SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for revision and extension of a currently approved 
information collection. A Human Interaction Data Sheet will be added to 
this data collection, and the currently approved forms in this 
collection (the Stranding Report form and Rehabilitation Disposition 
data sheet) have been slightly modified.
    The marine mammal stranding report provides information on 
strandings so that the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) can 
compile and analyze, by region, the species, numbers, conditions, and 
causes of illnesses and deaths in stranded marine mammals. NMFS 
requires this information to fulfill its management responsibilities 
under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 1421a). NMFS is also 
responsible for the welfare of marine mammals while in rehabilitation 
status. The data from the marine mammal rehabilitation disposition 
report are required for monitoring and tracking of marine mammals held 
at various NMFS-authorized facilities. This information is submitted 
primarily by members of the marine mammal stranding networks which are 
authorized by NMFS. A new human interaction data sheet will provide 
NMFS with consistent and detailed information on signs of human 
interaction in stranded marine mammals. This information will assist 
the Agency in tracking resource conflicts and will provide a solid 
scientific foundation for conservation and management of marine 
mammals. With a better understanding of interactions, appropriate 
measures can be taken to resolve conflicts and, stranding data are the 
best source of information regarding the occurrence of different types 
of human interaction.

II. Method of Collection

    Paper applications, electronic reports, and telephone calls are 
required from participants, and methods of submittal include Internet 
through the NMFS National Marine Mammal Stranding Database; facsimile 
transmission of paper forms; or mailed copies of forms.

report for and rehabilitation disposition forms; 45 minutes for the 
human interaction form.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 10,500.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $1,056 in recordkeeping/
reporting costs.

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of
