Permit No. 1448 authorizes the permit holder to handle, measure, flipper tag, scan for Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags, biopsy sample and photograph a total of 1,500 loggerhead, 50 green, 250 leatherback and 50 hawksbill sea turtles and handle, measure, flipper tag, scan for PIT tags and photograph a total of 50 Kemp’s ridley sea turtles over the duration of the permit. Seventy-five of the loggerheads and 20 of the Kemp’s ridleys will also be dip-netted. This research is conducted on animals that have been already incidentally captured in commercial fisheries operating in state waters and the Exclusive Economic Zone in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean to determine the size and composition of populations of sea turtles found in the commercial fishing areas of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean and to establish individual identities of turtles. The permit holder requests additional authorization to biopsy sample any of PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the 50 Kemp’s ridley sea turtles for which the permit holder is already authorized to handle, measure, flipper tag, scan for PIT tags and photograph that are greater than 25 cm in total carapace length notch to tip). Tissue biopsies would be collected using the same protocol currently authorized by the existing permit. This data would help confirm observer identifications of sea turtles made by collaborating NOAA researchers. Dated: September 21, 2006. P.
