ACTION: Notice; request for comments. SUMMARY: The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Northeast Region, NMFS (Assistant Regional Administrator) has made a preliminary determination that the subject programmatic Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) application for the Study Fleet Program contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration. Study Fleet projects are managed by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School of Marine Science and Technology (SMAST). The programmatic EFP would grant exemptions from minimum fish sizes, and possession and landing limits. However, further review and consultation may be necessary before a final determination is made to issue the EFP. Therefore, NMFS announces that the Assistant Regional Administrator proposes to issue a programmatic EFP that would allow seven vessels to conduct fishing operations that are otherwise restricted by the regulations governing the fisheries of the Northeastern United States. Regulations under the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed EFPs. DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 29, 2009. ADDRESSES: Comments on this notice may be submitted by e-mail. The mailbox address for providing e-mail comments is NERO.EFP@noaa.gov. Include in the subject line of the e-mail comment the following document identifier: ‘‘Comments on SMAST Study Fleet Programmatic EFP.’’ Written comments should be sent to Patricia A. Kurkul, Regional Administrator, NMFS, Northeast Regional Office, 55 Great Republic Drive, Gloucester, MA 01930. Mark the outside of the envelope ‘‘Comments on SMAST Study Fleet Programmatic EFP.’’ Comments may also be sent via facsimile (fax) to (978) 281–9135. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Allison Murphy, Fishery Management Specialist, phone: 978–281–9122. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A complete application for an EFP was submitted by SMAST on May 26, 2009. The EFP would exempt federally permitted commercial fishing vessels from the regulations detailed below while participating in the following projects managed by SMAST: (1) Georges Bank (GB) Multispecies Otter Trawl Net Study Fleet (seven vessels); (2) Skate and Monkfish Age Validation Research and American Lobster Shell Disease Research (seven vessels). The primary goal of the GB Multispecies Otter Trawl Net study fleet is to characterize catch on an effort level and collect size distributions of kept and discarded catch by: 1) Training fishermen to representatively sample their catch, measuring 100 kept and 100 discarded fish for each statistical area fished per trip for each species that is assessed using an analytical stock assessment; 2) developing data protocols to integrate biological sampling into study fleet databases, including application of electronic measuring onboard; 3) measuring 100 kept and 100 discarded skates for each statistical area fished per trip for each species; and 4) measuring Atlantic wolffish when available. The project is a continuation of research conducted since 2000 by SMAST, and which is now in its third phase of incorporating electronic reporting and EFPs for vessels collecting data. While fishing under Northeast (NE) multispecies day-at-sea (DAS), catch estimations would be derived by one of three methods: 1) Measuring actual weight using an electronic scale; 2) using basket weight, calculated by using a standard weight for a basket and counting the number of baskets filled; or 3) by using hail weight that is estimated by the crew. Length and weight measurements of 100 kept and 100 discarded fish, by statistical area, would be taken from a predetermined list of species (see Table 1). The landing of fish for sale at authorized dealers would be conducted according to each vessel’s fishing permits and within current regulations. Temporary exemptions from the NE multispecies possession limits at § 648.86, and NE multispecies minimum fish sizes at § 648.83(a)(3), are necessary to obtain the proposed data from undersized individuals, prohibited species, and/or fish in excess of trip limits. Similarly, temporary exemptions from monkfish possession limits at § 648.94(a) and (b), and monkfish minimum fish sizes at § 648.93, are necessary to obtain data from undersized individuals in excess of trip limits. Exemptions from skate possession restrictions at § 648.322(a)(1), and prohibitions on possession of skates at § 648.322(c)(1), are also necessary, as these species may be encountered when catch estimation is being completed. Vessels would be prohibited from landing undersized fish or amounts of fish greater than the allowable landing limits. TABLE 1.
