DESCRIPTION OF PERMIT AND MODIFICATION:

On September 25, 1998, the National Science Foundation issued a permit (ACA #99-010) to Dr. Rennie S. Holt after posting a notice in the August 27, 1998 Federal Register. No public comments were received. A request to modify the permit was posted in the Federal Register on December 23, 1999. No public comments were received.

The tooth extractions will be taken from animals already captured for other permitted procedures. This is part of an ongoing study of Antarctic fur seals by the U.S. Antarctic Marine Living Resources (AMLR) Program.
