Fisheries of the South Atlantic; Southeast Data, Assessment, and Review (SEDAR); Public Meeting, 61795 [2015-26118]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 198 / Wednesday, October 14, 2015 / Notices Endangered under the ESA. Additional pre-listed black abalone for this research may be transferred from the University of California, Santa Barbara, or other facilities that currently maintain prelisted black abalone. In addition, wild origin black abalone may be obtained for this research through confiscations due to law enforcement cases, or from projects covered under ESA Section 7 consultations. The research proposed would support the development of management strategies necessary for the successful recovery of this species and possibly assist natural resource managers in the future selection of the location and size of marine protected areas designed to protect black abalone. Prior efforts to spawn and produce black abalone spat have been unsuccessful, so this proposed work would seek to better condition black abalone for successful spawning and to improve fertilization success, settlement, and recruitment. 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: October 7, 2015.

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 threestep process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process utilizing a workshop and/or 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 Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, Highly Migratory Species Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61795 and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The items of discussion in the Assessment webinar are as follows: Participants will discuss and provide modeling advice to prepare for the Assessment Workshop. 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.
