Download as PDF 27230 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 90 / Wednesday, May 10, 2006 / Notices Atlantic, from Florida to Delaware Bay. When located, right whales, humpback whales and Atlantic bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) will be approached for photo-identification and thermal imaging. Various other species of cetaceans may be incidentally harassed as a result of the surveys. The permit has been issued for a five-year period. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an environmental assessment was prepared analyzing the effects of the permitted activities. After a Finding of No Significant Impact, the determination was made that it was not necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement. Issuance of this permit, as required by the ESA, was based on a finding that such permit: (1) was applied for in good faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species; and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA. Dated: May 5, 2006. Stephen L. Leathery, Chief, Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc.

File No. 1574: Dr. Frank A. Chapman requests a 5–year permit to authorize the continued maintenance and scientific research of domestic stocks of shortnose sturgeon presently held at the University of Florida. The research would use captive shortnose sturgeon to meet the following objectives: (1) identify physical, chemical, and biological parameters required to maintain optimal survival and growth of larvae and juvenile shortnose sturgeon; (2) describe embryonic development and metamorphosis; (3) monitor gonadal development of domestically raised ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 shortnose sturgeon; (4) develop chemical assays to identify the sex and monitor the sexual development of shortnose sturgeon; and (5) understand the physiology of the sperm and egg to develop short and long-term storage of sperm as well as optimum fertilization techniques. This project would not require any takes from the wild or any release of domestic sturgeon into the wild. File No. 1575: Earth Tech Northeast, Inc. requests a 5–year permit to document the usage of the existing Tappan Zee Bridge piers by shortnose sturgeon. The objectives of this research would be to document: (1) the use of the existing Tappan Zee Bridge structure as significant habitat by fisheries resources; and (2) the relative abundance and spatial and temporal patterns of shortnose sturgeon, if these fish are present. The applicants propose to use anchored gill nets and traps to capture a maximum of 120 juvenile and adult shortnose sturgeon for visual examination, measurement, and release. The proposed research would occur at six stations alongside and under the existing Tappan Zee Bridge and at three reference locations within 700 feet north of the existing bridge. Dated: May 4, 2006.
