2011 Amendment to the Cooperative Agreement Between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission
The Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration hereby agree to amend their Cooperative Agreement as follows:
Article 4, Paragraph (1) is amended to read as follows:
"No more than 75 bowhead whales shall be struck in 2011. The AEWC and NOAA shall determine the total number of bowhead whales that may be struck in 2012, and any applicable number of bowhead whales that may be landed, through annual negotiations prior to the year for which the quota is applicable. Provided, however, that the Under Secretary may, in consultation with the AEWC, reconsider and revise the terms of this paragraph if she deems it necessary pursuant to the Federal Register notice of the allocations."
