[Filed April 23, 1997, 11:30 a.m.]

Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 97-06-083 and 97-08-128 [97-06-128].

Title of Rule: Commercial fishing rules.

Purpose: Amend Puget Sound commercial salmon fishing rules.

Other Identifying Information: RCW 75.08.080.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 75.08.080.

Statute Being Implemented: Amend commercial net seasons, closed areas, gear construction.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: Allow for harvest of salmon while protecting seabirds from entanglement in fishing nets. These measures are necessary to reduce entanglements of seabirds in gillnet and purse seine gear during fisheries in Areas 7 and 7A directed at Fraser River origin sockeye and pink salmon. These actions were generated pursuant to a five-year conservation plan which was developed by the Puget Sound net fishing industry in 1994 to address concerns about seabird entanglement in Puget Sound net fisheries. The first year of the plan included a major study to estimate marbled murrelet and other seabird entanglement rates. In addition, a pilot study was initiated to test modified gillnet and purse seine gear designed to reduce bird mortalities. The gillnet gear studies were expanded in 1995 and 1996, and the 1996 study resulted in these recommendations for gillnet gear modifications and fishing pattern changes. The fourth and fifth years of the plan, 1997 and 1998, were intended for phased implementation of fishing pattern changes, and the gear modifications indicated by the studies, to provide greater protection to seabirds.

Name of Proponent: Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, governmental.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: WAC 220-47-301, allow seabirds to escape from purse seines; WAC 220-47-302, allow seabirds to see gillnets; WAC 220-47-304, 220-47-311, 220-47-401, 220-47-411, and 220-47-428, 1997 season adjustments to allow for harvest of salmon; WAC 220-47-307, provide for escapement of salmon into Dungeness River system; WAC 220-47-319, provide escapement for juvenile salmonids; WAC 220-47-410, eliminate seabird interception at night and morning change of light; WAC 220-47-411, additionally, limit gillnet interaction with seabirds by reducing Areas 7 and 7A harvest to peak of run; and WAC 220-47-427, continue emerging commercial fishery started in 1996, and allow for continued participation by persons selected in 1996.

Proposal Changes the Following Existing Rules: Modifies seasons, closed areas, closed times for salmon harvest. Proposed gear changes, hours of harvest and other methods to reduce seabird mortality.

A small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW.

Small Business Economic Impact Statement

for

Reducing Seabird Net Entanglement


Description of the Proposed Rules: (1) Modify purse seine gear to provide a gap or multiple gaps in the corkline through which birds can escape (WAC 220-47-301); minor impact, see below.

(2) Require gillnet "bird strip" beginning in 1997 during Area 7 sockeye/pink fisheries (WAC 220-47-302). The "bird strip" is defined such that the first twenty meshes below the corkline are composed of five-inch mesh white opaque minimum 210d/48 (#18) diameter nylon twine.

(3) Require gillnet "bird strip" beginning in 1998 during Areas 7 and 7A sockeye/pink fisheries (WAC 220-47-302).

(4) Gillnet Fraser sockeye/pink fisheries are limited in timing to the peak of the sockeye migration (in 1997, gillnet fishing is proposed to be closed prior to August 1, 1997, and after August 23, 1997). (i.e. gillnets will "fish on abundance") (WAC 220-47-411).

(5) Close gillnet fishing during nighttime (defined as 1.5 hours after sunset to 1.5 hours before sunrise) (new section, chapter 220-47 WAC).

(6) Close gillnet fishing during morning change of light (defined as 1.5 hours before and after sunrise) (new section, chapter 220-47 WAC).

