Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Regional Economic Data Collection Program for Southeast Alaska. OMB Control Number: None. Form Number(s): NA. Type of Request: Regular submission (request for review of a new collection). Number of Respondents: 394. Average Hours per Response: Mail surveys and follow-up telephone interviews, 20 minutes; interviews with key informants, 40 minutes. Burden Hours: 148. Needs and Uses: This request is for review of a new information collection. The regional or community economic analysis of proposed fishery management policies is required by the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and Executive Order 12866, among others. To satisfy these mandates and inform policymakers and the public of the likely regional economic impacts associated with fishery management policies, appropriate economic models and the data to implement them are needed. Much of the data required for regional economic analysis associated with Southeast Alaska fisheries are either unavailable or unreliable. Accurate fishery-level data on employment, labor income, and expenditures in the Southeast Alaska fishery and related industries are not currently available but are needed to estimate the effects of fisheries on the economy of Southeast Alaska. In this planned survey effort, data on these important regional economic variables will be collected and used to develop models that will provide more reliable estimates and VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:51 Aug 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 significantly improve policymakers’ ability to assess policy effects on fishery-dependent communities in Southeast Alaska.

The survey (mailed) will request data on employment, labor payments, and other expenditures from owners of 1,700 vessels that delivered fish to Southeast Alaska processors in 2009.

ACTION: Notice of Comment Period for Revised Management Plans for the following National Estuarine Research Reserves: Narragansett Bay, RI and Tijuana River, CA. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that the Estuarine Reserves Division, Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce is announcing a thirty day comment period for the revised management plans of the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49887 Narragansett Bay, RI National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Tijuana, CA National Estuarine Research Reserve. The Narragansett Bay, RI Reserve plan calls for an expansion to their boundary and the Tijuana, CA Reserve plan calls for a reduction to their boundary. The revised management plan for the Narragansett Bay, RI National Estuarine Research Reserve outlines the administrative structure; the education, training, stewardship, and research goals of the reserve; and the plans for future land acquisition and facility development to support reserve operations. The objectives described in this plan are designed to address the most critical coastal issues in Narragansett Bay such as wastewater and stormwater management, coastal and watershed development, and invasive species management. Since the last approved management plan in 1998, the reserve has become fully staffed; added a coastal training program that delivers science-based information to key decision makers; and added significant monitoring of invasive species, water quality, fish and bird populations. In addition to programmatic and staffing advances, the reserve upgraded visiting research facilities, space available for education and storage, and has increased the availability of dock space for research and educational programming. This management plan calls for a boundary expansion of 156 acres. The lands consist of one 128 acre parcel on the northern end of Prudence Island that is adjacent to current reserve property and the addition of the 28 acre Dyer Island. Dyer Island Habitats include coastal brush, salt marsh, cobble beaches, and both hard and soft substrate submerged lands. The island is considered a critical bird rookery and hosts an unusual amount of macroalgal diversity and rare examples of unditched salt marsh habitat. The 128 acre Ballard Property on Prudence Island consists of forested land with early successional shrubland and grassland communities as well as an important freshwater creek and the associated wetlands. The Dyer Island property will provide opportunities for research and passive recreation while the easily accessed Prudence Island parcel will be appropriate for education, recreation, and upland research purposes. This plan can be accessed for review at http://www.nbnerr.org. The revised management plan for the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve outlines a framework of overarching goals and program specific objectives that will guide the education, training, stewardship, and E:\FR\FM\16AUN1.SGM 16AUN1
