Background

The final rule to implement the 2001 specifications for the Atlantic mackerel, squid, and butterfish fisheries was published on March 2, 2001 (66 FR 13024). In that rule, amendatory instruction 2 incorrectly stated that § 648.21(e) was revised. This amendatory instruction should have indicated that § 648.21 (f) was revised. This document corrects the error contained in the March 2, 2001, final rule by moving the text of the current § 648.21 (e) to § 648.21 (f) and reinstating the original language in § 648.21 (e). For the convenience of the user, amendatory instruction 2 and the related regulatory text are reprinted in their entirety.

Correction

Accordingly, the publication on March 2, 2001, of the 2001 specifications for the Atlantic mackerel, squid, and butterfish fisheries (I.D. 102600B), which appeared in the final regulations, was the subject of document FR Doc. 01-5133, is corrected as follows:
