File No. 15112: The purpose of the research is to determine the size and composition of populations of sea turtles found in the commercial fishing areas of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. The research would contribute to the understanding of the pelagic ecology of these species and allow more reliable assessments of commercial fishery impacts. Annually up to 130 loggerhead, 70 Kemp’s ridley, 50 green, 10 hawksbill, and 50 leatherback sea turtles caught in commercial fisheries would be measured, flipper tagged, tissue sampled, and released. The permit would be issued for five years. File No. 13307–02: Dr. Hart is authorized to capture up to 30 green, 20 hawksbill, and 20 loggerhead sea turtles annually. Turtles may be weighed, measured, flipper tagged, PIT tagged, SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 blood sampled, tissue sampled, fecal sampled, and lavaged. A subset of turtles may be tagged with a satellite tag or acoustic transmitter or a combination of both. This research addresses finescale temporal and spatial patterns of sea turtle habitat use, ecology, and genetic origin within the Dry Tortugas National Park. Dr. Hart proposes to increase the number of green sea turtles that she captures to 80 per year due to the high rate of recent capture success. The modification would be valid until the permit expires on June 30, 2013. Dated: March 29, 2010. P. Michael Payne, Chief, Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.
