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.

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 78724 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 250 / Wednesday, December 31, 2014 / Rules and Regulations DPS includes loggerhead sea turtles originating from the Southwest Indian Ocean north of the equator, south of 30° N. Lat., east of 20° E. Long., and west of 80° E. Long; the original listing incorrectly indicated, ‘‘west of 20° E. Long., and east of 80° E. Long.’’ On July 10, 2014, NMFS and USFWS issued separate final rules to designate critical habitat for marine and terrestrial habitat, respectively, for the Northwest Atlantic Ocean DPS of the loggerhead sea turtle (79 FR 39855 and 79 FR 39755, respectively). At that time, we did not update the column labeled ‘‘critical habitat,’’ in the table in 50 CFR 223.102(e) to cross reference these new rules. Therefore, this document also corrects the table by citing the critical habitat designations in 50 CFR 226.223 and 50 CFR 17.95(c) in the column of the table in 50 CFR 223.102(e). Classification This correction does not alter or revise in any way the threatened or endangered species statuses or critical habitat designations for the DPSs of the loggerhead sea turtle.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Final Rule To 
Revise the Code of Federal Regulations for Species Under the 
Jurisdiction of the National Marine Fisheries Service; Correction

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document contains technical corrections for errors in a 
rule related to Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for distinct 
population segments (DPSs) of the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta 
caretta). 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 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[deg] N. Lat., and west of 
40[deg] W. Long.,'' to ``loggerhead sea turtles originating from the 
Northwest Atlantic Ocean west of 40[deg] 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

[[Page 78724]]

DPS includes loggerhead sea turtles originating from the Southwest 
Indian Ocean north of the equator, south of 30[deg] N. Lat., east of 
20[deg] E. Long., and west of 80[deg] E. Long; the original listing 
incorrectly indicated, ``west of 20[deg] E. Long., and east of 80[deg] 
E. Long.''
    On July 10, 2014, NMFS and USFWS issued separate final rules to 
designate critical habitat for marine and terrestrial habitat, 
respectively, for the Northwest Atlantic Ocean DPS of the loggerhead 
sea turtle (79 FR 39855 and 79 FR 39755, respectively). At that time, 
we did not update the column labeled ``critical habitat,'' in the table 
in 50 CFR 223.102(e) to cross reference these new rules. Therefore, 
this document also corrects the table by citing the critical habitat 
designations in 50 CFR 226.223 and 50 CFR 17.95(c) in the column of the 
table in 50 CFR 223.102(e).

Classification

    This correction does not alter or revise in any way the threatened 
or endangered species statuses or critical habitat designations for the 
DPSs of the loggerhead sea turtle. Therefore, the Assistant 
Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, finds good cause to waive 
requirement to provide prior public notice and comment.

Need for Correction

    As published, the final regulations contain errors which may prove 
to be misleading and need to be clarified.
