A sixyear denial of MUTCO’s export privileges is warranted because MUTCO’s violations, like those of the respondents in the above-cited case, involved exports made to Terrorist Supporting Countries in violation of U.S. export control laws. The terms of the denial of export privileges against MUTCO should be consistent with the standard language used by BIS in such orders. The language is: [REDACTED SECTION] This Order, which constitutes the final agency action in this matter, is effective upon publication in the Federal Register. Accordingly, the undersigned refers this Recommended Decision and Order to the Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security for review and final action for the agency, without further notice to the respondent, as provided in § 766.7 of the Regulations. Within 30 days after receipt of this Recommended Decision and Order, the Under Secretary shall issue a written order affirming, modifying, or vacating the Recommended Decision and Order.

All three applicants are all seeking permits to conduct hearing measurements on either permanently captive marine mammals, or those that are stranded, entrapped, or in a rehabilitation center. Marine mammals use sound for communication in a number of behaviors critical to survival and reproduction. Results of this work would increase our knowledge of the abilities of marine mammals to perceive natural sounds and variations in those sounds, and improve our understanding of how anthropogenic sounds affect them in order to facilitate their conservation. These types of recordings are routinely used to measure the hearing of other animals, including human infants, and do not represent a risk to the marine mammals.

ACTION: Notice; issuance of permit. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that NMFS, Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC), 75 Virginia Beach Drive, Miami, Florida 33149 has been issued a permit to take smalltooth sawfish (Pristis pectinata) for purposes of scientific research. ADDRESSES: The permit and related documents are available for review upon written request or by appointment in the following office(s): Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, 1315 East–West Highway, Room 13705, Silver Spring, MD 20910; phone (301)713–2289; fax (301)427–2521; and Southeast Region, NMFS, 263 13th Ave South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701; phone (727)824–5312; fax (727)824– 5309. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patrick Opay or Jennifer Skidmore, (301)713–2289. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 10, 2005, notice was published in the Federal Register (70 FR 46492) that a request for a scientific research permit to take smalltooth sawfish 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). Researchers will annually capture up to 5 smalltooth sawfish using bottom longline gear. Animals will be sexed, measured, biopsy sampled, photographed, external dart tagged, and tagged with a pop–up satellite archival tag. The research will provide information on the survival rates of smalltooth sawfish captured and released from commercial fishing gear; habitat for adult sawfish; and daily and seasonal movement patterns and migration corridors that could aid management efforts in reducing further fishery interactions. The research will be concentrated in areas offshore of the Marquesas Keys, Florida Keys, and PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38137 south of the Florida Keys in the Florida straights outside of Florida state waters. The permit is issued for 5 years. 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 any endangered or threatened species, and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.
