Download as PDF 44602 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 165 / Monday, August 26, 2019 / Notices was submitted to NMFS in November of 2018 under the ESA Tribal 4(d) Rule, and describes timing, location, harvest impact limits, and gear. A variety of monitoring and evaluation is included in the TRMP. As required, NMFS took public comments on its recommended determination for how the plan addresses the criteria in § 223.203(b)(4) prior to making its final determination. Dated: August 20, 2019. Cathryn E. Tortorici, Chief, Endangered Species Act Interagency Cooperation Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service. Discussion of the Biological Analysis Underlying the Determination Patent and Trademark Office The TRMP defines maximum impact rates for natural-origin steelhead specific to each major population group within the Snake River Steelhead Distinct Population Segment. These maximum impact rates are part of a basin-wide framework with which all fishery managers have agreed to coordinate so that impacts do not exceed these maximums. Furthermore, if abundances fall below a major population group-specific Critical Abundance Threshold, management actions (e.g., time-area closures) will be taken to reduce impacts. NMFS has analyzed the effects of the TRMP on ESA-listed salmon and steelhead species and has concluded that the TRMP would not appreciable reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery of ESA-listed species, while providing for the proposed tribal treaty harvest opportunities. Our determination depends upon implementation of all of the monitoring, evaluation, reporting tasks or assignments, and enforcement activities included in the TRMP. Reporting and inclusion of new information derived from research, monitoring, and evaluation activities described in the plan provide assurance that performance standards will be achieved in future seasons. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Summary of Comments Received in the Response to the Proposed Evaluation and Pending Determination NMFS published notice of its Proposed Evaluation and Pending Determination (PEPD) on the plan for public review and comment on May 7, 2019 (84 FR 19904), as required by the Tribal 4(d) Rule.
