Atlantic Highly Migratory Species News - Sharks
Wednesday, April 24, 2013

The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for Amendment 5a to the 2006 Consolidated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP) is now available. The final rule, which would implement Amendment 5a, will publish after the end of the FEIS 30-day waiting period. This FEIS and and its analyses address the need to: 1) maintain rebuilding of sandbar sharks; 2) end overfishing and rebuild scalloped hammerhead and Atlantic blacknose sharks; and 3) establish a total allowable catch and commercial quota and recreational measures for Gulf of Mexico blacknose and blacktip sharks.

For more information, please see the attached listserv notice. Because the FEIS is a large file it is not attached here, but you can access it online at: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/FMP/AM5.htm
