Title: Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; Atlantic Blacknose Shark Commercial Retention Limit 
Abstract: This rule would evaluate the management measures for blacknose sharks in the Atlantic region. It would consider, among other things, a range of commercial management measures in both directed and incidental shark fisheries including, but not limited to, retention limits. In addition, this action would address commercial retention limits to help prevent early closures of the non-blacknose small coastal shark management group and fully utilize the quota.
