Permit number Applicant Receipt of application Federal Register notice Permit issuance date
801652 U.S. Geological Survey 74 FR 47821; September 17, 2009 September 18, 2009

On September 18, 2009, the Service issued an amendment to a permit (PRT- 801652) to the U.S. Geological Survey, to increase the number of walruses (Odobenus rosmarus) that may be incidentally harassed by the already authorized activities for the purpose of scientific research. We issued the amendment to the permit prior to the close of the public comment period because we found that delaying the issuance of the permit would result in the loss of a unique research opportunity that is present at this time. This action was authorized under section 104(c)(3)(A) of the MMPA. We will continue to accept and consider all comments regarding the amendment request through the close of the comment period as published in the September 17, 2009, receipt of application Federal Register notice (FR 74 FR 47821).
