Bluefin Tuna Limits Adjusted for Angling Category

Bluefin Tuna Limits Adjusted for Angling Category

The daily Angling category retention limits for Atlantic bluefin tuna have been adjusted to maximize the usefulness of the information obtained from catches for biological sampling. Vessels permitted in the Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Angling and HMS Charter/Headboat categories are eligible to land bluefin tuna under the HMS Angling category quota. Therefore, NOAA Fisheries has adjusted the daily bluefin retention limits for the HMS Angling category quota to allow landing of school-size bluefin in North Carolina during the three-week period from March 24, 2007, through April 15, 2007, as described in a Federal Register notice. This action is intended to provide scientific data that would enhance future recreational fishing opportunities for the HMS Angling and HMS Charter/Headboat categories, while minimizing the risk of an overharvest of the HMS Angling category bluefin tuna quota.

These limits are effective through 11:59pm on April 15, 2007. For more information, contact Dianne.Stephan@noaa.gov.
