Comment Period

    The Fish and Wildlife Service gives notice that the comment period 
is extended on the notice of receipt of applications for two 
applications submitted by International Animal Consulting Group, Inc. 
The applications were submitted to satisfy requirements of the Marine 
Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) and 
the regulations governing marine mammals (50 CFR 18). The applications, 
018196 and 018197, are for conducting certain activities with marine 
mammals, specifically taking northern sea otters (Enhydra lutris 
lutris) from the wild in Alaska for export and public display at two 
Japanese aquariums. The extension will allow all interested parties to 
submit written comments. The Fish and Wildlife Service published a 
notice of receipt of the applications on Friday, December 17, 1999. The 
current comment period closes on January 26, 2000. Written comments may 
now be submitted until January 31, 2000, and should be submitted to the
