Framework Action to allow transfer of Spanish mackerel caught with gillnet gear to another vessel and modify the king mackerel trip limit


This framework amendment would allow transfer of Atlantic migratory group Spanish mackerel caught with gillnet gear in excess of the trip limit to be transferred to another federally permitted vessel that has not yet reached the trip limit to minimize waste in the fishery.  The rule would also modify the commercial trip limit for king mackerel in the east coast Florida subzone.
