Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 219 / Wednesday, November 12, 2008 / Notices et seq.) requires the identification and description of EFH in FMPs and the consideration of actions to ensure the conservation and enhancement of such habitat. The EFH regulatory guidelines (50 CFR 600.815) state that NMFS should periodically review and revise EFH, as warranted, based on available information. Draft Amendment 1 considers alternatives for revising EFH, designating a new Habitat Area of Particular Concern (HAPC) for bluefin tuna spawning areas in the Gulf of Mexico, and analyzes fishing impacts on EFH. Due to the timing of the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council’s meeting at the beginning of December, NMFS is extending the comment period to provide additional opportunity for the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council, and other interested parties to comment on Draft Amendment 1. Copies of Draft Amendment 1 to the Consolidated HMS FMP are available for review (see ADDRESSES). NMFS anticipates completing this document and any related documents by the summer of 2009.
