SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Atka mackerel in the 
Eastern Aleutian district and the Bering Sea subarea (BSEAI) of the 
Bering Sea and Aleutian Island management area (BSAI) by vessels 
participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery. This action is 
necessary to prevent exceeding the A season allowance of the 2015 Atka 
mackerel total allowable catch (TAC) in the BSEAI allocated to vessels 
participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery.

DATES: Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), January 27, 
2015, through 1200 hrs, A.l.t., June 10, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steve Whitney, 907-586-7228.

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 A season allowance of the 2015 Atka mackerel TAC, in the BSEAI, 
allocated to vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access 
fishery was established as a directed fishing allowance of 1,150 metric 
tons by the final 2014 and 2015 harvest specifications for groundfish 
in the BSAI (79 FR 12108, March 4, 2014), and as adjusted by an 
inseason adjustment (80 FR 188, January 5, 2015).
    In accordance with Sec.  679.20(d)(1)(iii), the Administrator, 
Alaska Region, NMFS, finds that this directed fishing allowance has 
been reached. Consequently, NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for 
Atka mackerel in the BSEAI by vessels participating in the BSAI trawl 
limited access fishery.
    After the effective dates of this closure, the maximum retainable 
amounts at Sec.  679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip.

Classification

    This action responds to the best available information recently 
obtained from the fishery. The Acting Assistant Administrator for 
Fisheries, NOAA, (AA) finds good cause to waive the requirement to 
provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the 
authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such a requirement is 
impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This requirement is 
impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent 
NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely 
fashion and would delay the directed fishing closure of the Atka 
mackerel fishery in the BSEAI for vessels participating in the BSAI 
trawl limited access fishery. NMFS was unable to publish a notice 
providing time for public comment because the most recent, relevant 
data only became available as of January 26, 2015. The AA also finds 
good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this 
action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons 
provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public 
comment.
    This action is required by Sec.  679.20 and is exempt from review 
under Executive Order 12866.