Purpose for the Proposed Rules: These measures are necessary to reduce entanglements of seabirds in gillnet and purse seine gear during fisheries in Areas 7 and 7A directed at Fraser River origin sockeye and pink salmon. These actions were generated pursuant to a five-year conservation plan which was developed by the Puget Sound net fishing industry in 1994 to address concerns about seabird entanglement in Puget Sound net fisheries. The first year of the plan included a major study to estimate marbled murrelet and other seabird entanglement rates. In addition, a pilot study was initiated to test modified gillnet and purse seine gear designed to reduce bird mortalities. The gillnet gear studies were expanded in 1995 and 1996, and the 1996 study resulted in these recommendations for gillnet gear modifications and fishing pattern changes. The fourth and fifth years of the plan, 1997 and 1998, were intended for phased implementation of fishing pattern changes, and the gear modifications indicated by the studies, to provide greater protection to seabirds.

Effect of the Proposed Rules on Small Businesses: (1) Elimination of a small number of purse seine corks has minimal effect on the fisher, see below.

(2) and (3) These items involve a capital investment, including materials, supplies and labor, in order to modify fishing nets to meet the proposed new requirement.

(4) through (6) These items involve a loss in fishing efficiency, and potentially income, for the fisher.

Small Business Economic Impact Statement: I. Industry (SIC code) Affected by These Proposed Rules: 0912, Finfish Fisheries.

II. Number of Businesses in That Industry: Only three hundred forty-nine businesses filed taxes with the Washington State Department of Revenue from this SIC code in 1995, the most recent year for which data are available1. This contrasts with approximately 3,756 Washington state licenses sold to commercial harvesters of finfish in 1995.

III. Number of Employees in That Industry: Unknown1.

IV. Number of Small Businesses in That Industry: Unknown1.

V. Number of Businesses in That Industry That are Affected by These Proposed Rules (Number of Puget Sound Gillnet Licenses): Puget Sound gillnets make up 25.7% of the 1995 finfish licenses and 26.6% of the 1996 finfish licenses. Puget Sound purse seines make up 7.9% of the 1996 [1995] finfish licenses and 8.8% of the 1996 finfish licenses. Numbers of licenses in this business category are shown in the table below:

and Wildlife License Statistics

VI. Description of Reporting, Recordkeeping, and Other Compliance Measures Required by the Proposal: Compliance with the proposed rules potentially includes reduced fishing time (and, therefore, reduced catch) and gear modifications. If businesses in the affected area do not already own gear conforming to the proposed new rules, then compliance with the rules will require modification of existing gear. There are no reporting or record-keeping requirements incorporated into this proposal.

VII. Costs of Compliance: Professional Services Required for Compliance: The services of a professional net hanger may be employed to accomplish the modification, but are not necessary.

Costs of Compliance, Including Costs of Equipment, Supplies, and Labor, and Loss of Sales or Revenue:

Item (1)

(Illus. 2)


No loss of revenue is anticipated from this proposed rule. Since the impact to Puget Sound purse seine fishers from this proposed rule is minor (less than $50 per business2, no additional analysis relative to this item is presented.

Items (2) and (3) - Capital costs:

(Illus. 3)




(Illus. 4)


Items (2) through (6) - Loss of revenue:

The analysis regarding loss of revenue is based on several assumptions, as follows:

A. It is assumed that gillnet fishing time will be increased during the open-period window to mitigate for the nighttime and morning-change-of-light closures (Items (5) and (6)) as well as the closures early and late in the season for "fish-on-abundance" (Item (4)). Management intent is to target gillnet fishing to harvest 41% of the United States nontreaty total allowable sockeye catch. Therefore, no additional loss of revenue is expected due to Items (4), (5), and (6), and the estimates below would represent maximum revenue losses.

B. Sockeye salmon harvest with the modified gillnet (Items (2) and (3)) is expected to be reduced by approximately 12% from the standard net4. This figure has been derived from research on the modified net's ability to reduce impacts to seabirds as well as its effectiveness in catching salmon. Impacts from this reduction in harvest efficiency are reported in the table below on rows labeled "lost revenue."

C. Because of the "fish-on-abundance" fishing window (Item (4)), gillnet pink harvest will be sacrificed. Approximately 89% of pink harvest occurs after the proposed August 23 closure. The loss of that harvest is addressed on rows labeled "lost revenue."

