This action revises the recreational closed season for gag and the recreational minimum size limits for gag and black grouper in the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) exclusive economic zone. The purpose of this final rule is to optimize recreational opportunities to harvest gag and to address inconsistencies in the recreational minimum size limits for gag and black grouper in the Gulf and South Atlantic.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard Malinowski, Southeast Regional Office, NMFS, telephone: 727–824– 5305, email: rich.malinowski@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf reef fish fishery, which includes gag and black grouper, is managed under the FMP. The FMP was prepared by the Council and is implemented through regulations at 50 CFR part 622 under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). On March 3, 2016, NMFS published a proposed rule for the framework action and requested public comment (81 FR 11166). The proposed rule and Amendment 35 outline the rationale for the actions contained in this final rule. A summary of the actions implemented by the framework action and this final rule is provided below. The 2014 Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR 33) benchmark stock assessment indicates that the Gulf gag stock is not overfished or undergoing overfishing. However, as described in the framework action, the Council’s Reef Fish Advisory Panel, the Council’s Science and Statistical Committee (SSC), and the public all suggested that the Council use caution when setting the gag annual catch limits (ACL) and annual catch targets (ACT) because SEDAR 33 resulted in a large increase in the overfishing limit compared to the previous gag assessment. Therefore, the Council decided not to modify the Gulf gag ACL or ACT in this framework action. The 2010 SEDAR 19 benchmark assessment for black grouper found that the Gulf black grouper stock was neither overfished nor undergoing overfishing. Management Measures Contained in This Final Rule This final rule revises the recreational closed season for gag and the recreational minimum size limits for gag and black grouper in the Gulf. Gag Recreational Closed Season The current closed season for the gag recreational sector is January 1 through June 30 and December 3 through December 31, annually. This closed season was established in Amendment E:\FR\FM\25APR1.SGM 25APR1
