SUMMARY: NMFS is correcting a temporary rule that implemented measures 
for Northeast multispecies common pool vessels for the 2019 fishing 
year. These measures included possession and trip limits and the 
allocation of zero trips into the Closed Area II Yellowtail Flounder/
Haddock Special Access Program for common pool vessels to target

was incorrect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Need for Correction

    NMFS published measures for the Northeast multispecies common pool 
fishery for fishing year 2019 on April 26, 2019 (84 FR 17926). These 
measures included possession and trip limits for all stocks of 
regulated multispecies.
    The document incorrectly listed the trip limit for Gulf of Maine 
(GOM) winter flounder as 2,000 lb (907 kg) per trip, instead of the 
correct trip limit of 1,000 lb (454 kg) per trip. This correction will 
not adversely affect fishing operations. The corrected trip limit of 
1,000 lb (454 kg) is the same as the 1,000 lb (454 kg) trip limit for 
the stock in the previous year. The 1,000 lb (454 kg) limit is based on 
past experience and anticipated fishing effort. There was no discussion 
of any increase because there was intended to be no change in the limit 
from the previous fishing year to prevent an overage from occurring in 
Trimester 1. This correction is necessary to prevent early trimester 
closures and overages of common pool quotas while facilitating 
optimized harvest.

Classification

    The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, finds good cause 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to waive prior 
notice and the opportunity for public comment and the 30-day delayed 
effectiveness period because it would be contrary to the public 
interest. This action corrects an error that inadvertently identified 
the trip limit of GOM winter flounder for the Northeast multispecies 
common pool fishery at 2,000 lb (907 kg) per trip rather than the 
correct 1,000 lb (454 kg) per trip.
    Delay of this action would leave the common pool fishery with a 
trip limit for GOM winter flounder that is too high to control catch 
and may lead to early closure of a trimester and quota overages. Any 
overage of the quota for either of the first two trimesters must be 
deducted from the Trimester 3 quota, which could substantially disrupt 
the trimester structure and intent to distribute fishing effort across 
the entire fishing year. An overage reduction in Trimester 3 would 
further reduce fishing opportunities for common pool vessels and likely 
result in early closure of Trimester 3. Additionally, any overage of 
the annual quota would be deducted from common pool's quota for the 
next fishing year, to the detriment of the fishery.
    For the reasons above, delay of this action for prior notice and 
the opportunity for public comment and the 30-day delayed effectiveness 
period would undermine management objectives of the FMP and cause 
unnecessary negative economic impacts to the common pool fishery.
