The Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands Groundfish FMP
This Fisheries Management Plan includes all species of groundfish (pollock, cod, flatfish, sablefish, rockfish, etc.) fished commercially by vessels using trawl, longline, pot, and jig gear. Inseason management of these fisheries is done by NMFS in Juneau.
The Council revised its BSAI and GOA groundfish management policy in 2004. The policy contains a management approach and 45 objectives, which are categorized by goal statements.
The Council adopted a workplan of priority actions to implement the management policy. The status of this workplan is updated at every meeting, and presented under the Staff Tasking agenda item.
