208. Study of contribution of bycatch to charitable organizations.

[no MSFCMA amendment]


The Secretary is to submit to Congress by October 11, 1997, a report on a study of the contribution of bycatch to charitable organizations by commercial fishermen -- how much is contributed, how the fishermen are benefited, and the impact on fisheries of the availability of those benefits. (Possible translation: Does the availability of a charitable deduction induce fishermen to catch fish they can't sell?)
