The holding of such a hearing is at the discretion of the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA. Application Received Permit 1515 Water Works Consulting (WWC) is requesting a 2–year research permit to annually capture, handle, and release juvenile UWR chinook salmon. The research would take place in an artificial side-channel to the Willamette River, Oregon. The purposes of the research are to determine how such side-channels function compared to natural, river-created ones and whether the side-channel provides habitat for native fishes. The WWC intends to determine juvenile fish presence and abundance in the spring and late summer of 2005 and 2006. The research would benefit listed chinook by determining how effectively such sidechannels help restore salmon habitat. The WWC proposes to capture the fish using seines and boat electrofishing equipment. Captured fish would be identified, counted, checked for tags and marks, and released. The WWC does not intend to kill any of the fish being captured, but a small number may die as an unintended result of the activities. This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the application, associated documents, and comments submitted to determine whether the application meets the requirements of section 10(a) of the ESA and Federal regulations.
