Merchant Mariner Medical Advisory Committee; Vacancies, 62844-62845 [2018-26499]

Download as PDF khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES 62844 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 234 / Thursday, December 6, 2018 / Notices Upper Gulf of California sierra hook and line fishery; Upper Gulf of California chano trawl fishery, for small vessels; Upper Gulf of California curvina purse seine fishery; and Upper Gulf of California sardine/curvina purse seine fishery for both small and large vessels; have met the MMPA’s requirements to receive comparability findings. The Assistant Administrator has determined that the El Golfo de Santa Clara curvina rodeo-style gillnet fishery has not met the requirements to receive a comparability finding, will be denied such, and will remain subject to import restrictions in accordance with 50 CFR 216.24(h)(9). Although this comparability finding would allow the importation into the United States of fish and fish product derived from these non-gillnet fisheries operating in the Upper Gulf of California under the Government of Mexico’s jurisdiction, as noted above, CIT required the U.S. Government to ban all fish and fish products from said fisheries (effectuated through 83 FR 43792, August 28, 2018). Due to CIT’s injunction, imports of sierra, shrimp, chano, and curvina fish and fish products must continue to be accompanied by a Certification of Admissibility in accordance with the provisions of 50 CFR 216.24(h)(9) until a court of competent jurisdiction lifts the injunction and further notice from NMFS (See August 28, 2018 (83 FR 43792) for a list of HTS and instructions for the Certification of Admissibility). In accordance with 50 CFR 216.24(h)(8)(vii), a comparability finding will be terminated or revoked if the Assistant Administrator determines that the requirements of 50 CFR 216.24(h)(6) are no longer being met. Pursuant to 50 CFR 216.24(h)(8)(iv) the Assistant Administrator may specify the period for which a comparability finding is valid, particularly, when nations are requesting a finding during the exemption period. The comparability finding for the Government of Mexico’s affected fisheries included in this Federal Register notice will remain valid through January 1, 2022. Additionally, in accordance with 50 CFR 216.24(h)(9)(ii), the Government of Mexico can reapply for a comparability finding for the El Golfo de Santa Clara curvina rodeo-style gillnet fishery at any time. All other exempt and export fisheries operating under the control of the Government of Mexico are still subject to the five-year exemption period under 50 CFR 216.24(h)(2)(ii). Therefore, prior to the conclusion of the five-year exemption period, per the requirements of 50 CFR 216.24(h)(6), the VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:35 Dec 04, 2018 Jkt 247001 Government of Mexico, as is the case with all harvesting nations, must apply for and receive a comparability finding for all fisheries, including those in this Federal Register document, in order to export fish and fish products from those fisheries to the United States after January 1, 2022. Also, the Government of Mexico is still required to provide a progress report in accordance with 50 CFR 216.24(h)(10) for these fisheries and all other fisheries on its List of Foreign Fisheries. The Government of Mexico has requested that NMFS update its LOFF to reflect only those fisheries and gear types authorized to fish in the upper Gulf of California. NMFS will add these fisheries (both those that have and were denied a comparability finding) and remove all gillnet fisheries listed as operating in the upper Gulf of California from the List of Foreign Fisheries for Mexico. This action is taken in accordance with 50 CFR 216.24(h)(8)(vi). Dated: November 30, 2018. Samuel D. Rauch, III, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Regulatory Programs, National Marine Fisheries Service.
