This is a request for revision and extension of a currently-approved collection that intends to gather cultural, economic, and social information on small scale fishers operating in the United States Caribbean, which includes the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands Territory. In total, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) aims to survey 1,500 fishers. The data collected will be used to support current management actions by providing up-to-date socio-economic data, which will be used: a) to develop fishery management plans and amendments (e.g., human and economic environment descriptions, development of social indicators), and b) to conduct analyses of regulatory proposals (e.g., effect analyses). The revisions are primarily due to surveying and funding setbacks caused by the adverse impact of recent hurricanes and the COVID-19 pandemic as well as minor revisions to the attitudinal questions section.
