Change request pursuant to RIN 0648-BK76. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Alaska Region, requests to change this information collection due to the associated rule (RIN 0648-BK76) to remove pot gear tag requirements in the sablefish Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) fishery in the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) and remove requirements to obtain and submit a notary certification on application forms submitted under the halibut and sablefish IFQ Program, Charter Halibut Limited Access Program, Community Quota Entity (CQE) Program, License Limitation Program (LLP), and the Crab Rationalization Program. This action removes recordkeeping and reporting requirements that are no longer necessary and is intended to reduce administrative burden on the regulated fishing industry and NMFS. NMFS proposes to remove the notary certification from one form in this collection. OMB/OIRA has authorized this change request.
