402. Interjurisdictional Fisheries Act amendments

[IFA section 308]


This section sets out general appropriations for the IFA through FY 2000. It requires the Secretary to submit an update to Congress on the New England FCRI, by January 1, 1997, and annual updates thereafter. The update is to report on the number of multispecies permits, the maximum potential fishing capacity of permitted vessels, the total number of days at sea (DAS) available to such vessels, the total DAS weighted by the maximum potential fishing capacity, the extent to which weighted DAS are used, the reduction of such DAS as a result of the initiative, and an estimate of the conservation benefits directly attributable to the capacity reduction program.
