Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 81809-81810 [2015-32915]

Download as PDF 81809 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 251 / Thursday, December 31, 2015 / Notices previous years, NMFS only included the cost of employees’ time (salary and benefits) spent working on the program in calculating DPC rather than all incremental costs of management, data collection, and enforcement. NMFS is still evaluating how to incorporate additional costs and may, in coordination with the Pacific Fishery Management Council, do so in the future. ‘‘V’’, as specified at § 660.115(b)(1)(ii), is the total ex-vessel value, as defined at § 660.111, for each sector from the previous calendar year. To calculate ‘‘V’’ for use in determining 2016 fee percentages, electronic fish ticket data in the Pacific Fisheries Information Network (PacFIN) are used for the Shorebased IFQ Program. The MS Coop Program and the C/P Coop Program values are calculated using the average price of whiting derived from those reported on the MS Coop Program cost recovery form from calendar year 2014. This average price ($0.11) and the retained catch estimates (weight) from the observer data (as reported in PacFIN from NORPAC) were used to calculate the ‘‘V’’ for the MS and C/P Coop Programs. Ex-vessel values and amounts landed each year fluctuate, and the amount NMFS collects each year in cost recovery fees also fluctuate accordingly. When the cost recovery fees collected by NMFS are greater or less than the actual net incremental costs incurred for a given year, the fee percentage for the following year will be adjusted accordingly (as specified § 660.115(b)(1)(i)). It is expected that, in 2015, the Shorebased IFQ Program will have paid $292,051.99 less than the 2014 DPC used to calculate its 2015 fee percentage. As the Shorebased IFQ Program fee percentage for 2016 has FY 2014 DPC used for 2015 calculation tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Shorebased IFQ Program ........................................................... MS Coop Program ....................................................................... C/P Coop Program ...................................................................... The adjustments for the MS Coop and C/P Coop programs are included, and increase or reduce their DPC values which are shown below in the fee percentage calculations for that sector. Shorebased IFQ Program—3.0% = the lower of 3% or ($2,310,729.95/ $52,052,455) × 100 MS Coop Program—2.5% = the lower of 3% or ($372,976.40/$15,189,237) × 100 C/P Coop Program—0.7% = the lower of 3% or ($168,971.09/$25,219,201) × 100. MS pricing is the average price per pound that the C/P Coop Program will use to determine their fee amount due (MS pricing multiplied by the value of the aggregate pounds of all groundfish species harvested by the vessel registered to a C/P-endorsed limited entry trawl permit, multiplied by the C/ P fee percentage, equals the fee amount due). In past years, MS pricing was based on the average price per pound of Pacific whiting as reported in PacFIN from the Shorebased IFQ Program. In other words, data from the IFQ fishery was used as a proxy for the MS average price per pound to determine the ‘‘MS pricing’’ used in the calculation for the C/P sector’s fee amount due. For 2016 MS pricing, NMFS used values derived from those reported on the MS Coop Program cost recovery form from calendar year 2014 as this was VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Dec 30, 2015 Jkt 238001 2015 Fees expected $1,546,740.00 $177,110.00 N/A determined to be the best information available. NMFS has calculated the 2016 MS pricing to be used as a proxy by the C/P Coop Program as: $0.11/lb for Pacific whiting. Cost recovery fees are submitted to NMFS by Fish buyers via Pay.gov (https://www.pay.gov/paygov/). Fish buyers registered with Pay.gov can login in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. Fish buyers not registered with Pay.gov can go to the cost recovery forms directly from the Web site below.

As stated in the preamble to the cost recovery proposed and final rules, in the spring of each year, NMFS will release an annual report documenting the details and data used for the above calculations. The report will include information such as the fee percentage calculation, program costs, and exvessel value by sector. The annual report for fishing year 2013 and calculation for 2014 is available at: http:// www.westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/ publications/fishery_management/ trawl_program/analytical%20docs/cost_ recovery_annual_report_01.pdf.

It is expected that, in 2015, the MS Coop Program will have paid $82,642.35 less than the 2014 DPC used to calculate its 2015 fee percentage. Therefore, the MS Coop Program DPC used to calculate the 2016 fee percentage will be adjusted upward by $82,642.35. The adjustment to the C/P Coop program costs used to determine the 2015 fee percentage showed that NMFS anticipated collecting $15,295.71 more than the costs used to determine the 2015 fee, resulting in a fee percentage of negative 0.1. However, because a fee percentage cannot be negative, NMFS set the 2015 C/P Coop program cost recovery fee at 0.0 percent (79 FR 78400) and is now deducting $15,295.71 from the DPC used to calculate the 2016 fee percentage. $1,254,688.01 $94,467.65 $0.00 Adjustment for 2016 N/A $82,642.35 ($15,295.71) The annual report for fishing year 2015 and calculation for 2016 will be made available to the public electronically via the NMFS West Coast Region Groundfish Web site http://www. westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/fisheries/ groundfish_catch_shares/index.html.
