Notice of Filing of Plats of Survey; Alaska, 2560 [2010-216]

Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 2560 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 10 / Friday, January 15, 2010 / Notices We gather information on the annual subsistence harvest of 60 bird species/ species categories (ducks, geese, swans, cranes, upland game birds, seabirds, shorebirds, and grebes and loons) in the subsistence eligible areas of Alaska. The survey covers 10 regions of Alaska, which are further divided in 29 subregions. We survey the regions and villages in a rotation schedule to accommodate budget constraints and to minimize respondent burden. The survey covers spring, summer, and fall harvest in most regions. In collaboration with Alaska Native organizations, we hire local resident surveyors to collect the harvest information. The surveyors list all households in the villages to be surveyed and provide survey information and harvest report forms to randomly selected households that have agreed to participate in the survey. To ensure anonymity of harvest information, we identify households by a numeric code. The surveyor visits households three times during the survey year. At the first household visit, the surveyor explains the survey purposes and invites household participation. The surveyor returns at the end of the season of most harvest and at the end of the two other seasons combined to help the household complete the harvest report form. We have revised the survey methods to streamline procedures and reduce respondent burden. We plan to use two forms for household participation: • FWS Form 3-2380 (Tracking Sheet and Household Consent). The surveyor visits each household selected to participate in the survey to provide information on the objectives and to obtain household consent to participate. The surveyor uses this form to record consent and track subsequent visits for completion of harvest reports • FWS Forms 3-2381-1, 3-2381-2, 32381-3, and 3-2381-4 (Harvest Report). The Harvest Report has drawings of bird species most commonly available for harvest in the different regions of Alaska with fields for writing down the numbers of birds and eggs taken. There are four versions of this form: Interior Alaska, North Slope, Southern Coastal Alaska, and Western Alaska. This form has a page for each season surveyed, and, on each page, there are fields for the household code, community name, harvest year, date of completion, and comments. Comments: On July 6, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 31970) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew this ICR. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on September 4, 2009. We VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:34 Jan 14, 2010 Jkt 220001 did not receive any comments in response to that notice. We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it will be done. Dated: January 7, 2010.
