Title: Taking Marine Mammals Incidental to Lighthouse Repair and Tour Operations at Northwest Seal Rock, California 

The RIN was closed in error when the application was withdrawn for additional review. The RIN should not have been closed and the applicant intended to resubmit, but needed additional time to do so.

NMFS has received a request from the St. George Reef Lighthouse Preservation Society (Society) for authorization to take small numbers of marine mammals incidental to Lighthouse Repair and Tour Operations at Northwest Seal Rock, California at over the course of five years from the date of issuance. The proposed regulations will set forth the permissible methods of taking; means of effecting the least practicable adverse impact on the affected species or stocks and their habitats and, if applicable, on their availability for taking for subsistence uses (i.e., mitigation); and requirements pertaining to the monitoring and reporting of such taking. Letters of Authorization issued under the regulations would authorize the take of marine mammals incidental to the specified activities for a 5-year period.
