Filetype[PDF-1.44 MB]

  • Description:
    This report contains the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Southwest Region’s recommendations for designating critical habitat under section 4 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) for the Southern Distinct Population Segment of green sturgeon (hereafter “Southern DPS”), which we listed under the ESA on April 7, 2006 (71 FR 17757). A proposed rule to designate critical habitat for the Southern DPS was published in the Federal Register on September 8, 2008 (73 FR 52084), with a technical correction published on October 7, 2008 (73 FR 58527). A draft ESA section 4(b)(2) report was prepared and published for public comment in support of the proposed rule. This final report incorporates revisions to the ESA section 4(b)(2) analysis based on public comments received and describes the methods used, process followed, and conclusions reached for each step leading to the final critical habitat designation.
