Exempt Status
Emergency Project
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 21080(b)(4); 15269(b)(c)
Reasons for Exemption
Regulations concerning the take of spring Chinook salmon (where catch and release, or harvest, constitute take) in the Klamath River Basin are codified in subsection (b )(91.1) of Section 7.50, Title 14, California Code of Regulations (CCR). On July 23, 2018, the Commission received a petition to list Upper Klamath-Trinity Spring Chinook Salmon (UKTSCS) as endangered under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). The petitioners, the Karuk Tribe and the Salmon River Restoration Council, submitted information indicating that declining population trends are evidence of extremely low UKTSCS abundance compared to historical status, and the current low numbers make UKTSCS vulnerable to extinction. See NOE for full details.
