  • Description:
    "The Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (16 use 661-667) requires that action on licenses, permits, and construction projects regulated or undertaken by other Federal agencies in waters of the United States must include consultation with resource agencies (NMFS) and equal consideration of fish and wildlife resources. The NMFS Alaska Region dedicates a major effort to coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) on Section 10 and 404 permit applications. It is, therefore, important that NMFS periodically assess its involvement and institute changes to improve our ~ffectiveness. This report, the first such evaluation conducted by the Alaska Region, also provides an C accounting of our Habitat Conservation Division program, resource values and concerns, and development pressures in Alaska. The report is structured around a summary of NMFS involvement with the COE Section 10/404 public notice review process for the period January l, 1981, through December 31, 1985. During this C period NMFS reviewed 2,315 proposed Section 10/404 actions. Most of these proposals (85 percent) were permitted by the COE. The most . frequently requested authorization (40 percent of the total) involved the placement of fill into wetland areas and a Section 404 permit. Another 25 percent of the applications involved the construction of a structure in navigable waterways and required a Section 10 permit. Finally 35 percent of all applications required authorization under both section 404 and Section 10"--Executive Summary. [doi:10.7289/V5/TM-F/AKR-6b (http://doi.org/10.7289/V5/TM-F/AKR-6b)]
