Amendment 6 to the Fishery Ecosystem Plan for the Mariana Archipelago—Rebuilding Plan for Guam Bottomfish
In this final rule, NOAA Fisheries implements a rebuilding plan that includes annual catch limits and accountability measures for the overfished bottomfish stock complex in Guam. The Western Pacific Fishery Management Council recommended the rebuilding plan as part of Amendment 6 to the Fishery Ecosystem Plan for the Marianas Archipelago. This action is necessary to rebuild the overfished stock consistent with the requirements of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
