    For a fishery determined to be overfished or approaching an

or the Secretary, for fisheries under section 302(a)(3), take action to 
end overfishing in the fishery and to implement conservation and

the Council (or the Secretary) must take similar action, within 1 year

remedial actions Councils (or the Secretary) should ensure that such 
actions address the requirements to amend the FMP for each affected 
stock or stock complex to establish a mechanism for specifying and 
actually specify Annual Catch Limits (ACLs) and Accountability Measures 
(AMs) to prevent overfishing by 2010 in accordance with 16 U.S.C.

highly migratory species shortfin mako and the stock is approaching an 
overfished condition.

action in response to the determination, to end overfishing. Such 
action must be submitted to NMFS within 1 year of notification and may 
be in the form of a new fishery management plan (FMP), an FMP 
amendment, or proposed regulations. In addition, for the fisheries 
experiencing overfishing, the responsible Councils (or the Secretary) 
must propose and NMFS must adopt mechanisms in the applicable FMPs for
