This request is to collect information to accomplish those evaluations. Section 1458 of the CZMA and implementing regulations at 15 CFR part 923, Subpart L, require that state coastal management programs be evaluated concerning the extent to which the state has implemented and enforced the program approved by the Secretary, addressed the coastal management needs identified in 16 U.S.C. 1452(2)(A) through (K), and adhered to the terms of any grant, loan, or cooperative agreement funded under the CZMA. Section 1461(f) of the CZMA and implementing regulations at 15 CFR Part 921, Subpart E, require that national estuarine research reserves be evaluated with regard to their operation and management, including education and interpretive activities, the research being conducted within the reserve, and be evaluated in accordance with section 1458 of the CZMA and procedures set forth in 15 CFR part 923. NOAA’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) conducts periodic evaluations of the 34 coastal management programs and 28 research reserves and produces written findings for each evaluation. OCRM has access to documents submitted in cooperative agreement applications, performance reports, and certain documentation required by the CZMA and implementing regulations. However, additional information from each coastal management program and research reserve, as well as information from the program and reserve partners and stakeholders with whom each works, is necessary to evaluate against statutory and regulatory requirements. Different information collection subsets are necessary for (1) coastal management programs, (2) their partners and stakeholders, (3) research reserves, and (4) their partners and stakeholders. II.

NMFS is required to notify the public of the overall annual quota levels for tilefish if the previous year’s quota specifications remain unchanged. This document also provides notice of tilefish specifications recently adopted by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jason Berthiaume, Fishery Management Specialist, (978) 281–9177; fax (978) 281–9135. The tilefish regulations at § 648.292 specify that NMFS notify the public in the Federal Register of the overall annual quota levels for tilefish if the previous year’s quota specifications remain unchanged. The tilefish total allowable landings (TAL) for the 2013 fishing year will remain the same as the fishing year 2012 TAL of 1.995 million lb (904,917 kg). Five percent of the TAL (99,750 lb (45,246 kg)) is allocated to incidental catch, leaving 1,895,250 lb (859,671 kg) allocated to Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) holders. This document also announces tilefish specifications recently adopted by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council). At the April 2012 Council meeting, the Council adopted specifications for an acceptable biological catch (ABC), annual catch limit (ACL), and annual catch target (ACT). These specifications are consistent with the overall quota and rebuilding schedule that was established in Amendment 1 to the Golden Tilefish Fishery Management Plan. The adopted specifications also comply with the Council’s annual catch limits and accountability measures omnibus amendment (76 FR 60606; September 29, 2011).

I. Abstract

    This request is for a new information collection.
    The Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended (CZMA; 16 
U.S.C. 1451 et seq.) requires that state coastal management programs 
and national estuarine research reserves developed pursuant to the CZMA 
and approved by the Secretary of Commerce be evaluated periodically. 
This request is to collect information to accomplish those evaluations.
    Section 1458 of the CZMA and implementing regulations at 15 CFR 
part 923, Subpart L, require that state coastal management programs be 
evaluated concerning the extent to which the state has implemented and 
enforced the program approved by the Secretary, addressed the coastal 
management needs identified in 16 U.S.C. 1452(2)(A) through (K), and 
adhered to the terms of any grant, loan, or cooperative agreement 
funded under the CZMA. Section 1461(f) of the CZMA and implementing 
regulations at 15 CFR Part 921, Subpart E, require that national 
estuarine research reserves be evaluated with regard to their operation 
and management, including education and interpretive activities, the 
research being conducted within the reserve, and be evaluated in 
accordance with section 1458 of the CZMA and procedures set forth in 15 
CFR part 923.
    NOAA's Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) 
conducts periodic evaluations of the 34 coastal management programs and 
28 research reserves and produces written findings for each evaluation. 
OCRM has access to documents submitted in cooperative agreement 
applications, performance reports, and certain documentation required 
by the CZMA and implementing regulations. However, additional 
information from each coastal management program and research reserve, 
as well as information from the program and reserve partners and 
stakeholders with whom each works, is necessary to evaluate against 
statutory and regulatory requirements. Different information collection 
subsets are necessary for (1) coastal management programs, (2) their 
partners and stakeholders, (3) research reserves, and (4) their 
partners and stakeholders.

II. Method of Collection

    Coastal program and reserve manager respondents will receive 
information requests/questionnaires via email, and submittals will be 
made via email. Partners and stakeholders of coastal management 
programs and of reserves will receive a link to a web-based survey
