SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Need for Additional Hearing

    On July 12, 2019, NMFS published a proposed rule in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 33205) that would adjust regulatory measures put in 
place to reduce bluefin tuna bycatch in the pelagic longline fishery 
for Atlantic highly migratory species (HMS). Specifically, the proposed 
measures address the Northeastern United States Closed Area, the Cape 
Hatteras Gear Restricted Area, and the Spring Gulf of Mexico Gear 
Restricted Area as well as the weak hook requirement in the Gulf of 
Mexico.
    In the proposed rule, NMFS scheduled a hearing in Gloucester, MA on 
July 16, 2019. Recently, NMFS has received feedback from the public 
that there was not a sufficient amount of time (i.e., three business 
days) between publication of the proposed rule and the date of the 
public hearing in Gloucester, MA for news of the hearing to be shared 
across information networks to interested constituents. Therefore, NMFS 
is scheduling this additional hearing (see ADDRESSES) in Gloucester, MA 
to gather additional comment from the affected public in this area.
