SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions, have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. SEDAR is a threestep process including: (1) Data Workshop(s); (2) Assessment Process; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop(s) 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 Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, Highly Migratory Species Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\15JNN1.SGM 15JNN1

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: This action serves as a notice that NMFS, on behalf of the 
Secretary of Commerce (Secretary), has found that the following stocks 
are subject to overfishing or are in an overfished condition: Gulf of 
Maine/Northern Georges Bank red hake, which is managed by the New 
England Fishery Management Council, is now subject to overfishing, but 
is not overfished; and Southeast Florida hogfish, which is jointly 
managed by the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Fishery Management 
Councils, is now subject to overfishing and is in an overfished 
condition. NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary, notifies the appropriate 
fishery management council (Council) whenever it determines that 
overfishing is occurring, a stock is in an overfished condition, a 
stock is approaching an overfished condition, or when a rebuilding plan 
has not resulted in adequate progress toward ending overfishing and 
rebuilding affected fish stocks.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to sections 304(e)(2) and (e)(7) of 
the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-

regulations at 50 CFR 600.310(e)(2), NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary, 
must notify Councils whenever it determines that a stock or stock 
complex is overfished or approaching an overfished condition; or if an 
existing rebuilding plan has not ended overfishing or resulted in 
adequate rebuilding progress. NMFS also notifies Councils when it 
determines a stock or stock complex is subject to overfishing. Section 
304(e)(2) further requires NMFS to publish these notices in the Federal 
Register.
    NMFS has determined that the Gulf of Maine/Northern Georges Bank 
stock of red hake is now subject to overfishing. The New England

Southeast Florida stock of hogfish was recently identified as a 
separate stock among a total of three hogfish stocks. The Gulf of 
Mexico Fishery Management Council and the South Atlantic Fishery 
Management Council have been informed that they must end overfishing 
and rebuild the Southeast Florida stock of hogfish.
