On July 24, 2009, NMFS published the proposed rule for draft Amendment 3 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP. In that proposed rule, the end of the comment period was announced as September 22, 2009, which would allow for a 60–day comment period on the proposed rule. NMFS is now extending the comment period until September 25, 2009 to accommodate two public hearings scheduled on September 22, 2009, and the New England Fishery Management Council meeting September 22 24, 2009. Comments received by NMFS on the proposed rule will help NMFS determine final management measures for small coastal sharks, shortfin mako sharks, and smooth dogfish as described in draft Amendment 3 to the Consolidated HMS FMP. VerDate Nov<24>2008 13:27 Aug 07, 2009 Jkt 217001 DATES: The deadline for comments on the proposed rule for draft Amendment 3 to the Consolidated HMS FMP has been extended from September 22, 2009, as published on July 24, 2009 (74 FR 36892), to 5 p.m. on September 25, 2009.

The Atlantic shark fisheries are managed under the authority of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). The 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP is implemented by regulations at 50 CFR part 635. On July 24, 2009 (74 FR 36892), NMFS published the proposed rule for draft Amendment 3 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP, which proposes management measures to rebuild blacknose sharks, end overfishing of blacknose sharks and shortfin mako sharks, and add smooth dogfish under federal management. In that proposed rule, the end of the comment period was announced as September 22, 2009, which would allow for a 60–day comment period on the proposed rule. Due to the timing of two public hearings on September 22, 2009, and the need for NMFS to consult with the New England Fishery Management Council during their September 2009 meeting, NMFS is extending the comment period to provide additional opportunity for the public, all five Atlantic Regional Fishery Management Councils, the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions, and other interested parties to comment on the proposed rule for draft Amendment 3 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP. These comments will assist NMFS in determining the final management measures to conserve and manage shark resources and fisheries, consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Act and the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP.
