Consultation Documents

Silver Chub (Great Lakes - Upper St. Lawrence populations)

The Silver Chub (Great Lakes-Upper St. Lawrence populations) has been reassessed from Special Concern to Endangered by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC). In 2012, COSEWIC split the populations into two separate units: 1) the Saskatchewan - Nelson River; and 2) the Great Lakes - Upper St. Lawrence. The Saskatchewan - Nelson River populations are not considered to be at risk. Based on its previous assessment, the Silver Chub is currently listed under the federal Species at Risk Act as Special Concern. As a species of Special Concern, a management plan has been developed. The recent change in the COSEWIC assessment will require a new listing decision under the Species at Risk Act. If the population is legally upgraded to Endangered, a recovery strategy will be developed.

Consultation period: 2014-01-24 to 2014-03-31
