OPI is a member of the Groundfish Forum and the Alaska Seafood Cooperative. The Forum worked with the North Pacific Fishery Management Council to develop Amendment 80, which rationalized the non pollock catcher/processor sector and allocated quota to its participants. The allocation of quota and the scientific management of the fishery help ensure the long-term sustainability of the species harvested under Amendment 80. The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) has certified the flatfish, cod, and pollock caught by the Amendment 80 vessels as long-term sustainable. To learn more about our fishery, visit the above sites or BycatchFacts.org.
