SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A final rule was published in the Federal Register on 61 FR 31227 (June 19, 1996), to consolidate six parts (671, 672, 673, 675, 676, and 677) in title 50 of the CFR into one new part (50 CFR part 679). A new prohibition to § 679.7 was created by combining the prohibitions from the formerly separate six parts. Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) fisheries prohibitions were placed into § 679.7 (f).

An error was made in citing the cross reference within one paragraph placed in the new part. The former prohibition § 676.16 (d) referred the reader to an exception at § 676.17. Section 676.17 (a), entitled “vessel clearance,” described vessel landing procedures and became § 679.5(l)(3) entitled “vessel clearance.” Section 676.17(b), entitled “Ten Percent Adjustment Policy,” described a requirement to harvest within the allocated IFQ permit amount. This second paragraph became § 679.40 (d). The former prohibition § 676.16 (d) became § 679.7 (f)(4).

The error occurs because the cross reference at § 679.7 (f)(4) incorrectly refers the reader to an exception at § 679.5 (l)(3); the correct cite is § 679.40 (d).
