Revised Critical Habitat for the Tidewater Goby (Eucyclogobius newberryi)

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), propose to revise currently designated critical habitat for the tidewater goby
(Eucyclogobius newberryi) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). We originally designated critical habitat for the tidewater goby on November 20, 2000 (65 FR 69693). We are proposing to revise the critical habitat for the tidewater goby to a total of approximately 10,003 acres (ac) (4,050 hectares (ha)). This is an increase of approximately 8,422 ac (3,408 ha) from the currently designated critical habitat. In the previous rule, critical habitat was only designated in Orange and San Diego Counties due to uncertainty over the future listing status of tidewater goby populations to the north. The proposed revised critical habitat is located in Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Sonoma, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles Counties, California.

DATES: We will accept comments from all interested parties until January 29, 2007. We must receive requests for public hearings, in writing, at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section by January 12,
