SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES Background On December 20, 2019, NMFS published a final rule in the Federal Register (84 FR 70040) under the Tuna Conventions Act of 1950, as amended, and the Marine Mammal Protection Act, as amended, to implement IMO requirements in IATTC Resolution C– 18–06 (Resolution (Amended) on a Regional Vessel Register) and amendments to existing regulations governing inclusion on the Vessel Register by purse seine vessels fishing in the EPO. That final rule became effective January 21, 2020, except for amendatory instructions that included new or revised information collections, which were delayed until publication of a document in the Federal Register announcing the effective date. A correcting amendment was published in the Federal Register (85 FR 8198) on February 13, 2020, to correct two information collection requirements in 50 CFR 300.22(b)(4)(ii)(A) and 50 CFR 300.22(b)(4)(iii)(B) allowing for the collection of a ‘‘business email address’’ that were included in the December 20, 2019, final rule and inadvertently set to become effective upon January 21, 2020, before being approved by OMB under the PRA and control number 0648– 0387. OMB has now approved these collection-of-information requirements under control number 0648–387. Accordingly, this final rule announces effectiveness of the collection-ofinformation requirements that were published in the December 20, 2019, final rule and corrects the regulatory text to impose the collection of information requirements revised in the February 13, 2020, correcting amendment. Classification This final rule has been determined to be not significant for the purposes of Executive Order 12866. This rule is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under Executive Order 12866. This final rule announces the date of effectiveness and corrects the regulatory VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:58 Jun 09, 2020 Jkt 250001 text to reflect new and revised collection-of-information requirements approved by OMB under PRA control number 0648–0387 that were published in the Federal Register (84 FR 70040) on December 20, 2019. Comments regarding the burden estimates, or any other aspects of the collection of information should be sent to the NMFS West Coast Region Long Beach Office (see ADDRESSES above), by email to OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov, or by fax to (202) 395–5806. Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. All currently approved NOAA collections of information may be viewed at: http://www.cio.noaa.gov/ services_programs/prasubs.html. The NOAA Assistant Administrator for Fisheries (AA) finds there is good cause to waive prior notice and opportunity for public comment for this action pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), because prior notice and opportunity for public comment on this final rule is unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. In part, this action simply provides notice of OMB’s approval of the reporting requirements at issue, which has already occurred, and renders those requirements effective. Thus, this part of this action does not involve any further exercise of agency discretion by NMFS or OMB. Moreover, the public has had prior notice and the opportunity to comment on the collection-of-information requirements. NMFS published a proposed rule including the collectionof-information requirements on April 16, 2019 (84 FR 15556), with comments accepted through May 16, 2019. NMFS received two comments on the collection-of-information requirements related to a proposed supplementation of a vessel departure notification and an ability to apply for associated permit applications online. The final rule published on December 20, 2019 (84 FR 70040), addressed these comments, keeping the proposed supplemental vessel departure notice in place for the reasons described there, while revising the purse seine vessel permit application collection-of-information requirements to allow for an online process. Both such processes were considered and approved under PRA control number 0648–0387. Additional opportunity for public comment at this PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 point would not be meaningful and would be duplicative. Any further delay to allow for public comment is therefore unnecessary and would result in public confusion. For the aforementioned reasons, the AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effectiveness of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). These measures are thus exempt from the procedures of the Regulatory Flexibility Act because prior notice and comment are not required under the APA.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for pollock by vessels using trawl gear in the Herring Savings Areas of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI). This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2020 herring jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:58 Jun 09, 2020 Jkt 250001 bycatch allowance specified for the midwater trawl pollock fishery in the BSAI. This action includes prohibiting directed fishing for pollock by vessels participating in the Community Development Quota Program. DATES: Effective 1200 hours, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), June 15, 2020, through 1200 hours, A.l.t., March 1, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Obren Davis, 907–586–7228. NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the BSAI exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. The 2020 herring bycatch allowance specified for the midwater trawl pollock fishery in the BSAI is 2,299 metric tons as established by the final 2020 and 2021 harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (85 FR 13553, March 9, 2020). The Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS, has determined that the 2020 herring bycatch allowance specified for the midwater trawl pollock fishery in the BSAI has been caught. Consequently, in accordance with § 679.21(e)(7)(vi), NMFS is closing directed fishing for pollock by vessels using trawl gear in the three Herring Savings Areas of the BSAI. The Summer Herring Savings Area 1 is that part of the Bering Sea subarea that is south of 57° North latitude and between 162° W longitude and 164° W longitude from 1200 hours, A.l.t., June 15, 2020 through 1200 hours, A.l.t., July 1, 2020. The Summer Herring Savings Area 2 is that part of the Bering Sea subarea that is south of 56°30″ North latitude and between 164° W longitude and 167° W longitude from 1200 hours, A.l.t., July 1, 2020 through 1200 hours A.l.t., August SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 35381 15, 2020. The Winter Herring Savings Area is that part of the Bering Sea subarea that is between of 58° and 60° North latitude and between 172° W longitude and 175° W longitude from 1200 hours, A.l.t., September 1, 2020 through 1200 hours, A.l.t., March 1, 2021. While this closure is effective the maximum retainable amounts at § 679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and would delay the closure of directed fishing for pollock by vessels using trawl gear in the Summer and Winter Herring Savings Areas of the BSAI. NMFS was unable to publish a notice providing time for public comment because the most recent, relevant data only became available as of June 3, 2020. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment. This action is required by § 679.21 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: June 5, 2020. He´le`ne M.N.

