The applicant requests a permit to conduct scientific research on spotted (Phoca largha), ringed (Pusa hispida), bearded (Erignathus barbatus), and ribbon (Histriophoca fasciata) seals in the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas of Alaska. The purpose of this research is to monitor the status and health of seal species by analyzing samples from the subsistence harvest and by documenting movements and habitat use by tracking animals with satellite transmitters. In addition to sampling harvested seals, the applicant would capture up to 50 bearded seals, 20 ribbon seals, 50 ringed seals, and 50 spotted seals per year that would be sedated, measured, sampled (e.g., blood and skin), flipper tagged, and fitted with SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8235 transmitters.

The applicant also requests permission to harass non-target seals of all four pinniped species as well as beluga whales (Delphinapterus leucas). The applicant requests up to five mortalities per species per year for pinniped captures and one mortality of a beluga whale annually due to accidental entanglement in pinniped capture nets. Samples would be imported from Russia, Canada, Svalbard (Norway) and exported to Canada for analyses. The permit would be valid for 5 years. 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.
