SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a current information collection.
    This action would continue the reporting measure requiring all 
Virginia Chesapeake Bay pound net fishermen to report interactions with 
endangered and threatened sea turtles, found both live and dead, in 
their pound net operations. When a live or dead sea turtle is 
discovered during a pound net trip, the Virginia pound net fisherman is 
required to report the incidental take to National Marine Fisheries 
Service (NMFS) and, if necessary, the appropriate rehabilitation and 
stranding network. This information will be used to monitor the level 
of incidental take in the state-managed Virginia pound net fishery and 
ensure that the seasonal pound net leader restrictions (50 CFR 
223.206(d)(10)) are adequately protecting listed sea turtles. Based on 
the number of sea turtle takes anticipated in the Virginia pound net 
fishery and the available number of Virginia pound net fishermen and 
pound nets, the number of responses anticipated on an annual basis is 
483.
