SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

I. Abstract
This request is for extension of a
current information collection.
Since 2002, the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA)
National Marine Fisheries Service
(NMFS) has promulgated several rules
restricting the use of large mesh and
stringer pound net leaders in certain
Virginia Chesapeake Bay waters during
the late spring/early summer each year.
On June 17, 2002, an interim final rule
was published (67 FR 41196) restricting
leader use, which also required year-
round reporting of sea turtle takes. In
2004, NMFS issued a final rule further
restricting pound net leader use in
Virginia (69 FR 24997). The 2004 rule
retained the reporting requirement from
the 2002 rule. These regulations
(modifications to 50 CFR parts 222 and
223) were implemented as a result of
high sea turtle strandings each spring in
Virginia and the documented take of sea
turtles in pound net leaders. On March
31, 2018, a revised Biological Opinion
on NMFS gear regulations in the
Virginia pound net fishery was
completed pursuant to section 7 of the
Endangered Species Act of 1973, as
amended (ESA). An Incidental Take
Statement was included in this
Biological Opinion, exempting the
incidental take of a certain number of
loggerhead, Kemp’s ridley, green and
leatherback sea turtles in pound net
operations.
A non-discretionary term and
condition of the Incidental Take
Statement involved the reporting to
NMFS of live or dead sea turtles taken
in pound net operations (reflected in 50
CFR 223.206). The collection of this
information on the incidental take of sea
turtles in the Virginia pound net fishery
is necessary to ensure sea turtles are
being conserved and protected, as
mandated by the Endangered Species
Act (ESA). Documenting the accurate
occurrence of sea turtle incidental take
in pound net operations will help to
determine if additional regulatory
actions or management measures are
necessary to protect sea turtles caught in
pound net operations. This information
will help NMFS better assess the
Virginia pound net fishery and its
impacts (or lack thereof) on sea turtle
populations in the Virginia Chesapeake
Bay. The collection of this information
is also imperative to ensure that the
Incidental Take Statement is not being
exceeded, the anticipated take levels are
appropriate, and the effects analysis in
the Biological Opinion is accurate.
Further, reporting the take of live,
injured sea turtles caught in pound net
gear will ensure these turtles are
transferred immediately to a stranding
and rehabilitation center for appropriate
medical treatment.
II. Method of Collection
Reports may be made either by
telephone or email.
