Document Description
The proposed project is a body of proposed regulations governing the commercial harvest of herring for roe products, bait, pet food, as fresh fish, and the harvest of herring eggs-on-kelp. The proposed project takes the form of recommendations for continuation, amendment, or change to an existing body of regulations in effect since November 2007 (Sections 163, and 164, Title 14, CCR). It also includes regulations from Section 163.1 and 163.5 Title 14, CCR, that were adopted by the Commission on March 2006 and October 2002, respectively. The specific regulatory changes proposed for the 2008-09 season will: (1) provide the Commission the option to consider a quota equal to 0-10% of the most recent spawning biomass estimate (the Department's recommendation for the 2008-09 season is 1,118 tons, which is 10% of the 2007-08 spawning biomass); (2) set the dates of the roe herring fisheries in San Francisco Bay from 5:00 pm on December 1, 2008, until noon on December 19, 2008 ("DH" gill net platoon only), and 5:00 pm on January 4, 2009, until noon on March 20, 2009; and (3) set the dates of the roe herring fishery in Tomales Bay from noon on December 26, 2008, until noon on February 27, 2009.
