The information collected in this survey will be used to provide information on potential impacts of management decisions on the fishing industry. In general, analysis of cost and revenue information for the seafood processing plant and other activities of the plant allow analysts to estimate the economic contributions and impacts of marine fish processing to each coastal state and nationwide. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: Monthly, annually and one time. Respondent’s Obligation: Annual report and add-on survey, voluntary; monthly report, mandatory. This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB.
