Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of 
information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. chapter 35).
    Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    Title: Alaska Saltwater Sport Fishing Economic Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 0648-0639.
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Request: Regular (reinstatement without change).
    Number of Respondents: 2,902.
    Average Hours per Response: Survey, 30 minutes; follow-up telephone 
interview, 6 minutes.
    Burden Hours: 1,374.
    Needs and Uses: This request is for a reinstatement, with changes, 
without change, of a previously approved information collection.
    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) previously collected 
survey data in 2007 and 2012 for conducting economic analyses of marine 
sport fishing in Alaska. These surveys were necessary to understand the 
factors that affect the economic value of marine recreational fishing 
trips and improve estimates of fishing trip values that can aid fishery 
managers evaluate management options pertaining to sport fisheries. The 
proposed survey is an update of the previously conducted surveys and is 
needed to improve estimates of fishing trip values potentially affected 
by recent changes in federal recreational fisheries off Alaska, most 
notably the Halibut Catch Sharing Plan (76 FR 44156) which went into 
effect in 2014 for the Pacific halibut fishery. Several questions in 
the survey have been updated to better reflect these recent fishery 
management changes.
    The Federal Government is responsible for the management of the 
Pacific halibut sport fishery off Alaska, while the State of Alaska 
manages the salmon sport fisheries (Chinook, coho, sockeye, chum, and 
pink), as well as several other saltwater sport fisheries. The updated 
survey's scope covers marine sport fishing for Pacific halibut, salmon, 
and other popular marine sport species in Alaska (e.g., lingcod and 
rockfish). The data collected from the survey will be used to update 
estimates of the demand for and value of marine fishing to anglers and 
to analyze how the type of fish caught, fishery regulations, and other 
factors affect fishing values and anglers' decisions to participate in 
Alaska marine fishing activities. The economic information provided 
from the survey will help inform fishery managers about the economic 
values of Alaska marine sport fisheries and the changes to 
participation in these fisheries with proposed regulations.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Frequency: One time.
    Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
