Permits 15926 and 16083 have been issued 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 parts 222–226). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Permit 15926 was issued to UC Davis Department of Animal Science Genomic Variation Laboratory (UC Davis) on September 7, 2011, authorizing the transfer of ESA-listed tissue specimens from the California Department of Fish and Game Central Valley Salmonid Tissue Archive to UC Davis, for purposes of genetic investigation. The archived collection includes tissue specimens from endangered Sacramento River (SR) winter-run Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), threatened Central Valley (CV) springrun Chinook salmon (O. tshawytscha), and threatened California Central Valley (CCV) steelhead (O. mykiss). UC Davis will genotype the tissues, utilizing microsatellite and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) markers, to study genetic relationships associated with different geographic populations and identify potential salmonid sources for introduction into the San Joaquin River Restoration Program project area, below Friant Dam to the confluence of the Merced River, a tributary to the San Joaquin River, in the Central Valley, California. Permit 15926 will expire on October 31, 2016. Permit 16083 was issued to Natural Resource Scientists, Incorporated (NRSI) on June 27, 2011, authorizing the take of ESA-listed SR winter-run Chinook salmon), CV spring-run Chinook salmon, CV steelhead and threatened Southern distinct population segment of North American (sDPS) green sturgeon (Acipenser medirostris) for scientific research purposes. NRSI will collect fish entrainment data at five unscreened irrigation water diversions located along the Sacramento River and Delta, in Sutter, Yolo and Sacramento counties, in the Central Valley, California. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Juvenile fish will be captured by fyke net, identified to species, enumerated and measured. Dead or moribund fish fish will be returned to the irrigation canals and live fish will be released into the Sacramento River. The objectives of the study are: to determine correlation of fish entrainment with river diversion flows, to quantify benefits to fish populations from screening small-scale agricultural diversions, and to advance the development of criteria for prioritizing fish screening projects on the Sacramento River. Permit 16083 will expire on January 31, 2013. Dated: September 12, 2011. Angela Somma, Chief, Endangered Species Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.
