Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 25570 [E6-6487]

Download as PDF 25570 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 83 / Monday, May 1, 2006 / Notices full Council concludes that the merits of such exemptions justify them, given the potential importance of such measures to effort control. There are 37 members of the approved Sector. The GB cod TAC calculation is based upon the historic cod landings of the participating Sector vessels, using all gear. The allocation percentage is calculated by dividing the sum of total landings of GB cod by Sector members for the FY 1996 through 2001, by the sum of the total accumulated landings of GB cod harvested by all NE multispecies vessels for the same time period (113,278,842 lb (51,383.9 mt)). The resulting number is 10.03 percent (of the overall GB cod TAC). Based upon these 37 prospective Sector members, the Sector TAC of GB cod is 615 mt (10.03 percent times the fishery-wide GB cod target TAC of 6,132 mt). The fishery-wide GB cod target TAC of 6,132 mt is less than the GB cod target TAC proposed for FY 2006 (7,458 mt; 71 FR 12665; March 13, 2006) because the 7,458 mt included Canadian catch. That is, the fishery-wide GB cod target TAC of 6,132 mt was calculated by subtracting the GB cod TAC specified for Canada under the U.S./Canada Resource Sharing Understanding for FY 2006 (1,326 mt) from the overall GB cod target TAC of 7,458 mt proposed by the Council for FY 2006. Letters of Authorization will be issued to members of the Sector exempting them, conditional upon their compliance with the Sector Agreement, from the requirements of the GOM cod trip limit exemption program, limits on the number of hooks, the GB Seasonal Closure Area, and the 72-hour observer notification requirement for trips to the U.S./Canada Management Area, as specified in §§ 648.86(b), 648.80(a)(4)(v), 648.81(g), and 648.85(a)(3)(viii), respectively. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: April 26, 2006. James P. Burgess, Acting Deputy Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service.
