SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Marine Fisheries Services (NMFS) is responsible for the management, conservation, and protection of living marine resources within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone. The SWFSC in La Jolla, California, manages and conducts research involving Pacific fisheries and marine mammal research for the protection and management of these resources throughout Western Pacific and Antarctica. The existing SWFSC facility, built in 1964, is currently adjacent to a coastal bluff that is undergoing severe erosion and retreat. NOAA proposes to construct a new SWFSC building to replace its existing NMFS administrative and marine research facilities currently located in La Jolla, California. A minimum of two existing at-risk SWFSC structures would be removed and the property currently used by NOAA would be returned to UCSD for other appropriate uses. NOAA is the lead Federal agency for implementation of the NEPA. The University of California is the lead agency under the CEQA. The existing and preferred sites for the SWFSC headquarters are at the UCSD campus. The NMFS, SIO and other marine research organizations conduct independent and joint research at the SWFSC and its salt water laboratory facilities. The proposed action would require construction of a new facility to support SWFSC administrative and marine research operations. The preferred site will enable NMFS, SIO, and others to continue collaboration within a wide range of programmatic marine research disciplines. Alternative actions analyzed in the Final EIS/EIR include: • Bluff stabilization • On-site redevelopment • On- and near-site redevelopment • Off-site development at SIO Deep Sea Drilling Site • Off-site development at UCSD Hillside Neighborhood Site PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23683 • Leased office and research space • Collocation of SWFSC with other existing NOAA facilities • No Action This joint Final EIS/EIR analyzes environmental impacts that may result from implementation of the proposed and alternative actions and identifies measures to avoid or reduce the intensity of environmental impacts.

SUMMARY: In accordance with provisions of the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), NOAA announces the availability of the joint 
Final EIS/EIR analyzing the environmental impacts of replacing the 
Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC). This Final EIS/EIR is 
prepared pursuant to NEPA to assess the environmental impacts of 
replacing the existing SWFSC buildings with a new facility located on 
campus of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) within the 
University of California at San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Marine Fisheries Services 
(NMFS) is responsible for the management, conservation, and protection 
of living marine resources within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone. The 
SWFSC in La Jolla, California, manages and conducts research involving 
Pacific fisheries and marine mammal research for the protection and 
management of these resources throughout Western Pacific and 
Antarctica. The existing SWFSC facility, built in 1964, is currently 
adjacent to a coastal bluff that is undergoing severe erosion and 
retreat. NOAA proposes to construct a new SWFSC building to replace its 
existing NMFS administrative and marine research facilities currently 
located in La Jolla, California. A minimum of two existing at-risk 
SWFSC structures would be removed and the property currently used by 
NOAA would be returned to UCSD for other appropriate uses.
    NOAA is the lead Federal agency for implementation of the NEPA. The 
University of California is the lead agency under the CEQA. The 
existing and preferred sites for the SWFSC headquarters are at the UCSD 
campus. The NMFS, SIO and other marine research organizations conduct 
independent and joint research at the SWFSC and its salt water 
laboratory facilities.
    The proposed action would require construction of a new facility to 
support SWFSC administrative and marine research operations. The 
preferred site will enable NMFS, SIO, and others to continue 
collaboration within a wide range of programmatic marine research 
disciplines.
    Alternative actions analyzed in the Final EIS/EIR include:
     Bluff stabilization
     On-site redevelopment
     On- and near-site redevelopment
     Off-site development at SIO Deep Sea Drilling Site
     Off-site development at UCSD Hillside Neighborhood Site
     Leased office and research space
     Collocation of SWFSC with other existing NOAA facilities
     No Action
    This joint Final EIS/EIR analyzes environmental impacts that may 
result from implementation of the proposed and alternative actions and 
identifies measures to avoid or reduce the intensity of environmental 
impacts.

Decision Process

    The government decision as to how to proceed will be announced in a 
Record of Decision (ROD) to be issued no earlier than 30 days after 
publication of this NOA.
