Permit Application Received Elise Kelley has applied for a scientific research permit to conduct a study with the Southern California Coast Distinct Population Segment of endangered steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in the Santa Ynez River and Santa Clara River systems respectively located in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties in southern California. The purpose of this study is to assess steelhead smolt residence time in the Santa Clara River and Santa Ynez River estuaries, assess steelhead smolt survival in the estuaries using acoustic tags, and assess adult steelhead return and straying rates in southern California by placing Passive Integrated E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 232 / Monday, December 4, 2006 / Notices Transponder (PIT) tags in steelhead smolts. This study will be conducted during 3 years with sufficient flows and number of smolts. Due to the patterns of dry and wet years for this region it may take as many as 10 years to get the desired 3 years of data. Therefore, the duration of coverage requested by this permit covers about a 10-year period from January 2006 through July 2015.
