2019-2020 Station-Specific Hunting and Sport Fishing Regulations >:(

A Proposed Rule by the Fish and Wildlife Service on 06/26/2019

https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/06/26/2019-11443/2019-2020-station-specific-hunting-and-sport-fishing-regulations?utm_source=federalregister.gov&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=subscription+mailing+list

Quotes: "We propose to remove approximately 2,100 regulations that will have no impact on the administration of hunting and sport fishing within the National Wildlife Refuge System. We also propose to simplify over 2,900 refuge-specific regulations to comply with a Presidential mandate to adhere to plain language standards and to reduce the regulatory burden on the public."

"Through these openings and expansions, we are proposing to open or expand an additional 1,451,131 acres to hunting and sport fishing within the National Wildlife Refuge System and the National Fish Hatchery System."

When the mouse population dwindles on the island, Burrowing owls turn to the Ashey Storm-Petrel for it's food supply. Efforts to control the non-native house mice problem in the Farallon Islands have failed. Officials say the mouse population has grown so large that they have altered the ecology of the island.
