Fish could get parts of Marine base for habitat
By Terry Rodgers
September 4, 2003

A newly approved legal settlement could result in additional protection
for stream-side habitats in San Diego County, including parts of Camp
Pendleton, essential to the survival of endangered steelhead trout.

The agreement between conservation and fishing groups and the National
Marine Fisheries Service requires the federal agency to re-establish
critical habitat areas for endangered salmon and steelhead populations
throughout the West Coast.

The fisheries service, an agency supervised by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, is required under the agreement to propose
critical habitats by June 2004 and finalize them by January 2005.

Critical habitat is open space deemed essential for the survival and
recovery of a species that has been designated for protection under the
Endangered Species Act.

Three waterways that cross Camp Pendleton  San Mateo Creek, San Onofre
Creek and the Santa Margarita River  could potentially be designated as
critical habitat for endangered southern steelhead trout.
