Vessel Needed for Codend Selectivity Study in the Groundfish Bottom Trawl Fishery

Deadline for written questions: 3.19.2015
Deadline for submissions: 3.30.2015

The Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) intends to charter one vessel to
participate in a research project seeking to examine the size-selection characteristics
between 4.5” and 5.0” T90 mesh, and 4.5” diamond mesh codends (BK measurements)
and evaluate their efficacy at reducing discards of juvenile rockfishes and sablefish, and
unmarketable-sized fishes in the west coast groundfish bottom trawl fishery. T90 mesh is
conventional diamond mesh that has been turned 90 o in orientation. This project seeks to
conduct 12 sample days (depending on charter rate) between 15 April and 30 September
2015. PSMFC will be responsible for designing the project and providing all scientific
equipment needed for the project. The Contractor agrees to furnish a vessel, crew, bottom
trawl, and all additional gear necessary for bottom trawling for groundfish species. PSMFC
will supply the codends to be tested. The Captain and crew must be available during all
scientific operations. In order to ensure full use of each sample day, the captain and crew
should make any necessary transit arrangements in order to begin fishing operations at the
start of each sample day. All fishing will occur during daylight hours.
