NMFS issues permits based on findings that such permits: (1) Were applied for in good faith; (2) if granted and exercised would not operate to the disadvantage of the listed species that are the subject of the permit; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policy set forth in section 2 of the ESA. The authority to take ESAlisted species is subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Under a Safe Harbor Agreement, participating landowners voluntarily undertake management activities on their property to enhance, restore, or maintain habitat benefiting species listed under the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). Safe Harbor Agreements, and the subsequent Enhancement of Survival Permits that are issued pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA, encourage private and other non-Federal property owners to implement conservation efforts for listed species by assuring property owners that they will not be subjected to increased propertyuse restrictions as a result of their efforts to attract listed species to their property and increase the numbers or distribution of these species already on their property. Application requirements and issuance criteria for Enhancement of Survival Permits through Safe Harbor Agreements are found in 50 CFR 222.308(b), 222.308(c), and the Announcement of Final Safe Harbor Policy published on June 17, 1999 (64 FR 32717). These permits allow any necessary future incidental take of covered species above the mutually agreed-upon baseline conditions for those species in accordance with the terms and conditions of the permits and accompanying agreements. An interested party may submit data, views, arguments, or a request for a hearing with respect to the action proposed in the application or related matters.

The Enhancement of Survival Permit will facilitate implementation of the Agreement that is expected to promote the recovery of CCC Coho Salmon and CCC Steelhead on nonFederal property within Porter Creek on the Applicant’s MacMurray Ranch. Porter Creek is a tributary to the Russian River in Sonoma County, California. The proposed duration of the Agreement and the associated Enhancement of Survival Permit is three years. The proposed Enhancement of Survival Permit would authorize the incidental taking of CCC Coho Salmon and CCC Steelhead that may be associated with covered activities including beneficial management activities (i.e., reservoir releases) and the return of the enrolled property to baseline conditions at the end of the Agreement, as defined in the Agreement. The Agreement specifies the beneficial management activities to be carried out on the enrolled property and the schedule for implementing those activities. The Agreement requires that the Applicant maintain baseline condition for the covered species habitat on the enrolled property. NMFS has reviewed the baseline condition for the enrolled property as it is defined in the Agreement. The Agreement also contains a monitoring component that requires the Applicant to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of the Agreement, and that the baseline levels of habitat for the covered species occurs on the enrolled property. Results of the monitoring efforts will be provided to NMFS by the Applicant in an annual report for the duration of the three-year permit term. Upon all parties’ execution of this Agreement, and consistent with the NMFS’ Safe Harbor Policy (64 FR 32717), NMFS will issue an Enhancement of Survival Permit to the Applicant. The Enhancement of Survival Permit will authorize the Applicant to take CCC Coho Salmon and CCC Steelhead incidental to the implementation of the covered activities specified in the Agreement, incidental to other lawful uses of the enrolled property, and to return to baseline conditions if desired at the end of the Agreement.

Needs and Uses: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) deploys fishery observers on United States (U.S.) commercial fishing vessels and to fish processing plants in order to collect biological and economic data. NMFS has at least one observer program in each of its five Regions. These observer programs provide the most reliable and effective method for obtaining information that is critical for the conservation and management of living marine resources. Observer programs primarily obtain information through direct observations by employees or agents of NMFS; and such observations are not subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). However, observer programs also collect the following information that requires clearance under the PRA: (1) Standardized questions of fishing vessel captains/crew or fish processing plant managers/staff, which include gear and performance questions, safety questions, and trip costs, crew size and other economic questions; (2) questions asked by observer program staff/contractors to plan observer deployments; (3) forms that are completed by observers and that fishing vessel captains are asked to review and sign; (4) questionnaires to evaluate observer performance; and (5) a form to certify that a fisherman is the permit holder when requesting observer data from the observer on the vessel. NMFS seeks to renew OMB PRA clearance for these information collections. The information collected will be used to: (1) Monitor catch and bycatch in federally managed commercial fisheries; (2) understand the population status and trends of fish stocks and protected species, as well as the interactions between them; (3) determine the quantity and distribution of net benefits derived from living marine resources; (4) predict the biological, ecological, and economic impacts of existing management action and proposed management options; and (5) ensure that the observer programs can safely and efficiently collect the information required for the previous four uses. In particular, these biological and economic data collection programs contribute to legally mandated analyses required under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), Executive Order 12866 (E.O. 12866), as E:\FR\FM\31OCN1.SGM 31OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Species Covered in This Notice

    The proposed Enhancement of Survival Permit and Agreement are 
intended to promote the survival and recovery of endangered CCC Coho 
Salmon and threatened CCC Steelhead.

