SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract This request is for extension of a current information collection. The success of fisheries management programs depends significantly on the availability of fishery data. Currently, the states of Washington, Oregon, and California administer a trawl logbook on behalf of the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) and NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The log used is a standard format developed by the Council to collect information necessary to effectively manage the fishery on a coast-wide basis. The trawl logbook collects haul-level effort data including tow time, tow location, depth of catch, net type, target strategy, and estimated pounds of fish retained per tow. Each trawl log represents a single fishing trip. The state of California repealed their requirement, effective April 1, 2019, therefore, NMFS created a federal requirement in order to not lose logbook coverage from trawl vessels in California. This federal requirement duplicates the logbook structure and process that the state of California was using in order to minimize disruption or confusion for fishery participants. Under this rule, PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NMFS contracts with the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) to distribute and collect the same logbook these fishermen were using previously. These data are used regularly by NMFS, the Pacific Fishery Management Council, the West Coast Groundfish Observer Program, NMFS Office of Law Enforcement, and the Coast Guard for fisheries management and enforcement. II. Method of Collection Vessels using trawl gear in a state without a state requirement for the completion and submission of the logbook are required to complete and submit a logbook on their haul-level effort to the PSMFC. This logbook is provided to these vessels by the PSMFC along with pre-addressed stamped envelopes to return the completed logbooks every month. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0782.

I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a current information collection.
    The success of fisheries management programs depends significantly 
on the availability of fishery data. Currently, the states of 
Washington, Oregon, and California administer a trawl logbook on behalf 
of the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) and NOAA's National 
Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The log used is a standard format 
developed by the Council to collect information necessary to 
effectively manage the fishery on a coast-wide basis. The trawl logbook 
collects haul-level effort data including tow time, tow location, depth 
of catch, net type, target strategy, and estimated pounds of fish 
retained per tow. Each trawl log represents a single fishing trip. The 
state of California repealed their requirement, effective April 1, 
2019, therefore, NMFS created a federal requirement in order to not 
lose logbook coverage from trawl vessels in California.
    This federal requirement duplicates the logbook structure and 
process that the state of California was using in order to minimize 
disruption or confusion for fishery participants. Under this rule, NMFS 
contracts with the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) 
to distribute and collect the same logbook these fishermen were using 
previously. These data are used regularly by NMFS, the Pacific Fishery 
Management Council, the West Coast Groundfish Observer Program, NMFS 
Office of Law Enforcement, and the Coast Guard for fisheries management 
and enforcement.

II. Method of Collection

    Vessels using trawl gear in a state without a state requirement for 
the completion and submission of the logbook are required to complete 
and submit a logbook on their haul-level effort to the PSMFC. This 
logbook is provided to these vessels by the PSMFC along with pre-
addressed stamped envelopes to return the completed logbooks every
