  • Description:
    A 5-year review is a periodic analysis of a species’ status conducted to ensure that the listing classification of a species currently listed as threatened or endangered on the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (50 CFR 17.11-17.12) is accurate. The 5-year review is required by section 4(c)(2) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA), and is based on the best scientific and commercial data available at the time of review. 5-year reviews generally focus on new information since the last status review, or 5-year review. The scope of the 5- year review may vary depending on the species and situation, and can be complex, particularly if a species is wide-ranging or a large amount of new information is available for the species. However, for many species, a 5-year review will entail a straightforward summary of relevant new information and an evaluation of how the species’ status and threats have changed in comparison to the last status or 5-year review. This bibliography was developed in support of the 2019 5-year review and focuses on any relevant literature related to Atlantic Sturgeon since 2010. It is intended as a reference resource for ESA staff of NOAA’s Atlantic Sturgeon Recovery Program in their work to compile and summarizing any relevant new information. The focus of the literature is on the five distinct population segments (DPS) listed as either endangered or threatened under the ESA in 2012. These DPS include Carolina DPS, Chesapeake Bay DPS, New York Bight DPS, South Atlantic DPS (endangered) and Gulf of Maine DPS (threatened). It is organized into seven sections: Assessment Methodology, Genetic Assessment, Habitat Use and Distribution, Life History Characteristics, Risk Assessment, Stock Status, and Policy, Legal, and Recommendations
