Document Description
In 2016, CDFW was awarded a Section 6 grant to restore habitat for the Mohave Tui Chub (Siphateles bicolor mohavensis) population at the two Camp Cady Wildlife Area ponds. Mohave Tui Chubs are federal- and state-endangered, state fully protected species. This project serves to meet a subset of the grant objectives, while avoiding and minimizing impacts to tricolored blackbirds. Cattail encroachment currently threatens the existence of the Mohave Tui Chub population at Camp Cady Wildlife Area West Pond. This threat must be abated to comport with recovery plan requirements, and indeed to prevent imminent loss of the fish.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15307
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is an activity within the Class 7 categorical exemption, because it is a wildlife preservation activity of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife that is 1) limited in scope; and 2) no serious or major disturbances to environmental resources are expected. The key fish species benefited by the project is federal- and state-endangered and a California fully protected species. This project will promote the recovery efforts for Mohave Tui Chub in an important refuge location, critical in maintaining the ability of the species to persist.
