Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request: Socioeconomics of Recreational Fishing in Florida's Gulf Coast, 8485-8486 [2016-03432]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 33 / Friday, February 19, 2016 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES approaches to restore, replace, rehabilitate, or acquire the equivalent of the injured natural resources and services. The Trustees’ preferred alternative for a restoration plan utilizes a comprehensive integrated ecosystem approach to best address these ecosystem-level injuries. The Trustees’ evaluation determined this alternative is best, among several other alternatives, at compensating the public for the losses to natural resources and services caused by the Deepwater Horizon incident. The Trustees’ proposed decision is to select a comprehensive restoration plan to guide and direct subsequent restoration planning and implementation during the coming decades. The Final PDARP/PEIS is programmatic; it describes the framework by which subsequent project specific restoration plans will be identified and developed, and sets forth the types of projects the Trustees will consider in each of the described restoration areas. The subsequent restoration plans will identify, evaluate, and select specific restoration projects for implementation that are consistent with the restoration framework laid out by the Final PDARP/PEIS. The Trustees considered this programmatic restoration planning decision in light of the proposed settlement among BP, the United States, and the States of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Texas to resolve BP’s liability for natural resource damages associated with the Deepwater Horizon incident. Under this proposed settlement, BP would pay a total of $8.1 billion for restoration to address natural resource injuries (this includes $1 billion already committed for early restoration), plus up to an additional $700 million to respond to natural resource damages unknown at the time of the settlement and/or to provide for adaptive management. The proposed Consent Decree for the proposed settlement was the subject of a separate public notice and comment process; the Notice of Lodging of the proposed Consent Decree under the Clean Water Act and Oil Pollution Act was published in the Federal Register on October 5, 2015 (80 FR 60180). Next Steps In accordance with NEPA, a Federal agency must prepare a concise public Record of Decision (ROD) at the time the agency makes a decision in cases involving an EIS (40 CFR 1505.2). The Trustees will issue a ROD pursuant to NEPA regulations at 40 CFR 1505.2 and OPA regulations at 15 CFR 990.23. Accordingly, the ROD for the Final PDARP/PEIS will provide and explain VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:59 Feb 18, 2016 Jkt 238001 the Trustees’ decisions regarding the selection of a preferred alternative. The Trustees will issue the ROD no earlier than 30 days after the Environmental Protection Agency publishes a notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of the Final PDARP/PEIS (40 CFR 1506.10). Administrative Record The documents included in the Administrative Record can be viewed electronically at the following location: http://www.doi.gov/deepwaterhorizon/ adminrecord. The Trustees opened a publicly available Administrative Record for the NRDA for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, including restoration planning activities, concurrently with publication of the 2011 Notice of Intent (NOI) to Begin Restoration Scoping and Prepare a Gulf Spill Restoration Planning PEIS (pursuant to 15 CFR 990.45). The Administrative Record includes the February 17, 2011, NOI for a 90-day formal scoping (76 FR 9327) and public comment period for this Final PDARP/ PEIS. The Trustees conducted the scoping in accordance with OPA (15 CFR 990.14(d)), NEPA (40 CFR 1501.7), and State authorities. As part of the scoping process, the Trustees hosted public meetings across all the Gulf States during spring 2011. Authority The authority of this action is the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (33 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.) and the implementing NRDA regulations found at 15 CFR part 990. Dated: February 11, 2016. Samuel D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for a new information collection. Through a partnership with The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami, we will collect information from recreational fishers to complete quantitative economic valuations of ecosystem goods and services produced for recreational fisheries in Florida’s Gulf Coast. The survey will utilize the stated choice method to estimate the marginal value of a change in catch rates and other biological or economic attributes of the recreational fishery. These may include; size, type of fish and/or method of fishing. This information will be utilized by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) and the National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) fisheries scientists and managers to enhance the scope of information used for stock assessment. Additionally, this economic data will be integrated into the recreational fisheries management decision-making processes. The information will directly benefit Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS), as it will help us to identify socioeconomic indicators for recreational fishing that we can incorporate into management process/ decisions and future condition reports to evaluate the status and trends of the recreational fishing ecosystem service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a new information collection.
    Through a partnership with The Rosenstiel School of Marine and 
Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami, we will collect 
information from recreational fishers to complete quantitative economic 
valuations of ecosystem goods and services produced for recreational 
fisheries in Florida's Gulf Coast. The survey will utilize the stated 
choice method to estimate the marginal value of a change in catch rates 
and other biological or economic attributes of the recreational 
fishery. These may include; size, type of fish and/or method of 
fishing.
    This information will be utilized by Florida Fish and Wildlife 
Conservation Commission (FFWCC) and the National Marine Fisheries 
Service, Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) fisheries 
scientists and managers to enhance the scope of information used for 
stock assessment. Additionally, this economic data will be integrated 
into the recreational fisheries management decision-making processes. 
The information will directly benefit Office of National Marine 
Sanctuaries (ONMS), as it will help us to identify socioeconomic 
indicators for recreational fishing that we can incorporate into 
management process/decisions and future condition reports to evaluate 
the status and trends of the recreational fishing ecosystem service.
