The Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho Sues US Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service over Midas Golden Meadows Project

The Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho has sued three US federal agencies over the approval of Golden Meadows exploration project by a Midas Gold. The lawsuit filed in US District Court with the Idaho Conservation League, alleges that the US Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service failed to conduct in-depth environmental assessments before permitting Midas Gold a three-year exploration grant. According to the lawsuit, during the project period, the company will perform about 43,800 one-way vehicle trips through the zigzag roads near the South Fork of the Salmon River and two of its tributaries. Nez Perce claimed that increased truck traffic and possible fuel spills could potentially impact upon the streams containing fish listed under the Endangered Species Act, such as the chinook salmon, steelhead and bull trout. The tribe further alleged that the Golden Meadows project violates the 1855 treaty it has with the US, that provides tribal members with rights for fishing, hunting, and other rights on lands in and bordering the reservation. The lawsuit claims that the National Environmental Protection Act requires the Forest Service to undertake critical evaluation of projects impact on the environment, which the agency failed to do.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Issues Proposed Rule About National Marine Sanctuaries Regulations on Introduced Species

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has issued a proposed rule called: Gulf of the Farallones and Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuaries Regulations on Introduced Species. The proposed rule, published in the Federal Register on April 17, 2014 by Daniel J. Basta, Director, Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, states: On March 18, 2013 (78 FR 16622), NOAA proposed to prohibit the introduction of introduced species into the state waters of Gulf of the Farallones and Monterey Bay national marine sanctuaries (GFNMS and MBNMS, respectively). On March 27, 2014 (79 FR 17073) NOAA proposed to amend the March 2013 proposed rule to allow GFNMS and MBNMS to authorize certain introduced species of shellfish from commercial mariculture projects in all state waters of the sanctuaries. The comment period on this amendment closed on April 11, 2014. In response to significant public interest in this amended proposed action, NOAA is re-opening the public comment period until May 5, 2014.
