SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) includes provisions concerning the identification and conservation of EFH (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.). EFH is defined at 50 CFR 600.10 as ‘‘those waters and substrate necessary to fish for spawning, breeding, feeding, or growth to maturity.’’ NMFS must identify and describe EFH, minimize to the extent practicable the adverse effects of fishing on EFH, and identify actions to encourage the conservation and enhancement of EFH (§ 600.815(a)). Federal agencies that authorize, fund, or undertake actions that may adversely affect EFH must consult with NMFS (§ 600.920(a)), and NMFS must provide comments and EFH conservation recommendations to Federal or state agencies regarding any such actions (§ 600.905). In addition to identifying and describing EFH for managed fish species, a review of EFH must be completed every 5 years, and EFH provisions must be revised or amended, as warranted, based on the best available scientific information.

Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Notice of public hearings.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On September 8, 2016, NMFS published a notice of availability 
of the Draft Environmental Assessment for Amendment 10 to the 2006

Habitat Areas of Particular Concern (HAPCs) for Atlantic bluefin tuna 
and sandbar, lemon, and sand tiger sharks based on recent information, 
as warranted; minimize to the extent practicable the adverse effects of 
fishing and non-fishing activities on EFH; and identify other actions

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation 
and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) includes provisions 
concerning the identification and conservation of EFH (16 U.S.C. 1801 
et seq.). EFH is defined at 50 CFR 600.10 as ``those waters and 
substrate necessary to fish for spawning, breeding, feeding, or growth 
to maturity.'' NMFS must identify and describe EFH, minimize to the 
extent practicable the adverse effects of fishing on EFH, and identify 
actions to encourage the conservation and enhancement of EFH (Sec.  
600.815(a)). Federal agencies that authorize, fund, or undertake 
actions that may adversely affect EFH must consult with NMFS (Sec.  
600.920(a)), and NMFS must provide comments and EFH conservation 
recommendations to Federal or state agencies regarding any such actions 
(Sec.  600.905).
    In addition to identifying and describing EFH for managed fish 
species, a review of EFH must be completed every 5 years, and EFH 
provisions must be revised or amended, as warranted, based on the best 
available scientific information. NMFS announced the initiation of this 
review and solicited information for compilation for the draft review 
from the public in a Federal Register notice

on March 24, 2014 (79 FR 15959). The initial public review/submission 
period ended on May 23, 2014. The Draft Atlantic HMS EFH 5-Year Review 
was made available on March 5, 2015 (80 FR 11981), and the public 
comment period ended on April 6, 2015. NMFS analyzed the information 
gathered through the EFH review process, and the Notice of Availability 
for the Final Atlantic HMS EFH 5-Year Review was published on July 1, 
2015 (80 FR 37598). As a result of this review, NMFS determined that a 
revision of HMS EFH was warranted, and that an amendment to the 2006 
Consolidated Atlantic HMS FMP would be developed as Amendment 10.
    On September 8, 2016 (81 FR 62100), NMFS published a notice of 
availability of the Draft Environmental Assessment for Amendment 10 to 
the 2006 Consolidated Atlantic HMS FMP. Specific actions analyzed 
included the update and revision of existing HMS EFH, as warranted; 
modification of existing HAPCs or designation of new HAPCs for bluefin 
tuna and sandbar, lemon, and sand tiger sharks, as warranted; and 
analysis of fishing and non-fishing impacts on EFH by considering 
environmental and management changes and new information since 2009.
