NOS proposes to estimate the costs associated with reported Vibrio illnesses, which is a demand expressed in a number of industry settings. Washington State Department of Health expressed desire for this information in order to more accurately plan their budgets. Management agency staff, restaurant staff, and oyster farm staff will be asked to help develop a model of what kind of expenditures accrue during a response to a reported Vibrio illness and estimate the value of those expenditures. The results of the project will be used to develop a model to estimate the full suite of costs of seafood-borne illness and will provide an estimate for agency and business budget planners. Affected Public: Management agency staff, oyster farm staff, restaurant staff. Frequency: Once. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov.

Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Reporting Requirements for Commercial Fisheries Authorization under Section 118 of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. OMB Control Number: 0648–0292. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular (extension of currently approved collection). Number of Respondents: 200. Average Hours per Response: 0.25. Burden Hours: 50. Needs and Uses: This request is for an extension of a currently approved information collection. Reporting injury to and/or mortalities of marine mammals is mandated under Section 118 of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. This information is required to determine the impacts of commercial fishing on marine mammal populations. This information is also used to categorize commercial fisheries into Categories I, II, or III. Participants in the first two categories must be authorized to take marine mammals, while those in Category III are exempt from that requirement. All categories must report injuries or mortalities on a National Marine Fisheries Service form. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations; Individuals or households; State, local, or tribal government. Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory.

Burden Hours: 20 hours. Needs and Uses: This is an extension and a revision of a currently approved information collection that contains applications for permits and transfers necessary to manage the Amendment 80 (A80) Program. The A80 Program is a limited access privilege program that allocates several Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands non-pollock trawl groundfish species among trawl fishery sectors and facilitates the formation of harvesting cooperatives in the nonAmerican Fisheries Act trawl catcher/ processor sector. PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This collection contains applications used by persons to apply for A80 QS, to transfer A80 QS, and to apply for an A80 limited access fishery permit; by A80 cooperatives to apply for CQ and transfer CQ; by cooperatives or CDQ groups to exchange CQ for one eligible flatfish species with CQ of a different eligible flatfish species; and by A80 vessel owners to replace their vessels. The National Marine Fisheries Service uses information from this collection to establish eligibility to receive A80 QS, CQ, and permits; transfer and assign harvest quota; replace vessels used in the A80 Program; determine A80 species initial total allowable catch assignments; determine which vessels must be tracked for catch accounting; and review ownership and control information to ensure that QS and CQ use caps are not exceeded.

    In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
(42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), a final determination has been made that the 
activities proposed are categorically excluded from the requirement to 
prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement.
    For the original Permit No. 16632, in compliance with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), NMFS 
determined that the activities proposed were consistent with the 
Preferred Alternative in the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact 
Statement for Hawaiian Monk Seal Recovery Actions (NMFS 2014), and that 
issuance of the permit would not have a significant adverse impact on 
the human environment. The minor amendment to Permit No. 16632-02 
extends the duration of the permit for one year, but does not change 
any other terms or conditions of the permit and no additional NEPA 
analysis was required.
    As required by the ESA, as applicable, issuance of these permit was 
based on a finding that such permits: (1) Were applied for in good 
faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered 
species; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policies set 
forth in Section 2 of the ESA.
    Authority: The requested permits have been issued under the Marine 
Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the

[[Page 10796]]

regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 
CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 
U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking, 
importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 
parts 222-226), as applicable.
