The SERO Permits Office proposes to extend and to revise parts of the current collections-of-information approved under OMB Control Number 0648–0205. The NMFS Southeast Region manages the U.S. Federal fisheries in the Caribbean, Gulf, and South Atlantic under the fishery management plans (FMPs) for each region.

The regulations implementing the FMPs, including those that have recordkeeping and reporting requirements, are located at 50 CFR part 622. The recordkeeping and reporting requirements at 50 CFR part 622 form the basis for this collection of information. The NMFS Southeast Region requests information from fishery participants. This information, upon receipt, results in an increasingly more efficient and accurate database for management and monitoring of the Federal fisheries in the Caribbean, Gulf, and South Atlantic. The SERO Permits Office proposes to extend and to revise the collection-ofinformation approved under OMB Control Number 0648–0205. NMFS proposes to revise the Federal permit applications for Vessels Fishing in the EEZ (Vessel EEZ), Change of Information Form, Vessel Fishing in the Colombian Treaty Waters, Duplicate Federal Fishery Permits, Operator Card or Decal, Aquacultured Live Rock (new permit), Aquacultured Live Rock (permit renewal), Harvest of Aquacultured Live Rock in the EEZ, Southeast Region Issued Operator Card, Consolidate Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish permits, Vessels Fishing for Wreckfish in the South Atlantic States (Wreckfish), and the Annual Dealer permit. The proposed revisions to the specified application forms are administrative and would update outdated URLs, telephone numbers, and office hours. NMFS estimates that the proposed revisions would not change the annual number of respondents or responses, or annual costs to affected permit applicants from estimates in the currently approved collection. Across the application forms, NMFS estimates these revisions would not increase the overall time burden. The SERO Permits Office also proposes to modify the limited access permits by updating the form field name related to the selling price of the permit, along with removing the section related to the permit’s selling price. NMFS does not anticipate these revisions will materially change the time burden to the applicants. The SERO Permits Office also proposes to modify the Vessel EEZ application to include a checkbox and language related to the compliance of regulatory requirements. NMFS does not anticipate these revisions to the form will materially change the time burden to the applicants.

ACTION: Notice of a correction of a public meeting. AGENCY: The meeting for the SEDAR 68 Data Plenary Webinar II for Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic scamp grouper has been revised.

The webinar is open to members of the public. Those interested in participating should contact Julie A. Neer at SEDAR (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT) to request an invitation providing webinar access information. Please request DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29933 webinar invitations at least 24 hours in advance of each webinar.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The original meeting notice published in the Federal Register on May 7, 2020 (85 FR 27210). The webinar was originally scheduled from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. It will now be held from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. This change is a result of the pandemic impacts to the stock assessment schedule in the southeast region. The Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) has determined it will halt further work on SEDAR 68 after this webinar. As such there is a need to bring existing work to a logical stopping point so extra time is needed on this webinar. 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 multistep process including: (1) Data/ Assessment Workshop, and (2) a series of webinars. The product of the Data/ Assessment Workshop is a report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses, and describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, HMS 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 NGO’s; International experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The items of discussion in the Data Webinars are as follows: 1. An assessment data set and associated documentation will be developed during the webinars. E:\FR\FM\19MYN1.SGM 19MYN1
