Title: ●Magnuson-Stevens Act Provisions; Fisheries off West Coast States; Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery; Specifications and Management Measures and FMP Amendment 21-1  
Abstract: Every other year, the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) makes recommendations to set biennial allowable harvest levels for Pacific Coast groundfish, and recommends management measures for commercial and recreational fisheries that are designed to achieve those harvest levels. This rule sets Overfishing Limits (OFLs), Acceptable Biological Catches (ABCs), and Annual Catch Limits (ACLs) for the species managed under the Pacific Coast Groundfish FMP. FMP Amendment 21-1 corrects minor inconsistencies and errors in the FMP.
