Discards are the portion of a catch of fish which is not retained on board during commercial fishing operations and is returned, often dead or dying, to the sea. The practice of discarding is driven by economic and political factors; fish which are discarded are often unmarketable species, individuals which are below minimum landing sizes and catches of species which fishermen are not allowed.

For the purposes of the EDC, groundfish are defined as those species that are in the Pacific Fishery Management Council’s groundfish fishery management plan.

In general terms, groundfish DO NOT include Highly Migratory Species (e.g. tuna, swordfish), Coastal Pelagic Species (e.g. sardines, mackerel), invertebrates (e.g.

crab, shrimp), or salmon. Congress authorized a $46 million buyback program, of which $10 million was appropriated and the remainder to be financed under Title XI.

Demersal fish, also known as groundfish, live and feed on or near the bottom of seas or lakes (the demersal zone). They occupy the sea floors and lake beds, which usually consist of mud, sand, gravel or rocks.

In coastal waters they are found on or near the continental shelf, and in deep waters they are found on or near the continental slope or along the continental rise. Discards represent a significant proportion of global marine catches and are generally thought to constitute waste or suboptimal use of fishery resources.

A number of United Nations resolutions have drawn attention to the need to monitor and reduce discards and unwanted bycatch, in order to assess the impact of discards on marine resources and promote technologies and other means of reducing.

At the June meeting of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council in Sitka, Alaska, the Fisheries Monitoring and Analysis Division (FMA) presented the North Pacific Groundfish and Halibut Observer Program Annual Report to the Council.
