As a result, a regulatory flexibility analysis was not required and none was prepared. Section 212 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 states that, for each rule or group of related rules for which an agency is required to prepare a FRFA, the agency shall publish one or more guides to assist small entities in complying with the rule, and shall designate such publications as ‘‘small entity compliance guides.’’ The agency shall explain the actions a small entity is required to take to comply with a rule or group of rules. As part of this rulemaking process, NMFS has prepared a brochure summarizing fishery information and regulations for Atlantic tuna fisheries for 2012. This brochure also serves as the small entity compliance guide. Copies of the compliance guide are available from NMFS (see ADDRESSES). Authority: 16 U.S.C. 971 et seq. and 1801 et seq.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: NMFS issues this final rule to implement Amendment 11 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Spiny Lobster Fishery in the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic (FMP), as prepared and submitted by the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Fishery Management Councils (Councils). This final rule limits spiny lobster trap fishing in certain areas in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the Florida Keys to erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:46 Jul 26, 2012 Jkt 226001 protect threatened species of corals and addresses the requirements of a 2009 Endangered Species Act (ESA) biological opinion on the spiny lobster fishery. DATES: This rule is effective August 27, 2012. ADDRESSES: Electronic copies of Amendment 11, which includes a supplemental environmental impact statement and a regulatory flexibility analysis, may be obtained from the Southeast Regional Office Web site at http://sero.nmfs.noaa.gov/sf/pdfs/Final_ Spiny_Lobster_Amend_11_April_05_ 2012.pdf. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Susan Gerhart, telephone: 727–824– 5305, or email: Susan.Gerhart@noaa. gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The spiny lobster fishery of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) and the South Atlantic is managed under the FMP. The FMP was prepared by the Councils and implemented through regulations at 50 CFR parts 622 and 640 under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). A 2009 ESA biological opinion on the continued authorization of the spiny lobster fishery contained specific terms and conditions required to implement the prescribed reasonable and prudent measures and requires NMFS and the Councils to work together to protect areas of staghorn and elkhorn coral. This final rule addresses the required measure to create new or expand existing closed areas for lobster trap fishing where colonies of these threatened species are present. On September 19, 2011, NMFS published a notice of intent to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement for Amendment 11 and requested public comment (76 FR 57958). On April 27, 2012, NMFS published a notice of availability for Amendment 11 and requested public comment (77 FR 25116). On May 15, 2012, NMFS published a proposed rule for Amendment 11 and requested comment (77 FR 28560). The proposed rule and Amendment 11 outline the rationale for the action contained in this final rule. A summary of the action being implemented by this final rule is provided below. This final rule prohibits spiny lobster trap fishing in 60 closed areas that cover a total of 5.9 mi2 (15.3 km2), distributed throughout the South Atlantic EEZ off the Florida Keys. These areas were chosen to protect threatended coral colonies with high conservation value and areas of high coral density. The PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 closed areas meet the applicable requirements of the 2009 ESA biological opinion. Comments and Responses NMFS received five public comment submissions on Amendment 11 and the proposed rule, including three comments from individuals. Two Federal agencies stated they had no comment on the rule. Specific comments related to the actions contained in Amendment 11 and the proposed rule, as well as NMFS’ respective responses, are summarized below. Comment 1: Lobster trapping destroys reefs and should be prohibited. Response: Amendment 11 does not address the general use of traps in the lobster fishery. The purpose of Amendment 11 is to implement the specific terms and conditions of the 2009 ESA biological opinion, one of which is to create new or expand existing closed areas to protect elkhorn and staghorn coral. The purpose of this final rule is to implement Amendment 11 and is not intended to address all possible management measures for the lobster fishery as a whole. The prohibition of lobster trap fishing in the 60 areas implemented through Amendment 11 will help protect reefs in the designated areas. As explained in Amendment 11, these areas were selected by identifying elkhorn and staghorn coral colonies and applying six general criteria to choose the areas that will provide the greatest benefit. In consultation with various stakeholders, NMFS and the Councils selected areas to be closed to lobster trap fishing that protect threatened coral colonies with high conservation value and areas of high coral density. Comment 2: Closing areas to lobster trap fishing is long overdue. Response: The measures contained in this final rule were developed to meet specific terms and conditions of the 2009 ESA biological opinion. NMFS and the Councils gathered data on identified elkhorn and staghorn coral colonies, then worked with fishermen, scientists, and managers to select areas to close to lobster trap fishing. This colloborative and deliberative process took time, but is intended to ensure that the areas selected will protect elkhorn and staghorn coral with the highest conservation value without overly restricting access to lobster fishing areas. Classification The Regional Administrator, Southeast Region, NMFS has determined that this final rule is E:\FR\FM\27JYR1.SGM 27JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 145 / Friday, July 27, 2012 / Rules and Regulations necessary for the conservation and management of protected species described within Amendment 11, and is consistent with the FMP, the 2009 ESA biological opinion, the MagnusonStevens Act, and other applicable law. This final rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866. The Chief Counsel for Regulation of the Department of Commerce certified to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration during the proposed rule stage that this action would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The factual basis for the certification was published in the proposed rule and is not repeated here. No substantive comments were received on the certification provided in the proposed rule (77 FR 28560, May 15, 2012). No changes to the final rule were made in response to public comments. As a result, a final regulatory flexibility analysis was not required and none was prepared. Point A B C D A Point A B C D A West Long. Point North Lat.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the BSAI exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. The 2012 initial total allowable catch (ITAC) of squid in the BSAI was established as 361 metric tons (mt) by the final 2012 and 2013 harvest specifications for groundfish of the BSAI (77 FR 10669, February 23, 2012). In accordance with § 679.20(a)(3) the Regional Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS, has reviewed the most current available data and finds that the ITAC for squid in the BSAI needs to be supplemented from the non-specified reserve in order to promote efficiency in the utilization of fishery resources in the BSAI and allow fishing operations to continue. Therefore, in accordance with § 679.20(b)(3), NMFS apportions from the non-specified reserve of groundfish 64 mt to the squid ITAC in the BSAI. This apportionment is consistent with § 679.20(b)(1)(i) and does not result in overfishing of a target species because the revised ITAC is equal to or less than E:\FR\FM\27JYR1.SGM 27JYR1

