SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The applicant requests a five year research permit to take California sea lions (CSL; Zalophus californianus) to study the disease ecology of Leptospira in the pinniped populations along the west coast of the United States. Up to 460 non-pup CSL may be captured and sampled annually at several sites in California, Oregon, and Washington. During capture animals may be restrained and receive anesthesia, biological sampling (blood, urine, feces, vibrissae, hair and nail clip, and mucus membrane swabs), length and weight measurements, and external tags. An additional 60 non-target CSL, including large pups, may be incidentally captured and restrained to determine age and sex, but would be released without sampling. If opportunistically encountered during sampling, up to 30 entangled CSL may be captured for disentanglement, and up 100 dead stranded CSL may be necropsied, annually. Up to 8 CSL may be taken by unintentional mortality during the requested five year permit. An additional 20,000 CSL, 5,000 Northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris), 500 Northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus), 100 harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), and 50 non-listed Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus) may be disturbed incidentally to capture activities. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement.
