50 CFR 222.404 - Observer program sampling.
(1) The requirements to obtain the best available scientific information;
(4) The need to minimize costs and avoid duplication, where practicable.
(b) Consistent with 16 U.S.C. 1881(b), vessels where the facilities for accommodating an observer or carrying out observer functions are so inadequate or unsafe (due to size or quality of equipment, for example) that the health or safety of the observer or the safe operation of the vessel would be jeopardized, would not be required to take observers under this rule.
