ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: NMFS issues this notice to notify the public that the United States has accepted conservation and management measures and resolutions pertaining to fishing in Antarctic waters managed by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (Commission or CCAMLR). The Commission adopted these measures at its twenty-fifth meeting in Hobart, Tasmania, October 23 to November 3, 2006. The measures have been agreed upon by the Member countries of CCAMLR, including the United States, in accordance with Article IX of the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (the Convention). The measures: include measures previously PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13089 adopted by the Commission and remaining in force; measures adopted for the 2006/2007 fishing season to restrict overall catches, research catch and bycatch of certain species of fish, krill and crab; limit participation in several exploratory fisheries; restrict fishing in certain areas and to certain gear types; and set forth: fishing seasons fishery-by-fishery, revisions to previously adopted measures; new measures, and new resolutions. The Commission also adopted a list of vessels suspected to be engaged in illegal, unregulated or unreported fishing in the Convention Area. ADDRESSES: Copies of the CCAMLR conservation and management measures may be obtained from the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, National Marine Fisheries Service, 1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robin Tuttle, 301–713–2282. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The full text of the conservation and management measures and resolutions agreed to by consensus by CCAMLR at its 2006 meeting were published by the U.S. Department of State in a formal notice in the Federal Register on January 29, 2007 (72 FR 4068). Public comments were invited on the notice; one comment was received. The commenter suggested that the use of gillnets and longlines be banned in the Convention Area. As indicated in the Department of State notice, CCAMLR has adopted an interim prohibition on the use of deep-sea gillnets. The prohibition will remain in force until the CCAMLR Scientific Committee has investigated and reported on the potential impacts of gillnets in the Convention Area. Regarding longline fishing, CCAMLR first adopted measures requiring fishers to employ techniques minimizing the incidental mortality of seabirds in the course of longline fishing in 1991. At its 2006 meeting, CCAMLR’s Ad Hoc Working Group on Incidental Mortality Associated with Fishing noted the resulting continuing low levels of incidental mortality of seabirds in regulated longline fisheries in most parts of the Convention Area. There were no reports of incidental mortality of marine mammals in longline gear in the 2005/2006 fishing season. Through this action, NMFS notifies the public that the United States has accepted the measures and resolutions adopted at CCAMLR’s twenty-fifth meeting. NMFS provides the following E:\FR\FM\20MRN1.SGM 20MRN1
