NOAA to Delist Eastern Population of Stellar Sea Lion from Threatened Species Li

After 19 years, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is going to delist an animal from the threatened species list. The eastern population of the Steller sea lion will be taken off from the list, affirmed NOAA spokeswoman Julie Speegle.

Speegle affirmed that it was in 1994 that the eastern North Pacific gray whale was taken off from the list. It was in the initial months of 2013 that the federal agency has suggested delisting the specie.

As the specie was under the listing, commercial fishermen also protested about the fishing regulations. Jim Balsiger, administrator of NOAA Fisheries' Alaska Region, was of the view that they were happy to know that the specie has made a recovery.

Efforts will continue to take place in order to monitor the population of the eastern population of the Steller sea lion. Jim has further affirmed that they will be asking states to join hands with them.

"While they are being removed from the list of threatened and endangered species, they are still provided a good measure of protection under the Marine Mammal Protection Act", affirmed Speegle. She affirmed that after being listed, an animal is put under monitoring plan that continues for five years.
