                               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, 2017), 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.

PAST PROVISIONS OF THE CODE

    Provisions of the Code that are no longer in force and effect as of 
the revision date stated on the cover of each volume are not carried. 
Code users may find the text of provisions in effect on any given date 
in the past by using the appropriate List of CFR Sections Affected 
(LSA). For the convenience of the reader, a ``List of CFR Sections 
Affected'' is published at the end of each CFR volume. For changes to 
the Code prior to the LSA listings at the end of the volume, consult 
previous annual editions of the LSA. For changes to the Code prior to 
2001, consult the List of CFR Sections Affected compilations, published 
for 1949-1963, 1964-1972, 1973-1985, and 1986-2000.

``[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.

[[Page vii]]

    An index to the text of ``Title 3--The President'' is carried within 
that volume.
    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)
    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

[[Page 9]]

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 means a sablefish-endorsed 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

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).
    Catch Monitor Program or Catch Monitor Program Office means the 
Catch Monitor Program Office of the West Coast Region, National Marine 
Fisheries Service.
    Catch monitor provider means any person that is granted a permit by 
NMFS to provide certified catch monitors as required in Sec. 660.140.
    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),

[[Page 10]]

an Essential Fish Habitat Conservation Area (EFHCA), or both.
    (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. 
Regulations at Sec. 660.60(c)(3) describe the various purposes for 
which these GCAs may be implemented. Regulations at Sec. 660.70 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 
Bycatch Reduction Areas or BRAs and 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 conservation needs. Regulations at 
Sec. Sec. 660.70 through 660.74 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).

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.

    Fishery harvest guideline means the harvest guideline or quota after 
subtracting from the TAC, ACL, or ACT when specified, any allocation or 
projected catch for the Pacific Coast treaty Indian Tribes, projected 
research catch, deductions for fishing mortality in non-groundfish 
fisheries, and deductions 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.

``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

whether groundfish is retained.

[[Page 16]]

    Non-groundfish trawl (previously ``exempted'' trawl) means any trawl 
gear other than the Pacific Coast groundfish trawl gear that is

    Operator. (See Sec. 600.10)
    Optimum yield or OY means the amount of fish that will provide the 
greatest overall benefit to the Nation, particularly with respect to 
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:

    Person, as it applies to limited entry and open access fisheries 
conducted under, subparts C through F of this part means any individual, 
corporation, partnership, association or other entity (whether or not 
organized or existing under the laws of any state), and any Federal, 
state, or local government, or any entity of any such government that is

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))).
    (1) At-sea processing means processing that takes place on a vessel 
or other platform that floats and is capable of being moved from one 
location to another, whether shore-based or on the water.
    (2) Shorebased processing or processing means processing that takes 
place at a facility that is permanently fixed to land. (Also see the 
definition for shoreside processing at Sec. 660.140, subpart D which 
defines shoreside processing for the purposes of qualifying for a 
Shorebased IFQ Program QS permit.) For the purposes of economic data 
collection in the Shorebased IFQ Program, shorebased processing means 
either of the following:
    (i) 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.
    (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.

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--When the operator of a 
vessel registers a VMS unit with NMFS OLE, the vessel operator must 
provide NMFS with a declaration report as specified at paragraph 
(d)(5)(iv) of this section. The operator of any vessel that has already 
registered a VMS unit with NMFS OLE but has not yet made a declaration, 
as specified at paragraph (d)(5)(iv) of this section, must provide NMFS 
with a declaration report upon request from NMFS OLE.
    (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), 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

[[Page 24]]

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) A declaration report will be valid until another declaration 
report revising the existing gear or fishery declaration is received by 
NMFS OLE. The vessel operator must send a new declaration report before 
leaving port on a trip that meets one of the following criteria:
    (A) A gear type that is different from the gear type most recently 
declared for the vessel will be used, or
    (B) A vessel will fish in a fishery other than the fishery most 
recently declared.
    (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 or fish in a fishery other 
than the fishery most recently declared.
    (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.
    (A) One of the following gear types or sectors must be declared:
    (1) Limited entry fixed gear, not including shorebased IFQ,
    (2) Limited entry groundfish non-trawl, shorebased IFQ,
    (3) Limited entry midwater trawl, non-whiting shorebased IFQ,
    (4) Limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting shorebased IFQ,

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

[[Page 26]]

must fax NMFS OLE an activation report that includes: Vessel name; 
vessel 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 exemption. If the limited entry permit had a change in 
vessel registration so that it is no longer registered to the 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

[[Page 27]]

without being registered to a limited entry permit, the vessel is 
required to have and use VMS.
    (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 exemption; or at least 2 hours before a 
vessel resumes fishing in the open access fishery after a long-term 
departure exemption. If a

[[Page 28]]

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 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, hardware and software for 
electronic fish tickets, 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 the records available upon request to NMFS staff 
or an authorized officer.
    (b) Scales used to weigh fish at sea. Vessel owners, operators, and 
managers are jointly and severally responsible for their vessel's 
compliance with the requirements specified in this section.
    (1) Performance and technical requirements for scales in the MS and 
C/P Coop Programs. A scale used to weigh fish in the MS and C/P Coop 
Programs must meet the type evaluation, initial inspection, and annual 
reinspection requirements set forth in 50 CFR 679.28(b)(1) and (2), and 
must be approved by NMFS to weigh fish at sea.
    (2) Annual inspection. Once a scale is installed on a vessel and 
approved by NMFS for use to weigh fish at sea, it must be reinspected 
annually within 12 months of the date of the most recent inspection to 
determine if the scale meets all of the applicable performance and 
technical requirements as described in 50 CFR 679.28(b).
    (3) Daily testing. Each scale used to weigh fish must be tested at 
least once each calendar day to ensure that each scale meets the maximum 
permissible error requirements described at paragraph (b)(4) of this 
section.
    (4) Daily at-sea scale tests. To verify that the scale meets the 
maximum permissible errors specified in this paragraph, each scale used 
to weigh fish must be tested at least one time during each calendar day 
when use of the scale is required. The tests must be performed in an 
accurate and timely manner.

[[Page 29]]

    (i) Flow or Belt scales--(A) Maximum permissible errors. The maximum 
permissible errors for the daily at-sea scale test is plus or minus 3 
percent of the known weight of the test material.
    (B) Test Procedure. A test must be conducted by weighing no less 
than 400 kg (882 lb) of test material, supplied by the scale 
manufacturer or approved by a NMFS-authorized scale inspector, on the 
scale under test. The test material may be run across the scale multiple 
times in order to total 400 kg; however, no single run of test material 
across the scale may weigh less than 40 kg (88.2 lb). The known weight 
of test material must be determined at the time of each scale test by 
weighing it on a platform scale approved for use under 50 CFR 
679.28(b)(7).
    (ii) Platform scales required for observer sampling or to determine 
known weight of test material on mothership and catcher/processor 
vessels--(A) Maximum permissible errors. The maximum permissible errors 
for the daily at-sea scale test for platform scales is plus or minus 0.5 
percent of the weight tested.
    (B) Test Procedure. A platform 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. Any combination of 
test weights that will allow the scale to be tested at 10 kg, 25 kg, and 
50 kg may be used. A platform scale used to weigh fish must be tested at 
a weight equal to the largest amount of fish that will be weighed on the 
scale in one weighing.
    (C) 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.
    (iii) Requirements for all at-sea scale tests. The following 
conditions must be met:
    (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 by placing the test material or test 
weights on or across the scale and recording 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 in local time;
    (4) Known weight of test materials or test weights;
    (5) Weight of test material or test weights recorded by scale;
    (6) Percent error as determined by subtracting the known weight of 
the test material or test weights from the weight recorded on the scale, 
dividing that amount by the known weight of the test material or test 
weights, and multiplying by 100; and
    (7) Signature of operator.
    (C) Maintain the scale test report form from all at-sea scale tests, 
including test report forms from failed scale tests 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 scale test report forms must be 
retained 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 
operator immediately following completion of each scale test.
    (5) Scale maintenance. The scale must be maintained in proper 
operating condition throughout its use; adjustments made to the scale 
must be made to bring the performance errors as close as practicable to 
a zero value; and no adjustment may be made that will cause the scale to 
weigh fish inaccurately.
    (6) Printed reports from the scale (not applicable to observer 
sampling scales). 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 made available to observers, NMFS staff or authorized 
officers. In addition, printed reports must be retained for 3 years 
after the end of the year during which the printouts were made.
    (i) Printed reports of catch weight and cumulative weight. Reports 
must be printed at least once every calendar

[[Page 30]]

day when use of the scale is required. 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 the observer, NMFS 
personnel or an authorized officer.
    (iii) Printed report from calibration log. The operator must print 
the calibration log on request by NMFS staff or an authorized officer, 
or person authorized by NMFS. The calibration log must be printed and 
retained before any information stored in the scale computer memory is 
replaced. The calibration log must detail either the prior 1,000 
calibrations or all calibrations since the scale electronics were first 
put into service, whichever is less. The printout from the calibration 
log must show:
    (A) The vessel name and Federal fisheries or processor permit 
number;
    (B) The month, day, and year of the calibration;
    (C) The time of the calibration to the nearest minute in local time;
    (D) The weight used to calibrate the scale; and
    (E) The magnitude of the calibration in comparison to the prior 
calibration.
    (iv) Printed reports from the fault log. The operator must print the 
fault log on request by NMFS staff, an authorized officer or person 
authorized by NMFS. The fault log must be printed and retained before 
any information stored in the scale computer memory is replaced. The 
fault log must detail either the prior 1,000 faults and startups, or all 
faults and startups since the scale electronics were first put into 
service, whichever is less. A fault, for the purposes of the fault log, 
is any condition other than underflow detected by the scale electronics 
that could affect the metrological accuracy of the scale. The printout 
from the fault log must show:
    (A) The vessel name and Federal fisheries or processor permit 
number;
    (B) The month, day, year, and time of each startup to the nearest 
minute in local time;
    (C) The month, day, year, and time that each fault began to the 
nearest minute in local time; and
    (D) The month, day, year, and time that each fault was resolved to 
the nearest minute in local time.
    (v) Platform scales used for observer sampling. A platform scale 
used for observer sampling is not required to produce a printed record.
    (7) Video monitoring for scales used by the vessel crew to weigh 
catch. Mothership or Catcher/Processor vessels required to weigh fish 
under the regulations in this section must provide and maintain a NMFS-
approved video monitoring system as specified in paragraph (e) of this 
section.
    (c) Scales used to weigh fish 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 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 fish 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. The IFQ first receiver must ensure that the scale 
and scale display are visible simultaneously to the catch monitor. Catch 
monitors, NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized personnel, or authorized officers 
must be

[[Page 31]]

allowed to observe the weighing of fish 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 the catch 
monitor, 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 
the catch monitor, 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)) must produce a printed record for each landing, or 
portion of a landing, weighed on that scale. NMFS may exempt, through 
approval of the NMFS-accepted catch monitoring plan, scales not designed 
for automatic bulk weighing from part or all of the printed record 
requirements. IFQ first receivers that receive no more than 200,000 
pounds of groundfish in any calendar month may be exempt under Sec. 
660.140(j)(2). 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) For belt scales and weight belts, the total cumulative weight of 
all fish or other material weighed on the scale since the last 
inspection;
    (E) The date the information is printed; and
    (F) The name and vessel registration or documentation number of the 
vessel making the landing. The person operating the scale 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 fish. A scale 
that does not pass an inseason test may not be used to weigh IFQ fish 
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 this paragraph:
    (1) Flow scales (also known as belt scales and weight belts). The 
maximum permissible error is plus or minus 0.25 percent of the known 
weight of the test material with repeatability between tests of no more 
than 0.25 percent. Percent error is determined by subtracting the known 
weight of the test material or test weights from the weight recorded on 
the scale, dividing that amount by the known weight of the test material 
or test weights, and multiplying by 100.
    (2) All other scales.

(iv) 4,000...................................               5
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (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:

designate a catch monitor decertification review official(s), who will 
have the authority to review certifications and issue IADs of 
decertification.
    (ii) Causes for decertification. The catch monitor decertification 
official may initiate decertification proceedings when it is alleged 
that any of the following acts or omissions have been committed:
    (A) Failed to satisfactorily perform the specified duties and 
responsibilities;
    (B) Failed to abide by the specified standards of conduct;
    (C) Upon conviction of a crime or upon entry of a civil judgment

or honesty that seriously and directly affects the fitness of catch 
monitors.
    (iii) Issuance of IAD. Upon determination that decertification is 
warranted, the catch monitor decertification official will issue a 
written IAD. The IAD 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.
    (iv) Appeals. A certified catch monitor who receives an IAD that 
suspends or revokes his or her catch monitor certification may appeal 
the determination within 30 calendar days after the date on the IAD to 
the Office of Administrative Appeals pursuant to Sec. 660.19.

value from any person who conducts fishing or fish processing activities 
that are regulated by NMFS, or who has interests that may be 
substantially affected by the performance or nonperformance of the 
official duties of the provider.
    (4) Existing providers. Businesses that provided observers and/or 
catch monitors in the 12 months prior to May 21, 2015 will be issued a 
provider permit without submission of an application. This permit will 
be effective through December 31, 2015.
    (i) Providers who deployed catch monitors in the Shorebased IFQ 
Program in the 12 months prior to May 21, 2015 will be issued a provider 
permit with a catch monitor provider endorsement effective through 
December 31, 2015, except that a change in ownership of an existing 
catch monitor provider after January 1, 2015, requires a new permit 
application under this section.
    (ii) Providers who deployed certified observers in the Pacific Coast 
groundfish fishery in the 12 months prior to May 21, 2015 will be issued 
a provider permit with an observer provider endorsement effective

existing observer provider after January 1, 2015, requires a new permit 
application under this section.
    (iii) To receive a provider permit for 2016 and beyond, the existing 
providers must follow the provider permit renewal process set forth in 
this section.
    (d) Agency determination on an application.
    (1) Initial administrative determination. For all complete 
applications, NMFS will issue an IAD that either approves or disapproves 
the application. If approved, the IAD will be the provider permit and 
any associated endorsements. If disapproved, the IAD will provide the 
reasons for this determination. 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.
    (2) Appeal. The applicant may appeal the IAD consistent with the 
observer, catch monitor, and provider appeals process defined at Sec. 
660.19.
    (e) Effective dates. The provider permit will be valid from the 
effective date identified on the permit until the permit expiration date 
of December 31. Provider permit holders must reapply annually by 
following the application process specified in paragraph (b) of this 
section.
    (f) Expiration of the provider permit--(1) Expiration due to 
inactivity. After a period of 12 continuous months during which no 
observers or catch monitors are deployed by the provider in the Pacific 
coast groundfish fishery, NMFS will issue an IAD describing the intent 
to expire the provider permit or to remove the appropriate 
endorsement(s) and the timeline to do so. A provider that receives an 
IAD may appeal under Sec. 660.19. The provider permit and endorsements 
will remain valid until a final agency decision is made or until 
December 31, whichever is earlier.
    (2) Expiration due to failure to renew. Failure to renew annually 
will result in expiration of the provider permit and endorsements on 
December 31.
    (3) Obtaining a new permit or endorsement following an expiration or 
voided permit. A person holding an expired or void permit or endorsement 
may reapply for a new provider permit or endorsement at any time 
consistent with Sec. 660.18(b).

[[Page 42]]

    (g) Provider permit renewal process. To maintain a valid provider 
permit, provider permit holders must reapply annually prior to the 
permit expiration date.
    (1) NMFS will mail a provider permit application form to existing 
permit holders on or about September 15 each year.
    (2) Providers who want to have their permits effective for January 1 
of the following calendar year must submit their complete application 
form to NMFS by October 31. If a provider fails to renew the provider 
permit, the provider permit and endorsements will expire on December 31.
    (h) Change of provider permit ownership and transfer restrictions. 
Neither a provider permit nor the endorsements are transferable. 
Ownership of a provider permit cannot be registered to another 
individual or entity. The provider permit owner cannot change, 
substitute, or add individuals or entities as owners of the permit 
(i.e., cannot change the legal name of the permit owner(s) as given on 
the permit). Any change in ownership of the provider permit requires the 
new owner(s) to apply for a provider permit, and is subject to approval 
by NMFS.
    (i) Provider permit sanctions. Procedures governing sanctions of 
permits are found at subpart D of 15 CFR part 904.
    (j) Permit fees. The Regional Administrator may charge fees to cover 
administrative expenses related to issuance of permits including initial 
issuance, renewal replacement, and appeals.

Sec. 660.19  Appeals process for catch monitors, observers, 
and provider permits.

    (a) Allowed appeals. This section describes the procedure for 
appealing IADs described at Sec. Sec. 660.17(g), 660.18(d) and (f), 
660.140(h), 660.150(j), and 660.160(g) for catch monitor 
decertification, observer decertification and provider permit 
expirations due to inactivity. Any person whose interest is directly and 
adversely affected by an IAD may file a written appeal. For purposes of 
this section, such person will be referred to as the ``applicant.''
    (b) Appeals process. In cases where the applicant disagrees with the 
IAD, the applicant may appeal that decision. Final decisions on appeals 
of IADs will be made in writing by the Regional Administrator or 
designee acting on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce and will state 
the reasons therefore.
    (1) Submission of appeals. (i) The appeal must be in writing and 
comply with this paragraph.
    (ii) Appeals must be mailed or faxed to: National Marine Fisheries 
Service, West Coast 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.
    (2) Timing of appeals. The appeal must be filed within 30 calendar 
days after the IAD is issued. The IAD becomes the final decision of the 
Regional Administrator or designee acting on behalf of the Secretary of 
Commerce if no appeal is filed within 30 calendar days. 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.
    (3) Address of record. The address used by the applicant in initial 
correspondence to NMFS concerning the application will be the address 
used by NMFS for the appeal. Notifications and correspondence associated 
with all actions affecting the applicant will be mailed to the address 
of record unless the applicant provides NMFS, in writing, an address 
change. NMFS bears no responsibility if NMFS sends a notification or 
correspondence to the address of record and it is not received because 
the applicant's actual address has changed without notification to NMFS.
    (4) Statement of reasons for appeals. Applicants must submit a full 
written statement in support of the appeal, including a concise 
statement of the reasons the IAD determination has a direct and adverse 
effect on the applicant and should be reversed or modified. The 
appellate officer will limit his/her review to the issues stated in the 
appeal; all issues not set out in the appeal will be waived.

[[Page 43]]

    (5) Decisions on appeals. The Regional Administrator or designee 
will issue a final written decision on the appeal which is the final 
decision of the Secretary of Commerce.

    (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. 660.21  Seabird Avoidance Program.

    This section contains the requirements of the Seabird Avoidance 
Program.
    (a) Purpose. The purpose of the Seabird Avoidance Program is to 
minimize interactions between fishing gear and seabird species, 
including short-tailed albatross (Phoebastria albatrus).
    (b) Applicability. The requirements specified in paragraph (c) of 
this section apply to the following fishing vessels:
    (1) Vessels greater than or equal to 55 ft (16.8 m) LOA engaged in

reasonable effort to ensure short-tailed albatross brought on board 
alive are released alive and that, whenever possible, hooks are removed 
without jeopardizing the life of the bird(s). If the vessel operator 
determines, based on personal judgment, that an injured bird is likely 
to die upon release, the vessel operator is encouraged to seek 
veterinary care in port. Final disposition of an injured bird will be 
with a Wildlife Rehabilitator. If needed, phone the U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service at 503-231-6179 to assist in locating a qualified

[80 FR 71980, Nov. 18, 2015]



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.

