Endangered and Threatened Species; Take of Anadromous Fish, 56892-56893 [05-19500]

Download as PDF 56892 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 188 / Thursday, September 29, 2005 / Notices detail how the data gathered from the research will be used to enhance the understanding of the fishery resource or contribute to the body of information on which management decisions are made. If not directly related to priorities listed in this solicitation, provide justification why the proposed project should be considered. (25 points) 2. Technical/scientific merit: This criterion assesses whether the approach is technically sound and/or innovative, if the methods are appropriate, and whether there are clear project goals and objectives. Special emphasis will be given to proposals that foster and improve cooperative interactions with NMFS. A clear definition of the approach to be used including description of field work, theoretical studies, and laboratory analysis to support the proposed research, and the ability of the applicant to utilize all allocated research DAS during the 2006 fishing year in the area and time proposed is important. The time frame for utilizing research DAS and conducting the proposed research should be clearly specified. Activities that take place over a wider versus narrower geographical range, where appropriate, are preferred. (25 points) 3. Overall qualifications of the project: This criterion assesses whether the applicant, and team members, posses the necessary education, experience, training, facilities, and administrative resources to accomplish the project. This includes demonstration of support, cooperation and/or collaboration with the fishing industry, and qualifications/ experience of project participants. Where appropriate, combined proposals involving multiple principal investigators are preferred versus separate stand-alone proposals on related projects. For proposals involving multiple vessels, special attention will be given to specification of safeguards to ensure that the authorized DAS setaside will not be exceeded. (15 points) 4. Project costs: This criterion evaluates the budget to determine if it is realistic and commensurate with the project needs and time frame. Costeffectiveness of the project is considered. The anticipated revenue from the DAS set-aside should be commensurate with estimated project costs, and generally should not exceed 2.5 times the cost of the associated research. Economic and budget projections should be quantified, to the extent possible. Where appropriate, use of existing equipment (fishing gear) is preferred versus acquisition of new equipment. (25 points) 5. Outreach and education: This criterion assesses whether the project VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:52 Sep 28, 2005 Jkt 205001 involves a focused and effective education and outreach strategy regarding NOAA’s mission to protect the Nation’s natural resources. This includes identification of anticipated benefits, potential users, likelihood of success, and methods of disseminating results. Where appropriate, data generated from the research must be formatted in a manner consistent with NMFS and Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP) databases. A copy of this format is available from NMFS. (10 points) All other requirements for this solicitation remain the same. Classification Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) This document contains collection-ofinformation requirements subject to the PRA. The use of Standard Forms 424, 424A, 424B, SF-LLL, 269, 272, and CD– 346 has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the respective control numbers 0348– 0043, 0348–0044, 0348–0040, 0348– 0046, 0348–0039, 0348–0003, and 0605– 0001.
