The applicant is seeking a five year permit to assess biological and life history information on shortnose sturgeon in the Potomac River. Primary objectives of the study would be: (1) capturing and tracking acoustically tagged sturgeon to determine seasonal movements, habitat selection, spawning success and spawning periodicity; and (2) characterizing the genetics of Potomac River shortnose sturgeon. To accomplish these goals, up to 30 fish annually would be non-lethally sampled with gill nets, measured, weighed, PIT and Floy tagged, and tissue sampled. Of these, up to 10 adult shortnose sturgeon each year would be acoustically tagged five internally and five externally and released. Additionally, researchers propose to use D-nets to collect up to 20 shortnose sturgeon in early life stages annually to estimate spawning success and periodicity. erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: March 15, 2010.

Permit No. 87–1743–05, issued on September 29, 2009 (74 FR 52184), authorizes the permit holder to conduct long-term behavioral, physiological, and life history research studies on northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) in California. The permit expires on September 30, 2010. The permit holder is requesting an amendment to increase the number of weaned elephant seal pups weighed, measured, and flipper tagged by 100 animals in order to study the effects of a current El Nino event on weaned pup size and survival. The amendment would be valid for the duration of the permit. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), a supplemental environmental assessment (SEA) was prepared to analyze the effects of issuing Permit No. 87–1743–05, and a finding of no significant impact was signed on September 30, 2009. Based on the analysis in the SEA, NMFS has determined that issuance of Permit No. 87–1743–06 would not significantly impact the quality of the human environment and that preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of this application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.