Spiny Lobster Fishery of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic; 
Amendment 11

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: NMFS issues this final rule to implement Amendment 11 to the 
Fishery Management Plan for the Spiny Lobster Fishery in the Gulf of 
Mexico and South Atlantic (FMP), as prepared and submitted by the Gulf 
of Mexico and South Atlantic Fishery Management Councils (Councils). 
This final rule limits spiny lobster trap fishing in certain areas in 
the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the Florida Keys to protect 
threatened species of corals and addresses the requirements of a 2009 
Endangered Species Act (ESA) biological opinion on the spiny lobster 
fishery.

DATES: This rule is effective August 27, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Electronic copies of Amendment 11, which includes a 
supplemental environmental impact statement and a regulatory 
flexibility analysis, may be obtained from the Southeast Regional 
Office Web site at http://sero.nmfs.noaa.gov/sf/pdfs/Final_Spiny_Lobster_Amend_11_April_05_2012.pdf.

5305, or email: Susan.Gerhart@noaa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The spiny lobster fishery of the Gulf of 
Mexico (Gulf) and the South Atlantic is managed under the FMP. The FMP 
was prepared by the Councils and implemented through regulations at 50 
CFR parts 622 and 640 under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens 
Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act).
    A 2009 ESA biological opinion on the continued authorization of the 
spiny lobster fishery contained specific terms and conditions required 
to implement the prescribed reasonable and prudent measures and 
requires NMFS and the Councils to work together to protect areas of 
staghorn and elkhorn coral. This final rule addresses the required 
measure to create new or expand existing closed areas for lobster trap 
fishing where colonies of these threatened species are present.
    On September 19, 2011, NMFS published a notice of intent to prepare 
a supplemental environmental impact statement for Amendment 11 and 
requested public comment (76 FR 57958). On April 27, 2012, NMFS 
published a notice of availability for Amendment 11 and requested 
public comment (77 FR 25116). On May 15, 2012, NMFS published a 
proposed rule for Amendment 11 and requested comment (77 FR 28560). The 
proposed rule and Amendment 11 outline the rationale for the action 
contained in this final rule. A summary of the action being implemented 
by this final rule is provided below.
    This final rule prohibits spiny lobster trap fishing in 60 closed 
areas that cover a total of 5.9 mi\2\ (15.3 km\2\), distributed 
throughout the South Atlantic EEZ off the Florida Keys. These areas 
were chosen to protect threatended coral colonies with high 
conservation value and areas of high coral density. The closed areas 
meet the applicable requirements of the 2009 ESA biological opinion.

Comments and Responses

    NMFS received five public comment submissions on Amendment 11 and 
the proposed rule, including three comments from individuals. Two 
Federal agencies stated they had no comment on the rule. Specific 
comments related to the actions contained in Amendment 11 and the 
proposed rule, as well as NMFS' respective responses, are summarized 
below.
    Comment 1: Lobster trapping destroys reefs and should be 
prohibited.
    Response: Amendment 11 does not address the general use of traps in 
the lobster fishery. The purpose of Amendment 11 is to implement the 
specific terms and conditions of the 2009 ESA biological opinion, one 
of which is to create new or expand existing closed areas to protect 
elkhorn and staghorn coral. The purpose of this final rule is to 
implement Amendment 11 and is not intended to address all possible 
management measures for the lobster fishery as a whole. The prohibition 
of lobster trap fishing in the 60 areas implemented through Amendment 
11 will help protect reefs in the designated areas. As explained in 
Amendment 11, these areas were selected by identifying elkhorn and 
staghorn coral colonies and applying six general criteria to choose the 
areas that will provide the greatest benefit. In consultation with 
various stakeholders, NMFS and the Councils selected areas to be closed 
to lobster trap fishing that protect threatened coral colonies with 
high conservation value and areas of high coral density.
    Comment 2: Closing areas to lobster trap fishing is long overdue.
    Response: The measures contained in this final rule were developed 
to meet specific terms and conditions of the 2009 ESA biological 
opinion. NMFS and the Councils gathered data on identified elkhorn and 
staghorn coral colonies, then worked with fishermen, scientists, and 
managers to select areas to close to lobster trap fishing. This 
colloborative and deliberative process took time, but is intended to 
ensure that the areas selected will protect elkhorn and staghorn coral 
with the highest conservation value without overly restricting access 
to lobster fishing areas.

Classification

    The Regional Administrator, Southeast Region, NMFS has determined 
that this final rule is

[[Page 44169]]

necessary for the conservation and management of protected species 
described within Amendment 11, and is consistent with the FMP, the 2009 
ESA biological opinion, the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and other applicable 
law.
    This final rule has been determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.
    The Chief Counsel for Regulation of the Department of Commerce 
certified to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business 
Administration during the proposed rule stage that this action would 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. The factual basis for the certification was published in the 
proposed rule and is not repeated here.
    No substantive comments were received on the certification provided 
in the proposed rule (77 FR 28560, May 15, 2012). No changes to the 
final rule were made in response to public comments. As a result, a 
final regulatory flexibility analysis was not required and none was 
prepared.
