Updating Entries for Two Species on and Removing Johnson's Seagrass from the Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (Final)
Nov. 16, 2022
USFWS in accordance with the ESA are amending the List of Endangered and Threatened Plants by removing Johnson's seagrass (Halophila johnsonii). They are also amending the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife by updating the entries for the Arctic subspecies of the ringed seal (Pusa hispida hispida) and the Beringia distinct population segment (DPS) of the Pacific bearded seal subspecies (Erignathus barbatus nauticus) to reflect the final designation of critical habitat for this subspecies and DPS, respectively. These amendments are based on previously published determinations by the NMFS of the NOAA, Department of Commerce, which has jurisdiction for these species. This rule is effective 15 November 2022. POC is Rachel London, Acting Chief, Branch of Delisting and Foreign Species, USFWS, MS: ES, 5275 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22041-3803; tele: 703-358-2491.
