  • Description:
    "For the actions described in this document, the action agencies are the United States Navy, which proposes to undertake training activities in operating areas and range complexes along the Atlantic Coast of the United States of America and NMFS' Office of Protected Resources - Permits, Conservation, and Education Division, which proposes to issue Letters of Authorization that would authorize the U.S. Navy to 'take' marine mammals incidental to those activities. The consulting agency for these proposals is NMFS' Office of Protected Resources - Endangered Species Division. This document presents the results of section 7 consultations on several actions that are all proposed to occur along the Atlantic Coast of the United States: (1) the U.S. Navy's proposal to conduct training activities in (a) the Northeast Operating Area; (b) the Virginia Capes Range Complex; (c) the Cherry Point Range Complex; and (d) the Jacksonville Range Complex from June 2010 to June 2011; and (2) the National Marine Fisheries Service's Permits, Conservation, and Education Division's (Permits Division) proposal to issue an annual Letter of Authorization to the U.S. Navy to 'take' marine mammals incidental to the conduct of training in the Virginia Capes, Cherry Point, and Jacksonville Range Complexes for a one-year period beginning in June 2010 and ending in June 2011. The National Marine Fisheries Service's biological opinions on each of these separate actions have been grouped into this single document because of their spatial proximity and their potential to result in cumulative impacts (in the NEPA sense of that term) on endangered and threatened species and designated critical habitat that occurs along the Atlantic Coast of the United States."--[Page 2].
