12-Month Finding on a Petition to List the Black Teatfish as Threatened or Endangered under the Endangered Species Act


Endangered Species Act
Action Status
Affected Species


We, NOAA Fisheries, have completed a comprehensive status review under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) for the black teatfish (Holothuria nobilis). After reviewing the best scientific and commercial data available, including the H. nobilis Status Review Report, we have determined that listing H. nobilis as a threatened or endangered species under the ESA is not warranted at this time.
