SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In the final rule implementing the 2000 annual specifications for summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass, the regulations were inadvertently made effective for the same time frame as the quotas (i.e., for the calendar year). The regulations were meant to remain effective until revised. This correction clarifies that the regulations are final, not temporary, regulations.

Correction

In FR Doc. 00-12993, published in the Federal Register issue of May 24, 2000, on page 33486, in column 2, correct the DATES caption to read as follows:

DATES:

Effective 0001 hours, May 24, 2000, except that the quotas identified in the preamble are effective 0001 hours, May 24, 2000, through 2400 hours, December 31, 2000.

Classification

This action is required by 50 CFR part 648 and is exempt from review under E.O. 12866.