[[Page 45]]

    (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, 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 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 change in vessel registration 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 issues the permit.
    (iv) Limited entry permits indivisible. Limited entry permits may 
not be divided for use by more than one vessel.
    (v) Initial administrative determination (IAD). SFD will make a 
determination regarding permit endorsements, renewal, replacement, 
change in permit ownership 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, change 
in permit ownership or change in vessel registration. The SFD will 
decline to act on an application for permit endorsement, renewal, 
replacement, or change in 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).

[[Page 46]]

    (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 affixed to the limited entry permit. The limited 
entry permit with an ``A'' endorsement may be registered to another 
person (i.e., change in permit ownership), or to a different vessel 
(i.e., change in vessel registration) 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, 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. Vessels registered to 
limited entry permits may be used to fish with open access gear, subject 
to the crossover provisions at Sec. 660.60(h)(7)(ii), except that 
vessels registered to sablefish-endorsed permits fishing in the 
sablefish primary season described at Sec. 660.231, 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.
    (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

[[Page 47]]

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 registered to 
another permit owner (i.e., change in permit ownership) or to another 
vessel (i.e., change in vessel registration).
    (2) A sablefish endorsement and its associated tier assignment are 
not separable from the limited entry permit, and therefore, may not be 
registered to another permit owner (i.e., change in permit ownership) or 
to another vessel (i.e., change in vessel registration) separately from 
the limited entry permit.
    (B) 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 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)(B)(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. 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 a 
limited entry permit with a sablefish endorsement or in the vessel 
registered to the permit shall document the extent of that ownership 
interest with NMFS 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, vessel owner, and/or vessel 
registration occurs as described at paragraph (b)(4)(v) and (vi) of this 
section. NMFS will not renew a sablefish-endorsed limited entry permit 
through

[[Page 48]]

the annual renewal process described at paragraph (b)(4)(i) of this 
section, or approve a change in permit owner, vessel owner, and/or 
vessel registration unless the Identification of Ownership Interest Form 
has been completed. Further, if NMFS 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)(B)(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)(B)(2) of this section. If NMFS 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)(B)(3) of this section, the 
partnership or corporation will be notified, NMFS 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 register 
ownership of 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 one year of the date of approval of the 
last change in permit ownership, 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.
    (C) Ownership limitation exemption. As described in (b)(3)(iv)(B) of 
this section, no individual person, partnership, or corporation in 
combination may own and/or hold more than three sablefish-endorsed 
permits. A vessel owner that meets the qualifying criteria described in 
paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(1) of this section may request an exemption from 
the ownership limitation.
    (1) Qualifying criteria. The three qualifying criteria for an 
ownership limitation exemption are: The vessel owner currently has no 
more than 20 percent ownership interest in a vessel registered to the 
sablefish endorsed permit, the vessel owner currently has ownership 
interest in Alaska sablefish individual fishing quota, and the vessel 
has fished in the past 12-month period in both the West Coast groundfish 
limited entry fixed gear fishery and the Sablefish IFQ Program in 
Alaska. The best evidence of a vessel owner having met these qualifying 
criteria will be state fish tickets or landing receipts from the West 
Coast states and Alaska. The qualifying vessel owner may seek an 
ownership limitation exemption for sablefish endorsed permits registered 
to no more than two vessels.
    (2) Application and issuance process for an ownership limitation 
exemption. The SFD will make the qualifying criteria and application 
instructions available online at www.westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/
fisheries/groundfish/index.html. A vessel owner who believes that they 
may qualify for the ownership limitation exemption must submit evidence 
with their application showing how their vessel has met the qualifying 
criteria described at paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(1) of this section. The 
vessel owner must also submit a Sablefish Permit Ownership Limitation 
Exemption Identification of Ownership Interest form that includes 
disclosure of percentage of ownership in the vessel and disclosure of 
individual shareholders in any entity. Paragraph (i) of this section 
sets out the relevant evidentiary standards and burden of proof. 
Applications may be submitted at any time to NMFS at: NMFS West Coast 
Region, Sustainable Fisheries Division, ATTN: Fisheries Permit Office--
Sablefish Ownership Limitation Exemption, 7600 Sand Point Way NE., 
Seattle, WA 98115. After receipt of a complete application, the SFD will 
issue an IAD in writing to the

[[Page 49]]

applicant determining whether the applicant qualifies for the exemption. 
If an applicant chooses to file an appeal of the IAD, the applicant must 
follow the appeals process outlined at paragraph (g) of this section 
and, for the timing of the appeals, at paragraph (g)(4)(ii) of this 
section.
    (3) Exemption status. If at any time a change occurs relative to the 
qualifying criteria described at paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(1), the vessel 
owner to whom the ownership limitation exemption applies must notify 
NMFS within 30 calendar days. If such changes mean the vessel owner no 
longer meets the qualifying criteria, the ownership limitation exemption 
becomes automatically null and void 30 calendar days after the date the 
vessel owner no longer meets the qualifying criteria. At any time, NMFS 
may request that the vessel owner submit a new exemption application. If 
NMFS at any time finds the vessel owner no longer meets the qualifying 
criteria described at paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(C)(1) of this section NMFS 
will issue an IAD, which may be appealed, as described at paragraph (g) 
of this section.
    (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, subpart D. 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. 
Each MS/CV endorsement has an associated catch history assignment (CHA) 
that is permanently linked as originally issued by NMFS and which cannot 
be divided or registered separately to another limited entry trawl 
permit. Regulations detailing this process and MS/CV-endorsed permit 
combinations are outlined in Sec. 660.150(g)(2), subpart D.
    (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, and C/P endorsements may not be registered to another 
permit owner (i.e., change in permit ownership or ownership interest) or 
to another vessel (i.e., change in vessel registration) separately from 
the limited entry permit. At-sea processing exemptions, specified at 
paragraph (b)(6) of this section, are associated with the vessel and not 
with the limited entry permit and may not be registered to another 
permit owner or to another vessel without losing the exemption.
    (4) Limited entry permit actions--renewal, combination, stacking, 
joint registration, change of permit owner or vessel owner, 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 15 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

[[Page 50]]

ownership as required under paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(B)(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.
    (G) An MS permit or a limited entry permit with a C/P endorsement 
will not be renewed, if it was the permit owner that failed to pay, 
until payment of all cost recovery program fees required pursuant to 
Sec. 660.115 has been made. The IAD, appeals, and final decision 
process for the cost recovery program is specified at Sec. 
660.115(d)(3)(ii).
    (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 MS/CV-endorsed permit or with another limited entry trawl 
permit with no MS/CV or C/P endorsement, the resulting permit will be 
MS/CV-endorsed with the associated CHA as specified at Sec. 
660.150(g)(2)(iv) and (v). If an MS/CV-endorsed permit is combined with 
a C/P-endorsed permit, the MS/CV endorsement and CHA 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, 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 
sablefish primary season described at Sec. 660.231, subpart E. 
Privileges, responsibilities, and restrictions associated with stacking 
permits to fish in the sablefish primary fishery are described at Sec. 
660.231, subpart E and at paragraph (b)(3)(iv) of this section.
    (iv) Joint registration of limited entry permits--(A) General. 
``Joint registration'' of limited entry permits, as defined at Sec. 
660.11, is the practice of simultaneously registering both trawl-
endorsed and longline or trap/pot-endorsed limited entry permits for use 
with a single vessel.
    (B) Restrictions. Subject to vessel size endorsements in paragraph 
(b)(3)(iii), any limited entry permit with a trawl endorsement and any 
limited entry permit with a longline or trap/pot endorsement may be 
jointly registered for use with a single vessel but only in one of the 
following configurations:
    (1) a single trawl-endorsed limited entry permit and one, two or 
three sablefish-endorsed fixed gear (longline and/or fishpot endorsed) 
limited entry permits; or
    (2) a single trawl-endorsed limited entry permit and one longline-
endorsed limited entry permit for use with a single vessel.
    (v) Changes in permit owner and/or vessel owner--(A) General. Change 
in permit owner and/or vessel owner applications must be submitted to 
NMFS with the appropriate documentation described at paragraphs 
(b)(4)(viii) and (ix) of this section. 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

[[Page 51]]

owner has been registered with and approved by NMFS. NMFS will not 
approve a change in permit owner 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)(B) of this section. NMFS 
will not approve a change in permit owner 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), 
and Sec. 660.150(f)(3), respectively. NMFS considers the following as a 
change in permit owner that would require registering with and approval 
by NMFS, including but not limited to: Selling the permit to another 
individual or entity; adding an individual or entity to the legal name 
on the permit; or removing an individual or entity from the legal name 
on the permit. A change in vessel owner includes any changes to the 
name(s) of any or all vessel owners, as registered with USCG or a state. 
The new owner(s) of a vessel registered to a limited entry permit must 
report any change in vessel ownership to NMFS within 30 calendar days 
after such change has been registered with the USCG or a state licensing 
agency.
    (B) Effective date. The change in permit ownership or change in the 
vessel holding the permit will be effective on the day the change is 
approved by NMFS, 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)(vi) of this 
section.
    (C) Sablefish-endorsed permits. If a permit owner submits an 
application to register a sablefish-endorsed limited entry permit to a 
new permit owner or vessel owner during the primary sablefish season 
described at Sec. 660.231 (generally April 1 through October 31), the 
initial permit owner 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 vessel owner must sign the 
application form acknowledging the amount of landings to date given by 
the initial permit owner. 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), 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.
    (D) Change in MS/CV endorsement registration. The requirements for a 
change in MS/CV endorsement registration between limited entry trawl 
permits are specified at Sec. 660.150(g)(2)(iv).
    (vi) 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 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)(viii) 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)(B)(4) and as required under paragraph (b)(4)(viii) 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. Change in vessel registration applications must be 
submitted to NMFS with the appropriate documentation described at 
paragraphs (b)(4)(viii) and (ix) of this section. At a minimum, a permit 
owner seeking to change vessel registration of a limited

[[Page 52]]

entry permit shall submit to NMFS 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. NMFS 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 change in vessel registration 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 (generally April 1 through October 31), the initial permit owner 
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 vessel owner associated with the new vessel must sign 
the application form acknowledging the amount of landings to date given 
by the initial permit owner. 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), 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.
    (vii) 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, unless specifically authorized by 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) may not be registered for 
use with a different vessel more than once per calendar year, except in 
cases of death of a vessel owner or if the vessel registered to the 
permit is totally lost as defined in Sec. 660.11. The exception for 
death of a vessel owner applies for a vessel owned by a partnership or a 
corporation if the person or persons with 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

[[Page 53]]

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).
    (viii) Application and supplemental documentation. Permit owners may 
request a change in vessel registration and/or change in permit owner or 
vessel owner by submitting a complete application form. In addition, a 
permit owner applying for a change in vessel registration and/or change 
in permit owner of a limited entry permit has the burden to submit 
evidence to prove that qualification requirements are met. If a change 
in vessel owner occurs, the new vessel owner 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 a 
permit owner or vessel owner, the permit owner must provide NMFS 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 a 
permit owner or vessel owner for sablefish-endorsed permits with a tier 
assignment for which a corporation or partnership is listed as permit 
owner and/or vessel owner, an Identification of Ownership Interest Form 
must be completed and included with the application form.
    (C) For a request to change a permit owner for an MS permit or for a 
request to change a vessel registration and/or change a permit owner or 
vessel owner 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 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 registers the permit to a 
designated individual(s); or, provides legal authority to the transferor 
to convey the permit ownership or to request a change in vessel 
registration.
    (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.
    (ix) Application forms available. Application forms for a change in 
vessel registration, permit owner, or vessel

[[Page 54]]

owner are available at: NMFS West Coast Region, Sustainable Fisheries 
Division, ATTN: Fisheries Permit Office, 7600 Sand Point Way NE., 
Seattle, WA 98115; or http://www.westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/fisheries/
management/groundfish_permits/limited_entry_permits.html. Contents of 
the application, and required supporting documentation, are also 
specified in the application form. Only complete applications will be 
processed.
    (x) Records maintenance. The SFD will maintain records of all 
limited entry permits that have been issued, renewed, 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.
    (6) At-sea processing exemptions--(i) Sablefish at-sea processing 
exemption. No new applications for sablefish at-sea processing 
exemptions will be accepted. As specified at Sec. 660.212(d)(3), 
subpart E, vessels are prohibited from processing sablefish at sea that 
were caught in the sablefish primary fishery without a sablefish at-sea 
processing exemption. Any sablefish at-sea processing exemptions were 
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 cannot be registered with any other vessel, vessel 
owner, or permit owner for any reason. The exemption only applies to at-
sea processing of sablefish caught in the sablefish primary fishery. The 
sablefish at-sea processing exemption will expire upon registration of 
the vessel to a new owner or if the vessel is totally lost, as defined 
at Sec. 660.11.
    (ii) Non-whiting at-sea processing exemption. No new applications 
for non-whiting at-sea processing exemptions will be accepted. As 
specified at Sec. 660.112(b)(1)(xii), subpart D, vessels are prohibited 
from processing non-whiting groundfish at sea that were caught in the 
Shorebased IFQ Program without a non-whiting at-sea processing 
exemption. Any non-whiting at-sea processing exemptions were issued to a 
particular vessel and that permit and/or 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 exemption only applies to at-sea 
processing of non-whiting groundfish caught in the Shorebased IFQ 
Program. The non-whiting at-sea processing exemption will expire upon 
registration of the vessel to a new owner or if the vessel is totally 
lost, as defined at Sec. 660.11.
    (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

[[Page 55]]

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/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, permit registration, 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 and/or change 
in permit owner or vessel owner, and endorsement upgrade, the Assistant 
Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries will make an 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 and/or change 
in permit owner or vessel owner, 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.

[[Page 56]]

    (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 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

[[Page 57]]

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
    (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

[[Page 58]]

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.
    (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.

[[Page 59]]

    (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 may be expressed as a ``Spawning 
Potential Ratio'' or ``SPR'' harvest rate.
    (a) Bocaccio. Bocaccio south of 40[deg]10[min] N. latitude was 
declared overfished in 1999. 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) Cowcod. Cowcod was declared overfished in 2000. The target year 
for rebuilding the cowcod stock south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. to 
BMSY is 2020. The harvest control rule to be used to rebuild 
the cowcod stock is an annual SPR harvest rate of 82.7 percent.
    (c) Darkblotched rockfish. Darkblotched rockfish was declared 
overfished in 2000. The target year for rebuilding the darkblotched 
rockfish stock to BMSY is 2025. The harvest control rule is 
ACL = ABC (P* = 0.45).
    (d) Pacific ocean perch (POP). POP was declared overfished in 1999. 
The target year for rebuilding the POP stock to BMSY is 2051. 
The harvest control rule to be used to rebuild the POP stock in 2017 and 
2018 is a constant catch ACL of 281 mt per year. In 2019 and thereafter 
the harvest control rule to be used to rebuild POP is an annual SPR 
harvest rate of 86.4 percent.
    (e) Yelloweye rockfish. Yelloweye rockfish was declared overfished 
in 2002. 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.

[82 FR 9638, Feb. 7, 2017]



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 Indian Tribe, 
Makah Indian Tribe, Quileute Indian Tribe and the Quinault Indian 
Nation.
    (c) Usual and accustomed fishing areas or U&A fishing areas. The 
Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribes' U&A fishing areas within the EEZ are 
set out in Sec. 660.4.
    (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 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

[[Page 60]]

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 fishing area or without a groundfish 
allocation. Fishing by a member of a Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribe 
outside the applicable Indian tribe's U&A 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 the U&A 
fishing areas described at Sec. 660.4, subpart A.
    (f) Pacific Coast treaty Indian fisheries allocations, harvest 
guidelines, and set-asides. Catch amounts may be specified in this 
section and in Tables 1a and 2a to subpart C of this part. Trip limits 
for certain species were recommended by the tribes and the Council and 
are specified in paragraph (g) of this section.
    (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. This allocation represents the total amount available to 
the treaty Indian fisheries before deductions for discard mortality.
    (ii) The Tribal allocation is 525 mt in 2017 and 548 mt in 2018 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.

[[Page 61]]

    (3) Lingcod. Lingcod taken in the treaty fisheries are subject to a 
harvest guideline of 250 mt.
    (4) Pacific whiting. The tribal allocation for 2017 is 77,251 mt.
    (5) Pacific cod. There is a tribal harvest guideline of 500 mt of 
Pacific cod per year. The tribes will manage their fisheries to stay 
within this harvest guideline.
    (6) Petrale sole. For petrale sole, treaty fishing vessels are 
restricted to a fleetwide harvest target of 220 mt each year.
    (7) Yellowtail rockfish. Yellowtail rockfish taken in the directed 
tribal mid-water trawl fisheries are subject to a catch limit of 1,000 
mt for the entire fleet, per year.
    (8) Spiny dogfish. Spiny dogfish taken in the treaty fisheries are 
subject to an overall expected total spiny dogfish catch of 275 mt per 
year.
    (9) Widow rockfish. Widow rockfish taken in the directed tribal 
midwater trawl fisheries are subject to a catch limit of 200 mt for the 
entire fleet, per year.
    (g) Pacific Coast treaty Indian fisheries management measures. Trip 
limits for certain species were recommended by the tribes and the 
Council and are specified here.
    (1) Rockfish. The tribes will require full retention of all 
overfished rockfish species and all other marketable rockfish species 
during treaty fisheries.
    (2) Yelloweye rockfish--are subject to a 100-lb (45-kg) trip limit.
    (3) Other rockfish--(i) Minor nearshore rockfish. Minor nearshore 
rockfish 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. Limited entry trip limits for waters off Washington are specified 
in Table 1 (North) to subpart D, and Table 2 (North) to subpart E of 
this part.
    (ii) Minor shelf rockfish and minor slope rockfish. Redstripe 
rockfish are subject to an 800 lb (363 kg) trip limit. Minor shelf 
(excluding redstripe rockfish), 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 fixed gear trip limit for those species 
if those limits are less restrictive than 300 lb (136 kg) per trip. 
Limited entry fixed gear trip limits are specified in Table 2 (North) to 
subpart E of this part.
    (iii) Other rockfish. All other rockfish, not listed specifically in 
paragraph (g) of this section, 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. Limited entry trip limits for waters off 
Washington are specified in Table 1 (North) to subpart D, and Table 2 
(North) to subpart E of this part.
    (4) 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.
    (5) 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.
    (6) EFH. Measures implemented to minimize adverse impacts to 
groundfish EFH, as described in Sec. 660.12 of this subpart, do not 
apply to tribal fisheries in their U&A fishing areas described at Sec. 
660.4, subpart A.
    (7) Small footrope trawl gear. Makah tribal members fishing in the 
bottom trawl fishery may use only small footrope (less than or equal to 
8 inches (20.3 cm)) bottom trawl gear.

