FR Notice – Annual Catch Limit and Accountability Measures; Main Hawaiian Islands Deep 7 Bottomfish (June 24, 2019)

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: This final rule establishes an annual catch limit (ACL) of 492,000 lb for Deep 7 bottomfish in the main Hawaiian Islands (MHI) for each of the
three fishing years 2018–19, 2019–20, and 2020–21. If NMFS projects that the
fishery will reach the ACL in any given fishing year, NMFS would close the
commercial and non-commercial fisheries for MHI Deep 7 bottomfish in
Federal waters for the remainder of that fishing year as an accountability
measure (AM). This rule also makes housekeeping changes to the Federal bottomfish fishing regulations. This rule supports the long-term sustainability of Deep 7 bottomfish.
