This final rule distributes sector allocation carried over from fishing year 2020 into fishing year 2021 and corrects the regulations implementing Framework Adjustment 61 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan. This action is necessary to correct regulatory errors and to allocate carryover quota to sectors. The carryover adjustments are routine and formulaic, and industry expects them each year.
