SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On October 21, 2019, NMFS published a notification that informed the public that the Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Greater Atlantic Region, NMFS, made a preliminary determination that an application submitted by the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance for an exempted fishing permit (EFP) contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration. The document incorrectly listed the active period for the EFP as January 1, 2019, through April 30, 2019, instead of the correct active period of January 1, 2020, through April 30, 2020. This correction does not change the scope or impact of the proposed EFP. This correction is necessary to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on the application with correct and complete information.

Correction

In the Federal Register of October 21, 2019, in FR Doc 2019-22854, on page 56181, column 3, in the first full paragraph, the third sentence is corrected to read as follows: “The EFP would be active from January 1, 2020, through April 30, 2020.”
