The ‘‘Final Rule to Revise the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) for Species Under the Jurisdiction of the National Marine Fisheries Service’’ revised the CFR tables that list threatened and endangered species under the ESA. During that process, we incorrectly revised the descriptions of listed entities for the DPSs of the loggerhead sea turtle in a manner that differs from the original listing descriptions. In this document, we correct the descriptions of the DPSs in the CFR tables. We also add cross-references to recently designated critical habitat of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean DPS of the loggerhead sea turtle. DATES: Effective on December 31, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Schultz at (301) 427–8443, or Angela Somma at (301) 427–8474. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 14, 2014, we, NMFS, issued the ‘‘Final Rule to Revise the Code of Federal Regulations for Species Under the Jurisdiction of the National Marine Fisheries Service’’ (79 FR 20802) to clarify and update the descriptions and associated protections for species that PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Communities affected City of Port Clinton, Unincorporated Areas of Ottawa County, Village of Put-InBay. Unincorporated Areas of Ottawa County. Village of Oak Harbor. Unincorporated Areas of Ottawa County. are listed as threatened or endangered under the ESA. These revisions changed the format and content of the tables, which list and describe threatened and endangered species under NMFS’ jurisdiction at 50 CFR 223.102(e) and 50 CFR 224.101(h), respectively. For example, the table columns previously labeled, ‘‘where listed’’ are now labeled ‘‘description of listed entity,’’ and the columns labeled, ‘‘critical habitat’’ now cite the specific section in 50 CFR part 226, where the critical habitat description is found. During this process, we incorrectly revised the descriptions of the listed entities for the DPSs of the loggerhead sea turtle. For example, we changed the description of listed entity from ‘‘Northwest Atlantic Ocean north of the equator, south of 60° N. Lat., and west of 40° W. Long.,’’ to ‘‘loggerhead sea turtles originating from the Northwest Atlantic Ocean west of 40° W. Long.’’ Therefore, this document amends the tables by correcting the descriptions of listed entities for the DPSs of the loggerhead sea turtle to reflect the original listing description published in the CFR. There was one mistake in the original listing (76 FR 58868, September 22, 2011). The Southwest Indian Ocean E:\FR\FM\31DER1.SGM 31DER1
