This rule proposes to approve and implement Framework 38, which would establish scallop specifications and other measures for fishing years 2024 and 2025, including changes to the catch, effort, and quota allocations and adjustments to the rotational area management program for fishing year 2024, and default specifications for fishing year 2025, as recommended by the Council.
