Title: Framework Adjustment 61 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan 

In response to action by the New England Fishery Management Council due to new scientific information, the proposed action would implement management measures included in Framework Adjustment 61 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (Framework 61). The proposed action would set fishing years 2021-2023 specifications for about half of groundfish stocks, and fishing year 2021 total allowable catches (TAC) for the three U.S./Canada stocks Eastern Georges Bank cod, Eastern Georges Bank haddock, and Georges Bank yellowtail flounder.  This action would also address white hake rebuilding measures and potentially create a universal sector exemption to allow fishing for redfish, pollock, and haddock.
