The Seafood Harvesters of America (the Harvesters) is a nationwide commercial fishermen's association that represents 17 commercial fishing organizations from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico to New England[1]. We are writing to you today regarding the Coast Guard's development of an alternate safety compliance program (ASCP) under section 4503(d) of 46 United States Code. Section 4503 was amended in 2010 to require the Coast Guard to develop an ASCP in cooperation with the commercial fishing vessel industry. Section 4503(d) requires the Coast Guard to prescribe this program by no later than January 1, 2017, and requires commercial fishing vessels, fish processing vessels, and fish tender vessels subject to that subsection to comply with the ASCP by January 1, 2020. This provides the commercial fishing vessel industry three years to make the required physical changes to our vessels to comply with this program. While section 4503(d) was amended during the past year, the above basic parameters have remained in place for almost six years. We are distressed by the lack of outreach by the Coast Guard given the above impending deadlines.
