    The final rule implementing Amendment 1 to the Bluefish Fishery 
Management Plan published in the Federal Register on July 26, 2000 (65

Virginia 50,000 lb (22,680 kg) of their 2015 commercial bluefish quotas 
to Rhode Island. This transfer was requested by state officials in 
Rhode Island to ensure their commercial bluefish quota is not exceeded. 
The Regional Administrator has determined that the criteria set forth
