These overall results of our status review portray a species that still occupies its historical range, although at lower and declining abundance, but with both biological characteristics and, potentially, management measures that help maintain the population above the viability threshold. Our information does not indicate that this status is likely to change within the foreseeable future. Based on these results, we conclude that the bumphead parrotfish is not currently in danger of extinction throughout its range or throughout SPOIR, and is not likely to become in danger of extinction within the foreseeable future. Accordingly, the species does not meet the definition of threatened or endangered. Based on these findings, our listing determination is that the bumphead parrotfish does not warrant listing as threatened or endangered at this time.

The product of the Data Workshop is a data report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the GMFMC, NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, and the NOAA Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies.

Overview Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’), Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010) amended the CEA to establish a new statutory framework for swaps. To implement the Dodd-Frank Act, the Commission has promulgated, or proposed, rules and regulations pursuant to the various new provisions of the CEA, including those specifically applicable to swap dealers (‘‘SDs’’) and major swap participants (‘‘MSPs’’). The Dodd-Frank Act requires all swap dealers and major swap participants to be registered with the Commission. It contains definitions of ‘‘swap,’’ ‘‘swap dealer’’ and ‘‘major swap participant’’ but directs the Commission to adopt regulations that further define those terms. On July 23, 2012, the Commission’s final regulations further defining the terms ‘‘swap dealer’’ and ‘‘major swap participant’’ became effective. On October 12, 2012, the Commission’s final regulations further defining the term ‘‘swap’’ and ‘‘security-based swap’’ in sections 712(d) and 721(c) of the Dodd-Frank Act (the ‘‘Products Definitions Final Rule’’) became effective.3 The SD and MSP registration 2 See 1 See Exemptive Order Regarding Compliance with Certain Swap Regulations, 77 FR 41110, July 12, 2012.
