CLOSED: Bering Sea Aleutian Islands Crab Rationalization Economic Data Report Data Validation RFP

Submission deadline passed.
The North Pacific Fishery Management Council developed the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) Crab Rationalization Program over a 6-year period to accommodate the specific dynamics and needs of the BSAI crab fisheries. The BSAI Crab Rationalization Program is comprised of a number of novel aspects, and the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council (Council) is interested in ensuring that it will be able to adequately assess the impact of the Program and future management changes on affected parties. Therefore, the Council specified that a mandatory economic data collection program be developed to provide employment, cost, and sales data necessary to understand the economic performance of harvesters and processors participating in BSAI crab fisheries. Annual Economic data reports (EDRs) that collect quantitative financial information about harvesters' and processors' crab operations were specifically developed for the crab fisheries. Completion and submission of EDR forms are required as a condition of permit renewal and continued participation in the crab fishery since the program was implemented in 2005.

Nov. 12, 2010 alt text CLOSED: Professional Services West Coast Groundfish Observer Program RFP

Submission deadline passed.
Managers of the West Coast groundfish fishery need reliable information on discarded catch in order to assess and account for total fishing mortality and to evaluate the effectiveness of management measures, including rebuilding plans for depleted stocks. During the past decade, trip limits for West Coast groundfish vessels have been substantially reduced, and trip limits have been applied to increasing numbers of species. If discard mortality is higher than currently projected, then overall fishing mortality rates will likely be higher than sustainable levels. Without current and ongoing information on the levels of catch and discard in the fishery, managers may be either overfishing or missing harvest opportunities by wide margins.
