SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a current information collection.
    Regulations at 50 CFR Part 665, Subpart F, require that a vessel 
must be registered to a valid federal fishing permit if it is used to 
fish with longline gear for Pacific pelagic management unit species 
(PMUS), land or transship longline caught PMUS, or receive longline 
caught PMUS from a longline vessel, within the Exclusive Economic Zone 
(EEZ) of United States (U.S.) islands in the central and western 
Pacific, or to fish with troll and handline gear for PMUS within the 
EEZ around each of the Pacific Remote Island Areas (PRIA).
    Regulations at 50 CFR parts 665, Subparts D and E, require that the 
owner of a vessel used to fish for, land, or transship bottomfish 
management unit species (BMUS) using a large vessel (50 ft or longer) 
around Guam, or using a vessel within the EEZ around each of the PRIA, 
must register it to a valid federal fishing permit they hold.
    Regulations at 50 CFR Part 665, Subparts B, C, D and E, require 
that a vessel used to fish for precious corals within the EEZ of U.S. 
islands in the central and western Pacific, must be registered to a 
valid federal fishing permit for a specific precious coral permit area.
    This collection of information is needed for permit issuance, to 
identify actual or potential participants in the fishery, determine 
qualifications for permits, and to help measure the impacts of 
management controls on the participants in the fishery. The permit 
program is also an effective tool in the enforcement of fishery 
regulations and facilitates communication between the National Marine 
Fisheries Service (NMFS) and fishermen.
