Title: Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; Regulatory Amendment for the Management of Atlantic Swordfish 

Upon recommendation of the HMS Advisory Panel, this action would modify existing management measures for North Atlantic swordfish under the 2006 Consolidated FMP in U.S. Atlantic and Caribbean waters. This rulemaking would increase default retention limits for the Commercial Caribbean Small Boat (CCSB) and Swordfish General Commercial permits and adding inseason adjustment criteria for the CCSB permits. This proposed action is intended to provide additional opportunities to more fully harvest the U.S. North Atlantic swordfish quota, which has been significantly under harvested for many years.
