The Working Group has developed its Work Plan, a living document that will serve as the basis for a 5-year strategic plan that is due to Congress by the end of calendar year 2021. In this Work Plan, the Working Group identified ongoing existing activities, as well as new lines of effort, that comprise the initial focus of Federal government actions under the purview of the Working Group. Many of the new activities proposed in the Work Plan emphasize the use of maritime intelligence and the involvement of military departments to support efforts to combat IUU fishing. The Work Plan can be found here: https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/national/ maritime-safe-act-interagency-workinggroup-iuu-fishing. The Working Group is exploring potential ways in which the government and private sector stakeholders can work together to combat IUU fishing and enhance maritime security. We are interested to hear from the seafood industry, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders that are engaged in efforts to combat IUU fishing. We welcome comments in relation to the Work Plan, particularly any responses to the following questions: • Which activities in the Work Plan are connected to the expertise or interests of your organization related to combating IUU fishing? • What kinds of distinctive capabilities or capacities could your organization bring to the activities in the Work Plan? • Which specific activities could serve as the basis for a partnership between your organization and particular Federal agencies? • Are there specific geographic regions or seafood industry sectors (e.g., harvesting, processing, or trade) where your organization focuses efforts to build capacity in combating IUU fishing that could be tied to activities in the Work Plan? • Which elements in the Work Plan do you see as priorities to include in the 5-year Strategic Plan of the Working Group?

ACTION: Notice of approval of the revised management plan for the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that the Office for Coastal Management, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce approves the revised management plan for the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve. In accordance with applicable Federal regulations, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Coastal Management revised the reserve’s management plan, which replaces the plan previously approved in 2009. ADDRESSES: The approved management plan can be downloaded or viewed at https://coast.noaa.gov/data/docs/nerrs/ Reserves_NOC_MgmtPlan.pdf. The document is also available by sending a written request to the point of contact identified below (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to 15 CFR 921.33(c), a state must revise the management plan for a research reserve at least every five years. Changes to a reserve’s management plan may be made only after receiving written approval from NOAA. NOAA approves changes to management plans via notice in the Federal Register. On October 28, 2019, NOAA issued a notice in the Federal Register announcing a 30-day public comment period for the proposed revision of the management plan for the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve (Federal Register, Volume 84, No. 208, pg. 57701). No comments were received; however, a summary of the public input process is available in Appendix U of the plan. The management plan outlines the reserve’s strategic goals and objectives; administrative structure; programs for SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 conducting research and monitoring, education, and training; resource protection, restoration, and manipulation plans; public access and visitor use plans; consideration for future land acquisition; and facility development to support reserve operations. Since 2009, the reserve has completed its habitat map and added marsh vegetation and surface elevation monitoring; conducted a habitat vulnerability assessment to understand marsh vulnerability; led a number of research and training initiatives related to living shorelines; increased education programming at the Masonboro Island component of the reserve; begun implementing Teachers on the Estuary (TOTE) training; expanded use of volunteers to conduct citizen science regarding sensitive species and site conditions; and implemented training focused on informing real estate professionals about coastal issues. The revised management plan will serve as the guiding document for the 10,568acre research reserve for the next five years. NOAA reviewed the environmental impacts of the revised management plan and determined that this action is categorically excluded from further analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act, consistent with NOAA Administrative Order 216– 6.] Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq.; 15 CFR 921.33.
