Background

A temporary rule was published in the Federal Register on October 12, 2006 (71 FR 60076), closing the commercial fisheries for golden tilefish and snowy grouper in the EEZ of the South Atlantic from 12:01 a.m., local time, October 23, 2006, until 12:01 a.m., local time, on January 1, 2007. NMFS determined that this closure was necessary to protect the golden tilefish and snowy grouper resources.

Need for Correction

FR Doc. E6-16934, published on October 12, 2006 (71 FR 60076), contains an error in the subject heading and requires correction.

On page 60076, in the 3rd column, in the subject heading, remove the phrase “Reef Fish Fishery of the Gulf of Mexico” and add in its place the phrase “Snapper-Grouper Fishery Off the Southern Atlantic States”.
