I. Abstract

    Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, 
the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) has the responsibility for the 
conservation and management of marine fishery resources. Much of this 
responsibility has been delegated to the NOAA's National Marine 
Fisheries Service (NMFS). Under this stewardship role, the Secretary 
was given certain regulatory authorities to ensure the most beneficial 
uses of these resources. One of the regulatory steps taken to carry out 
the conservation and management objectives is to collect data from

need in this fishery to (1) Eliminate the requirement to notify NMFS 
Office of Law Enforcement (OLE) via telephone prior to beginning a 
fishing trip, (2) facilitate the monitoring of areas closed to fishing 
due to environmental degradation (e.g., harmful algal blooms and former 
dump sites for military munitions), and (3) facilitate the monitoring 
of borders between state and Federal fishing jurisdictions.
