North Pacific Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 27251-27252 [2017-12257]

Download as PDF 27251 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 113 / Wednesday, June 14, 2017 / Notices The specified activity is not expected to impact rates of recruitment or survival and will therefore not result in population-level impacts. Based on the analysis contained herein of the likely effects of the specified activity on marine mammals and their habitat, and taking into consideration the implementation of the monitoring and mitigation measures, NMFS finds that the total marine mammal take from the activity will have a negligible impact on all affected marine mammal species or stocks. Small Numbers As noted above, only small numbers of incidental take may be authorized under Section 101(a)(5)(D) of the MMPA for specified activities other than military readiness activities. The MMPA does not define small numbers and so, in practice, NMFS compares the number of individuals taken to the most appropriate estimation of the relevant species or stock size in our determination of whether an authorization is limited to small numbers of marine mammals. The numbers of animals authorized to be taken would be considered small relative to the relevant stocks or populations (<0.01 percent for both species as shown in Table 7) even if each estimated taking occurred to a new individual. However, the likelihood that each take would occur to a new individual is extremely low. Further, these takes are likely to occur only within some small portion of the overall regional stock.

NMFS has prepared a CE memorandum for the record. Unmitigable Adverse Impact Analysis and Determination There are no relevant subsistence uses of the affected marine mammal stocks or species implicated by this action. Therefore, NMFS has determined that the total taking of affected species or stocks would not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of such species or stocks for taking for subsistence purposes. As a result of these determinations, NMFS has issued an IHA to Chevron for the harassment of small numbers of harbor seals and California sea lions incidental to the Richmond Refinery Long Wharf Maintenance and Efficiency Project in San Francisco Bay, California effective for one year beginning January 1, 2018, provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring and reporting requirements are incorporated. mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Endangered Species Act (ESA) Issuance of an MMPA authorization requires compliance with the ESA. No incidental take of ESA-listed species is authorized or expected to result from this activity. Therefore, NMFS has determined that consultation under section 7 of the ESA is not required for this action. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Issuance of an MMPA authorization requires compliance with NEPA. NMFS has established categorical exclusion (CE) status under NEPA for this action. As such, we have determined the issuance of the IHA is consistent with categories of activities identified in CE B4 of the Companion Manual for NAO 216–6A and we have not identified any VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 13, 2017 Jkt 241001 Authorization Dated: June 9, 2017.
