Document Description
Note: Supplemental; The project to be described is commercial fishing as an element of the Department's Pacific herring management program. Herring are primarily harvested for their roe (eggs) during the months of January through March (spawning season) using small mesh gill nets to take whole fish. The existing herring fishery is closely regulated through a catch quota system. Other management options under which the fishery has been conducted and which are available to the Commission include, but are not limited to, a limit on the number of permittees, seasons, gear restrictions, closed fishing areas, and landing and monitoring restrictions.
