Correction to the proposed 1999 fishing quotas for Atlantic surf clams, ocean quahogs, and Maine mahogany quahogs

Date: November 20, 1998

Dear Permit and/or Allocation Owner:

This letter is to inform you of a correction to the proposed 1999 fishing quotas for Atlantic surf clams, ocean quahogs, and Maine mahogany quahogs published in the Federal Register on November 13, 1998.

Do to a clerical error at the Office of the Federal Register, the notice incorrectly stated that public comments must be received on or before December 17, 1998. The correct date that public comments must be received is on or before December 7, 1998. The Federal Register is scheduled to print a correction notice to rectify this error on November 20, 1998.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact David Gouveia at (978) 281-9280.
