ACTION: Notice; request for comments. AGENCY: The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Greater Atlantic Region, NMFS, has made a preliminary determination that an Exempted Fishing Permit application contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration. This Exempted Fishing Permit would allow eight commercial fishing vessels to participate in a beam trawl survey in and around the South Fork Wind Farm work area, under the direction of the Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation. Regulations under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notice to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on Exempted Fishing Permit applications. DATES: Comments must be received on or before October 1, 2020. ADDRESSES: You may submit written comments by either of the following methods: • Email: nmfs.gar.efp@noaa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation (CFRF) submitted a complete application for an Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) in support of a South Fork Wind Farm Beam Trawl Monitoring Survey. The EFP would temporarily exempt eight commercial fishing vessels from minimum mesh size requirements for vessels using trawl gear at 50 CFR 648.80(b)(2)(i), possession limits and minimum size SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\16SEN1.SGM 16SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 180 / Wednesday, September 16, 2020 / Notices requirements specified in § 648 subsections B and D through O; and lobster possession limits and minimum size requirements specified in § 697.20, for sampling purposes only. Under this EFP, CFRF would conduct up to 24 1-day survey trips September 2020 through July 2022 (1 trip per month). Prior to the first survey trip, researchers would conduct a scouting trip to visit proposed tow areas. During each survey trip, participating vessels would complete three tows in each of three sampling areas in Southern New England: One sampling area inside the South Fork Wind Farm work area southwest of Martha’s Vineyard (Figure 1), and two reference sampling areas adjacent to the South Fork Wind Farm work area. This would total 9 tows completed per month, and 216 tows completed under the EFP. Surveys would not occur in any areas that are closed to fishing. Participating vessels would complete all survey tows using a 3-m beam trawl with a 4.75-inch (12.06-cm) mesh codend and a 1-inch (2.54-cm) knotless codend liner. The mouth of the trawl would be equipped with rock chains to prevent larger rocks from entering the net and damaging the catch or the gear. Each survey tow would last for 20 minutes in duration once the gear is fully deployed. A sampling team consisting of a lead Research Biologist and an assistant sea sampler would direct sampling activities on all survey trips. The sampling team would collect hydrographic data (water temperature, dissolved oxygen concentration, and salinity) for near-surface and nearbottom waters at the end of each sampling string. Visual observations on sea state and weather conditions would also be recorded during each sampling session. After each survey tow, researchers would collect data on: • Species diversity; • Catch per unit effort (abundance (count) and biomass (weight, kg) per tow); and • Length frequency distribution for dominant species and protected species. After each tow, researchers would sort catch by species, and all individuals would be counted. In order to minimize mortality, any protected species interactions would be prioritized during catch sorting and processing. Researchers would measure up to 50 individuals of each species per tow, as well as all protected species. Stomach content analysis will be performed for up to 5 individuals of commerciallyimportant species (monkfish, winter skate, gadids, and black sea bass), or up VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:20 Sep 15, 2020 Jkt 250001 PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\16SEN1.SGM 16SEN1 EN16SE20.000</GPH> jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 57834 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 180 / Wednesday, September 16, 2020 / Notices to 10 total individuals per tow, to determine pre-construction prey composition. Each individual would be measured and weighed to assess relative condition before the stomach is removed. All prey items in the stomach would be identified to the lowest possible identification level, counted, and weighed. Otoliths would be collected from all fish that are sacrificed for biological sampling. Researchers would take photographs of all species encountered in each tow for verification purposes. Estimated catch of federally regulated species under this EFP is shown in Table 1. Catch estimates were derived based on survey data from a previous beam trawl survey to evaluate demersal fish and invertebrate communities in and around the South Fork Wind Farm. Researchers do not anticipate catching 57835 any Atlantic cod under this EFP. However, if cod is caught, each individual would be assessed for reproductive stage and spawning condition, and all cod would be sacrificed for biological sampling. No catch would be landed for sale under this EFP, and all individuals (except those sacrificed for biological sampling) would be returned to the water after being processed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation 
(CFRF) submitted a complete application for an Exempted Fishing Permit 
(EFP) in support of a South Fork Wind Farm Beam Trawl Monitoring 
Survey. The EFP would temporarily exempt eight commercial fishing 
vessels from minimum mesh size requirements for vessels using trawl 
gear at 50 CFR 648.80(b)(2)(i), possession limits and minimum size

[[Page 57834]]

requirements specified in Sec.  648 subsections B and D through O; and 
lobster possession limits and minimum size requirements specified in 
Sec.  697.20, for sampling purposes only.
    Under this EFP, CFRF would conduct up to 24 1-day survey trips 
September 2020 through July 2022 (1 trip per month). Prior to the first 
survey trip, researchers would conduct a scouting trip to visit 
proposed tow areas. During each survey trip, participating vessels 
would complete three tows in each of three sampling areas in Southern 
New England: One sampling area inside the South Fork Wind Farm work 
area southwest of Martha's Vineyard (Figure 1), and two reference 
sampling areas adjacent to the South Fork Wind Farm work area. This 
would total 9 tows completed per month, and 216 tows completed under 
the EFP. Surveys would not occur in any areas that are closed to 
fishing.

    Participating vessels would complete all survey tows using a 3-m 
beam trawl with a 4.75-inch (12.06-cm) mesh codend and a 1-inch (2.54-
cm) knotless codend liner. The mouth of the trawl would be equipped 
with rock chains to prevent larger rocks from entering the net and 
damaging the catch or the gear. Each survey tow would last for 20 
minutes in duration once the gear is fully deployed.
    A sampling team consisting of a lead Research Biologist and an 
assistant sea sampler would direct sampling activities on all survey 
trips. The sampling team would collect hydrographic data (water 
temperature, dissolved oxygen concentration, and salinity) for near-
surface and near-bottom waters at the end of each sampling string. 
Visual observations on sea state and weather conditions would also be 
recorded during each sampling session.
    After each survey tow, researchers would collect data on:
     Species diversity;
     Catch per unit effort (abundance (count) and biomass 
(weight, kg) per tow); and
     Length frequency distribution for dominant species and 
protected species.
    After each tow, researchers would sort catch by species, and all 
individuals would be counted. In order to minimize mortality, any 
protected species interactions would be prioritized during catch 
sorting and processing. Researchers would measure up to 50 individuals 
of each species per tow, as well as all protected species. Stomach 
content analysis will be performed for up to 5 individuals of 
commercially-important species (monkfish, winter skate, gadids, and 
black sea bass), or up

[[Page 57835]]

to 10 total individuals per tow, to determine pre-construction prey 
composition. Each individual would be measured and weighed to assess 
relative condition before the stomach is removed. All prey items in the 
stomach would be identified to the lowest possible identification 
level, counted, and weighed. Otoliths would be collected from all fish 
that are sacrificed for biological sampling. Researchers would take 
photographs of all species encountered in each tow for verification 
purposes.
    Estimated catch of federally regulated species under this EFP is 
shown in Table 1. Catch estimates were derived based on survey data 
from a previous beam trawl survey to evaluate demersal fish and 
invertebrate communities in and around the South Fork Wind Farm. 
Researchers do not anticipate catching any Atlantic cod under this EFP. 
However, if cod is caught, each individual would be assessed for 
reproductive stage and spawning condition, and all cod would be 
sacrificed for biological sampling. No catch would be landed for sale 
under this EFP, and all individuals (except those sacrificed for 
biological sampling) would be returned to the water after being 
processed.
