  • Description:
    The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (South Atlantic Council) is concerned that regulations implementing several recent snapper grouper amendments could increase the incentive to fish for golden tilefish. Therefore, the South Atlantic Council is proposing management measures that would limit participation in the golden tilefish sector of the snapper grouper fishery. Actions in Amendment 18B to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region consider alternatives that could: Limit Participation in the Golden Tilefish Portion of the Snapper Grouper Fishery, Establish Initial Eligibility Requirements for a Golden Tilefish Longline Endorsement, Establish an Appeals Process, Allocate Commercial Golden Tilefish Quota Among Gear Groups, Allow for Transferability of Golden Tilefish Endorsements, Adjust Golden Tilefish Fishing Year, Modify the Trip Limit for Fishermen Who Receive a Golden Tilefish Longline Endorsement, Establish Trip Limits for Fishermen Who Do Not Receive a Golden Tilefish Longline Endorsement. This Environmental Assessment has been prepared to analyze the effects of implementing regulations to achieve the actions listed above.
