STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES NAMED IN LITIGATION
Commercial fishing groups file complaint regarding Endangered Species Act
Litigation was filed today alleging that several agencies and their representatives have failed to abide by the Endangered Species Act, (ESA), in the protection of sea turtles.
Filed in Raleigh, North Carolina by two commercial fishing organizations, the complaint requests that the Court rule that the defendants have violated and continue to violate Section 9 of the ESA and have allowed the recreational hook and line fishery to "operate in a manner that has caused and is continuing to cause the illegal take of endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtles and the unauthorized take of threatened loggerhead, green and leatherback sea turtles". They further request that the Court order the defendants to implement regulations in the recreational hook and line fishery until they receive an incidental take permit, and further, for the federal agencies to conduct abundance surveys and nesting population surveys. The groups filed a letter of intent to sue in March of this year.
