Proposed rule; request for comments; correction.
In the proposed rule that we, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), published on July 18, 2013, to designate critical habitat for the loggerhead sea turtle Northwest Atlantic Ocean Distinct Population Segment (DPS) and make a determination regarding critical habitat for the loggerhead sea turtle in the North Pacific Ocean DPS, a map was omitted. This document corrects that oversight and adds the map LOGG-N-17. All other information in the July 18, 2013 document remains unchanged.
Comments and information regarding this proposed rule must be received by September 16, 2013.
You may submit comments on this document, identified by NOAA-NMFS-2013-0079, by any of the following methods:

In the Proposed Rule to Designate Critical Habitat for the Northwest Atlantic Ocean Loggerhead Sea Turtle Distinct Population Segment (DPS) and Proposed Determination Regarding Critical Habitat for the North Pacific Ocean Loggerhead DPS that published at (78 FR 43005) on July 18, 2013, the map entitled, “Proposed Loggerhead Critical Habitat: LOGG-N-17 (Nearshore Reproductive, Breeding, Migratory)” was inadvertently omitted. This map should have appeared in the regulatory text for 50 CFR part 226.223 in numerical sequence with the maps of other units. This document corrects that oversight. All information in the proposed rule other than the additional map remains exactly the same as that previously published.

This rule proposes designation of critical habitat for the threatened Northwest Atlantic Ocean Distinct Population Segment (DPS) of the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta), and also constitutes NMFS' proposed determination that there are no areas meeting the definition of “critical habitat” for the endangered North Pacific Ocean DPS of the loggerhead sea turtle.
