Enadangerd Species Act Status Review for Atlantic Acropora

March 03, 2005

Published Date: 2005

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) received a petition to list three Atlantic corals (Acropora palmata, A. cervicornis and A. prolifera) as either threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Following NMFS’ positive 90­ day finding, wherein the petition was determined to contain substantial information, an Atlantic Acropora Biological Review Team (BRT) was established to review the status of the corals concerned.
