Notice of a new Privacy Act System of Records: COMMERCE/NOAA System-16; Crab Economic Data Report for Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI) off the coast of Alaska. AGENCY: ACTION: North Pacific Fishery Management Council; Notice of Public Meeting PO 00000 Privacy Act of 1974: System of Records Sfmt 4703 SUMMARY: This notice establishes the Department’s proposal for a new system of records under the Privacy Act. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Alaska Region, is creating a new system of records for the mandatory collection of crab economic data. Eight versions of a form, specific to the four types of crab activity and one specific for historical information that occurred prior to the Crab Rationalization Program and one for annual information to be submitted annually, entitled, ‘‘Crab Economic Data Report (EDR),’’ will be used to collect information on costs of fishing and processing, revenues for harvesters and processors, and employment information required under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). Information obtained through the EDR would be accessible by the independent Data Collection Agent (DCA) under cooperative agreement with NMFS, Alaska Region, to distribute forms, receive forms, review, and verify information in the crab economic surveys (see SYSTEM LOCATION). Each vessel owner or lessee and each plant owner or lessee that participated in the specified crab fisheries since 1996 will be required to submit a EDR to the DCA by mail, FAX, or electronic file. DATES: To be considered, written comments must be submitted on or before April 4, 2005. Unless comments are received, the new system of records E:\FR\FM\03MRN1.SGM 03MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 41 / Thursday, March 3, 2005 / Notices will become effective as proposed on the date of publication of a subsequent notice in the Federal Register. Comments may be mailed to Sue Salveson, Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Alaska Region, National Marine Fisheries Service, P.O. Box 21668, Juneau, AK , 99802, Attn: Lori Durall, or delivered to the Federal Building, 709 West 9th Street, Juneau, AK, 99802. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patsy A. Bearden, 907–586–7008. NMFS, Alaska Region, is creating a new system of records for two purposes: The first is to evaluate the economic effects of the Crab Rationalization Program, specifically the effects on the harvesting and processing sectors, to determine the economic efficiency and distributional effects of the Program. The second is to provide information to the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission to assist in anti-trust analysis of the Program. All vessel owners or lessees and plant owners or lessees who participated in the specified crab fisheries since 1996 will be required to submit the appropriate EDR (specific to the type of activity and whether historical or annual) to the NOAA-approved DCA. The owner will identify lessee on the EDR (name and other contact information). If the vessel or plant owner or lessee did not conduct crab activity for a given year, he or she would send in only the certification page from the EDR for that year declaring no activity for that year. The system is designed as follows: (1) Participants will be required to submit a historical EDR and an annual EDR to the NOAA-approved DCA; (2) The DCA will provide the EDR information without individual identifiers to NMFS Alaska Region, State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and the North Pacific Fishery Management Council; (3) Upon request, the DCA will provide the EDR information with individual identifiers to NOAA Office for Enforcement and the U.S. Coast Guard, and (4) Upon request, DCA will provide the EDR information with individual identifiers to the DOJ and FTC to assist in anti-trust analysis of the Program.
