Background

A final rule was published in the Federal Register on October 12, 2000 Start Printed Page 64896(65 FR 60587), to implement Amendment 58 to the FMP. In the regulatory text portion of the final rule, a reference to Figure 8a and Figure 8b were inadvertently omitted from the revised definition for “Chinook Salmon Savings Area of the BSAI.” Also, the paragraph designations were incorrectly labeled for § 679.21(e)7)(viii).

Correction

In the final rule to implement Amendment 58 to the FMP, which revises the Chinook Salmon Savings Area, published at 65 FR 60587, October 12, 2000, FR Doc. 00-26086, the following corrections are made:
