SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a new information collection.
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) 
Fisheries, Southeast Fisheries Science Center, proposes to collect very 
basic socioeconomic data from federally-permitted for-hire operators in 
the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic fisheries, using a mail sample 
survey. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) does not 
systematically collect information on for-hire trip prices and trip 
costs in the Southeast. The population consists of those for-hire 
operators who possess a federal for-hire permit for dolphin-wahoo, 
coastal migratory pelagics, snapper-grouper, or reef fish species in 
the South Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico. Each year we will sample 
approximately a third of the population. The two-page survey will be 
designed to collect basic data on trip revenues and trip costs as well 
as other related information. These data are needed to conduct 
socioeconomic analyses in support of management of the for-hire fishing 
industry and to satisfy legal requirements. The data will be used to 
assess how fishermen will be impacted by and respond to federal 
regulation likely to be considered by fishery managers.

II. Method of Collection

    The information will be collected on paper using a mail survey.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-xxxx.
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Review: Regular (request for a new information collection).

    Estimated Time per Response: 12 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 200 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0 in recordkeeping/
reporting costs.

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden

collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
