The researchers do not intend to kill any listed fish, but some may die as an inadvertent result of the research. 19400–3R ICF Consulting is seeking to renew for five years a research permit that currently allows them to take juvenile natural and listed hatchery SRWR and CVSR Chinook salmon, CCV steelhead and juvenile green sturgeon in Suisan Bay, CA. The purposes of the research are to (1) determine the spatial and temporal distribution and abundance of juvenile Chinook salmon in shallowwater habitats and compare observed patterns to predictions from habitat suitability models, and (2) provide baseline fish and invertebrate samples for a Before-After Control-Impact (BACI) study design to assess the impact of a planned breach at the Tule Red restoration site. The applicant proposes to capture fish with seines (beach, Lampara), nets (fyke), and trawls (midwater, otter). This study would result in the capture, handle, and release of juvenile green sturgeon and intentional directed mortality of juvenile salmon for isotopic and otolith analysis. jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES 22270 The Wiyot tribe is seeking a five-year research permit that would allow them to annually take juvenile NC steelhead in the South Fork of the Eel River, CA. The purposes of the research are to (1) to evaluate the impacts of Sacramento pikeminnow, a non-native predator, on Pacific lamprey, steelhead, and other native species, and (2) to develop and test methods for pikeminnow population suppression in terms of catch-per-unit-effort and cost-per-fishcaptured. The applicant proposes to capture fish with backpack and boat electrofishing, fyke net, seine, baited frame traps, dip netting and hook-andline and to observe fish during snorkel surveys. A subset of captured fish would be anesthetized, measured, weighed, have a tissue sample taken, allowed to recover, and released. The researchers do not intend to kill any listed fish, but some may die as an inadvertent result of the research. 22303 The NOAA Fisheries California Central Valley office is seeking a fiveyear research permit that would allow them to annually take adult SRWR, CVSR, and CC Chinook salmon, subadult and adult green sturgeon. The purpose of the research is to test the use VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:15 Jun 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 of DIDSON cameras to characterize the physical interaction between green sturgeon and the halibut bottom trawl fishery (CHBT) operating out of Half Moon and San Francisco bays. In a previous cooperative study conducted with CHBT fishermen, NOAA observers, NMFS Science Center staff, and the CDFW, satellite tags were used to measure green sturgeon post-release survival in the halibut fishery. In this study, researchers would test the use of DIDSON cameras in the CHBT nets to characterize the physical interaction between green sturgeon and CHBT nets. Study results would be used to evaluate methods to minimize gear interactions and bycatch of green sturgeon. The applicant proposes to capture fish with a bottom trawl. Captured green sturgeon would be captured, handled and released. The researchers would avoid adult salmonids, but some may be encountered as an unintentional result of sampling. The researchers do not intend to kill any listed fish, but some may die as an inadvertent result of the research. 22700 The Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Project (MBSTP) is seeking a five-year research permit that would allow them to annually take adult CC coho and CCC steelhead in the San Lorenzo River, CA. The purpose of the research is to gather genetic and life history data on CCC steelhead. This research will contribute to large-scale salmonid monitoring programs on the San Lorenzo River that are currently being implemented by the City and County of Santa Cruz. The applicant proposes to capture fish at the Felton Diversion Facility weir. Captured adult steelhead would be measured, weighed, PIT tagged, have a tissue sample taken, allowed to recover, and released. Adult coho would be captured, handled and released. The researchers do not intend to kill any listed fish, but some may die as an inadvertent result of the research. 22939 Tim Salamunovich of TRPA Fish Biologist is seeking a 5-year research permit that would allow him to annually take juvenile SRWR and CVSR Chinook salmon, CCV steelhead and green sturgeon in a central valley delta wetland area known as The Big Ditch on the Peterson Ranch in eastern Solano County, California. The purpose of this research is to collect seasonal presence/ absence and relative abundance data to document seasonal fish use throughout the project area in order to document the baseline conditions prior to restoration efforts. The applicant PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 proposes to capture fish with beach seines and minnow traps. Captured fish would be anesthetized, measured, weighed, allowed to recover, and released. The researchers do not intend to kill any listed fish, but some may die as an inadvertent result of the research. Authority Scientific research permits are issued in accordance with section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and regulations governing listed fish and wildlife permits (50 CFR 222–226). NMFS issues permits based on findings that such permits: (1) Are 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 of section 2 of the ESA. The authority to take listed species is subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Anyone requesting a hearing on an application listed in this notice should set out the specific reasons why a hearing on that application would be appropriate (see ADDRESSES). Such hearings are held at the discretion of the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NMFS. Applications Received This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the applications, associated documents, and comments submitted to determine whether the applications meet the requirements of section 10(a) of the ESA and Federal regulations. The final permit decisions 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. Dated: June 21, 2019.
