SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The final rule published on November 21, 2008, designated deepwater shrimp of the genus Heterocarpus as management unit species (MUS), and requires Federal permits and data reporting for deepwater shrimp fishing in Federal waters of the western Pacific (73 FR 70603). Also on November 21, 2008, NMFS published another final rule that designated three species of pelagic squid as management unit species, and established permitting and reporting requirements for squid jig fishing vessels (73 FR 70600). In the amendatory instruction for § 665.13 in both final rules, an identical paragraph designation was assigned for both new permits fees.

This correction makes a change to the amendatory instruction in the deepwater shrimp final rule to accurately designate the paragraphs in § 665.13. This change is necessary to prevent duplicate paragraph designation. In the amendatory instruction for § 665.13, the phrase, “...and add a new paragraph (f)(2)(vi)...”, is revised to read “...and add a new paragraph (f)(2)(vii)....”Start Printed Page 75623
