     6  provisions of this section.

     8  department  shall  prepare an economic impact statement that includes at

    13  required for compliance with the proposed rule or regulation;
    14    (c)  a  statement of the probable economic effect of the rule or regu-
    15  lation on the commercial fishing industry, including but not limited  to
    16  loss of income and jobs; and
    17    (d)  a  discussion  of  any  less intrusive or less costly alternative

    19  order  to  mitigate  adverse  economic  impact to the commercial fishing
    20  industry.
