CLOSURE OF PAVLOF BAY AND JUDE ISLAND IN THE EASTERN SECTION OF THE SOUTH PENINSULA DISTRICT TANNER CRAB FISHERY

EMERGENCY ORDER NO. 4-8-4-12

All waters between 161° W. longitude and 162° W. longitude in the Eastern Section of the South Peninsula District will close to Tanner crab fishing at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 26, 2012. Catch reports indicate harvest will approach survey estimates of allowable Tanner crab surplus. Further harvest is not warranted to protect the long-term health of Tanner crab in this area. All pots within the closed area must be unbaited and doors open at the time of the closure. Unbaited pots may be stored in the closed area in waters deeper than 25 fathoms for 72 hours. After 72 hours, all pots remaining in the closed area must be removed from the water or placed in waters shallower than 25 fathoms. Vessel operators are not required to deliver crab harvested from the closed prior to targeting Tanner crab in other areas of the Eastern Section of the South Peninsula District that remain open to Tanner crab fishing.

2012 CHIGNIK DISTRICT TANNER CRAB SEASON TO OPEN JANUARY 25

The National Weather Service (NWS) 4:00 AM 48-hour marine forecast for Area 155 on January

NOON on Wednesday, January 25 regardless of the marine weather forecast.
All participants must validate their Chignik District Tanner crab registration with the Alaska
Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) prior to participating in the fishery. Final registration
will occur at the Harbor Master’s office in Sand Point or by fax from areas outside of Sand Point
starting at 12:00 NOON on Tuesday, January 24. The Kodiak ADF&G fax number is 907-486-
