Type of Request: Regular submission [extension of a current information collection]. Number of Respondents: 480. Average Hours per Response: 10 minutes per trip survey. Total Annual Burden Hours: 80 hours. Needs and Uses: The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) collects information about fishing trip expenses in the American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) small-boat-based reef fish, bottomfish, and pelagics fisheries with which to conduct analyses on economic performance of fisheries that will improve fishery management in those fisheries; satisfy NMFS’ legal VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:31 Aug 21, 2020 Jkt 250001 mandates under Executive Order 12866, the Magnuson-Steven Fishery Conservation and Management Act (U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act; and quantify achievement of the performances measures in the NMFS Strategic Operating Plans. An example of these performance measures is the fishing cost trend as one of the economic performance indicators reported in Annual Stock Assessment and Fishery Evaluation Reports of each Fishery Ecosystem Plan (http:// www.wpcouncil.org/annual-reports/). In addition, the economic data collected will allow quantitative assessment of the fisheries sector’s social and economic contribution, linkages and impacts of the fisheries sector to the overall economy through Input-output (I–O) models analyses. Results from I– O analyses will not only provide indicators of social-economic benefits of the marine ecosystem, a performance measure in the NMFS Strategic Operating Plans, but also be used to assess how fishermen and economy will be impacted by and respond to regulations likely to be considered by fishery managers. These data are collected in conjunction with catch and effort data already being collected in this fishery as part of its creel survey program. The creel survey program implemented by local fishery management agents is one of the major data collection systems to monitor fisheries resources in these three geographic areas. Interviews are conducted with returning fishermen at the most active launching ramps/docks during selected time periods on the islands. The economic surveys on trip expenditure are incorporated into the creel survey for the three areas, respectively. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov.
