SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    Type of Review: Regular submission (Extension of a current 
information collection). The National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration's (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) 
requests an extension to a current collection of information under OMB 
Control No. 0648-0673.
    The American lobster fishery is cooperatively managed by the states 
and NMFS under the authority of the Atlantic Coastal Fisheries 
Cooperative Management Act. This collection of information is in 
response to several addenda to Amendment 3 of the Interstate Fishery 
Management Plan for American Lobster that work to reduce trap fishing 
effort through limited entry fishing and trap allocation limit 
reductions. This program is intended to help control fishing effort 
while increasing economic flexibility in the American lobster trap 
fishery.
    Currently, Federal lobster permit holders qualified to fish with 
trap gear in Lobster Conservation Management Areas 2 and 3 are 
undergoing scheduled annual trap allocation reductions of 5 percent per 
year until 2021 (Area 2) and 2020 (Area 3). In 2015, in an effort to 
help mitigate the economic burden of these reductions, NMFS and state 
agencies implemented the Lobster Trap Transfer Program that allows all 
qualified Federal lobster permit holders to buy and sell trap 
allocation from Areas 2, 3, or Outer Cape Cod. Each transaction 
includes a conservation tax of 10 percent, which deducts a number of 
traps equal to 10 percent of the total number of traps with each 
transfer, permanently removing them from the fishery.
    NMFS collects annual application forms from lobster permit holders 
who wish to buy and/or sell Area 2, 3, or Outer Cape Area trap 
allocation through the Trap Transfer Program. The transfer applications 
are only accepted during a 2-month period (from August 1 through 
September 30) each year, and the revised allocations for each 
participating lobster permit resulting from the transfers become 
effective at the start of the following Federal lobster fishing year on 
May 1. Both the seller and buyer of the traps are required to sign the 
application form, which includes each permit holder's permit and vessel 
information, the number of traps sold, and the revised number of traps 
received by the buyer, inclusive of the amount removed according to the 
transfer tax. Both parties must sign the form as an agreement to the 
number of traps in the transfer. The parties must date the document and 
show that the transferring permit holder has sufficient allocation to 
transfer and the permit holder receiving the traps has sufficient room 
under any applicable trap cap. This information allows NMFS to process 
and track transfers of lobster trap allocations through the Trap 
Transfer Program, and better enables the monitoring and management of 
the American lobster fishery as a whole.

II. Method of Collection

    Applications for the Trap Transfer Program are accepted annually 
from August 1 through September 30 by mail, fax, or email.
