GLIN==> US-FWS Wants Lacey Act Listing for Injurious Silver Carp



SUMMARY: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to add all forms 
(diploid and triploid) of live silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys 
molitrix), gametes, eggs, and hybrids; and all forms (diploid and 
triploid) of live largescale silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys harmandi), 
gametes, eggs, and hybrids to the list of injurious fish, mollusks, and 
crustaceans under the Lacey Act. This listing would have the effect of 
prohibiting the importation and interstate transportation of any live 
animal, gamete, viable egg, or hybrid of the silver carp and largescale 
silver carp, without a permit in limited circumstances. The best 
available information indicates that this action is necessary to 
protect the interests of human beings, and wildlife and wildlife 
resources, from the purposeful or accidental introduction and 
subsequent establishment of silver carp and largescale silver carp 
populations in ecosystems of the United States.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before November 6, 2006.
