsement and tier assignment--(A) General. 
Participation in the limited entry fixed gear sablefish fishery during 
the primary season north of 36[deg] N. lat., described in Sec. 660.231, 
Subpart E, requires that an owner of a vessel hold (by ownership or 
lease) a limited entry permit, registered for use with that vessel, with 
a longline or trap (or pot) endorsement and a sablefish endorsement. Up 
to three permits with sablefish endorsements may be registered for use 
with a single vessel. Limited entry permits with sablefish endorsements 
are assigned to one of three different cumulative trip limit tiers, 
based on the qualifying catch history of the permit.
    (1) A sablefish endorsement with a tier assignment will be affixed 
to the permit and will remain valid when the permit is transferred.
    (2) A sablefish endorsement and its associated tier assignment are 
not separable from the limited entry permit, and therefore may not be 
transferred separately from the limited entry permit.
    (B) Issuance process for sablefish endorsements and tier 
assignments. No new applications for sablefish endorsements will be 
accepted after November 30, 1998. All tier assignments and subsequent 
appeals processes were completed by September 1998.
    (C) Ownership requirements and limitations. (1) No partnership or 
corporation may own a limited entry permit with a sablefish endorsement 
unless that partnership or corporation owned a limited entry permit with 
a sablefish endorsement on November 1, 2000. Otherwise, only individual 
human persons may own limited entry permits with sablefish endorsements.
    (2) No individual person, partnership, or corporation in combination 
may have ownership interest in or hold more than 3 permits with 
sablefish endorsements either simultaneously or cumulatively over the 
primary season, except for an individual person, or partnerships or 
corporations that had ownership interest in more than 3 permits with 
sablefish endorsements as of November 1, 2000. The exemption from

[[Page 40]]

the maximum ownership level of 3 permits only applies to ownership of 
the particular permits that were owned on November 1, 2000. An 
individual person, or partnerships or corporations that had ownership 
interest in 3 or more permits with sablefish endorsements as of November 
1, 2000, may not acquire additional permits beyond those particular 
permits owned on November 1, 2000. If, at some future time, an 
individual person, partnership, or corporation that owned more than 3 
permits as of November 1, 2000, sells or otherwise permanently transfers 
(not holding through a lease arrangement) some of its originally owned 
permits, such that they then own fewer than 3 permits, they may then 
acquire additional permits, but may not have ownership interest in or 
hold more than 3 permits.
    (3) A partnership or corporation will lose the exemptions provided 
in paragraphs (b)(3)(iv)(C)(1) and (2) of this section on the effective 
date of any change in the corporation or partnership from that which 
existed on November 1, 2000. A ``change'' in the partnership or 
corporation is defined at Sec. 660.11, subpart C. A change in the 
partnership or corporation must be reported to SFD within 15 calendar 
days of the addition of a new shareholder or partner.
    (4) Any partnership or corporation with any ownership interest in or 
that holds a limited entry permit with a sablefish endorsement shall 
document the extent of that ownership interest or the individuals that 
hold the permit with the SFD via the Identification of Ownership 
Interest Form sent to the permit owner through the annual permit renewal 
process and whenever a change in permit owner, permit holder, and/or 
vessel registration occurs as described at paragraph (b)(4)(iv) and (v) 
of this section. SFD will not renew a sablefish-endorsed limited entry 
permit through the annual renewal process described at paragraph 
(b)(4)(i) of this section, or approve a change in permit owner, permit 
holder, and/or vessel registration unless the Identification of 
Ownership Interest Form has been completed. Further, if SFD discovers 
through review of the Identification of Ownership Interest Form that an 
individual person, partnership, or corporation owns or holds more than 3 
permits and is not authorized to do so under paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(2) 
of this section, the individual person, partnership or corporation will 
be notified and the permits owned or held by that individual person, 
partnership, or corporation will be void and reissued with the vessel 
status as ``unidentified'' until the permit owner owns and/or holds a 
quantity of permits appropriate to the restrictions and requirements 
described in paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(2) of this section. If SFD 
discovers through review of the Identification of Ownership Interest 
Form that a partnership or corporation has had a change in membership 
since November 1, 2000, as described in paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(3) of 
this section, the partnership or corporation will be notified, SFD will 
void any existing permits, and reissue any permits owned and/or held by 
that partnership or corporation in ``unidentified'' status with respect 
to vessel registration until the partnership or corporation is able to 
transfer those permits to persons authorized under this section to own 
sablefish-endorsed limited entry permits.
    (5) A person, partnership, or corporation that is exempt from the 
owner-on-board requirement may sell all of their permits, buy another 
sablefish-endorsed permit within up to a year from the date the last 
permit was approved for transfer, and retain their exemption from the 
owner-on-board requirements. An individual person, partnership or 
corporation could only obtain a permit if it has not added or changed 
individuals since November 1, 2000, excluding individuals that have left 
the partnership or corporation or that have died.
    (D) Sablefish at-sea processing prohibition and exemption. Vessels 
are prohibited from processing sablefish at sea that were caught in the 
primary sablefish fishery without sablefish at-sea processing 
exemptions. The sablefish at-sea processing exemption has been issued to 
a particular vessel and that permit and vessel owner who requested the 
exemption. The exemption is not part of the limited entry permit. The 
exemption is not transferable to any other vessel, vessel owner, or 
permit owner for any reason. The sablefish at-

[[Page 41]]

sea processing exemption will expire upon transfer of the vessel to a 
new owner or if the vessel is totally lost, as defined at Sec. 660.11, 
subpart C.
    (v) MS/CV endorsement. An MS/CV endorsement on a trawl limited entry 
permit conveys a conditional privilege that allows a vessel registered 
to it to fish in either the coop or non-coop fishery in the MS Coop 
Program described at Sec. 660.150. The provisions for the MS/CV-
endorsed limited entry permit, including eligibility, renewal, change of 
permit ownership, vessel registration, combinations, accumulation 
limits, fees, and appeals are described at Sec. 660.150(g).
    (vi) C/P endorsement. A C/P endorsement on a trawl limited entry 
permit conveys a conditional privilege that allows a vessel registered 
to it to fish in the C/P Coop Program described at Sec. 660.160. The 
provisions for the C/P-endorsed limited entry permit, including 
eligibility, renewal, change of permit ownership, vessel registration, 
combinations, fees, and appeals are described at Sec. 660.160(e).
    (vii) Endorsement and exemption restrictions. ``A'' endorsements, 
gear endorsements, sablefish endorsements and sablefish tier 
assignments, MS/CV endorsements, and C/P endorsements may not be 
transferred separately from the limited entry permit. Sablefish at-sea 
processing exemptions are associated with the vessel and not with the 
limited entry permit and may not be transferred at all.
    (4)  Limited entry permit actions--renewal, combination, stacking, 
change of permit ownership or permit holdership, and change in vessel 
registration --(i) Renewal of limited entry permits and gear 
endorsements. (A) Limited entry permits expire at the end of each 
calendar year, and must be renewed between October 1 and November 30 of 
each year in order to remain in force the following year.
    (B) Notification to renew limited entry permits will be issued by 
SFD prior to September 1 each year to the permit owner's most recent 
address in the SFD record. The permit owner shall provide SFD with 
notice of any address change within 15 days of the change.
    (C) Limited entry permit renewal requests received in SFD between 
November 30 and December 31 will be effective on the date that the 
renewal is approved. A limited entry permit that is allowed to expire 
will not be renewed unless the permit owner requests reissuance by March 
31 of the following year and the SFD determines that failure to renew 
was proximately caused by illness, injury, or death of the permit owner.
    (D) Limited entry permits with sablefish endorsements, as described 
at paragraph (b)(3)(iv) of this section, will not be renewed until SFD 
has received complete documentation of permit ownership as required 
under paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(4) of this section.
    (E) Limited entry permits with an MS/CV endorsement or an MS permit, 
will not be renewed until SFD has received complete documentation of 
permit ownership as required under Sec. 660.150(g) and Sec. 660.150(f) 
of subpart D, respectively.
    (F) A limited entry permit will not be renewed until a complete 
economic data collection form is submitted as required under Sec. 
660.113(b), (c) and (d), subpart D. The permit renewal will be marked 
incomplete until the required information is submitted.
    (ii) Combining limited entry ``A'' permits. Two or more limited 
entry permits with ``A'' gear endorsements for the same type of limited 
entry gear may be combined and reissued as a single permit with a larger 
size endorsement as described in paragraph (b)(3)(iii) of this section.
    (A) Sablefish-endorsed permit. With respect to limited entry permits 
endorsed for longline and pot (trap) gear, a sablefish endorsement will 
be issued for the new permit only if all of the permits being combined 
have sablefish endorsements. If two or more permits with sablefish 
endorsements are combined, the new permit will receive the same tier 
assignment as the tier with the largest cumulative landings limit of the 
permits being combined.
    (B) MS/CV-endorsed permit. When an MS/CV-endorsed permit is combined 
with another non-C/P-endorsed permit (including unendorsed permits), the 
resulting permit will be MS/CV-endorsed.

[[Page 42]]

If an MS/CV-endorsed permit is combined with a C/P-endorsed permit, the 
MS/CV endorsement and catch history assignment will not be reissued on 
the combined permit.
    (C) C/P-endorsed permit. A C/P-endorsed permit that is combined with 
a limited entry trawl permit that is not C/P-endorsed will result in a 
single C/P-endorsed permit with a larger size endorsement. An MS/CV 
endorsement on one of the permits being combined will not be reissued on 
the resulting permit.
    (iii) Stacking limited entry permits. ``Stacking'' limited entry 
permits, as defined at Sec. 660.11, subpart C, refers to the practice 
of registering more than one sablefish-endorsed permit for use with a 
single vessel. Only limited entry permits with sablefish endorsements 
may be stacked. Up to 3 limited entry permits with sablefish 
endorsements may be registered for use with a single vessel during the 
primary sablefish season described at Sec. 660.231, subpart E. 
Privileges, responsibilities, and restrictions associated with stacking 
permits to fish in the primary sablefish fishery are described at Sec. 
660.231, subpart E and at paragraph (b)(3)(iv) of this section.
    (iv) Changes in permit ownership and permit holder--(A) General. The 
permit owner may convey the limited entry permit to a different person. 
The new permit owner will not be authorized to use the permit until the 
change in permit ownership has been registered with and approved by the 
SFD. The SFD will not approve a change in permit ownership for a limited 
entry permit with a sablefish endorsement that does not meet the 
ownership requirements for such permit described at paragraph 
(b)(3)(iv)(C) of this section. The SFD will not approve a change in 
permit ownership for a limited entry permit with an MS/CV endorsement or 
an MS permit that does not meet the ownership requirements for such 
permit described at Sec. 660.150(g)(3), subpart D, and Sec. 
660.150(f)(3), subpart D, respectively. Change in permit owner and/or 
permit holder applications must be submitted to SFD with the appropriate 
documentation described at paragraph (b)(4)(vii) of this section.
    (1) During the initial issuance application period for the trawl 
rationalization program, NMFS will not review or approve any request for 
a change in limited entry trawl permit owner, as specified at Sec. 
660.140(d)(8)(viii) for QS permit applicants, at Sec. 
660.150(g)(6)(vii) for MS/CV endorsement applicants, and at Sec. 
660.160(d)(7)(vii) for C/P endorsement applicants. The initial issuance 
application period for the trawl rationalization program will begin on 
either November 1, 2010, or the date upon which the application is 
received by NMFS, whichever occurs first.
    (2) [Reserved]
    (B) Effective date. The change in ownership of the permit or change 
in the permit holder will be effective on the day the change is approved 
by SFD, unless there is a concurrent change in the vessel registered to 
the permit. Requirements for changing the vessel registered to the 
permit are described at paragraph (b)(4)(v) of this section.
    (C) Sablefish-endorsed permits. If a permit owner submits an 
application to transfer a sablefish-endorsed limited entry permit to a 
new permit owner or holder (transferee) during the primary sablefish 
season described at Sec. 660.231, subpart E (generally April 1 through 
October 31), the initial permit owner (transferor) must certify on the 
application form the cumulative quantity, in round weight, of primary 
season sablefish landed against that permit as of the application 
signature date for the then current primary season. The transferee must 
sign the application form acknowledging the amount of landings to date 
given by the transferor. This certified amount should match the total 
amount of primary season sablefish landings reported on state landing 
receipts. As required at Sec. 660.12(b), subpart C, any person landing 
sablefish must retain on board the vessel from which sablefish is 
landed, and provide to an authorized officer upon request, copies of any 
and all reports of sablefish landings from the primary season containing 
all data, and in the exact manner, required by the applicable state law 
throughout the primary sablefish season during which a landing occurred 
and for 15 days thereafter.
    (v) Changes in vessel registration of limited entry permits and gear 
endorsements--(A) General. A permit may not be used with any vessel 
other than the

[[Page 43]]

vessel registered to that permit. For purposes of this section, a permit 
change in vessel registration occurs when, through SFD, a permit owner 
registers a limited entry permit for use with a new vessel. Permit 
change in vessel registration applications must be submitted to SFD with 
the appropriate documentation described at paragraph (b)(4)(vii) of this 
section. Upon receipt of a complete application, and following review 
and approval of the application, the SFD will reissue the permit 
registered to the new vessel. Applications to change vessel registration 
on limited entry permits with sablefish endorsements will not be 
approved until SFD has received complete documentation of permit 
ownership as described at paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(4) and as required 
under paragraph (b)(4)(vii) of this section. Applications to change 
vessel registration on limited entry permits with trawl endorsements or 
MS permits will not be approved until SFD has received complete EDC 
forms as required under Sec. 660.114, subpart D.
    (B) Application. A complete application must be submitted to SFD in 
order for SFD to review and approve a change in vessel registration. At 
a minimum, a permit owner seeking to change vessel registration of a 
limited entry permit shall submit to SFD a signed application form and 
his/her current limited entry permit before the first day of the 
cumulative limit period in which they wish to fish. If a permit owner 
provides a signed application and current limited entry permit after the 
first day of a cumulative limit period, the permit will not be effective 
until the succeeding cumulative limit period. SFD will not approve a 
change in vessel registration until it receives a complete application, 
the existing permit, a current copy of the USCG 1270, and other required 
documentation.
    (C) Effective date. Changes in vessel registration on permits will 
take effect no sooner than the first day of the next major limited entry 
cumulative limit period following the date that SFD receives the signed 
permit change in vessel registration form and the original limited entry 
permit, except that changes in vessel registration on MS permits and C/
P-endorsed permits will take effect immediately upon reissuance to the 
new vessel, and a change in vessel registration on MS/CV-endorsed 
permits will take effect immediately upon reissuance to the new vessel 
only on the second transfer for the year. No change in vessel 
registration is effective until the limited entry permit has been 
reissued as registered with the new vessel.
    (D) Sablefish-endorsed permits. If a permit owner submits an 
application to register a sablefish-endorsed limited entry permit to a 
new vessel during the primary sablefish season described at Sec. 
660.231, subpart E (generally April 1 through October 31), the initial 
permit owner (transferor) must certify on the application form the 
cumulative quantity, in round weight, of primary season sablefish landed 
against that permit as of the application signature date for the then 
current primary season. The new permit owner or holder (transferee) 
associated with the new vessel must sign the application form 
acknowledging the amount of landings to date given by the transferor. 
This certified amount should match the total amount of primary season 
sablefish landings reported on state landing receipts. As required at 
Sec. 660.12(b), subpart C, any person landing sablefish must retain on 
board the vessel from which sablefish is landed, and provide to an 
authorized officer upon request, copies of any and all reports of 
sablefish landings from the primary season containing all data, and in 
the exact manner, required by the applicable state law throughout the 
primary sablefish season during which a landing occurred and for 15 days 
thereafter.
    (vi) Restriction on frequency of changes in vessel registration--(A) 
General. A permit owner may designate the vessel registration for a 
permit as ``unidentified,'' meaning that no vessel has been identified 
as registered for use with that permit. No vessel is authorized to use a 
permit with the vessel registration designated as ``unidentified.'' A 
vessel owner who removes a permit from his vessel and registers that 
permit as ``unidentified'' is not exempt from VMS requirements at Sec. 
660.14, subpart C unless specifically authorized by

[[Page 44]]

that section. When a permit owner requests that the permit's vessel 
registration be designated as ``unidentified,'' the transaction is not 
considered a change in vessel registration for purposes of this section. 
Any subsequent request by a permit owner to change from the 
``unidentified'' status of the permit in order to register the permit 
with a specific vessel will be considered a change in vessel 
registration and subject to the restriction on frequency and timing of 
changes in vessel registration.
    (B) Limited entry fixed gear and trawl-endorsed permits (without MS/
CV or C/P endorsements). Limited entry fixed gear and trawl-endorsed 
permits (without MS/CV or C/P endorsements) permits may not be 
registered for use with a different vessel (transfer) more than once per 
calendar year, except in cases of death of a permit holder or if the 
permitted vessel is totally lost as defined in Sec. 660.11, subpart C. 
The exception for death of a permit holder applies for a permit held by 
a partnership or a corporation if the person or persons holding at least 
50 percent of the ownership interest in the entity dies.
    (C) Limited entry MS permits and limited entry permits with an MS/CV 
or a C/P endorsement. Limited entry MS permits and limited entry permits 
with an MS/CV or a C/P endorsement may be registered to another vessel 
up to two times during the fishing season as long as the second change 
in vessel registration is back to the original vessel. The original 
vessel is either the vessel registered to the permit as of January 1, or 
if no vessel is registered to the permit as of January 1, the original 
vessel is the first vessel to which the permit is registered after 
January 1. After the original vessel has been established, the first 
change in vessel registration would be to another vessel, but any second 
change in vessel registration must be back to the original vessel. For 
an MS/CV-endorsed permit on the second change in vessel registration 
back to the original vessel, that vessel must be used to fish 
exclusively in the MS Coop Program described Sec. 660.150, and declare 
in to the limited entry mid water trawl, Pacific whiting mothership 
sector as specified at Sec. 660.13(d)(5)(iv).
    (vii) Application and supplemental documentation. Permit holders may 
request a transfer (change in vessel registration) and/or change in 
permit ownership or permit holder by submitting a complete application 
form. In addition, a permit owner applying for renewal, replacement, 
transfer, or change of ownership or change of permit holder of a limited 
entry permit has the burden to submit evidence to prove that 
qualification requirements are met. The following evidentiary standards 
apply:
    (A) For a request to change a vessel registration and/or change in 
permit ownership or permit holder, the permit owner must provide SFD 
with a current copy of the USCG Form 1270 for vessels of 5 net tons or 
greater, or a current copy of a state registration form for vessels 
under 5 net tons.
    (B) For a request to change a vessel registration and/or change in 
permit ownership or permit holder for sablefish-endorsed permits with a 
tier assignment for which a corporation or partnership is listed as 
permit owner and/or holder, an Identification of Ownership Interest Form 
must be completed and included with the application form.
    (C) For a request to change permit ownership for an MS permit or for 
a request to change a vessel registration and/or change in permit 
ownership or permit holder for an MS/CV-endorsed limited entry trawl 
permit, an Identification of Ownership Interest Form must be completed 
and included with the application form.
    (D) For a request to change the vessel registration to a permit, the 
permit owner must submit to SFD a current marine survey conducted by a 
certified marine surveyor in accordance with USCG regulations to 
authenticate the length overall of the vessel being newly registered 
with the permit. Marine surveys older than 3 years at the time of the 
request for change in vessel registration will not be considered 
``current'' marine surveys for purposes of this requirement.
    (E) For a request to change a permit's ownership where the current 
permit owner is a corporation, partnership or other business entity, the 
applicant

[[Page 45]]

must provide to SFD a corporate resolution that authorizes the 
conveyance of the permit to a new owner and which authorizes the 
individual applicant to request the conveyance on behalf of the 
corporation, partnership, or other business entity.
    (F) For a request to change a permit's ownership that is 
necessitated by the death of the permit owner(s), the individual(s) 
requesting conveyance of the permit to a new owner must provide SFD with 
a death certificate of the permit owner(s) and appropriate legal 
documentation that either: specifically transfers the permit to a 
designated individual(s); or, provides legal authority to the transferor 
to convey the permit ownership.
    (G) For a request to change a permit's ownership that is 
necessitated by divorce, the individual requesting the change in permit 
ownership must submit an executed divorce decree that awards the permit 
to a designated individual(s).
    (H) Such other relevant, credible documentation as the applicant may 
submit, or the SFD or Regional Administrator may request or acquire, may 
also be considered.
    (viii) Application forms available. Application forms for the change 
in vessel registration (transfer) and change of permit ownership or 
permit holder of limited entry permits are available from the SFD (see 
part 600 for address of the Regional Administrator). Contents of the 
application, and required supporting documentation, are specified in the 
application form.
    (ix) Records maintenance. The SFD will maintain records of all 
limited entry permits that have been issued, renewed, transferred, 
registered, or replaced.
    (5) Small fleet. (i) Small limited entry fisheries fleets that are 
controlled by a local government, are in existence as of July 11, 1991, 
and have negligible impacts on the groundfish resource, may be certified 
as consistent with the goals and objectives of the limited entry program 
and incorporated into the limited entry fishery. Permits issued under 
this subsection will be issued in accordance with the standards and 
procedures set out in the PCGFMP and will carry the rights explained 
therein.
    (ii) A permit issued under this section may be registered only to 
another vessel that will continue to operate in the same certified small 
fleet, provided that the total number of vessels in the fleet does not 
increase. A vessel may not use a small fleet limited entry permit for 
participation in the limited entry fishery outside of authorized 
activities of the small fleet for which that permit and vessel have been 
designated.
    (c) Quota share (QS) permit. A QS permit conveys a conditional 
privilege to a person to own QS or IBQ for designated species and 
species groups and to fish in the Shorebased IFQ Program described Sec. 
660.140, subpart D. A QS permit is not a limited entry permit. The 
provisions for the QS permit, including eligibility, renewal, change of 
permit ownership, accumulation limits, fees, and appeals are described 
at Sec. 660.140, subpart D.
    (d) First receiver site license. The first receiver site license 
conveys a conditional privilege to a first receiver to receive, 
purchase, or take custody, control or possession of landings from the 
Shorebased IFQ Program. The first receiver site license is issued for a 
person and a unique physical site consistent with the terms and 
conditions required to account for and weigh the landed species. A first 
receiver site license is not a limited entry permit. The provisions for 
the First Receiver Site License, including eligibility, registration, 
change of ownership, fees, and appeals are described at Sec. 
660.140(f), subpart D.
    (e) Coop permit--(1) MS coop permit. An MS coop permit conveys a 
conditional privilege to an eligible coop entity to receive and manage a 
coop's allocation of designated species and species groups. An MS coop 
permit is not a limited entry permit. The provisions for the MS coop 
permit, including eligibility, annual registration, fees, and appeals 
are described in the MS Coop Program at Sec. 660.150, subpart D.
    (2) C/P coop permit. A C/P coop permit conveys a conditional 
privilege to an eligible coop entity to receive and manage a coop's 
allocation of designated species and species groups. A C/

[[Page 46]]

P coop permit is not a limited entry permit. The provisions for the C/P 
coop permit, including eligibility, annual registration, fees, and 
appeals are described in the C/P Coop Program at Sec. 660.160, subpart 
D.
    (1) MS coop permit. [Reserved]
    (2) C/P coop permit. [Reserved]
    (f) Permit fees. The Regional Administrator is authorized to charge 
fees to cover administrative expenses related to issuance of permits 
including initial issuance, renewal, transfer, vessel registration, 
replacement, and appeals. The appropriate fee must accompany each 
application.
    (g) Permit appeals process--(1) General. For permit actions, 
including issuance, renewal, change in vessel registration, change in 
permit owner or permit holder, and endorsement upgrade, the Assistant 
Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries will make an initial 
administrative determination (IAD) on the action. In cases where the 
applicant disagrees with the IAD, the applicant may appeal that 
decision. Final decisions on appeals of IADs regarding issuance, 
renewal, change in vessel registration, change in permit owner or permit 
holder, and endorsement upgrade, will be made in writing by the Regional 
Administrator acting on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce and will 
state the reasons therefore. This section describes the procedures for 
appealing the IAD on permit actions made in this title under subparts C 
through G of part 660. Additional information regarding appeals of an 
IAD related to the trawl rationalization program is contained in the 
specific program sections under subpart D of part 660.
    (2) Who May Appeal? Only a person who received an IAD that 
disapproved any part of their application may file a written appeal. For 
purposes of this section, such person will be referred to as the 
``applicant.''
    (3) Submission of appeals. (i) The appeal must be in writing, must 
allege credible facts or circumstances to show why the criteria in this 
subpart have been met, and must include any relevant information or 
documentation to support the appeal.
    (ii) Appeals must be mailed or faxed to: National Marine Fisheries 
Service, Northwest Region, Sustainable Fisheries Division, ATTN: 
Appeals, 7600 Sand Point Way NE., Seattle, WA, 98115; Fax: 206-526-6426; 
or delivered to National Marine Fisheries Service at the same address.
    (4) Timing of appeals. (i) For permit actions related to the 
application and initial issuance process for QS permits, MS permits, MS/
CV endorsements, and C/P endorsements for the trawl rationalization 
program listed in subpart D of part 660, if an applicant appeals an IAD, 
the appeal must be postmarked, faxed, or hand delivered to NMFS no later 
than 60 calendar days after the date on the IAD. If the applicant does 
not appeal the IAD within 60 calendar days, the IAD becomes the final 
decision of the Regional Administrator acting on behalf of the Secretary 
of Commerce.
    (ii) For all other permit actions, if an applicant appeals an IAD, 
the appeal must be postmarked, faxed, or hand delivered to NMFS no later 
than 30 calendar days after the date on the IAD. If the applicant does 
not appeal the IAD within 30 calendar days, the IAD becomes the final 
decision of the Regional Administrator acting on behalf of the Secretary 
of Commerce.
    (iii) The time period to submit an appeal begins with the date on 
the IAD. If the last day of the time period is a Saturday, Sunday, or 
Federal holiday, the time period will extend to the close of business on 
the next business day.
    (5) Address of record. For purposes of the appeals process, NMFS 
will establish as the address of record, the address used by the 
applicant in initial correspondence to NMFS. Notifications of all 
actions affecting the applicant after establishing an address of record 
will be mailed to that address, unless the applicant provides NMFS, in 
writing, with any changes to that address. NMFS bears no responsibility 
if a notification is sent to the address of record and is not received 
because the applicant's actual address has changed without notification 
to NMFS.
    (6) Decisions on appeals. (i) For the appeal of an IAD related to 
the application and initial issuance process for the trawl 
rationalization program listed in subpart D of part 660, the Regional 
Administrator shall appoint an appeals

[[Page 47]]

officer. After determining there is sufficient information and that all 
procedural requirements have been met, the appeals officer will review 
the record and issue a recommendation on the appeal to the Regional 
Administrator, which shall be advisory only. The recommendation must be 
based solely on the record. Upon receiving the findings and 
recommendation, the Regional Administrator shall issue a final decision 
on the appeal acting on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce in 
accordance with paragraph (g)(6)(ii) of this section.
    (ii) Final decision on appeal. The Regional Administrator will issue 
a written decision on the appeal which is the final decision of the 
Secretary of Commerce.
    (7) Status of permits pending appeal. (i) For all permit actions, 
except those actions related to the application and initial issuance 
process for the trawl rationalization program listed in subpart D of 
part 660, the permit registration remains as it was prior to the request 
until the final decision has been made.
    (ii) For permit actions related to the application and initial 
issuance process for the trawl rationalization program listed in subpart 
D of part 660, the status of permits pending appeal is as follows:
    (A) For permit and endorsement qualifications and eligibility 
appeals (i.e., QS permit, MS permit, MS/CV endorsement, C/P 
endorsement), any permit or endorsement under appeal after December 31, 
2010 may not be used to fish in the Pacific Coast groundfish fishery 
until a final decision on the appeal has been made. If the permit or 
endorsement will be issued, the permit or endorsement will be effective 
upon approval, except for QS permits, which will be effective at the 
start of the next fishing year.
    (B) For a QS or IBQ amount for specific IFQ management unit species 
under appeal, the QS or IBQ amount for the IFQ species under appeal will 
remain as the amount assigned to the associated QS permit in the IAD). 
The QS permit may be used to fish in the Pacific Coast groundfish 
fishery with the QS or IBQ amounts assigned to the QS permit in the IAD. 
Once a final decision on the appeal has been made and if a revised QS or 
IBQ amount for a specific IFQ species will be assigned to the QS permit, 
the additional QS or IBQ amount associated with the QS permit will be 
effective at the start of the next calendar year following the final 
decision.
    (C) For a Pacific whiting catch history assignment associated with 
an MS/CV endorsement under appeal, the catch history assignment will 
remain as that previously assigned to the associated MS/CV-endorsed 
limited entry permit in the IAD). The MS/CV-endorsed limited entry 
permit may be used to fish in the Pacific Coast groundfish fishery with 
the catch history assigned to the MS/CV-endorsed permit in the IAD. Once 
a final decision on the appeal has been made, and if a revised catch 
history assignment will be issued, the additional Pacific whiting catch 
history assignment associated with the MS/CV endorsement will be 
effective at the start of the next calendar year following the final 
decision.
    (h) Permit sanctions. (1) All permits and licenses issued or applied 
for under Subparts C through G are subject to sanctions pursuant to the 
Magnuson-Stevens Act at 16 U.S.C. 1858(g) and 15 CFR part 904, subpart 
D.
    (2) All Shorebased IFQ Program permits (QS permit, first receiver 
site license), QS accounts, vessel accounts, and MS Coop Program permits 
(MS permit, MS/CV-endorsed permit, and MS coop permit), and C/P Coop 
Program permits (C/P-endorsed permit, C/P coop permit) issued under 
subpart D:
    (i) Are considered permits for the purposes of 16 U.S.C. 1857, 1858, 
and 1859;
    (ii) May be revoked, limited, or modified at any time in accordance 
with the Magnuson-Stevens Act, including revocation if the system is 
found to have jeopardized the sustainability of the stocks or the safety 
of fishermen;
    (iii) Shall not confer any right of compensation to the holder of 
such permits, licenses, and accounts if it is revoked, limited, or 
modified;
    (iv) Shall not create, or be construed to create, any right, title, 
or interest in or to any fish before the fish is harvested by the 
holder; and

[[Page 48]]

    (v) Shall be considered a grant of permission to the holder of the 
permit, license, or account to engage in activities permitted by such 
permit, license, or account.

Sec. 660.30  Compensation with fish for collecting resource information--EFPs.

    In addition to the reasons stated in Sec. 600.745(b)(1) of this 
chapter, an EFP may be issued under this subpart C for the purpose of 
compensating the owner or operator of a vessel for collecting resource 
information according to a protocol approved by NMFS. NMFS may issue an 
EFP allowing a vessel to retain fish as compensation in excess of trip 
limits or to be exempt from other specified management measures for the 
Pacific coast groundfish fishery.
    (a) Compensation EFP for vessels under contract with NMFS to conduct 
a resource survey. NMFS may issue an EFP to the owner or operator of a 
vessel that conducted a resource survey according to a contract with 
NMFS. A vessel's total compensation from all sources (in terms of 
dollars or amount of fish, including fish from survey samples or 
compensation fish) will be determined through normal Federal procurement 
procedures. The compensation EFP will specify the maximum amount or 
value of fish the vessel may take and retain after the resource survey 
is completed.
    (1) Competitive offers. NMFS may initiate a competitive solicitation 
(request for proposals or RFP) to select vessels to conduct resource 
surveys that use fish as full or partial compensation, following normal 
Federal procurement procedures.
    (2) Consultation and approval. At a Council meeting, NMFS will 
consult with the Council and receive public comment on upcoming resource 
surveys to be conducted if groundfish could be used as whole or partial 
compensation. Generally, compensation fish would be similar to surveyed 
species, but there may be reasons to provide payment with healthier, 
more abundant, less restricted stocks, or more easily targeted species. 
For example, NMFS may decline to pay a vessel with species that are, or 
are expected to be, overfished, or that are subject to overfishing, or 
that are unavoidably caught with species that are overfished or subject 
to overfishing. NMFS may also consider levels of discards, bycatch, and 
other factors. If the Council does not approve providing whole or 
partial compensation for the conduct of a survey, NMFS will not use 
fish, other than fish taken during the scientific research, as 
compensation for that survey. For each proposal, NMFS will present:
    (i) The maximum number of vessels expected or needed to conduct the 
survey,
    (ii) An estimate of the species and amount of fish likely to be 
needed as compensation,
    (iii) When the survey and compensation fish would be taken, and
    (iv) The year in which the compensation fish would be deducted from 
the ACL or ACT before determining the fishery harvest guideline or 
commercial harvest guideline.
    (3) Issuance of the compensation EFP. Upon successful completion of 
the survey, NMFS will issue a ``compensation EFP'' to the vessel if it 
has not been fully compensated. The procedures in Sec. 600.745(b)(1) 
through (b)(4) of this chapter do not apply to a compensation EFP issued 
under this subpart for the Pacific coast groundfish fishery (50 CFR part 
660, subparts C through G).
    (4) Terms and conditions of the compensation EFP. Conditions for 
disposition of bycatch or any excess catch, for reporting the value of 
the amount landed, and other appropriate terms and conditions may be 
specified in the EFP. Compensation fishing must occur during the period 
specified in the EFP, but no later than the end of September of the 
fishing year following the survey, and must be conducted according to 
the terms and conditions of the EFP.
    (5) Reporting the compensation catch. The compensation EFP may 
require the vessel owner or operator to keep separate records of 
compensation fishing and to submit them to NMFS within a specified 
period of time after the compensation fishing is completed.

[[Page 49]]

    (6) Accounting for the compensation catch. As part of the harvest 
specifications process, as described at Sec. 660.60, subpart C, NMFS 
will advise the Council of the amount of fish authorized to be retained 
under a compensation EFP, which then will be deducted from the next 
harvest specifications (ACLs or ACTs) set by the Council. Fish 
authorized in an EFP too late in the year to be deducted from the 
following year's ACLs or ACTs will be accounted for in the next 
management cycle where it is practicable to do so.
    (b) Compensation for commercial vessels collecting resource 
information under a standard EFP. NMFS may issue an EFP to allow a 
commercial fishing vessel to take and retain fish in excess of current 
management limits for the purpose of collecting resource information 
(Sec. 600.745(b) of this chapter). The EFP may include a compensation 
clause that allows the participating vessel to be compensated with fish 
for its efforts to collect resource information according to NMFS' 
approved protocol. If compensation with fish is requested in an EFP 
application, or proposed by NMFS, the following provisions apply in 
addition to those at Sec. 600.745(b) of this chapter.
    (1) Application. In addition to the requirements in Sec. 600.745(b) 
of this chapter, application for an EFP with a compensation clause must 
clearly state whether a vessel's participation is contingent upon 
compensation with groundfish and, if so, the minimum amount (in metric 
tons, round weight) and the species. As with other EFPs issued under 
Sec. 600.745 of this chapter, the application may be submitted by any 
individual, including a state fishery management agency or other 
research institution.
    (2) Denial. In addition to the reasons stated in Sec. 
600.745(b)(3)(iii) of this chapter, the application will be denied if 
the requested compensation fishery, species, or amount is unacceptable 
for reasons such as, but not limited to, the following: NMFS concludes 
the value of the resource information is not commensurate with the value 
of the compensation fish; the proposed compensation involves species 
that are (or are expected to be) overfished or subject to overfishing, 
fishing in times or areas where fishing is otherwise prohibited or 
severely restricted, or fishing for species that would involve 
unavoidable bycatch of species that are overfished or subject to 
overfishing; or NMFS concludes the information can reasonably be 
obtained at a less cost to the resource.
    (3) Window period for other applications. If the Regional 
Administrator or designee agrees that compensation should be considered, 
and that more than a minor amount would be used as compensation, then a 
window period will be announced in the Federal Register during which 
additional participants will have an opportunity to apply. This 
notification would be made at the same time as announcement of receipt 
of the application and request for comments required under Sec. 
600.745(b). If there are more qualified applicants than needed for a 
particular time and area, NMFS will choose among the qualified vessels, 
either randomly, in order of receipt of the completed application, or by 
other impartial selection methods. If the permit applicant is a state, 
university, or Federal entity other than NMFS, and NMFS approves the 
selection method, the permit applicant may choose among the qualified 
vessels, either randomly, in order of receipt of the vessel application, 
or by other impartial selection methods.
    (4) Terms and conditions. The EFP will specify the amounts that may 
be taken as scientific samples and as compensation, the time period 
during which the compensation fishing must occur, management measures 
that NMFS will waive for a vessel fishing under the EFP, and other terms 
and conditions appropriate to the fishery and the collection of resource 
information. NMFS may require compensation fishing to occur on the same 
trip that the resource information is collected.
    (5) Accounting for the catch. Samples taken under this EFP, as well 
as any compensation fish, count toward the current year's catch or 
landings.

