Meeting of the U.S. Naval Academy Board of Visitors, 68773 [2010-28270]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 9, 2010 / Notices wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES_PART 1 based on population trends of each stock and mortality and serious injury levels incidental to commercial fisheries that are below the stocks’ PBRs. Accordingly, given these factors and NMFS’ prioritization process, TRPs will be deferred under section 118 as other stocks have a higher priority for any available funding for establishing new TRPs. Mortality and serious injury of Steller sea lions, Eastern U.S. stock, and NEP fin whales incidental to commercial fisheries are at insignificant levels, approaching a zero mortality and serious injury rate (Allen and Angliss, 2010). MMPA section 118(b)(2) states that fisheries maintaining such mortality and serious injury levels are not required to further reduce their mortality and serious injury rates. Because the goals of TRPs are to reduce mortality and serious injury of marine mammals incidental to commercial fishing operations, no TRPs are required for either of these stocks. As noted in the summary above, all of the requirements to issue a permit to the following Federally-authorized and State-parallel Category II groundfish fisheries have been satisfied: the AK Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands flatfish trawl, AK Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands pollock trawl, AK Bering Sea sablefish pot, and AK Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands Pacific cod longline fisheries. Accordingly, NMFS proposes to issue a permit to participants in these Category II fisheries for the taking of CNP humpback whales, WNP humpback whales, NEP fin whales, North Pacific sperm whales, Steller sea lions (Western U.S. stock), and the Steller sea lions (Eastern U.S. stock) incidental to the fisheries’ operations. As noted under MMPA section 101(a)(5)(E)(ii), no permit is required for vessels in Category III fishery. For incidental taking of marine mammals to be authorized in Category III fisheries, any injuries or mortalities must be reported to NMFS. NMFS solicits public comments on the proposed permit and the preliminary determinations supporting the permit. References Allen, B.M., and R.P. Angliss (eds.). 2010.
