Abstract The purpose of this effort is to do an approximate 10-year replication of a 1995–96 study that established baseline information on the knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of management strategies and regulations of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS). The baseline was conducted for three user groups: (1) Commercial fishermen, (2) Dive Shop Owners/ Operators, and (3) members of three local environmental groups (Last Stand, Reef Relief, and Sanctuary Friends). In 1998, the Socioeconomic Research and Monitoring Program for the FKNMS was established and the 1995–96 study results were incorporated as baseline measures. The National Marine Sanctuaries Act (16 U.S.C. 1431, et seq.) authorizes the use of monitoring within National Marine Sanctuaries (NMS). The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and Protection Act (Public Law 101–605, Sec 7 (5)) also authorizes monitoring. The Management Plan and regulations for the FKNMS were not implemented until July 1997, which established 22 Sanctuary Preservation Areas (SPAs) and one Ecological Reserve (ER) that are ‘‘no take’’ zones. Another ER, the Tortugas, was established as part of a two-year public process and its regulations went into effect in July 2002. All consumptive or take activities were displaced from these zones. Eighteen (18) of the SPAs were also created to resolve user conflicts, while four were set aside for ‘‘Research Only.’’ In creating these special zones, socioeconomic impact analyses were done as required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). In addition, a Regulatory Impact Review and an Initial and Final Regulatory E:\FR\FM\15JNN1.SGM 15JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 114 / Wednesday, June 15, 2005 / Notices Flexibility Analysis (if small businesses are potentially impacted by the no take regulations) were conducted. However, many of the benefits and costs identified in these analyses are speculative in nature and therefore a great deal of uncertainty about both the benefits and the costs. The 10-year replication of the 1995–96 study will support an assessment of any changes in knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of the no-take areas and establish new baselines on several new regulations established since 1995–96.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The purpose of this effort is to do an approximate 10-year 
replication of a 1995-96 study that established baseline information on 
the knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of management strategies and 
regulations of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS). The 
baseline was conducted for three user groups: (1) Commercial fishermen, 
(2) Dive Shop Owners/Operators, and (3) members of three local 
environmental groups (Last Stand, Reef Relief, and Sanctuary Friends). 
In 1998, the Socioeconomic Research and Monitoring Program for the 
FKNMS was established and the 1995-96 study results were incorporated 
as baseline measures.
    The National Marine Sanctuaries Act (16 U.S.C. 1431, et seq.) 
authorizes the use of monitoring within National Marine Sanctuaries 
(NMS). The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and Protection Act 
(Public Law 101-605, Sec 7 (5)) also authorizes monitoring. The 
Management Plan and regulations for the FKNMS were not implemented 
until July 1997, which established 22 Sanctuary Preservation Areas 
(SPAs) and one Ecological Reserve (ER) that are ``no take'' zones. 
Another ER, the Tortugas, was established as part of a two-year public 
process and its regulations went into effect in July 2002. All 
consumptive or take activities were displaced from these zones. 
Eighteen (18) of the SPAs were also created to resolve user conflicts, 
while four were set aside for ``Research Only.'' In creating these 
special zones, socioeconomic impact analyses were done as required 
under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). In addition, a 
Regulatory Impact Review and an Initial and Final Regulatory

[[Page 34747]]

Flexibility Analysis (if small businesses are potentially impacted by 
the no take regulations) were conducted. However, many of the benefits 
and costs identified in these analyses are speculative in nature and 
therefore a great deal of uncertainty about both the benefits and the 
costs. The 10-year replication of the 1995-96 study will support an 
assessment of any changes in knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of 
the no-take areas and establish new baselines on several new 
regulations established since 1995-96.

II. Method of Collection

    Paper questionnaires and in-person interviews will be used to 
collect information.

III. Data

    OMB Number: None.
    Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Regular submission.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-
profits organizations; not-for-profit institutions.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 255.
    Estimated Time Per Response: 2 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 491.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0.

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

technology.
