The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) is considering modifications to the accountability measures for snapper-grouper species and golden crab.  Adjusting the accountability measure criteria in this amendment will help to bring consistency across species managed by the Council.  The Council is also considering alternatives to modify existing commercial and recreational sector allocations for dolphin.
