Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15307 (Class 7); 15308 (Class 8)
Reasons for Exemption
The exemptions apply to agency actions to protect natural resources and the environment, respectively. This action implements a Depth Constraint and Fleet Advisory, which will have the overall effect of reducing the entanglement risk by prohibiting fishing in areas where whale aggregations are known to be present and educating fishermen of areas of whale presence and entanglement risk. Therefore, this action is the proper subject of CEQA’s Class 7 and 8 categorical exemptions.
