SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract This request is for revision of a current information collection. Fishery quotas are established for many species in the fishery management plans developed by the Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Fishery Management Council, the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council, and The Caribbean Fishery Management Council. The Southeast Fisheries Science Center has been delegated the responsibility to monitor these quotas. To do so in a timely manner, seafood dealers that handle these species are required to report the purchases (landings) of these species. The frequency of these reporting requirements varies depending on the magnitude of the quota (e.g., lower quota usually require more frequent reporting) and the intensity of fishing PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 effort. The most common reporting frequency is twice a month; however, some fishery quotas, (e.g., the mackerel gill net) necessitate weekly or by the trip reporting. In addition, information collection included in this family of forms includes interview with fishermen to gather information on the fishing effort, location and type of gear used on individual trips. This data collection is conducted for a subsample of the fishing trips and vessel/trips in selected commercial fisheries in the Southeast region and commercial fisheries of the U.S. Caribbean. Fishing trips and individuals are selected at random to provide a viable statistical sample. These data are used for scientific analyses that support critical conservation and management decisions made by national and international fishery management organizations. A revision to this collection is requested because the Caribbean Fishery Management Council has asked that commercial trip interviews be conducted for the fisheries of the Caribbean. In order to support this request, the SEFSC has developed a sampling procedure which will require additional commercial trip interview with fishers in the Caribbean. This data collection is authorized under 50 CFR part 622.5. II. Method of Collection Dealer reports may be emailed, faxed or mailed. Information from fisherman is obtained by face-to-face interviews.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for revision of a current information collection.
    Fishery quotas are established for many species in the fishery 
management plans developed by the Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Fishery 
Management Council, the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council, and 
The Caribbean Fishery Management Council. The Southeast Fisheries 
Science Center has been delegated the responsibility to monitor these 
quotas. To do so in a timely manner, seafood dealers that handle these 
species are required to report the purchases (landings) of these 
species. The frequency of these reporting requirements varies depending 
on the magnitude of the quota (e.g., lower quota usually require more 
frequent reporting) and the intensity of fishing effort. The most 
common reporting frequency is twice a month; however, some fishery 
quotas, (e.g., the mackerel gill net) necessitate weekly or by the trip 
reporting.
    In addition, information collection included in this family of 
forms includes interview with fishermen to gather information on the 
fishing effort, location and type of gear used on individual trips. 
This data collection is conducted for a subsample of the fishing trips 
and vessel/trips in selected commercial fisheries in the Southeast 
region and commercial fisheries of the U.S. Caribbean. Fishing trips 
and individuals are selected at random to provide a viable statistical 
sample. These data are used for scientific analyses that support 
critical conservation and management decisions made by national and 
international fishery management organizations.
    A revision to this collection is requested because the Caribbean 
Fishery Management Council has asked that commercial trip interviews be 
conducted for the fisheries of the Caribbean. In order to support this 
request, the SEFSC has developed a sampling procedure which will 
require additional commercial trip interview with fishers in the 
Caribbean. This data collection is authorized under 50 CFR part 622.5.
