Response Statement - Little Quarry Lake Limnetic Threespine Stickleback

This small, slender-bodied freshwater fish is a unique Canadian endemic that is restricted to one small lake in coastal British Columbia. The wildlife species is highly susceptible to extinction from aquatic invasive species that have been observed to cause rapid extinction of similar species in at least two other lakes. Many invasive aquatic species already occur in southwestern British Columbia, and any range expansion or introduction of new invasive species to Little Quarry Lake would likely lead to the extinction of this species.
