This action reduces the in-season possession limit adjustment trigger for southern red hake due to an annual catch limit overage in fishing year 2018. Reduction of the trigger is a non-discretionary action intended to minimize the potential for catch overages in the future. This action also reduces the in-season possession limit because the trigger implemented with this action has been reached.

Effective 08:45 hr local time August 25, 2020.
