Notice of 12-Month Finding on a Petition To List Summer-Run Steelhead in Northern California
Feb. 6, 2020
NMFS announces a 12-month finding on a petition to delineate Northern California (NC) summer-run steelhead as a distinct population segment (DPS) of West Coast steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss), and to list that DPS as endangered under the ESA. NMFS has completed a comprehensive DPS analysis of NC summer-run steelhead in response to the petition. Based on the best scientific and commercial data available, including the DPS configuration review report, NMFS has determined that listing NC summer-run steelhead as an endangered DPS is not warranted. NMFS determined that summer-run steelhead in the NC steelhead DPS do not meet the criteria to be considered a DPS separate from winter-run steelhead. NMFS also announced the availability of the DPS configuration review report prepared pursuant to the ESA for the NC steelhead DPS. This finding was made on 5 February 2020. POC is Gary Rule, NMFS West Coast Region at gary.rule@noaa.gov, (503) 230-5424. (Federal Registry 5 February 2020 [Notice] Pages 6527-6531)
