SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The emergency interim rule that was published July 17, 2001 (66 FR 37167), implements Steller sea lion protection measures and announces final 2001 harvest specifications for the groundfish fisheries of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Area and the Gulf of Alaska. As published, the final regulations contain errors that need to be corrected in Tables 7 and 27 to the preamble and in Tables 21 through 24 to 50 CFR part 679 by adding footnote reference numbers and footnotes.

Table 7 to the preamble inadvertently omitted a footnote. Table 27 to the Start Printed Page 44074preamble, which lists the final 2001 GOA groundfish harvest limitations (sideboards), inadvertently omitted entries for pollock C Season and D Season. That portion of Table 27 is reprinted in this document.

Tables 21 through 24 to 50 CFR part 679 are corrected by this document and are reprinted in their entirety.

Correction

Accordingly, in the emergency interim rule published on July 17, 2001 (66 FR 37167), FR Doc. 01-17850, is corrected as follows:

1. In Table 7 to the preamble, page 37173:

a. In the first column under the fourth entry from the top, “Hook-and-line Catcher Processors (≥ 60 ft LOA)” add a footnote reference number “3” to read: “Hook-and-line Catcher Processors (≥ 60 ft LOA)3”, and

b. Add the footnote at the end of Table 7 to read as follows: “3 Harvest of Pacific cod made by catcher processors less than 60 ft LOA using hook-and-line gear will accrue to the 80 percent allocation under § 679.20(a)(7)(i)(C)(1)(i) when the other non-trawl halibut mortality bycatch allowance becomes available on August 1, 2001.”

2. In Table 27 to the preamble, page 37176:

a. Correct the spelling of the second entry “Pacific code” to read: “Pacific cod”.

b. The following entries, which were inadvertently omitted from “Pollock”, “C Season (W/C areas only)” are added in this document. This portion of Table 27 should be inserted between the entries “Pollock” and “Pacific cod”:
