the Aleutian Islands Subarea of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands 
Management Area

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting retention of non-Community Development 
Quota (CDQ) sablefish by vessels using trawl gear in the Aleutian 
Islands subarea of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area 
(BSAI). This action is necessary because the 2020 non-CDQ sablefish 
initial total allowable catch (ITAC) in the Aleutian Islands subarea of 
the BSAI will be reached.

DATES: Effective 1200 hours, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), July 14, 2020, 
through 2400 hours, A.l.t., December 31, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Obren Davis, 907-586-7228.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the 
BSAI according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the 
Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (FMP) prepared by the 
North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the 
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations 
governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at 
subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679.
    The 2020 non-CDQ sablefish trawl ITAC in the Aleutian Islands 
subarea of the BSAI is 433 metric tons (mt) as established by the final 
2020 and 2021 harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (85 FR 
13553, March 9, 2020). In accordance with Sec.  679.20(d)(2), the 
Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), has 
determined that the 2020 non-CDQ sablefish trawl ITAC in the Aleutian 
Islands subarea of the BSAI will soon be reached. Therefore, NMFS is 
requiring that non-CDQ sablefish caught with vessels using trawl gear 
in the Aleutian Islands subarea of the BSAI be treated as prohibited 
species in accordance with Sec.  679.21(a).

Classification

    NMFS issues this action pursuant to section 305(d) of the Magnuson-
Stevens Act. This action is required by 50 CFR part 679, which was 
issued pursuant to section 304(b), and is exempt from review under 
Executive Order 12866.
    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), there is good cause to waive prior 
notice and an opportunity for public comment on this action, as notice 
and comment would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest, 
as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries 
data in a timely fashion and would delay the prohibited retention of 
non-CDQ sablefish by vessels using trawl gear in the Aleutian Islands 
subarea of the BSAI.
    NMFS was unable to publish a notice providing time for public 
comment because the most recent, relevant data only became available as 
of July 13, 2020.