Sec. 660.40  Overfished species rebuilding plans.

    For each overfished groundfish stock with an approved rebuilding 
plan, this section contains the standards to be used to establish annual 
or biennial ACLs, specifically the target date for rebuilding the stock 
to its MSY level and the harvest control rule to be used to rebuild the 
stock. The harvest control rule is expressed as a ``Spawning Potential 
Ratio'' or ``SPR'' harvest rate.
    (a) Bocaccio. The target year for rebuilding the bocaccio stock 
south of 40[deg]10[min] N. latitude to BMSY is 2022. The 
harvest control rule to be used to rebuild the southern bocaccio stock 
is an annual SPR harvest rate of 77.7 percent.
    (b) Canary rockfish. The target year for rebuilding the canary 
rockfish stock to BMSY is 2027. The harvest control rule to 
be used to rebuild the canary rockfish stock is an annual SPR harvest 
rate of 88.7 percent.
    (c) Cowcod. The target year for rebuilding the cowcod stock south of 
40[deg]10[min] N. latitude to BMSY is 2068. The harvest 
control rule to be used to rebuild the cowcod stock is an annual SPR 
harvest rate of 82.7 percent.
    (d) Darkblotched rockfish. The target year for rebuilding the 
darkblotched rockfish stock to BMSY is 2025. The harvest 
control rule to be used to rebuild the darkblotched rockfish stock is an 
annual SPR harvest rate of 64.9 percent.
    (e) Pacific Ocean Perch (POP). The target year for rebuilding the 
POP stock to BMSY is 2020. The harvest control rule to be 
used to rebuild the POP stock is an annual SPR harvest rate of 86.4 
percent.
    (f) Petrale Sole. The target year for rebuilding the petrale sole 
stock to BMSY is 2016. The harvest control rule is to set the 
ACL equal to the ABC, which corresponds to an annual SPR harvest rate of 
31 percent in 2011.
    (g) Widow rockfish. The target year for rebuilding the widow 
rockfish stock to BMSY is 2010. The harvest control rule is a 
constant catch of 600 mt, which corresponds to an annual SPR harvest 
rate of 91.7 percent in 2011.
    (h) Yelloweye rockfish. The target year for rebuilding the yelloweye 
rockfish stock to BMSY is 2074. The harvest control rule to be used to 
rebuild the yelloweye rockfish stock is an annual SPR harvest rate of 
76.0 percent.

Sec. 660.50  Pacific Coast treaty Indian fisheries.

    (a) Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribes have treaty rights. Pacific 
Coast treaty Indian tribes have treaty rights to harvest groundfish in 
their usual and accustomed fishing areas in U.S. waters. In 1994, the 
United States formally recognized that the four Washington coastal 
treaty Indian tribes (Makah, Quileute, Hoh, and Quinault) have treaty 
rights to fish for groundfish in the Pacific Ocean, and concluded that, 
in general terms, the quantification of those rights is 50 percent of 
the harvestable surplus of groundfish that pass through the tribes U&A 
fishing areas.
    (b) Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribes. For the purposes of this 
part, Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribes means the Hoh, Makah, and 
Quileute Indian Tribes and the Quinault Indian Nation.
    (c) Usual and accustomed fishing areas (U&A). The Pacific Coast 
treaty Indian tribes' U&A fishing areas within the fishery management 
area (FMA) are set out below in paragraphs (c)(1) through (c)(4) of this 
section. Boundaries of a tribe's fishing area may be revised as ordered 
by a Federal court.
    (1) Makah. That portion of the FMA north of 48[deg]02.25[min] N. 
lat. (Norwegian Memorial) and east of 125[deg]44[min] W. long.
    (2) Quileute. That portion of the FMA between 48[deg]07.60[min] N. 
lat. (Sand Point) and 47[deg]31.70[min] N. lat. (Queets River) and east 
of 125[deg]44[min] W. long.
    (3) Hoh. That portion of the FMA between 47[deg]54.30[min] N. lat. 
(Quillayute River) and 47[deg]21[min] N. lat. (Quinault River) and east 
of 125[deg]44[min] W. long.
    (4) Quinault. That portion of the FMA between 47[deg]40.10[min] N. 
lat. (Destruction Island) and 46[deg]53.30[min] N. lat. (Point Chehalis) 
and east of 125[deg]44[min] W. long.
    (d) Procedures. The rights referred to in paragraph (a) of this 
section will be implemented by the Secretary, after consideration of the 
tribal request, the recommendation of the Council, and the comments of 
the public. The rights will be implemented either through an

[[Page 51]]

allocation or set-aside of fish that will be managed by the tribes, or 
through regulations in this section that will apply specifically to the 
tribal fisheries.
    (1) Tribal allocations, set-asides, and regulations. An allocation, 
set-aside or a regulation specific to the tribes shall be initiated by a 
written request from a Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe to the Regional 
Administrator, prior to the first Council meeting in which biennial 
harvest specifications and management measures are discussed for an 
upcoming biennial management period. The Secretary generally will 
announce the annual tribal allocations at the same time as the 
announcement of the harvest specifications.
    (2) Co-management. The Secretary recognizes the sovereign status and 
co-manager role of Indian tribes over shared Federal and tribal fishery 
resources. Accordingly, the Secretary will develop tribal allocations 
and regulations under this paragraph in consultation with the affected 
tribe(s) and, insofar as possible, with tribal consensus.
    (e) Fishing by a member of a Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe. A 
member of a Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe fishing under this section 
and within their U&A fishing area is not subject to the provisions of 
other sections of subparts C through G of this part.
    (1) Identification. A valid treaty Indian identification card issued 
pursuant to 25 CFR part 249, subpart A, is prima facie evidence that the 
holder is a member of the Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe named on the 
card.
    (2) Permits. A limited entry permit described under Sec. 660.25, 
subpart C is not required for a member of a Pacific Coast treaty Indian 
tribe to fish in a tribal fishery described in paragraph (d) of this 
section.
    (3) Federal and tribal laws and regulations. Any member of a Pacific 
Coast treaty Indian tribe must comply with this section, and with any 
applicable tribal law and regulation, when participating in a tribal 
groundfish fishery described in this section.
    (4) Fishing outside the U&A or without a groundfish allocation. 
Fishing by a member of a Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe outside the 
applicable Indian tribe's usual and accustomed fishing area, or for a 
species of groundfish not covered by an allocation, set-aside, or 
regulation under this section, is subject to the regulations in the 
other sections of subpart C through subpart G of this part. Treaty 
fisheries operating within tribal allocations are prohibited from 
operating outside U&A fishing areas.
    (f) Pacific Coast treaty Indian fisheries allocations and harvest 
guidelines. The tribal harvest guideline for black rockfish is provided 
in paragraph (f)(1) of this section. Tribal fishery allocations for 
sablefish are provided in paragraph (f)(2) of this section, and Pacific 
whiting are provided in paragraph (f)(4) of this section. Trip limits 
for certain species were recommended by the tribes and the Council and 
are specified here with the tribal allocations.
    (1) Black rockfish. (i) Harvest guidelines for commercial harvests 
of black rockfish by members of the Pacific Coast Indian tribes using 
hook and line gear will be established biennially for two subsequent 
one-year periods for the areas between the U.S.-Canadian border and Cape 
Alava (48[deg]09.50[min] N. lat.) and between Destruction Island 
(47[deg]40[min] N. lat.) and Leadbetter Point (46[deg]38.17[min] N. 
lat.), in accordance with the procedures for implementing harvest 
specifications and management measures. Pacific Coast treaty Indians 
fishing for black rockfish in these areas under these harvest guidelines 
are subject to the provisions in this section, and not to the 
restrictions in other sections of subparts C through G of this part.
    (ii) For the commercial harvest of black rockfish off Washington 
State, a treaty Indian tribes' harvest guideline is set at 30,000 lb 
(13,608 kg) for the area north of Cape Alava, WA (48[deg]09.50[min] N. 
lat) and 10,000 lb (4,536 kg) for the area between Destruction Island, 
WA (47[deg]40[min] N. lat.) and Leadbetter Point, WA (46[deg]38.17[min] 
N. lat.). This harvest guideline applies and is available to the Pacific 
Coast treaty Indian tribes. There are no tribal harvest restrictions for 
black rockfish in the area between Cape Alava and Destruction Island.
    (2) Sablefish. (i) The sablefish allocation to Pacific coast treaty 
Indian Tribes is 10 percent of the sablefish ACL for the area north of 
36[deg] N. lat.

[[Page 52]]

This allocation represents the total amount available to the treaty 
Indian fisheries before deductions for discard mortality.
    (ii) The Tribal allocation is 552 mt in 2011 and 535 in 2012 per 
year. This allocation is, for each year, 10 percent of the Monterey 
through Vancouver area (North of 36[deg] N. lat.) ACL. The Tribal 
allocation is reduced by 1.5 percent for estimated discard mortality.
    (3) Lingcod. Lingcod taken in the treaty fisheries are subject to an 
overall expected total lingcod catch of 250 mt.
    (4) Pacific whiting. The tribal allocation for 2011 is 66,908 mt.
    (5) Pacific cod. There is a tribal harvest guideline of 400 mt of 
Pacific cod. The tribes will manage their fisheries to stay within this 
harvest guideline.
    (g) Washington coastal tribal fisheries management measures--(1) 
Rockfish. The tribes will require full retention of all overfished 
rockfish species and all other marketable rockfish species during treaty 
fisheries.
    (2) Thornyheads. The Tribes will manage their fisheries to the 
following limits for shortspine and longspine thornyheads. The limits 
would be accumulated across vessels into a cumulative fleetwide harvest 
target for the year. The limits available to individual fishermen will 
then be adjusted inseason to stay within the overall harvest target as 
well as estimated impacts to overfished species. The annual following 
limits apply:
    (i) Shortspine thornyhead cumulative trip limits are 17,000-lb 
(7,711-kg) per 2 months.
    (ii) Longspine thornyhead cumulative trip limits are 22,000-lb 
(9,979-kg) per 2 months.
    (3) Canary rockfish--are subject to a 300-lb (136-kg) trip limit.
    (4) Yelloweye rockfish--are subject to a 100-lb (45-kg) trip limit.
    (5) Yellowtail and widow rockfish. The Makah Tribe will manage the 
midwater trawl fisheries as follows: Yellowtail rockfish taken in the 
directed tribal mid-water trawl fisheries are subject to a catch limit 
of 677 mt for the entire fleet. Landings of widow rockfish must not 
exceed 10 percent of the weight of yellowtail rockfish landed, for a 
given vessel, throughout the year. These limits may be adjusted by the 
tribe inseason to minimize the incidental catch of canary rockfish and 
widow rockfish, provided the catch of yellowtail rockfish does not 
exceed 677 mt for the fleet.
    (6) Other rockfish. Other rockfish, including minor nearshore, minor 
shelf, and minor slope rockfish groups are subject to a 300-lb (136-kg) 
trip limit per species or species group, or to the non-tribal limited 
entry trip limit for those species if those limits are less restrictive 
than 300-lb (136 kg) per trip.
    (7) Flatfish and other fish. Treaty fishing vessels using bottom 
trawl gear are subject to the following limits: For Dover sole, English 
sole, other flatfish 110,000 lbs (49,895 kg) per 2 months; and for 
arrowtooth flounder 150,000 lbs (68,039 kg) per 2 months. The Dover sole 
and arrowtooth limits in place at the beginning of the season will be 
combined across periods and the fleet to create a cumulative harvest 
target. The limits available to individual vessels will then be adjusted 
inseason to stay within the overall harvest target as well as estimated 
impacts to overfished species. For petrale sole, treaty fishing vessels 
are restricted to a 50,000 lb (22,680 kg) per 2 months limit for the 
entire year. Trawl vessels are restricted to using small footrope trawl 
gear.
    (8) Pacific whiting. Tribal whiting processed at-sea by non-tribal 
vessels, must be transferred within the tribal U&A from a member of a 
Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe fishing under this section.
    (9) Spiny dogfish. The tribes will manage their spiny dogfish 
fishery within the limited entry trip limits for the non-tribal 
fisheries.
    (10) Groundfish without a tribal allocation. Makah tribal members 
may use midwater trawl gear to take and retain groundfish for which 
there is no tribal allocation and will be subject to the trip landing 
and frequency and size limits applicable to the limited entry fishery.
    (11) EFH. Measures implemented to minimize adverse impacts to 
groundfish EFH, as described in Sec. 660.12 of this

[[Page 53]]

subpart, do not apply to tribal fisheries in their U&A fishing areas.

Sec. 660.55  Allocations.

    (a) General. An allocation is the apportionment of a harvest 
privilege for a specific purpose, to a particular person, group of 
persons, or fishery sector. The opportunity to harvest Pacific Coast 
groundfish is allocated among participants in the fishery when the ACLs 
for a given year are established in the biennial harvest specifications. 
For any stock that has been declared overfished, any formal allocation 
may be temporarily revised for the duration of the rebuilding period. 
For certain species, primarily trawl-dominant species, beginning with 
the 2011-2012 biennial specifications process, separate allocations for 
the trawl and nontrawl fishery (which for this purpose includes limited 
entry fixed gear, directed open access, and recreational fisheries) will 
be established biennially or annually using the standards and procedures 
described in Chapter 6 of the PCGFMP. Chapter 6 of the PCGFMP provides 
the allocation structure and percentages for species allocated between 
the trawl and nontrawl fisheries. Also, separate allocations for the 
limited entry and open access fisheries may be established using the 
procedures described in Chapters 6 and 11 of the PCGFMP and this 
subpart. Allocation of sablefish north of 36[deg] N. lat. is described 
in paragraph (h) of this section and in the PCGFMP. Allocation of 
Pacific whiting is described in paragraph (i) of this section and in the 
PCGFMP. Allocation of black rockfish is described in paragraph (l) of 
this section. Allocation of Pacific halibut bycatch is described in 
paragraph (m) of this section. Allocations not specified in the PCGFMP 
are established in regulation through the biennial harvest 
specifications and are listed in Tables 1 a through d and Tables 2 a 
through d of this subpart.
    (b) Fishery harvest guidelines and reductions made prior to fishery 
allocations. Beginning with the 2011-2012 biennial specifications 
process and prior to the setting of fishery allocations, the ACL or ACT 
when specified is reduced by the Pacific Coast treaty Indian Tribal 
harvest (allocations, set-asides, and estimated harvest under 
regulations at Sec. 660.50); projected scientific research catch of all 
groundfish species, estimates of fishing mortality in non-groundfish 
fisheries and, as necessary, set-asides for EFPs. The remaining amount 
after these deductions is the fishery harvest guideline or quota. (note: 
recreational estimates are not deducted here).
    (1) Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribal allocations, set-asides, and 
regulations are specified during the biennial harvest specifications 
process and are found at Sec. 660.50 and in Tables 1a and 2a of this 
subpart.
    (2) Scientific research catch results from scientific research 
activity as defined in regulations at Sec. 600.10.
    (3) Estimates of fishing mortality in non-groundfish fisheries are 
based on historical catch and projected fishing activities.
    (4) EFPs are authorized and governed by regulations at Sec. Sec. 
660.60(f) and 600.745.
    (c) Trawl/nontrawl allocations. (1) Beginning with the 2011-2012 
biennial specifications process, the fishery harvest guideline or quota, 
may be divided into allocations for groundfish trawl and nontrawl 
(limited entry fixed gear, open access, and recreational) fisheries. IFQ 
species not listed in the table below will be allocated between the 
trawl and nontrawl fisheries through the biennial harvest specifications 
process. Species/species groups and areas allocated between the trawl 
and nontrawl fisheries listed in Chapter 6, Table 6-1 of the PCGFMP are 
allocated based on the percentages that follow:

  Allocation Percentages for Limited Entry Trawl and Non-Trawl Sectors
         Specified for FMP Groundfish Stocks and Stock Complexes

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (i) Trawl fishery allocation. The allocation for the limited entry 
trawl fishery is derived by applying the trawl allocation percentage by 
species/species group and area as specified in paragraph (c) of this 
section and as specified during the biennial harvest specifications 
process to the fishery harvest guideline for that species/species group 
and area. For IFQ species other than darkblotched rockfish, Pacific 
Ocean Perch, and widow rockfish, the trawl allocation will be further 
subdivided among the trawl sectors (MS, C/P, and IFQ) as specified in 
Sec. Sec. 660.140, 660.150, and 660.160 of subpart D. For darkblotched 
rockfish, Pacific Ocean Perch, and widow rockfish, the trawl allocation 
is further subdivided among the trawl sectors (MS, C/P, and IFQ) as 
follows:
    (A) Darkblotched rockfish. Allocate 9 percent or 25 mt, whichever is 
greater, of the total trawl allocation of darkblotched rockfish to the 
whiting fisheries (MS, C/P, and IFQ combined). The distribution of the 
whiting trawl allocation of darkblotched to each sector (MS, C/P, and 
IFQ) will be done pro rata relative to the sectors' whiting allocation. 
After deducting allocations for the whiting fisheries, allocate the 
remainder of the trawl allocation to the nonwhiting fishery.
    (B) Pacific Ocean Perch (POP). Allocate 17 percent or 30 mt, 
whichever is greater, of the total trawl allocation of Pacific ocean 
perch to the whiting fisheries (MS, C/P, and IFQ combined). The 
distribution of the whiting trawl allocation of POP to each sector (MS, 
C/P, and IFQ) will be done pro rata relative to the sectors' whiting 
allocation. After deducting allocations for the whiting fisheries, 
allocate the remainder of the trawl allocation to the nonwhiting 
fishery.
    (C) Widow rockfish. Allocate 52 percent of the total trawl 
allocation of widow rockfish to the whiting sectors if the stock is 
under rebuilding or 10 percent of the total trawl allocation or 500 mt 
of the trawl allocation to the whiting sectors, whichever is greater, if 
the stock is rebuilt. The latter allocation scheme automatically kicks 
in when widow rockfish is declared rebuilt. The distribution of the 
whiting trawl allocation of widow to each sector (MS, C/P, and IFQ) will 
be done pro rata relative to the sectors' whiting allocation. After 
deducting allocations for the whiting fisheries, allocate the remainder 
of the trawl allocation to the nonwhiting fishery.
    (ii) Nontrawl fishery allocation. The allocation for the nontrawl 
fishery is the fishery harvest guideline minus the allocation of the 
species/species group and area to the trawl fishery. These amounts will 
equal the nontrawl allocation percentage or amount by species for 
species listed in paragraph (c) of

[[Page 55]]

this section and the nontrawl allocation percentage from the biennial 
harvest specifications for other IFQ species. The nontrawl allocation 
will be shared between the limited entry fixed gear, open access, and 
recreational fisheries as specified through the biennial harvest 
specifications process and consistent with allocations in the PCGFMP.
    (2) [Reserved]
    (d) Commercial harvest guidelines. Beginning with the 2011-2012 
biennial specifications process, to derive the commercial harvest 
guideline, the fishery harvest guideline is further reduced by the 
recreational set-asides. The commercial harvest guideline is then 
allocated between the limited entry fishery (both trawl and fixed gear) 
and the directed open access fishery, as appropriate.
    (e) Limited entry (LE)/open access (OA) allocations--(1) LE/OA 
allocation percentages. The allocations between the limited entry and 
open access fisheries are based on standards from the PCGFMP.
    (2) Species with LE/OA allocations. For species with LE/OA 
allocations, the allocation between the limited entry (both trawl and 
fixed gear) and the open access fisheries is determined by applying the 
percentage for those species with a LE/OA allocation to the commercial 
harvest guideline plus the amount set-aside for the non-groundfish 
fisheries.
    (i) Limited entry allocation. The allocation for the limited entry 
fishery is the commercial harvest guideline minus any allocation to the 
directed open access fishery.
    (ii) Open access allocation. The allocation for the open access 
fishery is derived by applying the open access allocation percentage to 
the annual commercial harvest guideline or quota plus the non-groundfish 
fishery (i.e., incidental open access fishery) amount described in 
paragraph (b) of this section. The result is the total open access 
allocation. The portion that is set-aside for the non-groundfish 
fisheries is deducted and the remainder is the directed open access 
portion. For management areas or stocks for which quotas or harvest 
guidelines for a stock are not fully utilized, no separate allocation 
will be established for the open access fishery until it is projected 
that the allowable catch for a species will be reached.
    (A) Open access allocation percentage. For each species with a 
harvest guideline or quota, the initial open access allocation 
percentage is calculated by:
    (1) Computing the total catch for that species during the window 
period (July 11, 1984 through August 1, 1988) for the limited entry 
program by any vessel that did not initially receive a limited entry 
permit.
    (2) Dividing that amount by the total catch during the window period 
by all gear.
    (3) The guidelines in this paragraph apply to recalculation of the 
open access allocation percentage. Any recalculated allocation 
percentage will be used in calculating the following biennial fishing 
period's open access allocation.
    (B) [Reserved]
    (f) Catch accounting. Catch accounting refers to how the catch in a 
fishery is monitored against the allocations described in this section. 
For species with trawl/nontrawl allocations, catch of those species are 
counted against the trawl/nontrawl allocations as explained in paragraph 
(f)(1) of this section. For species with limited entry/open access 
allocations in a given biennial cycle, catch of those species are 
counted against the limited entry/open access allocations as explained 
in paragraph (f)(2) of this section.
    (1) Between the trawl and nontrawl fisheries--(i) Catch accounting 
for the trawl allocation. Any groundfish caught by a vessel registered 
to a limited entry trawl-endorsed permit will be counted against the 
trawl allocation while they are declared in to a groundfish limited 
entry trawl fishery and while the applicable trawl fishery listed in 
subpart D of this part for that vessel's limited entry permit is open.
    (ii) Catch accounting for the nontrawl allocation. All groundfish 
caught by a vessel not registered to a limited entry permit and not 
fishing in the non-groundfish fishery will be counted against the 
nontrawl allocation. All groundfish caught by a vessel registered to a 
limited entry permit when the fishery for a vessel's limited entry

[[Page 56]]

permit has closed or they are not declared in to a limited entry 
fishery, will be counted against the nontrawl allocation, unless they 
are declared in to a non-groundfish fishery. Catch by vessels fishing in 
the non-groundfish fishery, as defined at Sec. 660.11, will be 
accounted for in the estimated mortality in the non-groundfish fishery 
that is deducted from the ACL or ACT when specified.
    (2) The commercial harvest guideline for Pacific whiting is 
allocated among three sectors, as follows: 34 percent for the C/P Coop 
Program; 24 percent for the MS Coop Program; and 42 percent for the 
Shore based IFQ Program. No more than 5 percent of the Shore based IFQ 
Program allocation may be taken and retained south of 42[deg] N. lat. 
before the start of the primary Pacific whiting season north of 42[deg] 
N. lat. Specific sector allocations for a given calendar year are found 
in Tables 1a through c and 2a through c of this subpart. Set asides for 
other species for the at-sea whiting fishery for a given calendar year 
are found in Tables 1d and 2d of this subpart.
    (g) Recreational fisheries. Recreational fishing for groundfish is 
outside the scope of, and not affected by, the regulations governing 
limited entry and open access fisheries. Certain amounts of groundfish 
will be set aside for the recreational fishery during the biennial 
specifications process. These amounts will be estimated prior to 
dividing the commercial harvest guideline between the limited entry and 
open access fisheries.
    (h) Sablefish Allocations (north of 36[deg] N. lat.). The 
allocations of sablefish north of 36[deg] N. lat. described in paragraph 
(h) of this section are specified in Chapter 6 of the PCGFMP.
    (1) Tribal/nontribal allocation. The sablefish allocation to Pacific 
coast treaty Indian tribes is identified at Sec. 660.50(f)(2), subpart 
C. The remainder is available to the nontribal fishery (limited entry, 
open access (directed and incidental), and research).
    (2) Between the limited entry and open access fisheries. The 
allocation of sablefish after tribal deductions is further reduced by 
the estimated total mortality of sablefish in research and incidental 
catch in non-groundfish fisheries (incidental open access); the 
remaining yield (nontribal share) is divided between open access and 
limited entry fisheries. The limited entry fishery allocation is 90.6 
percent and the open access allocation is 9.4 percent.
    (3) Between the limited entry trawl and limited entry fixed gear 
fisheries. The limited entry sablefish allocation is further allocated 
58 percent to the trawl fishery and 42 percent to the limited entry 
fixed gear (longline and pot/trap) fishery.
    (4) Between the limited entry fixed gear primary season and daily 
trip limit fisheries. Within the limited entry fixed gear fishery 
allocation, 85 percent is reserved for the primary season described in 
Sec. 660.231, subpart E, leaving 15 percent for the limited entry daily 
trip limit fishery described in Sec. 660.232, subpart E.
    (5) Ratios between tiers for sablefish-endorsed limited entry 
permits. The Regional Administrator will biennially or annually 
calculate the size of the cumulative trip limit for each of the three 
tiers associated with the sablefish endorsement such that the ratio of 
limits between the tiers is approximately 1:1.75:3.85 for Tier 3:Tier 
2:Tier 1, respectively. The size of the cumulative trip limits will vary 
depending on the amount of sablefish available for the primary fishery 
and on estimated discard mortality rates within the fishery. The size of 
the cumulative trip limits for the three tiers in the primary fishery 
will be announced in Sec. 660.231(b)(3), subpart E.
    (i) Pacific whiting allocation. The allocation structure and 
percentages for Pacific whiting are described in the PCGFMP.
    (1) Annual treaty tribal Pacific whiting allocations are provided in 
Sec. 660.50, subpart C.
    (2) The commercial harvest guideline for Pacific whiting is 
allocated among three sectors, as follows: 34 percent for the C/P Coop 
Program; 24 percent for the MS Coop Program; and 42 percent for the 
Shore based IFQ Program. No more than 5 percent of the Shore based IFQ 
Program allocation may be taken and retained south of 42[deg] N. lat. 
before the start of the primary Pacific whiting season north of 42[deg] 
N. lat. Specific sector allocations for a given calendar

[[Page 57]]

year are found in Tables 1a and 2a of this subpart. Set asides for other 
species for the at-sea whiting fishery for a given calendar year are 
found in Tables 1d and 2d of this subpart.
    (j) Fishery set-asides. Annual set-asides are not formal allocations 
but they are amounts which are not available to the other fisheries 
during the fishing year. For the catcher/processor and mothership 
sectors of the at-sea Pacific whiting fishery, set-asides will be 
deducted from the limited entry trawl fishery allocation. Set-aside 
amounts will be specified in Tables 1a through 2d of this subpart and 
may be adjusted through the biennial harvest specifications and 
management measures process.
    (k) Exempted fishing permit set-asides. Annual set-asides for EFPs 
described at Sec. Sec. 660.60(f) and 600.745, will be deducted from the 
ACL or ACT when specified. Set-aside amounts will be adjusted through 
the biennial harvest specifications and management measures process.
    (l) Black rockfish harvest guideline. The commercial tribal harvest 
guideline for black rockfish off Washington State is specified at Sec. 
660.50(f)(1), subpart C.
    (m) Pacific halibut bycatch allocation. The Pacific halibut fishery 
off Washington, Oregon and California (Area 2A in the halibut 
regulations) is managed under regulations at 50 CFR part 300, subpart E. 
Beginning with the 2011-2012 biennial specifications process, the PCGFMP 
sets a trawl mortality bycatch limit for legal size halibut of 130,000 
pounds, net weight, for the first four years of trawl rationalization 
and not to exceed 100,000 pounds starting in the fifth year. This total 
bycatch limit may be adjusted downward or upward through the biennial 
specifications and management measures process. Part of the overall 
total catch limit is a set-aside of 10 mt of Pacific halibut (legal and 
sublegal, round weight), to accommodate bycatch in the at-sea Pacific 
whiting fishery and in the shorebased trawl fishery south of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat. (estimated to be approximately 5 mt each).

Sec. 660.60  Specifications and management measures.

    (a) General. NMFS will establish and adjust specifications and 
management measures biennially or annually and during the fishing year. 
Management of the Pacific Coast groundfish fishery will be conducted 
consistent with the standards and procedures in the PCGFMP and other 
applicable law. The PCGFMP is available from the Regional Administrator 
or the Council. Regulations under this subpart may be promulgated, 
removed, or revised during the fishing year. Any such action will be 
made according to the framework standards and procedures in the PCGFMP 
and other applicable law, and will be published in the Federal Register.
    (b) Biennial actions. The Pacific Coast Groundfish fishery is 
managed on a biennial, calendar year basis. Harvest specifications and 
management measures will be announced biennially, with the harvest 
specifications for each species or species group set for two sequential 
calendar years. In general, management measures are designed to achieve, 
but not exceed, the specifications, particularly optimum yields (harvest 
guidelines and quotas), fishery harvest guidelines, commercial harvest 
guidelines and quotas, limited entry and open access allocations, or 
other approved fishery allocations, and to protect overfished and 
depleted stocks. Management measures will be designed to take into 
account the co-occurrence ratios of target species with overfished 
species, and will select measures that will minimize bycatch to the 
extent practicable.
    (c) Routine management measures. In addition to the catch 
restrictions in subparts D through G of this part, other catch 
restrictions that are likely to be adjusted on a biennial or more 
frequent basis may be imposed and announced by a single notification in 
the Federal Register if good cause exists under the APA to waive notice 
and

[[Page 58]]

comment, and if they have been designated as routine through the two-
meeting process described in the PCGFMP. Routine management measures 
that may be revised during the fishing year via this process are 
implemented in paragraph (h) of this section, and in subparts D through 
G of this part, including Tables 1 (North) and 1 (South) of subpart D, 
Tables 2 (North) and 2 (South) of subpart E, Tables 3 (North) and 3 
(South) of subpart F. Most trip, bag, and size limits, and area closures 
in the groundfish fishery have been designated ``routine,'' which means 
they may be changed rapidly after a single Council meeting. Council 
meetings are held in the months of March, April, June, September, and 
November. Inseason changes to routine management measures are announced 
in the Federal Register pursuant to the requirements of the 
Administrative Procedure Act (APA). Changes to trip limits are effective 
at the times stated in the Federal Register. Once a change is effective, 
it is illegal to take and retain, possess, or land more fish than 
allowed under the new trip limit. This means that, unless otherwise 
announced in the Federal Register, offloading must begin before the time 
a fishery closes or a more restrictive trip limit takes effect. The 
following catch restrictions have been designated as routine:
    (1) Commercial Limited Entry and Open Access Fisheries. (i) Trip 
landing and frequency limits, size limits, all gear. Trip landing and 
frequency limits have been designated as routine for the following 
species or species groups: widow rockfish, canary rockfish, yellowtail 
rockfish, Pacific ocean perch, yelloweye rockfish, black rockfish, blue 
rockfish, splitnose rockfish, chilipepper rockfish, bocaccio, cowcod, 
minor nearshore rockfish or shallow and deeper minor nearshore rockfish, 
shelf or minor shelf rockfish, and minor slope rockfish; DTS complex 
which is composed of Dover sole, sablefish, shortspine thornyheads, 
longspine thornyheads; petrale sole, rex sole, arrowtooth flounder, 
Pacific sanddabs, and the other flatfish complex, which is composed of 
those species plus any other flatfish species listed at Sec. 660.11, 
subpart C; Pacific whiting; lingcod; Pacific cod; spiny dogfish; cabezon 
in Oregon and California and ``other fish'' as a complex consisting of 
all groundfish species listed at Sec. 660.11, subpart C and not 
otherwise listed as a distinct species or species group. Specific to the 
IFQ fishery, sub-limits or aggregate limits may be specified for the 
following species: longnose skate, big skate, California skate, 
California scorpionfish, leopard shark, soupfin shark, finescale 
codling, Pacific rattail (grenadier), ratfish, kelp greenling, 
shortbelly, and cabezon in Washington. Size limits have been designated 
as routine for sablefish and lingcod. Trip landing and frequency limits 
and size limits for species with those limits designated as routine may 
be imposed or adjusted on a biennial or more frequent basis for the 
purpose of keeping landings within the harvest levels announced by NMFS, 
and for the other purposes given in paragraphs (c)(1)(i)(A) and (B) of 
this section.
    (A) Trip landing and frequency limits. To extend the fishing season; 
to minimize disruption of traditional fishing and marketing patterns; to 
reduce discards; to discourage target fishing while allowing small 
incidental catches to be landed; to protect overfished species; to allow 
small fisheries to operate outside the normal season; and, for the open 
access fishery only, to maintain landings at the historical proportions 
during the 1984-88 window period.
    (B) Size limits. To protect juvenile fish; to extend the fishing 
season.
    (ii) Differential trip landing limits and frequency limits based on 
gear type, closed seasons, and bycatch limits. Trip landing and 
frequency limits that differ by gear type and closed seasons may be 
imposed or adjusted on a biennial or more frequent basis for the purpose 
of rebuilding and protecting overfished or depleted stocks.
    (iii) Type of limited entry trawl gear on board. Limits on the type 
of limited entry trawl gear on board a vessel may be imposed on a 
biennial or more frequent basis. Requirements and restrictions on 
limited entry trawl gear type are found at Sec. 660.130(b).
    (2) Recreational fisheries all gear types. Routine management 
measures for all groundfish species, separately or in any combination, 
include bag limits, size

[[Page 59]]

limits, time/area closures, boat limits, hook limits, and dressing 
requirements. All routine management measures on recreational fisheries 
are intended to keep landings within the harvest levels announced by 
NMFS, to rebuild and protect overfished or depleted species, and to 
maintain consistency with State regulations, and for the other purposes 
set forth in this section.
    (i) Bag limits. To spread the available catch over a large number of 
anglers; to protect and rebuild overfished species; to avoid waste.
    (ii) Size limits. To protect juvenile fish; to protect and rebuild 
overfished species; to enhance the quality of the recreational fishing 
experience.
    (iii) Season duration restrictions. To spread the available catch 
over a large number of anglers; to protect and rebuild overfished 
species; to avoid waste; to enhance the quality of the recreational 
fishing experience.
    (3) All fisheries, all gear types, depth-based management measures. 
Depth-based management measures, particularly the setting of closed 
areas known as Groundfish Conservation Areas, may be implemented in any 
fishery that takes groundfish directly or incidentally. Depth-based 
management measures are set using specific boundary lines that 
approximate depth contours with latitude/longitude waypoints found at 
Sec. 660.70 through 660.74. Depth-based management measures and the 
setting of closed areas may be used: to protect and rebuild overfished 
stocks, to prevent the overfishing of any groundfish species by 
minimizing the direct or incidental catch of that species, to minimize 
the incidental harvest of any protected or prohibited species taken in 
the groundfish fishery, to extend the fishing season; for the commercial 
fisheries, to minimize disruption of traditional fishing and marketing 
patterns; for the recreational fisheries, to spread the available catch 
over a large number of anglers; to discourage target fishing while 
allowing small incidental catches to be landed; and to allow small 
fisheries to operate outside the normal season.
    (d) Automatic actions. Automatic management actions may be initiated 
by the NMFS Regional Administrator without prior public notice, 
opportunity to comment, or a Council meeting. These actions are 
nondiscretionary, and the impacts must have been taken into account 
prior to the action. Unless otherwise stated, a single notice will be 
published in the Federal Register making the action effective if good 
cause exists under the APA to waive notice and comment.
    (1) Automatic actions are used in the Pacific whiting fishery to:
    (i) Close an at-sea sector of the fishery when that sector's Pacific 
whiting allocation is reached, or is projected to be reached;
    (ii) Close all at-sea sectors or a single sector of the fishery when 
a non-whiting groundfish species with allocations is reached or 
projected to be reached;
    (iii) Reapportion unused allocations of non-whiting groundfish 
species from one at-sea sector of the Pacific whiting fishery to 
another.
    (iv) Implement the Ocean Salmon Conservation Zone, described at 
Sec. 660.131(c)(3), subpart D, when NMFS projects the Pacific whiting 
fishery may take in excess of 11,000 Chinook within a calendar year.
    (v) Implement Pacific Whiting Bycatch Reduction Areas, described at 
Sec. 660.131(c)(4) Subpart D, when NMFS projects a sector-specific 
bycatch limit will be reached before the sector's whiting allocation.
    (2) [Reserved]
    (e) Prohibited species. Groundfish species or species groups under 
the PCGFMP for which quotas have been achieved and/or the fishery closed 
are prohibited species. In addition, the following are prohibited 
species:
    (1) Any species of salmonid.
    (2) Pacific halibut.
    (3) Dungeness crab caught seaward of Washington or Oregon.
    (f) Exempted fishing permits (EFP). (1) The Regional Administrator 
may issue EFPs under regulations at Sec. 660.30, subpart C, for 
compensation with fish for collecting resource information. Such EFPs 
may include the collecting of scientific samples of groundfish species 
that would otherwise be prohibited for retention.
    (2) The Regional Administrator may also issue EFPs under regulations 
at 50 CFR part Sec. 600.745 for limited testing,

