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.
    Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    Title: Reporting Requirements for Sea Otter Interactions with the 
Pacific Sardine Fishery; Coastal Pelagic Species (CPS) Fishery 
Management Plan (FMP).
    OMB Control Number: 0648-0566
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Request: Regular submission (Extension of a currently 
approved collection).
    Number of Respondents: 2
    Average Hours per Response: 15 minutes.
    Burden Hours: 1.
    Needs and Uses: Example: On May 30, 2007, the National Marine 
Fisheries Service (NMFS) published a final rule (72 FR 29891) 
implementing a requirement under the CPS FMP to report any interactions 
that may occur between a CPS vessel and/or fishing gear and sea otters.
    Specifically, these reporting requirements are:
    1. If a southern sea otter is entangled in a net, regardless of 
whether the animal is injured or killed, such an occurrence must be 
reported within 24 hours to the Regional Administrator, NMFS West Coast 
Region.
    2. While fishing for CPS, vessel operators must record all 
observations of otter interactions (defined as otters within encircled 
nets or coming into contact with nets or vessels, including but not 
limited to entanglement) with their purse seine net(s) or vessel(s). 
With the exception of an entanglement, which will be initially reported 
as described above, all other observations must be reported within 20 
days to the Regional Administrator.
    When contacting NMFS after an interaction, fishermen are required 
to provide information regarding the location, specifically latitude 
and longitude, of the interaction and a description of the interaction 
itself. Descriptive information of the interaction should include: 
Whether or not the otters were seen inside or outside the net; if 
inside the net, had the net been completely encircled; did contact 
occur with net or vessel; the number of otters present; duration of 
interaction; otter's behavior during interaction; and measures taken to 
avoid interaction.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory.
    This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov. 
Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections 
currently under review by OMB.
    Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information 
collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice 
to [email protected] or fax to (202) 395-5806.
