Start Preamble

The Department of Commerce has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Title: Southeast Region Dealer and Interview Family of Forms.

Form Number(s): None.

OMB Approval Number: 0648-0013.

Type of Request: Regular submission.

Burden Hours: 397.

Number of Respondents: 85.

Average Hours Per Response: 20 minutes.

Needs and Uses: NOAA proposes to add a reporting requirement to this family for forms. Fishery quotas are established for species in the deep-water and shallow-water management units within the Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Fishery Management Plan (50 CFR 622.42(a)(ii) and (iii)). Existing methods of monitoring these fishery quotas have proven to be ineffective, and for the past two years landings for the species in these management units have exceeded the quotas. The Southeast Fisheries Science Center intends to use the authority under section 50 CFR 622.5(c)(3)(ii) to require dealers to report purchases (landings) on a monthly basis and every two weeks for the last two months of the season (year).

Affected Public: Business and other for-profit organizations, individuals or households.

Frequency: Monthly, biweekly for last two months of year.

Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory.
