Designation of Critical Habitat for Suwannee Moccasinshell (Draft)
Dec. 3, 2019
USFWS proposes to designate critical habitat for the Suwannee moccasinshell (Medionidus walkeri) under the ESA. The Suwannee moccasinshell is a freshwater mussel species from the Suwannee River Basin in Florida and Georgia. In total, approximately 306 kilometers (190 miles) of stream channels in Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, and Union Counties, Florida, and Brooks and Lowndes Counties, Georgia, fall within the boundaries of the proposed critical habitat designation. If USFWS finalize this rule as proposed, it would extend the Act's protections to this species' critical habitat. USFWS will accept comments on the proposed rule or draft economic analysis that are received or postmarked on or before January 27, 2020. POC is Sean M.
