Download as PDF 56256 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 193 / Friday, October 8, 2021 / Notices NMFS finds this application warrants further consideration based on a preliminary review. Possible conditions the agency may impose on this permit, if it is granted, include but are not limited to, a prohibition on conducting sampling activities within marine protected areas, marine sanctuaries, or special management zones, without additional authorization, and requiring compliance with best practices in the event of interactions with any protected species. NMFS may also require annual reports summarizing the amount of shark-depredated carcasses harvested during the period of effectiveness of any issued EFP. NMFS requires that all federally permitted charter vessels participating under this EFP are compliant with all legal requirements, including the Southeast For-Hire Electronic Reporting Program. Additionally, NMFS would require any sea turtles taken incidentally during the course of the activities to be handled with due care to prevent injury to live specimens, observed for activity, and returned to the water. A final decision on issuance of the EFP will depend on NMFS’ review of public comments received on the application, consultations with the affected state, the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council, and the U.S. Coast Guard, and a determination that it is consistent with all applicable law.
