Management Plan for the Banded Killifish (Fundulus diaphanus), Newfoundland Population, in Canada

The Newfoundland population of Banded Killifish (Fundulus diaphanus) has been listed as a species of special concern under the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) and as a vulnerable species under the Newfoundland and Labrador Endangered Species Act (NL ESA). While there is no evidence to suggest that this species' range or population numbers have decreased on the Island of Newfoundland, the Banded Killifish's limited area of occupancy, and clustered distribution pattern makes the species particularly sensitive to catastrophic events or localized perturbations.

Consultation period: 2011-02-09 to 2011-04-10
