On April 6, 2015, National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) announced a
90-day finding on a petition to list the Gulf of Mexico Bryde’s whale
(*Balaenoptera
edeni*) as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act.
​ We
determined that the petition presented substantial scientific or commercial
information indicating that the petitioned action may be warranted.
Accordingly,
​we ​
are conducting a review of the status of this species to determine if the
petitioned action is warranted.  To ensure that the status review is
comprehensive, we opened a 60-day public comment period on April 6, 2015,
to solicit information pertaining to this species. The public comment
period is coming to a close soon.  Any information or comments on the
subject action must be received by June 5, 2015.
