Review Process and Evaluation Criteria Proposals will be evaluated by the Brennan Matching Fund Program Management Team. Submissions will be ranked based on the following criteria: 1. Project justification (30 points)— This criterion ascertains whether there is intrinsic IOCM value in the proposed work and/or relevance to NOAA missions and priorities, including downstream partner proposals and uses. Use of, and reference to, national priorities on climate and infrastructure, NOMEC, ACMS and the Coast Survey Ocean Mapping Plan (all available at https://iocm.noaa.gov/about/strategicplans.html); gap assessment tools such as the U.S. Bathymetry Gap Analysis (https://iocm.noaa.gov/seabed-2030bathymetry.html); and the U.S. Interagency Elevation Inventory (https:// catalog.data.gov/dataset/united-statesinteragency-elevation-inventory-usiei), among others, are recommended. Coast Survey’s Hydrographic Health Model showing priority survey areas for navigation safety is available upon request. The U.S. Federal Mapping Coordination site shows current Coast Survey and NGS mapping plans (fedmap.seasketch.org); email iwgocm.staff@noaa.gov for assistance with the layers on this site if needed. 2. Statement of need (10 points)— This criterion assesses clarity of project need, partner project funding alternatives if not selected, anticipated outcomes and public benefit. 3. Specified partner match (20 points)—The proposal identifies a point of contact for the entity submitting the proposal, as well as any partnering entities, a clear statement on partner matching funds provenance (e.g., state appropriations, NGO funds, or other sources), and timing of funds availability. In-kind contributions are welcome to strengthen the proposal, but do not count toward the funding match and are not required. 4. Project costs (15 points)—This criterion evaluates whether the proposed budget is realistic and commensurate with the proposed project needs and timeframe. If needed, please contact iwgocm.staff@noaa.gov for a rough estimate of cost per square nautical mile for surveys in a particular region; this figure will not be exact, as actual cost will be negotiated by region and scale of project. 5. Project feasibility and flexibility (25 points)—This criterion assesses the likelihood that the proposal would succeed based on survey conditions at the proposed time of year, such as VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Jul 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 project size, location, weather, NOAA analysis of environmental compliance implications, project flexibility and adaptability to existing NOAA plans and schedules, and other factors. During the proposal review period, NOAA reserves the right to engage with proposal points of contact to ask questions and provide feedback on project costs and feasibility. Management and Oversight Once selections are made, NOAA will coordinate the development of the memoranda of agreement, funding transfers, project planning, environmental compliance, acquisition awards and quality assurance process. NOAA may bring in additional partners and/or funding (Federal and/or nonFederal) to expand a project further if feasible. Projects will be reviewed by NOAA on an annual basis to ensure they are responsive to partner interests and NOAA mission requirements, and to identify opportunities for outreach and education on the societal benefits of the work.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for an extension and revision of a current information collection. Participants in most federally managed fisheries in the NMFS Southeast Region are currently required to keep and submit catch and effort logbooks from their fishing trips. A subset of fishermen on these vessels also provides information on the species and quantities of fish, shellfish, marine turtles, and marine mammals that are caught and discarded or have interacted with the fishing gear. A subset of fishermen on these vessels also provides information about dockside prices, trip operating costs, and annual fixed costs. An intercept survey for vessels with Federal charter vessel/headboat permits is designed to support and validate the electronic logbooks. The data are used for scientific analyses that support critical conservation and management decisions made by national and international fishery management organizations. Interaction reports are needed for fishery management planning and to help protect endangered species and marine mammals. Price and cost data will be used in analyses of the economic effects of proposed and existing regulations. Regulatory Amendment 29 effective July 15, 2020 would require at least one descending device to be on board and ready for use on commercial, for-hire, and private recreational vessels while fishing for or possessing snappergrouper species in the South Atlantic. E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for an extension and revision of a current 
information collection.
    Participants in most federally managed fisheries in the NMFS 
Southeast Region are currently required to keep and submit catch and 
effort logbooks from their fishing trips. A subset of fishermen on 
these vessels also provides information on the species and quantities 
of fish, shellfish, marine turtles, and marine mammals that are caught 
and discarded or have interacted with the fishing gear. A subset of 
fishermen on these vessels also provides information about dockside 
prices, trip operating costs, and annual fixed costs. An intercept 
survey for vessels with Federal charter vessel/headboat permits is 
designed to support and validate the electronic logbooks.
    The data are used for scientific analyses that support critical 
conservation and management decisions made by national and 
international fishery management organizations. Interaction reports are 
needed for fishery management planning and to help protect endangered 
species and marine mammals. Price and cost data will be used in 
analyses of the economic effects of proposed and existing regulations.
    Regulatory Amendment 29 effective July 15, 2020 would require at 
least one descending device to be on board and ready for use on 
commercial, for-hire, and private recreational vessels while fishing 
for or possessing snapper-grouper species in the South Atlantic.

[[Page 40201]]

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.

II. Method of Collection

    The information is submitted on paper forms and electronic 
transmissions. The intercept survey is collected through in-person 
interviews at verified landing locations.
