Download as PDF jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 36084 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 144 / Friday, July 26, 2019 / Notices impacts to both individuals and fishing communities tied to fisheries. An understanding of social impacts, achieved through the collection of data from individuals whom fish and live in fishing communities is a requirement under several federal laws. The National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) and the Magnuson Stevens Fishery Conservation Act (as amended 2007) describe such requirements. The collection of this data not only informs legal requirements for existing management actions, but also provides information for future and ongoing management actions requiring equivalent information. Literature indicates fisheries’ rationalization programs have an impact on those individuals participating in the affected fishery. The Pacific Fisheries Management Council implemented a rationalization program for the Pacific Coast Groundfish limited entry trawl fishery in January 2011. This research aims to continue to study the individuals in the affected fishery over the long term. Data collection will transition to a five-year cycle, beginning in FY 2020. Prior data collection related to program design elements. A baseline data collection occurred in 2010, followed by a second postimplementation collection in 2012, and a post quota-share trading collection in 2015/2016. The data collected has contributed to the five-year review of the program and highlighted several areas for continued research. Efforts have also identified the need for longterm data collection as species recover and external factors affect fishermen in this fishery as they continue to be faced with issues of underutilization, high costs of participation, and other challenges. This issue has been able to highlight several issues such as ‘graying of the fleet’ in smaller communities, changing women’s roles in commercial fishing, and fishermen’s adaptations under the new regulations. Continued research will identify and clarify continued and long-term social impacts. These efforts are critical and are a puzzle piece, that combined with the ongoing mandatory Economic Data Collection (EDC) and biological data collection, provides the Pacific Fisheries Management Council extensive information on concerns and impacts to fishing communities. Information from future and past data collections provide a time series data set of sociocultural information, indicating changes in the fishing communities. Data can inform multiple regulatory efforts as needed. Future data collection efforts will inform the 10-year review of the program. Primarily, this data VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Jul 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 collection will meet legal requirements to study and understand fishing communities and the individuals whom live in those communities. This study is managed by the Human Dimensions Team, Ecosystem Science Program, Conservation Biology Division, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Fisheries Service, Seattle, WA. II. Method of Collection In-person paper surveys and interviews are the primary data collection tools. Electronic surveys, verbal communications and collaborations with key informants, with the potential for small focus groups all supplement the primary tools for the greatest breadth of data collection possible.