[[Page 60]]

public display, data collection, exploratory, health and safety, 
environmental cleanup, and/or hazard removal purposes, the target or 
incidental harvest of species managed under an FMP or fishery 
regulations that would otherwise be prohibited.
    (3) U.S. vessels operating under an EFP are subject to restrictions 
in subparts C through G of this part unless otherwise provided in the 
permit.
    (g) Applicability. Groundfish species harvested in the territorial 
sea (0-3 nm) will be counted toward the catch limitations in Tables 1a 
through 2d of this subpart, and those specified in subparts D through G, 
including Tables 1 (North) and 1 (South) of subpart D, Tables 2 (North) 
and 2 (South) of subpart E, Tables 3 (North) and 3 (South) of subpart F.
    (h) Fishery restrictions--(1) Commercial trip limits and 
recreational bag and boat limits. Commercial trip limits and 
recreational bag and boat limits defined in Tables 1a through 2d of this 
subpart, and those specified in subparts D through G of this part, 
including Tables 1 (North) and 1 (South) of subpart D, Tables 2 (North) 
and 2 (South) of subpart E, Tables 3 (North) and 3 (South) of subpart F 
must not be exceeded.
    (2) Landing. As stated at Sec. 660.11, subpart C (in the definition 
of ``Landing''), once the offloading of any species begins, all fish 
aboard the vessel are counted as part of the landing and must be 
reported as such. All fish from an IFQ landing must be offloaded from 
the vessel before a new fishing trip begins. Transfer of fish at sea is 
prohibited under Sec. 660.12, subpart C, unless a vessel is 
participating in the primary whiting fishery as part of the mothership 
or catcher/processor sectors, as described at Sec. 660.131(a), subpart 
D. Catcher vessels in the mothership sector must transfer all catch from 
a haul to the same vessel registered to an MS permit prior to the gear 
being set for a subsequent haul. Catch may not be transferred to a 
tender vessel.
    (3) Fishing ahead. Unless the fishery is closed, a vessel that has 
landed its cumulative or daily limit may continue to fish on the limit 
for the next legal period, so long as no fish (including, but not 
limited to, groundfish with no trip limits, shrimp, prawns, or other 
nongroundfish species or shellfish) are landed (offloaded) until the 
next legal period. Fishing ahead is not allowed during or before a 
closed period.
    (4) Weights and percentages. All weights are round weights or round-
weight equivalents unless otherwise specified. Percentages are based on 
round weights, and, unless otherwise specified, apply only to legal fish 
on board.
    (5) Size limits, length measurement, and weight limits. (i) Size 
limits and length measurement. Unless otherwise specified, size limits 
in the commercial and recreational groundfish fisheries apply to the 
``total length,'' which is the longest measurement of the fish without 
mutilation of the fish or the use of force to extend the length of the 
fish. No fish with a size limit may be retained if it is in such 
condition that its length has been extended or cannot be determined by 
these methods. For conversions not listed here, contact the state where 
the fish will be landed. Washington state regulations require all fish 
with a size limit landed into Washington to be landed with the head on.
    (A) Whole fish. For a whole fish, total length is measured from the 
tip of the snout (mouth closed) to the tip of the tail in a natural, 
relaxed position.
    (B) ``Headed'' fish. For a fish with the head removed (``headed''), 
the length is measured from the origin of the first dorsal fin (where 
the front dorsal fin meets the dorsal surface of the body closest to the 
head) to the tip of the upper lobe of the tail; the dorsal fin and tail 
must be left intact.
    (C) Filets. A filet is the flesh from one side of a fish extending 
from the head to the tail, which has been removed from the body (head, 
tail, and backbone) in a single continuous piece. Filet lengths may be 
subject to size limits for some groundfish taken in the recreational 
fishery off California (see subpart G of this part). A filet is measured 
along the length of the longest part of the filet in a relaxed position; 
stretching or otherwise manipulating the filet to increase its length is 
not permitted.
    (ii) Weight limits and conversions. To determine the round weight, 
multiply

[[Page 61]]

the processed weight times the conversion factor. Federal commercial 
groundfish regulations do not supersede more restrictive state 
commercial groundfish regulations, including landings requirements 
regarding groundfish species or the condition in which they may be 
landed.
    (A) Limited entry fixed gear or open access fisheries. The weight 
limit conversion factor established by the state where the fish is or 
will be landed will be used to convert the processed weight to round 
weight for purposes of applying the trip limit or other allocation. 
Weight conversions provided herein are those conversions currently in 
use by the States of Washington, Oregon, and California and may be 
subject to change by those states. Fishery participants should contact 
fishery enforcement officials in the state where the fish will be landed 
to determine that state's official conversion factor.
    (1) Sablefish. The following conversion applies to both the limited 
entry fixed gear and open access fisheries when trip limits are in

    (i)The minimum size limit lingcod North of 42[deg] N. lat., with the 
head removed, is 18 inches (46 cm), which corresponds to 22 inches (56 
cm) total length for whole fish.
    (ii) The minimum size limit for lingcod South of 42[deg] N. lat., 
with the head removed, is 19.5 inches (49.5 cm), which corresponds to 24 
inches (61 cm) total length for whole fish.
    (iii) The weight conversion factor for headed and gutted 
(eviscerated) lingcod is 1.5; for lingcod that has only been gutted with 
the head on, the weight conversion factor is 1.1.

whiting with the tail removed the weight conversion factor is 2.0.
    (4) Rockfish (including thornyheads), except POP. For headed and 
gutted (eviscerated), the weight conversion factor is 1.75; for headed 
and gutted, western cut (head removed just in front of the collar bone 
and viscera removed,) the weight conversion factor is 1.66; for headed 
and gutted, eastern cut (head removed just behind the collar bone and 
viscera removed,) the weight conversion factor is 2.0.
    (5) Pacific ocean perch (POP). For headed and gutted (eviscerated), 
the weight conversion factor is 1.6.
    (6) Pacific cod. For headed and gutted (eviscerated), the weight

fishery sorting requirements are specified at Sec. 660.230(c), subpart 
E, and Open access fishery sorting requirements are specified at Sec. 
660.330(c), subpart F.
    (7) Crossover provisions. NMFS uses different types of management 
areas for West Coast groundfish management. One type of management area 
is the north-south management area, a large ocean area with northern and 
southern boundary lines wherein trip limits, seasons, and conservation 
areas follow a single theme. Within each north-south management area, 
there may be one or more conservation areas, defined at Sec. 660.11 and 
Sec. Sec. 660.60 through 660.74, subpart C. The provisions within this 
paragraph apply to vessels operating in different north-south management 
areas. Crossover provisions also apply to vessels that fish in both the 
limited entry and open access fisheries, or that use open access non-
trawl gear while registered to limited entry fixed gear permits. Fishery 
specific crossover provisions can be found in subparts D through F of 
this part.
    (i) Operating in north-south management areas with different trip 
limits. Trip limits for a species or a species group may differ in 
different north-south management areas along the coast. The following 
crossover provisions apply to vessels operating in different 
geographical areas that have different cumulative or ``per trip'' trip 
limits for the same species or species group. Such crossover provisions 
do not apply to: IFQ species defined at Sec. 660.140(c), subpart D, for 
vessels that are declared into the shorebased IFQ sector (see 660.13 
(d)(5)(iv)(A) for valid shorebased IFQ declaration reports), species 
that are subject only to daily trip limits, or to the trip limits for 
black rockfish off Washington, as described at Sec. 660.230(d), subpart 
E and Sec. 660.330(e), subpart F.
    (ii) Operating in both limited entry and open access fisheries. Open 
access trip limits apply to any fishing conducted with open access gear, 
even if the vessel has a valid limited entry permit with an endorsement 
for another type of gear. A vessel that operates in both the open access 
and limited entry fisheries is not entitled to two separate trip limits 
for the same species. If a vessel has a limited entry permit and uses 
open access gear, but the open access limit is smaller than the limited 
entry limit, the open access limit may not be exceeded and counts toward 
the limited entry limit. If a vessel has a limited entry permit and uses 
open access gear, but the open access limit is larger than the limited 
entry limit, the smaller limited entry limit applies, even if taken 
entirely with open access gear.

Sec. 660.65  Groundfish harvest specifications.

    Harvest specifications include OFLs, ABCs, and the designation of 
OYs and ACLs. Management measures necessary to keep catch within the ACL 
include ACTs, harvest guidelines (HGs), or quotas for species that need 
individual management, and the allocation of fishery HGs between the 
trawl and nontrawl segments of the fishery, and the allocation of 
commercial HGs between the open access and limited entry segments of the 
fishery. These specifications include fish caught in state ocean waters 
(0-3 nm offshore) as well as fish caught in the EEZ (3-200 nm offshore). 
Harvest specifications are provided in Tables 1a through 2d of this 
subpart.

Sec. 660.70  Groundfish conservation areas.

    In Sec. 660.11, a groundfish conservation area is defined in part 
as ``a geographic area defined by coordinates expressed in degrees 
latitude and longitude, wherein fishing by a particular gear type or 
types may be prohibited.'' While some groundfish conservation areas may 
be designed with the intent that their shape be determined by ocean 
bottom depth contours, their shapes are defined in regulation by 
latitude/longitude coordinates and are enforced by those coordinates. 
Latitude/longitude coordinates designating the large-scale boundaries 
for rockfish conservation areas are found in Sec. Sec. 660.71 through 
660.74. Fishing activity that is prohibited or permitted within a 
particular groundfish conservation area is

Sec. 660.75  Essential Fish Habitat (EFH).

    Essential fish habitat (EFH) is defined as those waters and 
substrate necessary to fish for spawning, breeding, feeding or growth to 
maturity (16 U.S.C. 1802 (10)). EFH for Pacific Coast Groundfish 
includes all waters and substrate within areas with a depth less than or 
equal to 3,500 m (1,914 fm) shoreward to the mean higher high water 
level or the upriver extent of saltwater intrusion (defined as upstream 
and landward to where ocean-derived salts measure less than 0.5 parts 
per thousand during the period of average annual low flow). Seamounts in 
depths greater than 3,500 m (1,914 fm) are also included due to their 
ecological importance to groundfish. Geographically, EFH for Pacific 
Coast groundfish includes both a large band of marine waters that 
extends from the Northern edge of the EEZ at the U.S. border with Canada 
to the Southern edge of the EEZ at the U.S. border with Mexico, and 
inland within bays and estuaries. The seaward extent of EFH is 
consistent with the westward edge of

[[Page 126]]

the EEZ for areas approximately north of Cape Mendocino. Approximately 
south of Cape Mendocino, the 3500 m depth contour and EFH is 
substantially shoreward of the seaward boundary of the EEZ. There are 
also numerous discrete areas seaward of the main 3500 m depth contour 
where the ocean floor rises to depths less than 3500 m and therefore are 
also EFH. The seaward boundary of EFH and additional areas of EFH are 
defined by straight lines connecting a series of latitude and longitude 
coordinates in Sec. Sec. 660.76 through 660.79.
    (a) The seaward boundary of EFH, with the exception of the areas in 
paragraphs (b) through (qq), is bounded by the EEZ combined with a

Sec. 660.76  EFH Conservation Areas.

    EFH Conservation Areas are designated to minimize to the extent 
practicable adverse effects to EFH caused by fishing (16 U.S.C. 1853 
section 303(a)(7)). The boundaries of areas designated as Groundfish EFH 
Conservation Areas are defined by straight lines connecting a series of 
latitude and longitude coordinates. This section provides coordinates 
outlining the boundaries of the coastwide EFH Conservation Area. Section 
660.77 provides coordinates outlining the boundaries of EFH Conservation 
Areas that occur wholly off the coast of Washington. Section 660.78 
provides coordinates outlining the boundaries of EFH Conservation Areas 
that occur wholly off the coast of Oregon. Section 660.79 provides 
coordinates outlining the boundaries of EFH Conservation Areas that 
occur

Sec. Table 1a to Part 660, Subpart C--2011, Specifications of OFL, ABC, 

    ACL, ACT and Fishery Harvest guidelines (weights in metric tons)

[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR19MY11.007


[[Page 140]]


    a/ ACLs and HGs are specified as total catch values. Fishery harvest 
guidelines (HGs) means the harvest guideline or quota after subtracting 
from the ACL or ACT any allocation for the Pacific Coast treaty Indian 
Tribes, projected research catch, deductions for fishing mortality in 
non-groundfish fisheries, as necessary, and set-asides for EFPs.
    b/ Lingcod north (Oregon and Washington). A new lingcod stock 
assessment was prepared in 2009. The lingcod north biomass was estimated 
to be at 62 percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 2,438 mt 
was calculated using an FMSYproxy of F45%. The ABC of 2,330 mt was based 
on a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36/P* = 0.45) as it's 
a category 1 species. Because the stock is above B40% coastwide, the ACL 
is set equal to the ABC. ACL is further reduced for the Tribal fishery 
(250 mt), incidental open access fishery (16 mt) and research catch (5 
mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 2,059 mt.
    c/ Lingcod south (California). A new lingcod stock assessment was 
prepared in 2009. The lingcod south biomass was estimated to be at 74 
percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 2,523 mt was 
calculated using an FMSYproxy of F45%. The ABC of 2,102 mt was based on 
a 17 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.72/P* = 0.40) as it's a 
category 2 species. Because the stock is above B40% coastwide, the ACL 
is set equal to the ABC. An incidental open access set-aside of 7 mt is 
deducted from the ACL, resulting in a fishery HG of 2,095 mt.
    d/ Pacific Cod. The 3,200 mt OFL is based on the maximum level of 
historic landings. The ABC of 2,222 mt is a 31 percent reduction from 
the OFL ([sigma] = 1.44/P* = 0.40) as it's a category 3 species. The 
1,600 mt ACL is the OFL reduced by 50 percent as a precautionary 
adjustment. A set-aside of 400 mt is deducted from the ACL for the 
Tribal fishery resulting in a fishery HG of 1,200 mt.
    e/Pacific whiting. The most recent stock assessment was prepared in 
January 2011. The stock assessment estimated the Pacific whiting biomass 
to be at 126 percent (50th percentile estimate of depletion, using two 
equally plausible models that were averaged together) of its unfished 
biomass in 2011. The U.S.-Canada coastwide OFL is 973,700 mt. The U.S. 
share of the OFL is 719,370 mt (73.88 percent of the coastwide OFL). The 
U.S.-Canada coastwide ACL is 393,751 mt, with a corresponding U.S. ACL 
(73.88 percent of the coastwide ACL) of 290,903 mt. The ACL is reduced 
by 66,908 mt for the tribal allocation, and a set-aside of 3,000 mt is 
deducted for the incidental open access fishery and research catch, 
resulting in a fishery HG of 220,995 mt.
    f/Sablefish north. A coastwide sablefish stock assessment was 
prepared in 2007. The coastwide sablefish biomass was estimated to be at 
38.3 percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The coastwide OFL of 8,808 
mt was based on the 2007 stock assessment with a FMSYproxy of F45%. The 
ABC of 8,418 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36/P* 
= 0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The 40-10 harvest policy was 
applied to the ABC to derive the coastwide ACL and then the ACL was 
apportioned north and south of 36[deg] N. lat, using the average of 
annual swept area biomass (2003-2008) from the NMFS NWFSC trawl survey, 
between the northern and southern areas with 68 percent going to the 
area north of 36[deg] N. lat. and 32 percent going to the area south of 
36[deg] N. lat. The northern portion of the ACL is 5,515 mt and is 
reduced by 552 mt for the Tribal allocation (10 percent of the ACL north 
of 36[deg] N. lat.) The 552 mt Tribal allocation is reduced by 1.5 
percent to account for discard mortality. Detailed sablefish allocations 
are shown in Table 1c.
    g/Sablefish South. That portion of the coastwide ACL apportioned to 
the area south of 36[deg] N. lat. is 2,595 mt (32 percent). An 
additional 50 percent reduction was made for uncertainty resulting in an 
ACL of 1,298 mt. A set-aside of 34 mt is deducted from the ACL for EFP 
catch (26 mt), the incidental open access fishery (6 mt) and research 
catch (2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,264 mt.
    h/Cabezon (Oregon). A new cabezon stock assessment was prepared in 
2009. The cabezon biomass in Oregon was estimated to be at 51 percent of 
its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 52 mt was calculated using an 
FMSYproxy of F45%. The ABC of 50 mt was based on a 4 percent reduction 
from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36/P* = 0.45) as it's a category 1 species. 
Because the stock is above B40% coastwide, the ACL is set equal to the 
ABC. No set-asides were removed so the fishery HG is also equal to the 
ACL at 50 mt. Cabezon in waters off Oregon were removed from the ``other 
fish'' complex, while cabezon of Washington will continue to be managed 
within the ``other fish'' complex.
    i/Cabezon (California). A new cabezon stock assessment was prepared 
in 2009. The cabezon south biomass was estimated to be at 48 percent of 
its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 187 mt was calculated using an 
FMSYproxy of F45%. The ABC of 179 mt was based on a 4 percent reduction 
from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36/P* = 0.45) as it's a category 1 species. 
Because the stock is above B40% coastwide, the ACL is set equal to the 
ABC. No set-asides were removed so the fishery HG is also equal to the 
ACL at 179 mt.
    j/Dover sole. A 2005 Dover sole assessment estimated the stock to be 
at 63 percent of its unfished biomass in 2005. The OFL of 44,400 mt is 
based on the results of the 2005 stock assessment with an FMSYproxy of 
F30%. The ABC of 42,436 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma] = 0.36/P* = 0.45) as it's a category 1 species. Because the 
stock is above B25% coastwide, the ACL could be set equal to the ABC. 
However, the ACL of 25,000 mt is set at a level below the ABC and higher 
than

[[Page 141]]

the maximum historical landed catch. A set-aside of 1,590 mt is deducted 
from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (1,497 mt), the incidental open 
access fishery (55 mt) and research catch (38 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 23,410 mt.
    k/English sole. A stock assessment update was prepared in 2007 based 
on the full assessment in 2005. The stock was estimated to be at 116 
percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The OFL of 20,675 mt is based 
on the results of the 2007 assessment update with an FMSYproxy of F30%. 
The ABC of 19,761 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. Because the stock 
is above B25%, the ACL was set equal to the ABC. A set-aside of 100 mt 
is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (91 mt), the incidental 
open access fishery (4 mt) and research catch (5 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 19,661 mt.
    l/Petrale sole. A petrale sole stock assessment was prepared for 
2009. In 2009 the petrale sole stock was estimated to be at 12 percent 
of its unfished biomass coastwide, resulting in the stock being declared 
as overfished. The OFL of 1,021 mt is based on the 2009 assessment with 
a F30% FMSYproxy. The ABC of 976 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The ACL is set 
equal to the ABC and corresponds to an SPR harvest rate of 31 percent. A 
set-aside of 65.4 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery 
(45.4 mt), the incidental open access fishery (1 mt), EFP catch (2 mt) 
and research catch (17 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 911 mt.
    m/Arrowtooth flounder. The stock was last assessed in 2007 and was 
estimated to be at 79 percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The OFL 
of 18,211 mt is based on the 2007 assessment with a F30% FMSYproxy. The 
ABC of 15,174 mt is a 17 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/
P*=0.40) as it's a category 2 species. Because the stock is above B25%, 
the ACL is set equal to the ABC. A set-aside of 2,078 mt is deducted 
from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (2,041 mt), the incidental open 
access fishery (30 mt), and research catch (7 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 13,096 mt.
    n/Starry Flounder. The stock was assessed for the first time in 2005 
and was estimated to be above 40 percent of its unfished biomass in 
2005. For 2011, the coastwide OFL of 1,802 mt is based on the 2005 
assessment with a FMSYproxy of F30%. The ABC of 1,502 mt is a 17 percent 
reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) as it's a category 2 
species. Because the stock is above B25%, the ACL could have been set 
equal to the ABC. As a precautionary measure, the ACL of 1,352 mt is a 
25 percent reduction from the OFL, which is a 10 percent reduction from 
the ABC. A set-aside of 7 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal 
fishery (2 mt), the incidental open access fishery (5 mt), resulting in 
a fishery HG of 1,345 mt.
    o/``Other flatfish'' are the unassessed flatfish species that do not 
have individual OFLs/ABC/ACLs and include butter sole, curlfin sole, 
flathead sole, Pacific sand dab, rex sole, rock sole, and sand sole. The 
other flatfish OFL of 10,146 mt is based on the summed contribution of 
the OFLs determined for the component stocks. The ABC of 7,044 mt is a 
31 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.40) as all species 
in this complex are category 3 species. The ACL of 4,884 mt is 
equivalent to the 2010 OY, because there have been no significant 
changes in the status or management of stocks within the complex. A set-
aside of 198 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (60 mt), 
the incidental open access fishery (125 mt), and research catch (13 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 4,686 mt.
    p/POP. A POP stock assessment update was prepared in 2009, based on 
the 2003 full assessment, and the stock was estimated to be at 29 
percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 1,026 mt for the 
Vancouver and Columbia areas is based on the 2009 stock assessment 
update with an F50% FMSYproxy. The ABC of 981 mt is a 4 percent 
reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 
species. The ACL of 180 mt is based on a rebuilding plan with a target 
year to rebuild of 2020 and an SPR harvest rate of 86.4 percent. An ACT 
of 157 mt is being established to address management uncertainty and 
increase the likelihood that total catch remains within the ACL. A set-
aside of 12.8 mt is deducted from the ACT for the Tribal fishery (10.9 
mt), EFP catch (0.1 mt) and research catch (1.8 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 144.2 mt.
    q/Shortbelly rockfish. A non-quantitative assessment was conducted 
in 2007. The spawning stock biomass of shortbelly rockfish was estimated 
at 67 percent of its unfished biomass in 2005. The OFL of 6,950 mt was 
recommended for the stock in 2011 with an ABC of 5,789 mt ([sigma]=0.72 
with a P* of 0.40). The 50 mt ACL is slightly higher than recent 
landings, but much lower than previous OYs in recognition of the stock's 
importance as a forage species in the California Current ecosystem. A 
set-aside of 1 mt for research catch results in a fishery HG of 49 mt.
    r/Widow rockfish. The stock was assessed in 2009 and was estimated 
to be at 39 percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 5,097 mt 
is based on the 2009 stock assessment with an F50% FMSYproxy. The ABC of 
4,872 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as 
it's a category 1 species. A constant catch strategy of 600 mt, which 
corresponds to an SPR harvest rate of 91.7 percent, will be used to 
rebuild the widow rockfish stock consistent with the rebuilding plan and 
a TTARGETof 2010. A set-aside of 61 mt is deducted from the ACL for the 
Tribal fishery (45 mt), the incidental open access fishery (3.3 mt), EFP 
catch (11

[[Page 142]]

mt) and research catch (1.6 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 539.1 mt.
    s/Canary rockfish. A canary rockfish stock assessment update, based 
on the full assessment in 2007, was completed in 2009 and the stock was 
estimated to be at 23.7 percent of its unfished biomass coastwide in 
2009. The coastwide OFL of 614 mt is based on the new assessment with a 
FMSYproxy of F50%. The ABC of 586 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The ACL of 102 
mt is based on a rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2027 
and a SPR harvest rate of 88.7 percent. A set-aside of 20 mt is deducted 
from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (9.5 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (2 mt), EFP catch (1.3 mt) and research catch (7.2 mt) resulting 
in a fishery HG of 82 mt. Recreational HGs are being specified as 
follows: Washington recreational, 2.0; Oregon recreational 7.0 mt; and 
California recreational 14.5 mt.
    t/Chilipepper rockfish. The coastwide chilipepper stock was assessed 
in 2007 and estimated to be at 71 percent of its unfished biomass 
coastwide in 2006. Given that chilipepper rockfish are predominantly a 
southern species, the stock is managed with stock-specific harvest 
specifications south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and within minor shelf 
rockfish north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. South of 40[deg]10[min] N. 
lat., the OFL of 2,073 mt is based on the 2007 assessment with an 
FMSYproxy of F50%. The ABC of 1,981 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. Because the 
biomass is estimated to be above 40 percent of the unfished biomass, the 
ACL was set equal to the ABC. The ACL is reduced by the incidental open 
access fishery (5 mt), and research catch (9 mt), resulting in a fishery 
HG of 1,966 mt.
    u/Bocaccio. A bocaccio stock assessment was prepared in 2009 from 
Cape Mendocino to Cape Blanco (43[deg] N. lat.) Given that bocaccio 
rockfish are predominantly a southern species, the stock is managed with 
stock-specific harvest specifications south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. 
and within minor shelf rockfish north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The 
bocaccio stock was estimated to be at 28 percent of its unfished biomass 
in 2009. The OFL of 737 mt is based on the 2009 stock assessment with an 
FMSYproxy of F50%. The ABC of 704 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The 263 mt ACL 
is based on a rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2022 and 
a SPR harvest rate of 77.7 percent. A set-aside of 13.4 mt is deducted 
from the ACL for the incidental open access fishery (0.7 mt), EFP catch 
(11 mt) and research catch (1.7 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 249.6 
mt.
    v/Splitnose rockfish. A new coastwide assessment was prepared in 
2009 that estimated the stock to be at 66 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2009. Splitnose in the north is managed under the minor slope 
rockfish complex and south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. with species-
specific harvest specifications. South of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. the OFL 
of 1,529 mt is based on the 2009 assessment with an FMSYproxy of F50%. 
The ABC of 1,461 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/
P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. Because the unfished biomass is 
estimated to be above 40 percent of the unfished biomass, the ACL is set 
equal to the ABC. A set-aside of 7 mt is deducted from the ACL for 
research catch, resulting in a fishery HG of 1,454 mt.
    w/Yellowtail rockfish. A yellowtail rockfish stock assessment was 
last prepared in 2005 for the Vancouver, Columbia, and Eureka areas. 
Yellowtail rockfish was estimated to be at 55 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. The OFL of 4,566 mt is based on the 2005 stock 
assessment with the FMSYproxy of F50%. The ABC of 4,364 mt is a 4 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 
1 species. The ACL was set equal to the ABC, because the stock is above 
B40%. A set-aside of 507 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal 
fishery (490 mt), the incidental open access fishery (3 mt), EFP catch 
(10 mt) and research catch (4 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 3,857 
mt.
    x/Shortspine thornyhead. A coastwide stock assessment was conducted 
in 2005 and the stock was estimated to be at 63 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. A coastwide OFL of 2,384 mt is based on the 2005 stock 
assessment with a F50% FMSYproxy. The coastwide ABC of 2,279 mt is a 4 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 
1 species. For the portion of the stock that is north of 34[deg]27[min] 
N. lat., the ACL is 1,573 mt, 66 percent of the coastwide OFL. A set-
aside of 45 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (38 mt), 
the incidental open access fishery (2 mt), and research catch (5 mt) 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,528 mt for the area north of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat. For that portion of the stock south of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat. the ACL is 405 mt which is 34 percent of the 
coastwide OFL, reduced by 50 percent as a precautionary adjustment. A 
set-aside of 42 mt is deducted from the ACL for the incidental open 
access fishery (41 mt), and research catch (1 mt) resulting in a fishery 
HG of 363 mt for the area south of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. The sum of the 
northern and southern area ACLs (1,978 mt) is a 13 percent reduction 
from the coastwide ABC.
    y/Longspine thornyhead. A coastwide stock assessment was conducted 
in 2005 and the stock was estimated to be at 71 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. A coastwide OFL of 3,577 mt is based on the 2005 stock 
assessment with a F50% FMSYproxy. The ABC of 2,981 mt is a 17 percent 
reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) as it's a category 2 
species. For the portion of the stock that is north of 34[deg]27[min] N. 
lat., the ACL is 2,119 mt, and is 79 percent of the coastwide OFL for 
the biomass found in that area reduced by an

[[Page 143]]

additional 25 percent as a precautionary adjustment. A set-aside of 44 
mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (30 mt), the 
incidental open access fishery (1 mt), and research catch (13 mt) 
resulting in a fishery HG of 2,075 mt. For that portion of the stock 
south of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. the ACL is 376 mt and is 21 percent of 
the coastwide ABC reduced by 50 percent as a precautionary adjustment. A 
set-aside of 3 mt is deducted from the ACL for the incidental open 
access fishery (2 mt), and research catch (1 mt) resulting in a fishery 
HG of 373 mt. The sum of the northern and southern area ACLs (2,495 mt) 
is a 16 percent reduction from the coastwide ABC.
    z/Cowcod. A stock assessment update was prepared in 2009 and the 
stock was estimated to be 5 percent (bounded between 4 and 21 percent) 
of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFLs for the Monterey and 
Conception areas were summed to derive the south of 40[deg]10 N.[min] 
lat. OFL of 13 mt. The ABC for the area south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. 
is 10 mt. The assessed portion of the stock in the Conception Area was 
considered category 2, with a Conception Area contribution to the ABC of 
5 mt, which is a 17 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/
P*=0.35). The unassessed portion of the stock in the Monterrey area was 
considered a category 3 stock, with a contribution to the ABC of 5 mt, 
which is a 29 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.40). A 
single ACL of 3 mt is being set for both areas combined. The ACL of 3 mt 
is based on a rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2068 and 
an SPR rate of 82.7 percent. The amount anticipated to be taken during 
research activity is 0.1 mt and the amount expected to be taken during 
EFP activity is 0.2 mt, which results in a fishery HG of 2.7 mt.
    aa/Darkblotched rockfish. A stock assessment update was prepared in 
2009, based on the 2007 full assessment, and the stock was estimated to 
be at 27.5 percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL is projected 
to be 508 mt and is based on the 2009 stock assessment with an FMSYproxy 
of F50%. The ABC of 485 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The ACL of 298 mt 
is based on a rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2025 and 
an SPR harvest rate of 64.9 percent. A set-aside of 18.7 mt is deducted 
from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (0.1 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (15 mt), EFP catch (1.5 mt) and research catch (2.1 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 279.3 mt.
    bb/Yelloweye rockfish. The stock was assessed in 2009 and was 
estimated to be at 20.3 percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The 48 
mt coastwide OFL was derived from the base model in the new stock 
assessment with an FMSYproxy of F50%. The ABC of 46 mt is a 4 percent 
reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 
species. The 17 mt ACL is based on a rebuilding plan with a target year 
to rebuild of 2074 and an SPR harvest rate of 76 percent. A set-aside of 
5.9 mt is deducted from the ACT for the Tribal fishery (2.3 mt), the 
incidental open access fishery (0.2 mt), EFP catch (0.1 mt) and research 
catch (3.3 mt) resulting in a fishery HG of 11.1 mt. Recreational HGs 
are being established as follows: Washington recreational, 2.6; Oregon 
recreational 2.4 mt; and California recreational 3.1 mt.
    cc/California Scorpionfish was assessed in 2005 and was estimated to 
be at 80 percent of its unfished biomass in 2005. The OFL of 141 mt is 
based on the new assessment with a harvest rate proxy of F50%. The ABC 
of 135 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) 
as it's a category 1 species. Because the stock is above B40%, the ACL 
is set equal to the ABC. A set-aside of 2 mt is deducted from the ACL 
for the incidental open access fishery, resulting in a fishery HG of 133 
mt.
    dd/Black rockfish north (Washington). A stock assessment was 
prepared for black rockfish north of 45[deg]56[min] N. lat. (Cape 
Falcon, Oregon) in 2007. The biomass in the north was estimated to be at 
53 percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The OFL from the assessed 
area is based on the 2007 assessment with a harvest rate proxy of F50%. 
The resulting OFL for the area north of 46[deg]16[min] N. lat. (the 
Washington/Oregon Border) is 445 mt and is 97 percent of the OFL from 
the assessed area. The ABC of 426 mt for the north of 46[deg]16[min] N. 
Lat. is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as 
it's a category 1 species. The ACL was set equal to the ABC, since the 
stock is above B40%. A set-aside of 14 mt for the Tribal fishery results 
in a fishery HG of 412 mt.
    ee/Black rockfish south (Oregon and California). A 2007 stock 
assessment was prepared for black rockfish south of 45[deg]56[min] N. 
lat. (Cape Falcon, Oregon) to the southern limit of the stock's 
distribution in Central California in 2007. The biomass in this area was 
estimated to be at 70 percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The OFL 
from the assessed area is based on the 2007 assessment with a harvest 
rate proxy of F50%. Three percent of the OFL from the stock assessment 
prepared for black rockfish north of 45[deg]56[min] N. lat. is added to 
the OFL from the assessed area south of 45[deg] 56[min] N. lat. The 
resulting OFL for the area south of 46[deg]16[min] N. lat. is 1,217 mt. 
The ABC of 1,163 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/
P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The ACL was set at 1,000 mt, 
which is a constant catch strategy designed to keep the stock biomass 
above B40%. There are no set-asides thus the fishery HG is equal to the 
ACL. The black rockfish ACL in the area south of 46[deg]16[min] N. lat., 
is subdivided with separate HGs being set for the area north of 42[deg] 
N. lat. (580 mt/58 percent) and for the area south of 42[deg] N. lat. 
(420 mt/42 percent).

[[Page 144]]

    ff/Minor rockfish north is comprised of three minor rockfish sub-
complexes: Nearshore, shelf, and slope rockfish. The OFL of 3,767 mt is 
the sum of OFLs for nearshore (116 mt), shelf (2,188 mt) and slope 
(1,462 mt) north sub-complexes. Each sub-complex OFL is the sum of the 
OFLs of the component species within the complex. The ABCs for the minor 
rockfish complexes and sub-complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.36 
for category 1 stocks (splitnose and chilipepper rockfish), 0.72 for 
category 2 stocks (greenstriped rockfish and blue rockfish in 
California) and 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 
0.45. The resulting minor rockfish north ABC, which is the summed 
contribution of the ABCs for the contributing species in each sub-
complex (nearshore, shelf, and slope) is 3,363 mt. The ACL of 2,227 mt 
for the complex is the sum of the sub-complex ACLs. The sub-complex ACLs 
are the sum of the component stock ACLs, which are less than or equal to 
the ABC contribution of each component stock. There are no set-asides 
for the nearshore sub-complex, thus the fishery HG is equal to the ACL, 
which is 99 mt. The set-aside for the shelf sub-complex is 43 mt--Tribal 
fishery (9 mt), the incidental open access fishery (26 mt), EFP catch (4 
mt) and research catch (4 mt) resulting in a shelf fishery HG of 925 mt. 
The set-aside for the slope sub-complex is 68 mt--Tribal fishery (36 
mt), the incidental open access fishery (19 mt), EFP catch (2 mt) and 
research catch (11 mt), resulting in a slope fishery HG of 1,092 mt.
    gg/Minor rockfish south is comprised of three minor rockfish sub-
complexes: Nearshore, shelf, and slope. The OFL of 4,302 mt is the sum 
of OFLs for nearshore (1,156 mt), shelf (2,238 mt) and slope (907 mt) 
south sub-complexes. Each sub-complex OFL is the sum of the OFLs of the 
component species within the complex. The ABCs for the minor rockfish 
complexes and sub-complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.36 for 
category 1 stocks (gopher rockfish north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat., 
blackgill), 0.72 for category 2 stocks (blue rockfish in the assessed 
area, greenstriped rockfish, and bank rockfish) and 1.44 for category 3 
stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting minor rockfish 
south ABC, which is the summed contribution of the ABCs for the 
contributing species in each sub-complex, is 3,723 mt (1,001 mt 
nearshore, 1,885 mt shelf, and 836 mt slope). The ACL of 2,341 mt for 
the complex is the sum of the sub-complex ACLs. The sub-complex ACLs are 
the sum of the component stock ACLs, which are less than or equal to the 
ABC contribution of each component stock. There are no set-asides for 
the nearshore sub-complex, thus the fishery HG is equal to the ACL, 
which is 1,001 mt. The set-aside for the shelf sub-complex is 13 mt for 
the incidental open access fishery (9 mt), EFP catch (2 mt) and research 
catch (2 mt), resulting in a shelf fishery HG of 701 mt. The set-aside 
for the slope sub-complex is 27 mt for the incidental open access 
fishery (17 mt), EFP catch (2 mt) and research catch (8 mt), resulting 
in a slope fishery HG of 599 mt.
    hh/Longnose skate. A stock assessment was prepared in 2007 and the 
stock was estimated to be at 66 percent of its unfished biomass. The OFL 
of 3,128 mt is based on the 2007 stock assessment with an FMSYproxy of 
F45%. The ABC of 2,990 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The ACL of 1,349 is 
equivalent to the 2010 OY and represents a 50% increase in the average 
2004-2006 mortality (landings and discard mortality). The set-aside for 
longnose skate is 129 mt for the Tribal fishery (56 mt), incidental open 
access fishery (65 mt), and research catch (8 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 1,220 mt.
    ii/ ``Other fish'' contains all unassessed groundfish FMP species 
that are neither rockfish (family Scorpaenidae) nor flatfish. These 
species include big skate, California skate, leopard shark, soupfin 
shark, spiny dogfish, finescale codling, Pacific rattail, ratfish, 
cabezon off Washington, and kelp greenling. The OFL of 11,150 mt is 
equivalent to the 2010 MSY harvest level minus the 50 mt contribution 
made for cabezon off Oregon, which is a newly assessed stock to be 
managed with stock-specific specifications. The ABC of 7,742 mt is a 31 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 1.44/P* = 0.40) as all of the 
stocks in the ``other fish'' complex are category 3 species. The ACL of 
5,575 mt is equivalent to the 2010 OY, minus half of the OFL 
contribution for Cabezon off of Oregon (25 mt). The fishery HG is equal 
to the ACL.

of OFL, ABC, ACL, ACT and Fishery Harvest guidelines (weights in metric tons)

[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR11MY11.003

    a/ ACLs and HGs are specified as total catch values. Fishery harvest 
guideline (HG) means the harvest guideline or quota after subtracting 
from the ACL of ACT any allocation for the Pacific Coast treaty Indian 
Tribes, projected research catch, deductions for fishing mortality in 
non-groundfish fisheries, as necessary, and set-asides for EFPs.

