NMFS Seeks Comment on ESA Review of North Pacific Right Whale

The U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service seeks comment on NMFS’ 5-year review of the North Pacific right whale (Eubalaena japonica) under the Endangered Species Act. A 5-year review must be based on the best scientific and commercial data available at the time of the review; therefore, NMFS requests submission of any such information on these whales that has become available since the last status review in 2012.

NMFS must receive any information review no later than July 31, 2017, on order to use the information in this review.