SUMMARY: NMFS announces approval by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) of collection-of-information requirements contained in 
regulations published in a final rule on December 20, 2019. The final 
rule implements International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirements 
in Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) Resolution C-18-06 
(Resolution (Amended) on a Regional Vessel Register) and amendments to 
existing regulations governing inclusion on the IATTC Regional Vessel 
Register (Vessel Register) by purse seine vessels fishing in the 
eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO). The intent of this final rule is to inform 
the public of the effectiveness of the collection-of-information 
requirements associated with the final rule. This final rule also 
corrects the regulatory text to implement two collection-of-information 
requirements that were included in the December 20, 2019, final rule 
and inadvertently set to become effective on January 21, 2020, before 
being approved by OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). Those 
two collection-of-information requirements were corrected in a 
correcting amendment in a final rule published on February 13, 2020 and 
are made effective in this final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On December 20, 2019, NMFS published a final rule in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 70040) under the Tuna Conventions Act of 1950, as 
amended, and the Marine Mammal Protection Act, as amended, to implement 
IMO requirements in IATTC Resolution C-18-06 (Resolution (Amended) on a 
Regional Vessel Register) and amendments to existing regulations 
governing inclusion on the Vessel Register by purse seine vessels 
fishing in the EPO. That final rule became effective January 21, 2020, 
except for amendatory instructions that included new or revised 
information collections, which were delayed until publication of a 
document in the Federal Register announcing the effective date. A 
correcting amendment was published in the Federal Register (85 FR 8198) 
on February 13, 2020, to correct two information collection 
requirements in 50 CFR 300.22(b)(4)(ii)(A) and 50 CFR 
300.22(b)(4)(iii)(B) allowing for the collection of a ``business email 
address'' that were included in the December 20, 2019, final rule and 
inadvertently set to become effective upon January 21, 2020, before 
being approved by OMB under the PRA and control number 0648-0387. OMB 
has now approved these collection-of-information requirements under 
control number 0648-387. Accordingly, this final rule announces 
effectiveness of the collection-of-information requirements that were 
published in the December 20, 2019, final rule and corrects the 
regulatory text to impose the collection of information requirements 
revised in the February 13, 2020, correcting amendment.

Classification

    This final rule has been determined to be not significant for the 
purposes of Executive Order 12866. This rule is not an Executive Order 
13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under 
Executive Order 12866.
    This final rule announces the date of effectiveness and corrects 
the regulatory text to reflect new and revised collection-of-
information requirements approved by OMB under PRA control number 0648-
0387 that were published in the Federal Register (84 FR 70040) on 
December 20, 2019. Comments regarding the burden estimates, or any 
other aspects of the collection of information should be sent to the 
NMFS West Coast Region Long Beach Office (see ADDRESSES above), by 
email to [email protected], or by fax to (202) 395-5806. 
Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is required 
to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure 
to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements 
of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays a currently 
valid OMB Control Number. All currently approved NOAA collections of 
information may be viewed at: http://www.cio.noaa.gov/services_programs/prasubs.html.
    The NOAA Assistant Administrator for Fisheries (AA) finds there is 
good cause to waive prior notice and opportunity for public comment for 
this action pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) of the Administrative 
Procedure Act (APA), because prior notice and opportunity for public 
comment on this final rule is unnecessary and contrary to the public 
interest. In part, this action simply provides notice of OMB's approval 
of the reporting requirements at issue, which has already occurred, and 
renders those requirements effective. Thus, this part of this action 
does not involve any further exercise of agency discretion by NMFS or 
OMB. Moreover, the public has had prior notice and the opportunity to 
comment on the collection-of-information requirements. NMFS published a 
proposed rule including the collection-of-information requirements on 
April 16, 2019 (84 FR 15556), with comments accepted through May 16, 
2019. NMFS received two comments on the collection-of-information 
requirements related to a proposed supplementation of a vessel 
departure notification and an ability to apply for associated permit 
applications online. The final rule published on December 20, 2019 (84 
FR 70040), addressed these comments, keeping the proposed supplemental 
vessel departure notice in place for the reasons described there, while 
revising the purse seine vessel permit application collection-of-
information requirements to allow for an online process. Both such 
processes were considered and approved under PRA control number 0648-
0387. Additional opportunity for public comment at this point would not 
be meaningful and would be duplicative. Any further delay to allow for 
public comment is therefore unnecessary and would result in public 
confusion.
    For the aforementioned reasons, the AA also finds good cause to 
waive the 30-day delay in the effectiveness of this action under 5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3).
    These measures are thus exempt from the procedures of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act because prior notice and comment are not 
required under the APA.
