The study will use two survey instruments to collect information from tournament operators and participants. One survey will ask tournament operators to characterize and quantify their operating costs and income sources in addition to describing their tournament participants. The other survey instrument will ask fishing tournament participants to estimate their expenditures associated with travel to, entering, and participating in the tournament.

In addition, NMFS will select fifty percent of registered tournaments to distribute expenditure surveys to anglers registered for those tournament events. The Atlantic HMS Management Division is currently consulting with tournament organizers and participants to design the survey instruments to ensure NMFS captures data on all relevant expenditures.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for a new collection of information.
    The objective of the study is to collect information on the 
earnings and expenditures of Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) 
tournament operators and participants. The study will use two survey 
instruments to collect information from tournament operators and 
participants. One survey will ask tournament operators to characterize 
and quantify their operating costs and income sources in addition to 
describing their tournament participants. The other survey instrument 
will ask fishing tournament participants to estimate their expenditures 
associated with travel to, entering, and participating in the 
tournament.
    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) will collect cost and 
earnings data from all tournaments registered within the year 
(approximately 260 based on recent years' tournament registration 
data). In addition, NMFS will select fifty percent of registered 
tournaments to distribute expenditure surveys to anglers registered for 
those tournament events. The Atlantic HMS Management Division is 
currently consulting with tournament organizers and participants to 
design the survey instruments to ensure NMFS captures data on all 
relevant expenditures.
    As specified in the Magnuson-Stevenson Fishery Conservation and 
Management Act of 1996 (and reauthorized in 2007), NMFS is required to 
enumerate the economic impacts of the policies it implements on fishing 
participants and coastal communities. The cost and earnings data 
collected in this survey will be used to estimate the economic 
contributions and impacts of Atlantic HMS tournaments regionally.

II. Method of Collection

    The primary data collection vehicle will be paper and/or internet-
based survey forms delivered at tournament events. Telephone and 
personal interviews may be employed to supplement and verify written 
survey responses.
