ACTIONS TAKEN: Commercial troll Chinook salmon quotas were adjusted by rolling over quota remaining from the prior quota as follows:
(1) The US/Canada Border to Cape Falcon troll Chinook quota for the season beginning July 1 was increased from 14,700 Chinook with a subarea restriction of 6,100 in the areas North of the Queets River to 19,300 with a subarea restriction of 6,600 in the areas North of the Queets River. Open period limits and dates remain as listed in the adopted regulations.
(2) The Humbug Mt. to OR/CA Border (OR-KMZ) July troll Chinook quota was increased from 3,000 to 4,782. Fishery remains limited by single daily landing and possession limit of 30 Chinook.
(3) The OR/CA Border to Horse Mt., CA (CA-KMZ) July troll Chinook quota was increased from 2,000 to 2,587. This season does not open until July 15, and is limited by a single daily landing and possession limit of 20 Chinook.
RATIONALE: Rollover provisions to the regulations provide that, in specified seasons, remaining quota from one season may be moved forward to the next season provided that the projected impacts to management critical stocks are not exceeded in the "rollover". If an earlier rollover eligible season exceeded its allowable quota, then an impact neutral equivalent may also be deducted from the following season. In the three rollovers in this management action, the North of Falcon fishery impact neutral transfer of 5,263 Chinook from the May-June fishery to the July-September fishery resulted in a net increase of 4,600 Chinook. The OR-KMZ impact neutral transfer of 2,475 from the June season resulted in a net increase to the July season of 1,782 Chinook. And the CA-KMZ impact neutral transfer of 387 from the June fishery to the July fishery resulted in a net increase of 547 Chinook.
