Commission of Fine Arts; Notice of Meeting, 18530 [2014-07252]

Download as PDF 18530 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 63 / Wednesday, April 2, 2014 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES on FWS’s application and request. We did not receive any comments in response to the notice. Two bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) were incidentally killed on April 12, 2011, in gillnets deployed during sturgeon research conducted for the Natural Resources Damage Assessment of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. As a result, FWS determined that this and other similar research had the potential to incidentally take additional marine mammals via entanglement in gillnets, resulting in injury, serious injury, or mortality. Therefore, FWS determined that a request for incidental take authorization was warranted, and requested authorization to take bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis), pantropical spotted dolphins (S. attenuata), and striped dolphins (S. coeruleoalba) by injury, serious injury, or mortality. On April 15 and July 8, 2011, respectively, NMFS’ Southeast Regional Office (SERO) provided FWS with marine mammal mitigation measures for spring sampling and marine mammal conservation measures and recommendations for summer and fall sampling. These measures were designed to prevent additional incidents of take incidental to sturgeon research, and FWS agreed to adhere to these measures. Subsequently, NMFS’ Office of Protected Resources determined, in consultation with SERO, that implementation of the measures as described would mitigate the risk of incidental capture of marine mammals in sturgeon sampling gear to discountable levels. Therefore, we determined that an incidental take authorization was no longer warranted. On February 14, 2014, FWS submitted a withdrawal of their previous request for incidental take authorization, reiterating their commitment to working closely with NMFS and other partners on sturgeon research in the GOM while implementing the mitigation measures as described by SERO. No further incidents of incidental capture have occurred since FWS began implementing the prescribed measures. Dated: March 28, 2014. Donna S. Wieting, Director, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.
