SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The MMPA prohibits the ‘‘take’’ of marine mammals, with certain exceptions. Sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) direct the Secretary of Commerce (as delegated to NMFS) to allow, upon request, the incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographical region if certain findings are made and either regulations are issued or, if the taking is limited to harassment, a notice of a proposed incidental take authorization may be provided to the public for review. Authorization for incidental takings shall be granted if NMFS finds that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s) and will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for taking for subsistence uses (where relevant). Further, NMFS must prescribe the permissible methods of taking and other ‘‘means of effecting the least practicable adverse impact’’ on the affected species or stocks and their habitat, paying particular attention to rookeries, mating grounds, and areas of similar significance, and on the availability of the species or stocks for taking for certain subsistence uses (referred to in shorthand as ‘‘mitigation’’); and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of the takings are set forth. The definitions of all applicable MMPA statutory terms cited above are included in the relevant sections below. National Environmental Policy Act To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and NOAA Administrative Order (NAO) 216–6A, NMFS must review our proposed action (i.e., the issuance of an IHA) with respect to potential impacts on the human environment. This action is consistent with categories of activities identified in Categorical Exclusion B4 (IHAs with no anticipated serious injury or mortality) of the Companion Manual for NOAA Administrative Order 216– 6A, which do not individually or cumulatively have the potential for significant impacts on the quality of the human environment and for which we have not identified any extraordinary circumstances that would preclude this categorical exclusion.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Section 315 of the National Marine Sanctuaries Act (NMSA) (16 
U.S.C. 1445A) allows the Secretary of Commerce to establish advisory 
councils to advise and make recommendations regarding the designation 
and management of national marine sanctuaries. Executive Order 13178 
similarly established a Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve Council pursuant 
to the NMSA for the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem 
Reserve. In this Supplementary Information section, NOAA provides 
details regarding the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, the role 
of advisory councils, and contact information for each site.

Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS)

    ONMS serves as the trustee for a network of underwater parks 
encompassing more than 600,000 square miles of marine and Great Lakes 
waters from Washington state to the Florida

[[Page 23765]]

Keys, and from Lake Huron to American Samoa. The network includes a 
system of 14 national marine sanctuaries and Papahanaumokuakea and Rose 
Atoll marine national monuments. National marine sanctuaries protect 
our nation's most vital coastal and marine natural and cultural 
resources, and through active research, management, and public 
engagement, sustain healthy environments that are the foundation for 
thriving communities and stable economies.
    One of the many ways ONMS ensures public participation in the 
designation and management of national marine sanctuaries is through 
the formation of advisory councils. Advisory councils are community-
based advisory groups established to provide advice and recommendations 
to ONMS on issues including management, science, service, and 
stewardship; and to serve as liaisons between their constituents in the 
community and the site. Pursuant to Section 315(a) of the National 
Marine Sanctuaries Act, 16 U.S.C. 1445A(a), advisory councils are 
exempt from the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. 
Additional information on ONMS and its advisory councils can be found 
at https://sanctuaries.noaa.gov.

Advisory Council Membership

    Under Section 315 of the NMSA, advisory council members may be 
appointed from among: (1) Persons employed by federal or state agencies 
with expertise in management of natural resources; (2) members of 
relevant regional fishery management councils; and (3) representatives 
of local user groups, conservation and other public interest 
organizations, scientific organizations, educational organizations, or 
others interested in the protection and multiple use management of 
sanctuary resources. For the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef 
Ecosystem Reserve Advisory Council, Section 5(f) of Executive Order 
13178 (as amended by Executive Order 13196) specifically identifies 
member and representative categories.
    The charter for each advisory council defines the number and type 
of seats and positions on the council; however, as a general matter, 
available seats could include: Conservation, education, research, 
fishing, whale watching, diving and other recreational activities, 
boating and shipping, tourism, harbors and ports, maritime business, 
agriculture, maritime heritage, and citizen-at-large.
    For each of the advisory councils, applicants are chosen based upon 
their particular expertise and experience in relation to the seat for 
which they are applying; community and professional affiliations; views 
regarding the protection and management of marine or Great Lakes 
resources; and possibly the length of residence in the area affected by 
the site. Applicants chosen as members or alternates should expect to 
serve two- or three-year terms, pursuant to the charter of the specific 
national marine sanctuary advisory council or Northwestern Hawaiian 
Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve Advisory Council. More information 
on advisory council membership and processes, and materials related to 
the purpose, policies, and operational requirements for advisory 
councils can be found in the charter for a particular advisory council

for failure to comply with a collection of information subject to the
