Note: information from the 2000 assessment (COSEWIC in press) is used with respect to the extirpation of the northwest Atlantic population.  Information from that report and from COSEWIC 2006 is used regarding biology and population dynamics of the species.  Where the two reports differ on biological matters, more weight has been given to COSEWIC (2006) which includes the most recent information on species biology.
