The subject amendment is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216). Permit No. 358–1787, issued on March 10, 2006 (71 FR 14503; March 22, 2006), authorizes the permit holder to conduct surveys of, capture of, tissue sampling of, and attachment of tags and scientific instruments to harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), spotted seals (P. largha), ringed seals (P. hispida), ribbon seals (P. fasciata), and bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus) in Alaska. The purpose of the permitted research is to allow studies to describe the ecology and behavior of these pinnipeds in Alaska. The permit was modified on June 12, 2006, by minor amendment (Permit No. 358–1787–01) to extend the expiration date to December 31, 2011, and adjust the annual reporting period to accommodate the timing of field seasons. A second minor amendment (Permit No. 358–1787–02) was issued on April 4, 2008, to include within the existing allowance for incidental harassment ‘‘planned vessel approaches’’ of harbor seals that have been instrumented with heart-rate monitors and time-depth recorders. That minor amendment did not result in takes of more harbor seals than were already permitted; and the objective was to examine the potential effects of vessel traffic on the metabolic rate and energetic budgets of harbor seals. The permit holder now requests to increase the number of ringed, bearded, spotted, and ribbon seals that may be captured, from 50 per year to 100 per year, to allow for selection of animals of specific age, sex, and molt condition. For these four species, the holder also requests to include permission to (1) administer diazepam as needed to sedate seals acting aggressively, (2) pull a whisker for stable isotope analyses of diet; and (3) include using a dip net from a boat as an additional capture method. The amendment would be valid for the duration of the permit, which expires on December 31, 2011. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE VerDate Nov<24>2008 specific reasons why a hearing on this application would be appropriate.
