Dec. 13, 2013 alt text CLOSED: Southern California Shelf Rockfish Hook And Line Survey RFP

Submission deadline passed.
Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) intends to charter three vessels to participate in a fisheries research project in 2013. The project will be in collaboration with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The timeline for the project will be approximately September 16 through September 28 and will require three chartered vessels. These dates are subject to change based upon weather, logistical, or other contingencies. Mobilization for the charters is scheduled for September 16-17 and is tentatively planned to occur in Oxnard, CA. Demobilization is scheduled for September 28 and is tentatively planned to occur in Long Beach, CA. A port call is planned for September 23 and will occur in a Southern California port city to be determined based on survey logistics. 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. The Captain and crew for all selected vessels will support the scientific party in the use of hook and line fishing gear deployed via rods and reels. In an effort to standardize gear, NMFS will supply the fishing gear that will be used during the survey. During mobilization, the vessel crew will tie gangions and prepare fishing equipment (rods, reels, sinkers, etc.).

Apr. 1, 2013 alt text CLOSED: Vessel Assistance Needed for a Project Examining Effect of Artificial Light on Salmon Behavior and Escapement in a Pacific Hake Trawl RFP

Submission deadline passed.
The Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) intends to charter one vessel to participate in a project looking to examine if artificial light can enhance the escapement rates of Chinook salmon out an open escape window bycatch reduction device (BRD) in a Pacific hake trawl. This project seeks to conduct 10 sample days (depending on vessel charter rate) between 15 May and 31 August 2013. Data on Chinook salmon escapement will be collected using two autonomous, high-resolution, low-light, color video camera systems. The number of tows conducted per day will be determined by catch rates, weather, and other logistical concerns. The port used for mobilization and demobilization will be determined once a contractor has been selected. The mobilization time is necessary for loading gear, setting up equipment, and orienting the scientific crew with the vessel. The demobilization time frame will include offloading the scientific gear brought aboard the vessel during the project. PSMFC will be responsible for providing all scientific equipment needed for the project. This project will be a collaborative study between the PSMFC, Pacific hake fishing industry, and the NMFS Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC).
