Assessment Summary – May 2003
Banded Killifish (Newfoundland Population)
Reason for designation:
The population is separated from others by a major barrier to movement, i.e. 200 km of ocean. Newfoundland populations have a very limited area of occupancy. The possibility of range expansion is limited by steep gradients and impassable rapids and/or falls. Habitat degradation resulting from proposed logging would negatively impact populations in some areas.
Last assessment based on an update status report.
