Due to the mandatory evacuation of the Florida Keys for Hurricane Rita, NMFS is cancelling a public hearing on the draft Consolidated Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP) and proposed rule that was scheduled for September 21, 2005, in Key West, FL. NMFS intends to reschedule the Key West public hearing at a later date. The draft Consolidated HMS FMP and the proposed rule describe a range of management measures that could impact fishermen and dealers for all HMS fisheries.
