Brine shrimp harvester update

January 28, 2010

Dear Brine Shrimp Harvester:

A sampling run on the south arm of Great Salt Lake was conducted on January 27, 2010. The enumeration and analysis have been completed. All presented values are per liter of lake water.

We have analyzed these values and compared them with previous sampling runs and determined that it is in the best interest of the resource to discontinue brine shrimp harvesting for this season.

Accordingly, we are closing this harvest season pursuant to Rule R657-52-12(3). The brine shrimp harvesting season, which is currently suspended will not be reopened.

The cumulative harvest poundage totals through harvest day January 11, 2010 are listed below:

Thank you for your support of our work at The Great Salt Lake Ecosystem Program.

Great Salt Lake Ecosystem Program Manager
