ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

NMFS published in the Federal Register of February 3, 2000, a document implementing an inshore fee system for all pollock harvested under the inshore component (IC) of the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands (BS/AI) directed fishing allowance under section 206(b)(1) of the AFA. The fee system provides the means of repaying a $75 million loan to reduce fishing capacity in that fishery. Fees are first due and payable under the inshore fee system on February 10, 2000. Although the fee system provisions were established in a separate subpart G of part 679, the section numbering was duplicated inadvertently in another recently published BS/AI rule. The intent of this rule is to correct that error by renumbering the sections of Subpart G as §§ 679.70-679.76.

DATES:

Effective February 10, 2000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NMFS published a document in the Federal Register of February 3, 2000, (65 FR 5278)establishing a new subpart G consisting of §§ 679.60-679.66 to implement an inshore fee system for all pollock harvested under the IC of the BS/AI directed fishing allowance. Less than a week earlier, NMFS had published a document in the Federal Register of January 28, 2000, (65 FR 4520) establishing a new subpart F consisting of §§ 679.59-679.64 to implement major provisions of the AFA including sideboard directed fishing closures. Thus, §§ 679.60-679.64 of the rule published on January 28, 2000, would be replaced by the unrelated rule published on February 3, 2000. This correction renumbers the new subpart G as §§ 679.70-679.76. In addition, the reference to the definitions section of part 679 is corrected from § 679.01 to § 679.02.
