(a) In managing the commercial sac roe herring fishery in Section 1 -E and the waters of Section 1-F north of the latitude of South Vallenar Point, the department shall

(1) manage the commercial herring fishery so that the opportunity to fish herring in years in which the threshold level is met will alternate between the set gillnet and purse seine fisheries; the set gillnet fishery must occur the first year that the threshold level is met;

(2) determine the equal share quota by dividing the annual harvest objective by the maximum number of CFEC permits eligible to be fished in the fishery; a CFEC permit holder may not retain more herring than the annual amount of the equal share quota specified by the department.

(b) The commissioner will open and close fishing periods and areas open for fishing by emergency order. In the emergency order, the commissioner may impose other conditions that are necessary for an orderly and manageable fishery.

(c) Repealed 4/2/2006.

(d) When the harvest of herring by the purse seine fishery or the set gillnet fishery exceeds the guideline harvest level for a year, the excess harvest will not be factored into determining the guideline harvest level for a future year.

(e) Repealed 4/2/2006.

(f) If a commercial herring sac roe fishery is not conducted during a year due to insufficient spawning herring in the registration area specified in this section, the gear type that was to fish that year will be the first gear type to fish when the threshold level is met in a subsequent year.
