Evaluation of State Coastal Management Program and National Estuarine Research Reserves, 51313 [2014-20488]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 167 / Thursday, August 28, 2014 / Notices published on January 31, 2014 (79 FR 5379). The NOI indicated the amendment would be supported by an environmental impact statement, which was the preliminary determination at the time the original purpose and need of the amendment was drafted. When the Council first requested development of this amendment the allocation applied to dolphin and snapper-grouper species. The Council subsequently removed snapper-grouper species from the allocation action, which left only dolphin allocations and AM modifications for snapper-grouper species and golden crab as amendment actions. A reassessment of the actions in the amendment relative to the National Environmental Policy Act indicates an EA is appropriate. Therefore, a DEIS will not be prepared for the Generic AM and Dolphin Allocation Amendment at this time. The EA for the Generic AM and Dolphin Allocation Amendment would consider alternatives to modify existing AMs for snapper-grouper species and golden crab to provide consistency among species, and ensure overfishing does not occur. The EA would also consider alternatives to modify existing sector allocations for dolphin. The Council held public hearings in August 2014 to discuss the actions included in the Generic AM and Dolphin Allocation Amendment. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: August 22, 2014. Alan D.
