CLOSED: Southern California Bight Shelf Rockfish Project
Submission deadline passed.
Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) intends to charter two vessels to participate in a fisheries research project in 2012. The project will be in collaboration with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).
The timeline for the project will be approximately September 20 through October 5 and will require two chartered vessels. These dates are subject to change based upon weather, logistical, or other contingencies. Mobilization and demobilization for both charters will be conducted in Newport Beach, CA. The mobilization timeframe is necessary for completing the following tasks: (1) loading gear, (2) planning use of deck space, (3) setting up electronics, and (4) orientating the scientific crew with the vessel. The demobilization timeframe will include cleaning, unloading, and packing any scientific gear brought aboard the vessel for the project.
The Contractor agrees to furnish a vessel, crew, fuel, and bait necessary for sampling between 20 and 125 fathoms in the Pacific Ocean for shelf rockfish.
