NMFS may issue permits to take listed species for any act otherwise prohibited by section 9 for scientific purposes or to enhance the propagation or survival of the affected species, under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA.

An additional application, for operation of the Lookingglass Hatchery spring Chinook salmon program was received from the ODFW in January 2012. The purpose of these programs is to support conservation, as well as harvest in tribal, recreational, and commercial fisheries. E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
