Determination on the Designation of Critical Habitat for Chambered Nautilus
Jan. 29, 2020
NMFS determined that a designation of critical habitat for the chambered nautilus (Nautilus pompilius) is not prudent at this time. Based on a comprehensive review of the best scientific data available, NMFS finds that there are no areas that meet the definition of critical habitat for the species; the species primarily occurs outside the jurisdiction of the United States, and areas within the jurisdiction of the United States provide no more than negligible conservation value, if any. Given the above circumstances, NMFS determined that a designation of critical habitat for this species is not prudent. This finding is made on January 29, 2020. POC is Maggie Miller, NMFS, Office of Protected Resources, (301) 427-8403.NMFS determined that a designation of critical habitat for the chambered nautilus (Nautilus pompilius) is not prudent at this time.
