  • Description:
    "An environmental assessment (EA) was prepared to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposing to issue a Special Coral Reef Ecosystem Fishing Permit (SCREFP) to Kona Blue Water Farms (KBWF) for one year in accordance with the Hawaii Fishery Ecosystem Plan and consistent with implementing federal regulations (50 CFR ʹ665.224) pertaining to management of coral reef ecosystem fisheries. The permit will authorize the culture and harvest of Seriola rivoliana, a Hawaii coral reef ecosystem management unit species (MUS), using a small, untethered brass-link mesh cage (CuPod) deployed in Federal waters (generally from 3-1 50 nautical miles (nm) offshore) west of the Island of Hawaii. The proposed activity will allow the applicant to test the feasibility of raising marine fish species using a new gear-type (towed, floating pen) in the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (U.S. EEZ). The environmental review process was conducted with public input. The proposed action is not expected to have large and adverse environmental impacts to native fishes, marine mammals, seabirds, sea turtles, other marine species, or habitats. The analysis showed that approving and issuing the permit to culture and harvest Seriola rivoliana will not have a significant effect on the human environment"--Cover letter; 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.