[[Page 151]]

    b/ Lingcod north (Oregon and Washington). A new lingcod stock 
assessment was prepared in 2009. The lingcod north biomass was estimated 
to be at 62 percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 2,251 mt 
was calculated using an FMSY proxy of F45%. The 
ABC of 2,151 mt was based on a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. Because the stock 
is above B40% coastwide, the ACL is set equal to the ABC. ACL 
is further reduced for the Tribal fishery (250 mt), incidental open 
access fishery (16 mt) and research catch (5 mt), resulting in a fishery 
HG of 1,880 mt.
    c/ Lingcod south (California). A new lingcod stock assessment was 
prepared in 2009. The lingcod south biomass was estimated to be at 74 
percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 2,597 mt was 
calculated using an FMSY proxy of F45%. The ABC of 
2,164 mt was based on a 17 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/
P*=0.40) as it's a category 2 species. Because the stock is above 
B40% coastwide, the ACL is set equal to the ABC. An 
incidental open access set-aside of 7 mt is deducted from the ACL, 
resulting in a fishery HG of 2,157 mt.
    d/ Pacific Cod. The 3,200 mt OFL is based on the maximum level of 
historic landings. The ABC of 2,222 mt is a 31 percent reduction from 
the OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.40) as it's a category 3 species. The 1,600 
mt ACL is the OFL reduced by 50 percent as a precautionary adjustment. A 
set-aside of 400 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery, 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,200 mt.
    e/ Pacific whiting. A range of ACLs were considered in the EIS 
(96,968 mt-290,903 mt). A new stock assessment will be prepared prior to 
the Council's March 2012 meeting. Final adoption of the Pacific whiting 
specifications have been deferred until the Council's March 2012 
meeting.
    f/ Sablefish north. A coastwide sablefish stock assessment was 
prepared in 2007. The coastwide sablefish biomass was estimated to be at 
38.3 percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The coastwide OFL of 8,623 
mt was based on the 2007 stock assessment with a FMSY proxy 
of F45%. The ABC of 8,242 mt is a 4 percent reduction from 
the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The 40-10 
harvest policy was applied to the ABC to derive the coastwide ACL and 
then the ACL was apportioned north and south of 36[deg] N. lat, using 
the average of annual swept area biomass (2003-2008) from the NMFS NWFSC 
trawl survey, between the northern and southern areas with 68 percent 
going to the area north of 36[deg] N. lat. and 32 percent going to the 
area south of 36[deg] N. lat. The northern portion of the ACL is 5,347 
mt and is reduced by 535 mt for the Tribal allocation (10 percent of the 
ACL north of 36[deg] N. lat.) The 535 mt Tribal allocation is reduced by 
1.5 percent to account for discard mortality. Detailed sablefish 
allocations are shown in Table 1c.
    g/ Sablefish South. That portion of the coastwide ACL (32 percent) 
apportioned to the area south of 36[deg] N. lat. is 2,516 mt. An 
additional 50 percent reduction for uncertainty was made, resulting in 
an ACL of 1,258 mt. A set-aside of 34 mt is deducted from the ACL for 
EFP catch (26 mt), the incidental open access fishery (6 mt) and 
research catch (2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,224 mt.
    h/ Cabezon (Oregon). A new cabezon stock assessment was prepared in 
2009. The cabezon biomass in Oregon was estimated to be at 51 percent of 
its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 50 mt was calculated using an 
FMSY proxy of F45%. The ABC of 48 mt was based on 
a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a 
category 1 species. Because the stock is above B40% 
coastwide, the ACL is set equal to the ABC. No set-asides were removed 
so the fishery HG is also equal to the ACL at 48 mt. Cabezon in waters 
off Oregon were removed from the ``other fish'' complex, while cabezon 
of Washington will continue to be managed within the ``other fish'' 
complex.
    i/ Cabezon (California)--A new cabezon stock assessment was prepared 
in 2009. The cabezon south biomass was estimated to be at 48 percent of 
its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 176 mt was calculated using an 
FMSY proxy of F45%. The ABC of 168 mt was based on 
a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a 
category 1 species. Because the stock is above B40% 
coastwide, the ACL is set equal to the ABC. No set-asides were removed 
so the fishery HG is also equal to the ACL at 168 mt.
    j/ Dover sole. Final 2012 OFLs, ABCs, ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for 
assessed flatfish species are contingent upon potential changes to the 
flatfish status determination criteria and harvest control rule.
    k/ English sole. Final 2012 OFLs, ABCs, ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs 
for assessed flatfish species are contingent upon potential changes to 
the flatfish status determination criteria and harvest control rule.
    l/ Petrale sole. Final 2012 petrale sole OFL, ABC, ACL, ACT and 
fishery HG are contingent upon potential changes to the flatfish status 
determination criteria and harvest control rule, and potential changes 
to rebuilding plans.
    n/ Starry Flounder. Final 2012 OFLs, ABCs, ACLs, ACTs and fishery 
HGs, for assessed flatfish species are contingent upon potential changes 
to the flatfish status determination criteria and harvest control rule.
    o/ ``Other flatfish'' are the unassessed flatfish species that do 
not have individual OFLs/ABC/ACLs and include butter sole, curlfin sole, 
flathead sole, Pacific sand dab, rex sole, rock sole, and sand sole. The 
other flatfish OFL of 10,146 mt is based on the summed contribution of 
the OFLs determined for the component stocks. The ABC of

[[Page 152]]

7,044 mt is a 31 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.40) 
as all species in this complex are category 3 species. The ACL of 4,884 
mt is equivalent to the 2010 OY, because there have been no significant 
changes in the status or management of stocks within the complex. A set-
aside of 198 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (60 mt), 
the incidental open access fishery (125 mt), and research catch (13 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 4,686 mt.
    p/ POP. Final 2012 ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for overfished species 
are contingent upon potential changes to rebuilding plans.
    q/ Shortbelly rockfish. A non quantitative assessment was conducted 
in 2007. The spawning stock biomass of shortbelly rockfish was estimated 
at 67 percent of its unfished biomass in 2005. The OFL of 6,950 mt was 
recommended for the stock in 2011 with an ABC of 5,789 mt ([sigma]=0.72 
with a P* of 0.40). The 50 mt ACL is slightly higher than recent 
landings, but much lower than previous OYs in recognition of the stock's 
importance as a forage species in the California Current ecosystem. A 
set-aside of 1 mt for research catch, resulting in a fishery HG of 49 
mt.
    r/ Widow rockfish. Final 2012 ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for 
overfished species are contingent upon potential changes to rebuilding 
plans.
    s/ Canary rockfish. Final 2012 ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for 
overfished species are contingent upon potential changes to rebuilding 
plans.
    t/ Chilipepper rockfish. The coastwide chilipepper stock was 
assessed in 2007 and estimated to be at 71 percent of its unfished 
biomass coastwide in 2006. Given that chilipepper rockfish are 
predominantly a southern species, the stock is managed with stock-
specific harvest specifications south of 40[deg]10 N. lat. and within 
minor shelf rockfish north of 40[deg]10 N. lat. South of 40[deg]10 N. 
lat., the OFL of 1,872 mt is based on the 2007 assessment with an 
FMSY proxy of F50%. The ABC of 1,789 mt is a 4 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 
1 species. Because the biomass is estimated to be above 40 percent the 
unfished biomass, the ACL was set equal to the ABC. The ACL is reduced 
by the incidental open access fishery (5 mt), and research catch (9 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,774 mt.
    u/ Bocaccio. Final 2012 ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for overfished 
species are contingent upon potential changes to rebuilding plans.
    v/ Splitnose rockfish. A new coastwide assessment was prepared in 
2009 that estimated the stock to be at 66 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2009. Splitnose in the north is managed under the minor slope 
rockfish complex and in the south (south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat.), 
with species-specific harvest specifications. The 1,610 mt OFL south of 
40[deg]10 N. lat. is based on the 2009 assessment with an 
FMSY proxy of F50%. The ABC of 1,538 mt is a 4 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 
1 species. Because the unfished biomass is estimated to be above 40 
percent of the unfished biomass, the ACL is set equal to the ABC. A set-
aside of 7 mt is deducted from the ACL for research catch, resulting in 
a fishery HG of 1,531 mt.
    w/ Yellowtail rockfish. A yellowtail rockfish stock assessment was 
last prepared in 2005 for the Vancouver, Columbia, Eureka areas. 
Yellowtail rockfish was estimated to be at 55 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. The OFL of 4,573 mt is based on the 2005 stock 
assessment with the FMSY proxy of F50%. The ABC of 
4,371 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as 
it's a category 1 species. The ACL was set equal to the ABC, because the 
stock is above B40%. A set-aside of 499 mt is deducted from 
the ACL for the Tribal fishery (490 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (3 mt), EFP catch (2 mt) and research catch (4 mt), resulting in 
a fishery HG of 3,872 mt.
    x/ Shortspine thornyhead. A coastwide stock assessment was conducted 
in 2005 and the stock was estimated to be at 63 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. A coastwide OFL of 2,358 mt is based on the 2005 stock 
assessment with a F50% FMSY proxy. The coastwide 
ABC of 2,254 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/
P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. For the portion of the stock that 
is north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat., the ACL is 1,556 mt, 66 percent of 
the coastwide OFL. A set-aside of 45 mt is deducted from the ACL for the 
Tribal fishery (38 mt), the incidental open access fishery (2 mt), and 
research catch (5 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,511 mt for the 
area north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. For that portion of the stock south 
of north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. the ACL is 401 mt which is 34 percent 
of the coastwide OFL for the portion of the biomass found south of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat reduced by 50 percent as a precautionary 
adjustment. A set-aside of 42 mt is deducted from the ACL for the 
incidental open access fishery (41 mt), and research catch (1 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 359 mt for the area south of 34[deg]27[min] 
N. lat. The sum of the northern and southern area ACLs (1,957 mt) is a 
13 percent reduction from the coastwide ABC.
    y/ Longspine thornyhead. A coastwide stock assessment was conducted 
in 2005 and the stock was estimated to be at 71 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. A coastwide OFL of 3,483 mt is based on the 2005 stock 
assessment with a F50% FMSY proxy. The ABC of 
2,902 mt is a 17 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) 
as it's a category 2 species. For the portion of the stock that is north 
of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat., the ACL is 2,064 mt, and is 79 percent of the 
coastwide OFL for the biomass in that area. A set-aside of 44 mt

[[Page 153]]

is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (30 mt), the incidental 
open access fishery (1 mt), and research catch (13 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 2,020 mt. For that portion of the stock south of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat. the ACL is 366 mt and is 21 percent of the 
coastwide OFL reduced by 50 percent as a precautionary adjustment. A 
set-aside of 3 mt is deducted from the ACL for the incidental open 
access fishery (2 mt), and research catch (1 mt), resulting in a fishery 
HG of 363 mt. The sum of the northern and southern area ACLs (2,430 mt) 
is a 16 percent reduction from the coastwide ABC.
    z/ Cowcod. Final 2012 ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for overfished 
species are contingent upon potential changes to rebuilding plans.
    aa/ Darkblotched rockfish. Final 2012 ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for 
overfished species are contingent upon potential changes to rebuilding 
plans.
    bb/ Yelloweye rockfish. Final 2012 ACLs, ACTs and fishery HGs for 
overfished species are contingent upon potential changes to rebuilding 
plans.
    cc/ California Scorpionfish south was assessed in 2005 and was 
estimated to be at 80 percent of its unfished biomass in 2005. The OFL 
of 132 mt is based on the new assessment with a harvest rate proxy of 
F50%. The ABC of 126 mt is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. Because the stock 
is above B40%, the ACL is set equal to the ABC. A set-aside 
of 2 mt is deducted from the ACL for the incidental open access fishery, 
resulting in a fishery HG of 124 mt.
    dd/ Black rockfish north (Washington). A stock assessment was 
prepared in 2007 for black rockfish north of 45[deg]56[min]N. lat. (Cape 
Falcon, Oregon). The biomass in this area was estimated to be at 53 
percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The OFL from the assessed area 
is based on the 2007 assessment with a harvest rate proxy of 
F50%. The resulting OFL for the area north of 46[deg]16[min] 
N. lat. (the Washington/Oregon border) is 435 mt, which is 97 percent of 
the OFL from the assessed area. The ABC of 415 mt for the area north of 
46[deg]16[min] N. lat. is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The ACL was set 
equal to the ABC, since the stock is above B40%. A set-aside 
of 14 mt for the Tribal fishery results in a fishery HG of 401 mt.
    ee/ Black rockfish south (Oregon and California). A 2007 stock 
assessment was prepared for black rockfish south of 45[deg]56[min] N. 
lat. (Cape Falcon, Oregon) to the southern limit of the stock's 
distribution in Central California. The biomass in the south was 
estimated to be at 70 percent of its unfished biomass in 2007. The OFL 
from the assessed area is based on the 2007 assessment with a harvest 
rate proxy of F50%. Three percent of the OFL from the stock 
assessment prepared for black rockfish north of 45[deg]56[min] N. lat. 
is added to the OFL from the assessed area south of 45[deg]56[min]. The 
resulting OFL for the area south of 46[deg]16[min] N. lat. is 1,169 mt. 
The ABC of 1,117 mt for the south is a 4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 1 species. The ACL was set at 
1,000 mt, which is a constant catch strategy designed to keep the stock 
biomass above B40%. The black rockfish ACL in the area south 
of 46[deg]16[min] N. lat., is subdivided with separate HGs being set for 
the area north of 42[deg] N. lat. (580 mt/58 percent) and for the area 
south of 42[deg] N. lat. (420 mt/42 percent).
    ff/ Minor rockfish north is comprised of three minor rockfish sub-
complexes: Nearshore, shelf, and slope. The OFL of 3,767 mt is the sum 
of OFLs for nearshore (116 mt), shelf (2,197 mt) and slope (1,507 mt) 
north sub-complexes. Each sub-complex OFL is the sum of the OFLs of the 
component species within the complex. The ABCs for the minor rockfish 
complexes and sub-complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.36 for 
category 1 stocks (splitnose and chilipepper rockfish), 0,72 for 
category 2 stocks (greenstriped rockfish and blue rockfish in 
California) and 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 
0.45. The resulting minor rockfish north ABC, which is the summed 
contribution of the ABCs for the contributing species in each sub-
complex (nearshore, shelf, and slope) is 3,414 mt. The ACL of 2,227 mt 
for the complex is the sum of the sub-complex ACLs. The sub-complex ACLs 
are the sum of the component stock ACLs, which are less than or equal to 
the ABC contribution of each component stock. There are no set-asides 
for the nearshore sub-complex, thus the fishery HG is equal to the ACL, 
which is 99 mt. The set-aside for the shelf sub-complex is 43 mt--Tribal 
fishery (9 mt), the incidental open access fishery (26 mt), EFP catch (4 
mt) and research catch (4 mt), resulting in a shelf fishery HG of 925 
mt. The set-aside for the slope sub-complex is 68 mt--Tribal fishery (36 
mt), the incidental open access fishery (19 mt), EFP catch (2) and 
research catch (11 mt), resulting in a slope fishery HG of 1,092 mt.
    gg/ Minor rockfish south is comprised of three minor rockfish sub-
complexes: Nearshore, shelf, and slope. The OFL of 4,291 mt is the sum 
of OFLs for nearshore (1,145 mt), shelf (2,243 mt) and slope (903 mt) 
south sub-complexes. Each sub-complex OFL is the sum of the OFLs of the 
component species within the complex. The ABCs for the minor rockfish 
complexes and sub-complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.36 for 
category 1 stocks (gopher rockfish north of Point Conception, 
blackgill), 0.72 for category 2 stocks (blue rockfish in the assessed 
area, greenstriped rockfish, and bank rockfish) and 1.44 for category 3 
stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting minor rockfish 
south ABC, which is the summed contribution of the ABCs for the 
contributing species in each sub-complex, is 3,712 mt. The

[[Page 154]]

ACL of 2,341 mt for the complex is the sum of the sub-complex ACLs. The 
sub-complex ACLs are the sum of the component stock ACLs, which are less 
than or equal to the ABC contribution of each component stock. There are 
no set-asides for the nearshore sub-complex, thus the fishery HG is 
equal to the ACL, which is 990 mt. The set-asides for the shelf sub-
complex is 13 mt for the incidental open access fishery (9 mt), EFP 
catch (2 mt) and research catch (2 mt), resulting in a shelf fishery HG 
of 701 mt. The set-asides for the slope sub-complex is 27 mt for the 
incidental open access fishery (17 mt), EFP catch (2 mt) and research 
catch (8 mt), resulting in a slope fishery HG of 599 mt.
    hh/ Longnose skate. A stock assessment update was prepared in 2007 
and the stock was estimated to be at 66 percent of its unfished biomass. 
The OFL of 3,128 mt is based on the 2007 stock assessment with an 
FMSY proxy of F45%. The ABC of 2,990 mt is a 4 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) as it's a category 
1 species. The ACL of 1,349 is the 2010 OY and represents a 50 percent 
increase in the average 2004-2006 catch mortality (landings and discard 
mortality). The set-asides for longnose skate is 129 mt for the Tribal 
fishery (56 mt), incidental open access fishery (65 mt), and research 
catch (8 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,220 mt.
    ii/ ``Other fish'' contains all unassessed groundfish FMP species 
that are neither rockfish (family Scorpaenidae) nor flatfish. These 
species include big skate, California skate, leopard shark, soupfin 
shark, spiny dogfish, finescale codling, Pacific rattail, ratfish, 
cabezon off Washington, and kelp greenling. The OFL of 11,150 mt is the 
2010 MSY harvest level minus the 50 mt contribution made for cabezon off 
Oregon, which is a newly assessed stock to be managed with stock-
specific specifications. The ABC of 7,742 mt is a 31 percent reduction 
from the OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.40) as all of the stocks in the ``other 
fish'' complex are category 3 species. The ACL of 5,575 mt is equal to 
the 2010 OY, minus half of the OFL contribution for Cabezon off of 
Oregon (25 mt). The fishery HG is equal to the ACL.

[69 FR 18453, Apr. 7, 2004. Redesignated at 75 FR 60995, Oct. 1, 2010]



      Subpart D_West Coast Groundfish_Limited Entry Trawl Fisheries

    Source: 75 FR 60897, Oct. 1, 2010, unless otherwise noted.



Sec. 660.100  Purpose and scope.

    This subpart covers the Pacific coast groundfish limited entry trawl 
fishery. Under the trawl rationalization program, the limited entry 
trawl fishery consists of the Shorebased IFQ Program, the MS Coop 
Program, and the C/P Coop Program. Nothing in these regulations shall be 
construed to modify, impair, or supersede the operation of any of the 
antitrust laws. The trawl rationalization program creates limited access 
privileges. These limited access privileges, including the QS or IBQ, QP 
or IBQ pounds, and catch history assignments, may be revoked, limited or 
modified at any time in accordance with the MSA--and do not create any 
right of compensation to the holder of the limited access privilege if 
it is revoked, limited, or modified. The trawl rationalization program 
does not create any right, title, or interest in or to any fish before 
the fish is harvested by the holder and shall be considered a grant of 
permission to the holder of the limited access privilege to engage in 
activities permitted by the trawl rationalization program.

[75 FR 78383, Dec. 15, 2010]



Sec. 660.111  Trawl fishery--definitions.

legal midwater groundfish trawl gear.
    (ix) Fish on a Pacific whiting IFQ trip without a valid declaration 
for limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting shorebased IFQ, as 
specified at Sec. 660.13(d)(5)(iv)(A), subpart C.
    (x) Use midwater trawl gear to fish for Pacific whiting within an 
RCA outside the Pacific whiting IFQ fishery primary season as specified 
at Sec. 660.131(b)(2)(iii).
    (xi) Bring a haul on board before all catch from the previous haul 
has been stowed.
    (xii) Process groundfish at-sea (``at-sea processing'') by vessels 
in the Shorebased IFQ Program regardless of the type of gear used, with 
the following exceptions:
    (A) A vessel that is 75-ft (23-m) or less LOA that harvests whiting 
and, in addition to heading and gutting, cuts the tail off and freezes 
the whiting, is not considered to be a catcher/processor nor is it 
considered to be processing fish, and
    (B) A vessel that has a sablefish at-sea processing exemption, 
defined at Sec. 660.25(b)(3)(iv)(D), subpart C may process sablefish 
at-sea.
    (xiii) Retain any IFQ species/species group onboard a vessel unless 
the vessel has observer coverage during the entire trip and until all 
IFQ species from the trip are offloaded. A vessel may deliver IFQ 
species/species groups to more than one IFQ first receiver, but must 
maintain observer coverage until all IFQ species from the trip are 
offloaded. Once transfer of fish begins, all fish aboard the vessel are 
counted as part of the same landing as defined at Sec. 660.11.
    (xiv) Discard IFQ species/species group at sea unless the observer 
has documented or estimated the discards.
    (xv) Begin a new fishing trip until all fish from an IFQ landing 
have been offloaded from the vessel.
    (2) IFQ first receivers. (i) Accept an IFQ landing without a valid 
first receiver site license.
    (ii) Fail to sort fish received from a IFQ landing prior to first 
weighing after offloading as specified at Sec. 660.130(d)(2) for the 
Shorebased IFQ Program, except the vessels declared in to the limited 
entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting shorebased IFQ at Sec. 
660.13(d)(5)(iv)(A), subpart C may weigh catch on a bulk scale before 
sorting as described at Sec. 660.140(j)(2).
    (iii) Process, sell, or discard any groundfish received from an IFQ 
landing that has not been weighed on a scale that is in compliance with 
requirements at Sec. 660.15, subpart C.
    (iv) Transport catch away from the point of landing before that 
catch has been sorted and weighed by federal

[[Page 166]]

groundfish species or species group, and recorded for submission on an 
electronic fish ticket. (If fish will be transported to a different 
location for processing, all sorting and weighing to federal groundfish 
species groups must occur before transporting the catch away from the 
point of landing).
    (v) Receive an IFQ landing without coverage by a catch monitor when 
one is required by regulations, unless NMFS has granted a written waiver 
exempting the IFQ first receiver from the catch monitor coverage 
requirements. On a case-by-case basis, a temporary written waiver may be 
granted by the Assistant Regional Administrator or designee if he/she 
determines that the failure to obtain coverage of a catch monitor was 
due to circumstances beyond the control of the first receiver. The 
duration of the waiver will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
    (vi) Receive an IFQ landing without a NMFS-accepted catch monitoring 
plan or not in accordance with their NMFS-accepted catch monitoring 
plan.

landing that has not been accounted for on an electronic fish ticket 
with the identification number for the vessel that delivered the fish.
    (x) Fail to submit, or submit incomplete or inaccurate information 
on any report, application, or statement required under this part.
    (c) MS and C/P Coop Programs. (1) Process Pacific whiting in the 
fishery management area during times or in areas where at-sea processing 
is prohibited for the sector in which the vessel fishes, unless:

Indian tribe fishing under Sec. 660.50, subpart C;
    (ii) The fish are processed by a waste-processing vessel according 
to Sec. 660.131(g); or
    (iii) The vessel is completing processing of Pacific whiting taken 
on board prior to the close of that vessel's primary season.
    (2) During times or in areas where at-sea processing is prohibited, 
take and retain or receive Pacific whiting, except as cargo or fish 
waste, on a vessel in the fishery management area that already has 
processed Pacific whiting on board. An exception to this prohibition is 
provided if the fish are received within the tribal U&A from a member of 
a Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe fishing under Sec. 660.50, subpart 
C.
    (3) Operate as a waste-processing vessel within 48 hours of a 
primary season for Pacific whiting in which that vessel operates as a 
catcher/processor or mothership, according to Sec. 660.131(g).
    (4) On a vessel used to fish for Pacific whiting, fail to keep the 
trawl doors on board the vessel, when taking and retention is prohibited

vessel that does not have a valid VMS declaration for limited entry 
midwater trawl, Pacific whiting mothership sector, as specified at Sec. 
660.13(d)(5)(iv)(A), subpart C.
    (5) Transfer catch to a vessel that is not registered to an MS 
permit. (i.e. a tender vessel).
    (6) Use a vessel registered to a limited entry permit with a trawl 
endorsement (with or without an MS/CV endorsement) to catch more than 30 
percent of the Pacific whiting allocation for the mothership sector.
    (7) Process more than 45 percent of the annual mothership sector's 
Pacific whiting allocation.
    (8) Catch, take, or harvest fish before all catch from any previous 
haul has been transferred to a single vessel registered to an MS permit.

Sec. 660.120   Trawl fishery--crossover provisions.

    (a) General. In addition to the General provisions listed at Sec. 
660.60, subpart C, the crossover provisions of this section apply to 
vessels operating in the limited entry trawl fishery.
    (b) Operating in north-south management areas with different trip 
limits--(1) Minor Rockfish.
    (i) If a trawl vessel takes and retains minor shelf rockfish south 
of 40[deg]10'N. lat., that vessel is also permitted to take and retain, 
possess, or land yellowtail rockfish up to its cumulative limits north 
of 40[deg]10'N. lat., even if yellowtail rockfish is part of the 
landings from minor shelf rockfish taken and retained south of 
40[deg]10'N. lat. Widow rockfish is included in overall shelf rockfish 
limits for all gear groups.
    (ii) If a trawl vessel takes and retains minor shelf rockfish north 
of 40[deg]10'N. lat., that vessel is also permitted to take and retain, 
possess, or land chilipepper rockfish up to its cumulative limits south 
of 40[deg]10' N. lat., even if chilipepper rockfish is part of the 
landings from minor shelf rockfish taken and retained north of 
40[deg]10' N. lat.
    (2) DTS complex. Differential trawl trip limits for the ``DTS 
complex'' north and south of latitudinal management lines may be 
specified in trip limits, Table 1 (North) and Table 1 (South) of this 
subpart. Vessels operating in the limited entry trawl fishery are 
subject to the crossover provisions in this paragraph when making 
landings that include any one of the four species in the ``DTS 
complex.''
    (3) Flatfish complex. There are often differential trip limits for 
the flatfish complex (butter, curlfin, English, flathead, petrale, rex, 
rock, and sand soles, Pacific sanddab, and starry flounder) north and 
south of latitudinal management lines. Vessels operating in the limited 
entry trawl fishery are subject to the crossover provisions in this 
paragraph when making landings that include any one of the species in 
the flatfish complex.



Sec. 660.130   Trawl fishery--management measures.

    (a) General. Limited entry trawl vessels are those vessels 
registered to a limited entry permit with a trawl endorsement and those 
vessels registered to an MS permit. Most species taken in limited entry 
trawl fisheries will be managed with quotas (see Sec. 660.140), 
allocations or set-asides (see Sec. 660.150 or Sec. 660.160), or 
cumulative trip limits (see trip limits in Tables 1 (North) and 1 
(South) of this subpart), size limits (see Sec. 660.60 (h)(5), subpart 
C), seasons (see Pacific whiting at Sec. 660.131(b), subpart D), gear 
restrictions (see paragraph (b) of this section) and closed areas (see 
paragraph (e) of this section and Sec. Sec. 660.70 through 660.79, 
subpart C). The trawl fishery has gear requirements and harvest limits 
that differ by the type of trawl gear on board and the area fished. 
Groundfish vessels operating south of Point Conception must adhere to 
CCA restrictions (see paragraph (e)(1) of this section and Sec. 660.70, 
subpart C). The trip limits in Tables 1 (North) and 1 (South) of this 
subpart apply to vessels participating in the limited entry groundfish 
trawl fishery and may not be exceeded. Federal commercial groundfish 
regulations are not intended to supersede any more restrictive state 
commercial groundfish regulations relating to federally-managed 
groundfish.
    (b) Trawl gear requirements and restrictions. Trawl nets may be 
fished with or without otter boards, and may use warps or cables to herd 
fish.
    (1) Codends. Only single-walled codends may be used in any trawl. 
Double-walled codends are prohibited.

[[Page 174]]

    (2) Mesh size. Groundfish trawl gear must meet the minimum mesh size 
requirements in this paragraph. Mesh size requirements apply throughout 
the net. Minimum trawl mesh sizes are: Bottom trawl, 4.5 inches (11.4 
cm); midwater trawl, 3.0 inches (7.6 cm). Minimum trawl mesh size 
requirements are met if a 20-gauge stainless steel wedge, less one 
thickness of the metal wedge, can be passed with only thumb pressure 
through at least 16 of 20 sets of two meshes each of wet mesh.
    (3) Chafing gear. Chafing gear may encircle no more than 50 percent 
of the net's circumference. No section of chafing gear may be longer 
than 50 meshes of the net to which it is attached. Chafing gear may be 
used only on the last 50 meshes, measured from the terminal (closed) end 
of the codend. Except at the corners, the terminal end of each section 
of chafing gear on all trawl gear must not be connected to the net. (The 
terminal end is the end farthest from the mouth of the net.) Chafing 
gear must be attached outside any riblines and restraining straps. There 
is no limit on the number of sections of chafing gear on a net.
    (4) Large footrope trawl gear. Large footrope gear is bottom trawl 
gear with a footrope diameter larger than 8 inches (20 cm) (including 
rollers, bobbins or other material encircling or tied along the length 
of the footrope). Fishing with bottom trawl gear with a footrope 
diameter greater than 19 inches (48 cm) (including rollers, bobbins, or 
other material encircling or tied along the length of the footrope) is 
prohibited anywhere in EFH within the EEZ, as defined by latitude/
longitude coordinates at Sec. 660.75, subpart C.
    (5) Small footrope trawl gear. Small footrope gear is bottom trawl 
gear with a footrope diameter of 8 inches (20 cm) or smaller (including 
rollers, bobbins or other material encircling or tied along the length 
of the footrope). Other lines or ropes that run parallel to the footrope 
may not be augmented with material encircling or tied along their length 
such that they have a diameter larger than 8 inches (20 cm). For 
enforcement purposes, the footrope will be measured in a straight line 
from the outside edge to the opposite outside edge at the widest part on 
any individual part, including any individual disk, roller, bobbin, or 
any other device.
    (i) Selective flatfish trawl gear. Selective flatfish trawl gear is 
a type of small footrope trawl gear. The selective flatfish trawl net 
must be a two-seamed net with no more than two riblines, excluding the 
codend. The breastline may not be longer than 3 ft (0.92 m) in length. 
There may be no floats along the center third of the headrope or 
attached to the top panel except on the riblines. The footrope must be 
less than 105 ft (32.26 m) in length. The headrope must be not less than 
30 percent longer than the footrope. An explanatory diagram of a 
selective flatfish trawl net is provided as Figure 1 of part 660, 
subpart D.
    (ii) [Reserved]
    (6) Midwater (or pelagic) trawl gear. Midwater trawl gear must have 
unprotected footropes at the trawl mouth, and must not have rollers, 
bobbins, tires, wheels, rubber discs, or any similar device anywhere on 
any part of the net. The footrope of midwater gear may not be enlarged 
by encircling it with chains or by any other means. Ropes or lines 
running parallel to the footrope of midwater trawl gear must be bare and 
may not be suspended with chains or any other materials. Sweep lines, 
including the bottom leg of the bridle, must be bare. For at least 20 ft 
(6.15 m) immediately behind the footrope or headrope, bare ropes or mesh 
of 16-inch (40.6-cm) minimum mesh size must completely encircle the net. 
A band of mesh (a ``skirt'') may encircle the net under transfer cables, 
lifting or splitting straps (chokers), but must be: over riblines and 
restraining straps; the same mesh size and coincide knot-to-knot with 
the net to which it is attached; and no wider than 16 meshes.
    (c) Prohibitions by limited entry trawl gear type. Management 
measures may vary depending on the type of trawl gear (i.e., large 
footrope, small footrope, selective flatfish, or midwater trawl gear) 
used and/or on board a vessel during a fishing trip, cumulative limit 
period, and the area fished. Trawl nets may be used on and off the 
seabed. For some species or species groups, Table 1 (North) and Table

[[Page 175]]

1 (South) of this subpart provide trip limits that are specific to 
different types of trawl gear: large footrope, small footrope (including 
selective flatfish), selective flatfish, midwater, and multiple types. 
If Table 1 (North) and Table 1 (South) of this subpart provide gear 
specific limits for a particular species or species group, it is 
unlawful to take and retain, possess or land that species or species 
group with limited entry trawl gears other than those listed.
    (1) Fishing with large footrope trawl gear. It is unlawful for any 
vessel using large footrope gear to fish for groundfish shoreward of the 
RCAs defined at paragraph (e)(4) of this section and at Sec. Sec. 
660.70 through 660.74, subpart C. The use of large footrope gear is 
permitted seaward of the RCAs coastwide.
    (2) Fishing with small footrope trawl gear. North of 40[deg]10[min] 
N. lat., it is unlawful for any vessel using small footrope gear (except 
selective flatfish gear) to fish for groundfish or have small footrope 
trawl gear (except selective flatfish gear) onboard while fishing 
shoreward of the RCA defined at paragraph (e) of this section and at 
Sec. Sec. 660.70 through 660.74. South of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., small 
footrope gear is required shoreward of the RCA. Small footrope gear is 
permitted seaward of the RCA coastwide.
    (i) North of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., selective flatfish gear is 
required shoreward of the RCA defined at paragraph (e) of this section 
and at Sec. Sec. 660.70, through 660.74. South of 40[deg]10[min] N. 
lat., selective flatfish gear is permitted, but not required, shoreward 
of the RCA. The use of selective flatfish trawl gear is permitted 
seaward of the RCA coastwide.
    (ii) [Reserved]
    (3) Fishing with midwater trawl gear. North of 40[deg]10' N. lat., 
midwater trawl gear is permitted only for vessels participating in the 
primary Pacific whiting fishery (for details on the Pacific whiting 
fishery see Sec. 660.131, subpart D.) South of 40[deg]10' N. lat., the 
use of midwater trawl gear is prohibited shoreward of the RCA and 
permitted seaward of the RCA.
    (4) More than one type of trawl gear on board. The cumulative trip 
limits in Table 1 (North) or Table 1 (South) of this subpart must not be 
exceeded.
    (i) The following restrictions apply to vessels operating north of 
40[deg]10' N. lat.:
    (A) A vessel may not have both groundfish trawl gear and non-
groundfish trawl gear onboard simultaneously. A vessel may not have both 
bottom trawl gear and midwater trawl gear onboard simultaneously. A 
vessel may have more than one type of limited entry bottom trawl gear on 
board, either simultaneously or successively, during a cumulative limit 
period.
    (B) If a vessel fishes exclusively with large or small footrope 
trawl gear during an entire cumulative limit period, the vessel is 
subject to the small or large footrope trawl gear cumulative limits and 
that vessel must fish seaward of the RCA during that limit period.
    (C) If a vessel fishes exclusively with selective flatfish trawl 
gear during an entire cumulative limit period, then the vessel is 
subject to the selective flatfish trawl gear-cumulative limits during 
that limit period, regardless of whether the vessel is fishing shoreward 
or seaward of the RCA.
    (D) If more than one type of bottom trawl gear (selective flatfish, 
large footrope, or small footrope) is on board, either simultaneously or 
successively, at any time during a cumulative limit period, then the 
most restrictive cumulative limit associated with the bottom trawl gear 
on board during that cumulative limit period applies for the entire 
cumulative limit period, regardless of whether the vessel is fishing 
shoreward or seaward of the RCA.
    (E) If a vessel fishes both north and south of 40[deg]10' N. lat. 
with any type of small footrope gear onboard the vessel at any time 
during the cumulative limit period, the most restrictive trip limit 
associated with the gear on board applies for that trip and will count 
toward the cumulative trip limit for that gear (See crossover provisions 
at Sec. 660.120, subpart D.)
    (F) Midwater trawl gear is allowed only for vessels participating in 
the primary whiting season.
    (ii) The following restrictions apply to vessels operating south of 
40[deg]10' N. lat.:

[[Page 176]]

    (A) A vessel may not have both groundfish trawl gear and non-
groundfish trawl gear onboard simultaneously. A vessel may not have both 
bottom trawl gear and midwater trawl gear onboard simultaneously. A 
vessel may not have small footrope trawl gear and any other type of 
bottom trawl gear onboard simultaneously.
    (B) For vessels using more than one type of trawl gear during a 
cumulative limit period, limits are additive up to the largest limit for 
the type of gear used during that period.
    (C) If a vessel fishes both north and south of 40[deg]10' N. lat. 
with any type of small footrope gear onboard the vessel at any time 
during the cumulative limit period, the most restrictive trip limit 
associated with the gear on board applies for that trip and will count 
toward the cumulative trip limit for that gear (See crossover provisions 
at Sec. 660.120, subpart D.)
    (d) Sorting. Under Sec. 660.12 (a)(8), subpart C, it is unlawful 
for any person to ``fail to sort, prior to the first weighing after 
offloading, those groundfish species or species groups for which there 
is a trip limit, size limit, scientific sorting designation, quota, 
harvest guideline, ACL or ACT or OY, if the vessel fished or landed in 
an area during a time when such trip limit, size limit, scientific 
sorting designation, quota, harvest guideline, ACL or ACT or OY 
applied.'' The States of Washington, Oregon, and California may also 
require that vessels record their landings as sorted on their state 
landing receipt.

