National Medal of Technology and Innovation Nomination Evaluation Committee Meeting, 19053-19054 [2019-09107]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 86 / Friday, May 3, 2019 / Notices animals for removal. The FFU analyzed the data presented in 2015 by the states in the Bonneville Field Report for the number of California sea lions that could have been qualified for removal if the conditions of ‘‘five days observed and one salmonid kill’’ were changed to ‘‘five days observed or one salmonid kill.’’ Findings indicated that changing the criteria would have led to a 66 percent increase in the number of California sea lions added to the removal list. Changing criteria from ‘‘and’’ to ‘‘or’’ would therefore significantly improve the effectiveness of the state’s lethal removal program. amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Findings Based on the results of the FFU evaluation of the Task Force recommendation, on February 6, 2019, NMFS received a letter from the states and the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission requesting that we formally adopt the Task Force recommendation to change the ‘‘and’’ to ‘‘or’’ in Term and Condition 1 in the June 28, 2016, authorization. At the request of the states, NMFS adopts the Task Force recommendation to change the criteria in Term and Condition 1 of the state’s 2016 MMPA section 120 authorization. All other Terms and Conditions in the June 28, 2016, authorization remain unchanged. For the revised Term and Condition, NMFS incorporated provision ‘‘c’’ in Term and Condition 1 into both criteria ‘‘a’’ and ‘‘b’’ for clarity and readability. As required under section 7(a)(2) under the ESA, NMFS has previously completed formal consultation, and in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), in 2016 NMFS completed a supplemental environmental assessment (EA) to the 2008 EA with a finding of no significant impact. The proposed action (issuing the states a revised MMPA section 120 authorization) does not require reinitiation of consultation under ESA Section 7 (WCR–2016–4754) as none of the reinitiation requirements in 50 CFR 402.16 have been met. Similarly, we have determined that the existing 2016 Supplemental Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) remain valid because the new circumstances and/or information relevant to environmental concerns and bearing on the proposed action or its impacts are not significant under NEPA because the changes to the proposed action that are relevant to environmental considerations are not substantial, and because the proposed changes will have no direct, indirect, or cumulative effects and are within the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:41 May 02, 2019 Jkt 247001 range of effects on all resources considered in our 2016 EA and FONSI. In considering a state’s application to lethally remove pinnipeds, NMFS is also required, pursuant to section 120(b)(1) of the MMPA, to determine that individually identifiable pinnipeds are having a significant negative impact on the decline or recovery of at-risk salmonid fishery stocks. We determined that changing criteria from ‘‘and’’ to ‘‘or’’ would not change our determination that the MMPA section 120 individually identifiable and significant negative impact requirements in section 120(b)(1) have been met. The proposed criteria only change the process, not the standard, by which such animals are deemed qualified for removal, and is consistent with our previous MMPA section 120 decisions that pinnipeds collectively are having a significant negative impact on ESA-listed salmon and steelhead in the vicinity of Bonneville Dam, and are also deemed to be major contributors to detrimental impacts on ESA-listed salmonids because they have been documented to prey on ESA-listed salmonids, are repeat offenders, and persist in the action area after being exposed to nonlethal deterrence. Based on these requirements, considerations, and analyses, NMFS has determined that the requirements of section 120 of the MMPA have been met and it is therefore reasonable to issue a revised authorization to the states for the lethal removal in the vicinity of Bonneville Dam of individually identifiable predatory California sea lions through 2021.
