NOAA Fisheries Requests Public Comment on Action to Allow Transfer of Black Sea Bass Pot Endorsements

(Comment period ends October 22, 2012)

NOAA Fisheries requests public comments on a resubmitted action from Amendment 18A to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (Amendment 18A). Amendment 18A was implemented on July 1, 2012, and established a black sea bass pot endorsement program. Amendment 18A also contained an action to allow black sea bass pot endorsements to be transferred to individuals or entities that hold or simultaneously obtain a South Atlantic Unlimited Snapper-Grouper Permit. However, Amendment 18A had the wrong preferred alternative designated and there were discrepancies in the record regarding the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council's discussion of the alternatives. Therefore, NOAA Fisheries did not implement the transferability action in Amendment 18A and the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council addressed the action in a separate amendment.