    (2) Sorting requirements for the Shorebased IFQ Program--(i) First 
receivers. Fish landed at IFQ first receivers (including shoreside 
processing facilities and buying stations that intend to transport catch 
for processing elsewhere) must be sorted, prior to first weighing after 
offloading from the vessel and prior to transport away from the point of 
landing, except the vessels declared in to the limited entry midwater 
trawl, Pacific whiting shorebased IFQ at Sec. 660.13(d)(5)(iv)(A), 
subpart C, may weigh catch on a bulk scale before sorting as described 
at Sec. 660.140(j)(2).
    (ii) Catcher vessels. All catch must be sorted to the species groups 
specified in paragraph (d)(1) of this section for vessels with limited 
entry permits, except those retaining all catch during a Pacific whiting 
IFQ trip. The catch must not be discarded from the vessel and the vessel 
must not mix catch from hauls until the observer has sampled the catch. 
Prohibited species must be sorted according to the following species 
groups: Dungeness crab, Pacific halibut, Chinook salmon, other salmon. 
Non-groundfish species must be sorted as required by the state of 
landing.
    (3) Sorting requirements for the at-sea sectors of the Pacific 
whiting fishery.
    (i) Pacific whiting at-sea processing vessels may use an accurate 
in-line conveyor or hopper type scale to derive an accurate total catch 
weight prior to sorting. Immediately following weighing of the total 
catch, the catch must be sorted to the species groups specified in 
paragraph (d)(1) of this section and all incidental catch (groundfish 
and non-groundfish species) must be accurately accounted for and the 
weight of incidental catch deducted from the total catch weight to 
derive the weight of target species.
    (ii) Catcher vessels in the MS sector. If sorting occurs on the 
catcher vessel, the catch must not be discarded from the vessel and the 
vessel must not mix catch from hauls until the observer has sampled the 
catch.
    (e) Groundfish conservation areas (GCAs) applicable to trawl 
vessels. A

[[Page 177]]

GCA, a type of closed area, is a geographic area defined by coordinates 
expressed in degrees of latitude and longitude. The latitude and 
longitude coordinates of the GCA boundaries are specified at Sec. Sec. 
660.70 through 660.74, subpart C. A vessel that is fishing within a GCA 
listed in this paragraph (d) with trawl gear authorized for use within a 
GCA may not have any other type of trawl gear on board the vessel. The 
following GCAs apply to vessels participating in the limited entry trawl 
fishery. Additional closed areas that specifically apply to the Pacific 
whiting fisheries are described at Sec. 660.131(c), subpart D.
    (1) Cowcod conservation areas (CCAs). Vessels using limited entry 
trawl gear are prohibited from fishing within the CCAs. See Sec. 660.70 
for the coordinates that define the CCAs. Limited entry trawl vessels 
may transit through the Western CCA with their gear stowed and 
groundfish on board only in a corridor through the Western CCA bounded 
on the north by the latitude line at 33[deg]00.50' N. lat., and bounded 
on the south by the latitude line at 32[deg]59.50' N. lat. It is 
unlawful to take and retain, possess, or land groundfish within the 
CCAs, except as authorized in this paragraph, when those waters are open 
to fishing.
    (2) Farallon islands. Under California law, commercial fishing for 
all groundfish is prohibited between the shoreline and the 10 fm (18 m) 
depth contour around the Farallon Islands. (See Sec. 660.70, subpart C)
    (3) Cordell Banks. Commercial fishing for groundfish is prohibited 
in waters of depths less than 100-fm (183-m) around Cordell Banks as 
defined by specific latitude and longitude coordinates at Sec. 660.70, 
subpart C.
    (4) Trawl rockfish conservation areas. The trawl RCAs are closed 
areas, defined by specific latitude and longitude coordinates which are 
specified at Sec. Sec. 660.70 through 660.74, subpart C. Boundaries for 
the trawl RCAs applicable to groundfish trawl vessels throughout the 
year are provided in the header to Table 1 (North) and Table 1 (South) 
of this subpart and may be modified by NMFS inseason pursuant to Sec. 
660.60(c), subpart C.
    (i) It is unlawful to operate a vessel with trawl gear onboard 
within the trawl RCA, except for the purpose of continuous transiting, 
or when the use of trawl gear is authorized in this section. It is 
lawful to fish with groundfish trawl gear within the trawl RCA only 
under the following conditions: vessels fishing with midwater trawl gear 
on Pacific whiting trips during the primary whiting season, provided a 
valid declaration report has been filed with NMFS OLE, as required at 
Sec. 660.12(d), subpart C; and vessels fishing with demersal seine gear 
between 38[deg] N. lat. and 36[deg] N. lat. shoreward of a boundary line 
approximating the 100 fm (183 m) depth contour as defined at Sec. 
660.73, subpart C, provided a valid declaration report has been filed.
    (ii) Trawl vessels may transit through an applicable GCA, with or 
without groundfish on board, provided all groundfish trawl gear is 
stowed either: below deck; or if the gear cannot readily be moved, in a 
secured and covered manner, detached from all towing lines, so that it 
is rendered unusable for fishing; or remaining on deck uncovered if the 
trawl doors are hung from their stanchions and the net is disconnected 
from the doors. These restrictions do not apply to vessels fishing with 
midwater trawl gear for whiting during a primary season.
    (iii) It is unlawful to take and retain, possess, or land groundfish 
taken with limited entry trawl gear within the trawl RCA, unless 
otherwise authorized in this section.
    (iv) If a vessel fishes in the trawl RCA, it may not participate in 
any fishing on that trip that is prohibited within the trawl RCA. [For 
example, if a vessel fishes in the pink shrimp fishery within the RCA, 
the vessel cannot on the same trip fish in the DTS fishery seaward of 
the RCA.] Nothing in these Federal regulations supersedes any state 
regulations that may prohibit trawling shoreward of the fishery 
management area (3-200 nm).
    (5) Essential fish habitat conservation areas. An EFHCA, a type of 
closed area, is a geographic area defined by coordinates expressed in 
degrees of latitude and longitude at Sec. Sec. 660.75 through 660.79, 
subpart C, where specified types of fishing are prohibited in accordance 
with

[[Page 178]]

Sec. 660.12, subpart C. EFHCAs apply to vessels using bottom trawl gear 
or to vessels using ``bottom contact gear,'' which is defined at Sec. 
660.11, subpart C, to include bottom trawl gear, among other gear types.
    (i) The following EFHCAs apply to vessels operating within the West 
Coast EEZ with bottom trawl gear:
    (A) Seaward of a boundary line approximating the 700-fm (1280-m) 
depth contour. Fishing with bottom trawl gear is prohibited in waters of 
depths greater than 700 fm (1280 m) within the EFH, as defined by 
specific latitude and longitude coordinates at Sec. Sec. 660.75 and 
660.76, subpart C.
    (B) Shoreward of a boundary line approximating the 100-fm (183-m) 
depth contour. Fishing with bottom trawl gear with a footrope diameter 
greater than 8 inches (20 cm) is prohibited in waters shoreward of a 
boundary line approximating the 100-fm (183-m) depth contour, as defined 
by specific latitude and longitude coordinates at Sec. 660.73, subpart 
C.
    (C) EFHCAs for all bottom trawl gear. Fishing with bottom trawl gear 
is prohibited within the following EFHCAs, which are defined by specific 
latitude and longitude coordinates at Sec. Sec. 660.77 through 660.78, 
subpart C: Olympic 2, Biogenic 1, Biogenic 2, Grays Canyon, Biogenic 3, 
Astoria Canyon, Nehalem Bank/Shale Pile, Siletz Deepwater, Daisy Bank/
Nelson Island, Newport Rockpile/Stonewall Bank, Heceta Bank, Deepwater 
off Coos Bay, Bandon High Spot, Rogue Canyon.
    (D) EFHCAs for all bottom trawl gear, except demersal seine gear. 
Fishing with bottom trawl gear except demersal seine gear (defined at 
Sec. 660.11, subpart C) is prohibited within the following EFHCAs, 
which are defined by specific latitude and longitude coordinates at 
Sec. 660.79, subpart C: Eel River Canyon, Blunts Reef, Mendocino Ridge, 
Delgada Canyon, Tolo Bank, Point Arena North, Point Arena South Biogenic 
Area, Cordell Bank/Biogenic Area, Farallon Islands/Fanny Shoal, Half 
Moon Bay, Monterey Bay/Canyon, Point Sur Deep, Big Sur Coast/Port San 
Luis, East San Lucia Bank, Point Conception, Hidden Reef/Kidney Bank 
(within Cowcod Conservation Area West), Catalina Island, Potato Bank 
(within Cowcod Conservation Area West), Cherry Bank (within Cowcod 
Conservation Area West), and Cowcod EFH Conservation Area East.
    (ii) EFHCAs for bottom contact gear, which includes bottom trawl 
gear. Fishing with bottom contact gear, including bottom trawl gear is 
prohibited within the following EFHCAs, which are defined by specific 
latitude and longitude coordinates at Sec. Sec. 660.75 through 660.79: 
Thompson Seamount, President Jackson Seamount, Cordell Bank (50 fm (91 
m) isobath), Harris Point, Richardson Rock, Scorpion, Painted Cave, 
Anacapa Island, Carrington Point, Judith Rock, Skunk Point, Footprint, 
Gull Island, South Point, and Santa Barbara. Fishing with bottom contact 
gear is also prohibited within the Davidson Seamount EFH Area, which is 
defined with specific latitude and longitude coordinates at Sec. 
660.79.

Sec. 660.131   Pacific whiting fishery management measures.

    (a) Sectors--(1) The catcher/processor sector, or C/P Coop Program, 
is composed of catcher/processors registered to a limited entry permit 
with a C/P endorsement.
    (2) The mothership sector, or MS Coop Program, is composed of 
motherships and catcher vessels that harvest Pacific whiting for 
delivery to motherships. Motherships are vessels registered to an MS 
permit, and catcher vessels are vessels registered to a limited entry 
permit with an MS/CV endorsement or vessels registered to a limited 
entry permit without an MS/CV endorsement if the vessel is authorized to 
harvest the coop's allocation.
    (3) The Pacific whiting IFQ fishery is composed of vessels that 
harvest Pacific whiting for delivery shoreside to IFQ first receivers 
during the primary season.
    (b) Pacific whiting seasons--(1) Primary seasons. The primary 
seasons for the Pacific whiting fishery are:
    (i) For the Shorebased IFQ Program, Pacific whiting IFQ fishery, the 
period(s) of the large-scale target fishery

[[Page 179]]

is conducted after the season start date;
    (ii) For catcher/processors, the period(s) when catching and at-sea 
processing is allowed for the catcher/processor sector (after the season 
closes at-sea processing of any fish already on board the processing 
vessel is allowed to continue); and
    (iii) For vessels delivering to motherships, the period(s) when 
catching and at-sea processing is allowed for the mothership sector 
(after the season closes at-sea processing of any fish already on board 
the processing vessel is allowed to continue).
    (2) Different primary season start dates. North of 40[deg]30[min] N. 
lat., different starting dates may be established for the catcher/
processor sector, the mothership sector, and in the Pacific whiting IFQ 
fishery for vessels delivering to IFQ first receivers north of 42[deg] 
N. lat. and vessels delivering to IFQ first receivers between 42[deg] 
through 40[deg]30[min] N. lat.
    (i) Procedures. The primary seasons for the whiting fishery north of 
40[deg]3[min] N. lat. generally will be established according to the 
procedures of the PCGFMP for developing and implementing harvest 
specifications and apportionments. The season opening dates remain in 
effect unless changed, generally with the harvest specifications and 
management measures.
    (ii) Criteria. The start of a primary season may be changed based on 
a recommendation from the Council and consideration of the following 
factors, if applicable: Size of the harvest guidelines for whiting and 
bycatch species; age/size structure of the whiting population; expected 
harvest of bycatch and prohibited species; availability and stock status 
of prohibited species; expected participation by catchers and 
processors; the period between when catcher vessels make annual 
processor obligations and the start of the fishery; environmental 
conditions; timing of alternate or competing fisheries; industry 
agreement; fishing or processing rates; and other relevant information.
    (iii) Primary whiting season start dates and duration. After the 
start of a primary season for a sector of the whiting fishery, the 
season remains open for that sector until the sector allocation of 
whiting or non-whiting groundfish (with allocations) is reached or 
projected to be reached and the fishery season for that sector is closed 
by NMFS. The starting dates for the primary seasons for the whiting 
fishery are as follows:
    (A) Catcher/processor sector--May 15.
    (B) Mothership sector--May 15.
    (C) Shorebased IFQ Program, Pacific whiting IFQ fishery.
    (1) North of 42[deg] N. lat.--June 15;
    (2) Between 42[deg]-40[deg]30[min] N. lat.--April 1; and
    (3) South of 40[deg]30[min] N. lat.--April 15.
    (3) Trip limits in the whiting fishery. The ``per trip'' limit for 
whiting before the regular (primary) season for the shorebased sector is 
announced in Table 1 of this subpart, and is a routine management 
measure under Sec. 660.60(c). This trip limit includes any whiting 
caught shoreward of 100-fm (183-m) in the Eureka, CA area. The ``per 
trip'' limit for other groundfish species for the shorebased sector are 
announced in Table 1 (North) and Table 1 (South) of this subpart and 
apply as follows:
    (i) During the groundfish cumulative limit periods both before and 
after the primary whiting season, vessels may use either small and/or 
large footrope gear, but are subject to the more restrictive trip limits 
for those entire cumulative periods.
    (ii) If, during a primary whiting season, a whiting vessel harvests 
a groundfish species other than whiting for which there is a midwater 
trip limit, then that vessel may also harvest up to another footrope-
specific limit for that species during any cumulative limit period that 
overlaps the start or close of the primary whiting season.
    (c) Closed areas. Vessels fishing in the Pacific whiting primary 
seasons for the Shorebased IFQ Program, MS Coop Program, or C/P Coop 
Program shall not target Pacific whiting with midwater trawl gear in the 
following portions of the fishery management area:
    (1) Klamath river salmon conservation zone. The ocean area 
surrounding the Klamath River mouth bounded on the north by 
41[deg]38.80' N. lat. (approximately 6 nm north of the Klamath River 
mouth), on the west by 124[deg]23' W. long. (approximately 12 nm from 
shore), and

[[Page 180]]

on the south by 41[deg]26.80' N. lat. (approximately 6 nm south of the 
Klamath River mouth).
    (2) Columbia river salmon conservation zone. The ocean area 
surrounding the Columbia River mouth bounded by a line extending for 6 
nm due west from North Head along 46[deg]18' N. lat. to 124[deg]13.30' 
W. long., then southerly along a line of 167 True to 46[deg]11.10' N. 
lat. and 124[deg]11' W. long. (Columbia River Buoy), then northeast 
along Red Buoy Line to the tip of the south jetty.
    (3) Ocean salmon conservation zone. All waters shoreward of a 
boundary line approximating the 100 fm (183 m) depth contour. Latitude 
and longitude coordinates defining the boundary line approximating the 
100 fm (183 m) depth contour are provided at Sec. 660.73, subpart C. 
This closure will be implemented through automatic action, defined at 
Sec. 660.60(d), subpart C, when NMFS projects the Pacific whiting 
fishery may take in excess of 11,000 Chinook within a calendar year.
    (4) Pacific whiting bycatch reduction areas (BRAs). Vessels using 
limited entry midwater trawl gear during the primary whiting season may 
be prohibited from fishing shoreward of a boundary line approximating 
the 75-fm (137-m), 100-fm (183-m) or 150-fm (274-m) depth contours. 
Latitude and longitude coordinates for the boundary lines approximating 
the depth contours are provided at Sec. Sec. 660.72 and 660.73. 
Closures may be implemented inseason for a sector(s) through automatic 
action, defined at Sec. 660.60(d), when NMFS projects that a sector 
will exceed an allocation for a non-whiting groundfish species specified 
for that sector before the sector's whiting allocation is projected to 
be reached.
    (d) Eureka area trip limits. Trip landing or frequency limits may be 
established, modified, or removed under Sec. 660.60 or this paragraph, 
specifying the amount of Pacific whiting that may be taken and retained, 
possessed, or landed by a vessel that, at any time during a fishing 
trip, fished in the fishery management area shoreward of the 100 fathom 
(183 m) contour (as shown on NOAA Charts 18580, 18600, and 18620) in the 
Eureka area (from 43[deg] 00[min] to 40[deg] 30[min] N. lat.). Unless 
otherwise specified, no more than 10,000-lb (4,536 kg) of whiting may be 
taken and retained, possessed, or landed by a vessel that, at any time 
during a fishing trip, fished in the fishery management area shoreward 
of the 100 fm (183 m) contour (as shown on NOAA Charts 18580, 18600, and 
18620) in the Eureka management area (defined at Sec. 660.11).
    (e) At-sea processing. Whiting may not be processed at sea south of 
42[deg]00[min] N. lat. (Oregon-California border), unless by a waste-
processing vessel as authorized under paragraph (g) of this section.
    (f) Time of day. Vessels fishing in the Pacific whiting primary 
seasons for the Shorebased IFQ Program, MS Coop Program or C/P Coop 
Program shall not target Pacific whiting with midwater trawl gear in the 
fishery management area south of 42[deg]00[min] N. lat. between 0001 
hours to one-half hour after official sunrise (local time). During this 
time south of 42[deg]00[min]N. lat., trawl doors must be on board any 
vessel used to fish for whiting and the trawl must be attached to the 
trawl doors. Official sunrise is determined, to the nearest 5[deg] lat., 
in The Nautical Almanac issued annually by the Nautical Almanac Office, 
U.S. Naval Observatory, and available from the U.S. Government Printing 
Office.
    (g) Processing fish waste at sea. A vessel that processes only fish 
waste (a ``waste-processing vessel'') is not considered a whiting 
processor and therefore is not subject to the allocations, seasons, or 
restrictions for catcher/processors or motherships while it operates as 
a waste-processing vessel. However, no vessel may operate as a waste-
processing vessel 48 hours immediately before and after a primary season 
for whiting in which the vessel operates as a catcher/processor or 
mothership. A vessel must meet the following conditions to qualify as a 
waste-processing vessel:
    (1) The vessel makes meal (ground dried fish), oil, or minced 
(ground flesh) product, but does not make, and does not have on board, 
surimi (fish paste with additives), fillets (meat from the side of the 
fish, behind the head and in front of the tail), or headed and gutted 
fish (head and viscera removed).

[[Page 181]]

    (2) The amount of whole whiting on board does not exceed the trip 
limit (if any) allowed under Sec. 660.60(c), subpart C, or Tables 1 
(North) or 1 (South) in subpart D.
    (3) Any trawl net and doors on board are stowed in a secured and 
covered manner, and detached from all towing lines, so as to be rendered 
unusable for fishing.
    (4) The vessel does not receive codends containing fish.
    (5) The vessel's operations are consistent with applicable state and 
Federal law, including those governing disposal of fish waste at sea.

Sec. 660.140  Shorebased IFQ Program.

    (a) General. The Shorebased IFQ Program requirements in this section 
will be effective beginning January 1, 2011, except for paragraphs 
(d)(4), (d)(6), and (d)(8) of this section, which are effective 
immediately. The Shorebased IFQ Program applies to qualified 
participants in the Pacific Coast Groundfish fishery and includes a 
system of transferable QS for most groundfish species or species groups, 
IBQ for Pacific halibut, and trip limits or set-asides for the remaining 
groundfish species or species groups. NMFS will issue a QS permit to 
eligible participants and will establish a QS account for each QS permit 
owner to track the amount of QS or IBQ and QP or IBQ pounds owned by 
that owner. QS permit owners may own QS or IBQ for IFQ species, 
expressed as a percent of the allocation to the Shorebased IFQ Program 
for that species. NMFS will issue QP or IBQ pounds to QS permit owners, 
expressed in pounds, on an annual basis, to be deposited in the 
corresponding QS account. NMFS will establish a vessel account for each 
eligible vessel owner participating in the Shorebased IFQ Program, which 
is independent of the QS permit and QS account. In order to use QP or 
IBQ pounds, a QS permit owner must transfer the QP or IBQ pounds from 
the QS account into the vessel account for the vessel to which the QP or 
IBQ pounds is to be assigned. Harvests of IFQ species may only be 
delivered to an IFQ first receiver with a first receiver site license. 
In addition to the requirements of this section, the Shorebased IFQ 
Program is subject to the following groundfish regulations of subparts C 
and D:
    (1) Regulations set out in the following sections of subpart C: 
Sec. 660.11 Definitions, Sec. 660.12 Prohibitions, Sec. 660.13 
Recordkeeping and reporting, Sec. 660.14 VMS requirements, Sec. 660.15 
Equipment requirements, Sec. 660.16 Groundfish observer program, Sec. 
660.20 Vessel and gear identification, Sec. 660.25 Permits, Sec. 
660.55 Allocations, Sec. 660.60 Specifications and management measures, 
Sec. 660.65 Groundfish harvest specifications, and Sec. Sec. 660.70 
through 660.79 Closed areas.
    (2) Regulations set out in the following sections of subpart D: 
Sec. 660.111 Trawl fishery definitions, Sec. 660.112 Trawl fishery 
prohibitions, Sec. 660.113 Trawl fishery recordkeeping and reporting, 
Sec. 660.120 Trawl fishery crossover provisions, Sec. 660.130 Trawl 
fishery management measures, and Sec. 660.131 Pacific whiting fishery 
management measures.
    (3) The Shorebased IFQ Program may be restricted or closed as a 
result of projected overages within the Shorebased IFQ Program, the MS 
Coop Program, or the C/P Coop Program. As determined necessary by the 
Regional Administrator, area restrictions, season closures, or other 
measures will be used to prevent the trawl sector in aggregate or the 
individual trawl sectors (Shorebased IFQ, MS Coop, or C/P Coop) from 
exceeding an ACL, OY, ACT or formal allocation specified in the PCGFMP 
or regulation at Sec. 660.55, subpart C, or Sec. Sec. 660.140, 
660.150, or 660.160, subpart D.
    (b) Participation requirements and responsibilities--(1) IFQ 
vessels. (i) Vessels must be registered to a groundfish limited entry 
permit, endorsed for trawl gear with no C/P endorsement.
    (ii) To start a fishing trip in the Shorebased IFQ Program, a vessel 
and its owner(s) (as described on the USCG documentation or state 
registration document) must be registered to the same vessel account 
established by NMFS with no deficit (negative balance) for any species/
species group.

[[Page 182]]

    (iii) All IFQ species/species group catch (landings and discards) 
must be covered by QP or IBQ pounds. Any deficit (negative balance in a 
vessel account) must be cured within 30 calendar days from the date the 
deficit from that trip is documented in the vessel account, unless the 
deficit is within the limits of the carryover provision at paragraph 
(e)(5) of this section, in which case the vessel may declare out of the 
IFQ fishery for the remainder of the year in which the deficit occurred, 
and must cure the deficit within 30 days after the issuance of QP or IBQ 
pounds for the following year.
    (iv) Any vessel with a deficit (negative balance) in its vessel 
account is prohibited from fishing that is within the scope of the 
Shorebased IFQ Program until sufficient QP or IBQ pounds are transferred 
into the vessel account to remove any deficit, regardless of the amount 
of the deficit.
    (v) A vessel account may not have QP or IBQ pounds (used and unused 
combined) in excess of the QP Vessel Limit in any year, and for species 
covered by Unused QP Vessel Limit, may not have QP or IBQ pounds in 
excess of the Unused QP Vessel Limit at any time. These amounts are 
specified at paragraph (e)(4) of this section.
    (vi) Vessels must use either trawl gear as specified at Sec. 
660.130(b), or a legal non-trawl groundfish gear under the gear 
switching provisions as specified at Sec. 660.140(k).
    (vii) Vessels that are registered to MS/CV-endorsed permits may be 
used to fish in the Shorebased IFQ Program provided that the vessel is 
registered to a valid Shorebased IFQ Program vessel account.
    (viii) In the same calendar year, a vessel registered to a trawl 
endorsed limited entry permit with no MS/CV or C/P endorsements may be 
used to fish in the Shorebased IFQ Program if the vessel has a valid 
vessel account, and to fish in the mothership sector for a permitted MS 
coop as authorized by the MS coop.
    (ix) Vessels that are registered to C/P-endorsed permits may not be 
used to fish in the Shorebased IFQ Program.
    (2) IFQ first receivers. The IFQ first receiver must:
    (i) Ensure that all catch removed from a vessel making an IFQ 
delivery is weighed on a scale or scales meeting the requirements 
described in Sec. 660.15(c), subpart C;
    (ii) Ensure that all catch is landed, sorted, and weighed in 
accordance with a valid catch monitoring plan as described in Sec. 
660.140(f)(3)(iii), subpart D.
    (iii) Ensure that all catch is sorted, prior to first weighing, by 
species or species groups as specified at Sec. 660.130(d), except the 
vessels declared in to the limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting 
shorebased IFQ at Sec. 660.13(d)(5)(iv)(A), subpart C may weigh catch 
on a before sorting as described at Sec. 660.140(j)(2).
    (iv) Provide uninhibited access to all areas where fish are or may 
be sorted or weighed to NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized personnel, or 
authorized officer at any time when a delivery of IFQ species, or the 
processing of those species, is taking place.
    (v) Ensure that each scale produces a complete and accurate printed 
record of the weight of all catch in a delivery, unless exempted in the 
NMFS-accepted catch monitoring plan.
    (vi) Retain and make available to NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized 
personnel, or an authorized officer, all printed output from any scale 
used to weigh catch, and any hand tally sheets, worksheets, or notes 
used to determine the total weight of any species.
    (vii) Ensure that each delivery of IFQ catch is monitored by a catch 
monitor and that the catch monitor is on site the entire time the 
delivery is being weighed or sorted.
    (viii) Ensure that sorting and weighing is completed prior to catch 
leaving the area that can be monitored from the observation area.
    (c) IFQ species, management areas, and allocations. (1) IFQ species. 
IFQ species are those groundfish species and Pacific halibut in the 
exclusive economic zone or adjacent state waters off Washington, Oregon 
and California, under the jurisdiction of the Council, for which QS and 
IBQ are issued. Groupings and area subdivisions for IFQ species are 
those groupings and area subdivisions for which ACLs or ACTs are 
specified in the Tables 1a through 2d, and those for which there

[[Page 183]]

is an area-specific precautionary harvest policy. The lists of 
individual groundfish species included in the minor shelf complex north 
of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., minor shelf complex south of 40[deg]10[min] 
N. lat., minor slope complex north 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., minor slope 
complex south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., and in the other flatfish 
complex are specified under the definition of ``groundfish'' at Sec. 
660.11. The following are the IFQ species:

    (2) IFQ management areas. A vessel participating in the Shorebased 
IFQ Program may not fish in more than one IFQ management area during a 
trip. IFQ management areas are as follows:
    (i) Between the US/Canada border and 40[deg]10[min] N. lat.,
    (ii) Between 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and 36[deg] N. lat.,
    (iii) Between 36[deg] N. lat. and 34[deg]27[min] N. lat., and
    (iv) Between 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. and the US/Mexico border.
     (3) IFQ program allocations. Allocations for the Shorebased IFQ 
Program are determined for IFQ species as follows:
    (i) For Pacific whiting, the Shorebased IFQ Program allocation is 
specified at Sec. 660.55(i)(2), subpart C, 42 percent.
    (ii) For Sablefish N. of 36[deg] N. lat., the Shorebased IFQ Program 
allocation is the limited entry trawl allocation specified at Sec. 
660.55(h), subpart C, minus any set-asides for the mothership and C/P 
sectors for that species.
    (iii) For IFQ species listed in the trawl/nontrawl allocation table, 
specified at Sec. 660.55(c), subpart C, allocations are determined by 
applying the trawl column percent to the fishery harvest guideline minus 
any set-asides for the mothership and C/P sectors for that species and 
minus allocations for darkblotched rockfish, POP, and widow rockfish.
    (iv) The remaining IFQ species (canary rockfish, bocaccio, cowcod, 
yelloweye rockfish, minor shelf rockfish N. of 40[deg]10' N. lat., and 
minor shelf rockfish S. of 40[deg]10' N. lat., and minor slope rockfish 
S. of 40[deg]10' N. lat.) are allocated through the biennial 
specifications and management measures process minus any set-asides for 
the mothership and C/P sectors for that species.
    (v) For Pacific halibut N. of 40[deg]10' N. lat., the Shorebased IFQ 
Program allocation is specified at 660.55(m).
    (vi) For each IFQ species, NMFS will determine annual sub-
allocations to individual QS accounts by multiplying the percent of QS 
or IBQ registered to the account by the amount of each respective IFQ 
species allocated to the Shorebased IFQ Program for that year. For each 
IFQ species, NMFS will deposit QP or IBQ pounds in the respective QS 
account in the amount of each sub-allocation determined.
    (vii) Reallocations--(A) Reallocation with changes in management 
areas.
    (1) Area subdivision. If at any time after the initial allocation, 
an IFQ species is geographically subdivided, those holding QS or IBQ for 
the IFQ species being subdivided will receive an amount of QS or IBQ for 
each newly

[[Page 184]]

created area that is equivalent to the amount they held for the area 
before it was subdivided.
    (2) Area recombination. When two areas are combined for an IFQ 
species, the QS or IBQ held by individuals in each area will be adjusted 
proportionally such that:
    (i) The total QS or IBQ for the area sums to 100 percent, and
    (ii) A person holding QS or IBQ in the newly created area will 
receive the same amount of total QP or IBQ pounds as they would if the 
areas had not been combined.
    (3) Area line movement. When a management area boundary line is 
moved for an IFQ species, the QS or IBQ held by individuals in each area 
will be adjusted proportionally such that they each maintain their same 
share of the trawl allocation on a coastwide basis (a fishing area may 
expand or decrease, but the individual's QP or IBQ pounds for both areas 
combined wouldn't change because of the change in areas). In order to 
achieve this end, the holders of QS or IBQ in the area being reduced 
will receive QS or IBQ for the area being expanded, such that the total 
QP or IBQ pounds they would be issued will not be reduced as a result of 
the area reduction. Those holding QS or IBQ in the area being expanded 
will have their QS or IBQ reduced such that the total QP or IBQ pounds 
they receive in the year of the line movement will not increase as a 
result of the expansion (nor will it be reduced).
    (B) Reallocation with subdivision of a species group. If at any time 
after the initial allocation an IFQ species which is a species group is 
subdivided, each species or species group resulting from the subdivision 
will be an IFQ species. QS owners for the species group being subdivided 
will receive an amount of QS for each newly created IFQ species that is 
equivalent to the amount they held for the species group before it was 
subdivided. For example, if a person holds one percent of a species 
group before the subdivision, that person will hold one percent of the 
QS for each IFQ species resulting from the subdivision.
    (d) QS permits and QS accounts--(1) General. In order to obtain QS 
and/or IBQ, a person must apply for a QS permit. NMFS will determine if 
the applicant is eligible to own QS and/or IBQ in accordance with 
paragraph (d)(2) of this section. If eligible, NMFS will issue a QS 
permit, and will establish a QS account to track QS and IBQ balances for 
all IFQ species identified at Sec. 660.140(c)(1). NMFS will issue 
initial allocations of QS and IBQ in accordance with paragraph (d)(8) of 
this section. Transfers of QS and IBQ, and of QP or IBQ pounds, are 
subject to provisions at paragraph (d)(3) of this section. QS permit 
owners can monitor the status of their QS and IBQ, and associated QP and 
IBQ pounds, throughout the year in their QS account.
    (i) Annual QS adjustments. On or about January 1 each year, QS 
permit owners will be notified, via the IFQ Web site and their QS 
account, of any adjustments to their QS and/or IBQ allocations, for each 
of the IFQ species. Updated QS and/or IBQ values, if applicable, will 
reflect the results of: any recalculation of initial allocation formulas 
resulting from changes in provisional OYs used in the allocation 
formulas or appeals, any redistribution of QS and IBQ (e.g., resulting 
from permanent revocation of applicable permits, subject to accumulation 
limits), and any transfers of QS and/or IBQ made during the prior year.
    (ii) Annual QP and IBQ pound allocations. QP and IBQ pounds will be 
deposited into QS accounts annually. QS permit owners will be notified 
of QP deposits via the IFQ Web site and their QS account. QP and IBQ 
pounds will be issued to the nearest whole pound using standard rounding 
rules (i.e. decimal amounts less than 0.5 round down and 0.5 and greater 
round up), except that in the first year of the Shorebased IFQ Program, 
issuance of QP for overfished species greater than zero but less than 
one pound will be rounded up to one pound. QS permit owners must 
transfer their QP and IBQ pounds from their QS account to a vessel 
account in order for those QP and IBQ pounds to be fished. QP and IBQ 
pounds must be transferred in whole pounds (i.e. no fraction of a QP or 
IBQ pound can be transferred). All QP and IBQ pounds in a QS account 
must be transferred to a vessel account by September 1 of each year in 
order to be fished.

