Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Recovery Permit Applications, 109-111 [2021-28443]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 1 / Monday, January 3, 2022 / Notices Why did the Coast Guard conduct this PARS? The Coast Guard conducted the NNYBPARS to evaluate the adequacy of existing vessel routing measures and determine whether additional vessel routing measures are necessary for port approaches to New York and New Jersey and international and domestic transit areas in the First District area of responsibility. The NNYBPARS considered whether existing or additional routing measures were necessary to improve navigation safety due to factors such as planned or potential offshore development, current port capabilities and planned improvements, increased vessel traffic, existing and potential anchorage areas, changing vessel traffic patterns, effects of weather, or navigational difficulty. Vessel routing measures, which include traffic separation schemes, two-way routes, recommended tracks, deep-water routes, precautionary areas, and areas to be avoided, are implemented to reduce the risk of marine casualties. PARS are conducted anytime the Coast Guard considers a need to recommend routing changes, within the territorial seas, for any port. The Ports and Waterways Safety Act (PWSA) requires the Coast Guard to conduct a study before establishing new or adjusting existing fairways or Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS). U.S. waterways support multiple uses, such as commercial shipping, tug and barge operations, commercial and recreational fishing, research vessels, offshore support vessels, military vessels, and aquaculture apparatus. How did the First Coast Guard District conduct this PARS? The PARS was conducted in alignment with guidance outlined in Coast Guard Commandant Instruction 16003.2B, Marine Planning to Operate and Maintain the Marine Transportation System (MTS) and Implement National Policy which is available in the docket or see https://media.defense.gov/2017/ Mar/15/2001716995/-1/-1/0/CI_16003_ 2A.PDF. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES What were the objectives of the study? The objectives of the study were to; i. Determine present traffic density; ii. Determine potential traffic density; iii. Determine if existing vessel routing measures are adequate; iv. Determine if existing vessel routing measures require modifications; v. Determine the type of modifications; vi. Define and justify the needs for new vessel routing measures; VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Dec 30, 2021 Jkt 256001 vii. Determine the type of new vessel routing measures; and viii. Determine if the usage of the vessel routing measures must be mandatory for specific classes of vessels. III.

Then scroll down to the document entitled ‘‘FINAL REPORT Northern New York Bight PARS December 27, 2021’’ under the document type ‘‘Supporting & Related Material.’’ IV. Conclusion As required by the March 15, 2019 Federal Register Notice of study; request for comments (84 FR 9541), the First Coast Guard District considered whether it should revise existing regulations to improve navigation safety in NNYB due to factors such as vessel traffic density, vessel traffic patterns, weather conditions, or navigation challenges in the study area. The First Coast Guard District analyzed all available sources of data relevant to this process, including existing and potential traffic patterns, existing regulations, public submissions, and other factors. The First Coast Guard District identified five different alternatives to consider within this study. As detailed in the final report, the First Coast Guard District recommends that multiple shipping safety fairways and one federal anchorage ground be established within the NNYBPARS study area. Shipping safety fairways may be utilized by mariners but are not mandatory for any specific class of vessel. The First Coast Guard District actively monitors all waterways subject to its jurisdiction to help ensure navigation safety. As such, the First Coast Guard District will continue to monitor the Northern New York Bight for changing conditions and consider appropriate actions, such as recommend vessel routes or more extensive use of electronic Aids to Navigation to promote waterway and user safety.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    With some exceptions, the Endangered Species Act (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 
1531 et seq.) prohibits activities that constitute take of listed 
species unless a Federal permit is issued that allows such activity. 
The ESA's definition of ``take'' includes hunting, shooting, harming, 
wounding, or killing, but also

[[Page 110]]

such activities as pursuing, harassing, trapping, capturing, or 
collecting.
    The ESA and our implementing regulations in the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) at title 50, part 17, provide for issuing such 
permits and require that we invite public comment before issuing 
permits for activities involving endangered species.
    A recovery permit we issue under the ESA, section 10(a)(1)(A), 
authorizes the permittee to conduct activities with endangered or 
threatened species for scientific purposes that promote recovery or 
enhance the species' propagation or survival. These activities often 
include such prohibited actions as capture and collection. Our 
regulations implementing section 10(a)(1)(A) for these permits are 
found at 50 CFR 17.22 for endangered wildlife species, 50 CFR 17.32 for 
threatened wildlife species, 50 CFR 17.62 for endangered plant species, 
and 50 CFR 17.72 for threatened plant species.

    Proposed activities in the following permit requests are for the 
recovery and enhancement of propagation or survival of the species in 
the wild. We invite local, State, Tribal, and Federal agencies and the 
public to submit written data, views, or arguments with respect to 
these applications. The comments and recommendations that will be most 
useful and likely to influence agency decisions are those supported by
