Title: Framework Adjustment 62 for Whiting, Red Hake, and Offshore Hake to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan 

This rulemaking action would implement the New England Fishery Management Council’s Framework 62 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan. Framework 62 would establish a ten-year maximum rebuilding schedule for southern red hake, reducing the acceptable biological catch to 75-percent of the fishing mortality rate at maximum sustainable yield. In implementing Framework 62, this action would also decrease the year-round possession limit from 5,000 lb to a dual 1,000-lb/600-lb. possession limit based on gear selectivity.