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

[[Page 62]]

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, for those species not subject to 
the trawl and nontrawl allocations specified under Amendment 21 and in 
paragraph (c)(1) of this section, 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. Prior to the setting of fishery allocations, the TAC, 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, deductions to account for unforeseen catch 
events and deductions for EFPs. Deductions are listed in the footnotes 
of Tables 1a and 2a of subpart C of this part. 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:

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

    (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 
Pacific whiting fishery (MS sector, C/P sector, and Shorebased IFQ 
sectors). The distribution of allocation of darkblotched to each of 
these sectors will be done pro rata relative to the sector's allocation 
of the commercial harvest guideline for Pacific whiting. After deducting 
allocations for the Pacific whiting fishery, the remaining trawl 
allocation is allocated to the Shorebased IFQ sector.
    (B) Pacific Ocean Perch (POP). Allocate 17 percent or 30 mt, 
whichever is greater, of the total trawl allocation of POP to the 
Pacific whiting fishery (MS sector, C/P sector, and Shorebased IFQ 
sector). The distribution of POP to each sector will be done pro rata 
relative to the sector's allocation of the commercial harvest guideline 
for Pacific whiting. After deducting allocations for the Pacific whiting 
fishery, the remaining trawl allocation is allocated to Shorebased IFQ 
sector.
    (C) Widow rockfish. Allocate 52 percent of the total trawl 
allocation of widow rockfish to the Pacific whiting fishery if the stock 
is under rebuilding, or 10 percent of the total trawl allocation or 500 
mt of the trawl allocation, whichever is greater, if the stock is 
rebuilt. The distribution of the trawl allocation of widow to each 
sector will be done pro rata relative to the sector's allocation of the 
commercial harvest guideline for Pacific whiting. After deducting 
allocations for the Pacific whiting sectors, the remaining trawl 
allocation is allocated to Shorebased IFQ sector.
    (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 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]

[[Page 64]]

    (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 that are not subject to Amendment 21 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)(1)(ii) 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 
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.

[[Page 65]]

    (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). 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 recreational 
fisheries; the remaining yield (commercial harvest guideline) is divided 
between open access and limited entry fisheries. The limited entry 
fishery allocation is 90.6 percent of the commercial harvest guideline. 
The open access allocation is 9.4 percent of the commercial harvest 
guideline and includes incidental catch in non-groundfish fisheries, or 
incidental open access.
    (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 fishery 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.

[[Page 66]]

    (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 Pacific Coast treaty Indian fisheries, set-
asides will be deducted from the TAC, OY, ACL, or ACT when specified. 
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) [Reserved]
    (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. 
The PCGFMP sets the trawl bycatch mortality limit at 15 percent of the 
Area 2A total constant exploitation yield (TCEY) for legal size halibut 
(net weight), not to exceed 130,000 pounds annually for legal size 
halibut (net weight) for 2012 through 2014 and, beginning in 2015, not 
to exceed 100,000 pounds annually for legal size halibut (net weight). 
The TCEY used for these calculations will be the best estimate of the 
TCEY available from the International Pacific Halibut Commission at the 
time of the calculation. For the purpose of this paragraph, the term 
``legal sized'' halibut refers to halibut with a total length of 32 
inches and above, or O32, and the term ``sublegal sized'' halibut refers 
to halibut under 32 inches in total length, or U32. To determine the 
trawl bycatch mortality limit, the pounds of halibut available to the 
trawl fleet will be expanded from the legal sized halibut mortality (net 
weight) to a round weight legal and sublegal sized amount. To convert 
from net weight to round weight, multiply by the conversion factor used 
by the International Pacific Halibut Commission at the time of 
calculation for net weight to round weight. To convert from legal sized 
halibut to legal and sublegal sized halibut, multiply by the conversion 
factor from the NMFS trawl fishery bycatch report as reported to the 
International Pacific Halibut Commission at the time of calculation for 
legal sized to legal and sublegal sized halibut. The bycatch allocation 
percent can be adjusted downward or upward through the biennial 
specifications and management measures process but the upper bound on 
the maximum pounds of allocation can only be changed though an FMP 
amendment. Part of the overall total mortality 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). This set-aside can be adjusted through the 
biennial specifications and management measures process.

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

[[Page 67]]

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.
    (1) Except for Pacific whiting, every biennium, NMFS will implement 
OFLs, ABCs, and ACLs, if applicable, for each species or species group 
based on the harvest controls used in the previous biennium (referred to 
as default harvest control rules) applied to the best available 
scientific information. The default harvest control rules for each 
species or species group are listed in Appendix F to the PCGFMP and the 
biennial SAFE document. NMFS may implement OFLs, ABCs, and ACLs, if 
applicable, that vary from the default harvest control rules based on a 
Council recommendation.
    (2) [Reserved]
    (c) Routine management measures. 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 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 C through G of this part, including Tables 1a 
through 1c, and 2a through 2c to subpart C, 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/
deacon rockfish, splitnose rockfish, blackgill rockfish in the area 
south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., chilipepper, bocaccio, cowcod, Minor 
Nearshore Rockfish or shallow and deeper Minor Nearshore Rockfish, shelf 
or Minor Shelf Rockfish, and Minor Slope Rockfish; Dover sole, 
sablefish, shortspine thornyheads, and longspine thornyheads; petrale 
sole, rex sole, arrowtooth flounder, Pacific sanddabs, big skate, and 
the Other Flatfish complex, which is composed of those species plus any 
other flatfish species listed at Sec. 660.11; Pacific whiting; lingcod; 
Pacific cod; spiny dogfish; longnose skate; cabezon in Oregon and 
California and ``Other Fish'' as defined at Sec. 660.11. In addition to 
the species and species groups listed above, sub-limits or aggregate 
limits may be specified, specific to the Shorebased IFQ Program, for the 
following species: Big skate, California skate, California scorpionfish, 
leopard shark, soupfin shark, finescale codling, Pacific rattail 
(grenadier), ratfish, kelp greenling, shortbelly rockfish, and cabezon 
in Washington. Size limits have been designated as routine for sablefish 
and lingcod. Trip landing and frequency

[[Page 68]]

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.
    (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).
    (iv) List of IFQ species documented on Observer Program reporting 
form. As specified at Sec. 660.140(h)(1)(i), to be exempt from observer 
coverage while docked in port depends on documentation of specified 
retained IFQ species on the Observer Program reporting form. The list of 
IFQ species documented on the Observer Program form may be modified on a 
biennial or more frequent basis under routine management measures Sec. 
660.60(c)(1).
    (v) Shorebased IFQ Program surplus carryover percentage. As 
specified at Sec. 660.140(e)(5)(i), a percentage of surplus QP or IBQ 
pounds in a vessel account may be carried over from one year to the 
next. The percentage of surplus QP or IBQ pounds, that may be carried 
over may be modified on a biennial or more frequent basis, and may not 
be higher than 10 percent.
    (2) Recreational fisheries all gear types. Routine management 
measures for all groundfish species, separately or in any combination, 
include bag limits, size 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--(i) Depth-based management 
measures. Depth-based management measures, particularly closed areas 
known as Groundfish Conservation Areas, may be implemented in any 
fishery sector 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. Sec. 660.70 through 660.74. Depth-based management measures and 
closed areas may be used for the following conservation objectives: To 
protect and rebuild overfished stocks; to prevent the overfishing of any 
groundfish species by minimizing the direct or incidental catch of that 
species; or to minimize the incidental harvest of any protected or 
prohibited species taken in the groundfish fishery. Depth-based 
management measures and closed areas may be used for the following 
economic objectives: 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. BRAs may be implemented 
as an automatic action in the Pacific whiting fishery consistent with 
paragraph (d)(1) of this section. BRAs may be implemented as a routine 
action for vessels using midwater groundfish trawl gear consistent with 
the purposes

[[Page 69]]

for implementing depth-based management and the setting of closed areas 
as described in this paragraph.
    (ii) Non-tribal deductions from the ACL. Changes to the non-tribal 
amounts deducted from the TAC, ACLs, or ACT when specified, described at 
Sec. 660.55(b)(2) through (4) and specified in the footnotes to Tables 
1a through 1c, and 2a through 2c, to subpart C, have been designated as 
routine to make fish that would otherwise go unharvested available to 
other fisheries during the fishing year. Adjustments may be made to 
provide additional harvest opportunities in groundfish fisheries when 
catch in scientific research activities, non-groundfish fisheries, and 
EFPs are lower than the amounts that were initially deducted off the 
TAC, ACL, or ACT when specified, during the biennial specifications or 
to allocate yield from the deduction to account for unforeseen catch 
events to groundfish fisheries. When recommending adjustments to the 
non-tribal deductions, the Council shall consider the allocation 
framework criteria outlined in the PCGFMP and the objectives to maintain 
or extend fishing and marketing opportunities taking into account the 
best available fishery information on sector needs.
    (4) Inseason action for canary rockfish, yelloweye rockfish, and 
black rockfish in California State-Specific Federal Harvest Limits 
outside of a Council meeting. The Regional Administrator, NMFS West 
Coast Region, after consultation with the Chairman of the Pacific 
Fishery Management Council and the Fishery Director of the California 
Department of Fish and Wildlife, or their designees, is authorized to 
modify the following designated routine management measures for canary 
rockfish, yelloweye rockfish, and black rockfish off the coast of 
California. For black rockfish in commercial fisheries trip landing and 
frequency limits; and depth based management measures. For black, 
canary, and yelloweye rockfish in recreational fisheries bag limits; 
time/area closures; depth based management. Any modifications may be 
made only after NMFS has determined that a California state-specific 
federal harvest limit for canary rockfish, yelloweye rockfish, or black 
rockfish, is attained or projected to be attained prior to the first day 
of the next Council meeting. Any modifications may only be used to 
restrict catch of canary rockfish, yelloweye rockfish, or black rockfish 
off the coast of California.
    (d) Automatic actions. Automatic management actions may be initiated 
by the NMFS Regional Administrator or designee 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 to:
    (i) Close the MS or C/P sector when that sector's Pacific whiting 
allocation is reached, or is projected to be reached. The MS sector non-
coop fishery may be closed by automatic action when the Pacific whiting 
or non-whiting allocation to the non-coop fishery has been reached or is 
projected to be reached.
    (ii) Close one or both MS and C/P sectors when a non-whiting 
groundfish species with allocations is reached or projected to be 
reached.
    (iii) Reapportion unused allocations of non-whiting groundfish 
species between the MS and C/P sectors.
    (iv) Reapportion the unused portion of the tribal allocation of 
Pacific whiting to the MS sector, C/P sector, and Shorebased IFQ sector.
    (v) Implement the Ocean Salmon Conservation Zone, described at Sec. 
660.131, when NMFS projects the Pacific whiting fishery and the tribal 
whiting fishery combined will take in excess of 11,000 Chinook within a 
calendar year.
    (vi) Implement BRAs, described at Sec. 660.131, when NMFS projects 
a sector-specific allocation will be reached before the sector's whiting 
allocation.
    (2) Automatic actions are effective when actual notice is sent by 
NMFS identifying the effective time and date. Actual notice to fishers 
and processors will be by email, Internet 
www.westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/publications/fishery_management/
groundfish/public_notices/

[[Page 70]]

recent--public--notices.html), phone, letter, or press release. 
Allocation reapportionments will be followed by publication in the 
Federal Register, in which public comment will be sought for a 
reasonable period of time thereafter.
    (e) [Reserved]
    (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, 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 (in the definition of ``Land 
or 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 a landing must be removed from the 
vessel before a new fishing trip begins, except for processing vessels 
fishing in the catcher/processor or mothership sectors of the Pacific 
whiting fishery. Transfer of fish at sea is prohibited under Sec. 
660.12, 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). 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 conversions. (i) 
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.

[[Page 71]]

    (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 conversions and size limits. To determine the round 
weight, multiply 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 
effect for those fisheries. For headed and gutted (eviscerated) 
sablefish the weight conversion factor is 1.6 (multiply the headed and 
gutted weight by 1.6 to determine the round weight).
    (2) Lingcod. The following conversions apply in both limited entry 
fixed gear and open access fisheries.
    (i) North of 42[deg] N. lat., for lingcod with the head removed, the 
minimum size limit is 18 inches (46 cm), which corresponds to 22 inches 
(56 cm) total length for whole fish.
    (ii) South of 42[deg] N. lat., for lingcod with the head removed, 
the minimum size limit 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 lingcod is 
1.5. The conversion factor for lingcod that has only been gutted with 
the head on is 1.1.
    (B) Shorebased IFQ Program. For vessels landing sorted catch, the 
weight conversions for purposes of applying QP are provided below.
    (1) Sablefish. The weight conversion factor for headed and gutted 
(eviscerated) sablefish is 1.6.
    (2) Lingcod. The following conversions apply:
    (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.
    (3) Pacific whiting. For headed and gutted Pacific whiting (head 
removed just in front of the collar bone and viscera removed,) the 
weight conversion factor is 1.56; and for headed and gutted Pacific 
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

[[Page 72]]

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 
conversion factor is 1.58.
    (7) Dover sole, English sole, and ``other flatfish''. For headed and 
gutted (eviscerated), the weight conversion factor is 1.53.
    (8) Petrale sole. For headed and gutted (eviscerated), the weight 
conversion factor is 1.51.
    (9) Arrowtooth flounder. For headed and gutted (eviscerated), the 
weight conversion factor is 1.35.
    (10) Starry flounder. For headed and gutted (eviscerated), the 
weight conversion factor is 1.49.
    (6) Sorting. Trawl fishery sorting requirements are specified at 
Sec. 660.130(d), subpart D. Limited entry fixed gear 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. Crossover provisions apply to three 
activities: Fishing on different sides of a management line, or fishing 
in both the limited entry and open access fisheries, or fishing in both 
the Shorebased IFQ Program and the limited entry fixed gear fishery. 
NMFS uses different types of management areas for West Coast groundfish 
management, such as the north-south management areas as defined in Sec. 
660.11. Within a management area, a large ocean area with northern and 
southern boundary lines, trip limits, seasons, and conservation areas 
follow a single theme. Within each management area, there may be one or 
more conservation areas, defined at Sec. Sec. 660.11 and 660.70 through 
660.74. The provisions within this paragraph apply to vessels fishing in 
different 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. Crossover provisions also apply to vessels that are 
jointly registered, as defined at Sec. 660.11, fishing in both the 
Shorebased IFQ Program and the limited entry fixed gear fishery during 
the same cumulative limit period. Fishery specific crossover provisions 
can be found in subparts D through F of this part.
    (i) Fishing in management areas with different trip limits. Trip 
limits for a species or a species group may differ in different 
management areas along the coast. The following crossover provisions 
apply to vessels fishing in different geographical areas that have 
different cumulative or ``per trip'' trip limits for the same species or 
species group, with the following exceptions. 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 Program (see Sec. 
660.13(d)(5)(iv)(A), for valid Shorebased IFQ Program declarations); 
species that are subject only to daily trip limits; or to trip limits 
for black rockfish off Washington, as described at Sec. Sec. 660.230(e) 
and 660.330(e).
    (A) Going from a more restrictive to a more liberal area. If a 
vessel takes and retains any groundfish species or species group of 
groundfish in an area where a more restrictive trip limit applies before 
fishing in an area where a more liberal trip limit (or no trip limit) 
applies, then that vessel is subject to the more restrictive trip limit 
for the entire period to which that trip limit applies, no matter where 
the fish are taken and retained, possessed, or landed.
    (B) Going from a more liberal to a more restrictive area. If a 
vessel takes and retains a groundfish species or species group in an 
area where a higher trip limit or no trip limit applies, and takes and 
retains, possesses or lands the same species or species group in an area 
where a more restrictive trip limit applies, that vessel is subject to 
the more restrictive trip limit for the entire period to which that trip 
limit applies, no matter where the fish are taken and retained, 
possessed, or landed.
    (C) Fishing in two different areas where a species or species group 
is managed with different types of trip limits. During the fishing year, 
NMFS may implement management measures for a species or species group 
that set different types of trip limits (for example, per trip limits

[[Page 73]]

versus cumulative trip limits) for different areas. If a vessel fishes 
for a species or species group that is managed with different types of 
trip limits in two different areas within the same cumulative limit 
period, then that vessel is subject to the most restrictive overall 
cumulative limit for that species, regardless of where fishing occurs.
    (D) Minor rockfish. Several rockfish species are designated with 
species-specific limits on one side of the 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. 
management line, and are included as part of a minor rockfish complex on 
the other side of the line. A vessel that takes and retains fish from a 
minor rockfish complex (nearshore, shelf, or slope) on both sides of a 
management line during a single cumulative limit period is subject to 
the more restrictive cumulative limit for that minor rockfish complex 
during that period.
    (1) If a vessel takes and retains minor slope rockfish north of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat., that vessel is also permitted to take and 
retain, possess or land splitnose rockfish up to its cumulative limit 
south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., even if splitnose rockfish were a part 
of the landings from minor slope rockfish taken and retained north of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat.
    (2) If a vessel takes and retains minor slope rockfish south of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat., that vessel is also permitted to take and 
retain, possess or land POP up to its cumulative limit north of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat., even if POP were a part of the landings from 
minor slope rockfish taken and retained south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat.
    (ii) Fishing in both limited entry and open access fisheries--
    (A) Fishing in limited entry and open access fisheries with 
different trip limits. 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. Except such 
provisions do not apply to IFQ species (defined at Sec. 660.140(c), 
subpart D) for vessels that are declared into the Shorebased IFQ Program 
(see Sec. 660.13(d)(5)(iv)(A) for valid Shorebased IFQ Program 
declarations). A vessel that fishes 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 registered to it at any 
time during the trip limit period 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 registered to it at any 
time during the trip limit period 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.
    (B) Limited entry permit restrictions for vessels fishing in the 
open access fishery--(1) Vessel registered to a limited entry trawl 
permit. To fish with open access gear, defined at Sec. 660.11, a vessel 
registered to a limited entry trawl permit must make the appropriate 
fishery declaration, as specified at Sec. 660.14(d)(5)(iv)(A). In 
addition, a vessel registered to a limit entry trawl permit must remove 
the permit from their vessel, as specified at Sec. 660.25(b)(4)(vi), 
unless the vessel will be fishing in the open access fishery under one 
of the following declarations specified at Sec. 660.13(d):
    (i) Non-groundfish trawl gear for pink shrimp,
    (ii) Non-groundfish trawl gear for ridgeback prawn,
    (iii) Non-groundfish trawl gear for California halibut,
    (iv) Non-groundfish trawl gear for sea cucumber,

requirements of both paragraphs (h)(7)(ii)(B)(1) and (2) of this 
section.
    (iii) Fishing in both the Shorebased IFQ Program and the limited 
entry fixed gear fishery for vessels that are jointly registered.
    (A) Fishing in the Shorebased IFQ Program and limited entry fixed 
gear fishery with different trip limits. If a vessel fishes in both the 
Shorebased IFQ Program and the limited entry fixed gear fishery during a 
cumulative limit period, they are subject to the most restrictive trip 
limits for non-IFQ species.
    (B) Fishing in the Shorebased IFQ Program and the limited entry 
fixed gear sablefish primary fishery with different trip limits. If a 
vessel is jointly registered and one or more of the limited entry 
permits is sablefish endorsed, any sablefish landings made by a vessel 
declared into the limited entry fixed gear fishery after the start of 
the sablefish primary fishery count towards the tier limit(s), per 
regulations at Sec. 660.232(a)(2), subpart E. Any sablefish landings 
made by a vessel declared into the Shorebased IFQ Program must be 
covered by quota pounds, per regulations at Sec. 660.112(b), subpart D, 
and will not count towards the tier limit(s).

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 detailed at subparts D 
through G of part 660.

Sec. 660.74  Latitude/longitude coordinates defining the 180 fm
(329 m) through 250 fm (457 m) depth contours.

