SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The success of fisheries management programs depends significantly 
on regulatory compliance. The vessel identification requirement is 
essential to facilitate enforcement. The ability to link fishing or 
other activity to the vessel owner or operator is crucial to 
enforcement of regulations issued under the authority of the Magnuson-
Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. A vessel's official 
number is required to be displayed on the port and starboard sides of 
the deckhouse or hull, and on a weather deck. It identifies each vessel 
and should be visible at distances at sea and in the air. Vessels that 
qualify for particular fisheries are readily identified, gear 
violations are more readily prosecuted, and this allows for more cost-
effective enforcement. Cooperating fishermen also use the number to 
report suspicious activities that they observe. Regulation-compliant 
fishermen ultimately benefit as unauthorized and illegal fishing is 
deterred and more burdensome regulations are avoided.

II. Method of Collection

    Fishing vessel owners physically mark vessel with identification 
numbers in three locations per vessel.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-0355.
    Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Regular submission (extension of a currently 
approved information collection).

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
