Determination to Conduct Restoration Planning Under 15 CFR 990.42, the Federal and State natural resource trustees have determined to conduct restoration planning under OPA and its implementing regulations, finding: a. Based on data collected and analyzed under 15 CFR 990.43, injuries to natural resources and services have resulted or are likely to result from the Incident, including, but not necessarily limited to, injuries to waterfowl, seabirds, intertidal biota, marine mammals, terrestrial vegetation, subtidal resources, fish and shellfish and associated cultural uses. b. Response actions have not adequately addressed the injuries resulting from the Incident. Response efforts included, but were not limited to, attempting to boom sensitive fish streams; removing oil from the wreck; removing dead bird and sea otter carcasses; capturing, cleaning and rehabilitating live oiled birds; temporarily closing fisheries; sampling marine waters that might affect ongoing fisheries; recovering stranded oil on shorelines; performing manual and mechanical cleanup operations; and testing fish and invertebrates used for commercial and subsistence purposes. While these actions may have reduced the number and magnitude of future injuries, they did not adequately address the mortality and possible sublethal effects to natural resources and services injured from the Incident. Further, cleanup activities likely caused additional injuries to certain natural resources, including, but not necessarily limited to, terrestrial vegetation and intertidal biota. c. Feasible primary and/or compensatory restoration actions exist to address injuries from the Incident. Feasible restoration actions relevant to the injuries may include, but are not limited to: (1) Waste oil recovery at Dutch Harbor/Unalaska to restore sea ducks, marine mammals, intertidal and subtidal biota, fish and shellfish and human uses of those resources; (2) Removal of introduced terrestrial invasive species, such as rats or fox, that VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:49 Mar 29, 2007 Jkt 211001 prey on or compete with marine birds on certain islands of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge to restore marine birds and their habitat; (3) Debris removal on Unalaska Island or elsewhere in the Aleutians to restore habitat for intertidal biota and marine mammals; (4) Habitat protection in the nesting areas of waterfowl injured by the spill; (5) Salmon restoration in Unalaska (sockeye) or Summers Bay (coho) lakes; and (6) Education and outreach on Unalaska Island related to subsistence and cultural resources. Data supporting these determinations are contained in the Administrative Record established for this case (see below). Based upon the foregoing determinations, the Trustees have determined to conduct restoration planning for the Incident. Opportunity To Comment Under 15 CFR 990.14(d), the Trustees will seek public involvement in restoration planning for this Incident through, at minimum, public review of and comment on the Draft Restoration Plan.

Administrative Record The Trustees have opened an Administrative Record (Record) in compliance with 15 CFR 990.45. The Record will include documents relied upon by the Trustees during the natural resource damage assessment performed in connection with this Incident. The Record is on file at the FWS Alaska Regional Office (see ADDRESSES). To review the Record, contact Jenifer Kohout (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT).
