State waters include all waters within three nautical miles of shore. This report reviews the harvest and management of these fisheries since their inception, 1995 for sablefish and 1994 for black rockfish, through the 2005 season. Harvest and effort for the vessel length and gear restriction zones of the central Aleutian Islands near Adak Island for vessels targeting Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus, and rockfish in state waters are summarized. For all other groundfish fisheries that occur within three nautical miles of shore in the Bering Sea-Aleutian Islands Area, the state adopts the seasons, bycatch limits and allowable gear types in the adjacent Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and promulgated by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), except where Board of Fisheries regulations take precedent. ADF & G issues an emergency order (global EO) on an annual basis to establish the commercial parallel groundfish seasons, bycatch limits and gear types in state waters for those fisheries not actively managed by the State of Alaska to coincide with federal regulations in waters of the adjacent EEZ, 3 to 200 nautical miles offshore. This report summarizes the harvest of groundfish from state waters of the Bering Sea - Aleutian Islands Area in those parallel fisheries from 1995 to 2005.
