AGENCY: NMFS implements accountability measures (AMs) for the greater amberjack recreational sector in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) for the 2015 fishing year through this temporary rule. NMFS has determined that the recreational annual catch target (ACT) for Gulf greater amberjack will be reached by September 27, 2015. Therefore, NMFS is closing the recreational sector for greater amberjack in the Gulf EEZ on September 28, 2015. This closure is necessary to protect the Gulf greater amberjack resource.

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) prepared the FMP and NMFS implements the FMP under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622. All greater amberjack weights discussed in this temporary rule are in round weight. The 2015 recreational annual catch limit (ACL) for Gulf greater amberjack is 1,299,000 lb (589,216 kg) and the recreational ACT (recreational quota) is 1,130,000 lb (512,559 kg) as specified in 50 CFR 622.41(a)(2)(iii) and 622.39(a)(2)(ii), respectively. Under 50 CFR 622.41(a)(2)(i), NMFS is required to close the recreational sector for greater amberjack when the recreational ACT is reached, or is projected to be reached, by filing a notification to that effect with the Office of the Federal Register. NMFS has determined the 2015 recreational ACT will be reached by September 27, 2015. Accordingly, NMFS closes the recreational sector for Gulf greater amberjack effective 12:01 a.m., local time, September 28, 2015, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2016, the start of the next fishing year. During the recreational closure, the bag and possession limits for greater amberjack in or from the Gulf EEZ are zero. The prohibition on possession in the Gulf on board a vessel for which a valid Federal charter vessel/headboat permit for Gulf reef fish has been issued applies regardless of whether greater amberjack were harvested in state or Federal waters.

Such procedures are unnecessary because the rule establishing the closure provisions was subject to notice and comment, and all that remains is to notify the public of the closure. Such procedures are contrary to the public interest because of the need to immediately implement this action to protect greater amberjack.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The snapper-grouper fishery of the South Atlantic includes vermilion snapper and is managed under the Fishery Management Plan for the SnapperGrouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (FMP). The FMP was prepared by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council and is implemented by NMFS under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622. The commercial quota for vermilion snapper in the South Atlantic is divided into separate quotas for two 6-month time periods each year, January through June and July through December. For the July through December 2015 period, the commercial quota is 394,829 lb (179,091 kg), gutted weight (438,260 lb (198,791 kg), round weight), as specified in 50 CFR 622.190(a)(4)(ii)(C). On September 4, 2015 (80 FR 53473), NMFS published a temporary rule in the Federal Register to reduce the commercial trip limit for vermilion snapper in or from the EEZ of the South Atlantic to 500 lb (227 kg), gutted weight, effective 12:01 a.m., local time, September 10, 2015, until January 1, 2016, or until the quota is reached and the commercial sector closes, whichever occurs first. In accordance with regulations at 50 CFR 622.193(f)(1), NMFS is required to close the commercial sector for vermilion snapper when the commercial quota for that 6-month portion of the fishing year has been reached, or is projected to be reached, by filing a notification to that effect with the Office of the Federal Register. NMFS has determined that the commercial quota for South Atlantic vermilion snapper for the July through December 2015 period will have been reached by September 22, 2015. Accordingly, the commercial sector for South Atlantic vermilion snapper is closed effective 12:01 a.m., local time, September 22, 2015, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2016.

Reef Fish Fishery of the Gulf of Mexico; 2015 Recreational 
Accountability Measures and Closure for Gulf of Mexico Greater 
Amberjack

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure.

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

SUMMARY: NMFS implements accountability measures (AMs) for the greater 
amberjack recreational sector in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of 
the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) for the 2015 fishing year through this 
temporary rule. NMFS has determined that the recreational annual catch 
target (ACT) for Gulf greater amberjack will be reached by September 
27, 2015. Therefore, NMFS is closing the recreational sector for 
greater amberjack in the Gulf EEZ on September 28, 2015. This closure 
is necessary to protect the Gulf greater amberjack resource.

DATES: This rule is effective from 12:01 a.m., local time, September 
28, 2015, until 12:01 a.m., local time on January 1, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the reef fish fishery of the 
Gulf, which includes greater amberjack, under the Fishery Management 
Plan for

the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf (FMP). The Gulf of Mexico Fishery 
Management Council (Council) prepared the FMP and NMFS implements the 
FMP under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation 
and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 
622. All greater amberjack weights discussed in this temporary rule are 
in round weight.
    The 2015 recreational annual catch limit (ACL) for Gulf greater 
amberjack is 1,299,000 lb (589,216 kg) and the recreational ACT 
(recreational quota) is 1,130,000 lb (512,559 kg) as specified in 50 
CFR 622.41(a)(2)(iii) and 622.39(a)(2)(ii), respectively.
    Under 50 CFR 622.41(a)(2)(i), NMFS is required to close the 
recreational sector for greater amberjack when the recreational ACT is 
reached, or is projected to be reached, by filing a notification to 
that effect with the Office of the Federal Register. NMFS has 
determined the 2015 recreational ACT will be reached by September 27, 
2015. Accordingly, NMFS closes the recreational sector for Gulf greater 
amberjack effective 12:01 a.m., local time, September 28, 2015, until 
12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2016, the start of the next fishing 
year.
    During the recreational closure, the bag and possession limits for 
greater amberjack in or from the Gulf EEZ are zero. The prohibition on 
possession in the Gulf on board a vessel for which a valid Federal 
charter vessel/headboat permit for Gulf reef fish has been issued 
applies regardless of whether greater amberjack were harvested in state 
or Federal waters.
    The recreational sector for greater amberjack will reopen on 
January 1, 2016, the beginning of the 2016 recreational fishing season.

Classification

    The Regional Administrator, Southeast Region, NMFS, has determined 
this temporary rule is necessary for the conservation and management of 
Gulf greater amberjack and is consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Act 
and other applicable laws.
    This action is taken under 50 CFR 622.41(a)(2)(i) and is exempt 
from review under Executive Order 12866.
    These measures are exempt from the procedures of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act because the temporary rule is issued without 
opportunity for prior notice and comment.
    This action responds to the best scientific information available. 
The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds that the 
need to immediately implement this action to close the recreational 
sector for greater amberjack constitutes good cause to waive the 
requirements to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment 
on this temporary rule pursuant to the authority set forth in 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B), because such procedures are unnecessary and contrary to the 
public interest. Such procedures are unnecessary because the rule 
establishing the closure provisions was subject to notice and comment, 
and all that remains is to notify the public of the closure. Such 
procedures are contrary to the public interest because of the need to 
immediately implement this action to protect greater amberjack. Prior 
notice and opportunity for public comment would require time and would 
potentially allow the recreational sector to exceed the recreational 
ACL.
    For the aforementioned reasons, the AA also finds good cause to 
waive the 30-day delay in the effectiveness of this action under 5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3).
