U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service seeks public comment regarding listing Eagle Lake trout as an endangered or threatened species
Sept. 5, 2012 — In a development that could have far-reaching ramifications for the economy at Eagle Lake and Lassen County, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, today announced a 90-day finding on a petition to list the Eagle Lake rainbow trout as an endangered or threatened species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
Based on its review, the federal agency finds the petition presents substantial scientific or commercial information indicating listing the Eagle Lake rainbow trout may be warranted.
Therefore, with the publication of this notice, the agency is initiating a review of the status of the subspecies to determine if listing the Eagle Lake rainbow trout is warranted.
To ensure that this status review is comprehensive, the agency requests scientific and commercial data and other information regarding this subspecies. Based on the status review, the agency will issue a 12-month finding on the petition, which will address whether the petitioned action is warranted.
