Removal of Billfish Certificate of Eligibility Requirements

Overview

Action Status
Final Rule
Effective
10/21/2019

Summary

This final rule removes obsolete language in the Atlantic HMS regulations requiring that a Billfish Certificate of Eligibility accompany certain product. The requirement to possess a Billfish Certificate of Eligibility no longer applies because passage of 2018 amendments to the Billfish Conservation Act of 2012 prohibited the associated product sales. 

This final rule removes a now-obsolete requirement consistent with an already-effective statutory provision.
