Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 73 / Tuesday, April 16, 2013 / Notices Lake, extremely poor water quality, which occurs periodically throughout the summer, negatively impacts adult survival rates, and although the specific causes are currently unknown, juvenile survival is also low in these populations. The last time a substantial group of juveniles joined the adult populations in Upper Klamath Lake was during the late 1990s (Janney et al. 2008, pp. 1820–1823). For both species, these factors resulted in abundances of spawning individuals in 2007 in Upper Klamath Lake that were roughly 40 to 70 percent of their 2001 levels. Furthermore, entrainment of larvae and small juveniles through diversion structures continues to drain significant numbers of individuals from productive populations into extremely poor habitats, from which return is unlikely. Clear Lake Reservoir has a single spawning tributary with poor connectivity when reservoir levels are low and limited passage for spawning migrants when flows are low, making these populations very vulnerable to drought. Morphological and molecular genetics research indicate that hybridization occurs between shortnose sucker and Klamath largescale suckers throughout the range of shortnose sucker. However, further studies are needed to determine the extent and causes of hybridization. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Recovery Plan Objectives and Criteria The purpose of a recovery plan is to provide a framework for the recovery of species so that protection under the Act is no longer necessary. A recovery plan includes scientific information about the species and provides criteria that enable us to gauge whether downlisting or delisting the species is warranted. Furthermore, recovery plans help guide our recovery efforts by describing actions we consider necessary for each species’ conservation and by estimating time and costs for implementing needed recovery measures. The revised recovery plan contains the following objectives for recovery, which we believe will promote healthy, stable populations of these species: 1. Restore or enhance spawning and nursery habitat in Upper Klamath Lake and Clear Lake Reservoir systems; 2. Reduce negative impacts of poor water quality; 3. Clarify and reduce the effects of non-native organisms on all life stages; 4. Reduce the loss of individuals to entrainment; 5. Establish a redundancy and resiliency enhancement program; 6. Maintain or increase larval production; VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:11 Apr 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 7. Increase juvenile survival and recruitment to spawning populations; and 8. Protect existing and increase the number of recurring, successful spawning populations. As these species meet reclassification and recovery criteria, we review each species’ status and consider each species for reclassification on or removal from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants. 22557 [LLMTC 00900.L16100000.DP0000] individual during normal business hours.
