The concept of inclusion of reverse conducting SIR junction shunts provides substantial benefits by: (1) Bypassing current flow from the inherent internal drain-body junction preventing it from injecting majority carriers and thus preventing slow reverse recovery and crystal degradation, and (2) enabling current to flow for voltages lower than the drainbody junction built in potential (e.g., approximately 3 V for SiC) and thus provides lower on-state losses than a PiN diode for the lower current range condition.

The numbers should be permanently affixed to, or painted on the port and starboard sides of the deckhouse or hull, and on an appropriate weather deck, so as to be clearly visible from an enforcement vessel or aircraft. Furthermore, fishermen that use longline gear must mark high-flyers and terminal buoys with their vessel identification number.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    Under current regulations at 50 CFR 635.6, fishing vessels 
permitted for Atlantic Highly Migratory Species must display their 
official vessel numbers on their vessels. Flotation devices attached to 
certain fishing gears must also be marked with the vessel's number to 
identify which vessel is responsible for the gear. These requirements 
are necessary for law enforcement and monitoring purposes.
    Specifically, all vessels owners that hold a valid Highly Migratory 
Species (HMS) permit, other than an HMS angling permit, are required to 
mark their vessels with their vessel identification number. The numbers 
should be permanently affixed to, or painted on the port and starboard 
sides of the deckhouse or hull, and on an appropriate weather deck, so 
as to be clearly visible from an enforcement vessel or aircraft. 
Furthermore, fishermen that use longline gear must mark high-flyers and 
terminal buoys with their vessel identification number. The gillnet 
fishermen must mark their terminal buoys, and handgear or harpoon 
fishermen must mark all buoys attached to their gear with their vessel 
identification number. Buoy gear fishermen must mark all flotation 
devices attached to certain fishing gears.

II. Method of Collection

    There is no form under this requirement. Official vessel numbers 
issued to vessel operators are marked on the vessel and on flotation 
devices attached to certain fishing gears, if applicable.
