December 16, 2016 -- The Alaska RFM Certification Draft Assessment Report for the re-assessment of the Alaska halibut fishery is now available for stakeholder comment. The 30-day comment period runs from December 16, 2016 through January 16, 2017 at 5:00 PM Pacific.
Certification Body, Global Trust/SAI Global, is conducting the re-assessment for the Alaska halibut fishery. Registered stakeholders will be sent a copy of the report. Stakeholders can register to receive the report here:
The Assessment Team appointed to the fishery assessment will review each comment submitted by stakeholders and determine if clarifications, updates or modifications to the report are necessary. The Certification Body will ultimately preside/govern over the final outcome on certification of a fishery consistent with accreditation requirements and the Certification Program's rules.
As a reminder, information is most useful to the assessment team when it is specific and includes constructive suggestions for improving existing situations. Also, supporting documentary evidence for any issues of concern will be greatly appreciated by the assessment team.