Authority

    Enhancement of Survival Permits are issued in accordance with 
section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and regulations 
governing ESA-listed fish and wildlife permits (50 CFR parts 222-227). 
NMFS issues permits based on findings that such permits: (1) Were 
applied for in good faith; (2) if granted and exercised would not 
operate to the disadvantage of the listed species that are the subject 
of the permit; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policy set 
forth in section 2 of the ESA. The authority to take ESA-listed species 
is subject to conditions set forth in the permits.
    Under a Safe Harbor Agreement, participating landowners voluntarily 
undertake management activities on their property to enhance, restore, 
or maintain habitat benefiting species listed under the ESA (16 U.S.C. 
1531 et seq.). Safe Harbor Agreements, and the subsequent Enhancement 
of Survival Permits that are issued pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of 
the ESA, encourage private and other non-Federal property owners to 
implement conservation efforts for listed species by assuring property 
owners that they will not be subjected to increased property-use 
restrictions as a result of their efforts to attract listed species to 
their property and increase the numbers or distribution of these 
species already on their property. Application requirements and 
issuance criteria for Enhancement of Survival Permits through Safe 
Harbor Agreements are found in 50 CFR 222.308(b), 222.308(c), and the 
Announcement of Final Safe Harbor Policy published on June 17, 1999 (64 
FR 32717). These permits allow any necessary future incidental take of 
covered species above the mutually agreed-upon baseline conditions for 
those species in accordance with the terms and conditions of the 
permits and accompanying agreements.
    An interested party may submit data, views, arguments, or a request 
for a hearing with respect to the action proposed in the application or 
related matters. Anyone requesting a hearing on a matter pursuant to 
this notice should set out the specific reasons why a hearing on that 
matter would be appropriate (see ADDRESSES). Such hearings are held at 
the discretion of the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NMFS.

Applications Received

Permit 22362

    E. & J. Gallo Winery, (Applicant) is requesting that NMFS issue it 
an Enhancement of Survival Permit and approve an associated proposed 
Agreement that it developed with NMFS. The Enhancement of Survival 
Permit will facilitate implementation of the Agreement that is expected 
to promote the recovery of CCC Coho Salmon and CCC Steelhead on non-
Federal property within Porter Creek on the Applicant's MacMurray 
Ranch. Porter Creek is a tributary to the Russian River in Sonoma 
County, California. The proposed duration of the Agreement and the 
associated Enhancement of Survival Permit is three years. The proposed 
Enhancement of Survival Permit would authorize the incidental taking of 
CCC Coho Salmon and CCC Steelhead that may be associated with covered 
activities including beneficial management activities (i.e., reservoir 
releases) and the return of the enrolled property to baseline 
conditions at the end of the Agreement, as defined in the Agreement. 
The Agreement specifies the beneficial management activities to be 
carried out on the enrolled property and the schedule for implementing 
those activities.
    The Agreement requires that the Applicant maintain baseline 
condition for the covered species habitat on the enrolled property. 
NMFS has reviewed the baseline condition for the enrolled property as 
it is defined in the Agreement. The Agreement also contains a 
monitoring component that requires the Applicant to ensure compliance 
with the terms and conditions of the Agreement, and that the baseline 
levels of habitat for the covered species occurs on the enrolled 
property. Results of the monitoring efforts will be provided to NMFS by 
the Applicant in an annual report for the duration of the three-year 
permit term.
    Upon all parties' execution of this Agreement, and consistent with 
the NMFS' Safe Harbor Policy (64 FR 32717), NMFS will issue an 
Enhancement of Survival Permit to the Applicant. The Enhancement of 
Survival Permit will authorize the Applicant to take CCC Coho Salmon 
and CCC Steelhead incidental to the implementation of the covered 
activities specified in the Agreement, incidental to other lawful uses 
of the enrolled property, and to return to baseline conditions if 
desired at the end of the Agreement. In addition to meeting other 
criteria, actions to be performed under the Enhancement of Survival 
Permit

[[Page 54722]]

must not jeopardize the existence of Federally listed species.
    This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS 
will evaluate the application, associated documents, and comments 
submitted to determine whether the application meets the applicable 
requirements of section 10(a) of the ESA and Federal regulations. NMFS' 
decision on whether to issue the permit will not be made until after 
the end of the 30-day comment period.
    NMFS will publish notice of its final action in the Federal 
Register.
