The final LOFF reflects information received in its response to information requests to nations and the public (82 FR 2961, January 10, 2017) and during the comment period on interactions between commercial fisheries exporting fish and fish products to the United States and marine mammals, and updates and revisions to the draft LOFF (82 FR 39762, August 22, 2017). NMFS will revise the LOFF in 2020. In anticipation of this revision, NMFS is soliciting information from harvesting nations; other foreign, regional, and local governments; regional fishery management organizations; nongovernmental organizations; industry organizations; academic institutions; and citizens and citizen groups to identify commercial fishing operations with intentional or incidental mortality and serious injury of marine mammals. For each item we are requesting you identify the exporting nation as the harvesting nation, the processing or intermediary nation, or both. For fisheries exporting fish and fish products to the United States NMFS is requesting the following information: • Number of participants; • Number of vessels; • Gear type; • Target species; • Area of operation; • Fishing season; and • Information regarding the frequency of marine mammal incidental and intentional mortality and serious injury. Such information may include fishing vessel records; reports of on-board fishery observers; information from offloading facilities, port-side government officials, enforcement agents, transshipment vessel workers and fish importers; government vessel registries; RFMO or intergovernmental agreement documents, reports, and statistical document programs; appropriate catch certification programs; and published literature and reports on commercial fishing operations with intentional or incidental mortality and serious injury of marine mammals. NMFS will consider all available information, as appropriate. Information should be as specific as possible as this will assist NMFS in its review. NMFS will consider several criteria when determining whether information is appropriate for use in making identifications, including: • Corroboration of information; VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:47 May 21, 2018 Jkt 241001 • Whether multiple sources have been able to provide information in support of an identification; • The methodology used to collect the information; • Specificity of the information provided; • Susceptibility of the information to falsification and alteration; and • Credibility of the individuals or organization providing the information. Dated: May 16, 2018. John Henderschedt, Director, Office of International Affairs and Seafood Inspection, National Marine Fisheries Service.
