ACTION: Notice of cancellation of Federal moratorium. AGENCY: SUMMARY: NMFS announces the cancellation of the Federal moratorium on fishing for tautog in the State waters of New Jersey. NMFS canceled the moratorium, as required by the Atlantic Coastal Fisheries Cooperative Management Act (Atlantic Coastal Act), based on the determination that New Jersey is now in compliance with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s (Commission) Tautog Interstate Fishery Management Plan (Plan).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Tautog (Tautoga onitis), often known by the common name ‘‘blackfish,’’ is a coastal fish species ranging from Nova Scotia to South Carolina, but most abundant from the southern Gulf of Maine (lower Massachusetts Bay and southern Cape Cod Bay) to Chesapeake Bay. The Commission manages this species according to its Tautog Plan. The Commission’s Tautog Plan can be located at http://www.asmfc.org, (select ‘‘Interstate Fishery Management,’’ then select ‘‘Tautog.’’). On February 7, 2008, the Commission voted the State of New Jersey out of compliance with the Commission’s Tautog Plan. Specifically, the Commission found that New Jersey had not implemented management measures to achieve the required 25.6 percent reduction in tautog exploitation as was required by the Tautog Plan. The Commission forwarded the findings of their vote on February 7, 2008, in a formal non-compliance referral letter PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) received on February 11, 2008. On March 10, 2008, upon a delegation of authority from the Secretary, NMFS completed its independent review of the Commission’s findings and NMFS determined that the State of New Jersey was not in compliance with the Commission’s Tautog Plan and that the measures New Jersey failed to implement and enforce are necessary for the conservation of the tautog fishery. New Jersey was notified by letter on March 11, 2008, that NMFS declared a Federal moratorium on fishing for, possession of, and landing of tautog by the recreational and commercial fishermen in New Jersey state waters effective April 1, 2008, if New Jersey has not complied with the Commission’s Tautog Plan by that date. Details were provided in a Federal Register notice published on March 14, 2008 (73 FR 13864), and are not repeated here. Activities Pursuant to the Atlantic Coastal Act The Atlantic Coastal Act specifies that, if, after a moratorium is declared with respect to a State, the Secretary is notified by the Commission that it is withdrawing the determination of noncompliance, the Secretary shall immediately determine whether the State is in compliance with the applicable plan. If the state is determined to be in compliance, the moratorium shall be terminated. On March 26, 2008, NMFS received a letter from the Commission that New Jersey has taken corrective action to comply with the Tautog Plan, and that the Commission has withdrawn its determination of noncompliance. Cancellation of the Moratorium Based on the Commission’s March 26, 2008, letter, information received from the State of New Jersey, and NMFS review of New Jersey’s revised tautog regulations, which achieved the required 25.6–percent reduction in tautog exploitation as was required by the Tautog Plan, NMFS concurs with the Commission’s determination that New Jersey is now in compliance with the Tautog Plan. Therefore, the moratorium on fishing for, possession of, and landing of tautog by the recreational and commercial fishermen within New Jersey waters is canceled. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 5101 et seq.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jane DiCosimo, Council staff; telephone: (907) 271–2809. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NonTarget Species Committee will consider possible priorities for breaking out different groups from the ‘‘other species’’ complexes in the BSAI and GOA groundfish fishery management plans. The need to set these priorities is to take quicker action for more vulnerable groups. The committee and have expressed concern that analyzing a broader set of alternatives (which PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18261 addresses sharks, squids, sculpins, and octopuses in the GOA; sharks, skates, sculpins, and octopuses in the BSAI; and possibly grenadiers in the GOA and BSAI) in one analysis may result in an unmanageable decision making document. Management of these species groups (plus additional multiple subarea, sub-allocation, and seasonal apportionments) poses numerous management and regulatory difficulties and may result in unintended consequences on fishing fleets. The proposed priorities for action include: (1) move BSAI and/or GOA squid into the forage fish category; (2) move BSAI and/or GOA octopus into the forage fish category or remove it from the FMPs and defer management to the State of Alaska; (3) delete an alternative to add grenadiers to the TAC specification process; and (4) separate the proposed alternatives into distinct BSAI and GOA amendment packages. The Committee will develop recommendations on these priority actions. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the Council’s intent to take final action to address the emergency. Special Accommodations These meetings are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to Gail Bendixen, (907) 271–2809, at least 5 working days prior to the meeting date. Dated: March 31, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Tautog (Tautoga onitis), often known by the common name 
``blackfish,'' is a coastal fish species ranging from Nova Scotia to 
South Carolina, but most abundant from the southern Gulf of Maine 
(lower Massachusetts Bay and southern Cape Cod Bay) to Chesapeake Bay. 
The Commission manages this species according to its Tautog Plan. The 
Commission's Tautog Plan can be located at http://www.asmfc.org, 
(select ``Interstate Fishery Management,'' then select ``Tautog.'').
    On February 7, 2008, the Commission voted the State of New Jersey 
out of compliance with the Commission's Tautog Plan. Specifically, the 
Commission found that New Jersey had not implemented management 
measures to achieve the required 25.6 percent reduction in tautog 
exploitation as was required by the Tautog Plan. The Commission 
forwarded the findings of their vote on February 7, 2008, in a formal 
non-compliance referral letter that the Secretary of Commerce 
(Secretary) received on February 11, 2008.
    On March 10, 2008, upon a delegation of authority from the 
Secretary, NMFS completed its independent review of the Commission's 
findings and NMFS determined that the State of New Jersey was not in 
compliance with the Commission's Tautog Plan and that the measures New 
Jersey failed to implement and enforce are necessary for the 
conservation of the tautog fishery. New Jersey was notified by letter 
on March 11, 2008, that NMFS declared a Federal moratorium on fishing 
for, possession of, and landing of tautog by the recreational and 
commercial fishermen in New Jersey state waters effective April 1, 
2008, if New Jersey has not complied with the Commission's Tautog Plan 
by that date. Details were provided in a Federal Register notice

Activities Pursuant to the Atlantic Coastal Act

    The Atlantic Coastal Act specifies that, if, after a moratorium is 
declared with respect to a State, the Secretary is notified by the 
Commission that it is withdrawing the determination of noncompliance, 
the Secretary shall immediately determine whether the State is in 
compliance with the applicable plan. If the state is determined to be 
in compliance, the moratorium shall be terminated. On March 26, 2008, 
NMFS received a letter from the Commission that New Jersey has taken 
corrective action to comply with the Tautog Plan, and that the 
Commission has withdrawn its determination of noncompliance.

Cancellation of the Moratorium

    Based on the Commission's March 26, 2008, letter, information 
received from the State of New Jersey, and NMFS review of New Jersey's 
revised tautog regulations, which achieved the required 25.6-percent 
reduction in tautog exploitation as was required by the Tautog Plan, 
NMFS concurs with the Commission's determination that New Jersey is now 
in compliance with the Tautog Plan. Therefore, the moratorium on 
fishing for, possession of, and landing of tautog by the recreational 
and commercial fishermen within New Jersey waters is canceled.
