Alaska Community Quota Entity (CQE) Program

OMB 0648-0665

OMB 0648-0665

Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) Amendment 102 would create a Community Quota Entity (CQE) Program in International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) halibut regulatory area 4B and sablefish Aleutian Islands regulatory area similar to the existing CQE Program in the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This program would allow an eligible community to establish a designated non-profit organization as a CQE to purchase halibut catcher vessel quota share (QS) assigned to Area 4B, and sablefish QS assigned to the Aleutian Islands. The CQE is the holder of the QS and would assign the resulting annual halibut and sablefish IFQ to participants according to defined CQE Program provisions. This program structure creates a permanent asset for the community to use by promoting community access to QS to generate participation in, and fishery revenues from, the commercial halibut and sablefish fisheries. Change request for Application for Transfer between IFQ and GAF (Guided Angler Fish) by a Community Quota Entity (CQE) is revised by adding a block regarding price of quota and broker's fee.
