On behalf of the Secretary, we implemented regulations at 50 CFR 18.23(f) for Alaska Natives harvesting polar bears, northern sea otters, and Pacific walruses. These regulations enable us to gather data on the Alaska Native subsistence and handicraft harvest and on the biology of polar bears, northern sea otters, and Pacific walruses in Alaska to determine what effect such take may be having on these populations. The regulations also provide us with a means of monitoring the disposition of the harvest to ensure that any commercial use of products created from these species meets the criteria set forth in section 101(b) of the MMPA. We use three forms to collect the information: FWS Form 3–2414 (Polar Bear Tagging Certificates), FWS Form 3–2415 (Walrus Tagging Certificates), and FWS Form 3–2416 (Sea Otter Tagging Certificates). The information we collect includes, but is not limited to: • Date of kill. • Sex of the animal. • Kill location. • Age of the animal (i.e., adult, subadult, cub, or pup). • Form of transportation used to make the kill of polar bears. • Amount of time (i.e., hours/days hunted) spent hunting polar bears. • Type of take (live–killed or beach– found) for walrus. • Number of otters present in and number of otters harvested from pod. • Condition of the polar bear and whether or not bear cubs were present. • Name of the hunter or possessor of the specified parts at the time of marking, tagging, and reporting.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    Under section 101(b) of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 
(MMPA), as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361-1407), Alaska Natives residing in 
Alaska and dwelling on the coast of the North Pacific or Arctic Oceans 
may harvest polar bears, northern sea otters, and Pacific walruses for 
subsistence or handicraft purposes. Section 109(i) of the MMPA 
authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe marking, tagging, 
and reporting regulations

[[Page 11599]]

applicable to the Alaska Native subsistence and handicraft take.
    On behalf of the Secretary, we implemented regulations at 50 CFR 
18.23(f) for Alaska Natives harvesting polar bears, northern sea 
otters, and Pacific walruses. These regulations enable us to gather 
data on the Alaska Native subsistence and handicraft harvest and on the 
biology of polar bears, northern sea otters, and Pacific walruses in 
Alaska to determine what effect such take may be having on these 
populations. The regulations also provide us with a means of monitoring 
the disposition of the harvest to ensure that any commercial use of 
products created from these species meets the criteria set forth in 
section 101(b) of the MMPA. We use three forms to collect the 
information: FWS Form 3-2414 (Polar Bear Tagging Certificates), FWS 
Form 3-2415 (Walrus Tagging Certificates), and FWS Form 3-2416 (Sea 
Otter Tagging Certificates). The information we collect includes, but 
is not limited to:
     Date of kill.
     Sex of the animal.
     Kill location.
     Age of the animal (i.e., adult, subadult, cub, or pup).
     Form of transportation used to make the kill of polar 
bears.
     Amount of time (i.e., hours/days hunted) spent hunting 
polar bears.
     Type of take (live-killed or beach-found) for walrus.
     Number of otters present in and number of otters harvested 
from pod.
     Condition of the polar bear and whether or not bear cubs 
were present.
     Name of the hunter or possessor of the specified parts at 
the time of marking, tagging, and reporting.
    We are proposing to use FWS Form 3-2406 (Registration of Certain 
Dead Marine Mammal Hard Parts) to record the collection of bones, 
teeth, or ivory of dead marine mammals by non-Native and Natives not 
eligible to harvest marine mammals under the MMPA. It is legal to 
collect such parts from a beach or from land within a quarter of a mile 
of the ocean (50 CFR 18.26). The information we collect will include, 
but is not limited to:
     Date and location found.
     Age, sex, and size of the animal.
     Tag numbers.
     Name, address, phone number, and birthdate of the 
collector.
