NMFS announced that the bigeye tuna longline fishery in the Eastern Pacific Ocean would be closed effective November 11. Any bigeye tuna already on board a fishing vessel on November 11 may be retained on board, transshipped, and/or landed, to the extent authorized by applicable laws and regulations, provided that the fish is landed within 14 days of November 11. NMFS published that 14 days after the effective date of November 11, 2013 would be November 18, 2013; however the correct date is November 25, 2013.
Accordingly, in the rule published on November 4, 2013 (78 FR 65887), on page 65888, in the second column, the date November 18, 2013, in the last sentence of the second paragraph is revised to read November 25, 2013.
