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.

Needs and Uses: The International Billfish Angler Survey began in 1969 and is an integral part of the Billfish Research Program at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC). The survey tracks recreational angler fishing catch and effort for billfish in the Pacific and Indian Oceans in support of the Pacific and Western Pacific Fishery Management Councils, authorized under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA). The data are used by scientists and fishery managers to assist with assessing the status of billfish stocks. The survey is intended for anglers cooperating in the Billfish Program and is entirely voluntary. This survey is specific to recreational anglers fishing for Istiophorid and Xiphiid billfish in the Pacific and Indian Oceans; as such it provides the only estimates of catch per unit of effort for recreational billfish fishing in those areas.
