Cost Recovery Data Set

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) requires NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to collect fees to recover the “actual costs directly related to the management, data collection, and enforcement” of an Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) program (16 U.S.C. 1854(d)(2)). The law provides that the fee be paid by IFQ allocation shareholders, based on the ex-vessel value of fish landed under the program. Ex-vessel value is calculated as the price paid to the vessel per pound multiplied by the total weight landed. The fee may be up to, but cannot exceed, 3 percent of the ex-vessel value of the fish harvested under the IFQ program.

GARFO currently manages two cost recovery fishery programs which fall under the above MSA requirement - Tilefish IFQ and Scallop IFQ.
