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

SUMMARY: The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is correcting a

for CDQ acceptable biological catch (ABC) reserves that published on 
October 5, 2015. The CDQ group that initiated this transfer was

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Need for Correction

    NMFS published the exchange of unused CDQ for CDQ ABC reserves on 
October 5, 2015. The document contained errors by incorrectly stating 
which CDQ group initiated the transfer. This correction will not affect 
the fishing operations. These corrections are necessary to provide the 
correct information on which CDQ group initiated the transfer in order 
to avoid confusion by fishery participants.

Correction

    1. In the Federal Register of October 5, 2015, (80 FR 60073) in FR 
Doc. 2015-25291, on page 60073, column 3, paragraph 2, sentence 1 is 
corrected to state:
    ``The Norton Sound Economic Development Corporation has requested 
that NMFS exchange 568 mt of flathead sole and 210 mt of rock sole CDQ 
reserves for 778 mt of yellowfin sole CDQ ABC reserves under Sec.  
679.31(d).''
    2. In the Federal Register of October 5, 2015, (80 FR 60073) in FR 
Doc. 2015-25291, on page 60074, columns 1-2, paragraph 1, sentence 3 is 
corrected to state:
    ``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 flatfish 
exchange by the Norton Sound Economic Development Corporation in the 
BSAI.''

Classification

    The 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 requirement is impracticable and contrary to the 
public interest. This correction amendment corrects an error 
identifying the CDQ group that initiated the transfer and does not 
change operating practices in the fisheries. Corrections should be made 
as soon as possible to avoid confusion for participants in the 
fisheries.
    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.
