SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject modification to Permit No. 20314, issued on March 29, 2017 (82 FR 16996), is requested under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). Permit No. 20314 authorizes the permit holder to conduct scientific research on Atlantic sturgeon to identify the overall health of the Chesapeake Bay discreet population segment, monitor reproductive success, spawning adult and juvenile abundance in tributaries, and evaluate movement patterns and habitat preferences in and between tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Sampling gear includes anchored/ floating gillnets and trawl nets. After capture, fish are externally tagged, tissue sampled, measured, and weighed prior to release. A subset of fish are fin ray sampled and internally tagged with acoustic devices. Early life stages of Atlantic sturgeon are lethally collected to document occurrence of spawning in river systems. Up to two Atlantic sturgeon juvenile and one adult/subadult life stages may unintentionally die during research annually. Due to an increase in the abundance of juvenile year classes of Atlantic sturgeon in the James River and to accommodate improvements in population abundance and index estimates, the permit holder is requesting an increase in the numbers of this juvenile life stage that may be captured, marked, measured, weighed, photoed, and released from 100 to 500 animals, annually. The permit expires March 31, 2027. Dated: April 23, 2020. Julia Marie Harrison, Chief, Permits and Conservation Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.
