ACTION: Notice of public meeting. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: On November 13, 2012, we published a notice inviting qualified commercial shark permit holders to submit applications to participate in the 2013 shark research fishery. The shark research fishery allows for the collection of fishery-dependent data for future stock assessments and cooperative research with commercial fishermen to meet the shark research objectives of the Agency. Every year, the permit terms and permitted activities (e.g., number of hooks and trips, retention limits) 6 See 19 CFR 351.310. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:01 Mar 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 specifically authorized for selected participants in the shark research fishery are designated depending on the scientific and research needs of the Agency, as well as the number of NMFS-approved observers available. In order to inform selected participants of this year’s specific permit requirements and ensure all terms and conditions of the permit are met, we are holding a mandatory permit holder meeting for selected participants. In this notice, we announce the date and time of that meeting. DATES: A conference call will be held on March 18, 2013. ADDRESSES: A conference call will be conducted. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for information on how to access the conference call. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karyl Brewster-Geisz or Delisse Ortiz at (301) 427–8503. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Atlantic shark fisheries are managed under the authority of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). The 2006 Consolidated Highly Migratory species (HMS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP) is implemented by regulations at 50 CFR part 635. The final rule for Amendment 2 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP (73 FR 35778, June 24, 2008, corrected at 73 FR 40658, July 15, 2008) established, among other things, a shark research fishery to maintain time series data for stock assessments and to meet NMFS’ research objectives. The shark research fishery gathers important scientific data and allows selected commercial fishermen the opportunity to earn more revenue from selling the sharks caught, including sandbar sharks. Only the commercial shark fishermen selected to participate in the shark research fishery are authorized to land/harvest sandbar sharks subject to the sandbar quota available each year. The sandbar shark base quota is 116.6 mt dw per year through December 31, 2013, although this number may be reduced in the event of overharvests, if any. The selected shark research fishery participants also have access to the nonsandbar large coastal sharks LCS, small coastal sharks SCS, and pelagic shark quotas subject to retention limits and quotas per §§ 635.24 and 635.27, respectively. On November 13, 2012 (77 FR 67631), we published a notice inviting qualified commercial shark permit holders to submit an application to participate in the 2013 shark research fishery. We received 13 applications, of which 12 PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14515 applicants were determined to meet all the qualifications. From the 12 qualified applicants, we randomly selected 6 participants after considering how to meet research objectives in particular regions. During the annual application period, commercial shark permit holders (directed and incidental) are invited to submit an application to participate in the shark research fishery. NMFS expects to invite qualified commercial shark permit holders to submit an application for the 2014 shark research fishery later this year. Every year, the permit terms and permitted activities (e.g., number of hooks and trips, retention limits) specifically authorized for selected participants in the shark research fishery are designated depending on the scientific and research needs of the Agency as well as the number of NMFSapproved observers available. In order to inform selected participants of this year’s specific permit requirements and ensure all terms and conditions of the permit are met, per the requirements of § 635.32 (f)(4), we are holding a mandatory permit holder meeting via conference call. The conference call will be held on March 18, 2013, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. (EST). Participants and interested parties should call 888–989–4986 and use the passcode 4136438. Selected participants who do not attend will not be allowed to participate in the shark research fishery. While the conference call is mandatory for selected participants, other interested parties may call in and listen to the discussion. Selected participants are encouraged to invite their captain, crew, or anyone else who may assist them in meeting the terms and conditions of the shark research research fishery permit.
