§ 1385 - Dolphin protection
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 50 CFR 216 after this date.
NMFS proposes to revise regulations under the Dolphin Protection Consumer Information Act (DPCIA) to enhance the requirements for documentation to support labels on tuna products that represent the product as dolphin-safe. This proposed rule would modify the requirements for the certifications that must accompany the Fisheries Certificate of Origin (FCO); change storage requirements related to dolphin-safe and non-dolphin-safe tuna on board fishing vessels; create new requirements for processors, other than tuna canners, of tuna product labeled dolphin-safe; and modify the reporting requirements associated with tracking domestic tuna canning and processing operations. This proposed rule is intended to better ensure dolphin-safe labels comply with the requirements of the DPCIA and to ensure that the United States satisfies its obligations as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
NMFS is considering whether to propose regulations to protect glacially-associated harbor seal habitats in Alaska used for pupping, nursing, resting, and molting and limit vessel disturbance to harbor seals in those habitats. The scope of this advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) encompasses the activities of any person or vessel that may diminish the value of glacial habitats for harbor seals, result in the unauthorized taking of harbor seals, or cause detrimental individual- or population-level impacts. NMFS requests information and comments on whether regulations are needed, and if so, what type of measures would be appropriate to protect harbor seals from the effects of vessel activity in glacial habitats. Any comments or information received in response to this ANPR will be considered prior to any proposed rulemaking.
