Abstract This request is for an extension without change of a currently approved information collection. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) manages the crab fisheries in the waters off the coast of Alaska under the Fishery Management Plan (FMP) for the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) Crab. The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. (Magnuson-Stevens Act) mandated the Secretary of Commerce to implement the Crab Rationalization Program (CR Program) for the BSAI Management Area (BSAI) crab fisheries. The CR Program allocates BSAI crab resources among harvesters, processors, and coastal communities and monitors the ‘‘economic stability for harvesters, processors, and coastal communities.’’ The Magnuson-Stevens Act provides specific guidance on the CR Program’s mandatory economic data collection report (EDR) used to assess the efficacy of the CR Program. Data from the EDR will directly contribute to ongoing evaluation of potential antitrust and anti-competitive practices in the crab industry. II.

The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 operators/users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on September 23, 2010. FTZ 203 was approved by the Board on October 18, 1994 (Board Order 702, 59 FR 54433, 10/31/94). The current zone project includes the following site: Site 1 (316 acres)—Port of Moses Lake Industrial Park, located within the Grant County International Airport complex, Moses Lake, Washington. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would include all of Benton, Chelan, Columbia, Douglas, Franklin, Grant, Kittitas, Lincoln and Walla Walla Counties, as well as portions of Okanogan and Yakima Counties, Washington, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Moses Lake Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project to include the existing site as a ‘‘magnet’’ site. The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that Site 1 be so exempted. The applicant is also requesting approval of the following initial ‘‘usage-driven’’ sites in Grant County: Proposed Site 2 (38 acres)—Zip Truck Line, Inc., 13957 Road 1.9 NE, Moses Lake; and, Proposed Site 3 (60 acres)—SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers, LLC, 8781 Randolph Road NE, Moses Lake. Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a generalpurpose zone, the application would have no impact on FTZ 203’s authorized subzone. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Christopher Kemp of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is November 29, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the E:\FR\FM\28SEN1.SGM 28SEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The purpose of this data collection program is to improve 
commercial fisheries socioeconomic data for North Pacific fisheries, 
using the community as the unit of reporting and analysis. Communities 
are often the focus of policy mandates (e.g. National Standard 8 of the 
Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Management Act (MSA), social impact 
assessments under the National Environmental Policy Act and MSA, North 
Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) programmatic management 
goals, etc.) and are frequently a recognized stakeholder in NPFMC 
deliberations and programs. However, much of the existing commercial 
socioeconomic data is collected and organized around different units of 
analysis, such as counties (boroughs), fishing firms, vessels, sectors, 
and gear groups. It is often difficult to aggregate or disaggregate 
these data for analysis at the individual community or regional level. 
In addition, at present, some relevant community level socioeconomic 
data are simply not collected at all. The NPFMC, the Alaska Fisheries 
Science Center (AFSC), and community stakeholder organizations, have 
identified ongoing collection of community level economic and 
socioeconomic information, specifically related to commercial 
fisheries, as a priority.
    The proposed data collection will include information on community 
revenues based in the fisheries economy, population fluctuations, 
vessel expenditures in ports, fisheries infrastructure available in the 
community, support sector business operations in the community, 
community participation in fisheries management, effects of fisheries 
management decisions on the community, and demographic information on 
commercial fisheries participants from the community. The information 
collected in this program will capture the most relevant and pressing 
types of data needed for socioeconomic analyses of communities.

II. Method of Collection

    The method of data collection will be a survey sent by mail (and by 
e-mail where possible).

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: None.
    Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Regular submission.
    Affected Public: State, local, or tribal government.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 524.
    Estimated Time Per Response: 1 hour.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 524.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0 in recordkeeping/
reporting costs.

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 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden 
(including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; 
(c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on respondents, including through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information 
collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
