SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 19, 2005 notice was published in the Federal Register (70 FR 60796) that a request for a scientific research permit to take green, loggerhead, Kemp’s ridley, hawksbill, leatherback, olive ridley, and unidentified hardshell sea turtles had been submitted by the above-named organization. The requested permit has been issued under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). The SEFSC will handle, measure, weigh, photograph, flipper tag, passive integrated transponder tag, skin biopsy, and release green, loggerhead, Kemp’s ridley, hawksbill, leatherback, olive ridley, and unidentified hardshell (combination of green, loggerhead, Kemp’s ridley, hawksbill, olive ridley, or hybrids that would not be able to be identified at the time of capture) sea turtles. In addition, a limited number of turtle carcasses (including tissues or parts from them) will be collected annually from the fisheries or activities for which incidental lethal take has been previously authorized. The applicant will sample turtles captured incidentally during other activities including the shark gillnet fishery, longline fisheries, the shrimp trawl fishery, and surveys during oil/gas platform removal. The capture will be authorized by the incidental take statements of the biological opinions or section 10(a)(1)(B) permits that cover these activities. The research will provide data on the turtles that interact with these activities and provide data useful to better understanding turtle migration, habitat use, genetics, and population dynamics. The information will be used to develop, implement, and evaluate conservation recovery efforts for sea turtles. The research will take place in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and their tributaries. The permit is issued for 5 years. Issuance of this permit, as required by the ESA, was based on a finding that VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:52 Apr 05, 2006 Jkt 208001 such permit (1) Was applied for in good faith, (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of any endangered or threatened species, and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA. •Executive Director’s Report •ICAAT Presentation •Models for Ecosystem Based Management Approach - Monica Valle •Revised Regulations SFA, PR, USVI Dated: March 31, 2006.
