Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 141 / Tuesday, July 27, 2021 / Notices Most recently the Descend Act was passed, which added a new section 321 to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. This requires commercial and recreational fishermen to possess a venting tool or descending device that is rigged and ready for use when fishing for reef fish in the Gulf Exclusive Economic Zone. Descending devices increase survivability from barotrauma, which is injury caused by internal gas expansion when reeled up from depth. In addition to being asked to report the number of fish released respondents would be asked to report the number of fish released with descending devices as part of their current logbook submissions. The purpose of asking respondents to distinguish between fish releases without descending devices and fish released with descending devices is to provide data needed by NMFS to accurately account for fishing mortality when performing stock assessments. NMFS seeks to revise this collection to add an additional question to the recreational Headboat part of the collection to make it more consistent with the data collected through the commercial discard logbook. The new column (#DESCENDED) will be added to the (#KEPT) and (#RELEASED) columns that are currently on the form. This will provide fishermen an opportunity to report which unwanted fish will be released to the bottom of the ocean, providing them a better chance at survival. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 II.
