SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) authorizes the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) to prepare and amend fishery management plans for any fishery in waters under its jurisdiction. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) manages the shrimp fishery in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico under the Shrimp Fishery Management Plan (FMP). Regulations implementing the FMP appear at 50 CFR part 680: regulations at 50 CFR part 697 and subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 also pertain. The corresponding regulations established a mandatory electronic logbook (ELB) program, collecting location and fishing effort data, in addition to the standard logbooks completed by the fishermen (OMB Control No. 0648–0016). There are currently approximately 2,500 permitted vessels that harvest shrimp from the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), and the Council estimates that there are over 13,000 boats that fish in state waters. With such a large number of vessels of differing sizes, gears used, and fishing capabilities compounded by seasonal variability in abundance and price and the broad E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1 79448 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 249 / Monday, December 29, 2008 / Notices geographic distribution of the fleet, it is practically impossible to estimate the actual amount of fishing effort using current methods and data.

GF001] Cooperative Institute for Satellite Climate Studies AGENCY: National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service Program Office (NESDISPO), National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service (NESDIS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce. ACTION: Notice of rescission and of revised funding availability. SUMMARY: On October 7, 2008, the National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce (hereinafter, ‘‘NESDIS’’) published a notice of availability of funds (Docket No. 0809261277–81278– 01, I.D. GF001) to establish a NOAA Cooperative Institute for Satellite Climate Studies (73 FR 58560). That notice is hereby rescinded and is replaced with the following revised notice of funding availability. NESDIS invites applications for a Cooperative Institute (CI) that will focus on (1) climate and satellite research and applications, (2) climate and satellite observations and monitoring, and (3) climate research and modeling. Through this competition, NOAA intends to establish competitively a new CI according to the policy and procedures described in NOAA Administrative Order 216–107 and the Cooperative Institute Interim Handbook both available at www.nrc.noaa.gov/ci. The proposed CI should be composed of two or more member institutions (e.g., multiple universities). At least one research institution should be in Maryland, Washington DC or the adjacent states (Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Virginia). At least one research institution should be in North Carolina or the bordering states (Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia) and have a presence in Asheville, North Carolina. NOAA has identified three research themes that will address specific needs within the NOAA Mission Support Satellite Service program and the NOAA Climate Goal that would benefit from collaborations with the CI. The CI should possess outstanding capabilities to work in the three research themes summarized below, as well as possess the capability to conduct outreach and education PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 activities in support of these research themes. I. Climate and Satellite Research and Applications: Research conducted under this theme is associated with the development of new and innovative uses of non-NOAA satellite assets that can ultimately be transitioned into NOAA operations to support climate information needs. This theme also includes performing research and development aimed at improving the utilization of a long time series of satellite measurements that will offer NOAA scientists a homogeneous record of satellite radiances. II. Climate and Satellite Observations and Monitoring: Research conducted under this theme involves (1) designing indices and applications that incorporate satellite observations to detect, monitor and investigate climatic changes and their impacts on coastal and open ocean ecosystems, (2) identifying and meeting the satellite climate needs of a wide variety of users, including research, business and industry, and government and private sector users, and (3) contributing significantly to climate reanalysis projects when satellite data is a key input. III. Climate Research and Modeling: Research conducted under this theme is focused on improving climate forecasts on mesoscale, regional and global scales when satellite data is a key input, and developing regional ecosystem models that can incorporate satellite observations to predict the impact of climate change on these ecosystems, particularly those located in the Mid-Atlantic region. The CI is also expected to play a significant role in National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Test Bed projects when satellite data is a key input. This announcement provides requirements for the proposed CI and includes details for the technical program, evaluation criteria, and competitive selection procedures. Applicants should review the NOAA Administrative Order 216–107 and CI Interim Handbook prior to preparing a proposal for this announcement. DATES: Proposals must be received by NESDIS no later than February 3, 2009, 5 p.m., E.T. Proposals submitted after that date will not be considered. ADDRESSES: The standard application package is available at http:// www.grants.gov. For applicants without Internet access, an application package may be requested from Ingrid Guch, NOAA/NESDIS, 5200 Auth Road, Room 701, Camp Springs, Maryland 20746. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply online through the Grants.gov Web site. Paper submissions are acceptable only if Internet access is not E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act 
(Magnuson-Stevens Act) authorizes the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management 
Council (Council) to prepare and amend fishery management plans for any 
fishery in waters under its jurisdiction. National Marine Fisheries 
Service (NMFS) manages the shrimp fishery in the waters of the Gulf of 
Mexico under the Shrimp Fishery Management Plan (FMP). Regulations 
implementing the FMP appear at 50 CFR part 680: regulations at 50 CFR 
part 697 and subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 also pertain. The 
corresponding regulations established a mandatory electronic logbook 
(ELB) program, collecting location and fishing effort data, in addition 
to the standard logbooks completed by the fishermen (OMB Control No. 
0648-0016).
    There are currently approximately 2,500 permitted vessels that 
harvest shrimp from the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), and the Council 
estimates that there are over 13,000 boats that fish in state waters. 
With such a large number of vessels of differing sizes, gears used, and 
fishing capabilities compounded by seasonal variability in abundance 
and price and the broad

geographic distribution of the fleet, it is practically impossible to 
estimate the actual amount of fishing effort using current methods and 
data. The only practical way of improving the estimates of the amount 
and type of bycatch is by having a more precise means of estimating 
effort as the ELB provides.
    The currently approved reporting requirements are being renewed 
without change.

II. Method of Collection

    The electronic logbook autonomously collects effort data and is 
downloaded by NMFS personnel every 2-3 months. The electronic logbook 
will be removed from the vessel and downloaded at NMFS lab in 
Galveston, Texas. A new logbook will replace the removed logbook, a 
process taking less than one minute.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-0543.
    Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Regular submission.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit organizations.

removal 1 minute.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 150.
    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
