COMMENT PERIOD ON PROPOSED FISHING VESSEL REGULATIONS EXTENDED

 WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Coast Guard today announced it has extended the comment period 60 days to Feb. 28, 1993, on proposed rulemaking that would improve the overall safety of commercial fishing vessels.
 The notice, originally published in the Federal Register Oct. 27, 1992, requests comments on stability standards for fishing vessels less than 79 feet long, the requirement for survival craft on fishing vessels that carry fewer than four individuals on board and operate within 12 miles of the coastline, and the criteria that will be employed for the administration of specific exemptions as authorized by 46 U.S.C. 4506.
 Other areas being addressed include proposed criteria for training instructors and development of course curricula, proposed criteria for termination of unsafe operations, proposed stability requirements for assignment of load lines and implementation of safety requirements imposed by the Aleutian Trade Act of 1990 on fish tender vessels operating in the Aleutian trade.
 A 24-hour toll-free telephone number at the Coast Guard will take verbal comments beginning Dec. 28. The number is 800-282-8724. Persons using the number should provide the same information required for written comments -- name, address, identification of the rulemaking (CGD88-079a), the section to which the comment applies and, if desired, a request for the Coast Guard to acknowledge receipt of the comment.
 Written comments should be mailed to the Executive Secretary, Marine Safety Council (G-LRA-2), U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters, 2100 Second St. S.W., Washington, D.C. 20593-0001.
