  • Description:
    "The action agencies for this consultation are NMFS, Office of Protected Resources, Permits and Conservation Division (hereafter the Permits Division), the lead action agency, and NMFS, Alaska Fisheries Science Center, Marine Mammal Laboratory (hereafter MML), the permit applicant. The Permits Division proposes to issue a scientific research permit (Appendix A) pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA and section 104 of the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) of 1972, as amended (16 USC 1361 et seq.) to MML, 7600 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA (Responsible Party: John Bengtson, Ph.D.). The purpose of the proposed permit is to allow an exception to the moratoria and prohibition on takes established under the ESA and MMPA in order to allow the applicant to conduct scientific research on cetaceans (both ESA-listed and non-ESA-listed), and in doing so incidentally harass several pinniped species (both ESA-listed and non-ESA-listed)"--Introduction.