    Boundaries for RCAs are defined by straight lines connecting a 
series of latitude/longitude coordinates. This section provides 
coordinates for the 180 fm (329 m) through 250 fm (457 m) depth 
contours.
    (a) The 180-fm (329-m) depth contour used between the U.S. border 
with Canada and the U.S. border with Mexico is defined by straight lines 
connecting all of the following points in the order stated:

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 the EEZ for areas approximately 
north of Cape Mendocino. Approximately south of Cape Mendocino, the 3500 
m depth contour and EFH is substantially

[[Page 141]]

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 wholly off the coast of California. Fishing activity that is 
prohibited or permitted within the EEZ in a particular area designated 
as a groundfish EFH Conservation Area is detailed at Sec. 660.11; 
Sec. Sec. 660.112 and 660.130; Sec. Sec. 660.212

Sec. Table 1a to Part 660, Subpart C--2017, Specifications of OFL, ABC, 
            ACL, ACT and Fishery HG (Weights in Metric Tons)
[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR07JY17.008


[[Page 155]]


    \a\ Annual catch limits (ACLs), annual catch targets (ACTs) and 
harvest guidelines (HGs) are specified as total catch values.
    \b\ Fishery HGs means the HG or quota after subtracting Pacific 
Coast treaty Indian tribes allocations and projected catch, projected 
research catch, deductions for fishing mortality in non-groundfish 
fisheries, and deductions for EFPs from the ACL or ACT.
    \c\ Bocaccio. A stock assessment was conducted in 2015 for the 
bocaccio stock between the U.S.-Mexico border and Cape Blanco. The stock 
is managed with stock-specific harvest specifications south of 
40[deg]10' N. lat. and within the Minor Shelf Rockfish complex north of 
40[deg]10' N. lat. A historical catch distribution of approximately 7.4 
percent was used to apportion the assessed stock to the area north of 
40[deg]10' N. lat. The bocaccio stock was estimated to be at 36.8 
percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The OFL of 2,139 mt is 
projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an FMSY proxy of F50%. The 
ABC of 2,044 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/
P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The 790 mt ACL is based on 
the current rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2022 and an 
SPR harvest rate of 77.7 percent. 15.4 mt is deducted from the ACL to 
accommodate the incidental open access fishery (0.8 mt), EFP catch (10 
mt) and research catch (4.6 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 774.6 mt. 
The California recreational fishery has an HG of 326.1 mt.
    \d\ Cowcod. A stock assessment for the Conception Area was conducted 
in 2013 and the stock was estimated to be at 33.9 percent of its 
unfished biomass in 2013. The Conception Area OFL of 58 mt is projected 
in the 2013 rebuilding analysis using an FMSY proxy of F50%. The OFL 
contribution of 12 mt for the unassessed portion of the stock in the 
Monterey area is based on depletion-based stock reduction analysis. The 
OFLs for the Monterey and Conception areas were summed to derive the 
south of 40[deg]10' N. lat. OFL of 70 mt. The ABC for the area south of 
40[deg]10' N. lat. is 63 mt. The assessed portion of the stock in the 
Conception Area is considered category 2, with a Conception area 
contribution to the ABC of 53 mt, which is an 8.7 percent reduction from 
the Conception area OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.45). The unassessed portion 
of the stock in the Monterey area is considered a category 3 stock, with 
a contribution to the ABC of 10 mt, which is a 16.6 percent reduction 
from the Monterey area OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.45). A single ACL of 10 mt 
is being set for both areas combined. The ACL of 10 mt is based on the 
rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2020 and an SPR harvest 
rate of 82.7 percent, which is equivalent to an exploitation rate (catch 
over age 11+ biomass) of 0.007. 2 mt is deducted from the ACL to 
accommodate the incidental open access fishery (less than 0.1 mt), EFP 
fishing (less than 0.1 mt) and research activity (2 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 8 mt. Any additional mortality in research activities will 
be deducted from the ACL. A single ACT of 4 mt is being set for both 
areas combined.
    \e\ Darkblotched rockfish. A 2015 stock assessment estimated the 
stock to be at 39 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The OFL of 
671 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an FMSY proxy of 
F50%. The ABC of 641 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is set 
equal to the ABC, as the stock is projected to be above its target 
biomass of B40% in 2017. 77.3 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate 
the Tribal fishery (0.2 mt), the incidental open access fishery (24.5 
mt), EFP catch (0.1 mt), research catch (2.5 mt) and an additional 
deduction for unforeseen catch events (50 mt), resulting in a fishery HG 
of 563.8 mt. Of the 50 mt initially deducted from the ACL to account for 
unforeseen catch events, 50 mt is distributed to the mothership and 
catcher/processor sectors inseason, 25 mt to each sector, consistent 
with 660.60(c)(3)(ii).
    \f\ Pacific ocean perch. A stock assessment was conducted in 2011 
and the stock was estimated to be at 19.1 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2011. The OFL of 964 mt for the area north of 40[deg]10' N. 
lat. is based on an updated catch-only projection of the 2011 rebuilding 
analysis using an F50% FMSY proxy. The ABC of 922 mt is a 4.4 percent 
reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 
stock. The ACL is based on the current rebuilding plan with a target 
year to rebuild of 2051 and a constant catch amount of 281 mt in 2017 
and 2018, followed in 2019 and beyond by ACLs based on an SPR harvest 
rate of 86.4 percent. 49.4 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate 
the Tribal fishery (9.2 mt), the incidental open access fishery (10 mt), 
research catch (5.2 mt) and an additional deduction for unforeseen catch 
events (25 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 231.6 mt. Of the 10 mt 
initially deducted from the ACL to account for mortality in the 
incidental open access fishery, a total of 7 mt is distributed to the 
mothership and catcher/processor sectors inseason, 3.5 mt to each sector 
consistent with 660.60(c)(3)(ii), resulting in a 3 mt deduction from the 
ACL for mortality in the incidental open access fishery. Of the 25 mt 
initially deducted from the ACL to account for unforeseen catch events, 
25 mt is distributed to the mothership and catcher/processor sectors 
inseason, 12.5 mt to each sector, consistent with 660.60(c)(3)(ii).
    \g\ Yelloweye rockfish. A stock assessment update was conducted in 
2011. The stock was estimated to be at 21.4 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2011. The 57 mt coastwide OFL is based on a catch-only update 
of the 2011 stock assessment, assuming actual catches since 2011 and 
using an FMSY proxy of F50%.

[[Page 156]]

The ABC of 47 mt is a 16.7 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/
P*=0.40) because it is a category 2 stock. The 20 mt ACL is based on the 
current rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2074 and an SPR 
harvest rate of 76.0 percent. 5.4 mt is deducted from the ACL to 
accommodate the Tribal fishery (2.3 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (0.4 mt), EFP catch (less than 0.1 mt) and research catch (2.7 
mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 14.6 mt. Recreational HGs are: 3.3 mt 
(Washington); 3 mt (Oregon); and 3.9 mt (California).
    \h\ Arrowtooth flounder. The arrowtooth flounder stock was last 
assessed in 2007 and was estimated to be at 79 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2007. The OFL of 16,571 mt is derived from a catch-only 
update of the 2007 stock assessment assuming actual catches since 2007 
and using an F30% FMSY proxy. The ABC of 13,804 mt is a 16.7 percent 
reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) because it is a category 2 
stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its 
target biomass of B25%. 2,098.1 mt is deducted from the ACL to 
accommodate the Tribal fishery (2,041 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (40.8 mt), and research catch (16.4 mt), resulting in a fishery 
HG of 11,705.9 mt.
    \i\ Big skate. The OFL of 541 mt is based on an estimate of trawl 
survey biomass and natural mortality. The ABC of 494 mt is an 8.7 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.45) as it is a 
category 2 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC. 57.4 mt is deducted 
from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (15 mt), the incidental 
open access fishery (38.4 mt), and research catch (4 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 436.6 mt.
    \j\ Black rockfish (California). A 2015 stock assessment estimated 
the stock to be at 33 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The OFL 
of 349 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an FMSY proxy 
of F50%. The ABC of 334 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is set 
equal to the ABC because the stock is projected to be above its target 
biomass of B40% in 2017. 1 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate 
EFP catch (1 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 333 mt.
    \k\ Black rockfish (Oregon). A 2015 stock assessment estimated the 
stock to be at 60 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The OFL of 
577 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an FMSY proxy of 
F50%. The ABC of 527 mt is an 8.7 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.45) because it is a category 2 stock. The ACL is set 
equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of B40%. 
0.6 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open 
access fishery (0.6 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 526.4 mt.
    \l\ Black rockfish (Washington). A 2015 stock assessment estimated 
the stock to be at 43 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The OFL 
of 319 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an FMSY proxy 
of F50%. The ABC of 305 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is set 
equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of B40%. 
18 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery, 
resulting in a fishery HG of 287 mt.
    \m\ Blackgill rockfish. Blackgill rockfish contributes to the 
harvest specifications for the Minor Slope Rockfish South complex. See 
footnote/pp.
    \n\ Cabezon (California). A cabezon stock assessment was conducted 
in 2009. The cabezon spawning biomass in waters off California was 
estimated to be at 48.3 percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL 
of 157 mt is calculated using an FMSY proxy of F45%. The ABC of 150 mt 
is based on a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) 
because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC 
because the stock is above its target biomass of B40%. 0.3 mt is 
deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open access fishery, 
resulting in a fishery HG of 149.7 mt.
    \o\ Cabezon (Oregon). A cabezon stock assessment was conducted in 
2009. The cabezon spawning biomass in waters off Oregon was estimated to 
be at 52 percent of its unfished biomass in 2009. The OFL of 49 mt is 
calculated using an FMSY proxy of F45%. The ABC of 47 mt is based on a 
4.4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is 
a category 1 species. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the stock 
is above its target biomass of B40%. There are no deductions from the 
ACL so the fishery HG is also equal to the ACL of 47 mt.
    \p\ California scorpionfish. A California scorpionfish assessment 
was conducted in 2005 and was estimated to be at 79.8 percent of its 
unfished biomass in 2005. The OFL of 289 mt is based on projections from 
a catch-only update of the 2005 assessment assuming actual catches since 
2005 and using an FMSY harvest rate proxy of F50%. The ABC of 264 mt is 
an 8.7 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.45) because it 
is a category 2 stock. The ACL is set at a constant catch amount of 150 
mt. 2.2 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open 
access fishery (2 mt) and research catch (0.2 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 147.8 mt. An ACT of 111 mt is established.
    \q\ Canary rockfish. A stock assessment was conducted in 2015 and 
the stock was estimated to be at 55.5 percent of its unfished biomass 
coastwide in 2015. The coastwide OFL of 1,793 mt is projected in the 
2015 assessment using an FMSY harvest rate proxy of F50%. The ABC of 
1,714 mt is a 4.4 percent

[[Page 157]]

reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 
stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its 
target biomass of B40%. 247 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate 
the Tribal fishery (50 mt), the incidental open access fishery (1.2 mt), 
EFP catch (1 mt), research catch (7.2 mt), and an additional deduction 
for unforeseen catch events (188 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 
1,466.6 mt. Recreational HGs are: 50 mt (Washington); 75 mt (Oregon); 
and 135 mt (California).
    \r\ Chilipepper. A coastwide update assessment of the chilipepper 
stock was conducted in 2015 and estimated to be at 64 percent of its 
unfished biomass in 2015. Chilipepper are managed with stock-specific 
harvest specifications south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and within the 
Minor Shelf Rockfish complex north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. Projected 
OFLs are stratified north and south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. based on 
the average historical assessed area catch, which is 93 percent for the 
area south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and 7 percent for the area north of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The OFL of 2,727 mt for the area south of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat. is projected in the 2015 assessment using an FMSY 
proxy of F50%. The ABC of 2,607 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is 
set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of 
B40%. 45.9 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental 
open access fishery (5 mt), EFP fishing (30 mt), and research catch 
(10.9 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 2,561.1 mt.
    \s\ Dover sole. A 2011 Dover sole assessment estimated the stock to 
be at 83.7 percent of its unfished biomass in 2011. The OFL of 89,702 mt 
is based on an updated catch-only projection from the 2011 stock 
assessment assuming actual catches since 2011 and using an FMSY proxy of 
F30%. The ABC of 85,755 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL could 
be set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of 
B25%. However, the ACL of 50,000 mt is set at a level below the ABC and 
higher than the maximum historical landed catch. 1,593.7 mt is deducted 
from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (1,497 mt), the 
incidental open access fishery (54.8 mt), and research catch (41.9 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 48,406.3 mt.
    \t\ English sole. A 2013 stock assessment was conducted, which 
estimated the stock to be at 88 percent of its unfished biomass in 2013. 
The OFL of 10,914 mt is projected in the 2013 assessment using an FMSY 
proxy of F30%. The ABC of 9,964 mt is an 8.7 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.45) because it is a category 2 stock. The ACL is 
set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of 
B25%. 212.8 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal 
fishery (200 mt), the incidental open access fishery (7.0 mt) and 
research catch (5.8 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 9,751.2 mt.
    \u\ Lingcod north. The 2009 lingcod assessment modeled two 
populations north and south of the California-Oregon border (42[deg] N. 
lat.). Both populations were healthy with stock depletion estimated at 
62 and 74 percent for the north and south, respectively in 2009. The OFL 
is based on an updated catch-only projection from the 2009 assessment 
assuming actual catches since 2009 and using an FMSY proxy of F45%. The 
OFL is apportioned north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. by adding 48% of the 
OFL from California, resulting in an OFL of 3,549 mt for the area north 
of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The ABC of 3,333 mt is based on a 4.4 percent 
reduction ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) from the OFL contribution for the area 
north of 42[deg] N. lat. because it is a category 1 stock, and an 8.7 
percent reduction ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.45) from the OFL contribution for 
the area between 42[deg] N. lat. and 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. because it 
is a category 2 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the stock 
is above its target biomass of B40%. 278.2 mt is deducted from the ACL 
for the Tribal fishery (250 mt), the incidental open access fishery (16 
mt), EFP catch (0.5 mt) and research catch (11.7 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 3,054.8 mt.
    \v\ Lingcod south. The 2009 lingcod assessment modeled two 
populations north and south of the California-Oregon border (42[deg] N. 
lat.). Both populations were healthy with stock depletion estimated at 
62 and 74 percent for the north and south, respectively in 2009.The OFL 
is based on an updated catch-only projection of the 2009 stock 
assessment assuming actual catches since 2009 using an FMSY proxy of 
F45%. The OFL is apportioned by subtracting 48% of the California OFL, 
resulting in an OFL of 1,502 mt for the area south of 40[deg]10[min] N. 
lat. The ABC of 1,251 mt is based on a 16.7 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) because it is a category 2 stock. The ACL is 
set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of 
B40%. 9 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open 
access fishery (6.9 mt), EFP fishing (1 mt), and research catch (1.1 
mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,242 mt.
    \w\ Longnose skate. A stock assessment was conducted in 2007 and the 
stock was estimated to be at 66 percent of its unfished biomass. The OFL 
of 2,556 mt is derived from the 2007 stock assessment using an FMSY 
proxy of F50%. The ABC of 2,444 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL of 
2,000 mt is a fixed harvest level that provides greater access to the 
stock and is less than the ABC. 147 mt is deducted from the ACL to 
accommodate the Tribal fishery (130 mt), incidental open access fishery 
(3.8 mt), and research catch (13.2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 
1,853 mt.

[[Page 158]]

    \x\ Longspine thornyhead. A 2013 longspine thornyhead coastwide 
stock assessment estimated the stock to be at 75 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2013. A coastwide OFL of 4,571 mt is projected in the 2013 
stock assessment using an F50% FMSY proxy. The coastwide ABC of 3,808 mt 
is a 16.7 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) because 
it is a category 2 stock. For the portion of the stock that is north of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat., the ACL is 2,894 mt, and is 76 percent of the 
coastwide ABC based on the average swept-area biomass estimates (2003-
2012) from the NMFS NWFSC trawl survey. 46.8 mt is deducted from the ACL 
to accommodate the Tribal fishery (30 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (3.3 mt), and research catch (13.5 mt), resulting in a fishery 
HG of 2,847.2 mt. For that portion of the stock south of 34[deg]27[min] 
N. lat. the ACL is 914 mt and is 24 percent of the coastwide ABC based 
on the average swept-area biomass estimates (2003-2012) from the NMFS 
NWFSC trawl survey. 3.2 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
incidental open access fishery (1.8 mt), and research catch (1.4 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 910.8 mt.
    \y\ Pacific cod. The 3,200 mt OFL is based on the maximum level of 
historic landings. The ABC of 2,221 mt is a 30.6 percent reduction from 
the OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.40) because it is a category 3 stock. The 
1,600 mt ACL is the OFL reduced by 50 percent as a precautionary 
adjustment. 509 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal 
fishery (500 mt), research catch (7 mt), and the incidental open access 
fishery (2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,091 mt.
    \z\ Pacific whiting. The coastwide (U.S. and Canada) stock 
assessment was published in 2017 and estimated the spawning stock to be 
at 89 percent of its unfished biomass. The 2017 coastwide OFL of 969,840 
mt is based on the 2017 assessment with an F40% FMSY proxy. The 2017 
coastwide, unadjusted Total Allowable Catch (TAC) of 531,501 mt is based 
on the 2017 stock assessment and the recommendation by the Joint 
Management Committee (JMC), based on a precautionary approach. The U.S. 
TAC is 73.88 percent of the coastwide TAC, or 392,673 mt unadjusted TAC 
for 2017. 15 percent of each party's unadjusted 2016 TAC (48,760 mt for 
the U.S) is added to each party's 2017 unadjusted TAC, resulting in a 
U.S. adjusted 2017 TAC of 431,433 mt. The 2017 fishery HG for Pacific 
whiting is 362,682 mt. This amount was determined by deducting from the 
total U.S. TAC of 431,433 mt, the 77,251 mt tribal allocation, along 
with 1,500 mt for scientific research catch and fishing mortality in 
non-groundfish fisheries.
    \aa\ Petrale sole. A 2015 stock assessment update was conducted, 
which estimated the stock to be at 31 percent of its unfished biomass in 
2015. The OFL of 3,280 mt is projected in the 2015 assessment using an 
FMSY proxy of F30%. The ABC of 3,136 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from 
the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL 
is set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of 
B25%. 240.9 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal 
fishery (220 mt), the incidental open access fishery (3.2 mt) and 
research catch (17.7 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 2,895.1 mt.
    \bb\ Sablefish north. A coastwide sablefish stock assessment update 
was conducted in 2015. The coastwide sablefish biomass was estimated to 
be at 33 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The coastwide OFL of 
8,050 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an FMSY proxy 
of F45%. The ABC of 7,350 mt is an 8.7 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.40). The 40-10 adjustment is applied to the ABC to 
derive a coastwide ACL value because the stock is in the precautionary 
zone. This coastwide ACL value is not specified in regulations. The 
coastwide ACL value is apportioned north and south of 36[deg] N. lat., 
using the 2003-2014 average estimated swept area biomass from the NMFS 
NWFSC trawl survey, with 73.8 percent apportioned north of 36[deg] N. 
lat. and 26.2 percent apportioned south of 36[deg] N. lat. The northern 
ACL is 5,252 mt and is reduced by 525 mt for the Tribal allocation (10 
percent of the ACL north of 36[deg] N. lat.). The 525 mt Tribal 
allocation is reduced by 1.5 percent to account for discard mortality. 
Detailed sablefish allocations are shown in Table 1c.
    \cc\ Sablefish south. The ACL for the area south of 36[deg] N. lat. 
is 1,864 mt (26.2 percent of the calculated coastwide ACL value). 5 mt 
is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open access 
fishery (2 mt) and research catch (3 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 
1,859 mt.
    \dd\ Shortbelly rockfish. A non-quantitative shortbelly rockfish 
assessment was conducted in 2007. The spawning stock biomass of 
shortbelly rockfish was estimated to be 67 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. The OFL of 6,950 mt is based on the estimated MSY in 
the 2007 stock assessment. The ABC of 5,789 mt is a 16.7 percent 
reduction of the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) because it is a category 2 
stock. The 500 mt ACL is set to accommodate incidental catch when 
fishing for co-occurring healthy stocks and in recognition of the 
stock's importance as a forage species in the California Current 
ecosystem. 10.9 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
incidental open access fishery (8.9 mt) and research catch (2 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 489.1 mt.
    \ee\ Shortspine thornyhead. A 2013 coastwide shortspine thornyhead 
stock assessment estimated the stock to be at 74.2 percent of its 
unfished biomass in 2013. A coastwide OFL of 3,144 mt is projected in 
the 2013 stock assessment using an F50% FMSY proxy. The coastwide ABC of 
2,619 mt is a 16.7 percent

