SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26743 I. Abstract This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection. Under the provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is responsible for management of the nation’s marine fisheries. Existing regulations require operators of tournaments involving Atlantic highly migratory species (HMS), specifically Atlantic swordfish, sharks, billfish, and tunas, to register four weeks in advance of the tournament. Operators must provide contact information and the tournament’s date(s), location(s), and target HMS. If selected by NMFS, operators are required to submit an HMS tournament summary report within seven days after tournament fishing has ended. Most of the catch data in the summary report is routinely collected in the course of regular tournament operations. NMFS uses the data to estimate the total annual catch of HMS and the impact of tournament operations in relation to other types of fishing activities. In addition, HMS tournament registration provides a method for tournament operators to request educational and regulatory outreach materials from NMFS. II. Method of Collection Operators have a choice of either electronic or paper forms. Methods of submittal include email of electronic forms, and mail and facsimile transmission of paper forms. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0323. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (extension of a current information collection). Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; business or other for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 300. Estimated Time Per Response: Tournament registration, 2 minutes; tournament summary reporting, 20 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 110. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $135 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 E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1
