Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; Atlantic Shark Management Measures; Amendment 3
In order to provide additional opportunities for the public, all five Atlantic Regional Fishery Management Councils, the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions, and other interested parties to comment on the proposed rule for draft Amendment 3 to the 2006 Consolidated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP), NMFS is extending the comment period for this action. On July 24, 2009, NMFS published the proposed rule for draft Amendment 3 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP. In that proposed rule, the end of the comment period was announced as September 22, 2009, which would allow for a 60-day comment period on the proposed rule. NMFS is now extending the comment period until September 25, 2009 to accommodate two public hearings scheduled on September 22, 2009, and the New England Fishery Management Council meeting September 22 24, 2009.

Endangered and Threatened Species; Designation of Critical Habitat for Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment; Final Rule
We, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), issue a final rule to revise the regulatory language that appeared in a final rule that published in the Federal Register of June 19, 2009. The final rule designated critical habitat for the Atlantic salmon (USalmo salar) Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment (GOM DPS) under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). We designated as critical habitat 45 specific areas occupied by Atlantic salmon at the time of listing that comprise approximately 19,571 km of perennial river, stream, and estuary habitat and 799 square km of lake habitat within the range of the GOM DPS and in which are found those physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species. We excluded approximately 1,256 km of river, stream, and estuary habitat and 100 square km of lake habitat from critical habitat pursuant to the ESA. We issue this final rule to revise the designated critical habitat for the expanded GOM DPS of Atlantic salmon to exclude all trust and fee holdings of the Penobscot Indian Nation, and we correct the table to add an ``E'' to indicate that Belfast Bay is excluded from critical habitat under the ESA for reasons of economics.
