Critical Habitat Orders
Critical Habitat of the Eastern Sand Darter (Ammocrypta pellucida) Quebec Populations Order
The objective of the Recovery Strategy over the long term (20 years) is to promote the growth of existing populations to ensure their viability and, wherever possible, to restore historical populations that have disappeared. The short-term (within five years) objective of the Recovery Strategy is to maintain Eastern Sand Darter populations throughout the species’ distribution in Quebec and prevent their decline. Efforts to meet the short- and long-term goals are ongoing and supported by the measures described in the Recovery Strategy. Current threats to the Eastern Sand Darter (Quebec populations), as identified in the Recovery Strategy, include increased sediment input and siltation, alteration of flow regimes and fluctuation in water levels, presence of contaminants, nutrient loading and barriers to movement.
