Greetings MARMAM,

NOAA Fisheries 5-year status review of the Saimaa ringed seal under the
Endangered Species Act is now available at -

The Saimaa ringed seal (*Phoca hispida saimensis*) was listed under the
Endangered Species Act (ESA) as endangered in 1993.  NOAA Fisheries has
completed a review of the Saimaa seal's ESA listing status.  NOAA Fisheries
is recommending that the Saimaa seal remain classified as endangered
because the seal’s demography places it at high risk of extinction, and
major threats have not been fully addressed. The Saimaa ringed seal is
found in the freshwater Lake Saimaa in eastern Finland.

Thank you,

Jonathan Shannon
