notice increasing the take limit for cormorants

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) today published a notice increasing the take limit for cormorants.

To meet increased needs at aquaculture facilities, we are increasing the annual maximum allowable take of double-crested cormorants through individual depredation permits from 51,571 to 74,396 per year. This level of authorized take will maintain a stable cormorant population at levels as considered current in the 2017 Environmental Assessment.
