Because of the difficulty of hiring U.S. merchant mariners (other than vessel masters) to serve in this fleet, the law authorizes foreign citizens to hold required navigation and engineering positions, if they are properly licensed by their countries, and subject to certain restrictions and limitations, and if qualified U.S. citizens are not readily available. Vessels that comply with these conditions may apply for and receive a Coast Guard Manning Exemption Letter attesting to compliance. The letter may expedite a vessel boarding or examination process.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    The revised policy letter is available at www.fishsafe.info. It 
updates guidance on the issuance of Distant Water Tuna Fleet Manning 
Exemption Letters. Similar guidance was issued in 2013, and is being 
brought up to date in light of recent statutory changes.
    The DWTF consists of U.S. commercial purse seine fishing vessels, 
under masters who are U.S. citizens, that operate in the tuna fisheries 
of the Western Pacific Ocean far from U.S. territories other than Guam 
and American Samoa. Because of the difficulty of hiring U.S. merchant 
mariners (other than vessel masters) to serve in this fleet, the law 
authorizes foreign citizens to hold required navigation and engineering 
positions, if they are properly licensed by their countries, and 
subject to certain restrictions and limitations, and if qualified U.S. 
citizens are not readily available. Vessels that comply with these 
conditions may apply for and receive a Coast Guard Manning Exemption 
Letter attesting to compliance. The letter may expedite a vessel 
boarding or examination process.
    This notice is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a).