[[Page 185]]

    (A) Nonwhiting QP annual sub-allocations. NMFS will issue QP for IFQ 
species other than Pacific whiting and Pacific halibut annually by 
multiplying the QS permit owner's QS for each such IFQ species by that 
year's shorebased trawl allocation for that IFQ species. Deposits to QS 
accounts for IFQ species other than Pacific whiting and Pacific halibut 
will be made on or about January 1 each year.
    (B) Pacific whiting QP annual allocation. NMFS will issue QP for 
Pacific whiting annually by multiplying the QS permit owner's QS for 
Pacific whiting by that year's shorebased trawl allocation for Pacific 
whiting.
    (1) In years where the Pacific whiting harvest specification is 
known by January 1, deposits to QS accounts for Pacific whiting will be 
made on or about January 1.
    (2) In years where the Pacific whiting harvest specification is not 
known by January 1, NMFS will issue Pacific whiting QP in two parts. On 
or about January 1, NMFS will deposit Pacific whiting QP based on the 
shorebased trawl allocation multiplied by the lower end of the range of 
potential harvest specifications for Pacific whiting for that year. 
After the final Pacific whiting harvest specifications are established 
later in the year, NMFS will deposit additional QP to the QS account so 
that the total QP issued for that year is equal to the QS permit owner's 
QS for Pacific whiting multiplied by that year's shorebased trawl 
allocation for Pacific whiting.
    (C) Pacific halibut IBQ pounds annual allocation. NMFS will issue 
IBQ pounds for Pacific halibut annually by multiplying the QS permit 
owner's IBQ percent by the Shorebased IFQ Program component of the trawl 
mortality limit for that year (expressed in net weight), dividing by 
0.75 to convert to round weight pounds, and dividing by 0.62 to convert 
from legal sized to legal and non-legal sized halibut. Consistent with 
Sec. 660.55(m), the Shorebased IFQ Program component of the trawl 
mortality limit will be 130,000 pounds of legal size halibut, net weight 
in the first four years of the Shorebased IFQ Program and not to exceed 
100,000 pounds starting in the fifth year of the Shorebased IFQ Program, 
less the set-aside amount of Pacific halibut to accommodate the 
incidental catch in the trawl fishery south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. 
and in the at-sea whiting fishery. Deposits to QS accounts for Pacific 
halibut IBQ pounds will be made on or about January 1 each year.
    (D) For the 2011 trawl fishery, NMFS will issue QP based on the 
following shorebased trawl allocations:

    (2) Eligibility and registration--(i) Eligibility. Only the 
following persons are eligible to own QS permits:
    (A) A United States citizen, that is eligible to own and control a 
U.S. fishing vessel with a fishery endorsement pursuant to 46 U.S.C. 
12113 (general fishery endorsement requirements and 75 percent 
citizenship requirement for entities);
    (B) A permanent resident alien, that is eligible to own and control 
a U.S. fishing vessel with a fishery endorsement pursuant to 46 U.S.C. 
12113 (general fishery endorsement requirements and 75 percent 
citizenship requirement for entities); or
    (C) A corporation, partnership, or other entity established under 
the laws of the United States or any State, that is eligible to own and 
control a U.S. fishing vessel with a fishery endorsement pursuant to 46 
U.S.C. 12113 (general fishery endorsement requirements and 75 percent 
citizenship requirement for entities). However, there is an exception 
for any entity that owns a mothership that participated in the west 
coast groundfish fishery during the allocation period and is eligible to 
own or control that U.S. fishing vessel with a fishery endorsement 
pursuant to sections 203(g) and 213(g) of the AFA.
    (ii) Registration. A QS account will be established by NMFS with the 
issuance of a QS permit. The administrative functions associated with 
the Shorebased IFQ Program (e.g., account registration, landing 
transactions, and transfers) are designed to be accomplished online; 
therefore, a participant must have access to a computer with Internet 
access and must set up online access to their QS account to participate. 
The computer must have Internet browser software installed (e.g., 
Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox); as well as the Adobe 
Flash Player software version 9.0 or greater. NMFS will mail initial QS 
permit owners instructions to set up online access to their QS account. 
NMFS may require QS account owners that are business entities to 
designate an account manager that may act on behalf of the entity and 
their contact information. NMFS will use the QS account to send messages 
to QS permit owners; it is important for QS permit owners to monitor 
their online QS account and all associated messages.
    (3) Renewal, change of permit ownership, and transfers--(i) Renewal. 
(A) QS permits expire at the end of each calendar year, and must be 
renewed between October 1 and November 30 of each year in order to 
remain in force the following year. A complete QS permit renewal package 
must be received by SFD no later than November 30 to be accepted by 
NMFS.
    (B) Notification to renew QS permits will be sent by SFD by 
September 1 each year to the QS permit owner's most recent address in 
the SFD record. The QS permit owner shall provide SFD with notice of any 
address change within 15 days of the change.
    (C) Any QS permit for which SFD does not receive a QS permit renewal 
request by November 30 will have its QS account inactivated by NMFS at 
the end of the calendar year and the QS permit will not be renewed by 
NMFS for the following year. NMFS will not issue QP or IBQ pounds to the 
inactivated QS account associated with the non-renewed QS permit for 
that year. Any QP or IBQ pounds derived from the QS or IBQ in the 
inactivated QS account will be redistributed among all other QS permit 
owners that renewed their permit by the deadline. Redistribution of QP 
or IBQ pounds to QS permit owners will be proportional to the QS or IBQ 
for each IFQ species. A non-renewed QS permit may be renewed in a 
subsequent year by submission of a complete QS permit renewal package 
during the permit renewal period for that year, and NMFS will issue the 
associated QP or IBQ pounds for that year.
    (D) QS permits will not be renewed until SFD has received a complete 
application for a QS permit renewal,

[[Page 187]]

which includes payment of required fees, complete documentation of QS 
permit ownership on the Trawl Identification of Ownership Interest Form 
as required under paragraph (d)(4)(iv) of this section, a complete 
economic data collection form if required under Sec. 660.114, subpart 
D. The QS permit renewal will be considered incomplete until the 
required information is submitted. NMFS may require QS account owners 
that are business entities to designate an account manager and their 
contact information through the QS permit renewal process.
    (E) Effective Date. A QS permit is effective on the date given on 
the permit and remains effective until the end of the calendar year.
    (F) IAD and appeals. QS permit renewals are subject to the permit 
appeals process specified at Sec. 660.25(g), subpart C.
    (ii) Change of permit ownership and transfer restrictions--(A) 
Restriction on the transfer of ownership for QS permits. A QS permit 
cannot be transferred to another individual or entity. The QS permit 
owner cannot change or add additional individuals or entities as owners 
of the permit (i.e., cannot change the registered permit owners as given 
on the permit). Any change to the owner of the QS permit requires the 
new owner(s) to apply for a QS permit, and is subject to accumulation 
limits and approval by NMFS.
    (B) Transfers of QS or IBQ or QP or IBQ pounds. (1) General. 
Transfers of QS or IBQ from one QS account to another QS account and 
transfers of QP or IBQ pounds from a QS account to a vessel account must 
be accomplished via the online QS account. During the year there may be 
situations where NMFS deems it necessary to prohibit transfers (i.e., 
account reconciliation, system maintenance, or for emergency fishery 
management reasons). To make a transfer, a QS permit owner must initiate 
a transfer request by logging onto the online QS account. Following the 
instructions provided on the Web site, the QS permit owner must enter 
pertinent information regarding the transfer request including, but not 
limited to: IFQ species, amount of QS, IBQ, QP, or IBQ pounds to be 
transferred for each IFQ species; name and any other identifier of the 
eligible transferee (e.g., QS permit number, vessel account number); and 
the value of the transferred QS, IBQ, QP, or IBQ pounds for each IFQ 
species. The online system will verify whether all information has been 
entered and whether the transfer complies with ownership limits or 
vessel limits, as applicable. If the information is not accepted, an 
electronic message will record as much in the transferor's QS account 
explaining the reason(s). If the information is accepted, the online 
system will record the pending transfer in both the transferor's QS 
account and the transferee's QS account or vessel account. The 
transferee must approve the transfer by electronic signature in order 
for the transfer to be completed. If the transferee accepts the 
transfer, the online system will record the transfer and confirm the 
transaction in both the transferor's QS account and the transferee's QS 
account or vessel account through a transaction confirmation notice. 
Once the transferee accepts the transaction, the transaction is final 
and permanent.
    (2) Transfer of QS or IBQ between QS accounts. After the second year 
of the trawl rationalization program, QS permit owners may transfer QS 
or IBQ to another QS permit owner, subject to accumulation limits and 
approval by NMFS. QS or IBQ is transferred as a percent, divisible to 
one-thousandth of a percent (i.e., greater than or equal to 0.001%). 
During the first 2 years after implementation of the program, QS or IBQ 
cannot be transferred to another QS permit owner, except under U.S. 
court order or authorization and as approved by NMFS. QS or IBQ may not 
be transferred between December 1 through December 31 each year. QS or 
IBQ may not be transferred to a vessel account.
    (3) Transfer of QP or IBQ pounds from a QS account to a vessel 
account. QP or IBQ pounds must be transferred in whole pounds (i.e. no 
fraction of a QP can be transferred). QP or IBQ pounds must be 
transferred to a vessel account in order to be used. Transfers of QP or 
IBQ pounds from a QS account to a vessel account are subject to vessel 
accumulation limits and NMFS' approval. All QP or IBQ pounds from a QS 
account must be transferred to one or

[[Page 188]]

more vessel accounts by September 1 each year. Once QP or IBQ pounds are 
transferred from a QS account to a vessel account (accepted by the 
transferee/vessel owner), they cannot be transferred back to a QS 
account and may only be transferred to another vessel account. QP or IBQ 
pounds may not be transferred from one QS account to another QS account.
    (C) Effective date--(1) Transfer of QS or IBQ between QS accounts is 
effective on the date approved by NMFS.
    (2) Transfer of QP or IBQ pounds from a QS account to a vessel 
account is effective on the date approved by NMFS.
    (D) IAD and appeals. Transfers are subject to the permit appeals 
process specified at Sec. 660.25 (g), subpart C.
    (4) Accumulation limits--(i) QS and IBQ control limits. QS and IBQ 
control limits are accumulation limits and are the amount of QS and IBQ 
that a person, individually or collectively, may own or control. QS and 
IBQ control limits are expressed as a percentage of the Shorebased IFQ 
Program's allocation.
    (A) Control limits for individual species. No person may own or 
control, or have a controlling influence over, by any means whatsoever 
an amount of QS or IBQ for any individual species that exceeds the 
Shorebased IFQ Program accumulation limits.
    (B) Control limit for aggregate nonwhiting QS holdings. To determine 
how much aggregate nonwhiting QS a person holds, NMFS will convert the 
person's QS to pounds. This conversion will always be conducted using 
the trawl allocations applied to the 2010 OYs, until such time as the 
Council recommends otherwise. Specifically, NMFS will multiply each 
person's QS for each species by the shoreside trawl allocation for that 
species. The person's pounds for all nonwhiting species will be summed 
and divided by the shoreside trawl allocation of all nonwhiting species 
to calculate the person's share of the aggregate nonwhiting trawl quota. 
To determine the shoreside trawl allocation for the purpose of 
determining compliance with the aggregate nonwhiting control limit, for 
species that have specific trawl allocation percentages in Amendment 21, 
NMFS will apply the Amendment 21 trawl allocation percentages to (set 
forth at Sec. 660.55) the 2010 OYs, and where applicable, will deduct 
the preliminary set-asides for the at-sea sectors from Amendment 21. For 
species that do not have specific trawl allocation percentages in 
Amendment 21, NMFS will apply a percentage based on the Northwest 
Fishery Science Center final report on 2010 estimated total fishing 
mortality of groundfish by sector, or, if the final report for 2010 is 
not available, based on the most recent report available.
    (C) The Shorebased IFQ Program accumulation limits are as follows:

     (ii) Ownership--individual and collective rule. The QS or IBQ that 
counts toward a person's accumulation limit will include:
    (A) The QS or IBQ owned by that person, and

[[Page 189]]

    (B) That portion of the QS or IBQ owned by an entity in which that 
person has an economic or financial interest, where the person's share 
of interest in that entity will determine the portion of that entity's 
QS or IBQ that counts toward the person's limit.
    (iii) Control. Control means, but is not limited to, the following:
    (A) The person has the right to direct, or does direct, in whole or 
in part, the business of the entity to which the QS or IBQ are 
registered;
    (B) The person has the right to limit the actions of or replace, or 
does limit the actions of or replace, the chief executive officer, a 
majority of the board of directors, any general partner, or any person 
serving in a management capacity of the entity to which the QS or IBQ 
are registered;
    (C) The person has the right to direct, or does direct, and/or the 
right to prevent or delay, or does prevent or delay, the transfer of QS 
or IBQ, or the resulting QP or IBQ pounds;
    (D) The person, through loan covenants or any other means, has the 
right to restrict, or does restrict, and/or has a controlling influence 
over the day to day business activities or management policies of the 
entity to which the QS or IBQ are registered;
    (E) The person, excluding banks and other financial institutions 
that rely on QS or IBQ as collateral for loans, through loan covenants 
or any other means, has the right to restrict, or does restrict, any 
activity related to QS or IBQ or QP or IBQ pounds, including, but not 
limited to, use of QS or IBQ, or the resulting QP or IBQ pounds, or 
disposition of fish harvested under the resulting QP or IBQ pounds;
    (F) The person, excluding banks and other financial institutions 
that rely on QS or IBQ as collateral for loans, has the right to 
control, or does control, the management of, or to be a controlling 
factor in, the entity to which the QS or IBQ, or the resulting QP or IBQ 
pounds, are registered;
    (G) The person, excluding banks and other financial institutions 
that rely on QS or IBQ as collateral for loans, has the right to cause 
or prevent, or does cause or prevent, the sale, lease or other 
disposition of QS or IBQ, or the resulting QP or IBQ pounds; and
    (H) The person has the ability through any means whatsoever to 
control or have a controlling influence over the entity to which QS or 
IBQ is registered.
    (iv) Trawl identification of ownership interest form. Any person 
that owns a limited entry trawl permit and that is applying for or 
renewing a QS permit shall document those persons that have an ownership 
interest in the limited entry trawl or QS permit greater than or equal 
to 2 percent. This ownership interest must be documented with the SFD 
via the Trawl Identification of Ownership Interest Form. For renewal, if 
the limited entry trawl permit and QS permit have identical ownership 
interest, only one form need be submitted attesting to such ownership. 
SFD will not issue a QS permit unless the Trawl Identification of 
Ownership Interest Form has been completed. Further, if SFD discovers 
through review of the Trawl Identification of Ownership Interest Form 
that a person owns or controls more than the accumulation limits and is 
not authorized to do so under paragraph (d)(4)(v) of this section, the 
person will be notified and the QS permit will be issued up to the 
accumulation limit specified in the QS or IBQ control limit table from 
paragraph (d)(4)(i) of this section. NMFS may request additional 
information of the applicant as necessary to verify compliance with 
accumulation limits.
    (v) Divestiture. Accumulation limits will be calculated by first 
calculating the aggregate nonwhiting QS limit and then the individual 
species QS or IBQ control limits. For QS permit owners (including any 
person who has ownership interest in the owner named on the permit) that 
are found to exceed the accumulation limits during the initial issuance 
of QS permits, an adjustment period will be provided after which they 
will have to completely divest of QS or IBQ in excess of the 
accumulation limits. QS or IBQ will be issued for amounts in excess of 
accumulation limits only for owners of limited entry permits transferred 
to them by November 8, 2008, if such transfers of ownership have been 
registered with NMFS by November 30, 2008. The owner

[[Page 190]]

of any permit transferred after November 8, 2008, or if transferred 
earlier, not registered with NMFS by November 30, 2008, will only be 
eligible to receive an initial allocation for that permit of those QS or 
IBQ that are within the accumulation limits; any QS or IBQ in excess of 
the accumulation limits will be redistributed to the remainder of the 
initial recipients of QS or IBQ in proportion to each recipient's 
initial allocation of QS or IBQ for each species. Any person that 
qualifies for an initial allocation of QS or IBQ in excess of the 
accumulation limits will be allowed to receive that allocation, but must 
divest themselves of the excess QS or IBQ during years three and four of 
the IFQ program. Holders of QS or IBQ in excess of the control limits 
may receive and use the QP or IBQ pounds associated with that excess, up 
to the time their divestiture is completed. At the end of year 4 of the 
IFQ program, any QS or IBQ held by a person (including any person who 
has ownership interest in the owner named on the permit) in excess of 
the accumulation limits will be revoked and redistributed to the 
remainder of the of the QS or IBQ owners in proportion to the QS or IBQ 
holdings in year 5. No compensation will be due for any revoked shares.
    (5) Appeals. An appeal to a QS permit or QS account action follows 
the same process as the general permit appeals process as defined at 
Sec. 660.25(g), subpart C.
    (6) Fees. The Regional Administrator is authorized to charge fees 
for administrative costs associated with the issuance of a QS permit 
consistent with the provisions given at Sec. 660.25(f), subpart C.
    (7) [Reserved]
    (8) Application requirements and initial issuance for QS permit and 
QS/IBQ--(i) Additional definitions. The following definitions are 
applicable to paragraph (d)(8) of this section and apply to terms used 
for the purposes of application requirements and initial issuance of QS 
permits and QS/IBQ:
    (A) Nonwhiting trip means a fishing trip where less than 50 percent 
by weight of all fish reported on the state landing receipt is whiting.
    (B) PacFIN means the Pacific Fisheries Information Network of the 
Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission.
    (C) Relative history means the landings history of a permit for a 
species, year, and area subdivision, divided by the total fleet history 
of the sector for that species, year, and area subdivision, as 
appropriate, or, in the case of shoreside processors, the annual sum of 
the shoreside processor's whiting receipts divided by the aggregate 
annual sum of whiting received by all shoreside processors in that year. 
Relative history is expressed as a percent.
    (D) Shoreside processor means an operation, working on U.S. soil, 
that takes delivery of trawl caught groundfish that has not been 
processed; and that thereafter engages that fish in shoreside 
processing. Entities that received fish that have not undergone at-sea 
processing or shoreside processing and sell that fish directly to 
consumers shall not be considered a processor for purposes of QS 
allocations. Shoreside processing is defined as either of the following:
    (1) Any activity that takes place shoreside; and that involves: 
Cutting groundfish into smaller portions; or freezing, cooking, smoking, 
drying groundfish; or packaging that groundfish for resale into 100 
pound units or smaller for sale or distribution into a wholesale or 
retail market.
    (2) The purchase and redistribution in to a wholesale or retail 
market of live groundfish from a harvesting vessel.
    (E) Whiting trip means a fishing trip where greater than or equal to 
50 percent by weight of all fish reported on the state landing receipt 
is whiting.
    (ii) Eligibility criteria for QS permit and QS/IBQ. Only the 
following persons are eligible to receive a QS permit or QS/IBQ:
    (A) The owner of a valid trawl limited entry permit is eligible to 
receive a QS permit and its associated QS or IBQ amount. Any past 
landings history associated with the current limited entry trawl permit 
accrues to the current permit owner. NMFS will not recognize any person 
as the limited entry permit owner other than the person listed as 
limited entry permit owner in NMFS permit database. If a limited

[[Page 191]]

entry permit has history on state landing receipts and has been combined 
with a permit that has received or will receive a C/P endorsement, the 
trawl limited entry permit does not qualify for QS or IBQ.
    (B) Shoreside processors that meet the recent participation 
requirement of having received deliveries of 1 mt or more of whiting 
from whiting trips in each of any two years from 1998 through 2004 are 
eligible for an initial issuance of whiting QS. NMFS will initially 
identify shoreside processors by reference to Pacific whiting shoreside 
first receivers recorded on fish tickets in the relevant PacFIN dataset 
on July 1, 2010, subject to correction as described in paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(G) of this section.
    (iii) Steps for QS and IBQ allocation formulas. The QS and IBQ 
allocation formulas are applied in the following steps:
    (A) First, for each limited entry trawl permit owner, NMFS will 
determine a preliminary QS allocation for non-whiting trips.
    (B) Second, for each limited entry trawl permit owner, NMFS will 
determine a preliminary QS allocation for whiting trips.
    (C) Third, for each limited entry trawl permit owner, NMFS will 
combine the amounts resulting from paragraphs (d)(8)(iii)(A) and (B) of 
this section.
    (D) Fourth, NMFS will reduce the results for limited entry trawl 
permit owners by 10 percent of non-whiting species as a set aside for 
Adaptive Management Program (AMP) and by 20 percent of whiting for the 
initial issuance of QS allocated to qualifying shoreside processors.
    (E) Fifth, NMFS will determine the whiting QS allocation for 
qualifying shoreside processors from the 20 percent of whiting QS 
allocated to qualifying shoreside processors at initial issuance of QS.
    (F) Sixth, for each limited entry trawl permit owner, NMFS will 
determine the Pacific halibut IBQ allocation.
    (G) Seventh, for limited entry trawl permits transferred after 
November 8, 2008, or if transferred earlier, not registered with NMFS by 
November 30, 2008, for which NMFS determines the owners of such permits 
would exceed the accumulation limits specified at paragraph (d)(4) of 
this section based on the previous steps, NMFS will redistribute the 
excess QS or IBQ to other qualified QS permit owners within the 
accumulation limits.
    (iv) Allocation formula for specific QS and IBQ amounts--(A) 
Allocation formula rules. Unless otherwise specified, the following 
rules will be applied to data for the purpose of calculating an initial 
allocation of QS and IBQ:
    (1) For limited entry trawl permit owners, a permit will be assigned 
catch history or relative history based on the landing history of the 
vessel(s) associated with the permit at the time the landings were made.
    (2) The relevant PacFIN dataset includes species compositions based 
on port sampled data and applied to data at the vessel level.
    (3) Only landings of IFQ species which are caught in the exclusive 
economic zone or adjacent state waters off Washington, Oregon and 
California will be used for calculation of allocation formulas. For the 
purpose of allocation of IFQ species for which the QS or IBQ will be 
subdivided by area, catch areas have been assigned to landings of IFQ 
species reported on state landing receipts based on port of landing.
    (4) History from limited entry permits that have been combined with 
a permit that may qualify for a C/P endorsement and which has shorebased 
permit history will not be included in the preliminary QS and IBQ 
allocation formula, other than in the determination of fleet history 
used in the calculation of relative history for permits that do not have 
a C/P endorsement.
    (5) History of illegal landings and landings made under non-whiting 
EFPs that are in excess of the cumulative limits in place for the non-
EFP fishery will not count toward the allocation of QS or IBQ.
    (6) The limited entry permit's landings history includes the 
landings history of permits that have been previously combined with that 
permit.
    (7) If two or more limited entry trawl permits have been 
simultaneously registered to the same vessel, NMFS will

[[Page 192]]

split the landing history evenly between all such limited entry trawl-
endorsed permits during the time they were simultaneously registered to 
the vessel.
    (8) Unless otherwise noted, the calculation for QS or IBQ allocation 
under paragraph (d)(8) of this section will be based on state landing 
receipts (fish tickets) as recorded in the relevant PacFIN dataset on 
July 1, 2010.
    (9) For limited entry trawl permits, landings under provisional 
``A'' permits that did not become ``A'' permits and ``B'' permits will 
not count toward the allocation of QS or IBQ, other than in the 
determination of fleet history used in the calculation of relative 
history for permits that do not have a C/P endorsement.
    (10) For limited entry trawl permits, NMFS will calculate initial 
issuance of QS separately based on whiting trips and non-whiting trips, 
and will weigh each calculation according to initial issuance 
allocations between whiting trips and non-whiting trips, which are one-
time allocations necessary for the formulas used during the initial 
issuance of QS to create a single Shorebased IFQ Program. The initial 
issuance allocations between whiting and non-whiting trips for canary 
rockfish, bocaccio, cowcod, yelloweye rockfish, minor shelf rockfish N. 
of 40[deg]10', minor shelf rockfish S. of 40[deg]10', and minor slope 
rockfish S. of 40[deg]10' will be determined through the biennial 
specifications process. The initial issuance allocations for the 
remaining IFQ species are as follows:

     (B) Preliminary QS allocation for nonwhiting trips. NMFS will 
calculate the non-whiting preliminary QS allocation differently for 
different species groups, Groups 1 through 3.
    (1) Allocation formula species groups. For the purposes of 
preliminary QS allocation, IFQ species will be grouped as follows:
    (i) Group 1 includes lingcod, Pacific cod, Pacific whiting, 
sablefish north of 36[deg] N. lat., sablefish south of 36[deg] N. lat., 
Dover sole, English sole, petrale sole, arrowtooth flounder, starry 
flounder, other flatfish stock complex, chilipepper rockfish, splitnose 
rockfish, yellowtail rockfish, shortspine thornyhead north of 34[deg]27' 
N. lat., shortspine thornyhead south of 34[deg]27' N. lat., longspine 
thornyhead north of 34[deg]27' N. lat., minor rockfish north slope 
species complex, minor rockfish south slope species complex, minor 
rockfish north shelf species complex, and minor rockfish south shelf 
species complex.
    (ii) Group 2 includes bocaccio, cowcod, darkblotched rockfish, 
Pacific

[[Page 193]]

ocean perch, widow rockfish, and yelloweye rockfish.
    (iii) Group 3 includes canary rockfish.
    (2) Group 1 species: The preliminary QS allocation process indicated 
in paragraph (d)(8)(iii)(A) of this section for Group 1 species follows 
a two-step process, one to allocate a pool of QS equally among all 
eligible limited entry permits and the other to allocate the remainder 
of the preliminary QS based on permit history. Through these two 
processes, preliminary QS totaling 100 percent for each Group 1 species 
will be allocated. In later steps this amount will be adjusted and 
reduced as indicated in paragraph (d)(8)(iii)(C) and (D), to determine 
the QS allocation.
    (i) QS to be allocated equally. The pool of QS for equal allocation 
will be determined using the landings history from Federal limited entry 
groundfish permits that were retired through the Federal buyback program 
(i.e., buyback permit) (70 FR 45695, August 8, 2005). The QS pool 
associated with the buyback permits will be the buyback permit history 
as a percent of the total fleet history for the allocation period. The 
calculation will be based on total absolute pounds with no dropped years 
and no other adjustments. The QS pool will be divided equally among 
qualifying limited entry permits for all QS species/species groups and 
areas in Group 1.
    (ii) QS to be allocated based on each permit's history. The pool for 
QS allocation based on limited entry trawl permit history will be the QS 
remaining after subtracting out the QS allocated equally. This pool will 
be allocated to each qualifying limited entry trawl permit based on the 
permit's relative history from 1994 through 2003. For each limited entry 
trawl permit, NMFS will calculate a set of relative histories using the 
following methodology. First, NMFS will sum the permit's landings by 
each year for each Group 1 species/species group and area subdivision. 
Second, NMFS will divide each permit's annual sum for a particular 
species/species group and area subdivision by the shoreside limited 
entry trawl fleet's annual sum for the same species/species group and 
area subdivision. NMFS will then calculate a total relative history for 
each permit by species/species group and area subdivision by adding all 
relative histories for the permit together and subtracting the three 
years with the lowest relative history for the permit. The result for 
each permit by species/species group and areas subdivision will be 
divided by the aggregate sum of all total relative histories of all 
qualifying limited entry trawl permits for that species/species group 
and area subdivision. NMFS will then multiply the result from this 
calculation by the amount of QS in the pool to be allocated based on 
each permit's history.
    (3) Group 2 species: The preliminary QS allocation step indicated in 
paragraph (d)(8)(iii)(A) of this section will be calculated for each 
limited entry trawl permit using a formula based on QS allocations for 
each limited entry trawl permit for 11 target species, areas of 
distribution of fishing effort as determined from 2003-2006 target 
species catch data from the PacFIN Coastwide Trawl Logbook Database, 
average bycatch ratios for each area as derived from West Coast 
Groundfish Observer Program (WCGOP) data from 2003 through 2006, and the 
non-whiting initial issuance allocation of the limited entry trawl 
allocation amounts for 2011 for each of the 11 target species. These 
data are used in a series of sequential steps to estimate the allocation 
of Group 2 species to each limited entry trawl permit. Paragraphs 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(iii) to (vi) of this section estimate the permit's 
total 2003-2006 target species by area. Paragraphs (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(vii) 
to (xii) of this section project Group 2 species bycatch amounts using 
2003-2006 WCGOP observer ratios and the initial issuance allocation 
applied to the 2011 limited entry trawl allocation. Paragraphs 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(xiv) to (xvii) of this section convert these amounts 
into QS. As with Group 1 species, preliminary QS totaling 100 percent 
for each Group 2 species unit will be allocated and the amount of the 
allocations will be adjusted and reduced as indicated in paragraph 
(d)(8)(iii)(C) and (D) of this section to determine the QS allocation.
    (i) The 11 target species are arrowtooth flounder, starry flounder, 
other flatfish, Dover sole, English sole, petrale sole, minor slope 
rockfish,

[[Page 194]]

shortspine thornyheads, longspine thornyheads, sablefish, and Pacific 
cod.
    (ii) The 8 areas of distribution of fishing effort are defined 
latitudinally and by depth. The latitudinal areas are (a) north of 
47[deg]40 N. lat.; (b) between 47[deg]40 N. lat. and 43[deg]55' N. lat.; 
(c) 43[deg]55' N. lat. and 40[deg]10' N. lat.; and (d) south of 
40[deg]10' N. lat. Each latitudinal area is further divided by depth 
into areas shoreward and seaward of the trawl Rockfish Conservation Area 
as defined at Sec. 660.130(e)(4) of this subpart.
    (iii) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will review the 
permit logbook data for that permit and sum target species catch 
recorded for the years 2003-2006, resulting in total target species 
catch in each area for each permit for the years 2003 through 2006 for 
all 11 target species in aggregate.
    (iv) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will also sum target 
species catch by area into total coastwide target species catch for each 
permit for the years 2003 through 2006 for all 11 target species in 
aggregate. For practicability, seaward or shoreward of the RCA as 
identified in the logbook data is defined as being deeper than or 
shallower than 115 fathoms, respectively.
    (v) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will divide logbook 
aggregate target species catch in each area (paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(iii) of this section) by the permit's total coastwide 
target species catch (paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(iv) of this section) to 
create a set of 8 area catch ratios for each permit. (Note: The sum of 
all area catch ratios equals 1 for each permit).
    (vi) For limited entry trawl permits where the vessel registered to 
the permit did not submit logbooks showing any catch of the 11 target 
species for any of the years 2003 through 2006, NMFS will use the 
following formula to calculate area target catch ratios: (a) NMFS will 
sum by area all limited entry trawl permits' total logbook area target 
catches from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(iii) of this section, (b) NMFS 
will sum coastwide all limited entry trawl permits' total logbook target 
catches across all areas from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(iv) of this 
section, and (c) NMFS will divide these sums (i.e., a/b) to create 
average permit logbook area target catch ratios.
    (vii) NMFS will calculate the 2011 non-whiting short term allocation 
amount for each of the 11 target species by multiplying the limited 
entry trawl allocation amounts for 2011 for each by the corresponding 
initial issuance allocation percentage for the non-whiting sector given 
in paragraph (d)(8)(iii)(A)(10) of this section or determined through 
the biennial specifications process, as applicable.
    (viii) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will obtain the 
percentage of the limited entry trawl permit initial QS allocation for 
each of the 11 target species resulting from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(2) 
of this section.
    (ix) NMFS will calculate each limited entry trawl permit's projected 
non-whiting sector quota pounds for 2011 by multiplying the 2011 non-
whiting sector initial issuance allocation amounts for each of the 11 
target species from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(vii) of this section by 
each permit's target species QS allocation percentage from paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(viii) of this section.
    (x) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will sum the projected 
quota pounds for the 11 target species from paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(ix) of this section to get a total projected weight of 
all 11 target species for the limited entry trawl permit.
    (xi) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will estimate the 
permit's total incidental catch of Group 2 species by area by 
multiplying the projected 2011 total weight of all 11 target species by 
the applicable area catch ratio for each area as calculated in either 
paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(v) of this section (permits with logbook 
data) or paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(vi) of this section (permits without 
logbook data).
    (xii) NMFS will apply WCGOP average bycatch ratios for each Group 2 
species (observed Group 2 species catch/total target species catch) by 
area. The WCGOP average bycatch ratios are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Area                        Shoreward      Seaward

     (xiii) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will calculate 
projected Group 2 species amounts by area by multiplying the limited 
entry trawl permit's projected 2011 total weight of all target species 
by area from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(xi) of this section by the 
applicable average bycatch ratio for each Group 2 species and 
corresponding area of paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(xii) of this section.
    (xiv) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will sum all area 
amounts for each Group 2 species from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(xiii) 
of this section to calculate the total projected amounts of each Group 2 
species for each limited entry trawl permit.
    (xv) NMFS will sum all limited entry trawl permits' projected Group 
2 species amounts from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(xiv) of this section 
to calculate coastwide total projected amounts for each Group 2 species.
    (xvi) NMFS will estimate preliminary QS for each limited entry trawl 
permit for each Group 2 species by dividing each limited entry trawl 
permit's total projected amount of each Group 2 species from paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(xiv) of this section by the coastwide total projected 
amount for that species from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3)(xv) of this 
section.
    (4) Group 3 Species: (i) The preliminary QS allocation step 
indicated in paragraph (d)(8)(iii)(A) of this section will be performed 
in two calculations that result in the division of preliminary QS 
allocation into two pools, one to allocate QS equally among all eligible 
limited entry permits, using the approach identified for Group 1 species 
in paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(2)(i) of this section, and the other to 
allocate QS using a formula based on QS allocations for target species 
and areas fished, using the approach identified for Group 2 species in 
paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(3) of this section, using the following WCGOP 
average bycatch rates:

                                 Canary
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Area                        Shoreward      Seaward

S. of 40[deg]10' N. lat.....................   0.001581194   0.000009132
------------------------------------------------------------------------

     (ii) Through these two processes, preliminary QS totaling 100 
percent for each species will be allocated. In later steps, this amount 
will be adjusted and reduced as indicated in paragraphs (d)(8)(iii)(C) 
and (D) of this section to determine the QS allocation. In combining the 
two QS pools for each permit, the equal allocation portion is weighted 
according to the process in paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(B)(2)(i) of this 
section, and the portion calculated based on allocations for target 
species and areas fished is weighted according to the process in 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(2)(ii) of this section.
    (C) Preliminary QS allocation for whiting trips. The preliminary QS 
allocation based on whiting trips as indicated in paragraph 
(d)(8)(iii)(B) of this section for limited entry trawl permits follows a 
two step process, one to allocate a pool of QS equally among all 
eligible limited entry permits and the other to allocate the remainder 
of the

[[Page 196]]

preliminary QS based on permit history. Through these two processes, 
preliminary QS totaling 100 percent for each species will be allocated. 
In later steps, this amount will be adjusted and reduced, as indicated 
in paragraphs (d)(8)(iii)(C) and (D) of this section, to determine the 
QS allocation.
    (1) QS to be allocated equally. The pool of QS for equal allocation 
will be determined using the whiting trip landings history from Federal 
limited entry groundfish permits that were retired through the Federal 
buyback program (i.e., buyback permit) (70 FR 45695, August 8, 2005). 
For each species, the whiting trip QS pool associated with the buyback 
permits will be the buyback permit history as a percent of the total 
fleet history for the allocation period. The calculation will be based 
on total absolute pounds with no dropped years and no other adjustments. 
The whiting trip QS pool associated with the buyback permits will be 
divided equally among all qualifying limited entry permits for each 
species.
    (2) QS to be allocated based on each permit's history. The pool for 
QS allocation based on each limited entry trawl permit's history will be 
the QS remaining after subtracting out the QS associated with the 
buyback permits allocated equally.
    (i) Whiting QS allocated based on each permit's history. Whiting QS 
based on each limited entry trawl permit's history will be allocated 
based on the permit's relative history from 1994 through 2003. For each 
limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will calculate a whiting relative 
history for each qualifying year, as follows. First, NMFS will sum the 
permit's history of landings of whiting from whiting trips for each 
year. Second, NMFS will divide each permit's annual sum of whiting from 
whiting trips by the shoreside limited entry trawl fleet's annual sum of 
whiting. NMFS will then calculate a total relative history for each 
permit by adding all relative histories for the permit together and 
subtracting the two years with the lowest relative history. NMFS will 
then divide the result for each permit by the total relative history for 
whiting of all qualifying limited entry trawl permits. The result from 
this calculation will then be multiplied by the amount of whiting QS in 
the pool to be allocated based on each permit's history.
    (ii) Other incidentally caught species QS allocation for eligible 
limited entry trawl permit owners. Other incidentally caught species 
from the QS remaining after subtracting out the QS associated with the 
buyback permits will be allocated pro-rata based on each limited entry 
trawl permit's whiting QS from whiting trips. Pro-rata means a percent 
that is equal to the percent of whiting QS.
    (D) QS from limited entry permits calculated separately for non-
whiting trips and whiting trips. NMFS will calculate the portion of QS 
for each species which a permit receives based on non-whiting trips and 
whiting trips separately and will weight each preliminary QS in 
proportion to the initial issuance allocation percentage between whiting 
trips and non-whiting trips for that species in paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(A)(10) of this section or determined through the biennial 
specifications process, as applicable.
    (1) Nonwhiting trips. To determine the amount of QS of each species 
for non-whiting trips for each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will 
multiply the preliminary QS for the permit from paragraph (d)(8)(iii)(A) 
of this section for each species by the initial issuance allocation 
percentage for that species for non-whiting trips.
    (2) Whiting trips. To determine the amount of QS of each species for 
whiting trips for each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will multiply 
the preliminary QS from paragraph (d)(8)(iii)(B) of this section for 
each species by the initial issuance allocation percentage for that 
species for whiting trips.
    (E) QS for each limited entry trawl permit. For each limited entry 
trawl permit, NMFS will add the results for the permit from paragraphs 
(d)(8)(iv)(D)(1) and (D)(2) of this section in order to determine the 
total QS for each species on that permit.
    (F) Adjustment for AMP set-aside and shoreside processor initial 
issuance allocations. NMFS will reduce the non-whiting QS allocation to 
each limited entry trawl permit by 10 percent, for a QS set-aside to 
AMP. NMFS will reduce

