SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Region 
manages the Atlantic surf clam and ocean quahog fisheries of the 
Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the Northeastern United States through 
the Atlantic Surf Clam and Ocean Quahog Fishery Management Plan (FMP). 
The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council prepared the FMP pursuant 
to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act 
(Magnuson Act). The regulations implementing the FMP are specified 
under 50 CFR part 648.70.
    The recordkeeping and reporting requirements at Sec.  648.70 and 
Sec.  648.74 form the basis for this collection of information. NMFS 
Northeast Region requests information from Atlantic surf clam and ocean 
quahog individual transferable quota (ITQ) allocation holders in order 
to process and track requests from the allocation holders to transfer 
quota allocation to another entity. NMFS Northeast Region also requests 
information from Atlantic surf clam and ocean quahog permit holders in 
order to track and properly account for Atlantic surf clam and ocean 
quahog harvest that is shucked at sea. Because there is not a standard 
conversion factor for estimating unshucked product from shucked 
product, NMFS requires vessels that choose to shuck product at sea to 
carry on board the vessel a NMFS approved observer to certify the 
amount of Atlantic surf clam and ocean quahog harvested. This 
information, upon receipt, results in an increasingly more efficient 
and accurate database for management and monitoring of fisheries of the 
Northeastern U.S. EEZ.
