  • Description:
    "The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to issue a scientific research permit for takes under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 222-226). The permit would be valid for five years from date of issuance. Research authorized under Permit No. 14622 would monitor the abundance of loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and green (Chelonia mydas) sea turtles; characterize the aggregations of loggerhead, Kemp's ridley (Lepidochelys kempii), and hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) sea turtles; and determine the movements, behaviors, habitat-use, and reproductive status of loggerhead sea turtles in Florida Bay. Under NOAA Administrative Order 216-6, NMFS issuance of scientific research permits is generally categorically excluded from the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) requirements to prepare an environmental assessment (EA) or environmental impact statement (ElS). However, for this permit NMFS prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to facilitate a more thorough assessment of potential impacts on endangered sea turtles. This EA evaluates the potential impacts to the human environment from issuance of the proposed permit"--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.
