Five-Year Review for the Sei Whale


Endangered Species Act
Action Status
Affected Species


NOAA Fisheries announces a 5-year review of sei whales (Balaenoptera borealis) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA). A 5-year review is based on the best scientific and commercial data available at the time of the review; therefore, we are requesting submission of any such information on sei whales that has become available since that has become available since their last status review in 1999.
