Removing the Apache Trout From the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife (Draft)
Aug. 11, 2023
USFWS propose to remove the Apache trout (Oncorhynchus apache), a fish native to Arizona, from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife due to recovery. Their review of the best available scientific and commercial data indicates that the threats to the species have been eliminated or reduced to the point that the species no longer meets the definition of a threatened species or an endangered species under the ESA. If finalized the prohibitions and conservation measures provided by the Act, particularly through section 7 and the regulations would no longer apply to the Apache trout. They request information and comments from the public regarding this proposed rule for the Apache trout. They will accept comments received or postmarked on or before 10 October 2023. POC is Jess Newton, Project Leader, Arizona Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office, USFWS, 2500 S Pine Knoll Drive, Flagstaff, AZ 86001; tele: 928–556–2140.