[[Page 159]]

reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) because it is a category 2 
stock. For the portion of the stock that is north of 34[deg]27[min] N. 
lat., the ACL is 1,713 mt. The northern ACL is 65.4 percent of the 
coastwide ABC based on the average swept-area biomass estimates (2003-
2012) from the NMFS NWFSC trawl survey. 59 mt is deducted from the ACL 
to accommodate the Tribal fishery (50 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (1.8 mt), and research catch (7.2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG 
of 1,654 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 906 mt. 
The southern ACL is 34.6 percent of the coastwide ABC based on the 
average swept-area biomass estimates (2003-2012) from the NMFS NWFSC 
trawl survey. 42.3 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
incidental open access fishery (41.3 mt) and research catch (1 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 863.7 mt for the area south of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat.
    \ff\ Spiny dogfish. A coastwide spiny dogfish stock assessment was 
conducted in 2011. The coastwide spiny dogfish biomass was estimated to 
be at 63 percent of its unfished biomass in 2011. The coastwide OFL of 
2,514 mt is derived from the 2011 assessment using an FMSY proxy of 
F50%. The coastwide ABC of 2,094 mt is a 16.7 percent reduction from the 
OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.40) because it is a category 2 stock. The ACL is 
set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of 
B40%. 338 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery 
(275 mt), the incidental open access fishery (49.5 mt), EFP catch (1 
mt), and research catch (12.5 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,756 
mt.
    \gg\ Splitnose rockfish. A coastwide splitnose rockfish assessment 
was conducted in 2009 that estimated the stock to be at 66 percent of 
its unfished biomass in 2009. Splitnose rockfish in the north is managed 
in the Minor Slope Rockfish complex and with stock-specific harvest 
specifications south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The coastwide OFL is 
projected in the 2009 assessment using an FMSY proxy of F50%. The 
coastwide OFL is apportioned north and south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. 
based on the average 1916-2008 assessed area catch, resulting in 64.2 
percent of the coastwide OFL apportioned south of 40[deg]10[min] N. 
lat., and 35.8 percent apportioned for the contribution of splitnose 
rockfish to the northern Minor Slope Rockfish complex. The southern OFL 
of 1,841 mt results from the apportionment described above. The southern 
ABC of 1,760 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the southern OFL 
([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is set 
equal to the ABC because the stock is estimated to be above its target 
biomass of B40%. 10.7 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
incidental open access fishery (0.2 mt), research catch (9 mt) and EFP 
catch (1.5 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,749.3 mt.
    \hh\ Starry flounder. The stock was assessed in 2005 and was 
estimated to be above 40 percent of its unfished biomass in 2005 (44 
percent in Washington and Oregon, and 62 percent in California). The 
coastwide OFL of 1,847 mt is set equal to the 2016 OFL, which was 
derived from the 2005 assessment using an FMSY proxy of F30%. The ABC of 
1,282 mt is a 30.6 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=1.44/P*=0.40) 
because it is a category 3 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC 
because the stock was estimated to be above its target biomass of B25% 
in 2017. 10.3 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal 
fishery (2 mt), and the incidental open access fishery (8.3 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,271.7 mt.
    \ii\ Widow rockfish. The widow rockfish stock was assessed in 2015 
and was estimated to be at 75 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. 
The OFL of 14,130 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using the 
F50% FMSY proxy. The ABC of 13,508 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from 
the OFL ([sigma]=0.36/P*=0.45) because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL 
is set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its target biomass of 
B40%. 217.7 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal 
fishery (200 mt), the incidental open access fishery (0.5 mt), EFP catch 
(9 mt) and research catch (8.2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 
13,290.3 mt.
    \jj\ Yellowtail rockfish. A 2013 yellowtail rockfish stock 
assessment was conducted for the portion of the population north of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The estimated stock depletion was 67 percent of 
its unfished biomass in 2013. The OFL of 6,786 mt is projected in the 
2013 stock assessment using an FMSY proxy of F50%. The ABC of 6,196 mt 
is an 8.7 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma]=0.72/P*=0.45) because 
it is a category 2 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the 
stock is above its target biomass of B40%. 1,030 mt is deducted from the 
ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (1,000 mt), the incidental open 
access fishery (3.4 mt), EFP catch (10 mt) and research catch (16.6 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 5,166.1 mt.
    \kk\ Minor Nearshore Rockfish north. The OFL for Minor Nearshore 
Rockfish north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 118 mt is the sum of the OFL 
contributions for the component species managed in the complex. The ABCs 
for the minor rockfish complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.72 for 
category 2 stocks (blue/deacon rockfish in California, brown rockfish, 
China rockfish, and copper rockfish) and a sigma value of 1.44 for 
category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting ABC of 
105 mt is the summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. 
The ACL of 105 mt is the sum of contributing ABCs of healthy assessed 
stocks

[[Page 160]]

and unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contributions for blue/deacon 
rockfish in California where the 40-10 adjustment was applied to the ABC 
contribution for this stock because it is in the precautionary zone. 1.8 
mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (1.5 mt) 
and the incidental open access fishery (0.3 mt), resulting in a fishery 
HG of 103.2 mt. Between 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and 42[deg] N. lat. the 
Minor Nearshore Rockfish complex north has a HG of 40.2 mt. Blue/deacon 
rockfish south of 42[deg] N. lat. has a stock-specific HG, described in 
footnote nn/.
    \ll\ Minor Shelf Rockfish north. The OFL for Minor Shelf Rockfish 
north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 2,303 mt is the sum of the OFL 
contributions for the component species within the complex. The ABCs for 
the minor rockfish complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.36 for a 
category 1 stock (chilipepper), a sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 
stocks (greenspotted rockfish between 40[deg]10[min] and 42[deg] N. lat. 
and greenstriped rockfish), and a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 
stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting ABC of 2,049 mt is 
the summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL 
of 2,049 mt is the sum of contributing ABCs of healthy assessed stocks 
and unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contribution of greenspotted 
rockfish in California where the 40-10 adjustment was applied to the ABC 
contribution for this stock because it is in the precautionary zone. 
83.8 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (30 
mt), the incidental open access fishery (26 mt), EFP catch (3 mt), and 
research catch (24.8 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,965.2 mt.
    \mm\ Minor Slope Rockfish north. The OFL for Minor Slope Rockfish 
north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 1,897 mt is the sum of the OFL 
contributions for the component species within the complex. The ABCs for 
the Minor Slope Rockfish complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.39 
for aurora rockfish, a sigma value of 0.36 for the other category 1 
stock (splitnose rockfish), a sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks 
(rougheye rockfish, blackspotted rockfish, and sharpchin rockfish), and 
a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 
0.45. A unique sigma of 0.39 was calculated for aurora rockfish because 
the variance in estimated spawning biomass was greater than the 0.36 
used as a proxy for other category 1 stocks. The resulting ABC of 1,755 
mt is the summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The 
ACL is set equal to the ABC because all the assessed component stocks 
(i.e., rougheye rockfish, blackspotted rockfish, sharpchin rockfish, and 
splitnose rockfish) are above the target biomass of B40%. 65.1 mt is 
deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (36 mt), the 
incidental open access fishery (18.6 mt), EFP catch (1 mt), and research 
catch (9.5 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,689.9 mt.
    \nn\ Minor Nearshore Rockfish south. The OFL for the Minor Nearshore 
Rockfish complex south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 1,329 mt is the sum 
of the OFL contributions for the component species within the complex. 
The ABC for the southern Minor Nearshore Rockfish complex is based on a 
sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks (i.e., blue/deacon rockfish 
north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat., brown rockfish, China rockfish, and 
copper rockfish) and a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all 
others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting ABC of 1,166 mt is the summed 
contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL of 1,163 mt 
is the sum of the contributing ABCs of healthy assessed stocks and 
unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contribution for blue/deacon rockfish 
north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. and China rockfish where the 40-10 
adjustment was applied to the ABC contributions for these two stocks 
because they are in the precautionary zone. 4.1 mt is deducted from the 
ACL to accommodate the incidental open access fishery (1.4 mt) and 
research catch (2.7 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,158.9 mt. Blue/
deacon rockfish south of 42[deg] N. lat. has a stock-specific HG set 
equal to the 40-10-adjusted ACL for the portion of the stock north of 
34[deg]27[min] N lat. (243.7 mt) plus the ABC contribution for the 
unassessed portion of the stock south of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. (60.8 
mt). The California (i.e. south of 42[deg] N. lat.) blue/deacon rockfish 
HG is 304.5 mt.
    \oo\ Minor Shelf Rockfish south. The OFL for the Minor Shelf 
Rockfish complex south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 1,917 mt is the sum 
of the OFL contributions for the component species within the complex. 
The ABC for the southern Minor Shelf Rockfish complex is based on a 
sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks (greenspotted and greenstriped 
rockfish) and a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) 
with a P* of 0.45. The resulting ABC of 1,624 mt is the summed 
contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL of 1,623 mt 
is the sum of contributing ABCs of healthy assessed stocks and 
unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contribution of greenspotted rockfish in 
California where the 40-10 adjustment was applied to the ABC 
contribution for this stock because it is in the precautionary zone. 
47.2 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open 
access fishery (8.6 mt), EFP catch (30 mt), and research catch (8.6 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,575.8 mt.
    \pp\ Minor Slope Rockfish south. The OFL of 827 mt is the sum of the 
OFL contributions for the component species within the complex. The ABC 
for the southern Minor Slope Rockfish complex is based on a sigma value 
of 0.39 for aurora rockfish, a sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks 
(blackgill rockfish, rougheye rockfish, blackspotted rockfish, and 
sharpchin rockfish) and a sigma value of

[[Page 161]]

1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. A unique 
sigma of 0.39 was calculated for aurora rockfish because the variance in 
estimated biomass was greater than the 0.36 used as a proxy for other 
category 1 stocks. The resulting ABC of 718 mt is the summed 
contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL of 707 mt is 
the sum of the contributing ABCs of healthy assessed stocks and 
unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contribution of blackgill rockfish where 
the 40-10 adjustment was applied to the ABC contribution for this stock 
because it is in the precautionary zone. 20.2 mt is deducted from the 
ACL to accommodate the incidental open access fishery (17.2 mt), EFP 
catch (1 mt), and research catch (2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 
686.8 mt. Blackgill rockfish has a stock-specific HG for the entire 
groundfish fishery south of 40[deg]10' N lat. set equal to the species' 
contribution to the 40-10-adjusted ACL. Harvest of blackgill rockfish in 
all groundfish fisheries counts against this HG of 120.2 mt. Nontrawl 
fisheries are subject to a blackgill rockfish HG of 44.5 mt.
    \qq\ Other Flatfish. The Other Flatfish complex is comprised of 
flatfish species managed in the PCGFMP that are not managed with stock-
specific OFLs/ABCs/ACLs. Most of the species in the Other Flatfish 
complex are unassessed and include: butter sole, curlfin sole, flathead 
sole, Pacific sanddab, rock sole, sand sole, and rex sole. The Other 
Flatfish OFL of 11,165 mt is based on the sum of the OFL contributions 
of the component stocks. The ABC of 8,510 mt is based on a sigma value 
of 0.72 for a category 2 stock (rex sole) and a sigma value of 1.44 for 
category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.40. The ACL is set equal 
to the ABC. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because all of the assessed 
stocks (i.e., Pacific sanddabs and rex sole) were above their target 
biomass of B25%. 204 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
Tribal fishery (60 mt), the incidental open access fishery (125 mt), and 
research catch (19 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 8,306 mt.
    \rr\ Other Fish. The Other Fish complex is comprised of kelp 
greenling coastwide, cabezon off Washington, and leopard shark 
coastwide. The 2015 assessment for the kelp greenling stock off of 
Oregon projected an estimated depletion of 80 percent in 2015. All other 
stocks are unassessed. The OFL of 537 mt is the sum of the OFL 
contributions for kelp greenling coastwide, cabezon off Washington, and 
leopard shark coastwide. The ABC for the Other Fish complex is based on 
a sigma value of 0.44 for kelp greenling off Oregon and a sigma value of 
1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. A unique 
sigma of 0.44 was calculated for kelp greenling off Oregon because the 
variance in estimated spawning biomass was greater than the 0.36 sigma 
used as a proxy for other category 1 stocks. The resulting ABC of 474 mt 
is the summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The 
ACL is set equal to the ABC because all of the assessed stocks (kelp 
greenling off Oregon) were above their target biomass of B40%. There are 
no deductions from the ACL so the fishery HG is equal to the ACL of 474 
mt.

    \a\ Annual catch limits (ACLs), annual catch targets (ACTs) and 
harvest guidelines (HGs) are specified as total catch values.
    \b\ Fishery harvest guidelines means the harvest guideline or quota 
after subtracting Pacific Coast treaty Indian tribes allocations and 
projected catch, projected research catch, deductions for fishing 
mortality in non-groundfish fisheries, and deductions for EFPs from the 
ACL or ACT.
    \c\ Bocaccio. A stock assessment was conducted in 2015 for the 
bocaccio stock between the U.S.-Mexico border and Cape Blanco. The stock 
is managed with stock-specific harvest specifications south of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and within the Minor Shelf Rockfish complex north 
of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. A historical catch distribution of 
approximately 7.4 percent was used to apportion the assessed stock to 
the area north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The bocaccio stock was 
estimated to be at 36.8 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The OFL 
of 2,013 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an 
FMSY proxy of F50. The ABC of 1,924 mt is 
a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) 
because it is a category 1 stock. The 741 mt ACL is based on the current 
rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 2022 and an SPR harvest 
rate of 77.7 percent. 15.4 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate 
the incidental open access fishery (0.8 mt), EFP catch (10 mt) and 
research catch (4.6 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 725.6 mt. The 
California recreational fishery has an HG of 305.5 mt.
    \d\ Cowcod. A stock assessment for the Conception Area was conducted 
in 2013 and the stock was estimated to be at 33.9 percent of its 
unfished biomass in 2013. The Conception Area OFL of 59 mt is projected 
in the 2013 rebuilding analysis using an FMSY proxy of 
F50. The OFL contribution of 12 mt for the unassessed 
portion of the stock in the Monterey area is based on depletion-based 
stock reduction analysis. The OFLs for the Monterey and Conception areas 
were summed to derive the south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. OFL of 71 mt. 
The ABC for the area south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. is 64 mt. The 
assessed portion of the stock in the Conception Area is considered 
category 2, with a Conception area contribution to the ABC of 54 mt, 
which is an 8.7 percent reduction from the Conception area OFL ([sigma] 
= 0.72 / P* = 0.45). The unassessed portion of the stock in the Monterey 
area is considered a category 3 stock, with a contribution to the ABC of 
10 mt, which is a 16.6 percent reduction from the Monterey area OFL 
([sigma] = 1.44 / P* = 0.45). A single ACL of 10 mt is being set for 
both areas combined. The ACL of 10 mt is based on the rebuilding plan 
with a target year to rebuild of 2020 and an SPR harvest rate of 82.7 
percent, which is equivalent to an exploitation rate (catch over age 11+ 
biomass) of 0.007. 2 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
incidental open access fishery (less than 0.1 mt), EFP fishing (less 
than 0.1 mt) and research activity (2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 
8 mt. Any additional mortality in research activities will be deducted 
from the ACL. A single ACT of 4 mt is being set for both areas combined.
    \e\ Darkblotched rockfish. A 2015 stock assessment estimated the 
stock to be at 39 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The OFL of 
683 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an 
FMSY proxy of F50. The ABC of 653 mt is a 
4.4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) because 
it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC, as the stock 
is projected to be above its target biomass of B40 in 
2017. 77.3 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery 
(0.2 mt), the incidental open access fishery (24.5 mt), EFP catch (0.1 
mt), research catch (2.5 mt) and an additional deduction for unforeseen 
catch events (50 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 575.8 mt.
    \f\ Pacific ocean perch. A stock assessment was conducted in 2011 
and the stock was estimated to be at 19.1 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2011. The OFL of 984 mt for the area north of 40[deg]10[min] 
N. lat. is based on an updated catch-only projection of the 2011 
rebuilding analysis using an F50 FMSY 
proxy. The ABC of 941 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL 
([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) as it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is 
based on the current rebuilding plan with a target year to rebuild of 
2051 and a constant catch amount of 281 mt in 2017 and 2018, followed in 
2019 and beyond by ACLs based on an SPR harvest rate of 86.4 percent. 
49.4 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (9.2

biomass of B40. 59.4 mt is deducted from the ACL to 
accommodate the Tribal fishery (50 mt), the incidental open access 
fishery (1.2 mt), EFP catch (1 mt) and research catch (7.2 mt) resulting 
in a fishery HG of 1,466.6 mt. Recreational HGs are: 50 mt (Washington); 
75 mt (Oregon); and 135 mt (California).
    \r\ Chilipepper. A coastwide update assessment of the chilipepper 
stock was conducted in 2015 and estimated to be at 64 percent of its 
unfished biomass in 2015. Chilipepper are managed with stock-specific 
harvest specifications south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and within the 
Minor Shelf Rockfish complex north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. Projected 
OFLs are stratified north and south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. based on 
the average historical assessed area catch, which is 93 percent for the 
area south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat.

[[Page 169]]

and 7 percent for the area north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The OFL of 
2,623 mt for the area south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. is projected in 
the 2015 assessment using an FMSY proxy of 
F50. The ABC of 2,507 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction 
from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) because it is a category 1 
stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the stock is above its 
target biomass of B40. 45.9 mt is deducted from the 
ACL to accommodate the incidental open access fishery (5 mt), EFP 
fishing (30 mt), and research catch (10.9 mt), resulting in a fishery HG 
of 2,461.1 mt.
    \s\ Dover sole. A 2011 Dover sole assessment estimated the stock to 
be at 83.7 percent of its unfished biomass in 2011. The OFL of 90,282 mt 
is based on an updated catch-only projection from the 2011 stock 
assessment assuming actual catches since 2011 and using an 
FMSY proxy of F30. The ABC of 86,310 mt is 
a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) 
because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL could be set equal to the ABC 
because the stock is above its target biomass of B25. 
However, the ACL of 50,000 mt is set at a level below the ABC and higher 
than the maximum historical landed catch. 1,593.7 mt is deducted from 
the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (1,497 mt), the incidental 
open access fishery (54.8 mt), and research catch (41.9 mt), resulting 
in a fishery HG of 48,406.3 mt.

