90-Day Finding on Petitions To List the Porbeagle Shark as Threatened or Endangered Under the Endangered Species Act
Monday, March 30, 2015

The National Marine Fisheries Service is accepting two 2010 petitions to list porbeagle sharks (Lamna nasus) on the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973, as amended. This action is being taken in response to a December 12, 2014, U.S. District Court decision that our previous rejection of the petitions in 2010 was arbitrary and capricious. To ensure a comprehensive review, we are soliciting scientific and commercial data and other information relevant to the status of porbeagle sharks worldwide. We will publish the results of that review and will make a finding as to whether the petitioned action is or is not warranted on or before December 12, 2015.

Information and comments on the subject action must be received by May 12, 2015. For additional information please contact Kimberly Damon-Randall, NMFS, Greater Atlantic Region, (978) 281-9328; or Marta Nammack, NMFS, HQ, (301) 427-8469. The Proposed Rule can be found at: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/03/27/2015-07073/endangered-and-threatened-species-90-day-finding-on-two-petitions-to-list-porbeagle-sharks#h-4
