The final rule, which would implement Amendment 5a, will publish after the end of the FEIS 30-day waiting period. This FEIS and and its analyses address the need to: 1) maintain rebuilding of sandbar sharks; 2) end overfishing and rebuild scalloped hammerhead and Atlantic blacknose sharks; and 3) establish a total allowable catch and commercial quota and recreational measures for Gulf of Mexico blacknose and blacktip sharks.