    \u\ Lingcod north. The 2009 lingcod assessment modeled two 
populations north and south of the California-Oregon border (42[deg] N. 
lat.). Both populations were healthy with stock depletion estimated at 
62 and 74 percent for the north and south, respectively in 2009.The OFL 
is based on an updated catch-only projection from the 2009 assessment 
assuming actual catches since 2009 and using an FMSY proxy of 
F45. The OFL is apportioned by adding 48% of the OFL 
from California, resulting in an OFL of 3,310 mt for the area north of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The ABC of 3,110 mt is based on a 4.4 percent 
reduction ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) from the OFL contribution for the 
area north of 42[deg] N. lat. because it is a category 1 stock, and an 
8.7 percent reduction ([sigma] = 0.72 / P* = 0.45) from the OFL 
contribution for the area between 42[deg] N. lat. and 40[deg]10[min] N. 
lat. because it is a category 2 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC 
because the stock is above its target biomass of B40. 
278.2 mt is deducted from the ACL for the Tribal fishery (250 mt), the 
incidental open access fishery (16 mt), EFP catch (0.5 mt) and research 
catch (11.7 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 2,831.8 mt.
    \v\ Lingcod south. The 2009 lingcod assessment modeled two 
populations north and south of the California-Oregon border (42[deg] N. 
lat.). Both populations were healthy with stock depletion estimated at 
62 and 74 percent for the north and south, respectively in 2009. The OFL 
is based on an updated catch-only projection of the 2009 stock 
assessment assuming actual catches since 2009 and using an 
FMSY proxy of F45. The OFL is apportioned 
by subtracting 48% of the California OFL, resulting in an OFL of 1,373 
mt for the area south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The ABC of 1,144 mt is 
based on a 16.7 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.72 / P* = 
0.40) because it is a category 2 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC 
because the stock is above its target biomass of B40. 
9 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open access 
fishery (6.9 mt), EFP fishing (1 mt), and research catch (1.1 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,135 mt.

which estimated the stock to be at 31 percent of its unfished biomass in 
2015. The OFL of 3,152 mt is projected in the 2015 assessment using an 
FMSY proxy of F30. The ABC of 3,013 mt is 
a 4.4 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) 
because it is a category 1 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC 
because the stock is above its target biomass of B25. 
240.9 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (220 
mt), the incidental open access fishery (3.2 mt) and research catch 
(17.7 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 2,772.1 mt.
    \bb\ Sablefish north. A coastwide sablefish stock assessment update 
was conducted in 2015. The coastwide sablefish biomass was estimated to 
be at 33 percent of its unfished biomass in 2015. The coastwide OFL of 
8,329 mt is projected in the 2015 stock assessment using an 
FMSY proxy of F45. The ABC of 7,604 mt is 
an 8.7 percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.40). The 
40-10 adjustment is applied to the ABC to derive a coastwide ACL value 
because the stock is in the precautionary zone. This coastwide ACL value 
is not specified in regulations. The coastwide ACL value is apportioned 
north and south of 36[deg] N. lat., using the 2003-2014 average 
estimated swept area biomass from the NMFS NWFSC trawl survey, with 73.8 
percent apportioned north of 36[deg] N. lat. and 26.2 percent 
apportioned south of 36[deg] N. lat. The northern ACL is 5,475 mt and is 
reduced by 548 mt for the Tribal allocation (10 percent of the ACL north 
of 36[deg] N. lat.). The 548 mt Tribal allocation is reduced by 1.5 
percent to account for discard mortality. Detailed sablefish allocations 
are shown in Table 2c.
    \cc\ Sablefish south. The ACL for the area south of 36[deg] N. lat. 
is 1,944 mt (26.2 percent of the calculated coastwide ACL value). 5 mt

acrdedseescess fishery (2 mt) and research catch (3 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 1,939 mt.
    \dd\ Shortbelly rockfish. A non-quantitative shortbelly rockfish 
assessment was conducted in 2007. The spawning stock biomass of 
shortbelly rockfish was estimated to be 67 percent of its unfished 
biomass in 2005. The OFL of 6,950 mt is based on the estimated MSY in 
the 2007 stock assessment. The ABC of 5,789 mt is a 16.7 percent 
reduction of the OFL ([sigma] = 0.72 / P* = 0.40) because it is a 
category 2 stock. The 500 mt ACL is set to accommodate incidental catch 
when fishing for co-occurring healthy stocks and in recognition of the 
stock's importance as a forage species in the California Current 
ecosystem. 10.9 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
incidental open access fishery (8.9 mt) and research catch (2 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 489.1 mt.
    \ee\ Shortspine thornyhead. A 2013 coastwide shortspine thornyhead 
stock assessment estimated the stock to be at 74.2 percent of its 
unfished biomass in 2013. A coastwide OFL of 3,116 mt is projected in 
the 2013 stock assessment using an F50 
FMSY proxy. The coastwide ABC of 2,596 mt is a 16.7 percent 
reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.72 / P* = 0.40) because it is a 
category 2 stock. For the portion of the stock that is north of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat., the ACL is 1,698 mt. The northern ACL is 65.4 
percent of the coastwide ABC based on the average swept-area biomass 
estimates (2003-2012) from the NMFS NWFSC trawl survey. 59 mt is 
deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (50 mt), the 
incidental open access fishery (1.8 mt), and research catch (7.2 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,639 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 898 mt. The southern ACL is 34.6 
percent of the coastwide ABC based on the average swept-area biomass 
estimates (2003-2012) from the NMFS NWFSC trawl survey. 42.3 mt is 
deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open access fishery 
(41.3 mt) and research catch (1 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 855.7 
mt for the area south of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat.
    \ff\ Spiny dogfish. A coastwide spiny dogfish stock assessment was 
conducted in 2011. The coastwide spiny dogfish biomass was estimated to 
be at 63 percent of its unfished biomass in 2011. The coastwide OFL of 
2,500 mt is derived from the 2011 assessment using an FMSY 
proxy of F50. The coastwide ABC of 2,083 mt is a 16.7 
percent reduction from the OFL ([sigma] = 0.72 / P* = 0.40) because it 
is a category 2 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the stock 
is above its target biomass of B40. 338 mt is 
deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (275 mt), the 
incidental open access fishery (49.5 mt), EFP catch (1 mt), and research 
catch (12.5 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,745 mt.

    \gg\ Splitnose rockfish. A coastwide splitnose rockfish assessment 
was conducted in 2009 that estimated the stock to be at 66 percent of 
its unfished biomass in 2009. Splitnose rockfish in the north is managed 
in the Minor Slope Rockfish complex and with stock-specific harvest 
specifications south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. The coastwide OFL is 
projected in the 2009 assessment using an FMSY proxy of 
F50. The coastwide OFL is apportioned north and south 
of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. based on the average 1916-2008 assessed area 
catch resulting in 64.2 percent of the coastwide OFL apportioned south 
of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., and 35.8 percent apportioned for the 
contribution of splitnose rockfish to the northern Minor Slope Rockfish 
complex. The southern OFL of 1,842 mt results from the apportionment 
described above. The southern ABC of 1,761 mt is a 4.4 percent reduction 
from the southern OFL ([sigma] = 0.36 / P* = 0.45) because it is a 
category 1 stock. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because the stock is

Nearshore Rockfish north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 119 mt is the sum 
of the OFL contributions for the component species managed in the 
complex. The ABCs for the minor rockfish complexes are based on a sigma 
value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks (blue/deacon rockfish in California, 
brown rockfish, China rockfish, and copper rockfish) and a sigma value 
of 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. The 
resulting ABC of 105 mt is the summed contribution of the ABCs for the 
component species. The ACL of 105 mt is the sum of contributing ABCs. 
1.8 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (1.5 
mt), and the incidental open access fishery (0.3 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 103.2 mt. Between 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. and 42[deg] N. 
lat. the Minor Nearshore Rockfish complex north has a harvest guideline 
of 40.2 mt. Blue/deacon rockfish south of 42[deg] N. lat. has a species-
specific HG, described in footnote pp.
    ll Minor Shelf Rockfish north. The OFL for Minor Shelf 
Rockfish north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 2,302 mt is the sum of the 
OFL contributions for the component species within the complex. The ABCs 
for the minor rockfish complexes are based on a sigma value of 0.36 for 
a category 1 stock (chilipepper), a sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 
stocks (greenspotted rockfish between 40[deg]10[min] and 42[deg] N. lat. 
and greenstriped rockfish) and a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 
stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting ABC of 2,048 mt is 
the summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL 
of 2,047 mt is the sum of contributing ABCs of healthy assessed stocks 
and unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contribution of greenspotted 
rockfish in California where the 40-10 adjustment was applied to the ABC 
contribution for this stock because it is in the precautionary zone. 
83.8 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (30 
mt), the incidental open access fishery (26 mt), EFP catch (3 mt), and 
research catch (24.8 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 1,963.2 mt.
    mm Minor Slope Rockfish north. The OFL for Minor Slope 
Rockfish north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 1,896 mt is the sum of the 
OFL contributions for the component species within the complex. The ABCs 
for the Minor Slope Rockfish complexes are based on a sigma value of 
0.39 for aurora rockfish, a sigma value of 0.36 for the other category 1 
stock

[[Page 172]]

(splitnose rockfish), a sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks 
(rougheye rockfish, blackspotted rockfish, and sharpchin rockfish), and 
a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 
0.45. A unique sigma of 0.39 was calculated for aurora rockfish because 
the variance in estimated spawning biomass was greater than the 0.36 
used as a proxy for other category 1 stocks. The resulting ABC of 1,754 
mt is the summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The 
ACL is set equal to the ABC because all the assessed component stocks 
(rougheye rockfish, blackspotted rockfish, sharpchin rockfish, and 
splitnose rockfish) are above the target biomass of 
B40. 65.1 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate 
the Tribal fishery (36 mt), the incidental open access fishery (18.6 
mt), EFP catch (1 mt), and research catch (9.5 mt), resulting in a 
fishery HG of 1,688.9 mt.
    nn Minor Nearshore Rockfish south. The OFL for the Minor 
Nearshore Rockfish complex south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 1,344 mt 
is the sum of the OFL contributions for the component species within the 
complex. The ABC for the southern Minor Nearshore Rockfish complex is 
based on a sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks (blue/deacon 
rockfish north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat., brown rockfish, China 
rockfish, and copper rockfish) and a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 
stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting ABC of 1,180 mt is 
the summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL 
of 1,179 mt is the sum of the contributing ABCs of healthy assessed 
stocks and unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contribution for China 
rockfish where the 40-10 adjustment was applied to the ABC contribution 
for this stock because it is in the precautionary zone. 4.1 mt is 
deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open access fishery 
(1.4 mt) and research catch (2.7 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 
1,174.9 mt. Blue/deacon rockfish south of 42[deg] N. lat. has a species-
specific HG set equal to the 40-10-adjusted ACL for the portion of the 
stock north of 34[deg]27[min] N. lat. (250.3 mt) plus the ABC 
contribution for the unassessed portion of the stock south of 
34[deg]27[min] N. lat. (60.8 mt). The California (i.e., south of 42[deg] 
N. lat.) blue/deacon rockfish HG is 311.1 mt.
    oo Minor Shelf Rockfish south. The OFL for the Minor 
Shelf Rockfish complex south of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. of 1,918 mt is 
the sum of the OFL contributions for the component species within the 
complex. The ABC for the southern Minor Shelf Rockfish complex is based 
on a sigma value of 0.72 for category 2 stocks (i.e., greenspotted and 
greenstriped rockfish) and a sigma value of 1.44 for category 3 stocks 
(all others) with a P* of 0.45. The resulting ABC of 1,625 mt is the 
summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL of 
1,624 mt is the sum of contributing ABCs of healthy assessed stocks and 
unassessed stocks, plus the ACL contribution of greenspotted rockfish in 
California where the 40-10 adjustment was applied to the ABC 
contribution for this stock because it is in the precautionary zone. 
47.2 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the incidental open 
access fishery (8.6 mt), EFP catch (30 mt), and research catch (8.6 mt), 
resulting in a fishery HG of 1,576.8 mt.
    pp Minor Slope Rockfish south. The OFL of 829 mt is the 
sum of the OFL contributions for the component species within the 
complex. The ABC for the southern Minor Slope Rockfish complex is based 
on a sigma value of 0.39 for aurora rockfish, a sigma value of 0.72 for 
category 2 stocks (blackgill rockfish, rougheye rockfish, blackspotted 
rockfish, and sharpchin rockfish) and a sigma value of 1.44 for category 
3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. A unique sigma of 0.39 was 
calculated for aurora rockfish because the variance in estimated biomass 
was greater than the 0.36 used as a proxy for other category 1 stocks. 
The resulting ABC of 719 mt is the summed contribution of the ABCs for 
the component species. The ACL of 709 mt is the sum of the contributing 
ABCs of healthy assessed stocks and unassessed stocks, plus the ACL 
contribution of blackgill rockfish where the 40-10 adjustment was 
applied to the ABC contribution for this stock because it is in the 
precautionary zone. 20.2 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the 
incidental open access fishery (17.2 mt), EFP catch (1 mt), and research 
catch (2 mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 688.8 mt. Blackgill rockfish 
has a stock-specific HG for the entire groundfish fishery south of 
40[deg]10[min] N lat. set equal to the species' contribution to the 40-
10-adjusted ACL. Harvest of blackgill rockfish in all groundfish 
fisheries counts against this HG of 122.4 mt. Nontrawl fisheries are 
subject to a blackgill rockfish HG of 45.3 mt.
    qq Other Flatfish. The Other Flatfish complex is 
comprised of flatfish species managed in the PCGFMP that are not managed 
with species-specific OFLs/ABCs/ACLs. Most of the species in the Other 
Flatfish complex are unassessed and include: Butter sole, curlfin sole, 
flathead sole, Pacific sanddab, rock sole, sand sole, and rex sole. The 
Other Flatfish OFL of 9,690 mt is based on the sum of the OFL 
contributions of the component stocks. The ABC of 7,281 mt is based on a 
sigma value of 0.72 for a category 2 stock (rex sole) and a sigma value 
of 1.44 for category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.40. The ACL is 
set equal to the ABC. The ACL is set equal to the ABC because all of the 
assessed stocks (i.e., Pacific sanddabs and rex sole) were above their 
target biomass of B25.

[[Page 173]]

204 mt is deducted from the ACL to accommodate the Tribal fishery (60 
mt), the incidental open access fishery 125 mt), and research catch (19 
mt), resulting in a fishery HG of 7,077 mt.
    rr Other Fish. The Other Fish complex is comprised of 
kelp greenling coastwide, cabezon off Washington, and leopard shark 
coastwide. The 2015 assessment for the kelp greenling stock off of 
Oregon projected an estimated depletion of 80 percent. All other stocks 
are unassessed. The OFL of 501 mt is the sum of the OFL contributions 
for kelp greenling coastwide, cabezon off Washington, and leopard shark 
coastwide. The ABC for the Other Fish complex is based on a sigma value 
of 0.44 for kelp greenling off Oregon and a sigma value of 1.44 for 
category 3 stocks (all others) with a P* of 0.45. A unique sigma of 0.44 
was calculated for kelp greenling off Oregon because the variance in 
estimated spawning biomass was greater than the 0.36 sigma used as a 
proxy for other category 1 stocks. The resulting ABC of 441 mt is the 
summed contribution of the ABCs for the component species. The ACL is 
set equal to the ABC because all of the assessed stocks (kelp greenling 
off Oregon) were above their target biomass of B40. 
There are no deductions from the ACL so the fishery HG is equal to the 
ACL of 441 mt.

[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 applies to 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

[[Page 180]]

activities permitted by the trawl rationalization program.

[75 FR 78383, Dec. 15, 2010, as amended at 80 FR 77271, Dec. 14, 2015]



Sec. 660.111  Trawl fishery--definitions.

    These definitions are specific to the limited entry trawl fisheries 
covered in this subpart. General groundfish definitions are found at 
Sec. 660.11, subpart C.
    Accumulation limits mean the maximum extent of permissible 
ownership, control or use of a privilege within the trawl 
rationalization program, and include the following:
    (1) Shorebased IFQ Program. (i) Control limits means the maximum 
amount of QS or IBQ that a person may own or control, as described at 
Sec. 660.140(d)(4).
    (ii) Vessel limits means the maximum amount of QP a vessel can hold, 
acquire, and/or use during a calendar year, and specify the maximum 
amount of QP that may be registered to a single vessel during the year 
(QP Vessel Limit) and, for some species, the maximum amount of unused QP 
registered to a vessel account at any one time (Unused QP Vessel Limit), 
as described at Sec. 660.140(e)(4). Compliance with the QP vessel limit 
(annual limit) is calculated as all QPs transferred in minus all QPs 
transferred out of the vessel account.
    (2) MS Coop Program. (i) MS permit usage limit means the maximum 
amount of the annual mothership sector Pacific whiting allocation that a 
person owning an MS permit may cumulatively process, no more than 45 
percent, as described at Sec. 660.150(f)(3)(i).

history assignment that a person may own, no more than 20 percent of the 
MS sector's allocation of Pacific whiting, as described at Sec. 
660.150(g)(3)(i).
    (iii) Catcher vessel usage limit means the maximum amount of the 
annual mothership sector Pacific whiting allocation that a vessel may 
catch, no more than 30 percent, as described at Sec. 660.150(g)(3)(ii).

whiting IFQ trips.
    Pacific whiting IFQ trip means a trip in which a vessel uses 
midwater groundfish trawl gear during the dates of the Pacific whiting 
primary season to target Pacific whiting, and Pacific whiting 
constitutes 50 percent or more of the catch by weight at landing as 
reported on the state landing receipt. Vessels on Pacific whiting IFQ 
trips must have a valid declaration for limited entry midwater trawl, 
Pacific whiting shorebased IFQ.

Sec. 660.115  Trawl fishery--cost recovery program.

