Pacific Herring Commercial Fishing in Ocean Waters
Document Type
SIR - Supplemental EIR
Document Description
The project goal is to maintain healthy herring stocks in CA. Objectives for achieving this goal include: - Restore healthy age structures to stocks in need of rebuilding; - Avoid and/or minimize the harvest of two and three-year-old herring, many of which are first-time spawners; - Manage commercial harvest of herring to achieve a sustainable fishery; - Provide sufficient herring to conserve living resources of the ocean that utilize herring as a food source; - Provide sufficient herring to support recreational take. Under existing law, herring may be taken for commercial purposes only under a fish revocable permit, subject to such regulations, as the Commission shall prescribe (Fish and Game Code Section 8550). Current regulations specify permit qualifications, permit validation requirements, permit limitations, permit areas, seasons, fishing quotas, gear restrictions, and landing and monitoring requirements.
