The information requested will be used in support of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) issuing Scientific Research Permits, Exempted Fishing Permits, Letters of Acknowledgment Display Permits, and Shark Research Fishery Permits regarding highly migratory species (HMS). This information will also enhance and facilitate NMFS' compliance and enforcement capabilities regarding HMS scientific research, industry related research, and exempted fishing activities. All information regarding mortality will be used in future stock assessments.

Adjustments: The previous calculation for unduplicated respondents did not take into account vessels requiring gear marking, but not vessel marking, under this OMB Control No.(that is, for some of the vessels whose gear requires marking, the vessel marking itself is covered under other fisheries' vessel marking information collections). In this request, rather than the unduplicated respondents equaling the vessels requiring marking, the additional vessels requiring ONLY gear marking were added. The hours and costs have been adjusted to reflect current activity in the various fisheries, as well as increased cost for marking materials. Net increases: 2,051 unduplicated respondents (8,937, up from 6,886), 1,034 responses (15,077, up from 14,043), 981 hours (7,936, up from 6,955). Although the estimated cost per vessel marking and per vessel for its gear marking is now $24, there is an overall decrease in cost due to an apparent error in the last submission, in which the cost per vessel's gear being marked was multiplied by each gear marking, yielding a much higher cost. Net decrease in cost: $65,504: 220,536, down from $286,040).
