NOAA Fisheries published a proposed rule to list the U.S. population of smalltooth sawfish as endangered on April 16, 2001. After considering public comments on the proposed rule, NOAA Fisheries issued a final rule to list the distinct population segment (DPS) of smalltooth sawfish in the United States as an endangered species.
