SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for a new collection of information. The Puget Sound estuary provides one of the most valuable shellfish habitats in the Pacific Northwest. Shellfish are important economically, ecologically, and socially to the Puget Sound basin. While shellfish bed closures have decreased area-wide, persistent closures continue in certain locations, affecting local growers and restricting commercial and recreational harvest opportunities. The Puget Sound Partnership (Partnership), a Washington State agency established to facilitate the conservation and restoration of Puget Sound, has set a priority to reduce the risks of shellfish growing area closures and adverse effects on human health. The Partnership’s Action Agenda, the blueprint for action to restore and protect Puget Sound, has set a goal for a net increase of 10,800 harvestable shellfish acres by 2020. In support of the Partnership’s pursuit of this goal, the Northwest Fisheries Science Center is undertaking an economics research project to assess the PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 behavior of individual shellfish harvesters in response to the opening and closing of individual shellfish beaches for human health reasons, and how these actions affect the value of shellfish harvesting. The Puget Sound Recreational Shellfish Harvesting Project (PSRSHP) will provide critical economic data related to recreational shellfish harvesting. More specifically, the PSRSHP will collect data needed to assess (1) The socioeconomic characteristics of recreational shellfish harvesting participants; (2) The economic value of access to Puget Sound beaches for recreational shellfish harvesting through statistical estimation of models; and (3) the potential changes in these values stemming from possible changes in management policies related to human health that affect the status of particular shellfish harvesting areas. II. Method of Collection A sample of shellfish and fishing license holders will be screened with a brief telephone survey, followed by a mail survey where appropriate. Respondents to the telephone survey will submit data by telephone, and respondents to the mail survey will submit data on paper. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (new information collection). Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,463. Estimated Time per Response: 30 minutes for mail respondents who harvested shellfish in Puget Sound; 10 minutes for all other mail respondents; 3 minutes telephone screener.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for a new information collection. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to collect demographic, cultural, economic and social information about Gulf of Mexico fisheries managed under the GrouperTilefish Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) Program. The survey also intends to inquire about the industry’s perceptions, attitudes and beliefs about the performance of the Grouper-Tilefish IFQ Program. The data gathered will be used to describe the social and economic changes brought about by the Grouper-Tilefish IFQ Program, assess the economic performance of the industry under the Grouper-Tilefish IFQ Program, and evaluate the socioeconomic impacts of future federal regulatory actions. In addition, the information will be used to strengthen and improve fishery management decision-making, satisfy legal mandates under Executive Order 12866, the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act, and other pertinent statues.

economically, ecologically, and socially to the Puget Sound basin. 
While shellfish bed closures have decreased area-wide, persistent 
closures continue in certain locations, affecting local growers and 
restricting commercial and recreational harvest opportunities. The 
Puget Sound Partnership (Partnership), a Washington State agency

Sound, has set a priority to reduce the risks of shellfish growing area 
closures and adverse effects on human health. The Partnership's Action

    In support of the Partnership's pursuit of this goal, the Northwest 
Fisheries Science Center is undertaking an economics research project 
to assess the behavior of individual shellfish harvesters in response 
to the opening and closing of individual shellfish beaches for human

harvesting. The Puget Sound Recreational Shellfish Harvesting Project 
(PSRSHP) will provide critical economic data related to recreational 
shellfish harvesting. More specifically, the PSRSHP will collect data 
needed to assess (1) The socioeconomic characteristics of recreational 
shellfish harvesting participants; (2) The economic value of access to 
Puget Sound beaches for recreational shellfish harvesting through 
statistical estimation of models; and (3) the potential changes in 
these values stemming from possible changes in management policies 
related to human health that affect the status of particular shellfish 
harvesting areas.

II. Method of Collection
