  • Description:
    This Environmental Assessment (EA) analyses two alternatives and resulting potential impacts of federally funded aquaculture project in Guam. The preferred alternative would support a project that will capture juvenile (dagge) rabbitfish in Guam's nearshore waters that would be grown-out in on-land tanks and then reintroduced to natural habitat at around 6 months. This project will educate Guam youths on socio-cultural importance of rabbitfish, provide youth with outdoor education opportunities related to marine ecology, and teach youth traditional fishing practices. The project may also provide some benefit to the local rabbitfish population by stock enhancement by growing-out juveniles that otherwise would be subject to high natural mortality. The project will use the University of Guam's existing aquaculture facilities and follow established procedures to ensure quality and safety. The project lead would be Guam's 4-H program working in close coordination with the Guam's Fishermen's Cooperative Association. Other Project partners include the University of Guam, and Guam's Department of Agriculture. No significant effects to the human environment are expected to occur as a result of the proposed action.
