Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 10 / Friday, January 14, 2005 / Notices better understand the existing protections for marine resources within marine protected areas in the United States. This information would also support activities on marine protected areas by state and local governments, tribes, and other interested parties. The survey contains directed questions regarding the location, management and enforcement authorities, types of protections and restrictions, and the length of time those protections or restrictions are in place for each marine protected area. Basic information about the resources and activities at the sites will also be collected. It is expected that site managers from each marine protected area will fill out the survey. The collected information will be housed in a searchable database that will be made available to the public via the marine protected area website at mpa.gov. The survey has been in use for the last three years and this notice proposes to extend the data collection time period. The information will be collected using a dataform, available on a password protected website. This allows users to enter data at their own pace. The survey contains extensive embedded help and glossary files, as well as required Paperwork Reduction Act information. III. Data OMB Number: 0648–0449. Form Number: None.
