→ Removing the Borax Lake Chub from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife

Comments Close:

The US Fish and Wildlife Service proposes ‘to remove the Borax Lake chub (currently listed as Gila boraxobius), a fish native to Oregon, from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife on the basis of recovery. This proposal is based on a review of the best available scientific and commercial information, which indicates that the threats to the Borax Lake chub have been eliminated or reduced to the point where the species no longer meets the definition of an endangered or threatened species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended.’ Specific comments or recommendations are invited from ‘Tribal, State, and governmental agencies; the scientific community; industry; and other interested parties... concerning any aspect of this proposed rule.’
