The price of Indian shrimp remains low, and the willingness to invest seedlings is obviously insufficient. The annual output value may shrink by 25%. In 2023, the quota of American pollock fishing is expected to further increase. The North Pacific Fisheries Management Commission (NPFMC) recommended that the US Department of Commerce set the Alaska Pollock Catch Quota (TAC) for next year at 1.321 million tons, an increase of 16.7% over 2022.
NPFMC suggested that the TAC of the East Bering Sea haddock should be set at 1.3 million tons next year, an increase of 17% over 2022; The TAC of Alaska Gulf haddock is set at 19000 tons, the same as that in 2022; The total quota of Bogoslof is set at 250 tons, which remains unchanged.
On December 11, NPFMC held a meeting in Anchorage, Alaska. According to the previous recommendations of the advisory group, on the basis that the total quota does not exceed 1.91 million tons, NPFMC appropriately raised the fishing quota for next year, which is 17% more than that in 2022 (1.11 million tons).
In October this year, Jim Ianelli, a senior biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), told UCN that, according to the data selected by the scientific research team, the matching degree between the TAC of the East Bering Sea pollock and the real biomass was low last year, because the latest data showed that the biomass of the East Bering Sea pollock was seriously underestimated this year.
American researchers estimate the biomass of pollock every year. NPFMC obtains relevant data from Ianelli and other researchers to develop the quota model for the next year. All these work will eventually be reported to the agenda of the December meeting. NPFMC will also propose quota recommendations for the next year to the U.S. Department of Commerce. Under normal circumstances, NPFMC's recommendations will be adopted by the government.
