Abstract: Consultation is required when a federal action agency determines that a proposed action “may affect” listed species or designated critical habitat. Consultation is concluded after NMFS determines that the action is not likely to adversely affect listed species or critical habitat or issues a Biological Opinion (“Opinion”) that identifies whether a proposed action is likely to jeopardize the continued existence of a listed species, or destroy or adversely modify critical habitat. The Opinion states the amount or extent of incidental take of the listed species that may occur, develops measures (i.e., reasonable and prudent measures -RPMs) to reduce the effect of take, and recommends conservation measures to further the recovery of the species. Notably, no incidental destruction or adverse modification of designated critical habitat can be authorized, and thus there are no RPMs—only reasonable and prudent alternatives that must avoid destruction or adverse modification. This document represents NMFS’s Opinion based on our review of impacts associated with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) proposed action within San Juan, Puerto Rico. This Opinion analyzes the project’s effects on threatened and endangered species and designated critical habitat, in accordance with Section 7 of the ESA. We based it on project information provided by the USACE and other sources of information, including the published literature cited herein.
