NOAA proposes rule to prevent commercial harvesting of krill
Date:5/21/2008

NOAAs Fisheries Service issued a proposed rule in the Federal Register to prohibit the future harvesting of krill between three and 200 miles of the coasts of California, Oregon, and Washington. Krill are a small shrimp-like crustacean and a key source of nutrition in the marine food web.

While there is currently no commercial fishing for krill, this proposed rule would prohibit any future harvesting or permitting of any fishing for krill in the Exclusive Economic Zone off the West Coast.

This is a proactive measure designed to ensure the stability of our marine ecosystem by protecting its fundamental food source, said Rodney McInnis, NOAAs Fisheries Service southwest regional administrator. We are very pleased to work with the Pacific Fishery Management Council to provide this protection.

NOAA Fisheries Service has issued this proposed rule to implement Amendment 12 to the Coastal Pelagic Species Fishery Management Plan. The Pacific Fishery Management Council recommended the amendment to ensure the preservation of key nutritional relationships in the California Current ecosystem by protecting krill resources off the West Coast.
