ACTION: Advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR); request for comments. AGENCY: This ANPR announces a control date of June 23, 2014, that may be used as a reference for allocation decisions when considering potential future management actions to limit the number of participants in the largemesh drift gillnet (DGN) fishery that targets swordfish and thresher sharks. The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) selected the June 23, 2014, control date based on discussions at its June meeting. The Council requested this ANPR to discourage speculative fishing effort as they review the current state-managed DGN limited entry program and consider establishing a federally-managed limited entry program for this fishery. This ANPR is intended to promote public awareness of the Council’s interest and the potential for a future rulemaking. DATES: June 23, 2014, shall be known as the control date for the large-mesh DGN fishery and may be used as a reference for allocations in a future management program that is consistent with the Council’s objectives and applicable federal laws. Comments must be submitted in writing by November 28, 2014. SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\28OCP1.SGM 28OCP1
