Fisheries Off West Coast States; Coastal Pelagic Species Fisheries; Annual Specifications
NMFS proposes to implement an annual catch limit (ACL), harvest guideline (HG), and associated annual reference points for Pacific sardine in the U.S. exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the Pacific coast for the fishing season of January 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013. This rule is proposed according to the Coastal Pelagic Species (CPS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP). The proposed 2013 maximum HG for Pacific sardine is 66,495 metric tons (mt). The proposed initial overall commercial fishing HG, that is to be allocated across the three allocation periods for sardine management, is 57,495 mt. This amount would be divided across the three seasonal allocation periods for the directed fishery the following way: January 1-June 3019,123 mt; July 1-September 1422,998 mt; and September 15-December 3113,374 mt with an incidental set-aside of 1,000 mt for each of the three periods. This rule is intended to conserve and manage the Pacific sardine stock off the U.S. West Coast.

These articles, which are related to launch vehicles, missiles, rockets, torpedoes, bombs, mines, and other military explosive devices enumerated in USML Category IV, would be controlled under new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 0A604, 0B604, 0D604, 0E604, 9A604, 9B604, 9D604, and 9E604 on the CCL. In addition, this proposed rule would amend ECCNs 0D001, 0E001, 9B115, 9B116, 9D001, 9D002, 9D003, 9D104, 9E001, 9E002, 9E101, and 9E102 to make clarifications and conforming changes based on the proposed addition of the aforementioned 0x604 and 9x604 ECCNs to the CCL and proposed amendments by the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, to the list of articles controlled by USML Category IV. This is one in a planned series of proposed rules describing how various types of articles that the President determines no longer warrant control on the USML, as part of the Administration's Export Control Reform Initiative, would be controlled on the CCL in accordance with the requirements of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). This proposed rule is being published in conjunction with a proposed rule from the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, which would amend the list of articles controlled by USML Category IV. The citations, herein, to USML Category IV reflect the proposed amendments contained in the State Department's rule.
