PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Type of Request: Regular. Number of Respondents: 440. Average Hours per Response: 5 minutes for returning a regular tag, and 20 minutes for returning an internal archival tag. Burden Hours: 89 Needs and Uses: NOAA Fisheries is mandated to assess the health of the populations of commercially important species with the best information possible. Groundfish tagging programs in the northeastern Pacific Ocean and Alaska waters provide essential research data on groundfish life histories and migration patterns that are necessary for successful management. Collecting tag recovery data from the public is essential for the success of this program. Each year, thousands of fish are caught during NOAA Fisheries stock assessment surveys. These fish are weighed and measured, and their sex is determined. Fish that appear healthy and uninjured are tagged before being released back into the wild. Fishermen and seafood processors subsequently find the tagged fish. By returning the tag to NOAA Fisheries, along with information on when and where the fish was caught and the size and weight of the fish, these fishermen and processors provide extremely valuable information to fishery scientists and managers. Tagging groundfish for subsequent tracking and recovery is an important tool for managing fishery resources and the information gathered has resulted in numerous scientific and management publications by NOAA Fisheries personnel. Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; State, local, or tribal government; business or other for-profit organizations. Frequency: Once per year. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of 
information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35).
    Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    Title: North Pacific Observer Program Safety and Security Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 0648-0759.
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Request: Regular (Revision request).
    Number of Respondents: 300.
    Average Hours per Response: .17 (10 minutes per respondent).
    Burden Hours: 50.
    Needs and Uses: NMFS certified observers are a vital part of 
fisheries management. Observers are deployed to collect fisheries data 
in the field; observers often deploy to vessels and work alongside 
fishers for weeks and months at a time. The work environment in which 
observers find themselves can be challenging, especially if the 
observer finds themselves a target for victim type violations such as 
sexual harassment, intimidation, or even assault. NOAA Fisheries' 
Office of Law Enforcement prioritizes investigations into allegations 
of sexual harassment, hostile work environment, assault, and other 
complaints that may affect observers individually. However, it is 
difficult for a person to disclose if they have been a victim of a 
crime, and law enforcement cannot respond if no complaint is submitted. 
The true number of observers who have experienced victim type crimes is 
unknown, and the reasons why they do not report is also unclear. More 
information is needed to understand how many observers per year 
experience victim type crimes, and why they chose not to report to law 
enforcement.
    The survey will also investigate the reasons that prevented 
observers from reporting these violations. The results of the survey 
will provide the Office of Law Enforcement a better understanding of 
how often observers are victimized, which will enable them to 
reallocate resources as needed, conduct more training for observers to 
ensure they know how to report, conduct training to ensure people 
understand what constitutes a victim crime, and to increase awareness 
of potential victimizations. Additionally, the survey results will help 
law enforcement understand the barriers to disclosure, so enforcement 
may begin to address these impediments so they no longer prevent 
observers from disclosure.

currently under review by OMB.

collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice 
to [email protected] or fax to (202) 395-5806.
