Recovery Strategy for the Eastern Sand Darter (Ammocrypta pellucida) in Canada
The eastern sand darter [Ammocrypta pellucida (Agassiz, 1863)] is a small benthic and translucent fish whose North American range is discontinuous and composed of two disjunct areas. One element occurs in the Great Lakes and Ohio River drainage, while the other occurs in Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence River. In Ontario, it has been collected from shallow habitats in Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair, and from the Grand, Sydenham and Thames rivers. In Quebec, eastern sand darter occur, for the most part, in the St. Lawrence and its tributaries between Lake of Two Mountains and Leclercville, downstream from Lake St. Pierre. The species was reported in a few tributaries in six areas of the province: Centre du Quebec, Lanaudière, Laval, Maurice, Montérégie and Montreal.
