Endangered and Threatened Species; Take of Anadromous Fish, 33243 [2010-14078]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 112 / Friday, June 11, 2010 / Notices implementation of the ISFMP. On May 25, 2010, the Commission notified the Secretary that North Carolina had taken corrective action to comply with the management measures in the ISFMP, and the Commission now finds North Carolina in compliance with the Weakfish ISFMP. NMFS reviewed the ISFMP and North Carolina’s recently approved weakfish management measures and agrees with the Commission that North Carolina’s newly enacted measures comply with the requirements of the Weakfish ISFMP. Therefore, NMFS determines that North Carolina is now carrying out its responsibilities under the Commission’s Weakfish ISFMP and that the state is in compliance. With such a determination, NMFS’ statutory responsibilities in this matter are discharged, the basis for further proceedings no longer exists, and the matter is concluded.

Permit 14268 authorizes TRPA to conduct a scientific study with endangered Southern California (SC) Distinct Population Segment (DPS) steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in the Ventura River. The purpose of this study is to use monitoring and sampling methods to gather information that will contribute to the understanding of abundance and distribution of juvenile steelhead in various portions of the Ventura River watershed. Information obtained by this study is anticipated to help support restoration efforts for the endangered SC DPS of steelhead. Permit 14268 authorizes the use of direct underwater observation techniques and electrofishing under certain specified instances as methods to assist in estimating abundance and distribution of steelhead. Electrofishing will be conducted only by qualified individuals and according to NMFS’ electrofishing guidelines.

No intentional lethal take has been authorized for this permit. The authorized unintentional lethal take (mortalities) that may occur during PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33243 research activities is up to 30 juvenile steelhead per year. All mortalities will be sent to NMFS Protected Resource Division in Long Beach, CA for genetic research and processing.

Following the Preliminary Results, we provided interested parties with an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. Our analysis of the comments submitted and information received after the Preliminary Results did not lead to any changes in the net countervailable subsidy rate. Therefore, the final results do not differ from the Preliminary Results. The final net countervailable subsidy rate for Alpanil Industries, Ltd.
