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.
