NMFS PROPOSES INITIAL 2006 BFT QUOTA SPECIFICATIONS

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) issued a proposed rule to set initial 2006 fishing year quotas for the Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) fishery and effort controls. NMFS also proposes restricted fishing days for: all Saturdays and Sundays from November 18, 2006 through January 31, 2007, and November 23, 2006, and December 25, 2006, inclusive, provided the fishery remains open. These days are intended to extend the General category BFT fishery into the late season for the southern Atlantic region. NMFS also proposes initial General category retention limits and a schedule of Angling category retention limits for the 2006 fishing year as follows: General category 3 BFT per vessel; 01 June 2006 – 31 August 2006;73 inches or greater. Angling category; 3 BFT per vessel; 01 June 2006 – 31 May 2007; 47 inches to less than 73 inches.
