Document Number: 2021-06958
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-04-05
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS is closing the directed fishery for Management Area 3. This closure is required because NMFS projects 98 percent of the catch allotted to Management Area 3 has been caught. This action is intended to prevent or limit the overharvest of Atlantic herring in Management Area 3, which would result in additional quota reductions next year.
