Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; Electronic Dealer Reporting System Workshop, 44592-44593 [2012-18534]

Download as PDF 44592 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 146 / Monday, July 30, 2012 / Notices and limited duration. To ensure minimal disturbance, DNR would implement the mitigation measures described previously, which we have preliminarily determined will serve as the means for effecting the least practicable adverse effect on marine mammal stocks or populations and their habitat. We preliminarily find that DNR’s restoration activities would result in the incidental take of small numbers of marine mammals, and that the requested number of takes will have no more than a negligible impact on the affected species and stocks. Impact on Availability of Affected Species for Taking for Subsistence Uses There are no relevant subsistence uses of marine mammals implicated by this action. Endangered Species Act (ESA) There are no ESA-listed marine mammals found in the action area; therefore, no consultation under the ESA is required. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), as implemented by the regulations published by the Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and NOAA Administrative Order 216–6, NMFS prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to consider the direct, indirect and cumulative effects to the human environment resulting from issuance of an IHA to DNR. NMFS signed a Finding of No Significant Impact on October 27, 2010. NMFS has reviewed the proposed application and preliminarily determined that there are no substantial changes to the proposed action or new environmental impacts or concerns. Therefore, NMFS has determined that a new or supplemental EA or Environmental Impact Statement is likely unnecessary. Before making a final determination in this regard, NMFS will review public comments and information submitted by the public and others in response to this notice. The EA referenced above is available for review at http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/ permits/incidental.htm. Proposed Authorization As a result of these preliminary determinations, NMFS proposes to authorize the take of marine mammals incidental to DNR’s restoration activities, provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements are incorporated. 17:34 Jul 27, 2012 Jkt 226001 Terminal Bldg., Second Floor, St. Thomas, U.S.V.I., 00802.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Atlantic HMS are managed under the dual authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., and the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act, 16 U.S.C. 971 et seq. Under the Magnuson-Stevens Act, NMFS must ensure consistency with the National Standards and manage fisheries to maintain optimum yield, rebuild overfished fisheries, and prevent overfishing. Atlantic Tunas Convention Act authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to promulgate regulations, as may be necessary and appropriate, to implement the recommendations adopted by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas. The authority to issue regulations under Magnuson-Stevens Act and Atlantic Tunas Convention Act has been delegated from the Secretary to the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA. The implementing regulations for Atlantic HMS are at 50 CFR part 635.

ACTION: Notice of public workshops. AGENCY: On June 28, 2011, NMFS published a proposed rule that considered requiring, among other things, Federal Atlantic swordfish, shark, and tunas dealers (except for dealers reporting Atlantic bluefin tuna) to report commercially-harvested Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and bigeye, albacore, yellowfin, and skipjack (BAYS) tunas through one centralized electronic reporting system. This electronic reporting system will allow dealers to submit Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and BAYS tuna data on a more real-time basis and more efficiently, which will reduce duplicative data submissions from different regions. We proposed to delay the effective date of the electronic reporting requirements until 2013 in order to give sufficient time for dealers to adjust to implementation of the new system and the additional requirements. On June 29, 2012, we announced the date and location for nine upcoming workshops in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and Atlantic area to introduce the new reporting system to Highly Migratory Species (HMS) dealers. In this notice, we announce the date and location for an additional training workshop in the Caribbean. DATES: The additional training workshop for the new HMS electronic dealer system will be held on August 29, 2012, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for additional details.

Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; Electronic Dealer Reporting 
System Workshop

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Notice of public workshops.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On June 28, 2011, NMFS published a proposed rule that 
considered requiring, among other things, Federal Atlantic swordfish, 
shark, and tunas dealers (except for dealers reporting Atlantic bluefin 
tuna) to report commercially-harvested Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and 
bigeye, albacore, yellowfin, and skipjack (BAYS) tunas through one 
centralized electronic reporting system. This electronic reporting 
system will allow dealers to submit Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and 
BAYS tuna data on a more real-time basis and more efficiently, which 
will reduce duplicative data submissions from different regions. We 
proposed to delay the effective date of the electronic reporting 
requirements until 2013 in order to give sufficient time for dealers to 
adjust to implementation of the new system and the additional 
requirements. On June 29, 2012, we announced the date and location for 
nine upcoming workshops in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and Atlantic 
area to introduce the new reporting system to Highly Migratory Species 
(HMS) dealers. In this notice, we announce the date and location for an 
additional training workshop in the Caribbean.

DATES: The additional training workshop for the new HMS electronic 
dealer system will be held on August 29, 2012, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. 
See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for additional details.

ADDRESSES: The training workshop will be held in St. Thomas, United 
States Virgin Islands (U.S.V.I.) at the following address: Department 
of Planning and Natural Resources, Office of the Commissioner, 8100

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Atlantic HMS are managed under the dual 
authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., and the Atlantic 
Tunas Convention Act, 16 U.S.C. 971 et seq. Under the Magnuson-Stevens 
Act, NMFS must ensure consistency with the National Standards and 
manage fisheries to maintain optimum yield, rebuild overfished 
fisheries, and prevent overfishing. Atlantic Tunas Convention Act 
authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to promulgate regulations, as may 
be necessary and appropriate, to implement the recommendations adopted 
by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas. 
The authority to issue regulations under Magnuson-Stevens Act and 
Atlantic Tunas Convention Act has been delegated from the Secretary to 
the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA. The implementing 
regulations for Atlantic HMS are at 50 CFR part 635.

    The current regulations and infrastructure of the Atlantic HMS 
quota-monitoring systems result in a delay of several weeks or more 
before NMFS receives dealer data. This can affect management and 
monitoring of small Atlantic HMS quotas and short fishing seasons. As 
such, on June 28, 2011 (76 FR 37750), we published a proposed rule in 
the Federal Register that considered requiring, among other things, 
Federal Atlantic swordfish, shark, and tunas dealers (except for 
dealers reporting Atlantic bluefin tuna) to report commercially-
harvested Atlantic sharks, swordfish, and BAYS tunas through one 
centralized electronic reporting system. Under this new system, dealers 
would submit HMS data electronically (instead of in a paper format) and 
include additional information that is necessary for management of HMS 
(e.g., vessel and logbook information). The electronic submission of 
data will eliminate the delay associated with mailing in hardcopy 
reports. In this manner, HMS landings data will be submitted on a more
