Summary

Correction of regulations published in a final rule on July 10, 2020, which reclassified sculpins as Ecosystem Component (EC) category, non-target species in both the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands (BSAI) (Amendment 121) and Gulf of Alaska (Amendment 110) Groundfish Fishery Management Plans (FMPs). In the implementing regulations, footnotes requiring the full retention of all rockfish species by catcher vessels (CVs) using hook-and-line, pot, or jig gear in the BSAI (Amendment 119) and Gulf of Alaska (Amendment 107) were unintentionally omitted from Tables 10 and 11 to 50 CFR part 679. This correcting amendment is therefore necessary to restore the footnotes as published in the final rule implementing Amendments 119 and 107 and to make other minor corrections.
