Title: Fish Aggregating Device Design Requirements in Purse Seine Fisheries, IMO Number Requirements, and Bycatch Restrictions 

This proposed action would implement recent tropical tuna management measures and other decisions adopted by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, to which the United States is a member. Specifically, this proposed action would implement the adopted measures by putting in place new fish aggregating device (FAD) design requirements and other requirements regarding FADs for U.S. purse seine fishing vessels and expanding requirements for U.S. fishing vessel owners to obtain numbers issued under the ship identification number scheme established by the International Maritime Organization.
