Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 148 / Thursday, August 2, 2007 / Notices programs. Amendment 2 also established a Monkfish Exemption Program, which requires the Regional Administrator (RA) to reallocate as exempted DAS any monkfish research DAS not allocated through the Monkfish RSA Program. These exempted DAS may be then used by vessels for the conduct of monkfish research activities during the current fishing year (e.g., FY 2007). On June 12, 2006, NMFS published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the 2007 Monkfish RSA Program (71 FR 33898), and solicited proposals for monkfish research activities to be conducted under this RSA program. Four proposals were received as part of this solicitation, and three were granted awards totaling 367 monkfish research DAS. As a result, there are 133 DAS available to be reallocated as exempted DAS during FY 2007. Therefore, the RA, pursuant to the regulations governing the monkfish fishery at 50 CFR 648.92(c)(1)(v), reallocates these unused research DAS from the FY 2007 Monkfish RSA Program, as exempted DAS, that may be used for the conduct of monkfish research projects during FY 2007. All requests for monkfish DAS exemptions under the Monkfish DAS Exemption Program must be submitted to the RA along with a complete application for an EFP. The requirements for submitting a complete EFP application are provided in the regulations implementing the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act at § 600.745(b). mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Classification This action is required by 50 CFR part 648 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. This document contains collection-ofinformation requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The information requested in an EFP application has been approved under Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number 0648–0309. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the PRA unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number.
