Designation of a Nonessential Experimental Population of Central Valley Spring-Run Chinook Salmon in the Upper Yuba River Upstream of Englebright Dam, etc. (Final)
Dec. 29, 2022
NMFS designated and authorized the release of a nonessential experimental population (NEP or experimental population) of Central Valley (CV) spring-run Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in the upper Yuba River and its tributaries upstream of Englebright Dam, California, and under the ESA, establish a limited set of take exceptions for the experimental population. Successful reintroduction of a population within the species' historical range would contribute to its viability and further its conservation. The issuance of limited protective regulations for the conservation of the species would provide assurances to the people of the upper Yuba River watershed. This document also announces the availability of a final EA that analyzed the environmental impacts of promulgating the experimental population rule and associated take exceptions. The final rule is effective 27 January 2023. POC is Steve Edmonson, NMFS, 650 Capitol Mall, Suite 5-100, Sacramento, CA 95814, 916-930-3600, or Adrienne Lohe, NMFS Office of Protected Resources, 301-427-8442. (Federal Register 28 December 2022 [Rule] Pages 79808-79818)
