SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for revision of a current information collection. 
The title will be changed from ``Marine Recreational Information 
Program'' to ``Marine Recreational Information Program Fishing Effort 
Survey''.
    Marine recreational anglers are surveyed to collect catch and 
effort data, fish biology data, and angler socioeconomic 
characteristics. These data are required to carry out provisions of the 
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 
1801 et seq.), as amended, regarding conservation and management of 
fishery resources.
    Marine recreational fishing effort data have traditionally been 
collected through the Coastal Household Telephone Survey, a random-
digit-dial telephone survey of coastal county residences. Amendments to 
the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) 
require the development of an improved data collection program for 
recreational fisheries. To meet these requirements, the National 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Fisheries has designed 
and tested new approaches for sampling and surveying recreational 
anglers. Revision: A mail survey that samples from residential address 
frames and collects information on the number of marine recreational 
anglers and the number of recreational fishing trips is currently being 
tested in MA, NY, NC and FL. The survey will be expanded to all 
Atlantic and Gulf coast states (except TX), HI and Puerto Rico.

II. Method of Collection

    Information will be collected through mail surveys.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-0652.
    Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Regular submission (revision of a current 
information collection).
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 153,000.
    Estimated Time per Response: 10 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 25,500 (16,600 new).
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0.

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 whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden 
(including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information;
    (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on respondents, including through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information 
collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
