Advance notice of proposed rulemaking; notice of a control date for the purposes of controlling entry in the deep-sea red crab fishery; correction.


On March 1, 2000, NMFS published an announcement that it is considering, and is seeking public comment on, proposed rulemaking to control future access to the deep-sea red crab (Chaceon quinquedens) resource if a management regime is developed and implemented under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act that limits the number of participants in the fishery. The announcement indicated that written comments may be sent to the New England Fishery Management Council at the address provided in the announcement and may also be submitted by facsimile (fax). However, an incorrect fax number was provided. This document corrects the error.


Written comments must be received on or before 5:00 p.m., local time, March 31, 2000.


Written comments should be sent to Paul J. Howard, Executive Director, New England Fishery Start Printed Page 14520Management Council, 50 Water Street, Mill 2, Newburyport, MA 01950. Mark the outside of the envelope, “Comments on Deep-sea Red Crab Control Date.” Comments may also be sent via fax to (978) 465-3116.
