The subject amendment to Permit No. 22187–01 is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216). Permit No. 22187–01, issued on January 28, 2020, authorizes the permit holder to conduct research to establish a catalog of known individual northern elephant (Mirounga angustirostris) seals along the California coast. Types of authorized takes include behavioral observations, measurements, bioacoustic recordings, acoustic playbacks, marking, flipper tagging, capture, and non-invasive physiological sampling. The permit holder is requesting the permit be amended to include authorization for 20 additional takes of northern elephant seals per year, two takes per year for 10 individuals. These animals will be captured by hand or net, sedated, fitted with satellite transmitters, swabbed, imaged with an ultrasound, weighed, and recaptured approximately three months later to remove the instruments. An additional five takes are requested for animals that are captured and released because they are not appropriate candidates for the study. The permit would remain valid until March 31, 2024. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of this application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.
