Burden Hours: 42. Needs and Uses: This request is for extension of a current information collection. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Greater Atlantic Region manages the golden tilefish fishery of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the Northeastern United States, through the Tilefish Fishery Management Plan (FMP). The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council prepared the FMP pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). The regulations implementing the FMP are specified at 50 CFR part 648 subpart N. The recordkeeping and reporting requirements at § 648.294 form the basis for this collection of information. NMFS requests information from tilefish individual fishing quota (IFQ) permit holders in order to process applications to ensure that IFQ allocation holders are provided a statement of their annual catch quota, and for enforcement purposes, to ensure vessels are not exceeding an individual quota allocation. In conjunction with the application, NMFS also collects IFQ share accumulation information to ensure that an IFQ allocation holder does not acquire an excessive share of the total limited access privileges, as required by section 303A(d)(5)(C) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act. NMFS requests transfer application information to process and track requests from allocation holders to transfer quota allocation (permanent and temporary) to another entity. NMFS also collects information for cost recovery purposes as required under the Magnuson-Stevens Act to collect fees to recover the costs directly related to management, data collection and analysis, and enforcement of IFQ programs. Lastly, NMFS collects landings information to ensure that the amounts of tilefish landed and ex-vessel prices are properly recorded for quota monitoring purposes and the calculation of IFQ fees, respectively. Having this information results in an increasingly more efficient and accurate database for management and monitoring of fisheries of the Northeastern U.S. EEZ. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: Annually and on occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. E:\FR\FM\21SEN1.SGM 21SEN1

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration


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: Marine Recreational Information Program Fishing Effort 
Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 0648-0652.
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Request: Regular (revision and extension of a currently 
approved information collection).
    Number of Respondents: 110,000.
    Average Hours per Response: 10 minutes.
    Burden Hours: 18,333.
    Needs and Uses: 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.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
    This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov. 
Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections 
currently under review by OMB.
    Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information 
collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice 
to OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov or fax to (202) 395-5806.

    Dated: September 15, 2016.

NOAA PRA Clearance Officer.
