the Commonwealth of Virginia. This quota adjustment is necessary to 
comply with the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery 
Management Plan quota transfer provisions. This announcement informs 
the public of the revised 2019 commercial quotas for North Carolina and 
Virginia.

DATES: Effective December 13, 2019, through December 31, 2019.

Specialist, (978) 281-9225.

apportioned among the coastal states from Maine through North Carolina. 
The process to set the annual commercial quota and the percent 
allocated to each state is described in Sec.  648.102 and final 2019 
allocations were published on May 17, 2019 (84 FR 22392).
    The final rule implementing Amendment 5 to the Summer Flounder 
Fishery Management Plan (FMP), as published in the Federal Register on 
December 17, 1993 (58 FR 65936), provided a mechanism for transferring 
summer flounder commercial quota from one state to another. Two or more 
states, under mutual agreement and with the concurrence of the NMFS 
Greater Atlantic Regional Administrator, can transfer or combine summer 
flounder commercial quota under Sec.  648.102(c)(2). The Regional 
Administrator is required to consider three criteria in the evaluation 
of requests for quota transfers or combinations: The transfer or 
combinations would not preclude the overall annual quota from being 
fully harvested; the transfer addresses an unforeseen variation or 
contingency in the fishery; and, the transfer is consistent with the 
objectives of the FMP and the Magnuson-Stevens Act. The Regional 
Administrator has determined these three criteria have been met for the 
transfer approved in this notice.
    North Carolina is transferring 7,500 lb (3,402 kg) of summer 
flounder commercial quota to Virginia. This transfer was requested to 
repay landings made by a North Carolina-permitted vessel in Virginia 
under a safe harbor agreement. Based on the revised Summer Flounder, 
Scup, and Black Sea Bass Specifications, the summer flounder quotas for 
2019 are now: North Carolina, 2,879,055 lb (1,305,917 kg); and, 
Virginia, 2,405,916 lb (1,091,305 kg).
