ACTION: Supplemental notice of intent (NOI) to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS). AGENCY: The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council has been preparing an amendment to the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan, known as the ‘‘Comprehensive Summer Flounder Amendment,’’ to modify aspects of the fishery management plan related to summer flounder commercial and recreational management. To avoid delaying the amendment while waiting for updated recreational information, the Council is now splitting several issues within this original action, including fishery management plan goals and objectives, commercial allocation, commercial moratorium permits, and commercial framework provisions into a separate action that will continue to be developed as an EIS. The Council is taking comments on this modified action, which is now being referred to as the ‘‘Summer Flounder Commercial Issues Amendment.’’ Following completion of this ‘‘Commercial Issues’’ amendment, the Council may then develop at least one future action relating to recreational fishery issues and commercial/ recreational allocation to incorporate updated recreational fishery data when it becomes available later this year. The purpose of this notification is to alert SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and seek comment from the public about the Council’s consideration of splitting this amendment, by delaying some issues to be pursued via later actions.

Moore, Ph.D., Executive Director, Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council, telephone: (302) 526–5255. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 16, 2014, an NOI was published in the Federal Register (79 FR 55432) announcing the Council’s intent to prepare an EIS for a broad management action addressing several categories of summer flounder issues in the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan (FMP). The Council initiated this Comprehensive Summer Flounder Amendment jointly with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission to review all aspects of the FMP related to summer flounder. The amendment was intended to consider updating the goals and objectives of the FMP as related to summer flounder, revising the allocation between the commercial and recreational sector, and modifying many management strategies and requirements for both commercial and recreational fisheries for summer flounder. Since publication of the original NOI, the Council has delayed development of recreational fishery issues and recreational/commercial allocation and narrowed the remaining range of issues to a more focused list of priority topics. The primary driver of this proposed split is the ongoing revisions to recreational data by the Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP), which are expected to substantially change the current understanding of recreational catch and landings. Due to these changes, the Council and Commission chose to delay development of any issues that would rely heavily on recreational data, including quota allocation between the commercial and recreational sectors, as well as recreational management measures and strategies.