D. Catch figures below are from the 1993 sockeye/pink salmon season. 1993 figures are used because, of recent year data, they most closely represent the magnitude of sockeye and pink harvest expected in 1997. Note that the number of Puget Sound gillnet licenses has fallen 18% from 1,075 in 1993 to 884 in 1996. Therefore, actual 1997-and-beyond impacts to the Puget Sound gillnet fleet can be anticipated to be lower than those estimated below.

E. The average catch per landing in this fishery (1993 numbers) was one hundred twenty-four for sockeye and forty-seven for pink.

F. Value per fish is estimated at $10 for sockeye (1996 dollars, based on sockeye average weight of 6.1 pounds and average price of $1.64 per pound) and $0.61 for pink (based on 1996 average weight of 3.8 pounds and $0.16 per pound).

Analyses are provided for individual boat (equating to individual business?) impacts, fleetwide impacts in Areas 7 and 7A, and fleetwide impacts in Area 7 only.

(Illus. 5)




[Open Style:Columns On]

To summarize, a loss of approximately $446,893 total Puget Sound gillnet-fleetwide sockeye and pink catch revenue (relative to 1993 catch/revenue levels) can be expected in 1997. Losses of approximately $602,512 during even-numbered years and $681,076 during odd-numbered years can be expected annually beginning in 1998 due to implementation of these proposed rules. (Note that pink fisheries occur only in odd-numbered years.) The average individual boat could lose approximately $889 in sockeye and pink odd-year ($780 sockeye even-year) catch revenue due to these items.

VIII. Comparison of Costs for Small Businesses Against the Cost to the Largest 10% of Businesses Within the Industry Required to Comply with the Proposed Rule: Neither costs per employee, costs per hour of labor, nor costs per $100 of sale are different between small businesses and the largest 10% of businesses affected, as noted in the analysis shown in paragraph VII.

IX. Steps Taken by the Agency to Reduce the Costs of the Rule on Small Businesses:

(A) Limited to Puget Sound Area 7 and 7A sockeye and pink fisheries; other fisheries are unaffected by these proposals.

(B) Limited to Puget Sound purse seine and gillnet gear, which represent about half the licensed commercial salmon fishers in this state.

(C) Limited to one area (Area 7) in 1997, two areas (Areas 7 and 7A) in 1998, in order to provide a phase-in period for the requirement.

(D) Rejected option to require a 50-mesh gillnet panel rather than the 20-mesh panel. The 50-mesh panel reduced sockeye catch by approximately 60%.

(E) Management intent is to maximize sockeye harvest by gillnets while minimizing their time on the water. This has the effect of maintaining harvest while reducing both impacts to seabirds and the operating costs necessary to harvest the salmon.

(F) Management intent is to target gillnet fishing during the compressed sockeye fishing period to harvest 41% of the United States nontreaty total allowable sockeye catch so that gillnet catch losses are minimized.

(G) Using the data presented in paragraph VII, one sockeye fishing period can yield approximately $1,200 to the average fisher. This figure represents almost 70% of the cash needed to make the net modification, showing that the average fisher can recover the costs of net modification in just two fishing days.

X. Description of How the Agency has Involved Small Businesses in the Development of the Rule: Since 1993, reduction in seabird entanglements in Washington net fisheries has been a major initiative. The net fishing industry (particularly the Puget Sound Gillnetters Association, Purse Seine Vessel Owners Association, Lummi Fisheries Supply), and individual fishers have participated fully in this effort. These stakeholders have figured prominently in the development and implementation of seabird entanglement-rate monitoring studies and modified gear research, and have helped to formulate regulatory actions to be taken, in consultation with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, United States Bureau of Indian Affairs, Washington Sea Grant, and representatives from environmental groups such as National Audubon Society, Black Hills Audubon Society, Rainier Audubon Society, American Oceans Campaign, and Greenpeace. The proposed actions addressed by this small business economic impact statement have resulted from that cooperation.

