Historically, changes in fisheries management regulations have been shown to result in impacts to individuals within the fishery.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of 
information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35).
    Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    Title: Gulf of Alaska Trawl Groundfish Fishery Rationalization 
Social Study--Catcher Processor Socio-Cultural Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 0648-xxxx.
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Request: Regular (request for a new information 
collection).
    Number of Respondents: 495.

survey, 1 hour; Catcher-Processor Shipboard Management and Catcher-
Processor Deck and Processing Crew surveys, 30 minutes each.
    Burden Hours: 255.
    Needs and Uses: This request is for a new information collection.
    Historically, changes in fisheries management regulations have been 
shown to result in impacts to individuals within the fishery. An 
understanding of social impacts in fisheries--achieved through the 
collection of data on fishing communities, as well as on individuals 
who fish--is a requirement under several federal laws, including the

Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) (as amended 2007). The 
collection of this data not only helps to inform legal requirements for 
the existing management actions, but will inform future management 
actions requiring equivalent information.
    Fisheries rationalization programs have an impact on those 
individuals participating in the affected fishery, as well as their 
communities and may also have indirect effects on other fishery 
participants. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council is 
considering the implementation of a new, yet to be defined,

fishery. A data collection was conducted in 2014 (OMB Control No. 0648-