[[Page 197]]

the whiting QS allocation to each limited entry trawl permit by 20 
percent for the initial QS allocation to shoreside processors.
    (G) Allocation of initial issuance of whiting QS for shoreside 
processors. NMFS will calculate the amount of whiting QS available to 
shoreside processors from the 20 percent adjustment of whiting QS 
allocations in paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(F) of this section. For each 
eligible shoreside processor, whiting QS will be allocated based on the 
eligible shoreside processor's relative history from 1998 through 2004. 
Only the deliveries for which the shoreside processor is the first 
processor of the fish will be used in the calculation of whiting 
relative history.
    (1) For each shoreside processor which has received deliveries of at 
least 1 mt of whiting from whiting trips in each of any two years from 
1998 through 2004, NMFS will calculate a whiting relative history for 
each qualifying year, as follows. First, NMFS will sum the shoreside 
processor's receipts of whiting for each year. Second, NMFS will 
calculate the relative history for each year by dividing each shoreside 
processor's annual sum of whiting receipts by the aggregate annual sum 
of whiting received by all shoreside processors in that year. NMFS will 
then calculate a total relative history for each shoreside processor by 
adding all relative histories for the shoreside processor together and 
subtracting the two years with the lowest relative history. NMFS will 
then divide the result for each shoreside processor by the aggregate sum 
of all total relative histories for whiting by all qualifying shoreside 
processors. The result from this calculation will then be multiplied by 
20 percent to determine the shoreside processor's whiting QS.
    (2) For purposes of making an initial issuance of whiting QS to a 
shoreside processor, NMFS will attribute landing history to the Pacific 
whiting shoreside first receiver reported on the landing receipt (the 
entity responsible for filling out the state landing receipt) as 
recorded in the relevant PacFIN dataset on July 1, 2010. History may be 
reassigned to a shoreside processor not on the state landings receipt as 
described at paragraph (d)(8)(vi)(B) of this section.
    (H) Allocation of Pacific halibut IBQ for each limited entry trawl 
permit. For each eligible limited entry trawl permit owner, NMFS will 
calculate Pacific halibut individual bycatch quota (IBQ) for the area 
north of 40[deg]10' N. lat. using a formula based on (a) QS allocations 
for each limited entry trawl permit for two target species, (b) areas of 
distribution of fishing effort as determined from 2003-2006 target 
species catch data from the PacFIN Coastwide Trawl Logbook Database, (c) 
average bycatch ratios for each area as derived from WCGOP data from 
2003 through 2006, and (d) the non-whiting initial issuance allocation 
of the limited entry trawl allocation amounts for 2011 for arrowtooth 
and petrale sole. These data are used in a series of sequential steps to 
determine the allocation of IBQ to each limited entry trawl permit. 
Paragraphs (d)(8)(iv)(H)(3) to (6) of this section estimate the permit's 
total 2003-2006 target species by area. Paragraphs (d)(8)(iv)(H)(7) to 
(13) of this section project Pacific halibut bycatch amounts using 2003-
2006 WCGOP observer ratios and the 2011 non-whiting initial issuance 
allocation of the limited entry trawl allocation amounts. Paragraphs 
(d)(8)(iv)(H)(14) to (16) of this section convert these amounts into QS.
    (1) The target species are arrowtooth flounder and petrale sole.
    (2) The four bycatch areas are defined latitudinally and by depth. 
The latitudinal areas are (a) north of 47[deg]30' N. lat., and (b) 
between 40[deg]10' N. lat. and 47[deg]30' N. lat. Each latitudinal area 
is further divided by depth into areas shoreward and seaward of the 
trawl Rockfish Conservation Area as defined at Sec. 660.130(e)(4), 
subpart D.
    (3) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will review the permit 
logbook data for that permit and sum target species catch recorded for 
the years 2003-2006, resulting in total target species catch in each of 
the four areas for each permit for the years 2003 through 2006 for both 
target species in aggregate. For practicability, seaward or shoreward of 
the RCA as identified in the logbook data is defined as being

[[Page 198]]

deeper than or shallower than 115 fathoms, respectively.
    (4) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will also sum the 
target species catch by area into total aggregate target species catch 
for each permit for the years 2003 through 2006.
    (5) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will divide logbook 
aggregate target species catch in each area (paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(3) 
of this section) by the sum of the permit's catch of each target species 
in all four bycatch areas (paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(4) of this section) 
to create a set of area catch ratios for each permit. (Note: The sum of 
all four area catch ratios in aggregate equals 1 for each permit).
    (6) For limited entry trawl permits where the vessel registered to 
the permit did not submit logbooks showing any catch of either of the 
two target species for any of the years 2003 through 2006, NMFS will use 
the following formula to calculate area target catch ratios: NMFS will 
sum by area all limited entry trawl permits' total logbook area target 
catches from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(3) of this section, and sum all 
limited entry trawl permits' total logbook target catches across all 
four areas from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(4) of this section; and divide 
these sums to create average permit logbook area target catch ratios.
    (7) NMFS will calculate the 2011 non-whiting initial issuance 
allocation amount for each of the two target species by multiplying the 
limited entry trawl allocation amounts for 2011 for each by the 
corresponding initial issuance allocation percentage for the non-whiting 
sector given in paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(A)(10) of this section.
    (8) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will obtain the non-
whiting portion of each limited entry trawl permit's initial QS 
allocations for each of the two target species resulting from paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(B)(2) of this section.
    (9) NMFS will calculate each limited entry trawl permit's projected 
non-whiting sector quota pounds for the two target species for 2011 by 
multiplying the 2011 non-whiting sector short term allocation amounts 
for each of the target species by the permit's QS allocation percentage 
for the species from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(8) of this section.
    (10) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will sum the 
projected quota pounds for the two target species from paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(H)(9) of this section to get a total projected weight of the 
two target species for the limited entry trawl permit.
    (11) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will multiply the 
projected 2011 total weight of the two target species by the applicable 
area catch ratio for each area as calculated in either paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(H)(5) of this section (permits with logbook data) or 
paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(6) of this section (permits without logbook 
data).
    (12) NMFS will apply WCGOP average halibut bycatch ratios (observed 
halibut catch/total of two target species catch) by area. The WCGOP 
average halibut bycatch ratios are as follows:

                             Pacific Halibut
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Area                        Shoreward      Seaward
------------------------------------------------------------------------
N. of 47[deg]30' N. lat.....................   0.225737162   0.084214162
40[deg]10' N. lat. to 47[deg]30' N. lat.....   0.086250913   0.033887839
------------------------------------------------------------------------

     (13) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will calculate 
projected Pacific halibut amounts by area by multiplying the limited 
entry trawl permit's projected 2011 total weight of the two target 
species by area from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(11) of this section by the 
average bycatch ratio for the corresponding area of paragraph 
(d)(8)(iv)(H)(12) of this section.
    (14) For each limited entry trawl permit, NMFS will sum all area 
amounts from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(13) of this section to calculate 
the total projected Pacific halibut amount for each limited entry trawl 
permit.
    (15) NMFS will sum all limited entry trawl permits' projected 
Pacific halibut amounts from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(14) of this section 
to calculate aggregate total amounts of Pacific halibut.
    (16) NMFS will estimate preliminary Pacific halibut IBQ for each 
limited entry trawl permit by dividing each limited entry trawl permit's 
total projected Pacific halibut amount from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(14) 
of this section by the aggregate total amounts of

[[Page 199]]

Pacific halibut from paragraph (d)(8)(iv)(H)(15) of this section.
    (I) Redistribution of QS and IBQ. For each limited entry trawl 
permit transferred after November 8, 2008, or if transferred earlier, 
not registered with NMFS by November 30, 2008, for which NMFS determines 
that the owner of such permit would exceed the accumulation limits 
specified at paragraph (d)(4)(i) of this section based on calculation of 
the preceding allocation formulas for all limited entry trawl permits 
owned by such owner using the individual and collective rule described 
at Sec. 660.140(d)(4)(ii), NMFS will redistribute the excess QS or IBQ 
to other qualified QS permit owners within the accumulation limits.
    (v) QS application. Persons may apply for an initial issuance of QS 
and IBQ and a QS permit in one of two ways: Complete and submit a 
prequalified application received from NMFS, or complete and submit an 
application package. The completed application must be either postmarked 
or hand-delivered within normal business hours no later than November 1, 
2010. If an applicant fails to submit a completed application by the 
deadline date, they forgo the opportunity to receive consideration for 
initial issuance of QS and IBQ and a QS permit.
    (A) Prequalified application. A ``prequalified application'' is a 
partially pre-filled application where NMFS has preliminarily determined 
the landings history that may qualify the applicant for an initial 
issuance of QS and IBQ. The application package will include a 
prequalified application (with landings history), a Trawl Identification 
of Ownership Interest form, and any other documents NMFS believes are 
necessary to aid the limited entry permit owner in completing the QS 
application.
    (1) For current trawl limited entry permit owners, NMFS will mail a 
prequalified application to all owners, as listed in the NMFS permit 
database at the time applications are mailed, that NMFS determines may 
qualify for QS or IBQ. NMFS will mail the application by certified mail 
to the current address of record in the NMFS permit database. The 
application will contain the basis of NMFS' calculation of the permit 
owner's QS and IBQ for each species/species group or area.
    (2) For shoreside processors, NMFS will mail a prequalified 
application to those Pacific whiting shoreside first receivers with 
receipts of 1 mt or more of whiting from whiting trips in each of any 
two years from 1998 through 2004, as documented on fish tickets in the 
relevant PacFIN dataset on July 1, 2010. NMFS will mail the prequalified 
application by certified mail to the current address of record given by 
the state in which the entity is registered. For all qualified entities 
who meet the eligibility requirement at paragraph (d)(8)(ii)(B) of this 
section, the application will provide the basis of NMFS' calculation of 
the initial issuance of Pacific whiting QS.
    (B) Request for an application. An owner of a current limited entry 
trawl permit or a Pacific whiting first receiver or shoreside processor 
that believes it is qualified for an initial issuance of QS and IBQ and 
does not receive a prequalified application, must complete an 
application package and submit the completed application to NMFS by the 
application deadline. Application packages are available on NMFS' Web 
site (http://www.nwr.noaa.gov/Groundfish-Halibut/Groundfish-Permits/
index.cfm) or by contacting SFD. An application must include valid 
PacFIN data or other credible information that substantiates the 
applicant's qualification for an initial issuance of QS and IBQ.
    (vi) Corrections to the application. If an applicant does not accept 
NMFS' calculation in the prequalified application either in part or 
whole, the applicant must identify in writing to NMFS which parts the 
applicant believes to be inaccurate, and must provide specific credible 
information to substantiate any requested corrections. The completed 
application and specific credible information must be provided to NMFS 
in writing by the application deadline. Written communication must 
either be post-marked or hand-delivered within normal business hours no 
later than November 1, 2010. Requests for corrections may only be 
granted for the following reasons:
    (A) Errors in NMFS' use or application of data, including:

[[Page 200]]

    (1) Errors in NMFS' use or application of landings data from PacFIN;
    (2) Errors in NMFS' use or application of state logbook data from 
PacFIN;
    (3) Errors in NMFS' application of the QS or IBQ allocation formula;
    (4) Errors in identification of the permit owner, permit 
combinations, or vessel registration as listed in NMFS permit database;
    (5) Errors in identification of ownership information for the first 
receiver or the processor that first processed the fish; and
    (6) Errors in NMFS' use or application of ownership interest 
information.
    (B) Reassignment of Pacific whiting landings history for shoreside 
processors. For shoreside processors, the landing history may be 
reassigned from the Pacific whiting shoreside first receive identified 
in the relevant PacFIN database to a shoreside processor that was in 
fact the first processor of the fish. In order for an applicant to 
request that landing history be reassigned, an authorized representative 
for the Pacific whiting shoreside first receiver identified on the state 
landing receipt must submit, by the application deadline date specified 
in paragraph (d)(8)(vii)(B) of this section for initial issuance of QS, 
a written request that the whiting landings history from the qualifying 
years be conveyed to a shoreside processor. The letter must be signed 
and dated by the authorized representative of the Pacific whiting 
shoreside first receiver named on the state landing receipt and signed 
and dated by the authorized representative of the shoreside processor to 
which the Pacific whiting landing history is requested to be reassigned. 
The letter must identify the dates of the landings history and the 
associated amounts that are requested to be reassigned, and include the 
legal name of the shoreside processor to which the Pacific whiting 
landing history is requested to be reassigned, their date of birth or 
tax identification number, business address, business phone number, fax 
number, and e-mail address. If any document exists that demonstrates 
that the shoreside processor to which the Pacific whiting landing 
history is requested to be reassigned was in fact the first processor of 
the fish, such documentation must be provided to NMFS. NMFS will review 
the information submitted and will make a determination as part of the 
IAD.
    (vii) Submission of the application and application deadline--(A) 
Submission of the application. Submission of the complete, certified 
application includes, but is not limited to, the following:
    (1) The applicant is required to sign and date the application and 
have the document notarized by a licensed Notary Public.
    (2) The applicant must certify that they qualify to own QS and IBQ.
    (3) The applicant must indicate they accept NMFS' calculation of 
initial issuance of QS and IBQ provided in the prequalified application, 
or provide credible information that demonstrates their qualification 
for QS and IBQ.
    (4) The applicant is required to provide a complete Trawl 
Identification of Ownership Interest Form as specified at paragraph 
(d)(4)(iv) of this section.
    (5) Business entities may be required to submit a corporate 
resolution or other credible documentation as proof that the 
representative of the entity is authorized to act on behalf of the 
entity; and
    (6) NMFS may request additional information of the applicant as 
necessary to make an IAD on initial issuance of QS or IBQ.
    (B) Application deadline. A complete, certified application must be 
either postmarked or hand-delivered within normal business hours to 
NMFS, Northwest Region, Permits Office, Bldg. 1, 7600 Sand Point Way, 
NE., Seattle, WA 98115, no later than November 1, 2010. NMFS will not 
accept or review any applications received or postmarked after the 
application deadline. There are no hardship exemptions for this 
deadline.
    (viii) Permit transfer during application period. NMFS will not 
review or approve any request for a change in limited entry trawl permit 
owner at any time after either November 1, 2010 or the date upon which 
the application is received by NMFS, whichever occurs first, until a 
final decision is made by the Regional Administrator on behalf

[[Page 201]]

of the Secretary of Commerce regarding the QS and IBQ to be issued for 
that permit.
    (ix) Initial Administrative Determination (IAD). NMFS will issue an 
IAD for all complete, certified applications received by the application 
deadline date. If NMFS approves an application for initial issuance of 
QS and IBQ, the applicant will receive a QS permit specifying the 
amounts of QS and IBQ for which the applicant has qualified and the 
applicant will be registered to a QS account. If NMFS disapproves or 
partially disapproves an application, the IAD will provide the reasons. 
As part of the IAD, NMFS will indicate whether the QS permit owner 
qualifies for QS or IBQ in amounts that exceed the accumulation limits 
and are subject to divestiture provisions given at paragraph (d)(4)(v) 
of this section, or whether the QS permit owner qualifies for QS or IBQ 
that exceed the accumulation limits and does not qualify to receive the 
excess under paragraph (d)(4)(v) of this section. If the applicant does 
not appeal the IAD within 60 calendar days of the date on the IAD, the 
IAD becomes the final decision of the Regional Administrator acting on 
behalf of the Secretary of Commerce.
    (x) Appeals. For QS permits and QS/IBQ issued under this section, 
the appeals process and timelines are specified at Sec. 660.25(g), 
subpart C. For the initial issuance of QS/IBQ and the QS permits, the 
bases for appeal are described in paragraph (d)(8)(vi) of this section. 
An additional basis for appeal for whiting QS based on shoreside 
processing is an allegation that the shoreside processor or Pacific 
whiting shoreside first receiver to which a QS permit and whiting QS 
have been assigned was not in fact the first processor of the fish 
included in the qualifying landings history. The appellant must submit 
credible information supporting the allegation that they were in fact 
the first shoreside processor for the fish in question. Items not 
subject to appeal include, but are not limited to, the accuracy of 
permit landings data or Pacific whiting shoreside first receiver 
landings data in the relevant PacFIN dataset on July 1, 2010.
    (e) Vessel accounts--(1) General. In order to participate in the 
Shorebased IFQ Program, a vessel must be registered to an eligible 
limited entry trawl permit. A vessel account will be established on 
request for an owner of a vessel registered to an eligible limited entry 
trawl permit in order to track QP and IBQ pounds. QP or IBQ pounds will 
have the same species/species groups and area designations as the QS or 
IBQ from which it was issued. Annually, QS or IBQ (expressed as a 
percent) are converted to QP or IBQ pounds (expressed as a weight) in a 
QS account. QP or IBQ pounds may be transferred from a QS account to a 
vessel account or from one vessel account to another vessel account. QP 
or IBQ pounds are required to cover catch (landings and discards) by 
limited entry trawl vessels of all IFQ species/species groups, except 
for:
    (i) Gear exception. Vessels with a limited entry trawl permit using 
the following gears would not be required to cover groundfish catch with 
QP or Pacific halibut catch with IBQ pounds: Non-groundfish trawl, gear 
types defined in the coastal pelagic species FMP, gear types defined in 
the highly migratory species FMP, salmon troll, crab pot, and limited 
entry fixed gear when the vessel also has a limited entry permit 
endorsed for fixed gear and has declared that they are fishing in the 
limited entry fixed gear fishery.
    (ii) Species exception. QP are not required for the following 
species: Longspine thornyheads south of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat., minor 
nearshore rockfish (north and south), black rockfish (coastwide), 
California scorpionfish, cabezon, kelp greenling, shortbelly rockfish, 
and ``other fish'' (as defined at Sec. 660.11, subpart C, under the 
definition of ``groundfish''). For these species, trip limits remain in 
place as specified in the trip limit tables at Table 1 (North) and Table 
1 (South) of this subpart.
    (2) Eligibility and registration--(i) Eligibility. To establish a 
registered vessel account, a person must own a vessel and that vessel 
must be registered to a groundfish limited entry permit endorsed for 
trawl gear.
    (ii) Registration. A vessel account must be registered with the NMFS 
SFD Permits Office. A vessel account may be established at any time 
during the

[[Page 202]]

year. An eligible vessel owner must submit a request in writing to NMFS 
to establish a vessel account. The request must include the vessel name; 
USCG vessel registration number (as given on USCG Form 1270) or state 
registration number, if no USCG documentation; all vessel owner names 
(as given on USCG Form 1270, or on state registration, as applicable); 
and business contact information, including: Address, phone number, fax 
number, and e-mail. NMFS may require vessel account owners that are 
business entities to designate an account manager that may act on behalf 
of the entity and their contact information. Requests for a vessel 
account must also include the following information: A complete economic 
data collection form as required under Sec. 660.113(b), (c) and (d), 
subpart D, and a complete Trawl Identification of Ownership Interest 
Form as required under paragraph (e)(4)(ii) of this section. The request 
for a vessel account will be considered incomplete until the required 
information is submitted. Any change in the legal name of the vessel 
owner(s) will require the new owner to register with NMFS for a vessel 
account. A participant must have access to a computer with Internet 
access and must set up online access to their vessel account to 
participate. The computer must have Internet browser software installed 
(e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox); as well as the 
Adobe Flash Player software version 9.0 or greater. NMFS will mail 
vessel account owners instructions to set up online access to their 
vessel account. NMFS may require vessel account owners that are business 
entities to designate an account manager that may act on behalf of the 
entity and their contact information. NMFS will use the vessel account 
to send messages to vessel owners in the Shorebased IFQ Program; it is 
important for vessel owners to monitor their online vessel account and 
all associated messages.
    (3) Renewal, change of account ownership, and transfer of QP or IBQ 
pounds--(i) Renewal. (A) Vessel accounts expire at the end of each 
calendar year, and must be renewed between October 1 and November 30 of 
each year in order to ensure the vessel account is active on January 1 
of the following year. A complete vessel account renewal package must be 
received by SFD no later than November 30 to be accepted by NMFS.
    (B) Notification to renew vessel accounts will be issued by SFD 
prior to September 1 each year to the vessel account owner's most recent 
address in the SFD record. The vessel account owner shall provide SFD 
with notice of any address change within 15 days of the change.
    (C) Any vessel account for which SFD does not receive a vessel 
account renewal request by November 30 will have its vessel account 
inactivated by NMFS at the end of the calendar year. NMFS will not issue 
QP or IBQ pounds to the inactivated vessel account. Any QP or IBQ pounds 
in the vessel account will expire and surplus QP or IBQ pounds will not 
be available for carryover. A non-renewed vessel account may be renewed 
in a subsequent year by submission of a complete vessel account renewal 
package.
    (D) Vessel accounts will not be renewed until SFD has received a 
complete application for a vessel account renewal, which includes 
payment of required fees, a complete documentation of permit ownership 
on the Trawl Identification of Ownership Interest Form as required under 
(e)(4)(ii) of this section, and a complete economic data collection form 
as required under Sec. 660.114, subpart D. The vessel account renewal 
will be considered incomplete until the required information is 
submitted. NMFS may require vessel account owners that are business 
entities to designate an account manager that may act on behalf of the 
entity and their contact information.
    (E) Effective Date. A vessel account is effective on the date issued 
by NMFS and remains effective until the end of the calendar year.
    (F) IAD and appeals. Vessel account renewals are subject to the 
appeals process specified at Sec. 660.25(g), subpart C.
    (ii) Change in vessel account ownership. Vessel accounts are non-
transferable and ownership of a vessel account cannot change. If the 
ownership of a vessel changes, then a new vessel account must be opened 
by the new

[[Page 203]]

owner in order for the vessel to participate in the Shorebased IFQ 
Program.
    (iii) Transfer of QP or IBQ pounds--(A) General. QP or IBQ pounds 
may only be transferred from a QS account to a vessel account or between 
vessel accounts. QP or IBQ pounds cannot be transferred from a vessel 
account to a QS account. Transfers of QP or IBQ pounds are subject to 
accumulation limits. QP or IBQ pounds in a vessel account may only be 
transferred to another vessel account. QP or IBQ pounds must be 
transferred in whole pounds (i.e., no fraction of a QP or IBQ pound can 
be transferred). During the year there may be situations where NMFS 
deems it necessary to prohibit transfers (i.e., account reconciliation, 
system maintenance, or for emergency fishery management reasons).
    (B) Transfer procedures. QP or IBQ pound transfers from one vessel 
account to another vessel account must be accomplished via the online 
vessel account. To make a transfer, a vessel account owner must initiate 
a transfer request by logging onto the online vessel account. Following 
the instructions provided on the Web site, the vessel account owner must 
enter pertinent information regarding the transfer request including, 
but not limited to: IFQ species, amount of QP or IBQ pounds to be 
transferred for each IFQ species (in whole pound increments); name and 
any other identifier of the eligible transferee (e.g., USCG 
documentation number or state registration number, as applicable) of the 
eligible vessel account receiving the transfer; and the value of the 
transferred QP or IBQ pounds. The online system will verify whether all 
information has been entered and whether the transfer complies with 
vessel limits, as applicable. If the information is not accepted, an 
electronic message will record as much in the transferor's vessel 
account explaining the reason(s). If the information is accepted, the 
online system will record the pending transfer in both the transferor's 
and the transferee's vessel accounts. The transferee must approve the 
transfer by electronic signature. If the transferee accepts the 
transfer, the online system will record the transfer and confirm the 
transaction in both accounts through a transaction confirmation notice. 
Once the transferee accepts the transaction, the transaction is final 
and permanent. QP or IBQ pounds may be transferred to vessel accounts at 
any time during January 1 through December 14 each year unless otherwise 
notified by NMFS. QP or IBQ pounds may not be transferred between 
December 15 and December 31 each year.
    (4) Accumulation limits--(i) Vessel limits. Vessel accounts may not 
have QP or IBQ pounds in excess of the QP Vessel Limit in any year, and, 
for species covered by Unused QP Vessel Limits, may not have QP or IBQ 
pounds in excess of the Unused QP Vessel Limit at any time. These 
amounts are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Unused  QP

\1\ If widow rockfish is rebuilt before initial allocation of QS, the
  vessel limit will be set at 1.5 times the control limit.

    (ii) Trawl identification of ownership interest form. Any person 
that owns a vessel registered to a limited entry trawl permit and that 
is applying for or renewing a vessel account shall document those 
persons that have an ownership interest in the vessel greater than or 
equal to 2 percent. This ownership interest must be documented with the 
SFD via the Trawl Identification of Ownership Interest Form. SFD will 
not issue a vessel account unless the Trawl Identification of Ownership 
Interest Form has been completed. NMFS may request additional 
information of the applicant as necessary to verify compliance with 
accumulation limits.
    (5) Carryover. The carryover provision allows a limited amount of 
surplus QP or IBQ pounds in a vessel account to be carried over from one 
year to the next or allows a deficit in a vessel account in one year to 
be covered with QP or IBQ pounds from a subsequent year, up to a 
carryover limit. The carryover limit is calculated by multiplying the 
carryover percentage by the cumulative total of QP or IBQ pounds (used 
and unused) in a vessel account for the base year, less any transfers 
out of the vessel account or any previous carryover amounts. The 
percentage used for the carryover provision may be changed during the 
biennial specifications and management measures process.
    (i) Surplus QP or IBQ pounds. A vessel account with a surplus of QP 
or IBQ pounds (unused QP or IBQ pounds) for any IFQ species at the end 
of the fishing year may carryover for use in the immediately following 
year an amount of unused QP or IBQ pounds up to its carryover limit. The 
carryover limit for the surplus is calculated as 10 percent of the 
cumulative total QP or IBQ pounds (used and unused, less any transfers 
or any previous carryover amounts) in the vessel account at the end of 
the year. NMFS will credit the carryover amount to the vessel account in 
the immediately following year. If there is a decline in the OY between 
the base year and the following year in which the QP or IBQ pounds would 
be carried over, the carryover amount will be reduced in proportion to 
the reduction in the OY. Surplus QP or IBQ pounds may not be carried 
over for more than one year. Any amount of QP or IBQ pounds in a vessel 
account and in excess of the carryover amount will expire on December 31 
each year and will not be available for any future use.
    (ii) Deficit QP or IBQ pounds. A vessel account with a deficit 
(negative balance) of QP or IBQ pounds for any IFQ species in the 
current year may cover that deficit with QP or IBQ pounds from the 
following year without incurring a violation if all of the following 
conditions are met:
    (A) The vessel declares out of the Shorebased IFQ Program for the 
year in which the deficit occurred. To declare out of the Shorebased IFQ 
Program, the vessel owner must submit a

[[Page 205]]

signed, dated, and notarized letter to the NMFS Office of Law 
Enforcement, declaring the vessel owner's intent to declare out of the 
Shorebased IFQ Program for the remainder of the year and invoke the 
carryover provision to cover the deficit. (If the deficit occurs less 
than 30 days before the end of the calendar year, declaring out of the 
Shorebased IFQ Program for the remainder of the year is not required, 
however, the vessel owner must notify the NMFS Office of Law Enforcement 
of the owner's intent to invoke the carryover provision to cover the 
deficit.)
    (B) The amount of QP or IBQ pounds required to cover the deficit 
from the current fishing year is less than or equal to the vessel's 
carryover limit for a deficit. The carryover limit for a deficit is 
calculated as 10 percent of the total cumulative QP or IBQ pounds (used 
and unused, less any transfers or any previous carryover amounts) in the 
vessel account 30 days after the date the deficit is documented; and
    (C) Sufficient QP or IBQ pounds are transferred in to the vessel 
account to cure the deficit within 30 days of NMFS' issuance of QP or 
IBQ pounds to QS accounts in the following year.
    (6) Appeals. An appeal to a vessel account action follows the 
appeals process defined at Sec. 660.25(g), subpart C.
    (7) Fees. The Regional Administrator is authorized to charge fees 
for administrative costs associated with the vessel accounts consistent 
with the provisions given at Sec. 660.25(f), subpart C.
    (8) Cost recovery. [Reserved]
    (f) First receiver site license--(1) General. Any IFQ first receiver 
that receives IFQ landings must hold a valid first receiver site 
license. The first receiver site license authorizes the holder to 
receive, purchase, or take custody, control, or possession of an IFQ 
landing at a specific physical site onshore directly from a vessel. Once 
the trawl rationalization program is implemented, a temporary, interim 
first receiver site license will be available by application to NMFS and 
will be valid until June 30, 2011, or until an application for a first 
receiver site license as specified in paragraph (f)(3) of this section 
is approved by NMFS, whichever comes first. An application for an 
interim first receiver site license is subject to all of the 
requirements in this paragraph (f) including the submission of a catch 
monitoring plan, except that the catch monitoring plan in paragraph 
(f)(3)(iii) does not have to have been previously accepted by NMFS and 
the site does not have to have been previously inspected.
    (2) Issuance. (i) First receiver site licenses will only be issued 
to a person registered to a valid license issued by the state of 
Washington, Oregon, or California, and that authorizes the person to 
receive fish from a catcher vessel.
    (ii) A first receiver may apply for a first receiver site license at 
any time during the calendar year.
    (iii) A first receiver site license is valid for one year from the 
date it was issued by NMFS, or until the state license required by 
paragraph (f)(2)(i) of this section is no longer effective, whichever 
occurs first. IFQ first receivers must reapply for a first receiver site 
license each year and whenever a change in the ownership occurs.
    (3) Application process. Persons interested in being licensed as an 
IFQ first receiver must submit a complete application for a first 
receiver site license to NMFS, Northwest Region, Permits Office, ATTN: 
Catch Monitor Coordinator, Bldg. 1, 7600 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 
98115. NMFS will only consider complete applications for approval. A 
complete application includes:
    (i) State license. A copy of a valid license issued by the state in 
which they operate which allows the person to receive fish from a 
catcher vessel.
    (ii) Contact information. (A) The name of the first receiver,
    (B) The physical location of the first receiver, including the 
street address where the IFQ landings will be received and/or processed.
    (C) The name and phone number of the plant manager and any other 
authorized representative who will serve as a point of contact with 
NMFS.
    (iii) A NMFS-accepted catch monitoring plan. All IFQ first receivers 
must prepare and operate under a NMFS-accepted catch monitoring plan. 
NMFS will not issue a first receiver site license to

[[Page 206]]

a processor that does not have a current, NMFS-accepted catch monitoring 
plan.
    (A) Catch monitoring plan review process. NMFS will accept a catch 
monitoring plan if it meets all the requirements specified in paragraph 
(f)(3)(iii)(C) of this section. The site must be inspected by NMFS staff 
or a NMFS designated inspector prior to acceptance to ensure that the 
first receiver conforms to the elements addressed in the catch 
monitoring plan. If NMFS does not accept a catch monitoring plan for any 
reason, a new or revised catch monitoring plan may be submitted.
    (B) Arranging an inspection. The time and place of a monitoring plan 
inspection must be arranged by submitting a written request for an 
inspection as part of the application for a first receiver site license. 
After receiving a complete application for a first receiver site 
license, NMFS will contact the applicant to schedule a site inspection. 
The inspection request must include:
    (1) Name and signature of the person submitting the application and 
the date of the application;
    (2) Address, telephone number, fax number, and email address (if 
available) of the person submitting the application;
    (3) A proposed catch monitoring plan detailing how the IFQ first 
receiver will meet each of the performance standards in paragraph 
(f)(3)(iii)(C) of this section.
    (C) Contents of a catch monitoring plan. The catch monitoring plan 
must:
    (1) Catch sorting. Describe the amount and location of all space 
used for sorting catch, the number of staff assigned to catch sorting, 
and the maximum rate that catch will flow through the sorting area.
    (2) Monitoring for complete sorting. Detail how IFQ first receiver 
staff will ensure that sorting is complete; what steps will be taken to 
prevent unsorted catch from entering the factory or other areas beyond 
the location where catch sorting and weighing can be monitored from the 
observation area; and what steps will be taken if unsorted catch enters 
the factory or other areas beyond the location where catch sorting and 
weighing can be monitored from the observation area.
    (3) Scales used for weighing IFQ landings. Identify each scale that 
will be used to weigh IFQ landings by the type and capacity and describe 
where it is located and what it will be used for. Each scale must be 
appropriate for its intended use.
    (4) Printed record. Identify all scales that will be used to weigh 
IFQ landings that cannot produce a complete printed record as specified 
at Sec. 660.15(c), subpart C. State how the scale will be used, and how 
the plant intends to produce a complete and accurate record of the total 
weight of each delivery.
    (5) Weight monitoring. Detail how the IFQ first receiver will ensure 
that all catch is weighed and the process used to meet the catch 
weighing requirements specified at paragraph (j) of this section. If a 
catch monitoring plan proposes the use of totes in which IFQ species 
will be weighed, or a deduction for the weight of ice, the catch 
monitoring plan must detail how the process will accurately account for 
the weight of ice and/or totes.
    (6) Delivery points. Identify specific delivery points where catch 
is removed from an IFQ vessel. The delivery point is the first location 
where fish removed from a delivering catcher vessel can be sorted or 
diverted to more than one location. If the catch is pumped from the hold 
of a catcher vessel or a codend, the delivery point will be the location 
where the pump first discharges the catch. If catch is removed from a 
vessel by brailing, the delivery point normally will be the bin or belt 
where the brailer discharges the catch.
    (7) Observation area. Designate and describe the observation area. 
The observation area is a location where a catch monitor may monitor the 
flow of fish during a delivery, including: Access to the observation 
area, the flow of fish, and lighting used during periods of limited 
visibility. Standards for the observation area are specified at 
paragraph (i)(4)(ii) of this section.
    (8) Lockable cabinet. Identify the location of a secure, dry, and 
lockable cabinet or locker with the minimum interior dimensions of two 
feet wide by two

[[Page 207]]

feet tall by two feet deep for the exclusive use of the catch monitor, 
NMFS staff, or authorized officers.
    (9) Plant liaison. Identify the designated plant liaison. The plant 
liaison responsibilities are specified at paragraph (i)(6) of this 
section.
    (10) First receiver diagram. The catch monitoring plan must be 
accompanied by a diagram of the plant showing:
    (i) The delivery point(s);
    (ii) The observation area;
    (iii) The lockable cabinet;
    (iv) The location of each scale used to weigh catch; and
    (v) Each location where catch is sorted.
    (D) Catch monitoring plan acceptance period and changes. NMFS will 
accept a catch monitoring plan if it meets the performance standards 
specified in paragraph (f)(3)(iii)(C) of this section. For the first 
receiver site license to remain in effect, an owner or manager must 
notify NMFS in writing of any and all changes made in IFQ first receiver 
operations or layout that do not conform to the catch monitoring plan.
    (E) Changing a NMFS-accepted catch monitoring plan. An owner and 
manager may change an accepted catch monitoring plan by submitting a 
plan addendum to NMFS. NMFS will accept the modified catch monitoring 
plan if it continues to meet the performance standards specified in 
paragraph (f)(3)(iii)(C) of this section. Depending on the nature and 
magnitude of the change requested, NMFS may require an additional catch 
monitoring plan inspection. A catch monitoring plan addendum must 
contain:
    (1) Name and signature of the person submitting the addendum;
    (2) Address, telephone number, fax number and email address (if 
available) of the person submitting the addendum;
    (3) A complete description of the proposed catch monitoring plan 
change.
    (iv) Completed EDC form. A first receiver site license application 
must include a complete economic data collection form as required under 
Sec. 660.113(b), subpart D. The application for a first receiver site 
license will be marked incomplete until the required information is 
submitted.
    (4) Initial administrative determination. For all complete 
applications, NMFS will issue an IAD that either approves or disapproves 
the application. If approved, the IAD will include a first receiver site 
license. If disapproved, the IAD will provide the reasons for this 
determination.
    (5) Effective date. The first receiver site license is effective 
upon approval and issuance by NMFS and will be effective for one year 
from the date of NMFS issuance.
    (6) Reissuance in subsequent years. Existing license holders must 
reapply annually. If the existing license holder fails to reapply, the 
first receiver's site license will expire one year from the date of NMFS 
issuance of the license. The first receiver will not be authorized to 
receive or process groundfish IFQ species if their first receiver site 
license has expired.
    (7) Change in ownership of an IFQ first receiver. If there are any 
changes to the owner of a first receiver registered to a first receiver 
site license during a calendar year, the first receiver site license is 
void. The new owner of the first receiver must apply to NMFS for a first 
receiver site license. A first receiver site license is not 
transferrable by the license holder to any other person.
    (8) Fees. The Regional Administrator is authorized to charge fees 
for administrative costs associated with processing the application 
consistent with the provisions given at Sec. 660.25(f), subpart C.
    (9) Appeals. If NMFS does not accept the first receiver site license 
application through an IAD, the applicant may appeal the IAD consistent 
with the general permit appeals process defined at Sec. 660.25(g), 
subpart C.
    (g) Retention requirements (whiting and non-whiting vessels)--(1) 
Non-whiting vessels. Vessels participating in the Shoreside IFQ Program 
other than vessels participating in the Pacific whiting IFQ fishery 
(non-whiting vessels) may discard IFQ species/species groups, provided 
such discards are accounted for and deducted from QP in the vessel 
account. Non-whiting vessels must discard Pacific halibut and the 
discard mortality must be accounted for and deducted from IBQ pounds in 
the vessel

