SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority The issuance of Scientific Purposes and Enhancement of Survival Permit permits by NMFS, as required by the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531–1543) (ESA), is based on a finding that such permits: (1) Are applied for in good faith; (2) would not operate to the disadvantage of the listed species which are the subject of the permits; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA. Authority to take listed species is subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Permits and modifications are issued in accordance with and are subject to the ESA and NMFS regulations (50 CFR parts 222– 226) governing listed fish and wildlife permits. Species Covered in This Notice This notice is relevant to federally threatened Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch). Background On January 8, 2013 NMFS announced in the Federal Register a notice of receipt of a Scientific Purposes and Enhancement of Survival Permit application and draft Hatchery and Genetic Management Plan (HGMP) from the California Department of Fish and Game, now Wildlife (CDFW), for a 10 year period (78 FR 1201). On January 30, 2013 NMFS published a corrected Federal Register notice with clarifications regarding the comment period (78 FR 6298) which ended March 1, 2013. The draft HGMP specified methods of operation for the Iron Gate hatchery coho salmon program located along the Klamath River, within the State of California. NMFS also announced the availability of a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) regarding issuance of a permit authorizing take of coho salmon associated with implementation of the HGMP. Public review and comment were invited on both the draft HGMP and the draft EA. The public review and comment period ended on March 1, 2013. NMFS did not receive any comment letters on the Draft HGMP or the Draft EA during the public review period. The HGMP will be implemented as part of the existing coho salmon artificial propagation program at Iron Gate Hatchery. Actions taken pursuant to the permit are designed to enhance the survival of coho salmon residing in the Upper Klamath River below Iron Gate Dam. The HGMP incorporates two E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 225 / Friday, November 21, 2014 / Notices main components: Artificial propagation and monitoring and evaluation (M&E). Artificial propagation activities that could lead to the take of listed coho salmon include: Adult broodstock collection, spawning, rearing, handling, evaluation, tagging and release of progeny. Once the threat of demographic extinction is reduced, the number of hatchery adult coho salmon allowed to spawn naturally in Bogus Creek may be controlled to insure that the proportionate natural influence (PNI) for spawning coho salmon exceeds 0.5 (PNI > 0.5). The purpose for controlling the PNI is to have natural environment rather than the hatchery environment drive local adaptation and selection processes to improve genetic fitness. The HGMP includes measures to increase the fertilization of eggs and survival rate for each life stage and to minimize the likelihood of genetic or ecological effects to listed natural fish resulting from the hatchery operations and propagation of hatchery fish. Monitoring and evaluation will occur by conducting coho spawning ground and carcass surveys in the mainstem Klamath River and key tributary streams that comprise habitat for the Upper Klamath River coho salmon population unit. These data will be used to estimate adult natural and hatchery escapement levels and spawn timing in key streams for the Upper Klamath population unit as a whole. M&E activities will also collect necessary data to document achievement of performance indicators specified in the HGMP. Take of adult and juvenile coho salmon associated with Permit 15755 is described in the NMFS permit and particularly detailed in Table 1 of the permit. Permit 15755 expires on August 31, 2024.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. SEDAR is a three step process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process utilizing webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is a data report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a Summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69429 Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The Review Workshop is an independent peer review of the assessment developed during the assessment process, which may include Data and Assessment Workshops. Workshop Panelists will review the assessment and document their comments and recommendations in a Review Panel Summary. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency. Special Accommodations This meeting is accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for auxiliary aids should be directed to the SEDAR office (see ADDRESSES) at least 10 business days prior to the meeting.
