NOAA Fisheries has received a request from the St. George Reef Lighthouse Preservation Society for authorization to take marine mammals over the course of 5 years (2021-2026) incidental to conducting aircraft operations, lighthouse renovation, light maintenance activities, and tour operations on the St. George Reef Lighthouse Station on Northwest Seal Rock. NOAA Fisheries is proposing regulations to govern that take, and requests comments on the proposed regulations. We will consider public comments prior to making any final decision on the issuance of the requested authorizations and agency responses will be summarized in the final notification of our decision.
