SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The original notice published in the Federal Register on February 25, 2005 (70 FR 9273). This notice serves as a correction to the address of one of the workshops. The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions, have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. SEDAR typically includes three workshops: (1) Data Workshop, (2) Assessment Workshop, and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop and the Assessment Workshop is a stock assessment report, which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment report is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The products of the Review Workshop are a Consensus Summary Report, which reports Panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data, and an Advisory Report, which summarizes the status of the stock. Participants for SEDAR workshops are appointed by the Regional Fishery Management Councils. Participants include data collectors, database managers, stock assessment scientists, biologists, fisheries researchers, fishermen, environmentalists, Council members, international experts, and staff of Regional Councils, Interstate Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The Review Workshop for SEDAR 8 will review the following assessments: Caribbean yellowtail snapper, Caribbean spiny lobster, and Gulf of Mexico South Atlantic spiny lobster. The Review workshop was originally scheduled to be held at the Best Western, San Juan Airport. That location has changed to the Caribe Hilton, San Juan, PR. The workshop schedule is as follows: May 16, 2005, 1 p.m.–10 p.m. VerDate jul<14>2003 18:18 May 06, 2005 Jkt 205001 May 17 19, 2005, 8 a.m.–10 p.m. May 20, 2005, 8 a.m.–11 a.m. Please note that during the scheduled times there will be a mixture of workshop plenary sessions and dedicated group working sessions.
