Oct. 25, 2022
NMFS proposed to designate critical habitat for the threatened Nassau grouper pursuant to section 4 of the ESA. Specific occupied areas proposed for designation as critical habitat contain approximately 2,353.19 sq. kilometers (908.57 sq. miles) of aquatic habitat located in waters off the coasts of southeastern Florida, Puerto Rico, Navassa, and the United States Virgin Islands (USVI). They have considered positive and negative economic, national security, and other relevant impacts of the proposed critical habitat. They are soliciting comments from the public on all aspects of the proposal, including our identification and consideration of impacts of the proposed action. Written comments and information must be received by 16 December 2022. POC is Patrick Opay, email: Patrick.Opay@noaa.gov and tele: 727-551-5789.
