Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; 2011 North and South Atlantic Swordfish Quotas
Document Number: 2011-15641
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-06-23
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
This proposed rule would adjust the North and South Atlantic swordfish quotas for the 2011 fishing year to account for 2010 underharvests and landings. This proposed rule incorporates International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) recommendations 10-02 and 09-03 into the quota adjustments for the 2011 fishing year. These recommendations extend, through the 2011 fishing year, the previously established baseline quotas for North and South Atlantic swordfish. Without this rule, the United States would be out of compliance with ICCAT recommendations.
