Title: Amendment 19 to the Atlantic Sea Scallop Fishery Management Plan  
Abstract: Amendment 19 would incorporate a specifications process into the Atlantic Sea Scallop Fishery Management Plan and change the start of the fishing year. Developing specifications to set annual or biennial allocations will allow for a more efficient process for setting annual allocations than currently possible through framework adjustments. By adjusting the start of the scallop fishing year, the National Marine Fisheries Service would be able to implement simple specifications actions at the start of the fishing year on a more consistent basis.
