SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) will convene its Charterboat AP to review the Draft Amendment to the FMPs for Reef Fish (Amendment 25) and Coastal Migratory Pelagics (Amendment 17) for extending the Charter Vessel/Headboat Permit Moratorium. Amendments establishing the charter vessel/headboat permit moratorium for the CMP fishery and the Reef Fish fishery were approved by NOAA Fisheries on May 6, 2003, and implemented on June 16, 2003 (68 FR 26280). The intended effect of these Amendments was to cap the number of for-hire vessels operating in these two fisheries at the current level (as of March 29, 2001) while the Council evaluated whether limited access programs were needed to constrain effort. In this amendment, the Council is considering allowing the permit to expire on June 16, 2006 or extending the moratorium on for-hire Reef Fish and CMP permits for a finite period of time or indefinitely. Listening stations are available at the following locations: The Gulf Council office (see ADDRESSES), and the following NMFS offices: Galveston, TX 4700 Avenue U, Galveston, TX 77551, Rhonda O’Toole, 409–766–3500; St. Petersburg, FL 263 13th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701, Andy Strelcheck, 727–824–5374; Pascagoula, MS 3209 Frederic Street, Pascagoula, MS 39567, Cheryl Hinkel, 228–769–9200; and Panama City, FL 3500 Delwood Beach Road, Panama City, FL 32408, Bob Allman, 850–324–6541.
