Document Number: 2022-03047
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2022-02-15
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS proposes to approve and implement Framework Adjustment 34 to the Atlantic Sea Scallop Fishery Management Plan that establishes scallop specifications and other management measures for fishing years 2022 and 2023.

This action would also address regulatory text that is unnecessary, outdated, or unclear. This action is necessary to prevent overfishing and improve both yield-per- recruit and the overall management of the Atlantic sea scallop resource.
