Interim 2014 Specifications for the Pacific Sardine Fishery

Docket ID: NOAA-NMFS-2013-0180
Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
Parent Agency: Department of Commerce (DOC)
NMFS proposes to implement an annual catch limit (ACL), harvest guideline (HG), annual catch target (ACT), and associated annual reference points for Pacific sardine in the U.S. exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the Pacific coast for the period of January 1, 2014, through June 30, 2014. This rule is proposed according to the Coastal Pelagic Species (CPS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP) and reflects the proposed change to the starting date of the annual Pacific sardine fishery from January 1 to July 1. The proposed 2014 annual catch target (ACT) or maximum directed harvest guideline (HG) is 19,846 (mt). Based the seasonal allocation framework in the FMP, this equates to a January 1 to June 30 allocation of 6,946 mt (35% of ACT).
