Fisheries off West Coast States; Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery; Suspension of the Primary Pacific Whiting Season for the Shore-based Sector South of 42° North Latitude
NMFS announces the suspension of the Pacific whiting (whiting) fishery primary season for the shore-based sector south of 42[deg] N. lat. at 8 p.m. local time (l.t.) May 16, 2010. ``Per trip'' limits for whiting were reinstated until 0001 hours June 15, 2010, at which time the primary season for the shore-based sector opens coastwide.

This action is intended to keep the harvest of whiting at the 2010 allocation levels.
Atlantic Coastal Fisheries Cooperative Management Act Provisions; Weakfish Fishery
On May 6, 2010, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (Commission) found the State of North Carolina out of compliance with the Commission's Interstate Fishery Management Plan (ISFMP) for Weakfish. Subsequently, the Commission referred the matter to NMFS in a letter dated May 7, 2010, under delegation of authority from the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary), for Federal non-compliance review under the provisions of the Atlantic Coastal Fisheries Cooperative Management Act (Atlantic Coastal Act). The Atlantic Coastal Act mandates that NMFS must review the Commission's non-compliance referral and make specific findings within 30 days after receiving the referral. On May 25, 2010, the Secretary was notified by the Commission that North Carolina had taken corrective action to comply with the management measures in the ISFMP, and the Commission now finds North Carolina in compliance with the Plan. NMFS concurs with this finding and concludes its obligations for this particular non-compliance referral.
