Management Plan for the Shortnose Sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) in Canada

Shortnose Sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) is an aquatic species listed as Special Concern under the Species at Risk Act (SARA). This listing triggers the requirement for a management plan, which aims to identify the measures needed to ensure the species does not become further at risk. The general prohibitions of SARA do not apply to species of Special Concern, and there is no requirement to identify or protect critical habitat.
