  • Description:
    "The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to issue a scientific research permit to the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control-Division of Fish and Wildlife (DNREC-DFW), Dover, Delaware, for takes of shortnose sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) in the wild, pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The primary objective of the proposed research would be to locate and document early juvenile (< 500 mm total length) shortnose sturgeon nursery areas in the Delaware River, and to assess their individual movement patterns, seasonal movements, home ranges, and habitat use through the use of telemetry. The permit would be valid for five years from the date of issuance and would authorize non-lethal sampling methods on up to 100 shortnose sturgeon annually. Research activities would include gillnetting, temporary holding post-capture, measuring (length, weight, photos), genetic tissue sampling, anesthesia, PIT, Floy and sonic tagging. One incidence of unintentional mortality or serious injury is proposed over the life of the five year permit"--P.
