ADDRESSES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract In implementing mitigation measures to reduce interactions between seabirds and the Hawaii-based pelagic longline fishery, the National Marine Fisheries PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Service (NMFS) is also requiring longline vessel operators to notify NMFS in the event an endangered shorttailed albatross is hooked or entangled during fishing operations. Following the retrieval of the seabird from the ocean, as required by Federal regulations, the vessel captain must record the conditions of the injured short-tailed albatross on a recovery data form. The information will be used by a veterinarian in providing advice to the captain caring for the short-tailed albatross. If the albatross is dead, the vessel captain must attach an identification/information tag to the carcass, as well as the specimen bag, to assist the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) biologists in follow-up studies on the specimen. This collection is one of the terms and conditions contained in a biological opinion issued by FWS and is intended to maximize the probability of the long-term survival of short-tailed albatross incidentally taken by longline gear. II. Method of Collection Paper data forms, sea to shore contact via vessel monitoring system unit (VMS), telephone or single side-band radio are required from participants, and methods of submittal include mail and facsimile transmission of paper forms. III. Data OMB Number: 0648–0456. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; and business or other forprofit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2. Estimated Time Per Response: 1 hour for notification; 1 hour for the report; and 30 minutes to attach specimen identification tags. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 5. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $100. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques E:\FR\FM\17MRN1.SGM 17MRN1
