Title: Rule to Relieve Gear and Seasonal Restrictions for Groundfish in Sectors 
Abstract:

The New England Fishery Management Council may recommend relieving gear and seasonal restrictions in various groundfish management sectors. Potential management measures for relief or adjustment include: restrictions on groundfish in the Closed Area II Yellowtail Flounder/Haddock Special Access Program, gillnet day limits on vessels fishing outside of the Gulf of Maine, and minimum mesh-size requirement for trawl nets for redfish trips. This proposed action would implement that recommendation.
