Document Description
NOTES: Final Supplemental Env. Doc The proposed project, as defined in teh Final Environmental Document (FED) certified by the California Fish and Game Commission (Commission) on August 28, 1998, is the regulation of Pacific herring (herring), Clupea pallasi, fisheries under the State's jurisdiction. The regulations are considered for inclusion in the California Code of Regulations (CCR) to implement the State's policies for managing the commercial use of herring (Sections 163, 163.1, 163.5, and 164, Title 14, CCR). The proposed project and alternatives addressed in this Draft Supplemental Environmental Document (DSED) take the form of recommendations for amendment or change to the existing body of regulations. The recommendations and alternatives are based on biological assessments of existing stock conditions and comments received from interested individuals, commercial fisherman, and from the Director's Herring Advisory Committee (DHAC). The Commission has legislatively delegated authority to act on these recommendations. The project goal is to maintain healthy herring stocks in California.
