ACTION: Notice; correction. AGENCY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) published notice in the Federal Register of September 29, 2021, of the final results of the 2018–2020 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from Japan.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Northeast Sector Service Network (NESSN) submitted a complete application for an Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) in support of an exploratory fishing project in the Gulf of Maine (GOM) Regulated Mesh Area (RMA). The EFP would exempt a single commercial fishing vessel from the 6.5inch (16.51-cm) minimum mesh size restriction for day gillnet vessels fishing in the GOM RMA. The proposed EFP is intended to generate catch composition and gear comparison data to inform future studies on the feasibility of using 6-inch (15.24-cm) mesh gillnet gear to target GOM haddock while minimizing catch of GOM cod. Activity under this EFP would occur from January 1, 2022 through May 31, 2022 within the GOM RMA. The participating vessel plans to take between 25 to 35 EFP trips, which will each average between 2 and 3 days in length. During each trip, the vessel would deploy 5 to 8 sets of 6-inch (15.24-cm) mesh gillnet gear. The maximum number of individual gillnets that would be deployed is 75. Soak time would not exceed 24 hours, and the vessel will not leave the fishing grounds while gear is fishing. The participating vessel would also periodically deploy 6.5-inch (16.51-cm) mesh gillnet and/or longline gear alongside the exploratory gear to generate data for catchability comparisons between these different gear types. The 6.5 inch (16.51-cm) gillnet gear would consist of a single string of 12 to 24 nets, while the longline gear would be 1,000 to 2,400 hooks fished as a 1 to 4 strings.

Allowable discards will be discarded atsea, while all other species will be retained, landed, and processed per normal commercial fishing procedures.

All catch, including landings and discards, will be deducted from Sector ACE as normal.

groundfish trips taken under the EFP. Allowable discards will be 
discarded at-sea, while all other species will be retained, landed, and 
processed per normal commercial fishing procedures. Monitors will 
document all discards of allocated sub-legal catch. NESSN and the 
participating vessel are responsible paying for the additional

    All catch, including landings and discards, will be deducted from

    The exemption from the mesh size restriction for day gillnet 
vessels at 50 CFR 648.80(a)(3)(iv)(B)(1) is necessary to allow the 
participating vessel to conduct exploratory fishing with 6-inch mesh 
gillnet gear under the proposed EFP.
    If approved, the applicant may request minor modifications and 
extensions to the EFP throughout the year. EFP modifications and 
extensions may be granted without further notice if they are deemed 
essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have 
minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially 
approved EFP request. Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope 
of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited.
