SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 I. Abstract This request is for extension of a current information collection. On May 30, 2007, NMFS published a final rule (72 FR 29891) implementing a requirement under the CPS FMP to report any interactions that may occur between a CPS vessel and/or fishing gear and sea otters. Specifically, these reporting requirements are: 1. If a southern sea otter is entangled in a net, regardless of whether the animal is injured or killed, such an occurrence must be reported within 24 hours to the Regional Administrator, NMFS Southwest Region. 2. While fishing for CPS, vessel operators must record all observations of otter interactions (defined as otters within encircled nets or coming into contact with nets or vessels, including but not limited to entanglement) with their purse seine net(s) or vessel(s). With the exception of an entanglement, which will be initially reported as described in No. 1 above, all other observations must be reported within 20 days to the Regional Administrator. When contacting NMFS after an interaction, fishermen are required to provide information regarding the location, specifically latitude and longitude, of the interaction and a description of the interaction itself. Descriptive information of the interaction should include: Whether or not the otters were seen inside or outside the net; if inside the net, had the net been completely encircled; did contact occur with net or vessel; the number of otters present; duration of interaction; otter’s behavior during interaction; and, measures taken to avoid interaction. II. Method of Collection The information will be collected on forms submitted by mail, phone, facsimile or email. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0566. Form Number: None.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for an extension of this information collection. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Region manages the Northeast Multispecies fishery of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the Northeastern United States through the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (FMP). The New England Fishery Management Council prepared the FMP pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA). The regulations implementing the FMP are specified at 50 CFR part 648 Subpart F. The NE Multispecies Days-at-Sea (DAS) leasing requirements at § 648.82(k) form the basis for this collection of information. The NE multispecies DAS leasing program was implemented in 2004 as a result of Amendment 13 (69 FR 22906) which substantially reduced the number of DAS available for the NE multispecies vessels. To mitigate some of the adverse impact associated with the reduction in DAS, the NE Multispecies Leasing Program was developed to enable vessels to increase their revenue by either leasing additional DAS from another vessel to increase their participation on the fishery, or by leasing their unused allocated DAS to another vessel. NMFS requests Days-at-Sea (DAS) leasing application information in order to process and track requests from allocation holders to transfer DAS to another vessel. This information, upon receipt, results in an increasingly more efficient and accurate database for management and monitoring of fisheries of the Northeastern U.S. EEZ. The DAS leasing downgrade information is collected to allow vessel owners that are eligible to lease Northeast multispecies DAS a one-time downgrade in their baseline specifications to their current vessel specifications. This one-time downgrade provides greater flexibility for vessels to lease their DAS. II. Method of Collection Applicants can submit a DAS leasing request either through mail or electronically. Fillable applications may be completed online, but must be printed and signed to complete and the originals must be mailed. Applicants may choose to submit a lease electronically by logging into their personal fish-on-line accounts at https://www.nero.noaa.gov/NMFSlogin/ PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34653 login/login and clicking on the Days At Sea Leasing section.

Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 505. Estimated Time per Response: DAS Leasing Application, 5 minutes; Request to Downgrade, 1 hour.

I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a current information collection.
    On May 30, 2007, NMFS published a final rule (72 FR 29891) 
implementing a requirement under the CPS FMP to report any interactions 
that may occur between a CPS vessel and/or fishing gear and sea otters.
    Specifically, these reporting requirements are:
    1. If a southern sea otter is entangled in a net, regardless of 
whether the animal is injured or killed, such an occurrence must be 
reported within 24 hours to the Regional Administrator, NMFS Southwest 
Region.
    2. While fishing for CPS, vessel operators must record all 
observations of otter interactions (defined as otters within encircled 
nets or coming into contact with nets or vessels, including but not 
limited to entanglement) with their purse seine net(s) or vessel(s). 
With the exception of an entanglement, which will be initially reported 
as described in No. 1 above, all other observations must be reported 
within 20 days to the Regional Administrator.
    When contacting NMFS after an interaction, fishermen are required 
to provide information regarding the location, specifically latitude 
and longitude, of the interaction and a description of the interaction 
itself. Descriptive information of the interaction should include: 
Whether or not the otters were seen inside or outside the net; if 
inside the net, had the net been completely encircled; did contact 
occur with net or vessel; the number of otters present; duration of 
interaction; otter's behavior during interaction; and, measures taken 
to avoid interaction.
