If approved, Amendment 14 would incorporate the Cook Inlet EEZ Subarea into the Salmon FMP's West Area, thereby bringing the Cook Inlet EEZ Subarea and the commercial salmon fisheries that occur within it under Federal management by the Council and NMFS. Amendment 14 would manage the Cook Inlet EEZ Subarea by applying the prohibition on commercial salmon fishing that is currently established in the West Area to the newly added Cook Inlet EEZ Subarea. Amendment 14 is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), the Salmon FMP, and other applicable laws. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/05/18/2021-10450/fisheries-of-the-exclusive-economic-zone-off-alaska-cook-inlet-salmon-amendment-14 FYI’s 2021 Fisherman's Covid-19 Handbook Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association - May 17, 2021 BBRSDA worked with state and local officials as well as fishing industry stakeholders to create the COVID-19 Fisherman’s Handbook, a one-stop-shop for information fishermen need to safely operate in Bristol Bay this season. https://www.bbrsda.com/updates/2021/5/17/2021-fishermans-covid-19-handbook
