Pacific Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 21003 [E6-6046]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 78 / Monday, April 24, 2006 / Notices 21003 Preliminary Conclusions DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE A determination of negligible impact is required for NMFS to authorize incidental take of marine mammals. By regulation, an activity has a ‘‘negligible impact’’ on a species or stock when it is determined that the total taking is not likely to reduce annual rates of adult survival or recruitment (i.e., offspring survival, birth rates). Based on each species’ life history information, the expected behavioral patterns of the animals in the RIMPAC locations, the duration of the activity, the anticipated implementation of the required mitigation and monitoring measures, and an analysis of the behavioral disturbance levels in comparison to the overall populations, an analysis of the potential impacts of the Proposed Action on species recruitment or survival support the conclusion that proposed RIMPAC ASW training events would have no more than a negligible impact on the affected species or stocks. NMFS has also determined that the issuance of the IHA would not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the affected species or stocks for subsistence use. Additionally, NMFS has set forth in this proposed IHA the permissible methods of taking and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of such takings.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Proposed Authorization NMFS proposes to issue an IHA to the Navy for conducting ASW exercises, using tactical mid-frequency sonar in the OpArea, provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements are incorporated. NMFS has preliminarily determined that the proposed activity would result in only the harassment of marine mammals; would have no more than a negligible impact on the affected marine mammal stocks; and would not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of species or stocks for subsistence uses.
