Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Electronic Dealer Reporting System prospective exclusive license will be Workshop royalty bearing and will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless, within fifteen days from the date of this published Notice, NIST receives written evidence and argument which establish that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. U.S. Patent No. 7,709,807 and U.S. Patent Application No. 13/369,008 are owned by the U.S. government, as represented by the Secretary of Commerce. U.S. Patent No. 7,709,807 describes a system and method for producing a source of ions, and particularly, a focused ion beam. The system and method use a magnetooptical trap (MOT) to produce a population of neutral atoms. A laser is then utilized to ionize atoms and produce a population of ions. An extraction element is then used to transfer the ions so that they can be used in a wide array of applications. U.S. Patent Application No. 13/369,008 describes a system for producing a charged particle beam from a photoionized cold atom beam. A vapor of neutral atoms is generated. From these atoms, an atom beam having axial and transverse velocity distributions controlled by the application of laser light is produced. The produced atom beam is spatially compressed along each transverse axis, thus reducing the crosssectional area of the produced beam and reducing a velocity spread of the produced beam along directions transverse to the beam’s direction of propagation. Laser light is directed onto at least a portion of the neutral atoms in the atom beam, thereby producing ions and electrons. An electric field is generated at the location of the produced ions and electrons, thereby producing a beam of ions traveling in a first direction and electrons traveling in substantially the opposite direction. A vacuum chamber contains the atom beam, the ion beam and the electron beam. Dated: June 25, 2012. Willie E. May, Associate Director for Laboratory Programs.

ACTION: Notice of public workshops. SUMMARY: On June 28, 2011, NMFS published a proposed rule that considered requiring, among other things, Federal Atlantic swordfish, shark, and tunas dealers (except for dealers reporting Atlantic bluefin tuna) to report commercially-harvested Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and bigeye, albacore, yellowfin, and skipjack (BAYS) tunas through one centralized electronic reporting system. This electronic reporting system will allow dealers to submit Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and BAYS tuna data on a more real-time basis and more efficiently, which will reduce duplicative data submissions from different regions. We proposed to delay the effective date of the electronic reporting requirements until 2013 in order to give sufficient time for dealers to adjust to implementation of the new system and the additional requirements. On December 14, 2011, we conducted an initial training workshop in the Caribbean area in order to introduce the new reporting system to HMS dealers. In this notice, we announce the date and location for additional training workshops in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic regions in order to continue introducing HMS dealers to the new electronic system. DATES: Training workshops for the new electronic dealer system will be held from July through September 2012. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for meeting dates, times, and locations. ADDRESSES: Workshops will be held in ¨ Mayaguez, Puerto Rico; St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands (U.S.V.I.); Belle Chase, Louisiana; Dulac, Louisiana; Panama City, Florida; Port Orange, Florida; Seminole, Florida; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Marathon, Florida Keys.

In order to give sufficient time for dealers to adjust to implementation of the new system and the additional requirements, we proposed delaying implementation of the new HMS electronic reporting system for all federally-permitted HMS dealers until 2013. Additionally, we decided to conduct outreach to HMS dealers to train them how to use the new system and help ease the transition from the current paper format to the new HMS electronic reporting system. We conducted an initial training workshop for HMS dealers in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. on December 14, 2011, and in this notice we are announcing additional training workshops in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic, and Caribbean regions.

SUMMARY: On June 28, 2011, NMFS published a proposed rule that 
considered requiring, among other things, Federal Atlantic swordfish, 
shark, and tunas dealers (except for dealers reporting Atlantic bluefin 
tuna) to report commercially-harvested Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and 
bigeye, albacore, yellowfin, and skipjack (BAYS) tunas through one 
centralized electronic reporting system. This electronic reporting 
system will allow dealers to submit Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and 
BAYS tuna data on a more real-time basis and more efficiently, which 
will reduce duplicative data submissions from different regions. We 
proposed to delay the effective date of the electronic reporting 
requirements until 2013 in order to give sufficient time for dealers to 
adjust to implementation of the new system and the additional 
requirements. On December 14, 2011, we conducted an initial training 
workshop in the Caribbean area in order to introduce the new reporting 
system to HMS dealers. In this notice, we announce the date and 
location for additional training workshops in the Caribbean, Gulf of 
Mexico and Atlantic regions in order to continue introducing HMS 
dealers to the new electronic system.

DATES: Training workshops for the new electronic dealer system will be 
held from July through September 2012. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION 
for meeting dates, times, and locations.

ADDRESSES: Workshops will be held in Mayag[uuml]ez, Puerto Rico; St. 
Croix, United States Virgin Islands (U.S.V.I.); Belle Chase, Louisiana;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Atlantic HMS are managed under the dual 
authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Act (MSA), 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., and the Atlantic Tunas Convention 
Act (ATCA), 16 U.S.C. 971 et seq. Under the MSA, NMFS must ensure 
consistency with the National Standards and manage fisheries to 
maintain optimum yield, rebuild overfished fisheries, and prevent 
overfishing. ATCA authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to promulgate 
regulations, as may be necessary and appropriate, to implement the 
recommendations adopted by the International Commission for the 
Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT). The authority to issue 
regulations under MSA and ATCA has been delegated from the Secretary to 
the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA. The implementing 
regulations for Atlantic HMS are at 50 CFR part 635.

Background

    The current regulations and infrastructure of the Atlantic HMS 
quota-monitoring systems result in a delay of several weeks or more 
before NMFS receives dealer data. This can affect management and 
monitoring of small Atlantic HMS quotas and short fishing seasons. As 
such, on June 28, 2011 (76 FR 37750), we published a proposed rule in 
the Federal Register that considered requiring, among other things, 
Federal Atlantic swordfish, shark, and tunas dealers (except for 
dealers reporting Atlantic bluefin tuna) to report commercially-
harvested Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and BAYS tunas through one 
centralized electronic reporting system. Under this new system, dealers 
would submit HMS data electronically (instead of in a paper format) and 
include additional information that is necessary for management of HMS 
(e.g., vessel and logbook information). The electronic submission of 
data will eliminate the delay associated with mailing in hardcopy 
reports. In this manner, HMS landings data will be submitted on a more 
real-time basis, allowing for timely and efficient data collection for 
management of Atlantic HMS.
    In order to give sufficient time for dealers to adjust to 
implementation of the new system and the additional requirements, we 
proposed delaying implementation of the new HMS electronic reporting 
system for all federally-permitted HMS dealers until 2013. 
Additionally, we decided to conduct outreach to HMS dealers to train 
them how to use the new system and help ease the transition from the 
current paper format to the new HMS electronic reporting system. We 
conducted an initial training workshop for HMS dealers in St. Thomas, 
U.S.V.I. on December 14, 2011, and in this notice we are announcing 
additional training workshops in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic, and 
Caribbean regions. However, we are not holding a training workshop in 
St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. at this time; we are working on scheduling an 
additional training session in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. in the future.
