I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a current information collection.
    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) manages fishing 
activities in the Rose Atoll Marine, Marianas Trench, and Pacific 
Remote Islands Marine National Monuments. Regulations at 50 CFR part 
665 require the owner and operator of a vessel used to non-commercially 
fish for, take, retain, or possess any management unit species in these 
monuments to hold a valid permit.
    Regulations also require the owner and operator of a vessel that is 
chartered to fish recreationally for, take, retain, or possess, any 
management unit species in these monuments to hold a valid permit. The 
fishing vessel must be registered to the permit. The charter business 
must be established legally in the permit area where it will operate. 
Charter vessel clients are not required to have a permit.
    The permit application collects basic information about the permit 
applicant, type of operation, vessel, and permit area. NMFS uses this 
information to determine permit eligibility. The information is 
important for understanding the nature of the fishery and provides a 
link to participants. It also aids in the enforcement of Fishery 
Ecosystem Plan measures.
    Regulations also require the vessel operator to report a complete 
record of catch, effort, and other data on a NMFS logsheet. The vessel 
operator must record all requested information on the logsheet within 
24 hours of the completion of each fishing day. The vessel operator 
also must sign, date, and submit the form to NMFS within 30 days of the 
end of each fishing trip.

II. Method of Collection

    NMFS collects information on paper permit applications and 
logsheets.
