ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: NMFS published a final rule on December 11, 2020 to establish 
the 2021-2022 harvest specifications and management measures for 
groundfish taken in the U.S. exclusive economic zone off the coasts of 
Washington, Oregon, and California. That final rule modified the 
boundaries of the commercial non-trawl rockfish conservation area (RCA) 
for limited entry fixed-gear and open-access vessels. In implementing 
these changes, NMFS incorrectly identified the seaward boundary of the 
commercial non-trawl RCA south of 34[deg]27' N lat. for limited entry 
fixed-gear vessels. This correction is necessary so that the 
implementing regulations are accurate and implement the action as 
intended by the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council).

DATES: This correction is effective on January 1, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS published a final rule on December 11, 
2020 (853 FR 79880) that established the 2021-2022 harvest 
specifications and management measures for groundfish taken in the U.S. 
exclusive economic zone off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and 
California. That final rule is effective January 1, 2021.

commercial non-trawl rockfish conservation area (RCA) south of 
34[deg]27' north latitude (N lat.) for limited entry fixed-gear vessels 
as 100 fathoms (fm) to 125 fm. The same rule defined the boundaries of 
the commercial non-trawl RCA south 34[deg]27' N lat. for open-access 
vessels as 100 fm to 150 fm. The correct boundaries for the commercial 
non-trawl RCA south of south of 34[deg]27' N lat. for both limited 
entry fixed-gear and open-access vessels is 100 fm to 150 fm.
    This correction is consistent with the Council recommendation for

correction to correctly implement the Council intent in their final 
action taken at the June 2020 Council meeting.
