Devilís Hole/Georgetown Hole (3.1 square miles)(SC),
Area 51 (2.99 square miles)(SC),
Area 53 site (2.99 square miles)(SC), and
Warsaw Hole (4 square mile)(FL).

Other items in the amendment include,

Fishing for and/or possessing snapper grouper species in these Spawning SMZs will be prohibited.
Revision to the boundary of the Charleston Deep Reef MPA,
Measures to address transit and anchoring provisions within newly designated Spawning SMZs.
A 10-year sunset provision whereby the Spawning SMZs designation would be discontinued unless spawning were documented is included, and a framework provision to reauthorize the Spawning SMZs is also included.
The amendment includes a System Management Plan (SMP) to specify the outreach, law enforcement, and monitoring/research projects necessary to effectively monitor and evaluate the Spawning SMZs.

Amendment Status: Secretarial Approval
