SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The New England Fishery Management Council's 
Monkfish Committee is holding public hearings for Amendment 5 to the 
Monkfish Fishery Management Plan (FMP). The primary purpose of this 
amendment is to address the new requirements of the Magnuson-Stevens 
Fishery Conservation and Management Reauthorization Act that the 
Council adopt Annual Catch Limits (ACLs) and Accountability Measures 
(AMs) and manage the fishery at long-term sustainable levels. According 
to the Act, these measures must be adopted by 2011. Amendment 5 will 
also include revised biological and management reference points to 
bring the FMP into compliance with revised National Standard 1 
Guidelines. Further, Amendment 5 will specify total allowable catch 
targets and associated days-at-sea (DAS) and trip limits for the 
directed fishery to supplant the current specifications that it adopted 
for the 2007-09 fishing years along with an extension provision which 
will apply for the 2010 fishing year. Amendment 5 contains proposals to 
make modifications to the FMP to improve the Research Set-Aside (RSA) 
Program, to minimize bycatch resulting from trip limit overages, to 
accommodate those vessels fishing in groundfish sectors who would no 
longer be required to use their allocated groundfish DAS, to require 
all limited access monkfish vessels to use a VMS when on a monkfish 
DAS, and to allow the landing of monkfish heads.
    The public hearing document, as well as the draft Amendment 5 
document incorporating an Environmental Assessment, is available on the 
Monkfish page of the Council(s website (www.nefmc.org) or from the 
Council office.

Oversight Committee and Industry Advisory Panel will review the 
comments and develop recommendations to the New England and Mid-
Atlantic Fishery Management Councils on the measures to be submitted as 
final action for Amendment 5. The Councils will make their decisions in 
April, 2010 for submission to the National Marine Fisheries Service 
(NMFS). If approved by NMFS, Amendment 5 will take effect at the start
