Jkt 253001 Title: Infectious Salmon Anemia; Payment of Indemnity. OMB Control Number: 0579–0192. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is authorized, among other things, to prevent the interstate spread of serious diseases and pests of livestock within the United States when feasible. In connection with this mission, APHIS established regulations in 9 CFR part 53 to pay indemnity to salmon producers in Maine whose fish are destroyed because of infectious salmon anemia (ISA). However, payment is subject to the availability of funding. ISA is a foreign animal disease of Atlantic salmon that is caused by an orthomyxovirus. The disease affects wild and farmed Atlantic salmon. ISA poses a substantial threat to the economic viability and sustainability of salmon aquaculture in the United States. To take part in the indemnity program, producers must enroll in the cooperative ISA control program administered by APHIS and the State of Maine. Program participants must also inform the ISA Program Veterinarian in writing of the name of their accredited veterinarian, develop biosecurity PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 protocols and a site-specific ISA action plan, submit fish inventory and mortality information, complete an appraisal and indemnity claim form, complete a proceeds from animals sold for slaughter form, and assist APHIS or State officials with onsite disease surveillance, testing, and biosecurity audits. Program participants, who may include certain aquaculture industry business owners, managers, site employees, accredited veterinarians, and designated laboratories, must also assist APHIS with certain disease surveillance activities. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2.8 hours per response. Respondents: ISA program participants such as certain aquaculture industry business owners, managers, site employees, accredited veterinarians, and laboratory personnel; exporters; and foreign animal health authorities from exporting countries. Estimated annual number of respondents: 13. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 15. Estimated annual number of responses: 191. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 549 hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Infectious Salmon Anemia; Payment of Indemnity.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0192.
    Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an 
information collection.
    Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et 
seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture is authorized, among other things, to 
prevent the interstate spread of serious diseases and pests of 
livestock within the United States when feasible. In connection with 
this mission, APHIS established regulations in 9 CFR part 53 to pay 
indemnity to salmon producers in Maine whose fish are destroyed because 
of infectious salmon anemia (ISA). However, payment is subject to the 
availability of funding. ISA is a foreign animal disease of Atlantic 
salmon that is caused by an orthomyxovirus. The disease affects wild 
and farmed Atlantic salmon. ISA poses a substantial threat to the 
economic viability and sustainability of salmon aquaculture in the 
United States.
    To take part in the indemnity program, producers must enroll in the 
cooperative ISA control program administered by APHIS and the State of 
Maine. Program participants must also inform the ISA Program 
Veterinarian in writing of the name of their accredited veterinarian, 
develop biosecurity protocols and a site-specific ISA action plan, 
submit fish inventory and mortality information, complete an appraisal 
and indemnity claim form, complete a proceeds from animals sold for 
slaughter form, and assist APHIS or State officials with onsite disease 
surveillance, testing, and biosecurity audits. Program participants, 
who may include certain aquaculture industry business owners, managers, 
site employees, accredited veterinarians, and designated laboratories, 
must also assist APHIS with certain disease surveillance activities.
    We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve 
our use of these information collection activities, as described, for 
an additional 3 years.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public 
(as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. 
These comments will help us:
    (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, 
electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., 
permitting electronic submission of responses.
    Estimate of burden: The public burden for this collection of 
information is estimated to average 2.8 hours per response.
    Respondents: ISA program participants such as certain aquaculture 
industry business owners, managers, site employees, accredited 
veterinarians, and laboratory personnel; exporters; and foreign animal 
health authorities from exporting countries.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 13.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 15.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 191.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 549 hours. (Due to 
averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of 
the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per 
response.)

request
