Amendment) to the Red Drum, Reef Fish Resources, Shrimp, and Coral and 
Coral Reefs Fishery Management Plans for the Gulf of Mexico (FMPs),

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 29, 2011, a final rule was published to implement the 
Generic ACL Amendment to the FMPs (76 FR 82044). In part, that final 
rule removed

species, including octocorals, not currently in need of Federal 
management from the FMPs. After the regulations implementing the 
Generic ACL Amendment became effective on January 30, 2012, NMFS 
determined that the FMP title for the Gulf Coral and Coral Reefs FMP 
was inadvertently removed from Table 1 in Sec.  622.1. The intent was 
to remove octocoral species, which are not currently in need of Federal 
management, from the FMP, but not to change Table 1 in Sec.  622.1.

Need for Correction

    As published, the final rule contains an error in the FMP table in 
the regulatory text. In Sec.  622.1, paragraph (b), Table 1, the row 
titled, ``FMP for Coral and Coral Reefs of the Gulf of Mexico'' was 
incorrectly removed. This action will reinstate that row into Table 1 
in Sec.  622.1. All other information remains unchanged and will not be 
repeated in this correction.

Classification

    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Assistant Administrator for 
Fisheries, NOAA, finds good cause to waive prior notice and opportunity 
for additional public comment for this action because delaying this 
action is unnecessary. This correcting amendment includes a minor, non-
substantive change to regulatory text to reinstate a row of text into 
the FMP table in 50 CFR part 622 that was incorrectly removed. This 
amendment does not modify, add or remove any rights, privileges or 
obligations of any individuals. Rather, the removal of an FMP in a 
table published in the final rule was an error. Reinserting this row 
into the table, as published in this correcting amendment, will 
alleviate unnecessary confusion for participants in Gulf fisheries. No 
adverse affect on fishing stocks will result from this amendment. 
Because this is a minor technical amendment that is administrative in 
nature and in which the public would have little interest, public 
comment is unnecessary.
    For the same reasons, the Assistant Administrator also finds good 
cause, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), to waive the 30-day delay in 
effective date for this correcting amendment. This revision is a minor, 
non-substantive change and does not change operating practices in Gulf 
fisheries. The immediate publication of this correcting amendment will 
alleviate potential confusion for Gulf fishermen.
    Because prior notice and opportunity for public comment are not 
required for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other law, the 
analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 
et seq., are inapplicable.
    This action is not considered significant under Executive Order 
12866.
