The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) requests the approval of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for an extension of the existing collection of information under OMB Control Number 0648-0373 for Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Vessel and Gear Marking. Regulations at 50 CFR part 635.6 require that vessels for which a permit has been issued under section 635.4, other than an HMS Angling permit, must display the vessel’s official U.S. Coast Guard or state registration number. Vessels using handline, buoy gear, harpoon, longline, or gillnet gear, must also display the vessel’s name, registration number, or HMS permit number on each float or highflier attached to the gear.

  Total Request Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 11,367 10,300 0 0 1,067 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 4,950 3,894 0 0 1,056 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 513,810 344,610 0 0 169,200 0
Burden hours and cost estimates have been adjusted to reflect current numbers vessels in Atlantic HMS fisheries. Labor costs were not included in previous authorizations, but have been added for this renewal. Material costs were also adjusted as previous authorizations only estimated material costs on a per vessel basis, while this authorization re-estimated material costs on a per mark, or response, basis.
