Specified Fishing Agreements for U.S. Territorial Catch, Effort, and Allocation Limits

OMB 0648-0689

OMB 0648-0689

The governments of American Samoa, Guam, or Northern Mariana Islands may enter into specified fishing agreements with owners of U.S. pelagic longline fishing vessels, or their designated representative, to attribute longline fishing catch or effort to a U.S. participating territory. The proposed collection of information covers the preparation and submission of fishing agreement documents. The specified fishing agreements will identify the fishing vessels to be covered. Fishing vessels must be registered to a valid pelagic fishing permit to be eligible. The agreement would also specify the annual assignment limit allocated to the vessel(s). The Western Pacific Fishery Management Council and the National Marine Fisheries Service would review specified fishing agreements submitted by the territorial governments. NMFS does not require a specific format for an agreement.
