We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce a 12-month finding on a petition to list a distinct population segment (DPS) of the fisher (Martes pennanti) in its U.S. Northern Rocky Mountain range, including portions of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming, as endangered or threatened and designate critical habitat under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). After review of all available scientific and commercial information, we find that listing the fisher in the U.S. Northern Rocky Mountains as threatened or endangered is not warranted at this time.
Agency Contact: Mark Wilson, Field Supervisor, Montana
This is a proposed regulation.
