SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions, have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. SEDAR is a threestep process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process utilizing webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is a data report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:09 May 14, 2020 Jkt 250001 research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a Summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, Highly Migratory Species Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The items of discussion at the Assessment Webinar IV are as follows: • Finalize reference case model run(s) which are robust to the major uncertainties identified in commercial bycatch discard estimation (and postrelease mortality) as well as the major uncertainties identified in the indices of abundance. Discuss sensitivity analyses, model diagnostic methodology and preliminary results for the reference case model run(s). Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency.

The IFQ programs for red snapper, and groupers and tilefishes occur in Federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf), and the ITQ program for wreckfish occurs in Federal waters of the South Atlantic. The NMFS Southeast Regional Office proposes to revise parts of the information collection approved under OMB Control Number 0648–0551. This collection of information tracks the transfer and use of IFQ and ITQ shares, and IFQ allocation and landings necessary to operate, administer, and review management of the IFQ and ITQ programs. Regulations for the IFQ and ITQ programs are located at 50 CFR part 622. For the Gulf IFQ Programs, the revisions would modify pages within the Catch Share Online System. The Transfer Shares page allows IFQ shareholders to transfer shares online to other IFQ shareholders. Similarly, the Transfer Allocation page allows IFQ shareholders to transfer allocation online to other IFQ shareholders. Beginning in 2020, IFQ shareholders can use IFQ shares as collateral in the Federal Fisheries Finance Program to obtain a loan that can be used for fishing related expenses. However, to accommodate the finance program, the Transfer Shares and Transfer Allocation pages must be modified to allow IFQ shareholders to indicate if their shares are being held as part of a lien. The Landing Transaction page allows IFQ dealers to submit landing transactions online to record landings of IFQ species. NMFS would revise the Landing Transaction page to allow for better data collection and monitoring of landings in conjunction with the NMFS Southeast Fisheries Science Center. If implemented by NMFS, these administrative revisions would not change the estimated time or cost per response. NMFS estimates that it would still require approximately 3 minutes to complete the Transfer Shares or Transfer Allocation pages per occurrence, and 6 minutes to complete the Landing Transaction page per occurrence.

Southeast Region under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery 
Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1801 
et seq. The IFQ programs for red snapper, and groupers and tilefishes 
occur in Federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf), and the ITQ 
program for wreckfish occurs in Federal waters of the South Atlantic.
    The NMFS Southeast Regional Office proposes to revise parts of the 
information collection approved under OMB Control Number 0648-0551. 
This collection of information tracks the transfer and use of IFQ and 
ITQ shares, and IFQ allocation and landings necessary to operate, 
administer, and review management of the IFQ and ITQ programs. 
Regulations for the IFQ and ITQ programs are located at 50 CFR part 
622.
    For the Gulf IFQ Programs, the revisions would modify pages within 
the Catch Share Online System. The Transfer Shares page allows IFQ 
shareholders to transfer shares online to other IFQ shareholders. 
Similarly, the Transfer Allocation page allows IFQ shareholders to 
transfer allocation online to other IFQ shareholders. Beginning in 
2020, IFQ shareholders can use IFQ shares as collateral in the Federal 
Fisheries Finance Program to obtain a loan that can be used for fishing 
related expenses. However, to accommodate the finance program, the 
Transfer Shares and Transfer Allocation pages must be modified to allow 
IFQ shareholders to indicate if their shares are being held as part of 
a lien. The Landing Transaction page allows IFQ dealers to submit 
landing transactions online to record landings of IFQ species. NMFS 
would revise the Landing Transaction page to allow for better data 
collection and monitoring of landings in conjunction with the NMFS 
Southeast Fisheries Science Center.
    If implemented by NMFS, these administrative revisions would not 
change the estimated time or cost per response. NMFS estimates that it 
would still require approximately 3 minutes to complete the Transfer 
Shares or Transfer Allocation pages per occurrence, and 6 minutes to 
complete the Landing Transaction page per occurrence.
