Some mortality may occur throughout 2021, and will be accounted for under the 60 metric ton shark research and display quota. 2 These permits are issued to commercial fishermen and the number of species retained are governed by commercial retention limits. 3 LOAs acknowledge, but do not authorize, scientific research activity. Thus, the number of sharks in the authorized fish column are in part estimates of harvest under LOAs. LOA holders are either required or encouraged to report all fishing activities in a timely manner. Final decisions on the issuance of any EFPs, SRPs, display permits, and shark research fishery permits will depend on the submission of all required information about the proposed activities, NMFS’ review of public comments received on this notice, an applicant’s reporting history on past permits, if vessels or applicants were issued any prior violations of marine resource laws administered by NOAA, consistency with relevant NEPA documents, and any consultations with appropriate Regional Fishery Management Councils, states, or Federal agencies. NMFS does not anticipate any significant environmental impacts from the issuance of these EFPs, consistent with the assessment of such activities within the environmental impacts analyses in existing HMS actions, including the 1999 FMP, the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP and its amendments, Amendment 2 to the Consolidated HMS FMP, the Environmental Assessment for the 2012 Swordfish Specifications, and the Environmental Assessment for the 2015 Final Bluefin Tuna Quota and Atlantic Tuna Fisheries Management Measures.

In particular, NOAA is requesting relevant information as it pertains to its 11 evaluation criteria for inclusion in the inventory.

NOAA moves successful nominations to an inventory of areas that could be considered for national marine sanctuary designation. The final rule establishing the SNP included a five-year limit on any nomination added to the inventory that NOAA does not advance for designation. In November 2019, NOAA issued a Federal Register notice (84 FR 61546) to clarify procedures for evaluating and updating a nomination as it approaches the five-year mark on the inventory of areas that could be considered for national marine sanctuary designation. This notice explained that if a nomination remains responsive to the evaluation criteria for inclusion on the inventory, it may be appropriate to allow the nomination to remain on the inventory for another five years. The notice also established a process for NOAA to consider the continuing viability of nominations nearing the five-year expiration mark. The nomination for St. George Unangan Heritage NMS was accepted to the national inventory on January 27, 2017, and is therefore scheduled to expire on January 27, 2022. The full nomination can be found at https:// nominate.noaa.gov/nominations/. NOAA is not proposing to designate the St. George Unangan Heritage NMS with this action. Instead, NOAA is seeking public comment on ONMS’ fiveyear review of the nomination for St. George Unangan Heritage NMS. Accordingly, written comments submitted as part of this request should not focus on whether NOAA should initiate the designation process for a St. George Unangan Heritage NMS. Rather, comments should address the relevance of the nomination towards NOAA’s 11 evaluation criteria and any new information NOAA should consider about the nominated area (these criteria are detailed at https://nominate. noaa.gov/guide.html).

Background Information

    In 2014, NOAA issued a final rule establishing the sanctuary 
nomination process (SNP), which details how communities may submit 
nominations to NOAA for consideration of national marine sanctuary 
designation (79 FR 33851). NOAA moves successful nominations to an 
inventory of areas that could be considered for national marine 
sanctuary designation. The final rule establishing the SNP included a 
five-year limit on any nomination added to the inventory that NOAA does 
not advance for designation.
    In November 2019, NOAA issued a Federal Register notice (84 FR 
61546) to clarify procedures for evaluating and updating a nomination 
as it approaches the five-year mark on the inventory of areas that 
could be considered for national marine sanctuary designation. This 
notice explained that if a nomination remains responsive to the 
evaluation criteria for inclusion on the inventory, it may be 
appropriate to allow the nomination to remain on the inventory for 
another five years. The notice also established a process for NOAA to 
consider the continuing viability of nominations nearing the five-year 
expiration mark.
    The nomination for St. George Unangan Heritage NMS was accepted to 
the national inventory on January 27, 2017, and is therefore scheduled 
to expire on January 27, 2022. The full nomination can be found at 
https://nominate.noaa.gov/nominations/.
    NOAA is not proposing to designate the St. George Unangan Heritage 
NMS with this action. Instead, NOAA is seeking public comment on ONMS' 
five-year review of the nomination for St. George Unangan Heritage NMS. 
Accordingly, written comments submitted as part of this request should 
not focus on whether NOAA should initiate the designation process for a 
St. George Unangan Heritage NMS. Rather, comments should address the 
relevance of the nomination towards NOAA's 11 evaluation criteria and 
any new information NOAA should consider about the nominated area 
(these criteria are detailed at https://nominate.noaa.gov/guide.html). 
Comments that do not pertain to the evaluation criteria, or present new 
information on the St. George Unangan Heritage NMS nomination, will not 
be considered in NOAA's decision on whether to retain this nomination 
in the inventory.
    Whether removing or maintaining the nomination for St. George 
Unangan Heritage NMS, NOAA would follow the same procedure for 
notifying the public as was followed when the nomination was submitted, 
including a letter to the nominator, a notice in the Federal Register, 
and posting information on ``nominate.noaa.gov''.
