Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CCR, Title 14, sections 15307, 15308
Reasons for Exemption
The adopted regulations allow testing the concept of controlling overpopulated sea urchins through recreational diving activities; the regulations extend the existing sunset date to 2029, enabling the experimental management action to continue rather than allowing it to sunset in 2024. By gathering data and information for scientific assessment by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and its agency partners, the project is designed to lead to the restoration of diminishing kelp forests in central and northern California. As such, the proposal is an activity that is the proper subject of CEQA’s Class 6 categorical exemption.
