SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Currently, hogfish are managed under two FMPs. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Gulf of Mexico Council) manages one hogfish stock in the FMP for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico. The South Atlantic Council manages the other hogfish stock in the FMP for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region. In August 2014, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission completed a benchmark stock assessment for hogfish as part of the Southeast Data, Assessment, and PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45641 Review (SEDAR) process (SEDAR 37). Amendment 37 responds to the August 2014 benchmark stock assessment of hogfish that defined three separate stocks in the South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, including one stock that is subject to overfishing and is overfished. Amendment 37 and the associated EIS consider new reference points, status determination criteria, catch levels, and management measures for the two new stocks in the South Atlantic, including a rebuilding plan for the stock that is overfished. In October 2014, the South Atlantic Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) reviewed the stock assessment and provided recommended approaches for calculating fishing level recommendations, which the South Atlantic Council reviewed at their December 2014 meeting. Based on genetic evidence used in the stock assessment, the SSC supported the assessment’s approach of defining two separate hogfish stocks in the South Atlantic, one stock off Georgia and North Carolina (GA-NC) and one stock off the Florida Keys and eastern Florida (FLK/EFL), and a third stock in the eastern Gulf of Mexico off the west coast of Florida (WFL). The SSC determined that the stock assessment for the GA-NC stock does not represent the best scientific information available for determining stock status, i.e., whether the stock is subject to overfishing or is overfished, or for informing management decisions. Instead, they recommended that catch level recommendations for the GA-NC hogfish stock be developed using the Only Reliable Catch Stocks (ORCS) approach set forth in Level 4 of the Council’s acceptable biological catch (ABC) control rule. Using the ORCS approach, the ABC for the GA-NC stock recommended by the SSC is 28,161 pounds whole weight (lb ww). For the FLK/EFL stock, the SSC determined that the benchmark stock assessment represents the best scientific information available and recommended it for use in management decisions. The assessment results indicate the FLK/EFL stock is undergoing overfishing and is overfished. Amendment 37 and the associated EIS consider and evaluate a number of management actions responding to this new scientific information and the recommendations from the South Atlantic Council’s SSC. The management actions include modifying the hogfish management unit from one stock to two separate stocks in the South Atlantic, and defining individual stock boundaries, including the boundary between the FLK/EFL stock managed by E:\FR\FM\31JYN1.SGM 31JYN1
