CPSC Forum on Crib Bumpers, 65789-65790 [2019-25890]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 230 / Friday, November 29, 2019 / Notices NMFS has also determined that Atlantic bluefish is now overfished. The most recent assessment for bluefish, finalized in 2019 and using data through 2018, indicates that the stock is overfished because the spawning stock biomass is less than the minimum stock size threshold. This assessment incorporated new data from the Marine Recreational Information Program which revised our understanding of the level of recreational catch, spawning stock biomass, fishing mortality, and recruitment. The new data indicate that bluefish spawning stock biomass has been below the overfished threshold since 2014. NMFS has informed the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council that it must develop a rebuilding plan for this stock. Dated: November 22, 2019. Jennifer M. Wallace, Acting Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Moody Airspace Complex, located above 28 counties in south Georgia and north Florida, consists primarily of midto higher-altitude (8,000 feet above mean sea level [MSL] to FL180 [18,000 feet]) SUA with limited low-altitude SUA (less than 8,000 feet MSL). A–10C, A–29, HH–60G, and HC–130J aircrews assigned to Moody Air Force Base (AFB), Georgia, have severely constrained access to few existing, overly congested low-altitude SUAs wherein they can conduct required training operations at low-altitude to gain operational proficiency and meet their low-altitude close air support (CAS), personnel recovery (PR), and combat search and rescue (CSAR) mission objectives for combat readiness. Providing additional low-altitude Moody AFB-controlled SUA would support the low-altitude training missions (CSAR, PR, CAS) for aircrews stationed at Moody AFB to ensure aircrew protection, readiness, and increase aircrew lethality in addition to survivability in real-world combat situations.
