SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for an extension of a currently approved 
information collection.
    The Cooperative Game Fish Tagging Program (CGFTP) was initiated in 
1954 by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). In 1973 the CGFTP 
became a cooperative effort between WHOI and the NOAA National Marine 
Fisheries (NMFS) as part of a comprehensive research program resulting 
from passage of the Migratory Game Fish Study Act of 1959 (Pub. L. 86-
359) and other legislative acts under which the NMFS operates, 
including 16 U.S.C. Section 760e. In 1980 sole control of the CGFTP was 
handed over to the NMFS. The CGFTP was later renamed the Cooperative 
Tagging Center (CTC). The CTC attempts to determine the migratory 
patterns and other biological information of billfish, tunas, and 
swordfish by having fishermen tag and release their catch, so that fish 
can be subsequently recaptured.
    The primary objectives of a tagging program are to obtain 
scientific information on fish growth and movements necessary to assist 
in stock assessment and management. This is accomplished by the random 
recapture of tagged fish by fishermen and the subsequent voluntary 
submission of the appropriate data.

II. Method of Collection

    The recapture cards will be sent out to the constituents who will 
fill in the cards with the pertinent information when and if they 
recapture a tagged fish and mail the cards back to NMFS offices.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-0259.
    Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Regular submission (extension of a currently 
approved collection).
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 240.
    Estimated Time per Response: 2 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 8.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0.

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information shall have practical
