Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Large Pelagic Fishing Survey. Form Number(s): None. OMB Approval Number: 0648–0380. Type of Request: Regular submission. Burden Hours: 4,689. Number of Respondents: 18,000. Average Hours per Response: Telephone survey, 8 minutes; dockside interview, 5 minutes and 1 minute and 30 seconds per interview telephone validation response; biological sampling, 1 minute; headboat captain telephone interview response, 4 minutes and 8 minutes per headboat at-sea survey response; North Carolina winter bluefin tuna dockside survey, 6 minutes; HMS characterization survey, 15 minutes. Needs and Uses: The Large Pelagic Fishing Survey consists of dockside and VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:52 May 29, 2008 Jkt 214001 telephone surveys of recreational anglers for large pelagic fish (tunas, sharks, and billfish) in the Atlantic Ocean. The survey provides the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) with information to monitor catch of bluefin tuna and marlin. Catch monitoring in these fisheries and collection of catch and effort statistics for all pelagic fish is required under the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. The information collected is essential for the United States to meet its reporting obligations to the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna. Due to funding limitations the Large Pelagic Fishing Survey has only been conducted from Maine through Virginia in previous years. In 2008 NMFS proposes to conduct pilot studies to characterize the recreational large pelagic fisheries in the South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean regions. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: Weekly, annually and on occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. OMB Desk Officer: David Rostker, (202) 395–3897.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    One of the goals of the Export Trading Company (ETC) Act of 1982 is 
to increase U.S. exports of goods and services by encouraging a more 
efficient provision of export trade services to U.S. producers. Section 
104 of the Act directs the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) to provide 
a service to facilitate contact between producers of exportable goods 
and services and firms offering export trade services. The Export 
Trading Company Contact Facilitation Service (CFS) is a database 
designed to carry out the goal of Section 104 of the Act by putting 
U.S. producers of goods and services together with U.S. export service 
providers.
    The DOC's International Trade Administration (ITA) maintains the 
CFS database of U.S. producers and export service providers (export 
trading and export management firms, export sales agents, freight 
forwarders, and other export trade service providers) through a public-
private partnership. The producers and export service providers 
voluntarily register their export interests online at http://
www.exportyellowpages.com for inclusion in the CFS. The Export Yellow 
Pages[reg], an ITA program, uses the CFS to help promote U.S. goods and 
services, and enable U.S. producers to locate export service providers.

print directory distributed worldwide. The CFS print and electronic 
directories are made available through ``The Export Yellow Pages''.

users of this data need current information about the listed companies.
