Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 185 / Friday, September 24, 2010 / Rules and Regulations red snapper season, and some vessels would be expected to benefit more than others. Estimates of the average annual net operating revenues per vessel are not available, and estimates of the average annual gross revenues per vessel, provided above, are an inappropriate proxy because gross revenues do not account for operating expenditures. As a result, estimates of the average percentage increase in net operating revenues are not available. It is noted, however, that because these effects would only occur in response to subsequent rule-making, these effects would indirectly result from this emergency rule. Because no direct effects on any small entities have been identified or are expected to occur as a result of this emergency rule, the issue of significant alternatives is not relevant. Pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Assistant Administrative for Fisheries (AA) finds good cause to waive the delay in effectiveness of this final emergency rule. This rule grants NMFS the authority to re-open the Gulf recreational red snapper season. The reopening of the red snapper fishing season would only occur as a result of subsequent rule-making. This emergency rule is purely procedural in nature, and does not impose any new compliance requirements or reporting burdens on the public for which a delay in effectiveness would be necessary. For these reasons, the AA finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness of this rulemaking.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    A final rule was published in the Federal Register on August 30, 
2010 (75 FR 53026) that revises several sections of regulations that 
pertain to the management of Chinook salmon bycatch in the Bering Sea 
subarea of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI). 
This final rule applies to owners and operators of catcher vessels, 
catcher/processors, motherships, inshore processors, and the six 
Western Alaska Community Development Quota (CDQ) Program groups 
participating in the pollock (Theragra chalcogramma) fishery that is 
managed under the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the BSAI.
    The first error is an incorrect table number that exists within a 
table used to determine the amount of Chinook salmon associated with 
each CDQ group. The second and third errors occur in the ``locate and 
remove'' table. The ``locate and remove'' table is used to define 
specific technical changes in regulatory citations. The errors occurred 
in the listing of specific citation changes in this table. These 
changes are unnecessary and need to be removed because the citations 
are identified earlier for removal in the amendatory instructions. 
These errors should be corrected immediately to eliminate potential 
confusion by the regulated public.
    The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good 
cause pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive prior notice and the 
opportunity for public comment because it would be unnecessary and 
contrary to the public interest. These errors should be corrected 
immediately to eliminate potential confusion by the regulated public. 
If the effective date for these corrections is delayed to solicit prior 
public comment, these technical errors will not be corrected by the 
effective date of this final rule, thereby undermining the conservation 
and management objectives of the FMP. The AA further finds, pursuant to 
5 U.S.C 553(d)(3), good cause to waive the thirty (30) day delayed 
effectiveness period for the reasons stated above.
    NMFS is correcting these errors and is not making substantive 
changes to the document in rule FR Doc. 2010-20618 published on August 
30, 2010 (75 FR 53026).

Need for Correction

    Accordingly, the final rule published on August 30, 2010 (75 FR 
53026), to be effective September 29, 2010, is corrected as follows:
    Sec.  679.21 [Corrected]
    1. On page 53061, in Sec.  679.21 (f)(4)(i)(D), in the fourth 
column of the table, under the column heading ``Reduce the B season 
allocation by the sum of the amount of Chinook salmon associated with 
each vessel or CDQ group not participating in an IPA:'', correct the 
reference to ``Table 43d'' to read as ``Table 47d''.
    Sec. Sec.  679.7 and 679.26 [Corrected]
    2. On page 53069, in the ``locate and remove'' table at the bottom 
of the page, under all four columns, remove line seven, that starts 
with, ``Sec.  679.7(d)(18)'' and remove line eleven that starts with 
``Sec.  679.26(c)(1).''
