Background Sections 312(b)–(e) of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1861a(b)through (e)) generally authorizes fishing capacity reduction programs. In particular, section 312(d) authorizes industry fee systems for PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 repaying reduction loans which finance reduction program costs. Subpart L of 50 CFR part 600 is the framework rule generally implementing section 312(b)–(e). Sections 1111 and 1112 of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1279f and 1279g) generally authorizes reduction loans. Enacted on December 8, 2004, section 219, Title II, of FY 2005 Appropriations Act, Public Law 104–447 (Act) authorizes a fishing capacity reduction program implementing capacity reduction plans submitted to NMFS by catcher processor subsectors of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (‘‘BSAI’’) non-pollock groundfish fishery (‘‘reduction fishery’’)as set forth in the Act. The longline catcher processor subsector (the ‘‘Longline Subsector’’) is among the catcher processor subsectors eligible to submit to NMFS a capacity reduction plan under the terms of the Act. The longline subsector non-pollock groundfish reduction program’s objective was to reduce the number of vessels and permits endorsed for longline subsector of the non-pollock groundfish fishery. All post-reduction fish landings from the reduction fishery are subject to the longline subsector non-pollock groundfish program’s fee. NMFS proposed the implementing notice on August 11, 2006 (71 FR 46364)and published the final notice on September 29, 2006 (71 FR 57696). NMFS allocated the $35,000,000 reduction loan to the reduction fishery and is repayable by fees from the fishery.

Purpose The purpose of this notice is to adjust, in accordance with the framework rule’s § 600.1013(b), the fee rate for the reduction fishery. Section 600.1013(b) directs NMFS to recalculate the fee rate that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment within the specified 30 year term. NMFS has determined for the reduction fishery that the current fee rate of $0.02 per pound is more than needed to service the loan.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Sections 312(b)-(e) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation 
and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1861a(b)through (e)) generally authorizes 
fishing capacity reduction programs. In particular, section 312(d) 
authorizes industry fee systems for repaying reduction loans which 
finance reduction program costs.
    Subpart L of 50 CFR part 600 is the framework rule generally 
implementing section 312(b)-(e).
    Sections 1111 and 1112 of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. 
U.S.C. 1279f and 1279g) generally authorizes reduction loans.
    Enacted on December 8, 2004, section 219, Title II, of FY 2005 
Appropriations Act, Public Law 104-447 (Act) authorizes a fishing 
capacity reduction program implementing capacity reduction plans 
submitted to NMFS by catcher processor subsectors of the Bering Sea and 
Aleutian Islands (``BSAI'') non-pollock groundfish fishery (``reduction 
fishery'')as set forth in the Act.
    The longline catcher processor subsector (the ``Longline 
Subsector'') is among the catcher processor subsectors eligible to 
submit to NMFS a capacity reduction plan under the terms of the Act.
    The longline subsector non-pollock groundfish reduction program's 
objective was to reduce the number of vessels and permits endorsed for 
longline subsector of the non-pollock groundfish fishery.
    All post-reduction fish landings from the reduction fishery are 
subject to the longline subsector non-pollock groundfish program's fee.
    NMFS proposed the implementing notice on August 11, 2006 (71 FR 
46364)and published the final notice on September 29, 2006 (71 FR 
57696).
    NMFS allocated the $35,000,000 reduction loan to the reduction 
fishery and is repayable by fees from the fishery.
    NMFS published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2007 (72 FR 
54219), the final rule to implement the industry fee system for 
repaying the non-pollock groundfish program's reduction loan and 
established October 24, 2007 as the effective date when fee collection 
and loan repayment began. The regulations implementing the program are 
located at Sec.  600.1012 of 50 CFR part 600's subpart M.

II. Purpose

    The purpose of this notice is to adjust, in accordance with the 
framework rule's Sec.  600.1013(b), the fee rate for the reduction 
fishery. Section 600.1013(b) directs NMFS to recalculate the fee rate 
that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment 
within the specified 30 year term.
    NMFS has determined for the reduction fishery that the current fee 
rate of $0.02 per pound is more than needed to service the loan. 
Therefore,

NMFS is decreasing the fee rate to $0.016 per pound which NMFS has 
determined is sufficient to ensure timely loan repayment.
    To provide more accessible services, streamline collections, and 
save taxpayer dollars, subsector members may disburse collected fee 
deposits to NMFS by using a secure Federal system on the Internet known 
as Pay.gov. Pay.gov enables subsector members to use their checking 
accounts to electronically disburse their collected fee deposits to 
NMFS. Subsector members who have access to the Internet should consider 
using this quick and easy collected fee disbursement method. Subsector 
members may access Pay.gov by going directly to Pay.gov's Federal

disbursements the fee collection report applicable to each 
disbursement. The fee collection report tells NMFS how much of the 
disbursement it must apply to the reduction fishery loan. Subsector
