[FR Doc. 2019–28471 Filed 1–3–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–22–P VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:53 Jan 03, 2020 Jkt 250001 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [RTID 0648–XA003] NMFS has issued permits for seven hatchery programs: Chelan Falls Summer/Fall Chinook Salmon, Wenatchee Summer/Fall Chinook Salmon, Methow Summer/Fall Chinook Salmon, Wells Hatchery Summer/Fall Chinook Salmon, Priest Rapids Fall Chinook Salmon, Ringold Springs Fall Chinook Salmon, and Wells Complex Summer Steelhead. These hatchery programs are intended to contribute to the survival and recovery of Upper Columbia River steelhead and enhance fishing opportunity on hatchery-origin summer/fall and fall Chinook salmon and steelhead returns. The summer/fall and fall Chinook programs propagate an unlisted species, and thus only have incidental effects on listed species—the permits for these programs are issued under ESA section 10(a)(1)(B). The steelhead program uses natural-origin fish in the broodstock, and the permit for this program is issued under ESA section 10(a)(1)(A). Description of the programs was provided in Hatchery and Genetics Management Plans (HGMPs) submitted by the applicants. NMFS has analyzed the effects of the hatchery programs on salmon and steelhead listed under the ESA, and has concluded that the hatchery programs would not appreciably reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery of ESA-listed species. Authorization of the activities depends upon implementation of all of the monitoring, evaluation, reporting tasks or assignments, and enforcement activities included in the permits.

Such exports require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 824a(e)). On March 24, 2015, DOE issued Order No. EA–403, which authorized Frontera Marketing, LLC. to transmit electric energy from the United States to Mexico as a power marketer for a five-year term using the existing facilities permitted in PP–206 and other international transmission facilities appropriate for open access.
