Record of Decision for the General Management Plan, Canaveral National Seashore, 64213-64214 [2014-25584]

Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 208 / Tuesday, October 28, 2014 / Notices management decisions in the park for the next five to ten years. Biscayne National Park’s FMP is the result of a cooperative effort between the Park and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). This partnership is a necessary part of fishery management because the Park’s enabling legislation states that fishing within the Park must be in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida. The FMP FEIS presented a range of five alternatives. The development of the alternatives and the identification of the preferred alternative were based on a combination of public input (derived from three public comment periods and three series of public meetings, and the input of the FMP Working Group), interagency meetings, and environmental and socioeconomic analyses. The NPS, in coordination with the FWC, has decided to implement Alternative 4, Rebuild and Conserve Park Fisheries Resources for its Fishery Management Plan. The NPS and FWC determined that Alternative 4 best balances resource protection and visitor use. Factors considered during the decision-making process included: (A) Assessment of the direction and degree of environmental impacts to the Park’s fisheries resources, given their current status, (B) the ability of an alternative to equitably balance conservation, enjoyment and extractive uses of the Park’s fisheries resources, (C) impacts on recreational and commercial fishing, (D) feasibility of successfully implementing regulations to achieve alternative goals, and (E) socioeconomic impacts. Factors A and B were weighted more heavily than the remaining factors. Under Alternative 4, a considerable change from current management strategies would be required to achieve a substantial improvement in Park fisheries resources status and a reduction in fishing-related habitat impacts. Specific regulatory changes proposed under this alternative include: • Developing park-specific fishing regulations (in conjunction with the FWC) to increase the abundance and average size of targeted fish and invertebrate species within the Park by at least 20% over current conditions and over conditions in similar habitat outside the park. • Elimination of the two-day lobster sport season. • Prohibition of the use of an air supply or gear with a trigger mechanism while spearfishing. • Phasing out of commercial fishing via the requirement that all commercial fishers must purchase a limited-entry, Special Use Permit from the park Superintendent. The permit would be VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:06 Oct 27, 2014 Jkt 235001 permanently non-transferable, would require annual renewal, and would be ‘‘use or lose’’ such that a permit could not be renewed if (1) it was not renewed the previous year, or (2) no catch was reported in the previous year. • Establishment (by FWC) of coral reef protection areas (CRPAs) to delineate coral reef habitat on which lobster and crab traps could not be deployed. Traps within the CRPAs could be moved outside CRPA boundaries by authorized FWC or Park staff, or other authorized personnel. Additionally, the trap number from traps observed within CRPAs would be recorded, and traps with three or more recorded violations could be confiscated from Park waters. • Proposal of a no-trawl zone within the Bay, in which commercial shrimp trawling would be prohibited. This zone would serve to protect juvenile fish and invertebrates commonly caught as bycatch in trawls, as well as protect essential fish habitat. New regulations will be implemented through the federal rulemaking process (for federal rules) and through the FWC’s rulemaking process (for parkspecific state rules). The public will have the opportunity to comment on all proposed regulatory changes. Regulatory changes that would be implemented are expected to improve fisheries and habitat resources.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FEIS/ GMP evaluated four alternatives for managing use and development of the Seashore: • Alternative A was the No-Action Alternative and is the continuation of current management. • The NPS preferred alternative was Alternative B. Under this alternative, emphasis would be placed on retaining the Seashore’s relatively undeveloped character and providing uncrowded experiences by dispersing visitors via a shuttle service or canoe, kayak, hiking and walking trails, and bicycle trails. Elements of this alternative would support the resilience of the Seashore to climate change concerns, such as sea level rise, coastal erosion, and higher storm surges, all of which may affect cultural and natural resources as well as visitor experience at the Seashore. • Under Alternative C the Seashore would be managed as a place where visitors would explore and experience a wide range of opportunities that would be designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the natural and cultural history of eastern coastal Florida. When visitors enter the Seashore, they would be presented with choices for alternative modes of access to land- and water-based natural and cultural features, appropriate recreational opportunities, and educational pursuits.

See EDIS Document Nos. 542137–42. The Commission therefore is requesting submissions from the public, including the current owners of the trademarks or trade dress at issue, on whether these exclusion orders should be rescinded based on changed conditions of fact or law, or the public interest, pursuant to 19 CFR 210.76. The public interest factors that will be considered by the Commission in determining whether to rescind the exclusion orders include the following: (1) The public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. Written Submissions: The parties to the investigations, the current rights’ holders or successors-in-interest to the trademarks or trade dress at issue, interested government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to file written submissions on whether the Commission should rescind the exclusion orders at issue based on changed conditions of fact or law or the PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 public interest. The written submissions must be filed no later than close of business on December 22, 2014. Reply submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on January 20, 2015. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission.
