SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

ESA Listed Species Covered in This Notice

    Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus 
kisutch): Threatened, naturally produced, and artificially propagated.

Background

    The proposed TRMP provides a framework through which Tribal salmon 
fisheries can be implemented while meeting requirements specified under 
the ESA. Activities described in the plan include fisheries for coho 
salmon in the Trinity River. The TRMP describes the proposed fisheries, 
limits for harvest, and monitoring and evaluation associated with the 
fisheries. The management objective is for the Tribe to conduct 
fisheries in a manner that does not appreciably reduce the likelihood 
of survival and recovery of ESA-listed coho salmon.
    The Hoopa Valley Tribe submitted a TRMP for review under the ESA 
Tribal 4(d) Rule. Under section 4 of the ESA, the Secretary of Commerce 
(Secretary) is required to adopt such regulations as deemed necessary 
and advisable for the conservation of species listed as threatened. The 
ESA salmon and steelhead 4(d) rule (50 CFR 223.203; 65 FR 42422, July 
10, 2000, as updated in 70 FR 37160, June 28, 2005) specifies 
categories of activities that contribute to the conservation of listed 
salmonids and thus are exempted from the ESA Section 9 take 
prohibitions. The ESA Tribal 4(d) Rule (50 CFR 223.204; 65 FR 42481, 
July 10, 2000) states that the take prohibitions of ESA Section 9 will 
not apply to Tribal Plans provided that the Secretary has determined 
that the Tribal Plan will not appreciably reduce the likelihood of 
survival and recovery for the listed species (50 CFR 223.204(a)). Prior 
to making a final determination on Tribal Plans, NMFS must take 
comments on its pending determination as to whether or not 
implementation of the plan will appreciably reduce the likelihood of 
survival and recovery of ESA-listed salmonids (50 CFR 223.204(b)(3)).
