Salmon Fisheries Management Planning Team
Next BSAI and GOA Groundfish Plan Team Event
The Council developed the Fishery Management Plan for the Salmon Fisheries in the EEZ off Alaska (FMP) under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act, 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.). The Secretary of Commerce approved the FMP and it became effective in 1979. The FMP was most recently revised in 2018 through Amendment 13, which updated descriptions of EFH for Pacific salmon.
