Status Review of Southeast Alaska Herring (Clupea pallasi): Threats Evaluation and Extinction Risk Analysis
  • Published Date:


Filetype[PDF-3.58 MB]

  • Description:
    On April 11, 2008, after completing a formal status review of the best available scientific and commercial data, NMFS announced that the listing of Lynn Canal herring under the ESA was not warranted because the population did not constitute a species, subspecies, or distinct population segment (DPS). Instead, the Lynn Canal herring population was determined to be part of a larger Southeast Alaska DPS of Pacific herring. To pursue the findings of the Lynn Canal status review, NMFS initiated a status review to evaluate the extinction risk of the Southeast Alaska DPS of Pacific herring. The key task of the status review and extinction risk assessment was to provide sufficient information to support a determination as to whether the Southeast Alaska DPS is threatened or endangered. The ESA defines the term endangered species as “any species which is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range.” The term threatened species is defined as “any species which is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range.”
