Takes of Marine Mammals Incidental to Specified Activities; Seabird Research Activities in Central California, 2015-2016; Correction, 3566 [2015-01136]

Download as PDF 3566 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 15 / Friday, January 23, 2015 / Notices Impact on Availability of Affected Species or Stock for Taking for Subsistence Uses Endangered Species Act (ESA) None of the marine mammals for which incidental take is proposed are listed as threatened or endangered under the ESA. Therefore, NMFS has determined that issuance of the IHA to GFNMS under section 101(a)(5)(D) of the MMPA will have no effect on species listed as threatened or endangered under the ESA. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) In 2012, we prepared an EA analyzing the potential effects to the human environment from conducting rocky intertidal surveys along the California and Oregon coasts and issued a FONSI on the issuance of an IHA for GFNMS’ rocky intertidal surveys in accordance with section 6.01 of the NOAA Administrative Order 216–6 (Environmental Review Procedures for Implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, May 20, 1999). GFNMS’ proposed activities and impacts for 2015 are within the scope of our 2012 EA and FONSI. We have reviewed the 2012 EA and determined that there are no new direct, indirect, or cumulative impacts to the human and natural environment associated with the IHA requiring evaluation in a supplemental EA and we, therefore, reaffirm the 2012 FONSI. Authorization tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES As a result of these determinations, NMFS has authorized the take of marine mammals incidental to GFNMS’ rocky intertidal and black abalone monitoring research activities, provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements are incorporated.
