Endangered and Threatened Species Permit Applications; Notice of 
Extension of 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 part 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 16, 2000. Written comments may 
now be submitted until January 26, 2000, and should be submitted to the
