Title: ●Amendment 7 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Dolphin Wahoo Fishery of the Atlantic  
Abstract: The intent of this amendment is to make regulations for dolphin and wahoo consistent with those existing regulations for snapper-grouper species. Amendment 7 to the Dolphin Wahoo Fishery Management Plan would allow fishermen to bring fillets of dolphin and wahoo from the Bahamas into the U.S. exclusive economic zone, as regulations already allow fillets of snapper-grouper species to be brought from the Bahamas into the U.S. exclusive economic zone. This rule would allow fishermen to bring fillets of dolphin and wahoo into the U.S. exclusive economic zone that were lawfully harvested in Bahamian waters, provided valid Bahamian fishing and cruising permits are on board the vessel, and the vessel is in transit through the Atlantic exclusive economic zone.
