Availability of Notice of Preparation of a Draft Environmental Impact Report on the Conservation Plan (CP) for the California Commercial Dungeness Crab Fishery (PDF). CDFW is seeking an incidental take permit (ITP) under Section 10 of the federal Endangered Species Act for humpback whale (Central America Distinct Population Segment [DPS] and Mexico DPS), blue whale, and Pacific leatherback sea turtle (“Covered Species”) to provide authorization of limited incidental take of Covered Species by the California commercial Dungeness crab fishery.
