Evaluations of National Estuarine Research Reserves, 17639-17640 [2017-07346]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 69 / Wednesday, April 12, 2017 / Notices rehabilitation will be cared for by authorized persons and facilities. The conservation plan will mitigate the impacts of any incidental takes of ESA-listed sea turtles that are harmed due to interactions with other fisheries in the area. Specifically, GSML will remove, taking into account any human safety considerations, any turtles it encounters ensnared in fishing lines, nets, and trap ropes. If any of these sea turtles require care, GSML will transport them to a rehabilitation facility. The applicant’s conservation plan did not include procedures for handling Gulf sturgeon. However, the applicant will follow specific handling procedures for Gulf sturgeon to minimize impacts to this species in the unlikely event an interaction should occur. This conservation plan will be funded through GSML revenues derived from the sale of the marine fish, invertebrates, and algae collected via trawling; donations from membership in its aquarium; and grants and contracts. GSML considered and rejected two other alternatives: (1) Reduced trawl times; and (2) alternative methods. GSML cannot practicably further reduce the trawl times or employ alternative methodologies. National Environmental Policy Act mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA and the National Environmental Policy Act regulations (40 CFR 1506.6). NMFS will evaluate the application, associated documents, and submitted comments to determine whether the application meets the requirements of the ESA Section 10(a)(1)(B) permitting process. If it is determined that the requirements are met, a permit will be issued for incidental takes of ESA-listed sea turtles and Gulf sturgeon under the jurisdiction of NMFS. The final permit determinations will not be completed until after the end of the 30-day comment period and will fully consider all public comments received during the comment period. NMFS will publish a record of its final action in the Federal Register. Dated: April 7, 2017. Angela Somma, Acting Deputy Director, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.

NOAA, through its National Ocean Service, Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, is replicating a study done in 2010–2011 on users and non-users of Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary (GRNMS) off the coast of Georgia. The study will support analysis of its current regulations to support management plan revision, which could include changes in regulations. The study will collect information to assess recreational uses of GRNMS and surrounding areas off the coast of Georgia, demographic profiles, and attitudes on GRNMS current regulations, especially the research only area, which displaced recreational fishing. In addition, user perceptions of the conditions of GRNMS natural resources/environment will be obtained. PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17639 II.
