Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands; Final 2011 and 2012 Harvest Specifications for Groundfish; Correction, 17034-17036 [2011-7241]

Download as PDF 17034 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 59 / Monday, March 28, 2011 / Rules and Regulations by U.S. Coast Guard Notice to Mariners broadcasts on Channel 16 VHF–FM and 2182 kHz. Classification The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds that good cause exists for this notification to be issued without affording prior notice and opportunity for public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) because such notification would be impracticable. As previously noted, actual notice of the regulatory actions was provided to fishers through telephone hotline and radio notification. These actions comply with the requirements of the annual management measures for ocean salmon fisheries (75 FR 24482, May 5, 2010), the West Coast Salmon Plan, and regulations implementing the West Coast Salmon Plan 50 CFR 660.409 and 660.411. Prior notice and opportunity for public comment was impracticable because NMFS and the state agencies had insufficient time to provide for prior notice and the opportunity for public comment between the time the fishery catch and effort data were collected to determine the extent of the fisheries, and the time the fishery modifications had to be implemented in order to ensure that fisheries are managed based on the best available scientific information, thus allowing fishers access to the available fish at the time the fish were available while ensuring that quotas are not exceeded. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness required under U.S.C. 553(d)(3), as a delay in effectiveness of these actions would allow fishing at levels inconsistent with the goals of the Salmon Fishery Management Plan and the current management measures. These actions are authorized by 50 CFR 660.409 and 660.411 and are exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: March 23, 2011.

ACTION: Final rule; closures; correction. AGENCY: The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is correcting a final rule that published on March 1, 2011, implementing the final 2011 and 2012 harvest specifications and prohibited species catch allowances for the groundfish fishery of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI). Two tables within the document contained errors. DATES: Effective from 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), March 1, 2011, through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2012. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steve Whitney, 907–586–7269. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Need for Correction NMFS published the Final 2011 and 2012 BSAI Harvest Specifications in the Federal Register on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 (76 FR 11139). Tables providing information on 2011 and 2012 Directed Fishing Closures (Table 10) and the Final 2011 and 2012 American Fisheries Act Catcher Vessel BSAI Groundfish Sideboard Limits (Table 13) contained a number of minor errors. In Table 10 on page 11154, NMFS inadvertently listed an incidental catch allowance (ICA) of rock sole at ‘‘10,000’’ metric tons (mt), instead of the correct number of ‘‘5,000’’ mt. In addition, Federal Register formatting issues caused misalignment in Tables 10 and 13 and affected the information contained in those tables. In Table 10 on page 11154, the Federal Register listed the phrase ‘‘ICA rock sole’’ in the ‘‘sector’’ column rather than the ‘‘species’’ column. In Table 13 on page 11156, the Federal Register shifted seven lines upward by one row in the following columns: ‘‘Ratio of 1995–1997 TAC’’; ‘‘2011 initial TAC’’; ‘‘2011 AFA catcher vessel sideboard limits’’; ‘‘2012 initial TAC’’; and ‘‘2012 AFA catcher vessel sideboard limits’’. As a result of this error, Table 13 contains incorrect information on Pacific cod sideboard limits for the following gears and seasons: ‘‘Jig gear’’; ‘‘Hook and line Catcher Vessels (CV)’’ for ‘‘Jan 1–Jun 10’’; ‘‘Pot gear CV’’ for ‘‘Jan 1–Jun 10’’; and ‘‘Trawl gear CV’’ for ‘‘Jan 20–Apr 1’’. Table 13 also contains incorrect information on Atka mackerel sideboard limits for the following areas and seasons: ‘‘Eastern AI/BS’’ for ‘‘Jan 1–Jun 10’’; ‘‘Central AI’’ for ‘‘Jan 1–Jun 10’’; and ‘‘Central AI’’ for ‘‘Jan 1–Jun 10’’. NMFS’ corrections to Table 10 and Table 13 are listed below. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This correction notice makes only minor changes and does not change operating practices in the fisheries. Corrections should be made as soon as possible to avoid confusion for participants in the fisheries. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment.

Groundfish; Correction

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

ACTION: Final rule; closures; correction.

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

SUMMARY: The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is correcting a 
final rule that published on March 1, 2011, implementing the final 2011 
and 2012 harvest specifications and prohibited species catch allowances 
for the groundfish fishery of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands 
Management Area (BSAI). Two tables within the document contained 
errors.

DATES: Effective from 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), March 1, 
2011, through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steve Whitney, 907-586-7269.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Need for Correction

    NMFS published the Final 2011 and 2012 BSAI Harvest Specifications 
in the Federal Register on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 (76 FR 11139). Tables 
providing information on 2011 and 2012 Directed Fishing Closures (Table 
10) and the Final 2011 and 2012 American Fisheries Act Catcher Vessel 
BSAI Groundfish Sideboard Limits (Table 13) contained a number of minor 
errors. In Table 10 on page 11154, NMFS inadvertently listed an 
incidental catch allowance (ICA) of rock sole at ``10,000'' metric tons 
(mt), instead of the correct number of ``5,000'' mt. In addition, 
Federal Register formatting issues caused misalignment in Tables 10 and 
13 and affected the information contained in those tables. In Table 10 
on page 11154, the Federal Register listed the phrase ``ICA rock sole'' 
in the ``sector'' column rather than the ``species'' column. In Table 
13 on page 11156, the Federal Register shifted seven lines upward by 
one row in the following columns: ``Ratio of 1995-1997 TAC''; ``2011 
initial TAC''; ``2011 AFA catcher vessel sideboard limits''; ``2012 
initial TAC''; and ``2012 AFA catcher vessel sideboard limits''. As a 
result of this error, Table 13 contains incorrect information on 
Pacific cod sideboard limits for the following gears and seasons: ``Jig 
gear''; ``Hook and line Catcher Vessels (CV)'' for ``Jan 1-Jun 10''; 
``Pot gear CV'' for ``Jan 1-Jun 10''; and ``Trawl gear CV'' for ``Jan 
20-Apr 1''. Table 13 also contains incorrect information on Atka 
mackerel sideboard limits for the following areas and seasons: 
``Eastern AI/BS'' for ``Jan 1-Jun 10''; ``Central AI'' for ``Jan 1-Jun 
10''; and ``Central AI'' for ``Jan 1-Jun 10''. NMFS' corrections to 
Table 10 and Table 13 are listed below.
    The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good 
cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity 
for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the 
public interest. This correction notice makes only minor changes and 
does not change operating practices in the fisheries. Corrections 
should be made as soon as possible to avoid confusion for participants 
in the fisheries.
    The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the 
effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is 
based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and 
opportunity for public comment.
