  • Description:
    "The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Office of Protected Resources, proposes to issue a scientific research and enhancement permit to the University of California, Davis, Bodega Marine Laboratory, Bodega Bay, California for the captive maintenance, breeding and outplanting (referred to as field planting) of white abalone (Haliotis sorenseni), pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The purpose of this research is to overcome key barriers to captive propagation of the endangered white abalone, to identify limitations to reproduction in wild animals, to further understand disease processes and how to mitigate them, and the most successful means of restoration. In addition, white abalone will be maintained at participating aquariums for education and reserve holding. No white abalone will be taken from the wild; animals will come from existing captive broodstock and their progeny. The permit would be valid for five years from the date of issuance. Scientific research permits are 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 an environmental impact statement (EIS) (NAO 216-6). However, the issuance of permits for scientific research or to enhance the propagation or survival of a listed species pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA when hatchery activities are involved requires development of an EA (NAO 216-6, section 6.03(e)(2)(c)). Therefore, for this action NMFS prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to facilitate a more thorough assessment of potential impacts on endangered white abalone. 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.
