Download as PDF 5012 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 20 / Tuesday, January 31, 2006 / Rules and Regulations require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. § 165.T17–023 Safety Zone; Alaska, South Central, Cook Inlet, Kamishak Bay. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. (a) Description. This safety zone consists of the area located within 1 nautical mile of St. Augustine Island. (b) Enforcement periods. The safety zone in this section will be enforced from January 18, 2006 through September 1, 2006. (c) Regulations. (1) The Captain of the Port and the Duty Officer at Marine Safety Office, Anchorage, Alaska can be contacted at telephone number (907) 271–6700. (2) The Captain of the Port may authorize and designate any Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officer to act on his behalf in enforcing the safety zone. (3) The general regulations governing safety zones contained in § 165.23 apply. No person or vessel may enter or remain in this safety zone without first obtaining permission from the Captain of the Port or his on-scene representative.

The FMP was prepared by the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Fishery Management Councils (Councils) and is implemented under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622. Based on the Councils’ recommended total allowable catch and the allocation ratios in the FMP, on April 30, 2001 (66 FR 17368, March 30, 2001) NMFS implemented a commercial quota of 2.25 million lb (1.02 million kg) for the PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 $19,600 26,400 33,200 40,000 46,800 53,600 60,400 67,200 6,800 Alaska $24,500 33,000 41,500 50,000 58,500 67,000 75,500 84,000 8,500 Hawaii $22,540 30,360 38,180 46,000 53,820 61,640 69,460 77,280 7,820 eastern zone (Florida) of the Gulf migratory group of king mackerel.

In accordance with 50 CFR 622.44(a)(2)(i), beginning on February 1, if less than 75 percent of the Florida east coast subzone quota has been harvested by that date, king mackerel in or from that subzone may be possessed on board or landed from a permitted vessel in amounts not exceeding 75 fish per day. The 75–fish daily trip limit will continue until a closure of the subzone’s fishery has been effected or the fishing year ends on March 31, 2006. NMFS has determined that 75 percent of the quota for Gulf group king mackerel for vessels using hook-andline gear in the Florida east coast subzone will not be reached before February 1, 2006. Accordingly, a 75–fish trip limit applies to vessels in the commercial hook-and-line fishery for king mackerel in or from the EEZ in the Florida east coast subzone effective 12:01 a.m., local time, February 1, 2006. The 75–fish trip limit will remain in effect until the fishery closes or until the end of the current fishing season (March E:\FR\FM\31JAR1.SGM 31JAR1
