Critical Habitat Orders
Critical Habitat of the Eastern Sand Darter (Ammocrypta pellucida) Ontario Populations Order
The long-term objective of the Recovery Strategy is to maintain self-sustaining, extant populations and to restore self-sustaining populations to formerly occupied habitats, where feasible. Efforts to achieve both the short-term and long-term goals are ongoing and are supported through measures outlined in the Recovery Strategy. Present threats to the Eastern Sand Darter as identified in the Recovery Strategy, include turbidity and sediment loading, contaminants and toxic substances, nutrient loading, barriers to movement, altered flow regimes, shoreline modifications, incidental harvest, and invasive species and disease.
