A database established on the ‘‘New Zealand Mudsnail in the Western USA’’ Web site (http://www.esg.montana.edu/ aim/mollusca/nzms/) is being used to track new populations and keep people informed about the latest research. A map showing affected watersheds is kept current by the Department of Ecology at Montana State UniversityBozeman. In 2003, the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force (ANSTF), which is authorized by the Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act of 1990 (16 U.S.C. 4701 et seq.), established the New Zealand Mudsnail Management Plan Working Group (Working Group) to create a national management and control plan for New Zealand mudsnails. The goal of the national management and control plan for New Zealand mudsnails is to prevent and delay the spread to new areas of the United States, reduce the impacts of existing and new populations, and continue developing information to meet this goal. The Working Group developed the following objectives: (1) Identify foci, pathways and vectors; (2) develop methods of detecting new populations; (3) develop strategies and methods to control and manage populations; (4) develop further understanding of ecological and economic impacts; and (5) increase public understanding of the need to deal with New Zealand mudsnails and gain political support for implementing national plan objectives. We are seeking public comments on all aspects of the Working Group’s draft ‘‘National Management and Control Plan for the New Zealand Mudsnail (Potamopyrgus antipodarum).’’ Submit your comments by the date listed in DATES using one of the methods listed in ADDRESSES. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Authority: The authority for this action is the Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act of 1990 (16 U.S.C. 4701 et seq.).
