U.S. Climate Change Science Program Draft Unified Synthesis Product: Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States, 75678 [E8-29495]

Download as PDF 75678 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 240 / Friday, December 12, 2008 / Notices March 2009. Fishing activity is currently taking place through December 2008 and researchers would like to continue in March 2009, but will need this revised exemption to do so. It is expected that this location, within the RCA, would provide access to large monkfish and would avoid gear interactions between the research gillnet gear and trawl gear. The need to switch RCA exemptions is due to the change in location and vessel from the original research proposal. Allowing an exemption in RCA I rather than RCA III will provide consistency with the rest of the research that is being conducted in that area and will avoid further delays in the project. The applicant may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the year. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further notice if they are deemed essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially approved EFP request. Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. AGENCY: Corporation for National and Community Service.
