I. Abstract

    This request is for an extension of a currently approved 
information collection.
    Based on the management regime specified each year, designated 
regulatory areas in the commercial ocean salmon fishery off the coasts

collected in a timely manner. Requirements to land salmon within 
specific time frames and in specific areas may be implemented in the 
preseason regulations to aid in timely and accurate catch accounting 
for a regulatory area. State landing systems normally gather the data 
at the time of landing. If unsafe weather conditions or mechanical 
problems prevent compliance with landing requirements, fishermen need 
an alternative to allow for a safe response. Fishermen would be exempt 
from landing requirements if the appropriate notifications are made to 
provide the name of the vessel, the port where delivery will be made, 
the approximate amount of salmon (by species) on board, and the 
estimated time of arrival.

II. Method of Collection

    Notifications are made by at-sea radio or cellular phone 
transmissions.
