SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under Section 204(e)(1)(A)of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), the Secretary of State, with the concurrence of the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) and in consultation with the Council, may negotiate and enter into a Pacific Insular Area fishery agreement (PIAFA) to allow foreign fishing within waters of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) adjacent to American Samoa, Guam, or the Northern Mariana Islands, and at the request and with the concurrence of, and in consultation with, the Governor of the Pacific Insular Area to which the PIAFA applies. Section 204(e)(4) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act requires that prior to entering into a PIAFA, the appropriate Governor and the Council shall develop a three-year MCP detailing the uses for any funds collected by the Secretary under the PIAFA. Any payments received under a PIAFA shall be deposited into the United States Treasury and then covered over to the Treasury of the ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Pacific Insular Area for which funds were collected. In the case of violations by foreign fishing vessels occurring within the EEZ off any Pacific Insular Area, any amount received by the Secretary which is attributable to fines and penalties imposed under the Magnuson-Stevens Act, including such sums collected from the forfeiture and disposition or sale of property seized subject to its authority, after payment of direct costs of the enforcement action to all entities involved in such action, shall be deposited into the Treasury of the Pacific Insular Area adjacent to the EEZ in which the violation occurred, to be used for fisheries enforcement and for implementation of an MCP. The MCP to be approved by the Secretary must be consistent with the Council’s fishery management plans, identify conservation and management objectives (including criteria for determining when such objectives have been met), and prioritize planned marine conservation projects. At its 144th meeting in March 2009, the Council reviewed and approved the MCP for American Samoa and recommended its submission to the Secretary for approval. NMFS, designee of the Secretary, received the MCP on June 22, 2009. The American Samoa MCP contains seven broad conservation and management objectives that are consistent with the Council’s fishery management plans. The MCP also identifies 37 individual projects that would be funded under a PIAFA. The objectives and projects are listed below, in priority order: • Objective 1: Promote responsible domestic fisheries development to provide long term economic growth and stability and local food production. 1. Construct dock for commercial fishing vessels; 2. Construct cold storage and fish processing facilities; 3. Purchase ice making equipment to support local and export markets; 4. Develop fish marketing plan; 5. Longline permit, reporting and quota utilization program; 6. Fish handling and HACCP training; 7. Develop American Samoa Fishermen’s Cooperative; 8. Deploy fish aggregation devices for non-LL vessels; 9. Upgrade technology for AS bottomfish fleet; and 10. Promote American Samoa as a sport fishing destination through tournaments. • Objective 2: Support quality research and obtain the most complete scientific information available to assess and manage fisheries.
