Recovery Strategy for the Rocky Mountain Sculpin (Cottus sp.), Eastslope populations, in Canada

8. Measuring progress

Upon completion of this recovery strategy, the Rocky Mountain Sculpin Recovery Team may meet periodically or at such as time when new information is available. At that time, the performance and implementation of the recovery strategy and the development of any associated action plans for achieving the stated population and distribution objective will be considered and or reviewed. During the fifth year, the overall recovery strategy will be re-visited to determine whether:

  • the population and distribution objective is still valid or need to be amended or;
  • a fundamental change in approach to addressing the population and distribution objective may be warranted.

Any recommendations by the Recovery Team will be forwarded to Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and Alberta Sustainable Resource Development (ASRD) through the respective chairs. Evaluations shall be based on the comparison of specific performance measures to the stated recovery objectives. Whenever possible, scientific studies will also be peer reviewed.
