SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Under the High Seas Driftnet Fishing Moratorium Protection Act (Moratorium Protection Act), as amended by the Magnuson-Stevens Reauthorization Act (Pub. L. 109–479) and the Shark Conservation Act (Pub. L. 111–348), the Secretary of Commerce is authorized to identify nations whose vessels are engaged in, or have been engaged in: Illegal, unreported and unregulated VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:16 Jun 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 35957 (IUU) fishing; fishing activities that have bycatch of protected living marine resources (PLMR); and fishing for sharks on the high seas without adopting a regulatory program for the conservation of sharks comparable to that of the United States. Nations identified for IUU fishing, PLMR bycatch, or unsustainable shark fishing that do not take corrective action and do not subsequently receive a positive certification from the Secretary of Commerce may be subject to measures imposed by the Secretary of the Treasury under the High Seas Driftnet Fisheries Enforcement Act (16 U.S.C. 1826a). Such measures include the denial of port privileges for fishing vessels of those nations, and, as directed by the President, may include a prohibition on the importation into the United States of certain fish and fish products caught by the vessels engaged in the relevant activity for which the nations were identified, or other measures. NMFS published a final rule to specify the procedures for identification and certification of nations under the Highs Seas Driftnet Moratorium Protection Act on January 12, 2011 (76 FR 2011). That final rule contained collection-of-information requirements specified in §§ 300.205(b)(2), 300.206(c), and 300.207(c). These regulations required documentation of admissibility for fishery products exported to the United States from nations that were not positively certified subsequent to identification by the United States for having vessels engaged in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and/or bycatch of protected living marine resources. These collection-of-information requirements were not made effective in that final rule, pending approval of these requirements by OMB. In a subsequent rulemaking, published on January 16, 2013 (78 FR 3338), § 300.205 was redesignated as § 300.206; § 300.206 was redesignated as § 300.207, § 300.207 was redesignated as § 300.208 and § 300.209 was added. The redesignated sections contained the original documentation requirements for exports of fishery products to the United States and the new section contained documentation requirements for exports of fishery products to the United States from nations that were not positively certified subsequent to identification by the United States for having vessels engaged in fishing for sharks on the high seas in a manner not comparable in effectiveness to the regulatory program of the United States. These revised collection-of-information requirements contained in §§ 300.206(b)(2), E:\FR\FM\25JNR1.SGM 25JNR1 35958 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 122 / Wednesday, June 25, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 300.207(c), 300.208(c), and 300.209(c) were approved by OMB on January 16, 2013 (78 FR 3345, 3346). This final rule notifies the public that the collection-of-information requirements contained in §§ 300.206, 300.207, 300.208, and 300.209 have been approved by OMB and are effective. In addition, this final rule will update the table on NOAA information collections approved by OMB that appears under 15 CFR part 902. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES Classification This final rule contains a collectionof-information requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The collection of this information has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget under OMB Control Number 0648–0651. The information collection consists of documentation requirements for exports of fishery products to the United States from nations that were not positively certified subsequent to identification by the United States under the procedures of the High Seas Driftnet Moratorium Protection Act (50 CFR part 300, subpart N). Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is required to respond to, and no person shall be subject to penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries finds that there is good cause to waive prior notice and an opportunity for public comment on this action, as notice and comment would be unnecessary. Notice and comment are unnecessary for this current action because an opportunity for public comment was previously provided during the rulemaking to establish the collectionof-information requirement (78 FR 3338) and this current action makes only minor, non-substantive changes to the table on NOAA information collections approved by OMB that appears under 15 CFR part 902. No aspect of this required action is controversial. NMFS therefore determines that APA requirements for public notice and comment are unnecessary for this action and determines that this rule is not subject to the 30-day delay in effectiveness requirement at 5 U.S.C. 553(d).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the BSAI exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) under authority of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. In the BSAI, the halibut PSC limit apportioned as a bycatch allowance for the BSAI trawl limited access sector’s Pacific cod fishery is 453 metric tons (mt) as established by the final 2014 and 2015 harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (79 FR 12108, March 4, 2014). As of June 12, 2014, the Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS, (Regional Administrator), has determined that 60 mt of the 2014 halibut bycatch allowance for the BSAI trawl limited access sector’s Pacific cod fishery will not be used. Therefore, after consultation with the Council, and in accordance with § 679.21(e)(3)(i)(B), NMFS reapportions 60 mt of halibut bycatch allowance from the BSAI trawl limited access sector’s Pacific cod fishery, to the BSAI trawl limited access sector’s yellowfin sole fishery. The revised 2014 halibut bycatch allowances are 393 mt for the BSAI trawl limited access sector’s Pacific cod fishery and 227 mt for the BSAI trawl limited access sector’s yellowfin sole fishery. Table 12 of the final 2014 and 2015 harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (79 FR 12108, March 4, 2014) is revised consistent with this reapportionment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under the High Seas Driftnet Fishing Moratorium Protection Act 
(Moratorium Protection Act), as amended by the Magnuson-Stevens 
Reauthorization Act (Pub. L. 109-479) and the Shark Conservation Act 
(Pub. L. 111-348), the Secretary of Commerce is authorized to identify 
nations whose vessels are engaged in, or have been engaged in: Illegal, 
unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing; fishing activities that have 
bycatch of protected living marine resources (PLMR); and fishing for 
sharks on the high seas without adopting a regulatory program for the 
conservation of sharks comparable to that of the United States. Nations 
identified for IUU fishing, PLMR bycatch, or unsustainable shark 
fishing that do not take corrective action and do not subsequently 
receive a positive certification from the Secretary of Commerce may be 
subject to measures imposed by the Secretary of the Treasury under the 
High Seas Driftnet Fisheries Enforcement Act (16 U.S.C. 1826a). Such 
measures include the denial of port privileges for fishing vessels of 
those nations, and, as directed by the President, may include a 
prohibition on the importation into the United States of certain fish 
and fish products caught by the vessels engaged in the relevant 
activity for which the nations were identified, or other measures.
    NMFS published a final rule to specify the procedures for 
identification and certification of nations under the Highs Seas 
Driftnet Moratorium Protection Act on January 12, 2011 (76 FR 2011). 
That final rule contained collection-of-information requirements 
specified in Sec. Sec.  300.205(b)(2), 300.206(c), and 300.207(c). 
These regulations required documentation of admissibility for fishery 
products exported to the United States from nations that were not 
positively certified subsequent to identification by the United States 
for having vessels engaged in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) 
fishing and/or bycatch of protected living marine resources. These 
collection-of-information requirements were not made effective in that 
final rule, pending approval of these requirements by OMB.
    In a subsequent rulemaking, published on January 16, 2013 (78 FR 
3338), Sec.  300.205 was redesignated as Sec.  300.206; Sec.  300.206 
was redesignated as Sec.  300.207, Sec.  300.207 was redesignated as 
Sec.  300.208 and Sec.  300.209 was added. The redesignated sections 
contained the original documentation requirements for exports of 
fishery products to the United States and the new section contained 
documentation requirements for exports of fishery products to the 
United States from nations that were not positively certified 
subsequent to identification by the United States for having vessels 
engaged in fishing for sharks on the high seas in a manner not 
comparable in effectiveness to the regulatory program of the United 
States. These revised collection-of-information requirements contained 
in Sec. Sec.  300.206(b)(2),

