Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Scup Fishery; 
Reduction of Winter I Commercial Possession Limit

AGENCY:  National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION:  Temporary rule; inseason adjustment.

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

SUMMARY:  NMFS announces the reduction of the scup coastwide commercial 
possession limit from Maine through North Carolina for the Winter I 
period. Regulations governing the scup fishery require publication of 
this notification to advise the coastal states from Maine through North 
Carolina that 80 percent of the commercial quota allocated to the 
Winter I period is projected to be harvested and to announce that the 
possession limit for a Federal vessel permit holder is reduced.

DATES:  Effective April 21, 2010, through April 30, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:  Sarah Heil, Fishery Management 
Specialist, (978) 281-9257.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations governing the scup fishery are 
found at 50 CFR part 648. The regulations at Sec.  648.120(c) require 
the Northeast Regional Administrator to publish annual scup quota 
allocations and the percentage of landings attained during the Winter I 
period at which the possession limits would be reduced. On December 22, 
2009, NMFS published the final rule for the summer flounder, scup, and 
black sea bass specifications in the Federal Register (74 FR 67978). 
This final rule requires NMFS to publish a notification in the Federal 
Register advising and notifying commercial vessels and dealer permit 
holders that the commercial scup possession limit will be reduced once 
80 percent of the Winter I Period quota is projected to be harvested. 
Based upon recent projections, the Regional Administrator anticipates 
that 80 percent of the Federal commercial quota of 4,815,775 lb (2,184 
mt) for the 2010 Winter I period has been harvested. Therefore, to 
maintain the integrity of the 2011 Winter I period quota by avoiding 
quota overages, the commercial scup possession limit will be reduced 
from 30,000 lb (13,608 kg) to 1,000 lb (454 kg) of scup per trip. This 
possession limit will remain in effect until the end of the Winter I 
period (through April 30, 2010) or until the Winter I quota allocation 
has been fully harvested, whichever occurs first.
