SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to collect 
information about fishing expenses in the American Samoa, Guam, and the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) boat-based reef 
fish, bottomfish, and pelagics fisheries with which to conduct economic 
analyses that will improve fishery management in those fisheries; 
satisfy NMFS' legal mandates under Executive Order 12866, the Magnuson-
Steven Fishery Conservation and Management Act (U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the 
National Environmental Policy Act; and quantify achievement of the 
performances measures in the NMFS Strategic Operating Plans. An example 
of these performance measures: the economic data collected will allow 
quantitative assessment of the fisheries sector's social and economic 
contribution, linkages and impacts of the fisheries sector to the 
overall economy through Input-output (I-O) models analyses. The results 
from I-O analyses will not only provide indicators of social-economic 
benefits of the marine ecosystem, a performance measure in the NMFS 
Strategic Operating Plans, but also be used to assess how fishermen and 
economy will be impacted by and respond to regulations likely to be 
considered by fishery managers. These data will be collected in 
conjunction with catch and effort data already being collected in this 
fishery as part of its creel survey \1\ program. In general, 
participation in the economic data collection will be voluntary.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Creel Survey Program is one of the major data collection 
systems to monitor fisheries resources in these three geographic 
areas. The survey monitors the islands' fishing activities and 
interviews returning fishermen at the most active launching ramps/
docks during selected time periods on the islands.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. Method of Collection

    The economic surveys will be conducted in-person interview when a 
fishing trip is completed. Captains of selected vessels by the creel 
survey will be required to report information about trip costs, input 
usage, and input prices.
