The fee percentage for 2016 is 0.37 percent for the Amendment 80 Program, 0.10 percent for the AFA inshore cooperatives, 0.10 percent for the AFA catcher/processor sector, 0.17 percent for the AFA mothership cooperative, 0 percent for the AIP program, and 0.29 percent for the CDQ groundfish and halibut Programs. This action is intended to provide the 2016 standard prices and fee percentages to calculate the required payment for cost recovery fees due by December 31, 2016. DATES: Effective November 28, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carl Greene, Fee Coordinator, 907–586–7105. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 304(d) of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) authorizes and requires the collection of cost recovery fees for limited access privilege programs and the CDQ Program. Cost recovery fees recover the actual costs directly related to the management, data collection, and enforcement of the programs. Section 304(d) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act mandates that cost recovery fees not exceed three percent of the annual exvessel value of fish harvested by a program subject to a cost recovery fee, and that the fee be collected either at the time of landing, filing of a landing report, or sale of such fish during a fishing season or in the last quarter of the calendar year in which the fish is harvested. NMFS manages the Amendment 80 Program, AFA Program, and AIP Program as limited access privilege programs. On January 5, 2016, NMFS published a final rule to implement cost recovery for these three limited access privilege programs and the CDQ groundfish and halibut programs (81 FR 150). The designated representative (for the purposes of cost recovery) for each program is responsible for submitting the fee payment to NMFS on or before the due date of December 31 of the year in which the landings were made. The total dollar amount of the fee due is determined by multiplying the NMFS published fee percentage by the exvessel value of all landings under the program made during the fishing year. NMFS publishes this notice of the fee percentages for the Amendment 80, AFA, AIP, and CDQ groundfish and PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 halibut fisheries in the Federal Register by December 1 each year. Standard Prices The fee liability is based on the exvessel value of fish harvested in each program. For purposes of calculating cost recovery fees, NMFS calculates a standard ex-vessel price (standard price) for each species. A standard price is determined using information on landings purchased (volume) and exvessel value paid (value). For most groundfish species, NMFS annually summarizes volume and value information for landings of all fishery species subject to cost recovery in order to estimate a standard price for each species. The standard prices are described in U.S. dollars per pound for landings made during the year. The standard prices for all species in the Amendment 80, AFA, AIP, and CDQ groundfish and halibut programs are listed in Table 1. Each landing made under each program is multiplied by the appropriate standard price to arrive at an ex-vessel value for each landing. These values are summed together to arrive at the ex-vessel value of each program (fishery value). Fee Percentage NMFS calculates the fee percentage each year according to the factors and methods described in Federal regulations at 50 CFR 679.33(c)(2), 679.66(c)(2), 679.67(c)(2), and 679.95(c)(2). NMFS determines the fee percentage that applies to landings made during the year by dividing the total costs directly related to the management, data collection, and enforcement of each program (direct program costs) during the year by the fishery value. NMFS captures direct program costs through an established accounting system that allows staff to track labor, travel, contracts, rent, and procurement. For 2016, the direct program costs were tracked from February 4, 2016 (the effective date of the rule), to September 30, 2016 (the end of the fiscal year). In subsequent years, direct program costs will be calculated based on a full fiscal year. NMFS will provide an annual report that summarizes direct program costs for each of the programs in early 2017. NMFS calculates the fishery value as described under the section ‘‘Standard Prices.’’ Amendment 80 Program Standard Prices and Fee Percentage The Amendment 80 Program allocates total allowable catches (TACs) of groundfish species, other than Bering Sea pollock, to identified trawl catcher/ E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1
