The emergency rule for the January through February 2002 management measures for groundfish taken in the U.S. exclusive economic zone and state waters off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California, as authorized by the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan, was published in the Federal Register on January 11, 2002 (67 FR 1540), and corrected on January 28, 2002 (67 FR 3820). This emergency rule contained an additional error that requires correction.
1. On page 1544, in the first column, paragraph A.(14)(b)(iii), the last sentence is corrected and an additional sentence is added to read as follows:
“If a vessel uses both small footrope gear and midwater gear for a single species during the same cumulative limit period and the midwater gear limit is higher than the small footrope gear limit, the small footrope gear limit may not be exceeded with small footrope gear and counts toward the midwater gear limit. Conversely, if a vessel uses both small footrope gear and midwater gear for a single species during the same cumulative limit period and the small footrope gear limit is higher than the midwater gear limit, the midwater gear limit may not be exceeded with midwater gear and counts toward the small footrope gear limit.”Start Signature