Note: The small business economic impact statement covers effects on small businesses of measures taken to reduce seabird mortality only.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared regarding 1997 season changes. Seasonal restrictions are under guidelines proposed by the Pacific Fisheries Management Council, and are not subject to state regulatory change without federal agreement. The only variables are the proposed dates of harvest, and no mitigation is possible because all Washington salmon fisheries are under limited entry. There are no compliance measures required, no costs of compliance, and any revenue loss is a direct consequence of the abundance of salmon, or lack thereof. There is no differential between similar situated licensees. Industry has been fully involved in the federal recommendation process.

Section 201, chapter 403, Laws of 1995, does not apply to this rule adoption. Not hydraulics rules.

WAC 220-47-427 Puget Sound--Beach seine--Emerging commercial fishery--Eligibility--Lawful gear. (1) The Puget Sound beach seine salmon fishery is designated as an emerging commercial fishery for which a vessel is required. An emerging commercial fishery license and an experimental fishery permit are required to participate in this fishery.

(2) The department will issue five Quilcene Bay salmon beach seine experimental fishery permits (Quilcene permits). ((In order to be eligible to apply for a Quilcene permit, a person must be a current holder of a salmon gill net--Puget Sound fishery license or a salmon purse seine fishery license. Only the owner of the license is eligible to apply.))

(3) The following is the selection process the department will use to offer a Quilcene permit.

(a) ((The department will accept applications for a Quilcene permit until 5:00 p.m. on the fourteenth day prior to the opening of the fishery provided for in WAC 220-47-428.)) Persons who held a Quilcene Bay salmon beach seine experimental fishery permit in 1996 will be eligible for a permit in 1997.

(b) The department ((will pool the applications received from gill net fishers and from purse seine fishers separately. The names of two gill net fishers and two purse seine fishers will be drawn randomly. The two pools will be combined and a fifth name will be drawn at random. If there are insufficient names in either pool, the selection will default to the other gear group.

(c) Successful applicants will be notified immediately, and will have seven working days from the date of selection to purchase the license. If the license has not been purchased by the close of business on the seventh working day or the applicant wishes not to be a participant, another name will be drawn from the respective pool or combined pool)) established a pool of applicants by drawing on September 9, 1996. The pool established by this drawing will be maintained to replace any permit(s) which may be voided.

(4) ((Successful applicants)) Permit holders are required to participate in the Quilcene Bay salmon beach seine experimental fishery.

(a) For purposes of this section, "participation" means the holder of the Quilcene permit being aboard the designated vessel in the open fishery area four days each week during the open fishing period, except that while the Fraser Panel of the Pacific Salmon Commission maintains control of fisheries in Areas 7 and 7A "participation" means the holder of the Quilcene permit being aboard the designated vessel in the open fishery area two days each week during the open fishing period.

(b) If the Quilcene permit holder fails to participate, the Quilcene permit issued to that fisher will be void and a new Quilcene permit will be reissued through a random drawing from the applicant pool ((of the voided permit holder)) established in 1996.

(c) The department may require proof of participation by registering with state, federal or tribal officials each day the Quilcene permit holder participates.

(d) Persons who participate, but violate conditions of a Quilcene permit, will have the permit voided and a new Quilcene permit will be reissued through a random drawing from the pool of the voided permit holder. Chum salmon may not be retained by a Quilcene permit holder. Chum salmon must be released alive, or, at the direction of federal or state officials, submitted for broodstock purposes.

(5) Any person who fails to purchase the license, fails to participate, or violates the conditions of a Quilcene permit will have his or her name permanently withdrawn from the pools.

(6) It is unlawful to take salmon with beach seine gear that does not meet the requirements of this subsection.

(a) Beach seine salmon nets in Puget Sound shall not exceed 600 feet in length or 100 meshes in depth, or contain meshes of a size less than 3 inches or greater than 4 inches.
