Chris Avery, (202) 419–3474, cavery@, U.S. Global Change
Research Program.
: The U.S.
Global Change Research Program
(USGCRP) is mandated under the Global
Change Research Act (GCRA) of 1990 to
conduct a quadrennial National Climate
Assessment. The most recent was
completed in 2018 and delivered in two
volumes: The Climate Science Special
Report (
and Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in
the United States
In addition to these two volumes,
other recent assessments by the U.S.
Government will inform the Fifth
National Climate Assessment (NCA5),
including the Second State of the
Carbon Cycle Report
(; the
Impacts of Climate Change on Human
Health in the United States
(; and
Climate Change, Global Food Security,
and the U.S. Food System (https://
environment/food-security) As with all
previous USGCRP assessments, NCA5
development will be transparent and
inclusive, offering opportunities for
public participation throughout the
process. The production and review
processes are designed to result in a
report that is authoritative, timely,
relevant, and policy neutral; valued by
authors and users; accessible to the
widest possible audience; and fully
compliant with the GCRA.
Background information, additional
details, and instructions for submitting

The U.S. Global Change Research
Program seeks public comment on the
Annotated Outlines of each chapter of
the Fifth National Climate Assessment
(NCA5), in particular on the scope and
framing of chapter’s proposed topic
areas. Input received on proposed
themes within each chapter’s Annotated
Outline will be used by chapter author
teams to develop their draft chapters.
Authors of each chapter of NCA5 will
develop chapter content structured
around the topic areas proposed in the
Annotated Outlines, highlighting the
risk climate change poses to the things
Americans value. All chapters are
charged with focusing on scientific
advancements since the last assessment
was released in 2018. Because Chapter
1 is an overview summary of the final
report, there is no Annotated Outline for
Chapter 1 at this time.
Response to this Request for Comment
is voluntary. Respondents need not
reply to all questions or topics.
Responses may be used by the U.S.
Government for program planning on a
non-attribution basis. NOAA therefore
requests that no business proprietary

Government will not pay for response
preparation, or for the use of any

I. Abstract
Marine recreational anglers are
surveyed to collect catch and effort data,
fish biology data, and angler
socioeconomic characteristics. These
data are required to carry out provisions
of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery
Conservation and Management Act (16
U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), as amended,
regarding conservation and management
of fishery resources.
Marine recreational fishing catch and
effort data are collected through a
combination of mail surveys, telephone
surveys and on-site intercept surveys
with recreational anglers. The Marine
Recreational Information Program
(MRIP) Fishing Effort Survey (FES) is a
self-administered, household mail
survey that samples from a residential
address frame to collect data on the
number of recreational anglers and the
number of recreational fishing trips. The
survey estimates marine recreational
fishing activity for all coastal states from
Maine through Mississippi, as well as
Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
FES estimates are combined with
estimates derived from complementary
surveys of fishing trips, the Access-
Point Angler Intercept Survey, to
estimate total, state-level fishing catch,
by species. These estimates are used in
the development, implementation, and
monitoring of fishery management
programs by NOAA Fisheries, regional
fishery management councils, interstate
marine fisheries commissions, and state
fishery agencies.
The proposed collection will include
experimental work to evaluate non-
sampling errors in recreational fishing
surveys. Specifically, the revision will
include three mail survey
questionnaires designed to evaluate
measurement error in the reporting of
saltwater fishing effort and possession
of a saltwater fishing license.
II. Method of Collection
Information will be collected through
self-administered mail surveys.
