Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 95 / Friday, May 16, 2014 / Notices amended by the Antarctic Science, Tourism and Conservation Act of 1996, has developed regulations for the establishment of a permit system for various activities in Antarctica and designation of certain animals and certain geographic areas a requiring special protection. The regulations establish such a permit system to designate Antarctic Specially Protected Areas. Application Details Permit Application: 2015–001 1. Applicant: Robert Pitman, NOAA, NMFS, Southwest Fisheries Science Center, 8901 La Jolla Shores Dr, La Jolla CA USA 92037 EMCDONALD on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Activity for Which Permit Is Requested Take and import into the U.S. The applicant’s study of movement patterns, diet preferences, and genetics of whales calls for collecting pencil eraser size tissue samples from up to 200 killer whales (Orcinus orca), 15 common minke whales (Balaenoptera acutorostrata), 10 Arnoux’s beaked whales (Berardius arnuxii), 15 blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus), 50 Antarctic minke whales (Balaenoptera bonaerensis), 10 southern right whales (Eubalaena australis), 35 sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus), 35 fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus), and 50 humpback whales (Megaptera movaengliae) of both sexes. The tissue samples will be used in food and habitat studies (using stable isotopes and fatty acids). The same samples will also be used to determine genetic distinctness of the different killer whale types in Antarctica. Tissue samples will be imported to the U.S. for analysis at the Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Small (ca 40g) satellite tags or suction cup tags will be attached to some whales to investigate movement patterns. Whales will also be photographed for photo identification purposes. Additionally, dead marine birds or mammals and parts thereof from killer whale kills will be salvaged, when possible, for identification and to determine baseline environmental chemical composition.
