DOC/NOAA RIN: 0648-BJ26 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: ●International Fisheries; Pacific Tuna Fisheries; Revisions to 2020 Commercial Fishing Restrictions for Pacific Bluefin Tuna in the Eastern Pacific Ocean 

A binding resolution may be adopted by the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) in the fall of 2019. This resolution would amend the current resolution on Pacific bluefin tuna that established catch limits applicable to 2019 and 2020, which NMFS has implemented by regulation under the Tuna Conventions Act. The amendment would likely increase the commercial catch limit in 2020. If adopted, this rulemaking action would implement that resolution.
