Southeast Alaska Herring Stock ESA request for Information

In 2007, the Juneau Sierra Club petitioned for protection of the Lynn Canal herring under the Endangered Species Act.  In April 2008, NMFS announced that they were denying the petition on Lynn Canal herring as it was not a distinct population segement but that the Southeast stocks were a distinct population segment and it was warranted to assess this population.  NMFS is requesting information, data and comments pertinent to a risk assement as part of a status review of the Southeast Alaska population of Pacific herring.  Comments are due December 8,2008
