Chapter 28 . Transportation, Possession and Release of Live Fish; Aquatic Farming
Section 272. Sablefish harvest, possession, and landing requirements for Prince William Sound Area

5 AAC 28.272. Sablefish harvest, possession, and landing requirements for Prince William Sound Area

(a) Before commercial fishing for sablefish in another registration area, the operator of a vessel registered to take sablefish in the Prince William Sound Area must land all sablefish taken and submit a copy of the completed fish ticket for the landed fish to the department.

(b) The operator of a fishing vessel may not take sablefish in the Prince William Sound Area while sablefish taken in another registration area are onboard the vessel.

(c) In the Prince William Sound Area, the holder of a CFEC limited entry permit or interim-use permit to take sablefish may not take more than the annual amount specified by the department. The department will determine the annual amount as follows:

(1) the annual amount will be the sum of one-half of the annual harvest objective divided by the number of permit holders registered to fish in the commercial sablefish fishery and one-half of the annual harvest objective multiplied by the average percentage of the harvest taken by the vessel category for which the CFEC permit was issued, as specified in 20 AAC 05.779, and divided by the number of permit holders registered to fish sablefish with the permits of that vessel category;

(2) the average percentages of harvest for the vessel categories described in (1) of this subsection are as follows:

(A) combined categories A, vessels with a length of 90 feet, and B, vessels with a maximum overall length of 60 feet: 18.53 percent;

(B) category C, vessels with a maximum overall length of 50 feet: 70.33 percent;

(C) category D, vessels with a maximum overall length of 35 feet: 11.14 percent.

(d) When participating in the commercial sablefish fishery in the Prince William Sound Area, the holder of a CFEC limited entry permit or interim-use permit must retain for inspection onboard the vessel a copy of each completed fish ticket issued to the permit holder during the current annual season.
