On November 30, 2004, NMFS published in the Federal Register a final rule that established the opening and closure dates of the first trimester season for the Atlantic commercial shark fishery (69 FR 69537). In that rule, the closure dates for LCS in the Gulf of Mexico and the South Atlantic in Table 1 were inverted. This document corrects that error.
On page 69538, in Table 1, the first two rows are corrected to read as follows:
|Species Group||Region||First Trimester Season Opening Dates||First Trimester Season Closure Dates|
|Large Coastal Sharks||Gulf of Mexico||January 1 - February 28, 2005, 11:30 p.m. local time||February 28, - April 30, 2005, 11:30 p.m. local time|
|South Atlantic||January 1 - February 15, 2005, 11:30 p.m. local time||February 15, - April 30, 2005, 11:30 p.m. local time|
