This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection.
Under the authority of the Fish and Seafood Promotion Act of 1986, information collected under this program is used to promote domestically-produced fish products. The information collection requirements can be broadly divided into two categories: (1) Information required of an individual or organization applying for consideration to form a seafood promotion council, and (2) the information required of a formed and operating council, or permitted for its participants. Information required of an individual or organization applying for consideration to form a council consists of an “application for charter” composed of three subparts: petition, proposed charter, and a list of eligible referendum participants. The information required of a formed and operating council, or permitted for its participants, is as follows: council submission of an annual plan, an annual budget, and an annual financial report; council submissions of semiannual progress reports; notice of assessments once a year; list of council nominations following a favorable referendum once a year; and meeting notices once a year.
