Document Number: E9-222
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-01-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
This document corrects the comment period and a date for a temporary rule that published in the Federal Register on January 2, 2009 (74 FR 38). That rule adjusted the 2009 total allowable catch amount (TAC) for the Bering Sea pollock fishery to ensure the Bering Sea pollock TAC does not exceed the appropriate amount based on the best available scientific information for pollock in the Bering Sea subarea. One typographical error specifies that comments are due on the date of publication and another typographical error specifies that comments are due on January 13, 2008. The correct date is January 13, 2009. The date that data became available is also corrected.
