Alaska Fishermen diversify to fill the kelp demand National Fisherman by Carli Stewart - October 3, 2023 Predominantly grown on the Pacific Coast from California to Alaska - and even in parts of New England - kelp forests have been harvested on a large scale since World War I, when the vegetation was used as a source of potash to make gunpowder. During that time, the harvest was unregulated and destructive to the surrounding habitats. Nowadays, the harvest of kelp is more sustainable due to harvesters only removing the upper portion of the canopy of the algae. https://www.nationalfisherman.com/fishermen-diversify-to-fill-the-kelp-demand Federal Register North Pacific Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting A Notice by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on 10/03/2023 The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) Charter Halibut Management Committee will meet via web conference. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2023/10/03/2023-21859/north-pacific-fishery-management-council-public-meeting Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Pacific Ocean Perch in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area A Rule by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on 10/03/2023 NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific ocean perch in the Central Aleutian district (CAI) of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI) by vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access sector fishery.
