Chinook salmon (O. tshawytscha): Threatened, naturally and artificially produced in Puget Sound. Chum salmon (O. keta): Threatened, naturally and artificially produced Hood Canal summer-run. Bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus): Threatened Puget Sound/Washington Coast. Background The WDFW, the Lummi Nation, the Nooksack Indian Tribe, the Upper Skagit Indian Tribe, and the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, have jointly submitted to NMFS HGMPs for 11 PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39911 hatchery programs in the Nooksack River Basin in Washington State. The HGMPs were updated and submitted to NMFS from 2013 to 2015, pursuant to limit 6 of the 4(d) Rule for salmon and steelhead. The hatchery programs include releases of ESA-listed Chinook salmon, and non-listed coho, pink, and fall-run chum salmon into the Nooksack River Basin. NEPA requires Federal agencies to conduct environmental analyses of their proposed major actions to determine if the actions may affect the human environment. NMFS’s action of determining that the co-managers’ HGMPs meet criteria under Limit 6 of the 4(d) Rule for salmon and steelhead promulgated under the ESA, is a major Federal action subject to environmental review under NEPA. Therefore, NMFS is seeking public input on the scope of the required NEPA analysis, including the range of reasonable alternatives, recommendations for relevant analysis methods, and information associated with impacts of the alternatives to the resources listed below or other relevant resources. NMFS will perform an environmental review of the HGMPs and prepare an EIS that will identify potentially significant direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts on the following resources that may be affected by the Proposed Action or its alternatives: • Listed and Non-listed Species and their habitats • Water Quantity • Socioeconomics • Environmental Justice • Cumulative Impacts NMFS will rigorously explore and objectively evaluate a full range of reasonable alternatives in the EIS, including the Proposed Action and a noaction alternative. Other alternatives may include a decreased production alternative. For all potentially significant impacts, the EIS will identify measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the impacts, where feasible. Request for Comments NMFS provides this notice to: (1) Advise other agencies and the public of its plans to analyze effects related to the action, and (2) obtain suggestions and information that may be useful to the scope of issues and the full range of alternatives to include in the EIS. NMFS invites comment from all interested parties to ensure that the full range of issues related to the 11 salmon HGMPs is identified. Comments should be as specific as possible.
