  • Description:
    "The most recent assessment for the red grouper in the South Atlantic indicates that the stock is experiencing overfishing and is overfished (SEDAR 19 2010). When a stock is undergoing overfishing, fishery managers must implement management measures to end overfishing. In cases where stocks are overfished, the Councils and NOAA Fisheries Service must implement rebuilding plans. NOAA Fisheries Service notified the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (South Atlantic Council) of the status of the red grouper stock on June 9, 2010. The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) requires the implementation of measures within two years of notification. Therefore, a rebuilding plan for red grouper in the South Atlantic must be in place by June 2012 to end overfishing and rebuild the stock. Besides establishing a rebuilding plan, the South Atlantic Council is proposing the implementation or revision of the following items through this amendment: (1) maximum sustainable yield (2) minimum stock size threshold (3) rebuilding schedule (4) rebuilding strategy and acceptable biological catch (5) allocations (6) annual catch limits and optimum yield (7) annual catch targets (8) accountability measures"--Executive summary.
