Download as PDF 37328 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 123 / Monday, June 27, 2011 / Notices above. The request should set forth the specific reasons why a hearing on this application would be appropriate. Kristy Beard or Amy Hapeman, (301)427–8401. The subject permit is requested under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 222–226). The applicant requests a five-year permit to conduct research on leatherback, loggerhead, green, hawksbill, olive ridley, and Kemp’s ridley sea turtles in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and their tributaries. The purpose of the research is to evaluate modifications to commercial fishing gear to mitigate sea turtle interactions and capture under two projects, Project A (Turtle Excluder Device Evaluations in Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Trawl Fisheries) and Project B (Modifications to Longline Fisheries Gear). These evaluations and subsequent gear modifications could help to reduce incidental turtle bycatch in the gear types studied and provide data to improve stock assessments, assess the impact of anthropogenic activities, and better manage and recover these species. Annual requested take numbers under Project A are: 225 loggerheads, 98 Kemp’s ridleys, 82 leatherbacks, 47 greens, 33 hawksbills, 33 olive ridleys, and 85 unidentified/ hybrid turtles. A subset of these animals would be captured during trawl research; the rest of the turtles would be captured within fisheries managed by another Federal authority. Annual requested take numbers under Project B are: 28 loggerheads, 3 Kemp’s ridleys, 30 leatherbacks, 4 greens, 4 hawksbills, 3 olive ridleys, and 3 unidentified/ hybrid turtles. All animals would be handled, measured, weighed, photographed, flipper tagged, passive integrated transponder tagged, skin biopsied, and released. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: June 21, 2011.
