Management Plan for the Olympia oyster (Ostrea conchaphila) in Canada

The Olympia oyster is a marine species and is under the responsibility of the federal government. The Species at Risk Act (SARA, Section 65) requires the competent minister to prepare management plans for species listed as special concern. The Olympia oyster was listed as a species of special concern under SARA in June 2003. The development of this management plan was led by Fisheries and Oceans Canada – Pacific Region, in cooperation and consultation with many individuals, organizations and government agencies, as indicated below. The plan meets SARA requirements in terms of content and process (SARA sections 65-68).

Consultation period: 2009-05-12 to 2009-07-11
