The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS or NOAA Fisheries) is requesting revisions to a currently approved information collection, which will allow NMFS to continue to collect information required to conduct the mandated economic and socio-economic evaluations of catastrophic regional fishery disasters (see SEC. 315 (c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA)). Since 1995, the Secretary of Commerce has made 100 fishery disaster determinations, of which 12 were the result of hurricanes or other severe weather events. The proposed revisions would make the following changes to the information collection: 1. Expand it to explicitly include a broader range of catastrophic events and all the coastal states and territories of the United States; 2. NMFS, in consultation with OMB, decided to develop survey instruments for fishing operations and fishing related businesses that it could use both for regional surveys, such as for a hurricane, and for national surveys, such as for the COVID-19 pandemic. NMFS intends to produce the survey instrument for a specific catastrophic event, by eliminating the questions that are not relevant for that event. For example, the questions about the physical damages to vessels, gear, facilities, and infrastructure would not be included in a national survey for COVID-19. In addition, NMFS determined that due to the similarities between the previous long-term and rapid assessment survey, it made sense to develop a survey instrument that it could use for either by again deleting the questions that are not relevant for a specific collection. 3. Change the title from “Assessment of the Social And Economic Impact of Hurricanes and Other Climate Related Natural Disasters On Commercial And Recreational Fishing Industries In The Eastern, Gulf Coast And Caribbean Territories of the United States” to “Data Collections to Support Comprehensive Economic and Socio-Economic Evaluations of the Fisheries in Regions of the United States Affected by Catastrophic Events”; and 4. Extend the collection for an additional three years.

A collection of information for national surveys was added accounting for a program change of 6,948 additional responses and 2,316 additional burden hours. the effects of increasing the burden hours per response and expanding the collection to include more types of catastrophic events and all coastal states and U.S. territories were more than offset by large decreases in the estimated numbers of respondents and response. Two things contributed to those decreases. First, we used data on recent collections instead of the more speculative projections used previously. That included using the response rates from recent collections as opposed to the higher response rate projections used previously. The reduction in the response rate was greater for other fishing related businesses; therefore, the percentage decreases in the numbers of respondents and responses were greater for that sector. Second and based on the recent collection, we decreased the scope of the other fishing related business by excluding marinas, boat repair yards and marine supply businesses.
