Silicomanganese, which is sometimes called ferrosilicon manganese, is a ferroalloy composed principally of manganese, silicon, and iron, and normally contains much smaller proportions of minor elements, such as carbon, phosphorous and sulfur. Silicomanganese generally contains by weight not less than 4 percent iron, more than 30 percent manganese, more than 8 percent silicon and not more than 3 percent phosphorous. All compositions, forms and sizes of silicomanganese are included within the scope of these orders, including silicomanganese slag, fines and briquettes. Silicomanganese is used primarily in steel production as a source of both silicon and manganese. Silicomanganese is currently classifiable under subheading 7202.30.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Some silicomanganese may also currently be classifiable under HTSUS subheading 7202.99.5040.5 The AD Orders cover all silicomanganese, China, 59 FR 66003 (December 22, 1994) and Suspension Agreement on Silicomanganese from Ukraine; Termination of Suspension Agreement and Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 66 FR 43838 (August 21, 2001) (AD Orders). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 82 FR 46221 (October 4, 2017). 3 See Silicomanganese from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Expedited Fourth Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 83 FR 5609 (February 8, 2018).

Implementing regulations at 50 CFR part 635 are issued under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., and the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act (ATCA), 16 U.S.C. 971 et seq. ATCA authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to promulgate regulations, as may be necessary and appropriate, to implement recommendations of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas. An Atlantic HMS tournament is a tournament that awards points or prizes for catching Atlantic HMS (swordfish, billfish, sharks and/or tunas). Existing regulations at § 635.5(d) require Atlantic HMS tournament operators to register their tournaments with NMFS four weeks in advance of the tournament. SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\12DEN1.SGM 12DEN1 63832 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 238 / Wednesday, December 12, 2018 / Notices When registering, operators must provide contact information and the tournament’s date(s), location(s), and target species. In addition, HMS tournament registration provides a method for tournament operators to request educational and regulatory outreach materials from NMFS. In addition to requiring tournament operators to register, the regulations at § 635.5(d) also authorize NMFS to select HMS tournaments for reporting. Currently, all billfish and swordfish tournaments are selected for reporting. When selected for reporting, Atlantic HMS tournament operators are required to submit an HMS tournament catch summary report within seven days after tournament fishing has ended. NMFS recently developed the online Atlantic Tournament Registration and Reporting (ATR) system that allows tournament operators to easily register their tournaments and report. For over a year, NMFS received positive feedback from tournament operators about the ease of use of the ATR system. In this notice, NMFS announces that all Atlantic HMS tournaments, not just billfish and swordfish tournaments, will be selected for reporting beginning on January 1, 2019. The estimated burden to the public for all HMS tournaments to report has already been approved under the Paperwork Reduction Act (OMB 0648–0323). NMFS does not expect the burden on tournaments to increase as most of the catch data in the summary report is routinely collected in the course of regular tournament operations and all tournament operators may use the ATR system to report. NMFS uses the data collected in these reports to estimate the total annual catch of HMS and the potential impacts to tournament operations in relation to other types of fishing activities.

Sampling may occur anywhere within the species’ range, but primarily in the Gulf of Mexico coastal areas of Florida bordering Sarasota, Manatee, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Hernando and Pasco counties. To capture sawfish, researchers would use bottom longline, drum line, gillnet, angling gear, seine net, and cast net. Captured smalltooth sawfish would be sexed, measured, weighed (if possible), marked with passive integrated transponder (PIT) tags, dart tags, and roto tags, photographed, ultrasounded, and tissue sampled (i.e., blood, fin clip, muscle biopsy). A maximum of 50 neonate and juvenile life stages and 50 adult and sub-adult life stages would be taken annually with subsets of 25 of each life stage group fitted with internal or external telemetry tracking devices. Up to one sawfish from each life stage group may unintentionally die during research activities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    The U.S. Atlantic HMS fisheries are managed under the 2006 
Consolidated HMS Fishery Management Plan and its amendments. 
Implementing regulations at 50 CFR part 635 are issued under the 
authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., and the Atlantic 
Tunas Convention Act (ATCA), 16 U.S.C. 971 et seq. ATCA authorizes the 
Secretary of Commerce to promulgate regulations, as may be necessary 
and appropriate, to implement recommendations of the International 
Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas.
    An Atlantic HMS tournament is a tournament that awards points or 
prizes for catching Atlantic HMS (swordfish, billfish, sharks and/or 
tunas). Existing regulations at Sec.  635.5(d) require Atlantic HMS 
tournament operators to register their tournaments with NMFS four weeks 
in advance of the tournament.

When registering, operators must provide contact information and the 
tournament's date(s), location(s), and target species. In addition, HMS 
tournament registration provides a method for tournament operators to 
request educational and regulatory outreach materials from NMFS.
    In addition to requiring tournament operators to register, the 
regulations at Sec.  635.5(d) also authorize NMFS to select HMS 
tournaments for reporting. Currently, all billfish and swordfish 
tournaments are selected for reporting. When selected for reporting, 
Atlantic HMS tournament operators are required to submit an HMS
