Proposed Authorization NMFS proposes to renew an IHA to CALTRANS for the potential harassment of small numbers of harbor seals and California sea lions incidental to seismic retrofit construction of the Bridge, provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements are incorporated. NMFS has preliminarily determined that the proposed activity would result in the harassment of only small numbers of harbor seals and possibly California sea lions and will have no more than a negligible impact on these marine mammal stocks. Information Solicited NMFS requests interested persons to submit comments, information, and suggestions concerning this request (see ADDRESSES). Prior to submitting comments, NMFS recommends reviewers of this document read the responses to comments made previously (see 62 FR 67045, December 23, 1997; 65 FR 2375, January 14, 2000; 66 FR 49165, September 26, 2001; 67 FR 61323, September 30, 2002; and 68 FR 66076, 2003) for this action, as NMFS does not intend to address these issues further without the submission of additional scientific information.
