When proposing regulations, NOAA Fisheries is required to analyze the economic effects of such regulations on small entities (e.g., businesses and non-profit organizations). As part of the required analyses, we must determine if permit applicants are large or small entities according to the standards established by the Small Business Administration and NOAA Fisheries. As a result, each entity is required to complete this form. If you have questions about affiliation and how it applies in your case, please call (727) 824-5305 and ask for one of our economists.
