Affected Species
Banggai Cardinalfish


We, NOAA Fisheries, announce receipt of a petition to promulgate a rulemaking under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) to provide for the conservation of the Banggai cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni). Specifically, the petition requests that we extend the prohibitions of the ESA to this species, including prohibitions on import, export, and all commercial activities for both wild and captive-bred populations. We solicit information and comments that may be relevant to our analysis of protective regulations.
