The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Alaska Region invites comments from the general public and specifically from owners and operators of catcher vessels and catcher/processors regarding the economic burden associated with VMS requirements in the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and Aleutian Islands fisheries. VMS requirements may be reviewed at § 679.28(f). The Federal Office of Management and Budget requested that NMFS conduct this review of existing VMS regulatory requirements by the Alaska fishing industry as part of renewal conditions for the VMS collection of information, OMB No. 0648-0445.
