Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: West Coast Fisheries Participation Survey. OMB Control Number: 0648–xxxx. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular (request for a new information collection). Number of Respondents: 3,543. Average Hours per Response: 20 minutes. Burden Hours: 1,181. Needs and Uses: Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC) seeks to conduct fisheries participation analyses which involve a survey of United States (U.S.) West Coast commercial fishing participants. A U.S. mail survey will be conducted. The survey will be voluntary, and contacted individuals may decline to participate. Respondents will be asked to answer questions about their motivations for fishing and other factors that affect participation in the suite of West Coast commercial fisheries. Demographic and employment information will be collected so that responses can be organized based on a respondent typology. This survey is essential because data on smaller scale fishing practices, values, participation decisions and beliefs about fishing livelihoods are sparse; yet, they are critical to the development of usable fishery ecosystem models that account VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:02 Jan 19, 2017 Jkt 241001 for non-pecuniary benefits of fishing, as well as the ways in which fishing practices shape individual and community well-being. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: One time. 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.

With notice of this approval, the new requirements for observer statements described in the Federal Register notice published on September 28, 2016, are hereby effective.

See the Federal Register notice ‘‘Taking and Importing of Marine Mammals and Dolphin-Safe Tuna Products’’ published by NMFS on September 28, 2016 (81 FR 66625). NMFS’ authority to require these observer statements was subject to approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) because the statements are considered a ‘‘collection of information’’ subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Under the terms of the September 28, 2016, Federal Register notice, the observer statements would be required only upon publication of an additional notice in the Federal Register of OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act. On November 18, 2016, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, OMB approved the observer statements under Control Number 0648– 0335. Therefore, the observer statements are required beginning on January 23, 2017. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: January 17, 2017.