    (a) General. The cost recovery program collects mandatory fees of up 
to three percent of the ex-vessel value of fish harvested by sector 
under the trawl rationalization program in accordance with the Magnuson-
Stevens Act. NMFS collects the fees to recover the actual costs directly 
related to the management, data collection, and enforcement of the trawl 
rationalization program. In addition to the requirements of this 
section, the following groundfish regulations also apply:
    (1) Regulations set out in the following sections of subpart C: 
Sec. 660.11 Definitions and Sec. 660.25 Permits.
    (2) Regulations set out in the following sections of subpart D: 
Sec. 660.111 Definitions, Sec. 660.112 Trawl fishery prohibitions, 
Sec. 660.113 Trawl fishery recordkeeping and reporting, Sec. 660.140 
Shorebased IFQ Program, Sec. 660.150 MS Coop Program, and Sec. 660.160 
C/P Coop Program.
    (b) Fee percentage by sector. The annual fee percentage by sector is 
calculated as described in paragraph (b)(1) of this section. NMFS will 
establish the fee percentage each year and will announce the fee 
percentage by sector in accordance with paragraph (b)(2) of this 
section. The fee percentage must not exceed three percent of the ex-
vessel value of fish harvested by sector under the trawl rationalization 
program pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Act at 16 U.S.C. 1854(d)(2)(B).
    (1) Calculation. In the last quarter of each calendar year, NMFS 
will calculate the fee percentage by sector based on information from 
the previous fiscal year (defined at Sec. 660.11). The fee percentage 
will be rounded to the nearest 0.1 percent and must not exceed three 
percent for each sector (Shorebased IFQ Program, MS Coop Program, and C/
P Coop Program). NMFS will use the following equation to annually 
determine the fee percentage by sector: Fee percentage = the lower of 3% 
or (DPC/V) x 100, where:
    (i) ``DPC,'' or direct program costs, are the actual incremental 
costs for the previous fiscal year directly related to the management, 
data collection, and enforcement of each sector (Shorebased IFQ Program, 
MS Coop Program, and C/P Coop Program). Actual incremental costs means 
those net costs that would not have been incurred but for the 
implementation of the trawl rationalization program, including 
additional costs for new requirements of the program and reduced trawl 
sector related costs resulting from efficiencies as a result of the 
program. If the amount of fees collected by NMFS is greater or less than 
the actual net incremental costs incurred, the DPC will be adjusted 
accordingly for calculation of the fee percentage in the following year.
    (ii) ``V'' is, for each applicable sector, the total ex-vessel 
value, as defined at Sec. 660.111, from the previous calendar year 
attributable to that sector of the trawl rationalization program 
(Shorebased IFQ Program, MS Coop Program, and C/P Coop Program).
    (2) Notification of the fee percentage and MS average pricing. 
During the last quarter of each calendar year, NMFS will announce the 
following through a Federal Register notice:
    (i) The fee percentage to be applied by fish buyers and fish 
sellers, for each sector, that will be in effect for the upcoming 
calendar year, and
    (ii) The average MS price per pound from the previous fiscal year as 
reported for the MS Coop Program to be used in the C/P Coop Program to 
calculate the fee amount for the upcoming calendar year as specified in 
paragraph (c) of this section.
    (iii) Information on how to pay in to the Fund subaccount as 
specified at paragraph (d) of this section.
    (c) Fee amount. The fee amount is the ex-vessel value, as defined at 
Sec. 660.111, for each sector multiplied by the fee percentage for that 
sector as announced in accordance with paragraph (b)(2) of this section.
    (d) Fee payment and collection--(1) Fee payment and collection in 
the Shorebased IFQ Program and MS Coop Program. Payment of fees at the 
fee percentage rate announced in paragraph (b)(2) of this section begins 
January 1 and continues without interruption through December 31 each 
year.
    (i) Between the fish seller and fish buyer. Except as described 
below, the full fee is due and payable at the time of fish landing/
delivery. Each fish

[[Page 196]]

buyer must collect the fee at the time of fish landing/delivery by 
deducting the fee from the ex-vessel value before paying the net ex-
vessel value to the fish seller. Each fish seller must pay the fee at 
the time of fish landing/delivery by receiving from the fish buyer the 
net ex-vessel value, as defined at Sec. 660.111.
    (A) In the event of any post-delivery payment for fish, the fish 
seller must pay, and the fish buyer must collect, at the time the amount 
of such post-landing/delivery payment, the fee that would otherwise have 
been due and payable at the time of initial fish landing/delivery.
    (B) When the fish buyer and fish seller are the same entity, that 
entity must comply with the requirements for both the fish seller and 
the fish buyer as specified in this section.
    (ii) Between the fish buyer and NMFS--(A) Deposit accounts. Each 
fish buyer shall maintain a segregated account at a federally insured 
financial institution for the sole purpose of depositing collected fee 
revenue from the cost recovery program specified in this section and 
disbursing the deposit principal directly to NMFS in accordance with 
paragraph (d)(1)(ii)(C) of this section.
    (B) Fee collection deposits. Each fish buyer, no less frequently 
than at the end of each month, shall deposit, in the deposit account 
established under paragraph (d)(1)(ii)(A) of this section, all fees 
collected, not previously deposited, that the fish buyer collects 
through a date not more than two calendar days before the date of 
deposit. The deposit principal may not be pledged, assigned, or used for 
any purpose other than aggregating collected fee revenue for 
disbursement to the Fund in accordance with paragraph (d)(1)(ii)(C) of 
this section. The fish buyer is entitled, at any time, to withdraw 
deposit interest, if any, but never deposit principal, from the deposit 
account for the fish buyer's own use and purposes.
    (C) Deposit principal disbursement. Not later than the 14th calendar 
day after the last calendar day of each month, or more frequently if the 
amount in the account exceeds the account limit for insurance purposes, 
the fish buyer shall disburse to NMFS the full deposit principal then in 
the deposit account. The fish buyer shall disburse deposit principal by 
electronic payment to the Fund subaccount to which the deposit principal 
relates. NMFS will announce information about how to make an electronic 
payment to the Fund subaccount in the notification on fee percentage 
specified in paragraph (b)(2) of this section. Each disbursement must be 
accompanied by a cost recovery form provided by NMFS. Recordkeeping and 
reporting requirements are specified in paragraph (d)(4) of this section 
and at Sec. 660.113(b)(5) for the Shorebased IFQ Program and Sec. 
660.113(c)(5) for the MS Coop Program. The cost recovery form will be 
available on the pay.gov Web site.
    (2) Fee payment and collection in the C/P Coop Program. Payment of 
fees for the calendar year at the fee percentage rate announced in 
paragraph (b)(2) of this section is due in the last quarter of the 
calendar year and no later than December 31 each year. The fish buyer is 
responsible for fee payment to NMFS. The fish seller and the fish buyer, 
as defined at Sec. 660.111, are considered the same entity in the C/P 
Coop Program. The fish buyer shall disburse to NMFS the full fee amount 
for the calendar year by electronic payment to the Fund subaccount. NMFS 
will announce information about how to make an electronic payment to the 
Fund subaccount in the notification on fee percentage specified in 
paragraph (b)(2) of this section. Each disbursement must be accompanied 
by a cost recovery form provided by NMFS. Recordkeeping and reporting 
requirements are specified in paragraph (d)(4) of this section and at 
Sec. 660.113(d)(5) for the C/P Coop Program. The cost recovery form 
will be available on the pay.gov Web site.
    (3) Failure to pay or collect--(i) Responsibility to notify NMFS. 
(A) If a fish buyer fails to collect the fee in the amount and manner 
required by this section, the fish seller shall then advise the fish 
buyer of the fish seller's fee payment obligation and of the fish 
buyer's cost recovery fee collection obligation. If the fish buyer still 
fails to properly collect the fee, the fish seller, within the next 7 
calendar days, shall

[[Page 197]]

forward the fee to NMFS. The fish seller at the same time shall also 
advise NMFS in writing at the address in paragraph (d)(3)(i)(C) of this 
section of the full particulars, including:
    (1) The fish buyer's and fish seller's name, address, and telephone 
number,
    (2) The name of the fishing vessel from which the fish seller made 
fish delivery and the date of doing so,
    (3) The weight and ex-vessel value of each species of fish that the 
fish seller delivered, and
    (4) The fish buyer's reason, if known, for failing or refusing to 
collect the fee in accordance with this subpart;
    (B) Notifications must be mailed or faxed to: National Marine 
Fisheries Service, West Coast Region, Office of Management and 
Information, ATTN: Cost Recovery Notification, 7600 Sand Point Way NE., 
Seattle, WA 98115; Fax: 206-526-6426; or delivered to National Marine 
Fisheries Service at the same address.
    (ii) IAD, appeals, and final decision. If NMFS determines the fish 
buyer or other responsible party has not submitted a complete cost 
recovery form and corresponding payment by the due date specified in 
paragraphs (d)(1) and (2) of this section, NMFS will at any time 
thereafter notify the fish buyer or other responsible party in writing 
via an initial administrative determination (IAD) letter.
    (A) IAD. In the IAD, NMFS will state the discrepancy and provide the 
person 30 calendar days to either pay the specified amount due or appeal 
the IAD in writing.
    (B) Appeals. If the fish buyer 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 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. The appeal must be in 
writing, must allege credible facts or circumstances, and must include 
any relevant information or documentation to support the appeal. Appeals 
must be mailed, faxed, or hand-delivered to: National Marine Fisheries 
Service, West Coast Region, Office of Management and Information, ATTN: 
Cost Recovery Appeals, 7600 Sand Point Way NE., Seattle, WA 98115; Fax: 
206-526-6426; or delivered to National Marine Fisheries Service at the 
same address.
    (C) Final decision--(1) Final decision on appeal. For the appeal of 
an IAD, the Regional Administrator shall appoint an appeals 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, acting on behalf of the 
Secretary of Commerce, will issue a written decision on the appeal which 
is the final decision of the Secretary of Commerce.
    (2) Final decision if there is no appeal. If the fish buyer does not 
appeal the IAD within 30 calendar days, NMFS will notify the fish buyer 
or other responsible party in writing via a final decision letter. The 
final decision will be from the Regional Administrator acting on behalf 
of the Secretary of Commerce.
    (3) If the final decision determines that the fish buyer is out of 
compliance, the final decision will require payment within 30 calendar 
days. If such payment is not received within 30 calendar days of 
issuance of the final decision, NMFS will refer the matter to the 
appropriate authorities for purposes of collection. As of the date of 
the final decision if the fish buyer is out of compliance, NMFS will not 
approve a permit renewal for an MS permit or a C/P-endorsed limited 
entry trawl permit until all cost recovery fees due have been paid as 
specified at Sec. 660.25(b)(4)(i)(G); or reissue an IFQ first receiver 
site license until all cost recovery fees due have been paid, as 
specified at Sec. 660.140(f)(4).
    (4) Recordkeeping, reporting, and audits--(i) Recordkeeping. Each 
fish buyer and fish seller shall retain records in accordance with Sec. 
660.113(a). In addition, fish buyers shall retain records in accordance 
with the following paragraphs: Sec. 660.113(b)(5) for the Shorebased 
IFQ Program, Sec. 660.113(c)(5)

[[Page 198]]

for the MS Coop Program, and Sec. 660.113(d)(5) for the C/P Coop 
Program.
    (ii) Reporting, including annual report. Each fish buyer shall 
submit reports in accordance with the following paragraphs: Sec. 
660.113(b)(5) for the Shorebased IFQ Program, Sec. 660.113(c)(5) for 
the MS Coop Program, and Sec. 660.113(d)(5) for the C/P Coop Program. 
The fish buyer must submit a cost recovery form along with fee payment 
to NMFS. By March 31 each year, fish buyers in the MS Coop Program must 
submit an annual report to NMFS containing information from the 
preceding calendar year as specified at Sec. 660.113(c)(5).
    (iii) Audits. NMFS or its agents may audit, in whatever manner NMFS 
determines reasonably necessary for the duly diligent administration of 
the cost recovery program, the financial records of fish buyers and fish 
sellers in order to ensure proper fee payment, collection, deposit, 
disbursement, accounting, recordkeeping, and reporting. Fish buyers and 
fish sellers must respond to any inquiry by NMFS or a NMFS agent within 
20 calendar days of the date of issuance of the inquiry, unless an 
extension is granted by NMFS. Fish buyers and fish sellers shall make 
all relevant records available to NMFS or NMFS' agents at reasonable 
times and places and promptly provide all requested information 
reasonably related to these records. NMFS may employ a third party agent 
to conduct the audits. The NMFS auditor may review and request copies of 
additional data provided by the submitter, including but not limited to, 
previously audited or reviewed financial statements, worksheets, tax 
returns, invoices, receipts, and other original documents substantiating 
the data submitted.

Sec. 660.120  Trawl fishery--crossover provisions.

    The crossover provisions listed at Sec. 660.60(h)(7), apply to 
vessels fishing in the limited entry trawl fishery.

[76 FR 74740, Dec. 1, 2011]



Sec. 660.130   Trawl fishery--management measures.

    (a) General. This section applies to the limited entry trawl 
fishery. Most species taken in the limited entry trawl fishery 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 limited entry trawl 
fishery has gear requirements and harvest limits that differ by the type 
of groundfish 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 applies to vessels participating in the limited entry 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. Chafing gear may not be used to 
create a double-walled codend.
    (2) Mesh size. Groundfish trawl gear, including chafing 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-guage 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) Bottom trawl gear--(i) Large footrope trawl gear. Lines or ropes 
that

[[Page 199]]

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 19 inches (48 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.
    (ii) Small footrope trawl gear. 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.
    (A) 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. The headrope shall be measured 
along the length of the headrope from the outside edge to the opposite 
outside edge. An explanatory diagram of a selective flatfish trawl net 
is provided as Figure 1 of part 660, subpart D.
    (B) [Reserved]
    (iii) Chafing gear restrictions for bottom trawl gear. Chafing gear 
may encircle no more than 50 percent of the net's circumference and may 
be in one or more sections. Chafing gear may be used only on the last 50 
meshes, measured from the terminal (closed) end of the codend. Only the 
front edge (edge closest to the open end of the codend) and sides of 
each section of chafing gear may be attached to the codend; except at 
the corners, the terminal edge (edge closest to the closed end of the 
codend) of each section of chafing gear must not be attached to the net. 
Chafing gear must be attached outside any riblines and restraining 
straps.
    (4) Midwater (pelagic or off-bottom) 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.
    (i) Chafing gear restrictions for midwater trawl gear. Chafing gear 
may cover the bottom and sides of the codend in either one or more 
sections. Only the front edge (edge closest to the open end of the 
codend) and sides of each section of chafing gear may be attached to the 
codend; except at the corners, the terminal edge (edge closest to the 
closed end of the codend) of each section of chafing gear must not be 
attached to the net. Chafing gear is not permitted on the top codend 
panel except as provided in paragraph (b)(4)(ii) of this section.
    (ii) Chafing gear exception for midwater trawl gear. A band of mesh 
(a ``skirt'') may encircle the net under or over transfer cables, 
lifting or splitting straps (chokers), riblines, and restraining straps, 
but must be the same mesh size and coincide knot-to-knot with the net to 
which it is attached and be no wider than 16 meshes.
    (c) Restrictions 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 1 
(South) of this subpart provide trip limits that are specific to 
different

[[Page 200]]

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. The following restrictions are in 
addition to the prohibitions at Sec. 660.112(a)(5).
    (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 groundfish trawl gear. (i) North of 
40[deg]10[min] N. lat., midwater groundfish trawl gear is required for 
Pacific whiting fishery vessels; midwater groundfish trawl gear is 
allowed for vessels targeting non-whiting species during the Pacific 
whiting primary season for the Pacific whiting IFQ fishery. Also see 
restrictions on the use of midwater groundfish trawl gear within the 
RCAs north of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. at Sec. 660.130(e)(4)(i).
    (ii) South of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., midwater groundfish trawl gear 
is prohibited shoreward of the RCA boundaries and permitted seaward of 
the RCA boundaries.
    (4) More than one type of trawl gear on board. The 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[min] 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 groundfish trawl gear and midwater groundfish 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. A vessel may have more than one type 
of midwater groundfish 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 boundaries 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 boundaries.
    (D) If more than one type of bottom groundfish 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 groundfish 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[min] N. 
lat. with any type of small footrope gear onboard the vessel at any time 
during the cumulative limit period, the most restrictive trip

[[Page 201]]

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.)
    (ii) The following restrictions apply to vessels operating south of 
40[deg]10[min] 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 not have small footrope trawl gear and any other type of 
bottom trawl gear onboard simultaneously.
    (B) If a vessel fishes both north and south of 40[deg]10[min] 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. In addition to the requirements at Sec. 660.12(a)(8), 
the States of Washington, Oregon, and California may also require that 
vessels record their landings as sorted on their state landing receipt. 
Sector-specific sorting requirements and exceptions are listed at 
paragraphs (d)(2) and (d)(3) of this section.
    (1) Species and areas--(i) Coastwide. Widow rockfish, canary 
rockfish, darkblotched rockfish, yelloweye rockfish, shortbelly 
rockfish, black rockfish, blue/deacon rockfish, minor nearshore 
rockfish, minor shelf rockfish, minor slope rockfish, shortraker 
rockfish, rougheye/blackspotted rockfish, shortspine and longspine 
thornyhead, Dover sole, arrowtooth flounder, petrale sole, starry 
flounder, English sole, other flatfish, lingcod, sablefish, Pacific cod, 
spiny dogfish, other fish, longnose skate, Pacific whiting, and big

chilipepper, bocaccio, splitnose rockfish, Pacific sanddabs, cowcod, 
bronzespotted rockfish, blackgill rockfish and cabezon.
    (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, with the following exception: Catch from a Pacific whiting IFQ 
trip may be sorted after weighing as specified 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 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 MS Coop and the C/P Coop Programs. 
(i) Processing vessels in the MS and C/P Coop Programs may use a bulk 
weighing scale in compliance with the equipment requirement at Sec. 
660.15(b) 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 catch of-groundfish and non-groundfish species must be 
accurately accounted for and the weight of all catch other than a single 
predominant species deducted from the total catch weight to derive the 
weight of a single predominant species.
    (ii) If sorting occurs on a catcher vessel in the MS Coop Program, 
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 202]]

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. A vessel that is fishing within a GCA listed in 
this paragraph (e) 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 vessels using 
midwater groundfish trawl gear are described at Sec. 660.131(c).
    (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[min] N. lat., and 
bounded on the south by the latitude line at 32[deg]59.50[min] 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) Operating a vessel with groundfish trawl gear onboard within a 
trawl RCA is prohibited, except for the purpose of continuous transit, 
or under the following conditions when the vessel has a valid 
declaration for the allowed fishing:
    (A) Midwater groundfish trawl gear may be used within the RCAs north 
of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat. by vessels targeting Pacific whiting or non-
whiting during the applicable Pacific whiting primary season.
    (B) 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, may have 
groundfish trawl gear onboard.
    (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 allowed to 
fish within the trawl RCA under paragraph (e)(4)(i) of this section.
    (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. 
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 Sec. 660.12, subpart C. EFHCAs apply to vessels using bottom trawl 
gear or to vessels using ``bottom contact gear,''

[[Page 203]]

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

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.
    (6) Bycatch reduction areas (BRAs). Vessels using midwater 
groundfish trawl gear during the applicable Pacific whiting primary 
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.
    (7) Eureka management area midwater trawl trip limits. No more than 
10,000-lb (4,536 kg) of whiting may be taken and retained, possessed, or

Sec. 660.131   Pacific whiting fishery management measures.

    (a) General. This section applies to the MS sector, the C/P sector, 
the Pacific whiting IFQ fishery, and Shorebased IFQ vessels targeting 
Pacific whiting under trip limits outside the Pacific whiting primary 
season.
    (b) Pacific whiting primary seasons and Pacific whiting trip 
limits--(1) Pacific whiting fishery primary seasons. (i) For the Pacific 
whiting IFQ fishery, the

[[Page 204]]

primary season is the period(s) of the large-scale Pacific whiting 
target fishery conducted after the primary season start date.
    (ii) For the C/P sector, the primary season is the period(s) when 
catching and at-sea processing are allowed (after the season closes, at-
sea processing of any fish already on board the processing vessel is 
allowed to continue).
    (iii) For vessels delivering to motherships, the primary season is 
the period(s) when catching and at-sea processing is allowed for the MS 
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 primary season starting dates may be established for the 
C/P Coop Program, the MS Coop Program, and 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] 
and 40[deg]30[min] N. lat.
    (i) Procedures. The Pacific whiting primary seasons north of 
40[deg]30[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.
    (ii) Criteria. The start of a Pacific whiting 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 Pacific whiting fishery, 
the primary 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 primary season for that 
sector is closed by NMFS. The starting dates for the primary seasons are 
as follows:
    (A) Catcher/processor sector--May 15.
    (B) Mothership sector--May 15.
    (C) Shorebased IFQ Program. The start of the Shorebased IFQ Program 
primary whiting season is:
    (1) North of 40[deg]30[min] N. lat.--May 15;
    (2) South of 40[deg]30[min] N. lat.--April 15.
    (3) Pacific whiting trip limits. For Shorebased IFQ Program vessels 
targeting Pacific whiting outside the primary season, the ``per trip'' 
limit for whiting is announced in Table 1 of this subpart. The per-trip 
limit 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 management-area. The per-trip limit for other groundfish species 
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 a vessel on a Pacific whiting IFQ trip 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 season.
    (c) Closed areas. Vessels fishing during the Pacific whiting primary 
seasons shall not target Pacific whiting with midwater groundfish 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[min] N. lat. (approximately 6 nm north of the Klamath River 
mouth), on the west by 124[deg]23[min] W. long. (approximately 12 nm 
from shore), and

[[Page 205]]

on the south by 41[deg]26.80[min] 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[min] N. lat. to 
124[deg]13.30[min] W. long., then southerly along a line of 167 True to 
46[deg]11.10[min] N. lat. and 124[deg]11[min] 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) Bycatch reduction areas (BRAs). Bycatch reduction area closures 
specified at Sec. 660.130(e) may be implemented inseason through 
automatic action when NMFS projects that a Pacific whiting 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 management 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 in the Eureka management area. 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 in the Eureka management area.
    (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).
    (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.

