FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Clark or Karyl Brewster-Geisz by phone: 301–713–2347 or by fax: 301– 713–1917. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Atlantic shark fishery is managed under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). NMFS recently finalized a Consolidated Highly PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan (HMS FMP) that consolidated and replaced previous FMPs for Atlantic Billfish and Atlantic Tunas, Swordfish, and Sharks (October 2, 2006; 71 FR 58058). The HMS FMP is implemented by regulations at 50 CFR part 635. On October 5, 2006 (71 FR 58778), NMFS published a proposed rule that requested comments on the draft EA and scheduled three public hearings throughout October 2006 to receive comments from fishery participants and other members of the public regarding the first 2007 fishing season for Atlantic sharks. Based on late dealer reports that may substantially change landings estimates of large and small coastal sharks in the Gulf of Mexico during the first trimester of 2006, NMFS is extending the comment period on this proposed rule. NMFS is still updating the landings estimates and will release them in a future Federal Register notice. At this time, NMFS does not expect the landings estimates or the proposed measures to change substantially in the South Atlantic or North Atlantic regions. In order to incorporate these updated landings and to provide adequate opportunities for public comment by constituents, NMFS is extending the public comment period on the proposed rule and draft EA to 5 p.m., November 13, 2006.
