SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are revising the critical habitat designation for the tidewater goby (Eucyclogobius newberryi) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). In total, approximately 10,003 acres (ac) (4,050 hectares (ha)) fall within the boundaries of the final revised critical habitat designation. The revised critical habitat is located in Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Sonoma, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles Counties, California. This rule becomes effective on March 3, 2008.
- According to FWS, the final rule, final economic analysis, and map of critical habitat will be available on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov and http://www.fws.gov/ventura.
