Management plan for the River Redhorse (Moxostoma carinatum) in Canada [Proposed]
The River Redhorse is a member of the genus Moxostoma in the Catostomidae family. The River Redhorse is a large sucker, with adults generally measuring more than 500 mm in total length (TL); some specimens can exceed 700 mm TL. It has deeply plicate (folded) lips without transverse ridges. Even as adults, it may sometimes be confused with other suckers (particularly Moxostoma species) by those less experienced. However, there are several criteria that distinguish it from other species with which they live sympatrically in Quebec and Ontario.
