    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to issue a permit for research on marine mammals in the wild, pursuant to the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.). The permit would be valid for five years from the date of issuance and would exempt the permit holder from the MMPA's prohibition against (S2taking (S3 marine mammals in the wild, allowing researchers authorized by the permit to conduct bona fide scientific research consistent with the purpose and policy of the MMPA. The permit would cover research on Pacific harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), California sea lions (Zalophus californianus), and northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) within coastal waters and on pinniped rookeries and haul outs of Washington and Oregon. Research activities being evaluated include aerial, vessel, and ground surveys; capture for collection of tissue samples, attachment of scientific instruments and application of marks (flipper tags, brands, etc.); and playback experiments.
