  • Description:
    "The Omnibus Amendment and environmental assessment (EA) will present and evaluate management alternatives that specify mechanisms to set acceptable biological catch (ABC), annual catch limits (ACLs), and accountability measures (AMs) for Atlantic mackerel, butterfish, Atlantic bluefish, spiny dogfish, summer flounder, scup, black sea bass, Atlantic surfclam, ocean quahog, and tilefish (hereafter referred to collectively as 'the managed resources'), contained within six Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) Fishery Management Plans (FMP) (section 4.0). Specifically, this Omnibus document would amend the Atlantic Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish FMP, Bluefish FMP, Spiny Dogfish FMP, Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass FMP, Surfclam and Ocean Quahog FMP and Tilefish FMP.[...]Although this Omnibus Amendment is being prepared primarily in response to the new requirements under MSA and requirements of NEPA, it will also address the requirements of the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA). When preparing an FMP or FMP amendment, the Council also must comply with the applicable requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA), the Information Quality Act (IQA), Regulatory Impact Review (RIR), and Executive Orders. These other applicable laws and executive orders help ensure that in developing an amendment, the Council considers the full range of alternatives and their expected impacts on the marine environment, living marine resources, and the affected human communities. This integrated document will contain all required elements of the FMP amendment as required by NEPA and information to ensure consistency with other applicable laws and executive orders"--Executive Summary.
