The agency's consistency determination and accompanying public information and data are available for inspection at the New York State Department of State offices located at One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, in Albany, New York.

In F-2019-1178, The stated purpose of the project is to formally integrate the Atlantic chub mackerel into the Atlantic Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish Fishery Managed Plan (MSB FMP). This proposed action is in response to increase in commercial fishery catches during 2013-2015 compared to earlier years, as well as concerns about the potential role of chub mackerel in the ecosystem as a prey species. The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council adopted an annual chub mackerel landings limit and a possession limit as part of the Unmanaged Forage Omnibus Amendment in 2017 which will expire after December 31, 2020.

Amending the MSB FMP to include Atlantic chub mackerel will allow the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to:

1) Consider managing the Atlantic chub mackerel off the U.S. east coast as a stock in the MSB FMP while meeting all Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and
Management Act (MSA) requirements for stocks in need of conservation and
management.
