NMFS proposes to implement management measures described in a framework action to the Fishery Management Plan for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico (FMP), as prepared by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council).

This final rule allows transfer of Atlantic migratory group Spanish mackerel caught in excess of the trip limit with gillnet gear from one vessel with a Federal Spanish mackerel commercial permit to another vessel with a Federal Spanish mackerel commercial permit that has not yet harvested the trip limit; allows the receiving vessel involved in a Spanish mackerel transfer-at-sea to have three gillnets onboard instead of two; and modifies the commercial trip limits for king mackerel in the Florida east coast subzone. This rule also implements an administrative change to correct an inadvertent error in a prior rulemaking unrelated to this Framework Action.