[[Page 208]]

account. Non-whiting vessels may discard non-IFQ species and non-
groundfish species. The sorting of catch, the weighing and discarding of 
any IBQ and IFQ species, and the retention of IFQ species must be 
monitored by the observer.
    (2) Whiting maximized retention vessels. Maximized retention vessels 
participating in the Pacific whiting IFQ fishery may discard minor 
operational amounts of catch at sea if the observer has accounted for 
the discard (i.e., a maximized retention fishery).
    (3) Whiting vessels sorting at-sea. Vessels participating in the 
Pacific whiting IFQ fishery that sort their catch at sea (whiting 
vessels sorting at-sea) may discard IFQ species/species groups, provided 
such discards are accounted for and deducted from QP in the vessel 
account. Whiting vessels sorting at sea must discard Pacific halibut and 
such discard mortality must be accounted for and deducted from IBQ 
pounds in the vessel account. Whiting vessels sorting at-sea may discard 
non-IFQ species and non-groundfish species. The sorting of catch, 
weighing and discarding of any IFQ or IBQ species must be monitored by 
the observer.
    (h) Observer requirements--(1) Observer coverage requirements. (i) 
Any vessel participating in the Shorebased IFQ Program must carry a 
NMFS-certified observer during any trip until all fish from that trip 
have been offloaded. If a vessel delivers fish from an IFQ trip to more 
than one IFQ first receiver, the observer must remain onboard the vessel 
during any transit between delivery points.
    (ii) Observer deployment limitations and workload. Observer must not 
be deployed for more than 22 calendar days in a calendar month. The 
observer program may issue waivers to allow observers to work more than 
22 calendar days per month when it's anticipated one trip will last over 
20 days or for issues with observer availability due illness or injury 
of other observers.
    (A) If an observer is unable to perform their duties for any reason, 
the vessel is required to be in port within 36 hours of the last haul 
sampled by the observer.
    (B) [Reserved]
    (iii) Refusal to board. Any boarding refusal on the part of the 
observer or vessel must be immediately reported to the observer program 
and NOAA OLE by the observer provider. The observer must be available 
for an interview with the observer program or NOAA OLE if necessary.
    (2) Vessel responsibilities. An operator and/or crew of a vessel 
required to carry an observer must provide:
    (i) Accommodations and food. (A) Accommodations and food for trips 
less than 24 hours must be equivalent to those provided for the crew.
    (B) Accommodations and food for trips of 24 hours or more must be 
equivalent to those provided for the crew and must include berthing 
space, a space that is intended to be used for sleeping and is provided 
with installed bunks and mattresses. A mattress or futon on the floor or 
a cot is not acceptable if a regular bunk is provided to any crew 
member, unless other arrangements are approved in advance by the 
Regional Administrator or their designee.
    (ii) Safe conditions. (A) Maintain safe conditions on the vessel for 
the protection of observers including adherence to all U.S. Coast Guard 
and other applicable rules, regulations, statutes, and guidelines 
pertaining to safe operation of the vessel, including, but not limited 
to rules of the road, vessel stability, emergency drills, emergency 
equipment, vessel maintenance, vessel general condition and port bar 
crossings. An observer may refuse boarding or reboarding a vessel and 
may request a vessel to return to port if operated in an unsafe manner 
or if unsafe conditions are identified.
    (B) Have on board a valid Commercial Fishing Vessel Safety Decal 
that certifies compliance with regulations found in 33 CFR Chapter I and 
46 CFR Chapter I, a certificate of compliance issued pursuant to 46 CFR

    (H) Sorting retained and discarded catch into quota pound groupings.
    (I) Stowing all catch from a haul before the next haul is brought 
aboard.
    (ix) Sampling station. To allow the observer to carry out the 
required duties, the vessel owner must provide an observer sampling 
station that is:
    (A) Accessible. The observer sampling station must be available to 
the observer at all times.
    (B) Limits hazards. To the extent possible, the area should be free 
and clear of hazards including, but not limited to, moving fishing gear, 
stored fishing gear, inclement weather conditions, and open hatches.
    (x) Transfers at sea. Transfers at-sea are prohibited.
    (3) Procurement of observer services--(i) Owners of vessels required 
to carry observers under paragraph (h)(1) of this section must arrange 
for observer services from a permitted observer provider, except that:
    (A) Vessels are required to procure observer services directly from 
NMFS when NMFS has determined and given notification that the vessel 
must carry NMFS staff or an individual authorized by NMFS in lieu of an 
observer provided by a permitted observer provider.
    (B) Vessels are required to procure observer services directly from 
NMFS and a permitted observer provider when NMFS has determined and 
given notification that the vessel must carry NMFS staff and/or 
individuals authorized by NMFS, in addition to an observer provided by a 
permitted observer provider.
    (ii) [Reserved]
    (4) Application to become an observer provider. Any observer 
provider holding a valid permit issued by the North Pacific observer 
program in 2010 can supply observer services to the west coast trawl 
fishery and will be issued a West Coast Groundfish Observer Program 
permit.
    (5) Observer provider responsibilities.
    (i) Provide qualified candidates to serve as observers. Observer 
providers must provide qualified candidates to serve as observers. To be 
qualified, a candidate must have:

www.nwfsc.noaa.gov/research/divisions/fram/observer/index.cfm.

[[Page 210]]

    (B) Observer contracts. The observer provider must have a written 
contract or a written contract addendum signed by the observer and 
observer provider prior to the observer's deployment with the following 
clauses:
    (1) That all the observer's in-season messages and catch reports 
required to be sent while deployed are delivered to the Observer Program 
Office as specified by written Observer Program instructions;
    (2) That the observer inform the observer provider prior to the time 
of embarkation if he or she is experiencing any new mental illness or 
physical ailments or injury since submission of the physician's 
statement as required as a qualified observer candidate that would 
prevent him or her from performing their assigned duties; and
    (3) That every observer completes a basic cardiopulmonary 
resuscitation/first aid course prior to the end of the NMFS West Coast 
Groundfish Observer Training class.
    (iii) Ensure that observers complete duties in a timely manner. An

would prevent him or her from performing his or her assigned duties; and
    (C) Must have successfully completed all NMFS required training and 
briefing before deployment.
    (v) Respond to industry requests for observers. An observer provider 
must provide an observer for deployment pursuant to the terms of the 
contractual relationship with the vessel to fulfill vessel requirements 
for observer coverage under paragraphs (h)(5)(xi)(D) of this section. An 
alternate observer must be supplied in each case where injury or illness 
prevents the observer from performing his or her duties or where the 
observer resigns prior to completion of his or her duties. If the 
observer provider is unable to respond to an industry request for 
observer coverage from a vessel for whom the provider is in a 
contractual relationship due to the lack of available observers by the 
estimated embarking time of the vessel, the provider must report it to 
NMFS at least 4 hours prior to the vessel's estimated embarking time.
    (vi) Provide observer salaries and benefits. An observer provider 
must provide to its observer employees salaries and any other benefits

an offload when the observer has duties and is scheduled to disembark; 
or for a period not to exceed twenty-four hours following the vessel's 
arrival in port when the observer is scheduled to disembark.
    (ii) During all periods an observer is housed on a vessel, the 
observer provider must ensure that the vessel operator or at least one 
crew member is aboard.
    (iii) Otherwise, each observer between vessels, while still under 
contract with a permitted observer provider, shall be provided with 
accommodations in accordance with the contract between the observer and 
the observer provider. If the observer provider is responsible for 
providing accommodations under the contract with the observer, the 
accommodations must be at a licensed hotel, motel, bed and breakfast, or 
other shoreside accommodations that has an assigned bed for each 
observer that no other person may be assigned to for the duration of

    (ix) Verify vessel's safety decal. An observer provider must verify 
that a vessel has a valid USCG safety decal as required under paragraph 
(h)(2)(ii)(B) of this section before an observer may get underway aboard 
the vessel. One of the following acceptable means of verification must 
be used to verify the decal validity:
    (A) An employee of the observer provider, including the observer, 
visually inspects the decal aboard the vessel and confirms that the 
decal is valid according to the decal date of issuance; or
    (B) The observer provider receives a hard copy of the USCG 
documentation of the decal issuance from the vessel owner or operator.
    (x) Maintain communications with observers. An observer provider 
must have an employee responsible for observer activities on call 24 
hours a day to handle emergencies involving observers or problems 
concerning observer logistics, whenever observers are at sea, in 
transit, or in port awaiting vessel reassignment.
    (xi) Maintain communications with the Observer Program Office. An 
observer provider must provide all of the following information by 
electronic transmission (e-mail), fax, or other method specified by 
NMFS.
    (A) Observer training, briefing, and debriefing registration 
materials. This information must be submitted to the Observer Program

vessel, an authorized officer, or NMFS.
    (ix) Suspension and decertification--(A) Suspension and 
decertification review official. The Regional Administrator (or a 
designee) will designate an observer suspension and decertification 
review official(s), who will have the authority to review observer 
certifications and issue initial administrative determinations of 
observer certification suspension and/or decertification.
    (B) Causes for suspension or decertification. The suspension and 
decertification official may initiate suspension or decertification 
proceedings against an observer:
    (1) When it is alleged that the observer has not met applicable 
standards, including any of the following:
    (i) Failed to satisfactorily perform duties as described or directed 
by the observer program; or
    (ii) Failed to abide by the standards of conduct for observers, 
including conflicts of interest;
    (2) Upon conviction of a crime or upon entry of a civil judgment 
for:
    (i) Commission of fraud or other violation in connection with 
obtaining or attempting to obtain certification, or in performing the 
duties as specified in writing by the NMFS Observer Program;
    (ii) Commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, 
falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, or 
receiving stolen property;
    (iii) Commission of any other offense indicating a lack of integrity 
or honesty that seriously and directly affects the fitness of observers.
    (C) Issuance of initial administrative determination. Upon 
determination that suspension or decertification is warranted, the 
suspension/decertification official will issue a written IAD to the 
observer via certified mail at the observer's most current address 
provided to NMFS. The IAD will identify whether a certification is 
suspended or revoked and will identify the specific reasons for the 
action taken. Decertification is effective 30 calendar days after the 
date on the IAD, unless there is an appeal.
    (D) Appeals. A certified observer who receives an IAD that suspends 
or revokes his or her observer certification may appeal the 
determination within 30 calendar days after the date on the IAD to the 
Office of Administrative Appeals pursuant to Sec. 679.43.
    (i) Catch monitor requirements for IFQ first receivers--(1) Catch 
monitor coverage requirements. A catch monitor is required be present at 
each IFQ first receiver whenever an IFQ landing is received, unless the 
first receiver has

[[Page 217]]

been granted a written waiver from the catch monitor requirements by 
NMFS.
    (2) Procurement of catch monitor services. Owners or managers of 
each IFQ first receiver must arrange for catch monitor services from a 
certified catch monitor provider prior to accepting IFQ landings.
    (3) Catch monitor safety. (i) Each IFQ first receiver must adhere to 
all applicable rules, regulations, or statutes pertaining to safe 
operation and maintenance of a processing and/or receiving facility.
    (ii) The working hours of each individual catch monitor will be 
limited as follows:
    (A) An individual catch monitor shall not be required or permitted 
to work more than 16 hours per calendar day, with maximum of 14 hours 
being work other than the summary and submission of catch monitor data.
    (B) Following monitoring shift of more than 10 hours, each catch 
monitor must be provided with a minimum 6 hours break before they may 
resume monitoring.
    (4) Catch monitor access. (i) Each IFQ first receiver must allow 
catch monitors free and unobstructed access to the catch throughout the 
sorting process and the weighing process.
    (ii) The IFQ first receiver must ensure that there is an observation 
area available to the catch monitor that meets the following standards:
    (A) Access to the observation area. The observation area must be 
freely accessible to NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized personnel, or 
authorized officers at any time a valid catch monitoring plan is 
required.
    (B) Monitoring the flow of fish. The catch monitor must have an 
unobstructed view or otherwise be able to monitor the entire flow of 
fish between the delivery point and a location where all sorting has 
takes place and each species has been weighed.
    (C) Adequate lighting. Adequate lighting must be provided during 
periods of limited visibility.
    (iii) Each IFQ first receiver must allow catch monitors free and 
unobstructed access to any documentation required by regulation 
including fish tickets, scale printouts and scale test results.
    (5) Lockable cabinet. Each IFQ first receiver must provide a secure, 
dry, and lockable cabinet or locker with the minimum interior dimensions 
of two feet wide by two feet tall by two feet deep for the exclusive use 
the catch monitor and NMFS staff or NMFS-authorized agents.
    (6) Plant liaison for the catch monitor. Each IFQ first receiver 
must designate a plant liaison. The plant liaison is responsible for:
    (i) Orienting new catch monitors to the facility;
    (ii) Assisting in the resolution of catch monitoring concerns; and
    (iii) Informing NMFS if changes must be made to the catch monitoring 
plan.
    (7) Reasonable assistance. Each IFQ first receiver must provide 
reasonable assistance to the catch monitors to enable each catch monitor 
to carry out his or her duties. Reasonable assistance includes, but is 
not limited to: informing the monitor when bycatch species will be 
weighed, and providing a secure place to store equipment and gear.
    (j) Catch weighing requirements--(1) Catch monitoring plan. All 
first receivers must operate under a NMFS-accepted catch monitoring 
plan.
    (2) Sorting and weighing IFQ landings--(i) Approved scales. The IFQ 
first receiver must ensure that all IFQ species received from a vessel 
making an IFQ landing are weighed on a scale(s) that meets the 
requirements specified at Sec. 660.15(c).
    (ii) Printed record. All scales identified in the catch monitoring 
plan accepted by NMFS during the first receiver site license application 
process, must produce a printed record for each delivery, or portion of 
a delivery, weighed on that scale, with the following exception: If 
approved by NMFS as part of the catch monitoring plan, scales not 
designed for automatic bulk weighing may be exempted from part or all of 
the printed record requirements. The printed record must include:
    (A) The first receiver's name;
    (B) The weight of each load in the weighing cycle;
    (C) The total weight of fish in each landing, or portion of the 
landing that was weighed on that scale;

[[Page 218]]

    (D) The date the information is printed; and
    (E) The name and vessel registration or documentation number of the 
vessel making the delivery. The scale operator may write this 
information on the scale printout in ink at the time of printing.
    (iii) Scales that may be exempt from printed report. An IFQ first 
receiver that receives no more than 200,000 pounds of groundfish in any 
calendar month will be exempt from the requirement to produce a printed 
record provided that:
    (A) The first receiver has not previously operated under a catch 
monitoring plan where a printed record was required;
    (B) The first receiver ensures that all catch is weighed; and
    (C) The catch monitor, NMFS staff, or authorized officer can verify 
that all catch is weighed.
    (iv) Retention of printed records. An IFQ first receiver must 
maintain printouts on site until the end of the fishing year during 
which the printouts were made and make them available upon request by 
NMFS staff or an authorized officer for 3 years after the end of the 
fishing year during which the printout was made.
    (v) Weight monitoring. An IFQ first receiver must ensure that it is 
possible for the catch monitor, NMFS staff, or authorized officer to 
verify the weighing of all catch.
    (vi) Catch sorting. All fish delivered to the plant must be sorted 
and weighed by species as specified at Sec. 660.130(d).
    (vii) Complete sorting. Sorting and weighing must be completed prior 
to catch leaving the area that can be monitored from the catch monitor's 
observation area.
    (viii) Pacific whiting. For Pacific Whiting taken with midwater 
trawl gear, IFQ first receivers may use an in-line conveyor or hopper 
type scale to derive an accurate total catch weight prior to sorting. 
Immediately following weighing of the total catch and prior to 
processing or transport away from the point of landing, the catch must 
be sorted to the species groups specified at Sec. 660.130(d) and all 
incidental catch (groundfish and non groundfish species) must be 
accurately weighed and the weight of incidental catch deducted from the 
total catch weight to derive the weight of target species.
    (ix) For all other IFQ landings the following weighing standards 
apply:
    (A) A belt or automatic hopper scale may be used to weigh all of the 
catch prior to sorting. All but a single predominant species must then 
be reweighed.
    (B) An in-line conveyor or automatic hopper scale may be used to 
weigh the predominant species after catch has been sorted. Other species 
must be weighed in a manner that facilitates tracking of the weights of 
those species.
    (C) IFQ species or species group may be weighed in totes on a 
platform scale capable of printing a label or tag and recording the 
label or tag information to memory for printing a report as specified at 
Sec. 660.15. The label or tag must remain affixed to the tote until the 
tote is emptied. The label or tag must show the following information:
    (1) The species or species group;
    (2) The weight of the fish in the tote;
    (3) The date the label or tag was printed; and
    (4) The vessel name.
    (D) Totes and ice. If a catch monitoring plan proposes the use of 
totes in which fish will be weighed, or a deduction for the weight of 
ice, the deduction must be accurately accounted for. No deduction may be 
made for the weight of water or slime. This standard may be met by:
    (1) Taring the empty or pre-iced tote on the scale prior to filling 
with fish;
    (2) Labeling each tote with an individual tare weight. This weight 
must be accurate within 500 grams (1 pound if scale is denominated in 
pounds) for any given tote and the average error for all totes may not 
exceed 200 grams (8 ounces for scales denominated in pounds);
    (3) An alternate approach accepted by NMFS. NMFS will only accept 
approaches that do not involve the estimation of the weight of ice or 
the weight of totes and allow NMFS staff or an authorized officer to 
verify that the deduction or tare weight is accurate.
    (E) An alternate approach accepted by NMFS in the catch monitoring 
plan.

[[Page 219]]

    (3) IFQ first receiver responsibilities relative to catch weighing 
and monitoring of catch weighing. The IFQ first receiver must:
    (i) General. (A) Ensure that all IFQ landings are sorted and weighed 
as specified at Sec. 660.130(d) and in accordance with an approved 
catch monitoring plan.
    (B) [Reserved]

catch monitor on site the entire time an IFQ landing is being offloaded, 
sorted, or weighed.
    (B) Notify the catch monitor of the offloading schedule.
    (C) Provide catch monitors, NMFS staff, or an authorized officer 
with unobstructed access to any areas where IFQ species are or may be 
sorted or weighed at any time IFQ species are being landed or processed.
    (D) Ensure that catch monitors, NMFS staff, or an authorized officer 
are able to simultaneously observe the weighing of catch on the scale 
and read the scale display at any time.
    (E) Ensure that printouts of the scale weight of each delivery or 
offload are made available to catch monitors, NMFS staff, or an 
authorized officer at the time printouts are generated.
    (4) Scale tests. (i) All testing must meet the scale test standards 
specified at Sec. 660.15(c).
    (ii) Inseason scale testing. First receivers must allow, and provide 
reasonable assistance to a catch monitor, NMFS staff or an authorized 
officer to test scales used to weigh IFQ catch. A scale that does not 
pass an inseason test may not be used to weigh IFQ catch until the scale 
passes an inseason test or is approved for continued use by the weights 
and measures authorities of the state in which the scale is located.
    (k) Gear switching. (1) Participants in the Shorebased IFQ Program 
may take IFQ species using any legal groundfish non-trawl gear (i.e., 
gear switching) and are exempt from the gear endorsements at Sec. 
660.25(b)(3) for limited entry fixed gear permits, provided the 
following requirements are met:
    (i) The vessel must be registered to a limited entry trawl permit.
    (ii) The vessel must be registered to a vessel account that is not 
in deficit on any IFQ species.
    (iii) The vessel operator must have submitted a valid gear

does not declare any other designation (a Shorebased IFQ Program trip 
may not be combined with any other designation).
    (iv) The vessel must comply with prohibitions applicable to limited 
entry fixed gear fishery as specified at Sec. 660.212, gear 
restrictions applicable to limited entry fixed gear as specified in 
Sec. Sec. 660.219 and 660.230(b), and management measures specified in 
Sec. 660.230(d), including restrictions on the fixed gear allowed 
onboard, its usage, and applicable fixed gear groundfish conservation 
area restrictions, except that the vessel will not be subject to limited 
entry fixed gear trip limits when fishing in the Shorebased IFQ Program.
    (v) The vessel must comply with the limited entry trawl trip limits 
for species/species groups not covered under the Shorebased IFQ Program 
or whiting trip limits outside the primary season.
    (vi) The vessel must comply with recordkeeping and reporting 
requirements applicable to limited entry trawl gear as specified in 
Sec. 660.113.
    (vii) The vessel must comply with and observer requirements and all

Sec. 660.150  Mothership (MS) Coop Program.

    (a) General. The MS Coop Program requirements in this section will 
be effective beginning January 1, 2011. The MS Coop Program is a general 
term to describe the limited access program that applies to eligible 
harvesters and processors in the mothership sector of the Pacific 
whiting at-sea trawl fishery. Eligible harvesters and processors, 
including coop and non-coop fishery participants, must meet the 
requirements set forth in this section of the Pacific Coast groundfish 
regulations. Each year a vessel registered to an MS/CV-endorsed permit 
may fish in either the coop or non-coop portion of the MS Coop Program, 
but not both. In addition to the requirements of this section, the MS 
Coop Program is subject to the following groundfish regulations of 
subparts C and D of this part:
    (1) Pacific whiting seasons Sec. 660.131(b), subpart D.
    (2) Area restrictions specified for midwater trawl gear used to 
harvest Pacific whiting fishery specified at Sec. 660.131(c), Subpart D 
for GCAs, RCAs, Salmon Conservation Zones, BRAs, and EFHCAs.

specified at Sec. 660.13(d), subpart C; and, maintain and submit all 
records and reports specified at Sec. 660.113(c) including, economic 
data, scale tests records, and cease fishing reports.
    (B) Observers. As specified at paragraph (j) of this section, 
procure observer services, maintain the appropriate level of coverage, 
and meet the vessel responsibilities.
    (C) Catch weighing requirements. The owner and operator of a MS 
vessel must:
    (1) Ensure that all catch is weighed in its round form on a NMFS-
approved scale that meets the requirements described in section Sec. 
660.15(b), subpart C;
    (2) Provide a NMFS-approved platform scale, belt scale, and test 
weights that meet the requirements described in section Sec. 660.15(b), 
subpart C.

    (2) Mothership catcher vessels--(i) Mothership catcher vessel 
participation requirements--(A) A vessel is eligible to harvest in the 
MS Coop Program if the following conditions are met:
    (1) If the vessel is used to fish as a mothership catcher vessel for 
a permitted MS coop, the vessel is registered to a limited entry permit 
with a trawl endorsement and NMFS has been notified that the vessel is 
authorized to fish for the coop.
    (2) If the vessel is used to harvest fish in the non-coop fishery, 
the vessel is registered to an MS/CV-endorsed limited entry permit.
    (3) The vessel is not used to harvest fish or process as a 
mothership or catcher/processor vessel in the same calendar year.
    (4) The vessel does not catch more than 30 percent of the Pacific 
whiting allocation for the mothership sector.
    (B) [Reserved]
    (ii) Mothership catcher vessel responsibilities--(A) Observers. As 
specified at paragraph (j) of this section, procure observer services, 
maintain the appropriate level of coverage, and meet the vessel 
responsibilities.
    (B) Recordkeeping and reporting. Maintain a valid declaration as 
specified at Sec. 660.13(d), subpart C; and, maintain and submit all 
records and reports specified at Sec. 660.113(c) including, economic 
data and scale tests records, if applicable.
    (3) MS coops--(i) MS coop participation requirements. For a MS coop 
to participate in the Pacific whiting mothership sector fishery it must:
    (A) Be issued a MS coop permit;
    (B) Be composed of MS/CV-endorsed limited entry permit owners;
    (C) Be formed voluntarily;
    (D) Be a legally recognized entity that represents its members;
    (E) Designate an individual as a coop manager; and
    (F) Include at least 20 percent of all MS/CV-endorsed permits as 
members. The coop membership percentage will be interpreted by rounding 
to the nearest whole permit (i.e. less than 0.5 rounds down and 0.5 and 
greater rounds up).
    (ii) MS coop responsibilities. A MS coop is responsible for:
    (A) Applying for and being registered to a MS coop permit;
    (B) Organizing and coordinating harvest activities of vessels 
authorized to fish for the coop;
    (C) Reassigning catch history assignments for use by coop members;
    (D) Organizing and coordinating the transfer and leasing of catch 
allocations with other permitted coops through inter-coop agreements;
    (E) Monitoring harvest activities and enforcing the catch limits of 
coop members;
    (F) Submitting an annual report.
    (G) Having a designated coop manager. The designated coop manager 
must:
    (1) Serve as the contact person between NMFS, the Council, and other 
coops;
    (2) Be responsible for the annual distribution of catch and bycatch 
allocations among coop members;
    (3) Oversee reassignment of catch allocations within the coop;
    (4) Oversee inter-coop catch allocation reassignments;
    (5) Prepare and submit an annual report on behalf of the coop;
    (6) Be authorized to receive or respond to any legal process in 
which the coop is involved; and
    (7) Notify NMFS if the coop dissolves.
    (iii) MS coop compliance and joint/several liability. An MS coop 
must comply with the provisions of this section. The MS coop, member 
limited entry permit owners, and owners and operators of vessels 
registered to member limited entry permits, are jointly and severally 
responsible for compliance with the provisions of this section. Pursuant 
to 15 CFR part 904, each MS coop, member permit owner, and owner and 
operator of a vessel registered to a coop member permit may be charged 
jointly and severally for violations of the provisions of this section. 
For purposes of enforcement, an MS coop is a legal entity that can be 
subject to NOAA enforcement action for violations of the provisions of 
this section.
    (c) MS Coop Program species and allocations--(1) MS Coop Program 
species. MS Coop Program species are as follows:
    (i) Species with formal allocations to the MS Coop Program are 
Pacific whiting, canary rockfish, darkblotched

[[Page 222]]

rockfish, Pacific Ocean perch, and widow rockfish;
    (ii) Species with set-asides for the MS and C/P Coop Programs 
combined, as described in Tables 1d and 2d, subpart C.
    (2) Annual mothership sector sub-allocations. Annual allocation 
amount(s) will be determined using the following procedure:
    (i) MS/CV catch history assignments. Catch history assignments will 
be based on catch history using the following methodology:
    (A) Pacific whiting catch history assignment. For each MS/CV-
endorsed limited entry permit, the permit's entire catch history 
assignment of Pacific whiting will be annually allocated to a single 
permitted MS coop or to the non-coop fishery. An MS/CV-endorsed permit 
owner cannot divide the permit's catch history assignment between more 
than one MS coop or between a coop and the non-coop fishery for that 
year. Once assigned to a permitted MS coop or to the non-coop fishery, 
the permit's catch history assignment remains with that permitted MS 
coop or non-coop fishery for that calendar year. When the mothership 
sector allocation is established through the final Pacific whiting 
specifications, the information for the conversion of catch history 
assignment to pounds will be made available to the public through a 
Federal Register announcement and/or public notice and/or the NMFS Web 
site. The amount of whiting from the catch history assignment will be 
issued to the nearest whole pound using standard rounding rules (i.e. 
less than 0.5 rounds down and 0.5 and greater rounds up).
    (B) Non-whiting groundfish species catch--(1) Non-whiting groundfish 
species with a mothership sector allocation will be divided annually 
between the permitted coops and the non-coop fishery. The pounds 
associated with each permitted MS coop will be provided when the coop 
permit is issued.
    (2) Groundfish species with at-sea sector set-asides will be managed 
on an annual basis unless there is a risk of a harvest specification 
being exceeded, unforeseen impact on another fisheries, or conservation 
concerns in which case inseason action may be taken. Set asides may be 
adjusted through the biennial specifications and management measures 
process as necessary.
    (3) Groundfish species not addressed in paragraph (1) or (2) above, 
will be managed on an annual basis unless there is a risk of a harvest 
specification being exceeded, unforeseen impact on another fisheries, or 
conservation concerns in which case inseason action may be taken.
    (4) Halibut set-asides. Annually a specified amount of the Pacific 
halibut will be held in reserve as a shared set-aside for bycatch in the 
at-sea Pacific whiting fisheries and the shorebased trawl sector south 
of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat.
    (ii) Annual coop allocations--(A) Pacific whiting. Each permitted MS 
coop is authorized to harvest a quantity of Pacific whiting that is 
based on the sum of the catch history assignments for each member MS/CV-
endorsed permit identified in the NMFS-accepted coop agreement for a 
given calendar year. Other limited entry permits registered to vessels 
that will fish for the coop do not bring catch allocation to a permitted 
MS coop.
    (B) Non-whiting groundfish with allocations. Sub-allocations of non-
whiting groundfish species with allocations to permitted MS coops will 
be in proportion to the Pacific whiting catch history assignments 
assigned to each permitted MS coop.
    (iii) Annual non-coop allocation--(A) Pacific whiting. The non-coop 
whiting fishery is authorized to harvest a quantity of Pacific whiting 
that is remaining in the mothership sector annual allocation after the 
deduction of all coop allocations.
    (B) Non-whiting groundfish with allocations. The sub-allocation to 
the non-coop fishery will be in proportion to the mothership catcher 
vessel Pacific whiting catch history assignments for the non-coop 
fishery.
    (C) Announcement of the non-coop fishery allocations. Information on 
the amount of Pacific whiting and non-whiting groundfish with 
allocations that will be made available to the non-coop fishery when the 
final Pacific whiting specifications for the mothership sector is 
established and will be announced to the public

[[Page 223]]

through a Federal Register announcement and/or public notice and/or the 
NMFS Web site.
    (3) Reaching an allocation or sub-allocation. When the mothership 
sector Pacific whiting allocation, Pacific whiting sub-allocation, or 
non-whiting groundfish catch allocation is reached or is projected to be 
reached, the following action may be taken:
    (i) Further harvesting, receiving or at-sea processing by a 
mothership or catcher vessel in the mothership sector is prohibited when 
the mothership sector Pacific whiting allocation or non-whiting 
groundfish allocation is projected to be reached. No additional 
unprocessed groundfish may be brought on board after at-sea processing 
is prohibited, but a mothership may continue to process catch that was 
on board before at-sea processing was prohibited. Pacific whiting may 
not be taken and retained, possessed, or landed by a catcher vessel 
participating in the mothership sector.
    (ii) When a permitted MS coop sub-allocation of Pacific whiting or 
non-whiting groundfish species is reached, further harvesting or 
receiving of groundfish by vessels fishing in the permitted MS coop must 
cease, unless the permitted MS coop is operating under an NMFS-accepted 
inter-coop agreement.
    (iii) When the non-coop fishery sub-allocation of Pacific whiting or 
non-whiting groundfish species is projected to be reached, further 
harvesting or receiving of groundfish by vessels fishing in under the 
non-coop fishery must cease.
    (4) Non-whiting groundfish species reapportionment. This paragraph 
(c)(4) describes the process for reapportioning non-whiting groundfish 
species with allocations between permitted MS coops and the catcher/
processor sector. Reapportionment of mothership sector allocations to 
the catcher/processor will not occur until all permitted MS coops and 
the non-coop fishery have been closed by NMFS or have informed NMFS that 
they have ceased operations for the remainder of the calendar year.
    (i) Within the mothership sector. The Regional Administrator may 
make available for harvest to permitted coops and the non-coop fishery 
that have not notified NMFS that they have ceased fishing for the year, 
the amounts of a permitted MS coop's non-whiting catch allocation 
remaining when a coop reaches its Pacific whiting allocation or when the 
designated coop manager notifies NMFS that a permitted coop has ceased 
fishing for the year. The reapportioned allocations will be in 
proportion to their original allocations.
    (ii) Between the mothership and catcher/processor sectors. The 
Regional Administrator may make available for harvest to the catcher/
processor sector of the Pacific whiting fishery, the amounts of the 
mothership sector's non-whiting catch allocation remaining when the 
Pacific whiting allocation is reached or participants in the sector do 
not intend to harvest the remaining allocation. The designated coop 
manager, or in the case of an inter-coop, all of the designated coop 
managers must submit a cease fishing report to NMFS indicating that 
harvesting has concluded for the year. At any time after greater than 80 
percent of the Mothership sector Pacific whiting allocation has been 
harvested, the Regional Administrator may contact designated coop 
managers to determine whether they intend to continue fishing. When 
considering redistribution of non-whiting catch allocation, the Regional 
Administrator will take in to consideration the best available data on 
total projected fishing impacts. Reapportionment between permitted MS 
coops and the non-coop fishery within the mothership sector will be in 
proportion to their original coop allocations for the calendar year.
    (iii) Set-aside species. No inseason management actions are 
associated with set asides.
    (5) Announcements. The Regional Administrator will announce in the 
Federal Register when the mothership sector or the allocation of Pacific 
whiting or non-whiting groundfish with an allocation is reached, or is 
projected to be reached, and specify the appropriate action. In order to 
prevent exceeding an allocation and to avoid underutilizing the 
resource, prohibitions against further taking and retaining,

[[Page 224]]

receiving, or at-sea processing of Pacific whiting, or reapportionment 
of non-whiting groundfish with allocations may be made effective 
immediately by actual notice to fishers and processors, by e-mail, 
internet (www.nwr.noaa.gov/Groundfish-Halibut/Groundfish-Fishery-
Management/Whiting-Management/index.cfm), phone, fax, letter, press 
release, and/or USCG Notice to Mariners (monitor channel 16 VHF), 
followed by publication in the Federal Register, in which instance 
public comment will be sought for a reasonable period of time 
thereafter.
    (6) Redistribution of annual allocation--(i) Between permitted MS 
coops (inter-coop). (A) Through an inter-coop agreement, the designated 
coop managers of permitted MS coops may distribute Pacific whiting and 
non-whiting groundfish allocations among one or more permitted MS coops, 
provided the processor obligations at paragraph (c)(7) of this section 
have been met or a mutual agreement exception at paragraph (c)(7)(iv) of 
this section has been submitted to NMFS.
    (B) In the case of a MS coop failure during the Pacific whiting 
primary season for the mothership sector, unused allocation associated 
with the catch history will not be available for harvest by the coop 
that failed, by any former members of the coop that failed, or any other 
MS coop for the remainder of that calendar year.
    (ii) Between the MS coop and non-coop fisheries. Pacific whiting may 
not be redistributed between the coop and non-coop fisheries.
    (ii) Between Pacific whiting sectors. Pacific whiting may not be 
redistributed between the mothership sector and catcher/processor 
sector. Whiting may not be redistributed to the Shorebased IFQ Program.
    (7) Processor obligation and mutual agreement exceptions--(i) 
Processor obligation. Through the annual MS/CV-endorsed limited entry 
permit renewal process, the MS/CV-endorsed permit owner must identify to 
NMFS to which MS permit the MS/CV permit owner intends to obligate the 
catch history assignment associated with that permit if they are 
participating in the MS coop fishery. Only one MS permit may be 
designated (the obligation may not be split among MS permits).
    (ii) Expiration of a processor obligation. Processor obligations 
expire at the end of each calendar year when the MS Coop Permit expires.
    (iii) Processor obligation when MS coop allocation is redistributed. 
When a permitted MS coop redistributes Pacific whiting allocation within 
the permitted MS coop or from one permitted MS coop to another permitted 
MS coop through an inter-coop agreement, such allocations must be 
delivered to the mothership registered to the MS permit to which the 
allocation was obligated under the processor obligation submitted to 
NMFS, unless a mutual agreement exception has been submitted to NMFS.
    (iv) Mutual agreement exception. An MS/CV-endorsed permit's catch 
history assignment can be released from a processor obligation through a 
mutual agreement exception. The MS/CV-endorsed permit owner must submit 
a copy to NMFS of the written agreement that includes the initial MS 
permit owner's acknowledgment of the release of the MS/CV-endorsed 
permit owner's processor obligation and the MS/CV-endorsed permit owner 
must identify a processor obligation for a new MS permit.
    (v) MS permit withdrawal. If an MS permit withdraws from the 
mothership fishery before the resulting amounts of catch history 
assignment have been announced by NMFS, any MS/CV-endorsed permit 
obligated to the MS permit may elect to participate in the coop or non-
coop fishery. In such an event, the MS permit owner must provide written 
notification of its withdrawal to NMFS and al
