The task force will focus on providing information and advice on the establishment of long-term goals for salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River Basin. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) will appoint the members in consultation with MAFAC and they will serve for a term of up to two (2) years. The terms would begin in December 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: MAFAC is the only Federal advisory committee with the responsibility to advise the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) on all matters concerning living marine resources that are the responsibility of the Department of Commerce. MAFAC is establishing a Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force to assist it in the development of long-term goals for SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River Basin, which is critical to the mission and goals of the NMFS. Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force This Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force is being created for state, tribal and stakeholder input to MAFAC to support development of quantitative goals for Columbia River Basin salmon and steelhead at the species, stock, major population group (MPG), and population levels. The goals will be collaboratively developed to meet conservation needs while also providing harvest (including those necessary to satisfy tribal treaty rights). Shared goals will enhance engagement and understanding by providing a concise, common definition of success, consistent means to measure progress, and improved public support for work across the Columbia River Basin. The scope of the Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force will fall within the objectives and scope of the MAFAC; is more comprehensive than any prior goal-setting effort in the Basin; and will encompass: • All Endangered Species Act-listed and non-listed salmon and steelhead in the Columbia Basin, above and below Bonneville Dam. • Ocean, mainstem, and tributary fisheries that harvest Columbia Basin stocks, including commercial, recreational, and tribal fisheries. • Multiple geographic scales (Basinwide, species, and major population group). • All impacts across the salmon and steelhead life-cycle (e.g., habitat, hatchery, hydro, and harvest). • Consideration of ecological conditions and of current and future habitat capacity. The Task Force will report to MAFAC and will not provide advice or work product directly to NMFS. Recommendations generated by this Task Force’s efforts will not result in any regulatory decision, obligate any party to undertake certain activities, or diminish treaty/trust obligations. The input of the Task Force will support efforts that seek common solutions that work for all sovereigns and stakeholders. The strength of the Task Force will hinge on the breadth of regional participation, collaboration, and commitment. This Task Force will consist of 25–35 individuals who have demonstrated subject matter expertise regarding salmon and steelhead biology and management in the Columbia River Basin, as well as the interest and ability to work collaboratively and respectfully with other sovereigns and stakeholders E:\FR\FM\22JYN1.SGM 22JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 141 / Friday, July 22, 2016 / Notices to find solutions. Individuals should represent the geographic diversity of the Columbia River Basin, as well as the diversity of interests including state and tribal fish managers; NGO/ environmental interests; commercial fishing interests; recreational fishing interests; utility interests; river industry interests; agricultural/irrigation interests; and local watershed or recovery planning interests. At least one member of MAFAC will serve as a member of the Task Force. It is intended that the Task Force be established for an initial period of two (2) years with a possibility of extending that term if deemed necessary by NMFS and MAFAC. Task Force members should be able to fulfill the time commitments required for quarterly meetings (mostly by webinar or teleconference and potentially inperson).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: MAFAC is the only Federal advisory committee 
with the responsibility to advise the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) 
on all matters concerning living marine resources that are the 
responsibility of the Department of Commerce. MAFAC is establishing a 
Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force to assist it in the development 
of long-term goals for salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River 
Basin, which is critical to the mission and goals of the NMFS.

Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force

    This Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force is being created for 
state, tribal and stakeholder input to MAFAC to support development of 
quantitative goals for Columbia River Basin salmon and steelhead at the 
species, stock, major population group (MPG), and population levels. 
The goals will be collaboratively developed to meet conservation needs 
while also providing harvest (including those necessary to satisfy 
tribal treaty rights). Shared goals will enhance engagement and 
understanding by providing a concise, common definition of success, 
consistent means to measure progress, and improved public support for 
work across the Columbia River Basin.
    The scope of the Columbia Basin Partnership Task Force will fall 
within the objectives and scope of the MAFAC; is more comprehensive 
than any prior goal-setting effort in the Basin; and will encompass:
     All Endangered Species Act-listed and non-listed salmon 
and steelhead in the Columbia Basin, above and below Bonneville Dam.
     Ocean, mainstem, and tributary fisheries that harvest 
Columbia Basin stocks, including commercial, recreational, and tribal 
fisheries.
     Multiple geographic scales (Basin-wide, species, and major 
population group).
     All impacts across the salmon and steelhead life-cycle 
(e.g., habitat, hatchery, hydro, and harvest).
     Consideration of ecological conditions and of current and 
future habitat capacity.
    The Task Force will report to MAFAC and will not provide advice or 
work product directly to NMFS. Recommendations generated by this Task 
Force's efforts will not result in any regulatory decision, obligate 
any party to undertake certain activities, or diminish treaty/trust 
obligations. The input of the Task Force will support efforts that seek 
common solutions that work for all sovereigns and stakeholders. The 
strength of the Task Force will hinge on the breadth of regional 
participation, collaboration, and commitment.
    This Task Force will consist of 25-35 individuals who have 
demonstrated subject matter expertise regarding salmon and steelhead 
biology and management in the Columbia River Basin, as well as the 
interest and ability to work collaboratively and respectfully with 
other sovereigns and stakeholders

to find solutions. Individuals should represent the geographic 
diversity of the Columbia River Basin, as well as the diversity of 
interests including state and tribal fish managers; NGO/environmental 
interests; commercial fishing interests; recreational fishing 
interests; utility interests; river industry interests; agricultural/
irrigation interests; and local watershed or recovery planning 
interests. At least one member of MAFAC will serve as a member of the 
Task Force.
    It is intended that the Task Force be established for an initial 
period of two (2) years with a possibility of extending that term if 
deemed necessary by NMFS and MAFAC. Task Force members should be able 
to fulfill the time commitments required for quarterly meetings (mostly 
by webinar or teleconference and potentially in-person). Members of the
