The title will be ‘‘Understanding Anglers’ Preferences for Summer Flounder and Black Sea Bass.’’ The recreational fishing community and regional fisheries management councils along the Atlantic coast have requested more species-specific socioeconomic and behavioral studies of recreational fishing that can be used in the analysis of fisheries policies. This survey will address that stated need for more species-specific studies by focusing on two very popular recreational species caught along the Atlantic coast from Massachusetts to North Carolina: Summer flounder and black sea bass. The objective of the survey will be to understand how anglers respond to changes in expected harvest distributions of summer flounder and black sea bass. This E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1
