The AFA authorizes the formation of fishery cooperatives in all sectors of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI) pollock fishery, grants antitrust exemptions to cooperatives in the mothership sector, and imposes operational limits on fishery cooperatives in the BSAI pollock fishery. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) issues a single pollock allocation to each cooperative, and the cooperative may make sub-allocations of pollock to each individual vessel owner in the cooperative. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34929 With respect to the fisheries off Alaska, the AFA Program is a suite of management measures that fall into four general regulatory categories: • Limit access into the fishing and processing sectors of the BSAI pollock fishery and that allocate pollock to such sectors (50 CFR 679.64). • Govern the formation and operation of fishery cooperatives in the BSAI pollock fishery, including filing of cooperative contracts (50 CFR 679.61 and 679.62). • Protection of other fisheries from spillover effects from the AFA (50 CFR 679.64). • Govern catch measurement and monitoring in the BSAI pollock fishery, including filing of annual reports and completing and submitting inshore catcher vessel pollock cooperative catch reports (50 CFR 679.63).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a current information collection.
    For a person to participate in Federal fisheries, the National 
Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) requires a Federal Fisheries Permit 
(FFP), a Federal Processor Permit (FPP), or an Exempted Fishing Permit 
(EFP). NMFS Alaska Region created a set of commercial fishing permits 
that operators of vessels and managers of processors must have on board 
or on site when fishing, receiving, buying, or processing groundfish 
and non-groundfish species. The permit information provides harvest 
gear types; descriptions of vessels, shoreside processors, and 
stationary floating processors; and expected fishery activity levels. 
These

permits provide NMFS with a way to monitor participation in Federal 
fisheries.
    Section 303(b)(1) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act specifically 
recognizes the need for permit issuance. The requirement of a permit 
for marine resource users is one of the regulatory steps taken to carry 
out conservation and management objectives. The issuance of a permit is 
an essential ingredient in the management of fishery resources needed 
for identification of the participants, expected activity levels, and 
for regulatory compliance (e.g., withholding of permit issuance pending 
collection of unpaid penalties).

II. Method of Collection

    Respondents have a choice of either electronic or paper forms. 
Methods of submittal include mail and facsimile transmission.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-0206.

    Type of Review: Regular submission (extension of a current 
information collection).
    Affected Public: Business or other profit organizations; 
individuals or households.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 662.
    Estimated Time Per Response: Federal Fisheries Permit, 21 minutes; 
Federal Processor Permit, 25 minutes; and Exempted Fishing Permit, 20 
hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 319 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $864 in recordkeeping/
reporting costs.

IV. Request for Comments

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

utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden 
(including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; 
(c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on respondents, including through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information
