A final rule was published in the Federal Register on 63 FR 32144 (June 12, 1998) to authorize the distribution of Pacific halibut taken as bycatch in the specified groundfish trawl fisheries off Alaska to economically disadvantaged individuals through tax-exempt organizations selected by NMFS to be the authorized distributors.
