Act) states that the Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) for each regional fishery management council shall provide its Council ongoing scientific advice for fishery management decisions, including recommendations for acceptable biological catch (ABC), preventing overfishing, ensuring maximum sustainable yield, and achieving rebuilding targets. The ABC is a level of catch that accounts for the scientific uncertainty in the estimate of the stock’s defined overfishing level (OFL). The regulations implementing the MSB FMP require the Council’s MSB Monitoring Committee to develop specification recommendations for each species based upon the ABC advice of the Council’s SSC. The regulations at 50 CFR 648.22(e) allow the Regional Administrator, in consultation with the Council, to adjust specifications during the fishing year. At its May 2020 meeting, the Council’s SSC reviewed preliminary work by its Illex Squid Working Group and concluded that the species continues to be lightly exploited and the fishery footprint is small relative to the entire management unit. The SSC recommended increasing the 2020 ABC E:\FR\FM\04AUR1.SGM 04AUR1
