ACTION: Notice; receipt of applications. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54369 NMFS.Pr1Comments@noaa.gov. Include the appropriate document identifier in the subject line of the e-mail comment: File No. 1070–1783 or 1075–1788. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tammy Adams, Shane Guan, or Ruth Johnson, (301)713–2289. The subject permits are requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) and the Regulations Governing the Taking and Importing of Marine Mammals (50 CFR part 216). File No. 1070–1783: The applicant requests a five-year permit to study temporal and spatial variation in numbers and diet composition of harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) in southern Padilla Bay, Washington to determine responses of harbor seals to changes in prey density and the impact of seal behavior on marine protected areas. Fecal samples would be collected from rookeries and haul-out sites for dietary analyses and seals would be counted during aerial and vessel surveys. The applicant requests to harass seals from the Washington Inland Waters Stock during the study. The estimated minimum number of harbor seals in this stock is 12,844 seals. File No. 1075–1788: The applicant requests a two-year permit to characterize the ontogenetic changes in skeletal muscle physiology in newly weaned, subadult, and adult Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) in the Antarctic and determine the molecular controls that regulate these changes. The applicant proposes to capture 15 adult, 15 juvenile, and 10 weaned pups annually to collect small muscle biopsy samples from the swimming muscles to identify the proteins and transcription factors that regulate the changes in myoglobin concentration, fiber type distribution and aerobic capacity. These results are expected to increase understanding of the ontogeny and molecular mechanisms by which young seals acquire the physiological adaptations necessary to become competent divers and marine predators. The applicant also requests authorization for the research-related mortality of up to two seals per year if complications should arise during sedation and handling. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of these applications to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.

locations, sites, species and habitat to be affected, possible 
construction activities, and any environmental concerns that may exist 
(e.g., the use and disposal of hazardous or toxic chemicals,

systems). In addition to providing specific information that will serve 
as the basis for any required impact analyses, applicants may also be 
requested to assist NOAA in drafting of an environmental assessment, if 
NOAA determines an assessment is required. Applicants will also be
