The use of all mobile bottom-tending fishing gear is prohibited in the GSC HMA. The GSC HMA contains complex benthic habitat that is important for juvenile cod and other fish species, and it is susceptible to the adverse impacts of fishing gear. The OHA2 included a 1year delay of the GSC HMA closure that allowed the surfclam fishery to continue fishing with hydraulic clam dredges in the GSC HMA. This delay was intended to give the Council time to determine if a long-term exemption is warranted. The 1-year delay ended on April 9, 2019, and the GSC HMA is now closed to all mobile bottom-tending fishing gear. On September 17, 2019, NMFS published in the Federal Register a proposed rule to implement the Clam Dredge Exemption Framework with a 30-day comment period that closed on October 17, 2019 (84 FR 48899).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Great South Channel Habitat Management Area (GSC HMA) was 
created by the final rule to implement the New England Fishery 
Management Council's Omnibus Habitat Amendment 2 (OHA2) (83 FR 15240; 
April 9, 2018). The use of all mobile bottom-tending fishing gear is 
prohibited in the GSC HMA. The GSC HMA contains complex benthic habitat 
that is important for juvenile cod and other fish species, and it is 
susceptible to the adverse impacts of fishing gear. The OHA2 included a 
1-year delay of the GSC HMA closure that allowed the surfclam fishery 
to continue fishing with hydraulic clam dredges in the GSC HMA. This 
delay was intended to give the Council time to determine if a long-term 
exemption is warranted. The 1-year delay ended on April 9, 2019, and 
the GSC HMA is now closed to all mobile bottom-tending fishing gear.
    On September 17, 2019, NMFS published in the Federal Register a 
proposed rule to implement the Clam Dredge Exemption Framework with a 
30-day comment period that closed on October 17, 2019 (84 FR 48899). 
Full details of the proposed measures are provided in the proposed rule 
and are not repeated here. Subsequently, NMFS received a request from 
the Council to extend the comment period due to concerns that an error 
in a URL in the proposed rule may have prevented some individuals from 
submitting comments. NMFS is reopening the comment period on the 
proposed rule through November 18, 2019, and is including the correct 
URL to ensure all interested partied have an opportunity to submit 
comments. Comments submitted during the prior comment period have been 
incorporated into the public record, and will be fully considered 
during the preparation of our final determination.
