CLOSED: Midwater Trawl Vessel Needed for Testing a Bycatch Reduction Device in the Pacific RFP
Submission deadline passed.
Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) intends to charter one midwater trawl vessel engaged in the Pacific whiting, Merluccius productus, fishery to participate in a project testing a Bycatch Reduction Device (BRD) designed to reduce Chinook salmon, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, and rockfish, Sebastes spp., bycatch. This project will be a collaborative study between the PSMFC, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Service-Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC), and the west coast Pacific whiting fishing industry.