[[Page 206]]

    (5) The vessel's operations are consistent with applicable state and 
Federal law, including those governing disposal of fish waste at sea.
    (h) Reapportionment of Pacific whiting. (1) Upon receipt of written 
notice to the Regional Administrator from the tribe(s) participating in 
the fishery that they do not intend to use a portion of the tribal 
allocation, the Regional Administrator may, no earlier than 7 days 
following notice to other treaty tribes with rights to whiting, 
reapportion any remainder to the other sectors of the trawl fishery as 
soon as practicable after receiving such notice. If no such 
reapportionment has occurred prior to September 15 of the fishing year, 
the Regional Administrator will, based on discussions with 
representatives of the tribes participating in the Pacific whiting 
fishery for that fishing year, consider the tribal harvests to date and 
catch projections for the remainder of the year relative to the tribal 
allocation of Pacific whiting, as specified at Sec. 660.50. That 
portion of the tribal allocation that the Regional Administrator 
determines will not be used by the end of the fishing year may be 
reapportioned to the other sectors of the trawl fishery on September 15 
or as soon as practicable thereafter. Subsequent reapportionments may be 
made based on subsequent determinations by the Regional Administrator 
based on the factors described above in order to ensure full utilization 
of the resource. However, no reapportionments will occur after December 
1 of the fishing year.
    (2) The reapportionment of surplus whiting will be made by actual 
notice under the automatic action authority provided at Sec. 
660.60(d)(1).
    (3) The reapportionment of surplus whiting will be made effective 
immediately by actual notice under the automatic action authority 
provided at Sec. 660.60(d)(1).
    (4) Estimates of the portion of the tribal allocation that will not 
be used by the end of the fishing year will be based on the best 
information available to the Regional Administrator.

Sec. 660.140  Shorebased IFQ Program.

    (a) General. The regulations in this section apply to the Shorebased 
IFQ Program. The Shorebased IFQ Program 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

[[Page 207]]

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. 660.115 Trawl fishery cost recovery program, 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.
    (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 account owner must 
declare out of the Shorebased IFQ Program, and must eliminate the 
deficit prior to re-entry into the fishery in the current year, or 
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.
    (x) Fish sellers must pay cost recovery program fees, as specified 
at Sec. 660.115.
    (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).
    (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).
    (iii) Ensure that all catch is sorted, prior to first weighing, as 
specified at

[[Page 208]]

Sec. 660.130(d) and consistent with Sec. 660.140(j)(2)(viii).
    (iv) Provide unrestricted access to all areas where fish are or may 
be sorted or weighed to catch monitors, NMFS staff, NMFS-authorized 
personnel, or authorized officers 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 catch monitors, NMFS staff, NMFS-
authorized personnel, or authorized officers, 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 
described paragraph (i) of this section.
    (ix) Collect and remit to NMFS cost recovery program fees, as 
specified at Sec. 660.115.
    (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 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.

[[Page 209]]

    (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[min] N. lat., 
and minor shelf rockfish S. of 40[deg]10[min] N. lat., and minor slope 
rockfish S. of 40[deg]10[min] 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[min] 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 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

[[Page 210]]

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. Rounding rules may 
affect distribution of the entire shorebased trawl allocation. NMFS will 
distribute such allocations to the maximum extent practicable, not to 
exceed the total allocation. 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, 
unless there is a reapportionment of Pacific whiting consistent with 
Sec. 660.131(h) and paragraph (d)(3) of this section or a release of 
additional QP consistent with Sec. 660.60(c) and paragraph 
(d)(3)(ii)(B)(3) of this section.
    (A) Non-whiting 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. Until the implementation 
of any regulatory changes developed pursuant to the first program review 
for the trawl rationalization program, the resulting AMP QP will be 
issued to all QS permit owners in proportion to their non-whiting QS.
    (1) In years where the groundfish harvest specifications are known 
by January 1, deposits to QS accounts for IFQ species will be made on or 
about January 1.
    (2) In years where the groundfish harvest specifications are not 
known by January 1, NMFS will issue QP in two parts. On or about January 
1, NMFS will deposit QP based on the shorebased trawl allocation 
multiplied by the lower end of the range of potential harvest 
specifications for that year. After the final harvest specifications are 
established later in the year, NMFS will deposit additional QP to the QS 
account.
    (3) In years where the non-tribal deductions from the TAC, ACL, or 
ACT when specified, described at Sec. 660.55(b), were too high and 
would go unharvested, NMFS may increase the shorebased trawl allocation, 
consistent with Sec. 660.60(c), and issue additional QP to QS accounts.
    (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

[[Page 211]]

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 QS accounts.
    (3) In years where the non-tribal deductions from the TAC, ACL, or 
ACT when specified, described at Sec. 660.55(b), were too high and 
would go unharvested, NMFS may increase the shorebased trawl allocation, 
consistent with Sec. 660.60(c), and issue additional QP to QS accounts.
    (4) In years where there is reapportionment of Pacific whiting, 
specified at Sec. 660.131(h), to the Shorebased IFQ Program, NMFS will 
increase the shorebased trawl allocation and issue additional QP to QS 
accounts as described at paragraph (d)(3)(ii)(B)(3) of this section.
    (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 
bycatch mortality limit for that year. Deposits to QS accounts for 
Pacific halibut IBQ pounds will be made on or about January 1 each year. 
Mortality of any size Pacific halibut count against IBQ pounds.
    (1) In years where the Pacific halibut total constant exploitation 
yield is known by January 1, deposits to QS accounts will be made on or 
about January 1.
    (2) In years where the Pacific halibut total constant exploitation 
yield is not known by January 1, NMFS will issue QP in two parts. On or 
about January 1, NMFS will deposit QP based on some portion of the 
International Pacific Halibut Commission's staff recommended total 
constant exploitation yield from their interim meeting. After the final

    (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 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.
    (iii) QS permit application process. NMFS will accept a QS permit 
application from January 1 to November 30 of each calendar year. QS 
permit applications received between December 1 and December 31 will be 
processed by NMFS in the following calendar year. NMFS will issue only 
one QS permit to each unique person, as defined at Sec. 660.11 subject 
to the eligibility requirements at paragraph (d)(2)(i) of this section. 
Each applicant must submit a complete application. A complete 
application includes a QS permit application form, 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, and a complete economic data collection form 
if required under Sec. 660.114. NMFS may require additional 
documentation as it deems necessary to make a determination on the 
application. The QS permit application will be considered incomplete 
until the required information is submitted.
    (A) Initial administrative determination. For all complete 
applications, NMFS will issue an IAD that either approves or disapproves 
the application. If approved, the QS permit serves as the IAD. If 
disapproved, the IAD will provide the reasons for this determination. 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.
    (B) Effective date. The QS permit is effective on the date given on 
the permit and remains effective until the end of the calendar year.
    (C) Appeals. If NMFS does not accept the QS permit application, the 
applicant may appeal the IAD consistent with the general permit appeals 
process defined at Sec. 660.25(g).
    (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 effect the following year. A complete QS permit renewal 
package must be received by NMFS no later than November 30 to be 
accepted by NMFS. A QS permit owner may submit a paper renewal

[[Page 213]]

package after January 1 of the following year as described in paragraph 
(d)(3)(i)(C) of this section.
    (B) Notification to renew QS permits will be sent by SFD by 
September 15 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) A complete QS permit renewal package must be received by 
November 30 of each calendar year. If a complete QS permit renewal 
package is not received by November 30, NMFS will not renew the QS 
permit, the associated QS account will not be activated in the following 
calendar year, and QS may not be transferred. NMFS will not issue QP or 
IBQ pounds associated with the non-renewed QS permit for that year. Any 
QP or IBQ pounds derived from the QS or IBQ in the inactive QS account 
will be distributed to the active QS accounts in proportion to the QS or 
IBQ for each IFQ species given on the renewed QS permit. If a QS permit 
is not renewed during the October 1 through November 30 renewal period, 
the QS permit owner may renew after January 1 in the following year by 
submission of a paper renewal application, or may renew the QS permit 
during the next October 1 through November 30 renewal period. For 
renewals submitted after January 1, QPs allocated as specified at 
paragraph (d)(1) of this section will not be allocated to the QS account 
in that year. The QS permit owner will be able to transfer QS 
percentages from the time the QS account is activated until November 30 
of that calendar year.
    (D) QS permits will not be renewed until SFD has received a complete 
application for a QS permit renewal, 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. The QS permit renewal will be considered 
incomplete until the required information is submitted.
    (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) 
Change in QS permit ownership. Ownership of a QS permit cannot be 
registered 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 legal name of the permit owner(s) as given on 
the permit). Any change in ownership 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

[[Page 214]]

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. Beginning January 1, 
2014, QS permit owners may transfer QS (except for widow rockfish QS) or 
IBQ to another owner of a QS permit, subject to accumulation limits and 
approval by NMFS. The prohibition on transferability of widow rockfish 
QS is extended indefinitely pending final action on reallocation of 
widow rockfish QS, or a NMFS determination that no such reallocation 
will occur, except under U.S. court order or authorization and as 
approved 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%). QS 
or IBQ cannot be transferred to a vessel account. Owners of non-renewed 
QS permits may not transfer QS. QP in QS accounts cannot be transferred 
between QS accounts. NMFS will allocate QP based on the QS percentages 
as listed on a QS permit that was renewed during the previous October 1 
through November 30 renewal period. QS transfers will be recorded in the 
QS account but will not become effective for purposes of allocating QPs 
until the following year. QS or IBQ may not be transferred between 
December 1 through December 31 each year. Any QS transaction that is 
pending as of December 1 will be administratively retracted. NMFS will 
allocate QP for the following year based on the QS percentages as of 
December 1 of each year.
    (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. 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. 
All QP or IBQ pounds from a QS account must be transferred to one or 
more vessel accounts by September 1 each year. If, after September 1 in 
any year, the Regional Administrator makes a decision to reapportion 
Pacific whiting from the tribal to the non-tribal fishery or NMFS 
releases additional QP consistent with Sec. 660.60(c) and paragraph 
(d)(1)(ii) of this section, the following actions will be taken.
    (i) NMFS will credit QS accounts with additional QP proportionally, 
based on the QS percent for a particular QS permit owner and the 
increase in the shorebased trawl allocation specified at paragraph 
(d)(1)(ii)(D) of this section.
    (ii) The QS account transfer function will be reactivated by NMFS 
from the date that QS accounts are credited with additional QP to allow 
QS permit owners to transfer QP to vessel accounts only for those IFQ 
species with additional QP.
    (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.

[[Page 215]]

    (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
    (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, with the exception of those activities allowed under 
paragraphs (d)(4)(iii)(C) and (G) of this section;
    (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, with the exception of those activities allowed under 
paragraphs (d)(4)(iii)(C) and (G) of this section;
    (C) The person, excluding banks and other financial institutions 
that rely on QS or IBQ as collateral for loans as described under 
paragraph (d)(4)(iii)(G) of this section, has the right to direct,

[[Page 216]]

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, with the exception of 
those activities allowed under paragraphs (d)(4)(iii)(C) and (G) of this 
section;
    (E) The person, 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, with 
the exception of those activities allowed under paragraphs 
(d)(4)(iii)(C) and (G) of this section;
    (F) The person 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, with the 
exception of those activities allowed under paragraphs (d)(4)(iii)(C) 
and (G) of this section;
    (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
    (1) To qualify for this exception, a bank or other financial 
institution must be regularly or primarily engaged in the business of 
lending and not engaged in or controlled by entities whose primary 
business is the harvesting, processing, or distribution of fish or fish 
products.
    (2) Any state or federally chartered bank or financial institution 
that meets the requirement of paragraph (d)(4)(iii)(G)(1) of this 
section does not need to submit additional information to NMFS.
    (3) Any entity that is not a state or federally chartered bank or 
financial institution, must submit a letter requesting the exception and 
disclose the identity and interest share of any shareholder with a 2% or 
more ownership interest in the lender through submission of the Trawl 
Identification of Ownership Interest Form (see paragraph (d)(4)(iv) of 
this section). The lender must make subsequent annual submissions of the 
letter and Trawl Identification of Ownership Interest Form to maintain 
the exception. Letters requesting the exception and complete Trawl 
Identification of Ownership Interest Forms may be submitted to NMFS, 
West Coast Region, Permits Office, ATTN: Fisheries Permit Office, Bldg. 
1, 7600 Sand Point Way NE., Seattle, WA 98115. NMFS will only accept 
complete applications.
    (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, with the exception of those activities allowed under 
paragraphs (d)(4)(iii)(C) and (G) of this section.
    (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 non-whiting QS limit

[[Page 217]]

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 during which they will have to completely divest their 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 as of November 8, 2008, if such ownership has been 
registered with NMFS by November 30, 2008. The owner of any permit 
acquired after November 8, 2008, or if acquired 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 QS 
(except for widow rockfish QS) or IBQ in excess of the accumulation 
limits by November 30, 2015, according to the procedure provided under 
paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) of this section. If NMFS identifies that a QS 
permit owner exceeds the accumulation limits in 2016 or beyond, the QS 
permit owner must divest of the QS or IBQ in excess of the accumulation 
limits according to the procedure provided under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(B) 
of this section. Owners 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.
    (A) Divestiture and redistribution process in 2015. QS permit owners 
in excess of the control limit for aggregate nonwhiting QS holdings may 
abandon QS to NMFS by November 15, 2015 using the procedure provided 
under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(C) of this section. QS permit owners must 
divest themselves of any QS or IBQ in excess of the accumulation limits 
by November 30, 2015, except for widow rockfish QS, which cannot be 
transferred as described in paragraph (d)(3)(ii)(B)(2) of this section. 
After the November 30, 2015 divestiture deadline, NMFS will revoke all 
QS or IBQ held by a person (including any person who has ownership 
interest in the owner names on the permit) in excess of the accumulation 
limits following the procedures specified under paragraphs (d)(4)(v)(D) 
through (G) of this section. All abandoned or revoked shares will be 
redistributed to all other QS permit owners in proportion to their QS or 
IBQ holdings on or about January 1, 2016, based on current ownership 
records, except that no person will be allocated an amount of QS or IBQ 
that would put that person over an accumulation limit.
    (B) Divestiture and redistribution process in 2016 and beyond. Any 
person owning or controlling QS or IBQ must comply with the accumulation 
limits, even if that control is not reflected in the ownership records 
available to NMFS as specified under paragraphs (d)(4)(i) and (iii) of 
this section. If NMFS identifies that a QS permit owner exceeds an 
accumulation limit in 2016 or beyond, NMFS will notify the QS permit 
owner that he or she has 90 days to divest of the excess QS or IBQ. In 
the case that a QS permit owner exceeds the control limit for aggregate 
nonwhiting QS holdings, the QS permit owner may abandon QS to NMFS 
within 60 days of the notification by NMFS, using the procedure provided 
under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(C) of this section. After the 90-day 
divestiture period, NMFS will revoke all QS or IBQ held by a person 
(including any person who has ownership interest in the owner names on 
the permit) in excess of the accumulation limits following the 
procedures specified under paragraphs (d)(4)(v)(D) through (G) of this 
section. All abandoned or revoked shares will be redistributed to all 
other QS permit owners in proportion to their QS or IBQ holdings on or 
about January 1 of the following calendar year, based on current 
ownership records, except that no person will be allocated an amount of 
QS or IBQ that would put that person over an accumulation limit.

[[Page 218]]

    (C) Abandonment of QS. QS permit owners that are over the control 
limit for aggregate nonwhiting QS holdings may voluntarily abandon QS if 
they notify NMFS in writing by the applicable deadline specified under 
paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) of this section. The written abandonment 
request must include the following information: QS permit number, IFQ 
species, and the QS percentage to be abandoned. Either the QS permit 
owner or an authorized representative of the QS permit owner must sign 
the request. QS permit owners choosing to utilize the abandonment option 
will permanently relinquish to NMFS any right to the abandoned QS, and 
the QS will be redistributed as described under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) 
or (B) of this section. No compensation will be due for any abandoned 
shares.
    (D) Revocation. NMFS will revoke QS from any QS permit owner who 
exceeds an accumulation limit after the divestiture deadline specified 
under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) of this section. NMFS will follow 
the revocation approach summarized in the following table and explained 
under paragraphs (d)(4)(v)(E) through (G) of this section:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
 If, after the divestiture deadline, a QS
        permit owner exceeds . . .                   Then . . .

 across multiple QS permits.                 to the amount the QS
                                             percentage from each permit
                                             contributes to the total QS
                                             percentage owned.
The control limit for aggregate nonwhiting  NMFS will revoke QS at the
 QS holdings.                                species level in proportion
                                             to the amount of the
                                             aggregate overage divided
                                             by the aggregate total
                                             owned. Until widow
                                             reallocation is complete,
                                             the proportion will be
                                             adjusted to hold widow QS
                                             at a constant level while
                                             bringing the aggregate
                                             percentage owned to 2.700%,
                                             using normal rounding
                                             rules.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (E) Revocation of excess QS or IBQ from one QS permit. In cases 
where a person has not divested to the control limits for individual 
species (non-widow until reallocation is complete) in one QS permit by 
the deadline specified under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) of this 
section, NMFS will revoke excess QS at the species level in order to get 
that person to the limits. NMFS will redistribute the revoked QS 
following the process specified in paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) of this 
section. No compensation will be due for any revoked shares.
    (F) Revocation of excess QS or IBQ from multiple QS permits. In 
cases where a person has not divested to the control limits for 
individual species (non-widow QS until reallocation is complete) across 
QS permits by the deadline specified under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) 
of this section, NMFS will revoke QS at the species level in proportion 
to the amount the QS percentage from each permit contributes to the 
total QS percentage owned. NMFS will redistribute the revoked QS 
following the process specified in paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) of this 
section. No compensation will be due for any revoked shares.
    (G) Revocation of QS in excess of the control limit for aggregate 
nonwhiting QS holdings. In cases where a QS permit owner has not 
divested to the control limit for aggregate nonwhiting QS holdings by 
the deadline specified under paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) of this 
section, NMFS will revoke QS at the species level in proportion to the 
amount of the aggregate overage divided by the aggregate total owned. 
Until widow reallocation is complete and transfer of widow is allowed, 
widow will continue to be included in the aggregate calculation, but the 
proportion will be adjusted to hold widow QS at a constant level while 
bringing the aggregate percentage owned to 2.700%, using normal rounding 
rules. NMFS will redistribute the revoked QS following the process in 
paragraph (d)(4)(v)(A) or (B) of this section. 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

[[Page 219]]

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 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

[[Page 220]]

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 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[min], minor shelf rockfish S. of 40[deg]10[min], and minor 
slope rockfish S. of 40[deg]10[min] 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[min] N. lat., shortspine thornyhead south of 34[deg]27[min] N. 
lat., longspine thornyhead north of 34[deg]27[min] 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 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, 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[min] N. 
lat.; (c) 43[deg]55[min] N. lat. and 40[deg]10[min] N. lat.; and (d) 
south of 40[deg]10[min] 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).

[[Page 223]]

    (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:
