On October 6, 2010 NMFS announced that it had determined that listing as threatened is warranted for the GOM DPS. Stakeholders will have until January 4, 2011 to submit comments on the listing. Four public hearings will be held on the proposed listings, including one in Portland, Maine, on November 3, 2010. Interestingly, in one location the NMFS Federal Register notice refers not to the Gulf of Maine DPS, but to the “Gulf of Mexico (GOM) DPS.” Some have wondered whether that’s the reason NMFS believes the GOM DPS of Atlantic sturgeon qualifies as a threatened species under the ESA.
