The notice of receipt for a permit (85 FR 43818; July 20, 2020) contained an error in that it incorrectly noted that the applicant proposed to import biological samples from up to six individual humpback whales (East Australia distinct population segment) annually. In fact, the applicant has requested to import unlimited biological samples from a maximum of 10 individual humpback whales (East Australia distinct population segment) annually.
All other information contained in the document is unchanged.
In the Federal Register of July 20, 2020, in FR Doc. 2020-15565, on page 43818, in the second column, in the second paragraph under the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION heading, the first sentence is corrected to read as follows:
The applicant has requested to import unlimited biological samples from a maximum of 10 individual humpback whales (East Australia distinct population segment) annually.
