This document corrects the final rule, which published on April 15, 2003 (68 FR 18145) FR Doc. 03-8822, and which will become effective on May 15, 2003. The intext table entitled VII. NORTH PACIFIC FISHERY MANAGEMENT COUNCIL of 50 CFR part 600.725(v) was incorrect. This action corrects the heading by removing “Allowable gear types” and by adding in its place “Authorized gear types.” This action will not have any substantive regulatory effect.


This action corrects a typographic error, a non-discretionary technical change with no substantive effects. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Assistant Administrator of Fisheries (AA), NOAA, finds good cause to waive prior notice and comment procedures otherwise required by the section. NOAA finds that prior notice and comment are unnecessary as this final rule makes a minor, non-substantive change to correct wording in a heading of a table. NOAA finds that because of the technical, non-substantive nature of the correction, no particular public interest exists in this rule for which prior notice and comment would otherwise be needed. For the above reasons, the AA also finds good cause, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) not to delay for 30 days the effective date of this action.
