Summary

The rule would modify the on-board possession limit for federal for-hire trips in the Gulf of Mexico.  It would increase the required trip duration to greater than 30 hours, but would allow anglers to retain the second daily bag limit at any time after the federal for-hire vessel leaves the dock.  All other requirements to retain the possession limit would be unchanged.
