On March 21, 2013, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) announced
the availability of the Effects of Oil and Gas Activities in the Arctic
Ocean Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).  That
announcement noted that the official 60-day public comment period would
begin on March 29, 2013, and close on May 28, 2013.  Based on a request to
extend the comment period for the Supplemental DEIS, NMFS is hereby
providing notice that the public comment period on the Supplemental DEIS
has been extended by 30 days.  The new end date for the public comment
period is Thursday, June 27, 2013.

A notice announcing the extension of the comment period for the
Supplemental DEIS will publish in the Federal Register on Wednesday, April
10, 2013.  NMFS has also notified EPA about the extension of the comment
period, and this will be announced by the EPA in the next available weekly
notice of availability published by the EPA.

The Supplemental DEIS is available for download on the project website:
http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/permits/eis/arctic.htm.  To aid in your review,
you can also find a summary document on this page, which notes the sections
where substantive changes were made to the document since the release of
the DEIS in December 2011.
