Start Preamble

AGENCY:

National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

NMFS reorganizes existing fishery regulations by creating a new part for western Pacific regulations. This rule organizes the regulations into a logical and cohesive order; it does not make substantive changes to existing fishery regulations. This rule also amends references to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) information collection requirements to reflect the reorganization. The purpose of this rule is to make the regulations better organized and easier for the public to use.

DATES:

Effective April 10, 2006.

Background

In 1996, NMFS published a final rule (61 FR 34570, July 2, 1996) that consolidated six parts of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) into one new CFR part (50 CFR part 660). Among the actions in that rule was consolidation of regulations that implemented fishery conservation and management measures for fisheries operating in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the west coast and in the western Pacific. The 1996 action reorganized the rules into a more logical and cohesive order, removed duplicative and outdated provisions, and made editorial changes for readability, clarity and uniformity in the regulatory language. The current action makes the regulations even better organized, and easier for the public to use.

Since the 1996 reorganization, there have been significant changes in the fisheries managed under 50 CFR part 660 and in the associated fishery regulations. New subparts have been added that cover west coast highly migratory species fisheries and western Pacific coral reef fisheries. Subparts that apply specifically to fisheries in the western Pacific are currently intermingled with subparts that apply to fisheries off the west coast, and several subparts have been changed substantially.

In 2004, NMFS established a new Pacific Islands Region and Pacific Start Printed Page 17986Islands Regional Office with responsibility for administering NMFS conservation and management programs in the western Pacific. Those responsibilities are no longer in the purview of the NMFS Southwest Region. Thus, the realignment of regulations for fisheries in the western Pacific is consistent with the new regional office that is responsible for their administration.

In addition to the above reasons for regulatory reorganization, the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council is in the process of creating fishery ecosystem plans that will apply ecosystem management principles to fisheries, consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Those plans will shift management from a fishery or species basis (e.g., pelagic species, crustaceans, etc.) to one based on geographical areas (e.g., American Samoa, Hawaii, etc.). The move to ecosystems management will require reorganization of the regulations for western Pacific fisheries into geographic areas; such a reorganization will be facilitated by the current action.

Reorganization of Regulations for the Western Pacific

This action redesignates those regulations in 50 CFR part 660 that cover fisheries in the western Pacific as regulations in a new 50 CFR part 665. Fisheries for pelagic species, crustaceans, bottomfish and seamount groundfish, precious corals and coral reef ecosystems in the western Pacific are managed by these regulations. After the reorganization, the regulations remaining in 50 CFR part 660 will include those fisheries that are managed by NMFS off the west coast. The restructuring allows interested fishermen, managers and the general public to readily access the regulations.

No substantive changes are being made to the regulations, but several administrative titles and telephone numbers are updated. In 50 CFR part 660, subpart A (general provisions) is not redesignated, but is edited to apply solely to west coast fisheries, and a new 50 CFR part 665, subpart A, is created for western Pacific fisheries.

Revisions to Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) References

Section 3507 of the PRA requires that agencies inventory and display a current control number assigned by the Director, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), for each agency information collection, and 15 CFR 902.1(b) identifies the location of NOAA regulations for which OMB approvals have been issued. Because this final rule codifies many recordkeeping and reporting requirements, 15 CFR 902.1(b) is revised to reference correctly the new sections resulting from the reorganization.

Classification

This action has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the PRA unless that collection displays a currently valid OMB control number.

The following collection of information requirements have already Start Printed Page 17988been approved by OMB for U.S. fishing activities:

1. Approved under 0648-0214. (1) Pacific Islands Region (PIR) logbook family of forms estimated at 5 minutes (min) per reporting action; and (2) pre-trip and post-landing notifications estimated at 5 min per reporting action; (3) experimental fishing reports estimated at 4 hours (hr) per reporting action; (4) sales and transshipment reports estimated at 5 min per reporting action; (5) report on gear left at sea estimated at 5 min per reporting action; (6) claims for reimbursement for lost fishing time estimated at 4 hr per claim; (7) request for pelagics area closure exemption estimated at 1 hr per request; and (8) observer placement meetings estimated at 1 hr per reporting action (§§ 665.14, 665.17, 665.23, 665.28, 665.43, 665.63, and 665.65).

2. Approved under 0648-0360. PIR gear identification estimated at 0.5 hr per reporting action (§§ 665.16, 665.24, 665.48, and 665.606).

3. Approved under 0648-0441. PIR vessel monitoring system, (1) installation, estimated at 4 hr per reporting action; (2) repair and maintenance, estimated at 2 hr per reporting action; and (3) hourly automated position reports, estimated at 24 sec per day (§ 665.25).

4. Approved under 0648-0456. PIR seabird interaction reporting, (1) at-sea notification, estimated at 1 hr per reporting action; (2) reporting on recovery data form, estimated at 1 hr per reporting action; and (3) specimen tagging, estimated at 0.5 hr per reporting action (§ 665.35).

5. Approved under 0648-0462. PIR coral reef logbook reporting, (1) at-sea notification, estimated at 3 min per reporting action; (2) logbook reporting, estimated at 0.5 hr per reporting action; and (3) transshipment reports, estimated at 15 min per reporting action (§ 665.604).

6. Approved under 0648-0463. PIR coral reef special permit, (1) application, estimated at 2 hr per application; and (2) special permit appeals, estimated at 3 hr per appeal (§ 665.602).

7. Approved under 0648-0490. (1) PIR permit family of forms estimated at 0.5 hr per permit action; (2) experimental fishing permits, estimated at 2 hr per application (§§ 665.13, 665.17, and 665.21(k)); and (3) appeals from permit actions estimated at 2 hr per permit appeal (§§ 665.13, 665.21(k), 665.27, 665.41, 665.61, and 665.81).

Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, (AA) finds good cause to waive prior notice and opportunity for public comment, as such notice and comment would be unnecessary. These procedures are unnecessary because no substantive changes are being made pursuant to this final rule. The only action currently being taken is to reorganize the western Pacific regulations into a new part, and to change the cross references to the previous part so as to reflect the reorganization. For the aforementioned reasons, the AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effectiveness of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3).
