Comprehensive Amendment to the Fishery Management Plans (FMPs) of the U.S. Caribbean to Address Required Provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act
Details:
  • Description:
    The Caribbean Fishery Management Council (Council) developed the SEIS contained in this integrated fishery management plan (FMP) amendment to inform the public of its decisions about how best to address the required provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSFCMA) in federal fisheries of the U.S. Caribbean, while achieving the objectives of the Council's Spiny Lobster, Queen Conch, Reef Fish, and Coral FMPs. The SEIS describes and evaluates the biological, ecological, social, economic, and administrative impacts associated with a wide range of alternatives for: defining fishery management units and sub-units; specifying biological reference points and stock status determination criteria; regulating fishing mortality; rebuilding overfished fisheries; conserving and protecting yellowfin grouper; and achieving the MSFCMA bycatch mandates.
