Summary

2022 and 2023 harvest specifications, apportionments, and prohibited species catch allowances for the groundfish fishery of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) management area, and final 2022 and 2023 harvest specifications, apportionments, and prohibited species catch allowances for the groundfish fishery of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI). These actions are necessary to establish harvest limits for groundfish during the remainder of the 2022 and 2023 fishing years and to accomplish the goals and objectives of the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the BSAI and the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the GOA.

50 CFR 679 regulations allow for changes during the fishing year to the total allowable catch (TAC), prohibited species catch (PSC) limits, and further allocations of the TAC and PSC limits. NOAA implements these changes through publications in the Federal Register. The changes include inseason adjustments, reallocations of sector amounts, reallocations from the non-specified reserves, BSAI flatfish flexibility exchanges, and other necessary changes as recommended by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council and approval by the Secretary of Commerce.
