Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 76 / Monday, April 21, 2014 / Notices ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Our Response: The mortality estimates at haulouts provided in the SAR are rough estimates because they are based on a combination of biologist and Alaska Native hunter’s observations and counts. We have provided clarifying text to the SAR to reflect the source and nature of this information. Comment 35: One commenter suggested that the SAR be modified to reflect the level of industrial activity near Hanna Shoal. Our Response: From 2006 to 2013, two to three operators have conducted activities in the Chukchi Sea annually, but not always near Hanna Shoal. Activities have included mainly geotechnical and environmental studies, but also 2D and 3D seismic activities, and one drilling operation. We anticipate that the level of activity in the foreseeable future near Hanna Shoal will remain the same as that which we have seen in the past 8 years. Comment 36: One commenter recommended that the Service update information about the amount of tonnage of cargo, including oil products, moving through Russian waters, as the traffic there far exceeds that in U.S. waters. Our Response: The information presented was the most current on the number of transits at the time the draft SAR was completed. We currently do not have information on the tonnage of cargo moving through Russian and U.S. waters, but will seek a source for this type of information in the future. References In accordance with section 117(b)(1) of the MMPA, we include in this notice a list of the sources of information or published reports upon which we based the revised SARs. The Service consulted technical reports, conference proceedings, refereed journal publications, and scientific studies prepared or issued by Federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and individuals with expertise in the fields of marine mammal biology and ecology, population dynamics, Alaska Native subsistence use of marine mammals, modeling, and commercial fishing technology and practices.

In addition, the Service consulted publications such as the Journal of Wildlife Management, Conservation Biology, Marine Mammal Science, Ecological Applications, Biological Conservation, Aquatic Mammals, and Journal of Zoology, as well as other refereed journal literature, technical reports, and data sources in the development of these SARs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks OMB approval under the PRA 
for revisions to the Application for Alien Employment Certification

Federal responsibilities for such entry. Form ETA-750, part B provides 
detailed information about an alien's education and work history and is 
used by the DOL to collect information about the professional athlete 
on whose behalf an application for permanent labor certification is 
filed. The Department of Homeland Security also uses part B for foreign 
workers applying for the National Interest Waiver of the job offer 
requirement under INA section 203(b)(2)(B)(i). This use is required 
under is also required 8 CFR 204.5(k)(4)(ii).
    This information collection has been classified as a revision,
