Fisheries of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and South Atlantic; Coastal Migratory Pelagic Resources of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic; Commercial King and Spanish Mackerel Fisheries of the Gulf of Mexico; Control Date
This notice announces that the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) is considering additional management measures to further limit the number of participants or levels of participation in the commercial king and Spanish mackerel components of the coastal migratory pelagic fishery operating in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the Gulf of Mexico. If such management measures are implemented, the Council is considering June 30, 2009, as a possible control date for king mackerel and March 31, 2010, as a possible control date for Spanish mackerel. These dates may serve to determine eligibility of catch histories in the commercial king and Spanish mackerel fisheries. NMFS invites comments on the revision of these control dates.
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act Provisions; Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Monkfish Fishery
NMFS issues this final rule to amend the Monkfish Fishery Management Plan (FMP) to allow projects funded through the Monkfish Research Set-Aside (RSA) Program to carryover unused monkfish RSA days- at-sea (DAS) into the following fishing year. This final rule also makes minor technical changes to the monkfish regulations. The changes are purely technical amendments to ensure consistency with the operations of the Monkfish RSA Program and to clarify the intent of the regulations implementing this program.
