NMFS and the State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game are developing proposed regulations to implement a quota-based program for the crab fisheries covered under the Crab FMP. One aspect of this process is the development of catch monitoring, weighing, and accounting standards for shoreside processors and other first-buyers of crab. NMFS is conducting a workshop on May 6, 2004, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., P.l.t., so that interested industry members may provide input to NMFS on the development and implementation of these standards.
