Download as PDF amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 60 / Thursday, March 28, 2019 / Notices Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to implement catch and/or fishing effort limits for management unit species (MUS) caught by pelagic fisheries in the American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (hereinafter, the U.S. territories). The process also allows NMFS to authorize the government of each U.S. territory to allocate a specific amount of MUS to a U.S. fishing vessel permitted under the FEP through a specified fishing agreement, not to exceed the amount made available for allocation by NMFS. Funds provided by U.S. fishing vessels through a specified fishing agreement are deposited into the Western Pacific Sustainable Fisheries Fund (SFF) to support fisheries development projects listed in a marine conservation plan of a U.S. territory submitted to and approved by the Secretary of Commerce. Data gathered under a specified fishing agreement will include the identity of fishing vessels subject to the agreement, the amount (weight) of MUS or fishing effort to which the agreement applies, and the amount of monetary contributions that fishing vessel, subject to the agreement, will deposit into the SFF, if applicable. Additionally, specified fishing agreements must be signed by an authorized official of the U.S. territory or designated representative, and be signed by each vessel owner or designated representative. There is no form for an agreement. NMFS will use the data collected to determine vessel eligibility, and ensure the amount of MUS or fishing effort available for allocation to a U.S. fishing vessel is consistent with the Pelagic FEP, the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and other applicable laws, and the conservation needs of the stock. Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-profit organizations; State or Territorial government. Frequency: Annual. Respondent’s Obligation: To submit a complete specified fishing agreement that includes the information set forth in federal regulations at 50 CFR 665.819.

Average Hours per Response: 0.083. Burden Hours: 8,333. Needs and Uses: Data collected from the APAIS are used to estimate the finfish catch per angler of recreational saltwater fishers. These APAIS estimates are combined with estimates derived from independent but complementary surveys of fishing effort, the Fishing Effort Survey and the ForHire Survey, to estimate total, state-level fishing catch by species. These estimates are used in the development, implementation, and monitoring of fishery management programs by the NMFS, regional fishery management councils, interstate marine fisheries commissions, and state fishery agencies. These data are required to carry out provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), as amended, regarding conservation and management of fishery resources.
