Advocacy Group Intends to Sue over Delayed Designation of Fish Critical Habitat

The Center for Biological Diversity delivered a sixty-day notice of intent to sue the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS). The notice alleges that FWS has violated the Endangered Species Act by failing to designate critical habitat for the Barrens topminnow since adding the imperiled fish to the list of endangered and threatened species in 2019.
