SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A final rule was published in the Federal Register on November 15, 1999 (64 FR 61964), to revise recordkeeping and reporting regulations. Figures 1 and 3 to 50 CFR part 679 list Federal reporting areas and coordinates for the boundaries of those areas. Recently the coordinates of Figures 1 and 3 were plotted using a Geographic Information System. This highly accurate plotting procedure revealed several errors in the published points depicting the boundary between the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska. NMFS correctly revises the description of reporting areas 518 and 519 in Figure 1b and the description of reporting area 610 in Figure 3b.

Correction

In the final rule Revisions to Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements published in 64 FR 61964, November 15, 1999, FR Doc. 99-28294, correct Figure 1b to Part 679 and Figure 3b to part 679.

On page 61984, under Figure 1 to Part 679—BSAI Statistical and Reporting Areas: b. Coordinates, correctly revise the description of reporting areas 518 and 519 to read as follows:
