(1) Eligible activities. An LOA may be issued by the RA, or the RA’s designee, to temporarily exempt a vessel, on which a qualified fishery research technician is collecting catch data, from the following types of fishery regulations: Minimum fish size restrictions; fish possession limits; species quota closures; prohibited fish species, not including species protected under the Endangered Species Act; and gear-specific fish possession restrictions. (2) Eligibility criteria. Only personnel from the following bodies are eligible for a temporary possession LOA: Foreign government agency; U.S. Government agency; U.S. state or territorial agency; university (or other educational institution accredited by a recognized national or international accreditation body); international treaty organization; or scientific institution. (3) Application requirements. To obtain a temporary possession LOA, an eligible applicant, as defined under paragraph (d)(2) of this section, is required to submit a complete application, which must contain the following information: The date of the application; the applicant’s name, mailing address, and telephone number; a statement of the purposes and goals for which the LOA is needed; the name(s) and affiliation of the fishery research technicians will collect the data; a statement demonstrating the qualifications of the research technician pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES * VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:10 Jan 07, 2010 Jkt 220001 that will collect the data; the species (target and incidental) expected to be harvested under the LOA; the proposed disposition of all regulated species harvested under the LOA; the approximate time(s) and place(s) fishing will take place; the type, size, and amount of gear to be used; and the signature of the applicant.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The final rule published on December 10, 2009, and effective January 11, 2010 (74 FR 65480), revised annual interaction limits for sea turtles, among other actions. The amendatory instructions that are the subject of this correction refer to § 665.33 in Title 50 of the CFR. In the amendatory instructions in the published final rule (74 FR 65480), instruction 7 revised 50 CFR 665.33(b), relating to the annual limits on sea turtle interactions. The instruction inadvertently omitted paragraph designation ‘‘(b)(1)’’ relating specifically to the interaction limits. Because of the error, paragraph (b)(2), relating to the process for closing the fishery if a sea turtle interaction limit is reached, would be inadvertently deleted when this rule is made effective on January 11, 2010, if not corrected. This correction makes one change to the amendatory instructions to accurately reflect effective CFR parts as of January 11, 2010. In the amendatory instruction for § 665.33, the phrase, ’’...and revise paragraphs (b) and (f) to read as follows:’’, is revised to read ’’...and revise paragraphs (b)(1) and (f) to read as follows:’’. Correction Accordingly, in the final rule (FR Doc. No. E9-29444) published on December 10, 2009 (74 FR 65480), on page 65480, column 1, amendatory instruction number 7 is revised to read as follows: § 665.33 [Amended] 7. In § 665.33, remove and reserve paragraphs (a), (c), and (e), and revise paragraphs (b)(1) and (f) to read as follows: Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: January 5, 2010. James W.

SUMMARY: This document contains a correction to the final regulations 
that were published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2009, and 
are effective January 11, 2010. This change ensures that the process is 
preserved for closing the Hawaii-based shallow-set longline fishery as 
a result of the fishery reaching interaction limits for sea turtles.

DATES: Effective January 11, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Adam Bailey, NMFS Pacific Islands 
Region, 808-944-2248.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The final rule published on December 10, 
2009, and effective January 11, 2010 (74 FR 65480), revised annual 
interaction limits for sea turtles, among other actions.
    The amendatory instructions that are the subject of this correction 
refer to Sec.  665.33 in Title 50 of the CFR. In the amendatory

revised 50 CFR 665.33(b), relating to the annual limits on sea turtle 
interactions. The instruction inadvertently omitted paragraph 
designation ``(b)(1)'' relating specifically to the interaction limits. 
Because of the error, paragraph (b)(2), relating to the process for 
closing the fishery if a sea turtle interaction limit is reached, would 
be inadvertently deleted when this rule is made effective on January 
11, 2010, if not corrected.
    This correction makes one change to the amendatory instructions to 
accurately reflect effective CFR parts as of January 11, 2010. In the 
amendatory instruction for Sec.  665.33, the phrase, ''...and revise 
paragraphs (b) and (f) to read as follows:'', is revised to read 
''...and revise paragraphs (b)(1) and (f) to read as follows:''.

instruction number 7 is revised to read as follows:
Sec.  665.33 [Amended]
    7. In Sec.  665.33, remove and reserve paragraphs (a), (c), and 
(e), and revise paragraphs (b)(1) and (f) to read as follows:
