Summary

NOAA Fisheries proposes to approve and implement Framework Adjustment 59 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan. This rule would set or adjust catch limits for 19 of the 20 multispecies (groundfish) stocks, and make minor changes to groundfish management measures. This action is necessary to respond to updated scientific information and to achieve the goals and objectives of the fishery management plan. The proposed measures are intended to help prevent overfishing, rebuild overfished stocks, achieve optimum yield, and ensure that management measures are based on the best scientific information available.
