Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 21 / Tuesday, February 2, 2010 / Notices included time and area closures to protect gag, the use of gear that does not target gag, and changes in gag size and bag limits. Data collection and monitoring of the recreational fishery could be improved in terms of both accuracy and timeliness to enhance management of the recreational sector and application of AMs. The Council is evaluating methods such as fish tags or a fish stamp, and several proposals have been directed toward the Council to improve the monitoring and management of the recreational fishery. These recommendations could improve the quality and timeliness of information needed to assess the different reef fish fisheries. NMFS, in collaboration with the Council, will develop a DEIS to describe and analyze management alternatives to address the management needs described above. Those alternatives include, but are not limited to, a ‘‘no action’’ alternative regarding each action; alternatives to end overfishing of gag and rebuild the stock to its MSY level; alternatives to adjust gag and red grouper ACLs, ACTs, management measures, and AMs; alternatives to consider recreational sector separation; alternatives to revise how multi-use IFQ shares are allocated; alternatives to reduce gag bycatch; and alternatives to improve data collection and monitoring of the recreational sector. In accordance with NOAA’s Administrative Order 216–6, Section 5.02(c), Scoping Process, NMFS, in collaboration with the Council, has identified preliminary environmental issues as a means to initiate discussion for scoping purposes only. These preliminary issues may not represent the full range of issues that eventually will be evaluated in the DEIS. Copies of an information packet will be available from NMFS (see ADDRESSES). After the DEIS associated with Amendment 32 is completed, it will be filed with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA will publish a notice of availability of the DEIS for public comment in the Federal Register. The DEIS will have a 45-day comment period. This procedure is pursuant to regulations issued by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA; 40 CFR parts 1500–1508) and to NOAA’s Administrative Order 216–6 regarding NOAA’s compliance with NEPA and the CEQ regulations. NMFS will consider public comments received on the DEIS in developing the final environmental impact statement VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:52 Feb 01, 2010 Jkt 220001 (FEIS) and before adopting final management measures for the amendment. NMFS will submit both the final amendment and the supporting FEIS to the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) for review as per the Magnuson-Stevens Act. NMFS will announce, through a notice published in the Federal Register, the availability of the final amendment for public review during the Department of Commerce Secretarial review period. During Secretarial review, NMFS will also file the FEIS with the EPA and the EPA will publish a notice of availability for the FEIS in the Federal Register. This comment period will be concurrent with the Secretarial review period and will end prior to final agency action to approve, disapprove, or partially approve the amendment. NMFS will announce, through a notice published in the Federal Register, all public comment periods on the final amendment, its proposed implementing regulations, and the availability of its associated FEIS. NMFS will consider all public comments received during the Secretarial review period, whether they are on the final amendment, the proposed regulations, or the FEIS, prior to final agency action.
