ACTION: Notice of meeting. AGENCY: NMFS will hold a 1-day Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Advisory Panel (AP) meeting via webinar in May 2020. The intent of the meeting is to consider options for the conservation and management of Atlantic HMS. The meeting is open to the public. DATES: The AP meeting and webinar will be held from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. ADDRESSES: The meeting on Tuesday, May 21, will be accessible via conference call and webinar. Conference call and webinar access information are available at: https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/event/may2020-hms-advisory-panel-meeting.

NMFS consults with and considers the comments and views of AP members when preparing and implementing FMPs or FMP amendments for Atlantic tunas, swordfish, billfish, and sharks. The AP has previously consulted with NMFS on all Atlantic HMS FMPs and FMP amendments since the inception of the AP in 1998. Generally AP meetings are held inperson, but because of current restrictions on travel and public gatherings this AP meeting will be conducted via webinar. The intent of this meeting is to consider alternatives for the conservation and management of all Atlantic tunas, swordfish, billfish, and shark fisheries. We anticipate discussing: • Draft Amendment 12, which would update the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP using revised National Standard guidelines; • A proposed rule and Environmental Assessment to modify shark and swordfish retention limits; • Updates on the bluefin tuna fishery and Amendment 13 (bluefin tuna). We also anticipate inviting other NMFS offices and the United States Coast Guard to provide updates, if available, on their activities relevant to HMS fisheries. Additional information on the meeting and a copy of the draft agenda will be posted prior to the meeting at: https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/event/ may-2020-hms-advisory-panel-meeting.

Pursuant to section 304(e)(2) of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1854(e)(2), NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary, must notify Councils, and publish in the Federal Register, whenever it determines that a stock or stock complex is subject to overfishing, overfished, or approaching an overfished condition. NMFS has determined that Saint Matthew Island blue king crab is still overfished. This determination is based on the most recent assessment, completed in 2019 using data through 2019, which indicates that the biomass estimate remains below its threshold. NMFS has notified the North Pacific Fishery Management Council of the requirements to rebuild this stock. NMFS has determined that the American Samoa Bottomfish Multispecies Complex is now subject to overfishing and now overfished. This determination is based on the most recent assessment, completed in 2019, using data through 2017, which indicates that this complex is overfished because the biomass estimate is less than the threshold and subject to overfishing because the fishing mortality rate is greater than the threshold. In addition, NMFS has determined that the Guam Bottomfish Multi-species Complex is now overfished. This determination is based on the most recent assessment, completed in 2019, using data through 2017, which indicates that this complex is overfished because the biomass estimate is less than the threshold. NMFS has notified the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council of its obligation to end overfishing on the American Samoa Multi-species Complex and rebuild both stock complexes.
