SUMMARY: The fishery for coastal migratory pelagic fish (king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, cero, cobia, little tunny, and, in the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) only, dolphin and bluefish) is managed under the Fishery Management Plan for the Coastal Migratory Pelagic Resources of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic (FMP). The FMP was prepared by the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Fishery Management Councils (Councils) and is implemented under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622. On April 27, 2000, NMFS implemented the final rule (65 FR 16336, March 28, 2000) that divided the Florida west coast subzone of the Gulf E:\FR\FM\04APR1.SGM 04APR1 18416 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 64 / Monday, April 4, 2011 / Rules and Regulations sroberts on DSK69SOYB1PROD with RULES of Mexico eastern zone into northern and southern subzones, and established their separate commercial quotas. The northern Florida west coast subzone is located in Federal waters of the Gulf north of 26°19.8′ N lat. (a line directly west from the Lee/Collier County, FL boundary) and east of 87°31.1′ W long. (a line directly south from the Alabama/ Florida boundary). The quota for the northern subzone is 168,750 lb (76,544 kg) (50 CFR 622.42(c)(1)(ii)). In accordance with 50 CFR 622.43(a), NMFS is required to close any zone to the commercial harvest of king mackerel when the zone’s quota has been reached, or is projected to be reached, by filing a notification with the Office of the Federal Register. NMFS has determined the commercial quota for Gulf group king mackerel in the northern Florida west coast subzone will be reached by April 04, 2011. Accordingly, commercial fishing for Gulf group king mackerel in the northern Florida west coast subzone is closed effective 12:01 a.m., local time, April 04, 2011, until 12:01 a.m., local time, July 1, 2011, the end of the current fishing year. During the closure period, no person aboard a vessel for which a commercial permit for king mackerel has been issued may fish for or retain Gulf group king mackerel in Federal waters of the closed subzone. There is one exception, however, for a person aboard a charter vessel or headboat. A person aboard a vessel that has a valid charter/headboat permit and also has a commercial king mackerel permit for coastal migratory pelagic fish may continue to retain king mackerel in or from the closed subzone under the 2-fish daily bag limit, provided the vessel is operating as a charter vessel or headboat. Charter vessels or headboats that hold a commercial king mackerel permit are considered to be operating as a charter vessel or headboat when they carry a passenger who pays a fee or when more than three persons are aboard, including operator and crew. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, (AA), finds the need to immediately implement this commercial closure constitutes good cause to waive the requirements to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth in 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as such procedures would be unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Such procedures would be unnecessary because the rule VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:24 Apr 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 itself already has been subject to notice and comment, and all that remains is to notify the public of the closure. Allowing prior notice and opportunity for public comment is contrary to the public interest because of the need to immediately implement this action to protect the fishery resource because the capacity of the commercial fleet allows for rapid harvest of the quota. Prior notice and opportunity for public comment would require time and potentially result in a harvest well in excess of the established quota. For the aforementioned reasons, the AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This action is taken under 50 CFR 622.43(a) and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: March 30, 2011.

These actions apply to vessels permitted in the Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Angling category and Charter/Headboat category (when fishing recreationally for BFT).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations implemented under the authority of the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act (16 U.S.C. 971 et seq.) and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act; 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.) governing the harvest of BFT by persons and vessels subject to U.S. jurisdiction are found at 50 CFR part 635. Section 635.27 subdivides the U.S. BFT quota recommended by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) among the various domestic fishing categories, per the allocations established in the 2006 Consolidated Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan (2006 Consolidated HMS FMP) (71 FR 58058, October 2, 2006). The 2011 BFT fishing year, which is managed on a calendar-year basis and subject to an annual calendar-year quota, began January 1, 2011. The Angling category season opened January 1, 2011, and continues through December 31, 2011. Currently, the default Angling category daily retention limit of one school, large school, or small medium BFT (measuring 27 to less than 73 inches (68.5 to less than 185 cm)) applies (§ 635.23(b)(2)). An annual limit of one large medium or giant BFT (73 inches or greater) per vessel also applies (§ 635.23(b)(1)). These retention limits apply to HMS Angling and HMS Charter/Headboat category permitted vessels (when fishing recreationally for BFT). In order to implement the 2010 ICCAT-recommended baseline annual U.S. BFT quota, NMFS has published a proposed rule that would modify the U.S. BFT quota and base subquotas for all domestic fishing categories, and establish BFT quota specifications for 2011 (76 FR 13583, March 14, 2011). Until the final rule is effective (likely June 2011), the BFT base quotas codified at § 635.27(a) remain in effect. The currently codified Angling category quota is 187.6 mt (97.7 mt for school BFT, 85.6 mt for large school/small medium BFT, and 4.3 mt for large medium/giant BFT). E:\FR\FM\04APR1.SGM 04APR1

