Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request, 45019-45020 [E7-15583]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 154 / Friday, August 10, 2007 / Notices whales due to data limitations and our inability to develop density estimates. Regardless, given the infrequent occurrence of these species (or none at all), NMFS believes that any take would be significantly lower than those of beluga whales. While behavioral modifications, including temporarily vacating the area during the project period may be made by these species to avoid the resultant visual and acoustic disturbance, NMFS nonetheless finds that this action would result in no more than a negligible impact on these marine mammal species and/or stocks. NMFS also finds that the proposed action will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of such species or stocks for taking for subsistence uses. In addition, no take by Level A harassment (injury) or death is anticipated or authorized, and harassment takes should be at the lowest level practicable due to incorporation of the mitigation measures described in this document. Proposed Authorization NMFS proposes to modify the UOCC IHA to allow its seismic operations in Upper Cook Inlet between September and November, 2007, and to issue an IHA to MOC for the potential harassment of Cook Inlet beluga whales, Pacific harbor seals, harbor porpoises, Steller sea lions, and killer whales incidental to conducting seismic operations in Cook Inlet in Alaska, provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements are incorporated.
