ADDRESSES: I. Abstract The 1990 reauthorization of the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) authorized an awards program to ‘‘implement a program to promote excellence in coastal zone management by identifying and acknowledging outstanding accomplishments in the field.’’ As authorized in Section 314 of the CZMA, the Walter B. Jones Awards recognize three categories of excellence: Coastal Steward of the Year, Excellence in Local Government, and Excellence in Coastal and Marine Graduate Study. The CZMA authorizes NOAA to conduct public ceremonies to acknowledge such awards, which allows NOAA to fund invitational travel and purchase awards for the Jones Awards. In conjunction with the Walter B. Jones Awards, NOAA instituted several additional categories of awards, to recognize additional contributions to ocean and coastal resource management, including Volunteer of the Year, Nongovernmental Organization of the Year, Excellence in Promoting Cultural and Ethnic Diversity (in honor of Secretary Ronald Brown), Excellence in Business Leadership, and the Susan Snow Cotter Award for Excellence in Ocean and Coastal Resource (NOAA re-named this award in honor of Susan Snow Cotter in 2007). As part of conducting the awards program, NOAA will distribute a ‘‘Call for Nominations’’ to representatives from Federal, state, local and nongovernmental organizations and Members of Congress that work in, are knowledgeable of or benefit from, ocean and coastal resource management. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES II.

Fishing vessels permitted to participate in federally-permitted fisheries in the Northeast are required to submit logbooks containing catch and effort information, about their fishing trips. Participants in the herring, tilefish and red crab fisheries are also required to make weekly reports on their catch through IVR. In addition, permitted vessels that catch halibut are asked to voluntarily provide additional information on the estimated size of the fish and the time of day caught.

Scope of the Orders The scope of these orders includes all grades and granulation sizes of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate in their unblended forms, whether dry or in solution, and regardless of packaging type. The scope also includes blends of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate; as well as blends with other ingredients, such as sugar, where the unblended form(s) of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate constitute 40 percent or more, by weight, of the blend. The scope of these orders also includes all forms of crude calcium citrate, including dicalcium citrate monohydrate, and tricalcium citrate tetrahydrate, which are intermediate products in the production of citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate. The scope of these orders does not include calcium citrate that satisfies the standards set forth in the United States Pharmacopeia and has been mixed with a functional excipient, such as dextrose or starch, where the excipient constitutes at least 2 percent, by weight, of the product. The scope of these orders includes the hydrous and anhydrous forms of citric acid, the dihydrate and anhydrous forms of sodium citrate, otherwise known as citric acid sodium salt, and the monohydrate and monopotassium forms of potassium citrate. Sodium citrate also includes both trisodium citrate and monosodium citrate, which are also known as citric acid trisodium salt and citric acid monosodium salt, respectively. Citric acid and sodium citrate are classifiable under 2918.14.0000 and 2918.15.1000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), respectively. Potassium citrate and crude calcium citrate are classifiable under 2918.15.5000 and 3824.90.9290 of the HTSUS, respectively. Blends that include citric acid, sodium citrate, and potassium citrate are classifiable under 3824.90.9290 of the HTSUS.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, 
the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) has the responsibility for the 
conservation and management of marine fishery resources. Much of this 
responsibility has been delegated to the National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/National Marine Fisheries Service 
(NMFS). Under this stewardship role, the Secretary was given certain 
regulatory authorities to ensure the most beneficial uses of these 
resources. One of the regulatory steps taken to carry out the 
conservation and management objectives is to collect data from users of 
the resource. Thus, as regional Fishery Management Councils develop 
specific Fishery Management Plans (FMP), the Secretary has promulgated 
rules for the issuance and use of a vessel Interactive Voice Response 
(IVR) system, a Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) and vessel logbooks to 
obtain fishery-dependent data to monitor, evaluate, and enforce fishery 
regulations.
    Fishing vessels permitted to participate in federally-permitted 
fisheries in the Northeast are required to submit logbooks containing 
catch and effort information, about their fishing trips. Participants 
in the herring, tilefish and red crab fisheries are also required to 
make weekly reports on their catch through IVR. In addition, permitted 
vessels that catch halibut are asked to voluntarily provide additional 
information on the estimated size of the fish and the time of day 
caught. The information submitted is needed for the management of the 
fisheries.
    NE multispecies permit holders participating in the special access 
programs (SAP), the Category B (regular) Days-at-Sea (DAS) program, and 
fishing in the United States/Canada Resource Sharing Understanding Area 
are required to use VMS to electronically

[[Page 25703]]

submit reports of catch and discards for all trips. The submitted 
information is necessary to monitor groundfish stocks of concern and 
prevent overfishing.

II. Method of Collection

    Most information is submitted on paper forms, although electronic 
means may be arranged. In the herring, tilefish and red crab fisheries 
vessel owners or operators must provide weekly catch information to an 
IVR system. In the NE Multispecies fishery, vessel owners or operators 
must declare catch and discards of groundfish species of concern 
through VMS for all trips.
