The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), collectively the Services, withdraw the September 29, 1995, proposed rule (60 FR 50530) to list a distinct population segment (DPS) of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in seven Maine rivers as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (Act) of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). This decision is based on an evaluation of the best scientific data available and consideration of ongoing and planned actions by State and Federal agencies and private entities including the development by the State of Maine of the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Plan for Seven Maine Rivers (Conservation Plan).
