Response to a Petition to List the Insular Population of Hawaiian False Killer Whales Under the ESA

Abstract: Petition to list the Hawaiian Insular Population of False Killer Whales received in October 2009. Initial response is for NMFS to make a 90-day finding to determine if the petition presents substantial scientific or commercial information indicating that the petitioned action may be warranted. If so, then a status review is conducted, which leads to a 12-month finding of either not warranted or warranted. If warranted, a proposed listing rule is published, which may lead to a final listing rule.