[[Page 35958]]

300.207(c), 300.208(c), and 300.209(c) were approved by OMB on January 
16, 2013 (78 FR 3345, 3346).
    This final rule notifies the public that the collection-of-
information requirements contained in Sec. Sec.  300.206, 300.207, 
300.208, and 300.209 have been approved by OMB and are effective. In 
addition, this final rule will update the table on NOAA information 
collections approved by OMB that appears under 15 CFR part 902.

Classification

    This final rule contains a collection-of-information requirement 
subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The collection of this 
information has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget 
under OMB Control Number 0648-0651. The information collection consists 
of documentation requirements for exports of fishery products to the 
United States from nations that were not positively certified 
subsequent to identification by the United States under the procedures 
of the High Seas Driftnet Moratorium Protection Act (50 CFR part 300, 
subpart N).
    Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is 
required to respond to, and no person shall be subject to penalty for 
failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the 
requirements of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays 
a currently valid OMB control number.
    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Assistant Administrator for 
Fisheries finds that there is good cause to waive prior notice and an 
opportunity for public comment on this action, as notice and comment 
would be unnecessary. Notice and comment are unnecessary for this 
current action because an opportunity for public comment was previously 
provided during the rulemaking to establish the collection-of-
information requirement (78 FR 3338) and this current action makes only 
minor, non-substantive changes to the table on NOAA information 
collections approved by OMB that appears under 15 CFR part 902. No 
aspect of this required action is controversial. NMFS therefore 
determines that APA requirements for public notice and comment are 
unnecessary for this action and determines that this rule is not 
subject to the 30-day delay in effectiveness requirement at 5 U.S.C. 
553(d).
