This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

1. Tuesday, October 23, 2007; Monkfish Advisory Panel meeting.
The Advisory Panel will review the analysis of alternatives under consideration in Framework 5 to the Monkfish FMP and make recommendations on preferred alternatives to the Monkfish Committee and New England and Mid-Atlantic Councils. Framework 5 alternatives will address changes to the biological reference points (as recommended by the recent stock assessment workshop), days-at-sea (DAS) carryover limits, monkfish landings under the 3-hour gillnet rule, Mid-Atlantic/Southern New England area large-mesh monkfish incidental catch limits, and the requirement to obtain a monkfish Letter of Authorization to fish in the northern management area.
2. Wednesday, October 24, 2007; Monkfish Oversight Committee meeting.
The Committee will review the analysis of alternatives under consideration in Framework 5 to the Monkfish FMP and consider the recommendations of the Monkfish Advisory Panel as well as public comment, and make recommendations on preferred alternatives to the New England and Mid-Atlantic Councils. Framework 5 alternatives will address changes to the biological reference points (as recommended by the recent stock assessment workshop), DAS carryover limits, monkfish landings under the 3-hour gillnet rule, Mid-Atlantic/Southern New England area large-mesh monkfish incidental catch limits, and the requirement to obtain a monkfish Letter of Authorization to fish in the northern management area.
Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before these groups for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during these meetings. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, provided the public has been notified of the Council's intent to take final action to address the emergency.
