Box 21668, Juneau, AK 99802–1668. Telephone (907) 586–7228. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: cod and delivering their catch for processing to a shoreside processor located on land west of 170° W longitude in the Aleutian Islands (‘‘Aleutian Islands shoreplant’’). This harvest set-aside applies only if specific notification and performance requirements are met, and only during the first few months of the fishing year. This harvest set-aside provides the opportunity for vessels, Aleutian Islands shoreplants, and the communities where Aleutian Islands shoreplants are located to receive benefits from a portion of the Aleutian Islands Pacific cod fishery. The notification and performance requirements preserve an opportunity for the complete harvest of the BSAI Pacific cod resource if the setaside is not fully harvested. This collection of information contains the annual notification of intent that the City of Adak or the City of Atka submits to NMFS of its intent to process Aleutian Islands Pacific cod in the upcoming fishing year in order for the Bering Sea Trawl Catcher Vessel A-Season Sector Limitation and the Aleutian Islands Catcher Vessel Harvest Set-Aside to go into effect in the upcoming fishing year. The City Manager of Adak or the City Administrator of Atka is required to provide NMFS with the annual notification of intent no later than October 31 for the harvest set-aside to go into effect in the upcoming year. In March 2019, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia vacated the rule implementing Amendment 113 and remanded Amendment 113 to NMFS for reconsideration. In May 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a notice of appeal. As the annual notification of intent is based on the vacated regulations that implemented Amendment 113, this information will not be collected unless the regulations are reinstated on appeal. NMFS is requesting renewal of this collection of information in the event of a successful appeal. I. Abstract II. Method of Collection This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection. In 2016, NMFS implemented this collection of information under Amendment 113 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) Management Area. Amendment 113 modified management of the BSAI Pacific cod fishery to set aside a portion of the Aleutian Islands (AI) Pacific cod total allowable catch for harvest by vessels directed fishing for AI Pacific The City Manager of Adak or the City Administrator of Atka submits a letter or memorandum to NMFS indicating that the community he or she represents intends to process Aleutian Islands Pacific cod. This notification of intent must be submitted annually by certified mail through the U.S. Postal Service and postmarked no later than October 31.
