  • Description:
    "This status review report was conducted in response to a petition received from WildEarth Guardians and Friends of Animals on March 12, 2012 to list 15 species of foreign sturgeon as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). It was determined that five of the species fell within NMFS' jurisdiction (Acipenser naccarii (Adriatic sturgeon) and A. sturio (Baltic sturgeon/European sturgeon) in the Western Europe region, A. sinensis (Chinese sturgeon) in the Yangtze River region, and A. mikadoi (Sakhalin sturgeon) and Huso dauricus (Kaluga sturgeon) in the Amur River Basin/Sea of Japan/Sea of Okhotsk region) because of significant use of estuarine and/or marine habitats. Ten of the 15 species occur in habitats that are the responsibility of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and FWS agreed to process the petitions for those species. NMFS evaluated the petition to determine whether the petitioner provided substantial information as required by the ESA to list these species. In A Federal Register notice on 27 August 2012 (77 FR 51767), NMFS determined that the petition did present substantial scientific and commercial information, or cited such information in other sources, that the petitioned action may be warranted for all five species and, subsequently, NMFS initiated a status review of those species"--Executive Summary.
