Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 63748 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 203 / Wednesday, October 21, 2015 / Notices Atlantic Shark Identification Workshops Since January 1, 2008, Atlantic shark dealers have been prohibited from receiving, purchasing, trading, or bartering for Atlantic sharks unless a valid Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop certificate is on the premises of each business listed under the shark dealer permit that first receives Atlantic sharks (71 FR 58057; October 2, 2006). Dealers who attend and successfully complete a workshop are issued a certificate for each place of business that is permitted to receive sharks. These certificate(s) are valid for 3 years. Approximately 115 free Atlantic Shark Identification Workshops have been conducted since January 2007. Currently, permitted dealers may send a proxy to an Atlantic Shark Identification workshop. However, if a dealer opts to send a proxy, the dealer must designate a proxy for each place of business covered by the dealer’s permit which first receives Atlantic sharks. Only one certificate will be issued to each proxy. A proxy must be a person who is currently employed by a place of business covered by the dealer’s permit; is a primary participant in the identification, weighing, and/or first receipt of fish as they are offloaded from a vessel; and who fills out dealer reports. Atlantic shark dealers are prohibited from renewing a Federal shark dealer permit unless a valid Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop certificate for each business location that first receives Atlantic sharks has been submitted with the permit renewal application. Additionally, trucks or other conveyances that are extensions of a dealer’s place of business must possess a copy of a valid dealer or proxy Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop certificate. Since 2010, as part of their 2008 Interstate Coastal Shark Fishery Management Plan (FMP), the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) has required all state dealers who purchase sharks to hold a Federal commercial shark dealer permit. A recent comparison of dealers who have reported purchasing smooth dogfish in 2015 with a current list of Federal shark dealer permit holders indicated that a number of state dealers in some Atlantic coastal states did not hold a Federal commercial shark dealer permit. On October 8, 2015, ASMFC notified all states from Maine through Florida of this issue, and reminded them of the requirement that all shark dealers must hold a Federal commercial shark dealer permit. In addition, NMFS is currently in final rulemaking for Amendment 9 to VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:39 Oct 20, 2015 Jkt 238001 the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP (August 7, 2014, 79 FR 4627), which will establish an effective date for many of the smooth dogfish regulations that were finalized in Amendment 3 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP, including the requirement for vessel and dealer permits. Given ASMFC’s recently discovered need to ensure that all state dealers purchasing smooth dogfish are federally permitted and in anticipation of the final rule for Amendment 9 and its requirements, NMFS has determined that an additional Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop is needed to accommodate shark dealers in the New York and southern New England area. Affected dealers may also attend the previously scheduled November 12, 2015, workshop in Mount Pleasant, SC, or the December 3, 2015, workshop in Largo, FL (80 FR 54533). Date, Time, and Location of Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop December 10, 2015, 12 p.m.–4 p.m., LaQuinta Inn & Suites, 10 Aero Road, Bohemia, NY 11706. Registration To register for a scheduled Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop, please contact Eric Sander at esander@ peoplepc.com or at (386) 852–8588. Registration Materials To ensure that workshop certificates are linked to the correct permits, participants will need to bring the following specific items to the workshop: • All participants must bring proof of identification. • Atlantic shark dealer permit holders must bring proof that the attendee is an owner or agent of the business (such as articles of incorporation), a copy of the applicable permit, and proof of identification. • Atlantic shark dealer proxies must bring documentation from the permitted dealer acknowledging that the proxy is attending the workshop on behalf of the permitted Atlantic shark dealer for a specific business location, a copy of the appropriate valid permit, and proof of identification. Workshop Objectives The Atlantic Shark Identification Workshops are designed to reduce the number of unknown and improperly identified sharks reported in the dealer reporting form and increase the accuracy of species-specific dealerreported information. Reducing the number of unknown and improperly identified sharks will improve quota monitoring and the data used in stock PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 assessments. These workshops will train shark dealer permit holders or their proxies to properly identify Atlantic shark carcasses. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: October 16, 2015. Emily H.

Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA), the Secretary of Commerce has the responsibility for the conservation and management of marine fishery resources. We, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and the Regional Fishery Management Councils are delegated the majority of this responsibility. The New England Fishery Management Council (Council) develops management plans for fishery resources in New England. In 2010, we implemented a new suite of regulations for the Northeast (NE) multispecies fishery through Amendment 16 to the Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (Amendment 16). This action updated status determination criteria for all regulated NE multispecies or ocean pout stocks; adopted rebuilding programs for NE multispecies stocks newly classified as being overfished and subject to overfishing; revised management measures, including significant revisions to the sector management measures, necessary to end overfishing, rebuild overfished regulated NE multispecies and ocean pout stocks, and mitigate the adverse economic impacts of increased effort controls. It also implemented new requirements under Amendment 16 for establishing acceptable biological catch (ABC), annual catch limits (ACLs), and accountability measures (AMs) for each stock managed under the FMP, pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:39 Oct 20, 2015 Jkt 238001 Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). Revisions This revision incorporates a number of recent changes related to regulatory actions. Framework Adjustment 48 to the FMP (78 FR 26118; May 3, 2013) proposed to exempt sector vessels targeting monkfish from the additional at-sea monitoring coverage necessary to monitor groundfish catch. This measure was intended to allocate limited at-sea monitoring resources to monitor those trips that catch the most groundfish. To implement this measure, NMFS added a question to both the pre-trip notification and Northeast Fisheries Observer Program notification to allow fishermen to indicate what fishery they intend to participate in. This change allowed NMFS to identify trips that may qualify for this exemption, in order to deploy observers and at-sea monitors appropriately to achieve the coverage levels required by the FMP. Framework 48 also eliminated the dockside monitoring program established under Amendment 16 because NMFS determined dealer reporting combined with dockside intercepts by enforcement personnel are sufficient to ensure reliable landings data. Elimination of the dockside monitoring program was not included in the applicable non-substantive change request and thus this change will be included in the revision/extension. As part of Framework Adjustment 53 to the FMP (80 FR 25110; May 1, 2015), NMFS implemented a requirement that vessels that declare trips into the Gulf of Maine Broad Stock Area and any other broad stock area (i.e., Georges Bank or Southern New England) on the same trip submit a daily catch report via vessel monitoring system (VMS). We determined the daily VMS trip reports were necessary to ensure accurate apportionment of catch and help enforcement efforts. This requirement was approved temporarily through emergency PRA approval. We are proposing to permanently adjust this information collection to include this reporting requirement. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: Annually, on occasion, weekly, daily and as requested. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory.

    Needs and Uses: This request is for revision and extension of a 
current information collection. Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery 
Conservation and Management Act (MSA), the Secretary of Commerce has 
the responsibility for the conservation and management of marine 
fishery resources. We, National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration's (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and 
the Regional Fishery Management Councils are delegated the majority of 
this responsibility. The New England Fishery Management Council 
(Council) develops management plans for fishery resources in New 
England.
    In 2010, we implemented a new suite of regulations for the 
Northeast (NE) multispecies fishery through Amendment 16 to the 
Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (Amendment 16). This action 
updated status determination criteria for all regulated NE multispecies 
or ocean pout stocks; adopted rebuilding programs for NE multispecies 
stocks newly classified as being overfished and subject to overfishing; 
revised management measures, including significant revisions to the 
sector management measures, necessary to end overfishing, rebuild 
overfished regulated NE multispecies and ocean pout stocks, and 
mitigate the adverse economic impacts of increased effort controls. It 
also implemented new requirements under Amendment 16 for establishing 
acceptable biological catch (ABC), annual catch limits (ACLs), and 
accountability measures (AMs) for each stock managed under the FMP, 
pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act).

Revisions

    This revision incorporates a number of recent changes related to 
regulatory actions. Framework Adjustment 48 to the FMP (78 FR 26118; 
May 3, 2013) proposed to exempt sector vessels targeting monkfish from 
the additional at-sea monitoring coverage necessary to monitor 
groundfish catch. This measure was intended to allocate limited at-sea 
monitoring resources to monitor those trips that catch the most 
groundfish. To implement this measure, NMFS added a question to both 
the pre-trip notification and Northeast Fisheries Observer Program 
notification to allow fishermen to indicate what fishery they intend to 
participate in. This change allowed NMFS to identify trips that may 
qualify for this exemption, in order to deploy observers and at-sea 
monitors appropriately to achieve the coverage levels required by the 
FMP. Framework 48 also eliminated the dockside monitoring program 
established under Amendment 16 because NMFS determined dealer reporting 
combined with dockside intercepts by enforcement personnel are 
sufficient to ensure reliable landings data. Elimination of the 
dockside monitoring program was not included in the applicable non-
substantive change request and thus this change will be included in the 
revision/extension.
    As part of Framework Adjustment 53 to the FMP (80 FR 25110; May 1, 
2015), NMFS implemented a requirement that vessels that declare trips 
into the Gulf of Maine Broad Stock Area and any other broad stock area 
(i.e., Georges Bank or Southern New England) on the same trip submit a 
daily catch report via vessel monitoring system (VMS). We determined 
the daily VMS trip reports were necessary to ensure accurate 
apportionment of catch and help enforcement efforts. This requirement 
was approved temporarily through emergency PRA approval. We are 
proposing to permanently adjust this information collection to include 
this reporting requirement.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit organizations.
    Frequency: Annually, on occasion, weekly, daily and as requested.
    Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory.
    This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov. 
Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections 
currently under review by OMB.
    Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information 
collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice 
to OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov or fax to (202) 395-5806.
