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 reef fish fishery in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico under the Reef Fish Fishery Management Plan (FMP). The regulations implementing the FMP appear at 50 CFR part 622, and regulations at 50 CFR part 697 and subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 also pertain. The corresponding regulations established a mandatory VMS requirement. The Reef Fish FMP contains several area-specific regulations where fishing is restricted or prohibited in order to protect habitat or spawning aggregations, or to reduce fishing pressure in areas that are heavily fished. Unlike size, bag, and trip limits, where the catch can be monitored onshore when a vessel returns to port, area restrictions require at-sea enforcement. E:\FR\FM\12JAN1.SGM 12JAN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    StormReady and TsunamiReady are voluntary programs offered to 
provide guidance and incentive to officials who wish to improve their

form and TsunamiReady/StormReady Application form to apply for initial 
StormReady or TsunamiReady/StormReady recognition and renewal of that 
recognition every three years; thus, a typical StormReady community 
would use this form 3 times every 10 years. The government will use the 
information collected by application to determine whether a community 
has met all of the guidelines, e.g. for community preparedness and 
local warning dissemination, to receive StormReady and/or TsunamiReady 
recognition.

II. Method of Collection

    Applications will be submitted on paper (faxed or mailed) or 
electronically.
