The applicant is seeking a five-year scientific research permit to characterize habitat use, relative abundance, reproduction, juvenile recruitment, temporal and spatial distributions, and reproductive health of the shortnose sturgeon population in the Delaware River and Estuary. The proposed permit requests annual authorization for nonlethal sampling methods on up to 1,000 adult and juvenile shortnose sturgeon. Research activities would include: capturing via gill net, trammel net, and trawl net; measuring and weighing; tagging with PIT and Floy T-bar tags; and sampling tissue for genetic analysis. A subset of 30 adults and 30 juveniles would be tagged with acoustic transmitters. Another subset of 24 adults would be examined internally using laparoscopic techniques and each would also have gonad biopsy and blood samples taken for analyses. Additionally, lethal takes of up to 500 eggs and larvae each year would be collected during seasonal spawning activity by artificial substrate, D-frame ichthyoplankton net, and/or epibenthic sled. Finally, one unintentional mortality or serious injury is requested annually. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: November 13, 2009. P.