SUMMARY: NMFS closes the northern Florida west coast subzone to the 
commercial harvest of king mackerel in or from the exclusive economic 
zone (EEZ). This closure is necessary to protect the Gulf king mackerel 
resource.

DATES: This rule is effective 12:01 a.m., local time, April 04, 2011, 
until 12:01 a.m., local time, July 1, 2011, unless changed by further 
notice in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The fishery for coastal migratory pelagic 
fish (king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, cero, cobia, little tunny, and, 
in the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) only, dolphin and bluefish) is managed 
under the Fishery Management Plan for the Coastal Migratory Pelagic 
Resources of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic (FMP). The FMP was 
prepared by the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Fishery Management 
Councils (Councils) and is implemented under the authority of the 
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-
Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622.
    On April 27, 2000, NMFS implemented the final rule (65 FR 16336, 
March 28, 2000) that divided the Florida west coast subzone of the Gulf

[[Page 18416]]

of Mexico eastern zone into northern and southern subzones, and 
established their separate commercial quotas. The northern Florida west 
coast subzone is located in Federal waters of the Gulf north of 
26[deg]19.8' N lat. (a line directly west from the Lee/Collier County, 
FL boundary) and east of 87[deg]31.1' W long. (a line directly south 
from the Alabama/Florida boundary). The quota for the northern subzone 
is 168,750 lb (76,544 kg) (50 CFR 622.42(c)(1)(ii)).
    In accordance with 50 CFR 622.43(a), NMFS is required to close any 
zone to the commercial harvest of king mackerel when the zone's quota 
has been reached, or is projected to be reached, by filing a 
notification with the Office of the Federal Register. NMFS has 
determined the commercial quota for Gulf group king mackerel in the 
northern Florida west coast subzone will be reached by April 04, 2011. 
Accordingly, commercial fishing for Gulf group king mackerel in the 
northern Florida west coast subzone is closed effective 12:01 a.m., 
local time, April 04, 2011, until 12:01 a.m., local time, July 1, 2011, 
the end of the current fishing year.
    During the closure period, no person aboard a vessel for which a 
commercial permit for king mackerel has been issued may fish for or 
retain Gulf group king mackerel in Federal waters of the closed 
subzone. There is one exception, however, for a person aboard a charter 
vessel or headboat. A person aboard a vessel that has a valid charter/
headboat permit and also has a commercial king mackerel permit for 
coastal migratory pelagic fish may continue to retain king mackerel in 
or from the closed subzone under the 2-fish daily bag limit, provided 
the vessel is operating as a charter vessel or headboat. Charter 
vessels or headboats that hold a commercial king mackerel permit are 
considered to be operating as a charter vessel or headboat when they 
carry a passenger who pays a fee or when more than three persons are 
aboard, including operator and crew.

Classification

    This action responds to the best available information recently 
obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, 
NOAA, (AA), finds the need to immediately implement this commercial 
closure constitutes good cause to waive the requirements to provide 
prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the 
authority set forth in 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as such procedures would be 
unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Such procedures would 
be unnecessary because the rule itself already has been subject to 
notice and comment, and all that remains is to notify the public of the 
closure.
    Allowing prior notice and opportunity for public comment is 
contrary to the public interest because of the need to immediately 
implement this action to protect the fishery resource because the 
capacity of the commercial fleet allows for rapid harvest of the quota. 
Prior notice and opportunity for public comment would require time and 
potentially result in a harvest well in excess of the established 
quota.
    For the aforementioned reasons, the AA also finds good cause to 
waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness of this action under 5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(3).
    This action is taken under 50 CFR 622.43(a) and is exempt from 
review under Executive Order 12866.
