ACTION: Notice of a public meeting. AGENCY: NMFS has requested the Center for Independent Experts (CIE) to conduct a peer review of the agency’s SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:09 Apr 27, 2016 Jkt 238001 stock assessment of Alaska Sablefish (Anopoploma fimbria). The CIE is a group affiliated with the University of Miami that provides independent peer reviews of NMFS science nationwide, including reviews of stock assessments for fish and marine mammals. The Alaska Sablefish stock assessment is reviewed annually by the Alaska Fisheries Science Center, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) Plan Team, and the NPFMC Scientific and Statistical Committee. The CIE review will examine whether the assessment incorporates the best scientific information available for making management decisions and provides a reasonable approach to understanding the population dynamics and stock status of Alaska Sablefish. The public is invited to attend and observe the presentations and discussions between the CIE panel and the NMFS scientists who collected and processed the data, and designed the underlying model. DATES: The public meeting will be held from May 10 through May 12, 2016, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Alaska Daylight Time. ADDRESSES: The review will be held at the Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute, 17109 Pt. Lena Loop Rd, Juneau, AK 99801. Visitors will need to sign in at the front desk. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dana Hanselman, 907–789–6626. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CIE panel will consist of three peer reviewers who will assess materials related to the topic, participate in a review workshop with the NMFS scientists who developed the model and the analytical approach, and produce a report. This review will be highly technical in nature and will cover mathematical details of the analytical approach. More information about the CIE is available on its Web site at www.ciereviews.org. Members of the public are invited to observe, and will be provided opportunities to contribute on May 10 and May 12, 2016. The final report will be available prior to the September NPFMC Plan Team meetings and will consist of individual reports from each panelist and a summary report. The results of the review will be presented during the September 2016 NPFMC Plan Team meeting, which will be announced at a later time in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    Marine recreational anglers are surveyed to collect catch and 
effort data, fish biology data, and angler socioeconomic 
characteristics. These data are required to carry out provisions of the 
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 
1801 et seq.), as amended, regarding conservation and management of 
fishery resources.
    Marine recreational fishing catch and effort data are collected 
through a

combination of mail surveys, telephone surveys and on-site intercept 
surveys with recreational anglers. Amendments to the Magnuson-Stevens 
Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) require the development 
of an improved data collection program for recreational fisheries. To 
partially meet these requirements, NOAA Fisheries designed and 
implemented the MRIP Fishing Effort Survey (FES) to ensure better 
coverage and representation of recreational fishing activity.
    The FES is a self-administered, household mail survey that samples 
from a residential address frame to collect data on the number of 
recreational anglers and the number of recreational fishing trips. The 
survey estimates marine recreational fishing activity for all coastal 
states from Maine through Texas.
    FES estimates are combined with estimates derived from independent 
but complementary surveys of fishing trips, the Access-Point Angler 
Intercept Survey, to estimate total, state-level fishing catch, by 
species. These estimates are used in the development, implementation, 
and monitoring of fishery management programs by NOAA Fisheries, 
regional fishery management councils, interstate marine fisheries 
commissions, and state fishery agencies.

II. Method of Collection

    Information will be collected through self-administered mail 
surveys.
