SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract Fishery quotas are established for many species in the fishery management plans developed by both the Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Fishery Management Council and the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council. The Southeast Fisheries Science Center has been delegated the responsibility to monitor these quotas. To do so in a timely manner, seafood dealers that handle these species are required to report the purchases (landings) of these species. The frequency of these reporting requirements varies depending on the magnitude of the quota (i.e., lower quota usually require more frequent reporting) and the intensity of fishing effort. The most common reporting frequency is twice a month; however, some fishery quotas, e.g., the mackerel gill net, necessitate weekly or by the trip. In addition, information collection included in this family of forms includes interview with fishermen to gather information on the fishing effort, location and type of gear used on individual trips. This data collection is conducted for a subsample of the fishing trips and vessel/trips in selected commercial fisheries in the Southeast region. Fishing trips and individuals are selected at random to provide a viable statistical sample. These data are used for scientific analyses that support critical conservation and management decisions made by national and international fishery management organizations.

Region requests, from participating wreckfish participants, information 
necessary to transfer ownership of percentage shares. The information 
collected includes the percentage of the shares transferred, dollar 
value of the transfer and the name, address, and employer 
identification number of the transfer recipient. This information, upon
