The applicant proposes to import seven captive-born California sea lions from Shanghai Changfeng Ocean World in Shanghai City, China to the Columbus Zoo satellite facility in Myakka City, FL for the purpose of public display. The Columbus Zoo has provided documentation that its satellite facility will be: (1) Open to the public on regularly scheduled basis with access that is not limited or restricted other than by charging for an admission fee; (2) offers a conservation and educational program based on professionally accepted standards of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums; and (3) holds an Exhibitor’s License issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture under the Animal Welfare Act (7 U.S.C. 2131–59).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) collects information about fishing expenses in the American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) boat-based reef fish, bottomfish, and pelagics fisheries with which to conduct economic analyses that will improve fishery management in those fisheries; satisfy NMFS’ legal mandates under Executive Order 12866, the MagnusonSteven Fishery Conservation and Management Act (U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act; and quantify achievement of the performances measures in the NMFS Strategic Operating Plans. An example of these performance measures: The economic data collected will allow quantitative assessment of the fisheries sector’s social and economic contribution, linkages and impacts of the fisheries sector to the overall economy through Input-output (I–O) models analyses. Results from I–O analyses will not only provide indicators of social-economic benefits of the marine ecosystem, a performance measure in the NMFS Strategic Operating Plans, but also be used to assess how fishermen and economy will be impacted by and respond to regulations likely to be considered by fishery managers. These data are collected in conjunction with catch and effort data already being collected in this fishery as part of its creel survey program. The creel survey program is one of the major data collection systems to monitor fisheries resources in these three geographic areas. The survey monitors the islands’ fishing activities and interviews returning fishermen at the most active launching ramps/docks during selected time periods on the islands. Participation in the economic data collection is voluntary. E:\FR\FM\07APN1.SGM 07APN1 17000 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 66 / Friday, April 7, 2017 / Notices II. Method of Collection The economic surveys are conducted via in-person interviews when a fishing trip is completed. Captains of selected vessels by the creel survey are interviewed to report information about trip costs, input usage, and input prices. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0635. Form Number(s): None.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a currently approved information 
collection.
    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) collects information 
about fishing expenses in the American Samoa, Guam, and the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) boat-based reef 
fish, bottomfish, and pelagics fisheries with which to conduct economic 
analyses that will improve fishery management in those fisheries; 
satisfy NMFS' legal mandates under Executive Order 12866, the Magnuson-
Steven Fishery Conservation and Management Act (U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the 
National Environmental Policy Act; and quantify achievement of the 
performances measures in the NMFS Strategic Operating Plans. An example 
of these performance measures: The economic data collected will allow 
quantitative assessment of the fisheries sector's social and economic 
contribution, linkages and impacts of the fisheries sector to the 
overall economy through Input-output (I-O) models analyses. Results 
from I-O analyses will not only provide indicators of social-economic 
benefits of the marine ecosystem, a performance measure in the NMFS 
Strategic Operating Plans, but also be used to assess how fishermen and 
economy will be impacted by and respond to regulations likely to be 
considered by fishery managers. These data are collected in conjunction 
with catch and effort data already being collected in this fishery as 
part of its creel survey program. The creel survey program is one of 
the major data collection systems to monitor fisheries resources in 
these three geographic areas. The survey monitors the islands' fishing 
activities and interviews returning fishermen at the most active 
launching ramps/docks during selected time periods on the islands. 
Participation in the economic data collection is voluntary.

II. Method of Collection

    The economic surveys are conducted via in-person interviews when a 
fishing trip is completed. Captains of selected vessels by the creel 
survey are interviewed to report information about trip costs, input 
usage, and input prices.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-0635.
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Review: Regular (extension of a currently approved 
collection).
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit organizations.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 600.
    Estimated Time per Response: 10 minutes per trip survey.
