Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 45203 [2020-16178]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 144 / Monday, July 27, 2020 / Notices Needs and Uses: NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) manages the Sea Turtle Disentanglement Network (STDN) to respond to sea turtle entanglement in active or discarded fishing gear (in particular those involving the vertical line of fixed gear fisheries), marine debris, or other line in the marine environment. Entanglement has the potential to cause serious injury or mortality, which would negatively impact the recovery of endangered and threatened sea turtle populations. The STDN’s goals are to increase reporting, to reduce serious injury and mortality to sea turtles, and to collect information that can be used for mitigation of these threats. As there is limited observer coverage of fixed gear fisheries, the STDN data are invaluable to NMFS in understanding the threat of entanglement and working towards mitigation. Affected Public: Individuals or households; Business or other for-profit organizations; Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local, or Tribal government; Federal government. Frequency: Variable depending on reports of entanglement incidents; up to 78 cases annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: 16 U.S.C. 35, Endangered Species Act of 1973.
