NMFS announced today river herring not threatened or endangered – ESA Listing not Warranted

NOAA Fisheries announced today that listing alewife or blueback herring, collectively known as river herring, as either threatened or endangered under the federal Endangered Species Act is not warranted at this time. However, the agency has provided funding to the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission and we will be working with the Commission and other partners to implement a coordinated coast-wide effort to continue to address data gaps and proactively conserve river herring and their habitat. @noaa.gov
