The draft amendment includes options to remove Atlantic cobia from the FMP or establish complementary management of Atlantic cobia. DATES: The public scoping meeting will be held via webinar on August 15, 2017 at 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Council is soliciting public input on options for the management of Atlantic cobia. Atlantic cobia are currently managed by the Council in federal waters from the Florida/Georgia state line north through New York. Options include continuing efforts to develop a complementary management plan with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) or the complete transfer of Atlantic cobia management to the ASMFC. The recreational fishery for Atlantic cobia closed in federal waters earlier this year after NOAA Fisheries determined the annual catch limit would be met. The majority of Atlantic cobia are caught off the coasts of northeastern North Carolina and Virginia are generally harvested from state waters. The Council is considering options for management in order to allow additional flexibility for the fishery. The public scoping webinar will consist of a presentation by Council staff, a question and answer session, and formal public comment. Written comments will also be accepted via the online comment form. Registration for the webinar is required. Registration information, briefing materials and the public comment form will be available at: http://safmc.net/safmc-meetings/ public-hearing-and-scoping-meetingschedule/ on or before August 1, 2017. Written comments may also be submitted to the Council office (see ADDRESSES). Comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Friday, August 18, 2017.
