COOK INLET PARALLEL PACIFIC COD SEASON CLOSES
TO LONGLINE VESSELS GREATER THAN OR EQUAL TO 50 FEET IN LENGTH

EO # 2-GF-H-06-12

The parallel Pacific cod season in the Cook Inlet Management Area will close to vessels greater
than or equal to 50 feet in length using longline gear effective 12:00 noon March 20, 2012.
This coincides with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) closure of the Pacific cod
catcher vessel greater than or equal to 50 foot hook-and-line gear sector in the federal Central
Gulf of Alaska area. The parallel season is now closed to all gear types.
Fishermen are reminded that there is a 24-hour delivery time requirement following closure of a
groundfish fishery.
