Catch shares may also facilitate consolidation, lowering the aggregate costs of harvesting the annual quota, and in turn increasing economic efficiency (e.g., Bering Sea crab rationalization (NPFMC, 2016a)).

The depth strata are further segregated by the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council's (NPFMC) Bering Sea Aleutian Islands regulatory area (NPFMC (3)) into survey districts that correspond to the NPFMC subdivisions of western, central, and eastern Aleutian districts and an additional southern Bering Sea survey district that roughly corresponds to the Bogoslof district.

The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) has been unable to prevent the decline of species such as pollock, Pacific cod, halibut or Atka mackerel; NPFMC models project significant drops in catch quotas for most groundfish species in the coming years.
