One of the goals of the MMPA is to ensure that stocks of marine mammals occurring in waters under the jurisdiction of the United States do not experience a level of human-caused mortality and serious injury that is likely to cause the stock to be reduced below its optimum sustainable population level (OSP). OSP is defined as ‘‘the number of animals which will result in the maximum productivity of the population or the species, keeping in mind the carrying capacity of the habitat and the health of the ecosystem of which they form a constituent element.’’ To help accomplish the goal of maintaining marine mammal stocks at their OSPs, section 117 of the MMPA SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1
