  • Description:
    "The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Office of Protected Resources, proposes to issue modifications to two scientific research permits for takes of sea turtles in the wild, pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR Parts 222-226). Research authorized under Permit No. 13307 addresses fine-scale temporal and spatial patterns of sea turtle habitat use, ecology, and genetic origin within the Dry Tortugas National Park. The proposed modification would increase the number of turtles captured. Research authorized under File No. 13544 characterizes the aggregations of sea turtles in the nearshore waters of southwest Florida. The proposed modification would authorize for the additional types of satellite tags. NMFS prepared environmental assessments (EAs) for issuance of the permits in 2008 and 2009. This supplemental EA (SEA) evaluates the potential impacts to the human environment from issuance of the proposed permit modifications by supplementing the previous EAs' assessments of potential impacts on sea turtles"--Abstract; Portfolio comprised of three related PDF documents digitized and organized by: NOAA Office of Program Planning and Integration (PPI) National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) staff.
