Public comments must be received by 5 p.m. on November 5, 2021. Amendment 44 to the Snapper Grouper FMP The Council must adjust catch levels for yellowtail snapper in response to the most recent stock assessment for the species in the region (SEDAR 64 2019). Yellowtail snapper is considered a single stock distributed in the South Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf). The stock assessment results indicated the stock is not overfished nor undergoing overfishing. However, catch levels must be adjusted based on the acceptable biological catch recommended by the South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Councils’ Scientific and Statistical Committees (SSC). The acceptable biological catch must first be allocated between the two regions. In addition, the Council is considering modifications to catch levels, sector allocations and possibly establishing commercial management measures. During the scoping meetings, Council staff will present an overview of the amendment and will be available for informal discussions and to answer questions via webinar. Members of the public will have an opportunity to go on record to provide their comments for consideration by the Council. Special Accommodations These meetings are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for auxiliary aids should be directed to the Council office (see ADDRESSES) 5 days prior to the meeting. Note: The times and sequence specified in this agenda are subject to change.
