Expansion of the use of sectors in the Northeast (NE) multispecies fishery is intended to provide fishermen with more flexibility and more direct responsibility for managing the resource. Therefore, NE multispecies sector vessels that have sector-specific questions regarding fishing year 2010 management measures should first attempt to contact their sector manager, as the sector manager can best address sector-specific informational needs. Contacting your sector manager first will keep him/her up to date with current situations within your sector, and educate your manager on specific sector policy topics should a similar question arise in the future from another sector member.

Sector-specific topics that can only be addressed by the sector manager include, but are not limited to:

  • Annual Catch Entitlement (ACE) distribution to sector members
  • ACE quota monitoring
  • General Sector Administration
  • Individual Allocation balances
  • Member contractual obligations to the Sector
    • Membership Fees
    • Right of First Refusal
    • Schedule of Penalties
  • Safe Harbor Protocols
  • Sector Harvest Rules

Sector-specific topics that NOAA Fisheries Service recommends be addressed by the sector manager include, but are not limited to:

  • Sector monitoring requirements
  • Dockside Monitoring hail procedures
    • Offloading procedures when selected for Dockside

Monitoring

  • At-Sea Monitoring assignments
  • Sector-specific exemptions
  • Sector-specific reporting requirements
