ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by catcher vessels 60 feet (18.3 meters (m)) length overall (LOA) and longer using pot gear in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI). This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the A season allowance of the 2006 Pacific cod allowable catch (TAC) of Pacific cod specified for catcher vessels using pot gear in the BSAI. DATES: Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), February 3, 2006, though 1200 hrs, A.l.t., June 10, 2006. dsatterwhite on PROD1PC65 with RULES Josh NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the BSAI exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. The A season allowance of the 2006 Pacific cod TAC allocated to catcher vessels using pot gear in the BSAI is 8,234 metric tons as established by the 2005 and 2006 final harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (70 FR 8979, February 24, 2005). See § 679.20(c)(3)(iii), (c)(5), (a)(7)(i)(A), and (a)(7)(i)(C)(1)(iv). In accordance with § 679.20(d)(1)(iii), the Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS, has determined that the A season allowance of the 2006 Pacific cod TAC allocated to catcher vessels using pot gear in the BSAI has been reached. Consequently, NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by catcher vessels 60 feet (18.3 m) LOA and longer using pot gear in the BSAI. Vessels less than 60 feet (18.3 m) LOA using pot gear in the BSAI may continue to participate in the directed fishery for Pacific cod under a separate Pacific cod allocation to catcher vessels less than 60 feet (18.3 m) LOA using hook-and-line or pot gear.

This requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and would delay the closure of Pacific cod by catcher vessels 60 feet (18.3 m) LOA and longer using pot gear in the BSAI. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Addition of White

the Smalltooth Sawfish to the List of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife; Correction

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We, the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), published a final 
rule to add two marine taxa to the List of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife in accordance with the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as 
amended, on November 16, 2005. For one of the two taxa, the white 
abalone (Haliotis sorenseni), we incorrectly published in the List of 
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife at Sec.  17.11(h) that the species 
was Threatened, when it is actually listed as Endangered. We now 
correct that error.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 16, 2005.
