Notice of Development of an Experimental Ocean Economy Satellite Account (To Define and Measure the Economic Impact of Ocean and Great Lakes Related Activities)
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is soliciting comments from the public on the development of a new set of national statistics that would provide information on the economic activity generated by ocean related transactions in the United States.
Endangered and Threatened Species; Take of Anadromous Fish
Notice is hereby given that the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has provided a Fishery Management and Evaluation Plan (FMEP), and the Nez Perce Tribe has provided a Tribal Resource Management Plan (TRMP), pursuant to the protective regulations promulgated for Pacific salmon and steelhead under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The FMEP and TRMP specify the implementation of fisheries targeting steelhead in the Snake River Basin. This document serves to notify the public of the availability of the FMEP, and a Proposed Evaluation and Pending Determination (PEPD) on the Nez Perce Tribe's TRMP, for comment prior to a decision by NMFS whether to approve the proposed fisheries.
Determination of Overfishing or an Overfished Condition
This action serves as a notice that NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary), has found that the following stocks are subject to overfishing, overfished, or approaching an overfished condition. Atlantic herring and Georges Bank winter flounder are now approaching an overfished condition. South Atlantic blueline tilefish, Gulf of Mexico lane snapper, and Eastern Pacific Ocean yellowfin tuna are now subject to overfishing. Atlantic bigeye tuna is now overfished and remains subject to overfishing, Atlantic blue marlin and Pacific bluefin tuna remain both subject to overfishing and overfished. St. Matthew Island blue king crab is now overfished. NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary, notifies the appropriate regional fishery management council (Council) whenever it determines that overfishing is occurring, a stock is in an overfished condition, or a stock is approaching an overfished condition.
