Background

    Section 9 of the ESA and Federal regulations prohibit the 
taking of a species listed as endangered or 
threatened. The term take is defined under the 
ESA to mean harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, 
capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. NMFS 
may issue permits to take listed species for any act otherwise 
prohibited by section 9 for scientific purposes or to enhance the 
propagation or survival of the affected species, under section 
10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA. NMFS regulations governing permits for 
threatened and endangered species are promulgated at 50 CFR 222.307.
    NMFS expects to take action on a ESA section 10(a)(1)(A) submittal 
received from the applicant. In an application received on July 11, 
2008, WDFW submitted an application to NMFS for an ESA section 
10(a)(1)(A) permit for the direct take of ESA-listed threatened Lower 
Columbia River Chinook salmon, Lower Columbia River Coho salmon, and 
Columbia River Chum salmon from the Grays River in Wahkiakum County, 
Washington. A temporary weir will be installed in the lower Grays River 
in order to complement existing adult salmonid monitoring efforts in 
the Grays River in developing accurate and precise estimates of total 
abundance, and to promote recovery of the Grays River fall Chinook 
salmon population through the removal of non-local hatchery Chinook 
salmon.
    This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS 
will evaluate the application, associated documents, and comments 
submitted thereon to determine whether the application meets the 
requirements of section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA. If it is determined 
that the requirements are met, a permit will be issued to the WDFW for 
the purpose of carrying out the research program. NMFS will publish a 
record of its final action in the Federal Register.
