Abstract The Cooperative Game Fish Tagging Program was initiated in 1971 as part of a comprehensive research program resulting from passage of Public Law 86–359, Study of Migratory Game Fish, and other legislative acts under which the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) operates. The Cooperative Tagging Center attempts to determine the migration patterns of, and other biological information for, billfish, tunas, and swordfish. The fish tagging report is provided to the angler with the tags, and he/she fills out the card with the information when a fish is tagged and mails it to NMFS. Information on each species is used by NMFS to determine migratory patterns, distance traveled, stock boundaries, age, and growth. These data are necessary input for developing management criteria by regional fishery management councils, states, and NMFS. BILLING CODE 3510–22–P II.

ACTION: Notice of peer review meeting. AGENCY: NMFS has requested the Center for Independent Experts (CIE) to conduct a peer review of the agency’s economic data collection program for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands crab fisheries managed under the BSAI Crab Rationalization program. The CIE, operated by Northern Taiga Ventures, Inc., provides independent peer reviews of NMFS’s fisheries stock assessments and other science products. The BSAI Crab Economic Data Report (EDR) program administered by NMFS began collecting cost, earnings and employment data in 2005, concurrently with the transition of BSAI crab fisheries to the rationalized management regime. The program was developed under the direction of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council). The CIE review will examine the scientific methods and practices employed by NMFS in the design and administration of the EDR program and dissemination of results, assess whether the data and information produced represent the best available science, and provide recommendations for methodological improvements to achieve best scientific practices in economic data collection and analysis of BSAI crab fisheries. The public is invited to attend and observe the presentations and discussions between the CIE panel and the NMFS scientists and contractors who have administered the data collection. DATES: The public portion of the meeting will be held August 23–24, 2011, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pacific standard time. ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held in the Observer Training Room, Building 4 of the National Marine Fisheries Service, Alaska Fisheries Science Center, 7600 Sand Point Way, NE., Seattle, WA 98115.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a regular submission (new collection). The 
California Signage Plan is an organized and systematic way to develop 
and install graphic signs along the California coastline and inland 
that interpret the natural and cultural resources of a particular 
location and its connection to the sanctuaries located within 
California. To date, a strategic approach to evaluating interpretive 
signs produced by the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries has not 
been developed; therefore, NOAA does not know if the messages trying to 
be conveyed to their audiences are effective. NOAA is proposing to 
conduct an online and onsite survey of approximately 400 visitors to 
the locations where signs are currently

interest in alternate sources of interpretive content, perception of 
the National Marine Sanctuaries identity, and awareness of the national 
marine sanctuary system.

    Half of the respondents will use paper forms completed onsite. Half 
of the respondents will be asked to complete the survey online.
