North Pacific Fishery Management Council; Public Meetings, 56448-56449 [2015-23459]

Download as PDF 56448 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 181 / Friday, September 18, 2015 / Notices is to study the degree to which juvenile salmonids may be getting stranded by ship wakes along the lower Columbia River between river miles 21 and 102. The researchers would investigate the potential for stranding at approximately 24 ‘‘high risk’’ sites. The researchers would also evaluate whether the strategic placement of dredged material could reduce the risk of stranding. The research would benefit the listed species by helping river managers determine the likelihood of juvenile stranding along the lower river and investigate potential means for reducing it. Hart Crowser, Inc. would use beach seines to capture, handle, and release juvenile fish. Researchers may also collect stranded fish and return them to the river. Hart Crowser, Inc. does not intend to kill any of the fish being captured but a small number may die as an unintended result of the activities. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Permit 19587 The Columbia River Estuary Study (CREST) is requesting a three-year scientific research permit to take LCR Chinook salmon, CR chum salmon, and LCR coho salmon. The objective of the research is to study the effectiveness of habitat restoration in Meglar Creek, Washington. The research would evaluate fish passage and habitat use in Meglar Creek and the Columbia River nearshore environment at the mouth of Meglar Creek. The CREST researchers would capture fish with a trap net. A portion of the juvenile Chinook and coho salmon would be anesthetized and tagged with passive integrated transponder tags (PIT-tags). The research would benefit listed salmonids by determining how effectively currently altered habitats support salmonids and using that information to guide future habitat modifications. CREST does not intend to kill any listed fish but a small number may die as an unintended result of the research activities. Permit 19690 The Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) is seeking a five-year permit to take adult SR spr/sum Chinook, SR sockeye, and SR steelhead at a location approximately one mile upstream from the confluence of the Lemhi and Salmon Rivers in Idaho. Under the permit, they would trap adult Chinook and steelhead at a temporary weir, measure and tag them with PITtags, and monitor their movements in the Lemhi Valley with the purpose of determining the animals’ response to habitat improvements throughout the subbasin. All adult sockeye salmon captured at the weir would simply be VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:47 Sep 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 handled and released without being tagged. The weir would operate in 12hour increments (checked at least twice daily), and all fish to be tagged would be anesthetized before the process, and allowed to recover afterwards; they would then be released back to the river upstream from the weir. The researchers would also collect scale and tissue samples from a number of fish for DNA analysis. The research is intended to form an integral part of an ongoing program that intensively monitors a number of ecological parameters in the Lemhi watershed. The weir operation would allow greater resolution of both adult return numbers and fish movement in the area, and it would feed that data into the information stream being generated by the overall program. The research would benefit the fish by providing new information that managers can use to (1) evaluate and monitor steelhead and Chinook status in the region, and (2) design and deploy increasingly effective habitat restoration actions throughout the fishes’ range. The researchers do not intend to kill any of the listed fish, but a few may die as an inadvertent result of the planned activities. Permit 19741 The Yakama Nation is seeking a fiveyear permit to annually take juvenile, natural MCR steelhead during the course of a research project designed to assess their current abundance in the Rock Creek watershed in south central Washington. Under the permit, the researchers would employ backpack electrofishing to capture a number of juvenile MCR steelhead. Some of those fish would be tagged with PIT-tags, and some would be tissue-sampled, but most would simply be handled and released. The researchers would work primarily in five reference areas (reaches) and they would use mark/recapture techniques to study juvenile development and movement in Rock Creek. They would also conduct some boat electrofishing in the inundated pool downstream from the research area in Rock Creek—primarily to look at predator abundance. In addition, the researchers would take tissue samples from dead adults during spawning ground surveys. The purpose of the research is to assess the current distribution and relative abundance of MCR steelhead in selected portions of Rock Creek. That information would be integrated with information being collected on other ecological parameters and the researches would use that information as a whole to determine species status in the system and evaluate the effectiveness of several PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 habitat restoration actions that have been going on there for a number of years. This research would benefit listed steelhead in that it would be used by fish managers such as the Rock Creek Subbasin Recovery Planning Group to prioritize to plan restoration, protection, and recovery actions for Rock Creek steelhead. This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the applications, associated documents, and comments submitted to determine whether the applications meet the requirements of section 10(a) of the ESA and Federal regulations. The final permit decisions will not be made until after the end of the 30-day comment period. NMFS will publish notice of its final action in the Federal Register. Dated: September 15, 2015.
