<p> US NMFS revises salmon BiOp </p>

The US National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is to issue a revised draft biological opinion (BiOp) on the risks posed by six pesticides to endangered salmon. The NMFS was due to finalise the BiOp by April 30th ( Agrow No 611, p 17), but has negotiated an extension to the legal deadline. The NMFS expects to issue an alternative version of its draft BiOp by May 13th. It is expected to provide more information and “more complete analyses”, reflecting comments made on the earlier draft, the EPA notes. The Agency will seek further comment on the new proposals.
