  • Description:
    "This report was produced in response to a petition received from WildEarth Guardians on July 15, 2013, to list 81 marine species as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). On February 24, 2014, NMFS announced in the Federal Register that the petition presented substantial information that listing may be warranted for five of the petitioned species of skates and rays and requested information on these species from the public (79 FR 10104). This report is the status review for two of the five species of skates and rays, namely, Rhinobatos cemiculus and Rhinobatos rhinobatos. On September 19, 2016, NMFS published in the Federal Register a proposed rule to list R. rhinobatos and R. cemiculus as threatened species under the ESA (81 FR 64094). At that time, we solicited comments on the proposed rule and draft status review report. This final report summarizes available data and information on these two guitarfish species, including information we received during the 60-day public comment period, and presents an evaluation of their status and extinction risk."--Executive Summary, Page iii.
