NMFS Extends Comment Period on Western DPS of Steller Sea Lion

On February 6, 2018, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) announced an extension of the public comment period for the 5-year review of the endangered Western Distinct Population Segment (DPS) of the Steller sea Lion (Eumetopias jubatus).  The Western DPS includes Steller sea lions that reside in the central and western Gulf of Alaska, Aleutian Islands, as well as those that inhabit coastal waters in Asia.  According to the Federal Register notice, the extension of the comment period to April 6, 2018 was issued in response to a request for additional time.  In addition to providing notice of the extension, NMFS also corrected the electronic link for submission of comments via the Federal eRulemaking Portal, which was provided in the additional notice.
