ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: This document contains a correction to the final regulations 
that were published in the Federal Register on November 21, 2008. This 
correction revises the amendatory instruction in the final rule to 
accurately reflect paragraph designation in the section on permit fees.

DATES: The amendment to Sec.  665.13 will require approval by the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act 
(PRA). When OMB approval is received, the effective date will be 
announced in the Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brett Wiedoff, NMFS Pacific Islands 
Region, Sustainable Fisheries, 808-944-2272.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The final rule published on November 21, 
2008, designated deepwater shrimp of the genus Heterocarpus as 
management unit species (MUS), and requires Federal permits and data 
reporting for deepwater shrimp fishing in Federal waters of the western 
Pacific (73 FR 70603). Also on November 21, 2008, NMFS published 
another final rule that designated three species of pelagic squid as 
management unit species, and established permitting and reporting 
requirements for squid jig fishing vessels (73 FR 70600). In the 
amendatory instruction for Sec.  665.13 in both final rules, an 
identical paragraph designation was assigned for both new permits fees.
    This correction makes a change to the amendatory instruction in the 
deepwater shrimp final rule to accurately designate the paragraphs in 
Sec.  665.13. This change is necessary to prevent duplicate paragraph 
designation. In the amendatory instruction for Sec.  665.13, the 
phrase, ``...and add a new paragraph (f)(2)(vi)...'', is revised to 
read ``...and add a new paragraph (f)(2)(vii)....''
